Question about Dyson V6 Absolute Bagless Cordless Hand Vac

1 Answer

My dyson v6 stopped getting power to the motor tools. none of them will spin. help

I emptied the canister and when i put it all back together no power would get to any of the power tools. i wonder if it has anything to do with the connection prone or not because it still has plenty of suction.

SOURCE: Dyson has lost suction and loud noise from base(?),

I had the same problem, from right out of the box. Now that I just threw mine out, I see this site that indicates there's a fix for it:
http://ths.gardenweb.com/forums/load/cleaning/msg0415060828462.html

And search for other sites isung "dyson grinding" or similar.

Since I was an early adopter (had one as soon as they came stateside), I did not have the benefit of countless others having the same problem, I just attributed it to a junky design, since so much else about this vacuum was poorly designed, like the seals, hoses, etc.

Give them a call, and good luck! I might rescue mine from the heap and do the same.

With the DC14 in its upright position, and looking from the back, there is an access hatch just to the right and bottom of the dust canister. Remove this and check for any obstruction. With the hatch still removed, tilt the handle back (as if vacuuming a floor), and you should spot that the mechanism in to which the access hatch fits changes over from one hole to another. This is how suction is transfreered from the telescopic arm to the brush bar when the unit is taken out of the upright position.
With the handle tilted back, the hole you can see is one end of a flexible pipe that leads to the brush bar. Check for any blockage and/or foriegn objects. If there is no obvious problem, you'll need to check the other end of the pipe. You can do this by removing the toe plate on the bottom of the brush bar area. The plate is held by 3 or 4 half turn fasterners - a 5 pence piece is ideal for undoing these.

If still no joy, the only other thing it might be is that the brush bar isnt spinning - this isnt actually lack of suction, but without brush rotation any upright hoover is far less effieicnt at picking up bits from the floor. Brushes not spinning on a DC14 is quiet a difficult thing to fix on a DC14 as there are two separate rubber belts, one of which is hidden under a plastic cover. There is also a clutch mechanism between the belts that can cause problems some times.

It sounds like the motor is functioning properly and the filters are fine. Check very thoroughly for clogs in the parts after the canister (down where the brush is, etc.)

I want to open the cannister to work on the cord rewinder but I don't want to force it and I am unable to locate/see how the back latches work.


This should really be done by an authorized Aerus Electrolux servich technician. I've seen quite a few dismantled machines come into the shop because the owner couldn't figure out how to put it back together properly. And the cordwinder can be even more difficult. The service techs really don't like to put together a dismantled machine.
There are no back latches.

However, to open the canister:
You will need a flathead screwdrive and a hammer.
1. Remove bag
2. Lay on one side, with bag door open all the way
3. Push tip of screwdriver in the back of side rubber strip.
4. Use hammer to hit screwdrive toward front of vacuum.
5. When strip is 5-6 inches out, grasp with fingers and and slide gently out the front of vacuum.
6. Repeat for other side.
7. Lay machine on it's top and lift bottom half of canister off top half.
8. You now have access to cordwinder. I suggest you take notes as you go so you remember where everything goes.

Putting it back together isn't this easy.

Hi, im hoovering my mothers house whilst she is away, using a vitesse pet lover, but now the cylinder is full and i can work out how to open it so i can empty it. thanks


Lift the catch where the canister lid joins the handle, then pull the whole assembly away from the handle.  Take the assembly to wherever you want to empty it, then press the button at the bottom front of the canister.  The bottom swings down and the muck falls out.  In the ideal world, you will then take the lid off by twisting it slightly anti-clockwise (you'll see the "lock" and "open" markings on the canister rim), remove the pleated filter (again by twisting anti-clockwise), give it a good shake and then brush between the pleats.  Reverse this process to put it back together, and away you go again!
I hope this helps. Any more questions, just ask. Please remember to rate my response, thank you.

My fantom vacuum stopped sucking stuff up


Most likely there is a clog, either in the 'knuckle' between the power head and the wand, or in the connection where the hose comes into the canister. In either case, unplug the hose and you should plainly see it.

Canister will not release


I've done that.
There is a stem that runs down the center of the cyclone that releases the bottom. You didn't get that stem back in place. The only thing you can do is pry it open, hope is doesn't break, and put that cyclone back together correctly.

I've never broke one, but I had to pull pretty hard. Thought I was going to.

Good Luck

I was able to get the whole thing reassembled.  If there is something specific that you are having trouble with let me know.  Everything snaps into its specific spot--it is just tricky to get it all lined up.
