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.

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.

Chess piece lost in shark navigator rotator


You must extract the chess piece or else it could move within the unit and cause further damage. If you cannot open the shark and get to the intake section, then have a service do it for you.

Shark navigator n22


What I tried and it worked for me is to losen the hose slightly from where it connects to the long plastic tube on the side to allow the little hole to show. What that does is to lessen the suction power a little since the problem is that the suction is too powerful on the carpet and the roller freezes.

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.
