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.
