Hi, this is Jim with Crucial Vacuum,

I'm unsure as to the make and model of your vacuum, but many different vacuums have height adjustments, and various carpet modes to make it easier when vacuuming. These adjustment options should be clearly labeled somewhere on your vacuum.

For instance, if you have the adjusted height set to low the brushroll will experience more resistance from the carpet and be harder to push. You can find these settings and their full functionality in your vacuums manual.

We had an older dyson vacuum that worked great until it had to be replaced and now our new one it works great on short carpet but is very difficult to push on thicker carpet.


Hi Ronnie, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty using your new Dyson vacuum on this particular type of deeper-pile carpet. It's possible your new machine has higher suction at the cleaner head, and this could mean it needs slightly higher push-force on certain carpets with deeper, denser pile, or thick underlay. You may find it helps to use the vacuum with the brush bar switched - carpet manufacturers will sometimes advise vacuuming deep-pile carpets in this way.

However, I would encourage you to get in touch with us directly so we can take some further details about the issue. When you have your Dyson vacuum easily to hand, please call the Dyson Customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU). Our experts will be happy to discuss your concerns.

We'll look forward to speaking with you.

My Shark Navigator works very well, great suction. However, it is very hard to push on carpet. Can this be adjusted?


Two things make carpet vacing easier. First is the floor piece. It should be a smooth slight rounded shaped piece with just a small line of bristles or none at all. Second is mostly for area rugs is to open the suction vent usually located near the handle. That allows some air in which takes suction away from the floor piece allowing it to slide on the rug rather than drag it around.

Why is hoover vacuum so hard to push


I don't know what model vacuum you have but if there is a way of adjusting the amount of suction; try reducing it.
Otherwise, it could be the nape of the carpet.

Self adjusting head plate not adjusting to hard floor


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty pushing your DC41 on hard flooring. However I'm confident I can help you resolve this - if you can email me directly at help@dyson.co.uk, I'll be in touch as soon as possible to take some further details. If you have the facility to attach a clear photo of the underside of your vacuum's cleaner head to your email, that would also be very useful to me.

I'll look forward to hearing from you.

There is too much suction even with the hand tools on Hoover wind tunnel. Can i adjust suction somehow?


Hi, it's Jeremy from Crucial Vacuum.

If there is too much suction, adjust the nozzle control knob to a higher setting. The knob is located on the front of the vacuum at the bottom. For optimal cleaning efficiency a low setting should be used for most types of carpet and for hardwood floors, tile, and deep carpets use a higher setting.

Hoover Windtunnel carpet level adjustment


The suction is so great that it sucks up your carpet, then nothing works. I get my children to stand on the corners/edges of the rug so that it stays perfectly flat on the floor while I vacuum. Or, you can turn off the brush roller (set it to "hard floor" setting). Or, tip the vacuum cleaner's front up slightly while vacuuming, to reduce suction.

No suction when carpet cleaning. Also won't stand upright


Its possible that it may be blocked in the foot of the vaccum. try going through your instruction manual to locate details on how to disassemble the suction brush and connecting ducts. If you dont have one then use this link to download it. http://ubermanuals.com/node/1870

Let me know how you got on


Cheers
