Question about Dyson Vacuums

Open Question

When we purchased our cordless vacuum (v8), I noticed a head for use on throw rugs that would not suck them off the floor. Do you still offer this head?

The head allowed some air to exit through the head so the vacuum would not suck up the rug during use.

SOURCE: rug and floor nozzle brush not moving

What I had to do was take apart the vacuum head...which is very confusing, and the manual doesn't tell you how...the "secret" is to use a flat screwdriver to pop out the little wheels...there are two other screws "hidden" beneath them. Be careful as this exposes all the electrical parts as well - make sure you're unplugged! : )

SOURCE: Rug Beater isn't rotating during use

This defintiely sounds like your belt has broken or slipped off the motor pulley. The brushes on your vacuum are driven by a belt that attaches to the motor shaft on one end, and the roller brush on the other end.

If you really do have the Bissell 6594 model that you posted this repair under, then to check your belt, simply turn the vacuum upside down, and remove the four screws from the plate that covers the brushes. The bottom plate will then lift off, and you will have access to the brush and belt area of your machine.

You'll probably notice that the belt is either split completely, or is stretched out, and fallen off the motor shaft. Even if the belt is still completely circular, it may be a good idea to go ahead and replace the belt anyway. We recommend replacing the belt on your vacuum every 6 months even if they don't break, as they don't perform nearly as well when the machine has a fresh, tight belt on it.

The model 6594 uses the Bissell Style 7,9,10, etc. belt. It's the most popular Bissell belt on the market. If you don't already have a new belt handy, here's a link to your belt on our website if you need to purchase one:
Bissell Style 7/9/10/12/14/16 Upright Vacuum Cleaner Belts (2 Pack), Part Number 32074

Here's link to the Bissell Owners Manual for your model that will walk you through step by step how to replace the belt on your machine:

SOURCE: where is the reset button on shark navigator.

I'm not sure it has one. Check the owner's manual though.
Try this. Turn off vacuum. Unplug it. Make sure there are no clogs in main hose, power head intake tube, or intake inside tank. Plug it in, turn it on, and let us know what happens.

WILL i HARM the hardwood floor under my Area rug to be shampooed. No pad underneath


Simple answer: YES

Anytime you are sampooing anything the under surface will be exposed to the cleaner. Move throw rugs to a location safe for the cleaner. Kitchen floors are usually good for this or a concrete floor. Remember to let carpet dry completely before replacing it. It will be lighter when dry so easier to move. But as a glass on a wood side table leaving a ring a wet carpet can leave a shaped stain.

Suction when vacuuming


Some vacuums have a valve or collar near the handle that you can twist to adjust the amount of suction on the vacuum. If you open it a little it will stop sucking up your throw rugs. IF the problem is not enough vacuum then the HEPA filter may be clogged. It's usually a rectangular filter in a plastic frame. That has to be changed occasionally or the suction of the vacuum will continue to drop off.

Cannot push vacuum forward on new area rug. But will work pulling backward. Still works on old area rugs and floors.


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty using your DC25 on this particular new area rug. As you've confirmed the vacuum works as normal on other rugs and hard floors, it doesn't sound like there's a fault with the vacuum itself.

As lightweight area rugs are not fixed to the floor, it's possible for the rug to lift and seal against the soleplate of the cleaner head, due to your DC25's powerful suction. As this will reduce the amount of airflow entering the cleaner head, you may need to use more push force than usual when vacuuming this type of flooring.

We would encourage you to check directly with the rug manufacturer, as they'll be best placed to provide information on correctly caring for this particular floor type.

If you'd like to discuss the issue you're experiencing with our experts, you're welcome to call us directly on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Hi Brad, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty pushing your DC33 on this particular rug. DC33 is a powerful upright vacuum, but we wouldn't normally expect it to be excessively hard to push on any domestic floor surface. However, we may have a tip to resolve this, and we'd value to the chance to discuss this with you directly.

I'm not sure this is my model but the large attachement for vacuuming rugs is throwing dirt back onto the floor. There is no clog and when this piece is off there is good suction into the hose


Sometimes there can be something simple as a piece of paper inside the head stoping the air flow up the hose. The next thing to do is to remove the bottom of the head and look inside. Follow the air path through and make sure there isn't anything keeping the air from going up the hose. Hope this helps

Beater bar sucked up corner of throw rug and now it doesn't turn.


Take the head down and clean the brush and when you put it back together it should be back in sync.
