Almost certainly your machine has a blockage. Follow guidance in the operator manual. If you no longer have the manual, you can download a copy free from the Dyson website.

Roller that picks up dirt does not move or suck


The roller may be clogged with debris or the drive belt (if there is one) may have broken. The lack of suction could be due to a clogged intake.

How to return telescopic reach pole to original position


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

Once you've reattached the wand to the machine, you need to press the release catch again to collapse the wand back down inside the hose. The release catch is the same one you used to remove the wand initially, located just above the on/off switch.

How do I dismantle the telescopic wand on my DC20? I've tried washing it but the smell is still present. I think it needs separated


Hi Gerardette, it's Jack at Dyson.

We would strongly advise against washing or attempting to dismantle your DC20's wand. Not only can this cause damage as it's not designed to be taken apart, but the water can actually increase any odour coming from the wand as it may not be possible to dry it effectively. Attempting any maintenance not shown in the User guide could also void any guarantee remaining on your machine.

I would encourage you to contact our experts directly for some advice - you can reach us by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Sucked up some debris with Kirby, now the motor is not running right.


1) see the diagram attached.
2) clean it
3) test the belt for broken or crack
4) motor can be faulty by enough pressure in the bearing and winding overheating repair or replace.

Panasonic MC-CL673 vacuum is not getting up to speed and smells


Even though the brush is spinning, you probably need to replace the belt2_bing.gif because it is stretched. It is probably slipping on the beater bar. This is causing the smell (burning rubber). I don't believe it is your motor. :-)
