Dyson - can't push the vacuum

Dyson working OK until now. The vacuum is almost impossible to push. It's like the front piece that hits the floor is somehow getting pushed down too hard and getting stuck in the carpet.

Try to see if the carpet setting is to carpet. i know this machine says that its a life time belt,but i would check this just in case. best way to tell if it's working is to lay the machine on its belly with the brushes pointing up and turn on the machine to see if the brushes are turning. (be careful not to put your face directly in front, just in case something is lodged in the brush and flies out )

How do I make the machine easier to push forward ?


Dyson will tell you to remove the gaskets from the cleaning head. I have 2 Dysons, both of which became impossible to push after new carpet was installed. I was skeptical, but it worked.

Is there a Dyson vacuum that Will work on high pile Mohawk carpet?


Patty,
I am not sure about any of the Dyson vacuums being able to handle that carpet. I work at an Oreck store on the weekends and I know that we have had several customers come in with the same question as yours and we recommend the Oreck Magnesium RS or any of the Miele vacuum cleaners. They have been tried out on Mohawk carpet and have been found to work well. Hope this helps!

My dyson is sucking to hard after I cleaned it


Hi Nanci, had this problem once myself on an older vaccum. (I now have a dyson myself and not terribly impressed with the quality). My solution was to clean the actual underside of the vacuum head. (with some sort of light grease solvent). It becomes covered in built up grease deposits off the carpet and makes it almost impossible to slide. Then I put a light coat of talcum powder on it and its been good ever since. Hope it works for you. Cheers Bob.

Dyson DC33 model. When trying to vacuum flat rug (no pile), the suction is so high the vacuum head is sucked down hard against the rug, making it impossible to push the cleaner forward. This happens with...


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.

If you can email your contact details and serial number to us at askdysonUS@dyson.com, one of our experts will be in touch as soon as possible.

Best wishes,

My Dyson - DC14 won't push on my new plush carpet, front end


Same issue: new plush carpet, 7 year old tried and true DC14, wouldn't push across regardless of beater brush on or off. Called Dyson this morning, they suggested removing the small gasket between the floor plate and the assembly holding the beater brush. It's about a 12' gasket just under the screws used to remove the floor plate. Pushing is still a bit stiff, but it is a definite improvement. Whew!

Toy stuck in hose


Generally, this is a job for patience!  First, remove the hose from the unit.  Try a broom handle to push the toy out...you will not damage the hose.  If that doesn't work, you can use a piece of stiff wire fed through the hose with hooked end.  An electrician's fishtape...a snake...is often useful.

Dyson suddenly hard to push on carpet


I know this sounds silly, but it works. Turn it over and wipe all the black residue off the bottom of it (off the plastic on the bottom that rubs on the carpet as you push and pull it). I thought my husband was out of his mind when he told me that was the solution, but it really works.
