SOURCE: dyson DC 14 lost suction to beater bar/ suction to hose/stick

My Dyson DC14 had no suction...see if this works...turn the Dyson upside down...there is a length of hose that connects the bottom of the vacuum to the top, careful remove one end of the hose and check for debris...mine was clogged. Removed the clog and voila...it works. Thanks for the above info on checking the hose for cracks.

Two possible solutions come to mind. First off, there is a clog in your hose. If you have another vacuum, try using the hose on that one to **** it out.
If that doesn't work, you may need to have the clutch replaced. Check your warranty. The clog wont be covered, but the clutch will be,

SOURCE: Have Dyson DC14. Lots of suckion through hose but

Had the same problem on brand new cleaner DC14 and it was the belt that drives teh front roller not being connetted to the small silver motor spindle. I just opened the front roller cover (3 easy unlocking screws on base) and saw black rubber belt was not connetted and was loose. I just flipped the belt over the silver motor spindle and away we go (after cover was put back on). It now works as it should!

SOURCE: I have the Dyson DC14 and its like it's not

Hi its Darran at Dyson.

It sounds as though the internal hose underneath the machine has twisted slightly. With the machine switched off, lay it on its side and look at the base. You should be able to see a small corrigated hose. Simply twist this a quarter turn clockwise which hopefully will allow the head to adjust again.

If you are still having problems, please contact our Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Dc 14 does not suck very well when on carpets massive suction through wand


Hi Diane, it's Jack at Dyson.

If your DC14 isn't picking up well on carpets despite having strong suction through the wand, there are some simple troubleshooting checks you can run through. I understand you've checked for blockages and washed the filter, but there may be something you've overlooked. These checks will help you determine if there's a blockage or another issue that may be causing this: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc14/dc14-all-floors/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-not-sucking-picking-up-as-well-as-usual/how-to-wash-filters/no/loss-of-performance

If you'd like further advice after giving each of these diagnostic checks a try, please give our experts a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Hi there,

Sorry to hear you're having difficulties using your DC14 on this particular carpet. It might help to check you have your brush control adjusted to the correct setting - you can find out how to do this in the user guide supplied with your cleaner. In case you don't have this to hand, here's an online copy:

http://media.dyson.com/downloads/us/floorcare/manuals/dc14_opmanual_usa2007.pdf

You may also want to contact your carpet manufacturer to check it's suitable for cleaning with a vacuum cleaner equipped with a revolving brush. Manufacturers sometimes recommend cleaning certain types of carpeting using suction only.

My dyson vacuum appears to still have suction but it doesnt


That means that the belt is stretched or worn. This causes the roller brush to not be able to turn the way its supposed to against the resistance of the carpet and therefore won't pick up well. You need to replace the belt. Here are the belts you need:
