Have you accidentally switched off the beater bar via the dial on the head? Some models have a 'hard floors' and a 'carpets' setting (which disengages/engages the beater bar).

My Dyson started making a loud noise when in "carpet" mode. After reading a ton of forums I thought it was the clutch assembly. Got a new one on eBay for a great price. Somewhat hard to replace, but thanks to this YouTube video, I was able to get it in: http://www.ezvacuum.com/dyson-dc07dc14-clutch-assembly-90025204-genuine-p-1636.html

HOWEVER this did not resolve the issue. I realized the beater bar was not spinning or was slipping. I thought I cleaned it all out but realized you need to take the beater bar out and pop the end cap and clean out the INSIDE of the beater bar (tons of lint and cat hair). I additionally sprayed WD40 in there.

It spins great now and in the end I think that's all I had to do was clean out the cat hair build up inside the beater bar. But now I have a new clutch & belts too. Hopefully won't have issues anytime soon.

DC07 works with the hose - but not when upright


Check the actual brush bar is moving. If it is then there's definately a clog and it could well be behind the beater bar. If you can remove the sole plate (which is the grid in front of the beater bar) then undo it and check dirt behind the beater bar, belt and main dust channel. Also check the main inspection air ways and if the beater bar is clogged with hair, clean it off.

Hi
we had the same problem loads of suction on the pipe but did not touch any thing when in upright mode. The brush bar was rotating but did not seem to be doing anything to the carpet. when we looked at the machine sideways the plate that surrounds the beater bar was not parralell to the floor The front was meeting the foor so from the hoovering position it looked fine but the back was tipping up under the vacuum lifting the brush bar away from the floor and stopping the suction. The only thing that seems to hold this parallel when in hoovering mode seems to be the connection hose from the beater bar into the cylinder (Clear plastic with spirals). This seems to act like a spring to hold the plate paralell. We twisted this through 180 degrees and flexed it a bit and it is now holding the plate parallel. Bingo! beater bar is connecting with the carpet and we are back to great performance. Could not believe it could have such an effect

Our machine is several years old so we might have to get a new hose. However there are no splits in it so we might try a bit of duct tape repair if it goes again as it only seem to be the rigidity of the hose thats rhe problem not the connectors.

Hope this helps

Suction loss when handle is tipped back to clean carpet


can any one help,
Our Dyson Animal vacuum has plenty of suction when it is upright and the attachments are being used off the hose, but when the handle is tipped back to begin cleaning carpets the beater head is getting no suction. As the handle is being tipped back you can hear what sounds like a flapper valve in the body of the vacuum opening and then all the suction just goes away.
