Upright cleaner height is mostly adjusted by raising or lowering the rear wheels with the control for the purpose.

Cylinder cleaners mostly have a closable air vent on or near the handgrip of the hose.

Your vacuum should have and adjustment for the "depth of pile" of the carpet.
If it has no such thing at all, ( a few do not,) one solution is to pull it backwards slowly instead of pushing it.
It should clean forwards as well as backwards for you.
God bless your efforts.

When I'm vacuuming it's very hard to push


There are many reasons, perhaps yours is one of these.
1) The carpet/bare floor selector.
This adjuster raises and lowers the front of the vacuum according to the depth of the carpet
. A thick carpet has the wheels dropped way down away from the front of the machine, a smooth floor or a very short pile carpet has the wheels up high , close to the front of the machine.
Having the selector set wrong can cause this problem.
2) Check to see if the front wheels are rolling freely.
If one or both are clogged with hair, carpet strands, string, etc., the vacuum can be hard to push.
God bless your efforts.

My Riccar 8850 is very hard to push, even moreso on heavier pile carpet. Know any reason why? Also see my "more details" section.


adjust the setting on the vacuum head to pile or plush carpet
it is a simple lever that raises the hood to allow more air under it to make it easier to push

Worked well until purchased new thick carpet,now can't push it.cleaned &changed all filters. cleaned brush. tried removing rubber string gasket. no help .


Barry,
Most vacuum cleaners will not roll well on real thick carpets. There are only a couple of vacuums out there that will work on thick carpet. The Oreck Magnesium models and most of the Miele vacuums will work on thick carpet and some manufacturers of carpet will tell you to use one of those two brands. Hope this helps!

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.

I can't push my Dyson Dc33 on my new carpet..it works backwards ok but not pushing forward?


Hi Fran, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC33 is engineered to work effectively on both hard and carpeted flooring. The cleaner head is engineered to adjust automatically for different floor types and carpet piles. You can also turn off the brush bar for hard floors and delicate rugs, using the brush control on the cleaner head.

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty pushing your machine forward on this particular type of new carpeting. If your DC33 worked effectively before the new carpeting was fitted, it doesn't sound like there's an issue with the vacuum itself. However, we'd appreciate the opportunity to take some further details about the issue, and may be able to suggest a resolution. You may also want to consider contacting the carpeting manufacturer directly, as they should be able to recommend the best way of caring for this specific carpeting.

When you have your DC33 easily to hand, please give the Dyson Customer Helpline a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

We'll look forward to speaking with you.

Why does my kirby shake ?


If your Kirby is just sitting on a hard surface and is shaking, something is either on the fan or brushroller putting it out of alignment. Here is how to change the fan / impeller if broken.
how to change Kirby fan / impeller.

If it shakes while you are pushing against the carpeting you can try adjusting the height of the brush until it is just touching the carpeting. Some thick pile carpeting the Kirby will still shake or jump on, the strong suction causes it to trip over the thick pile that is lifted up when vacuuming.
