My Dyson DC14 Blitz It will not switch on. I have checked the fuse in the plug and it is fine. I have also vreified that the switch is working by using a multimeter. I'm guesing that there is an internal fuse blown (or worse!). Any suggestions?

I ended up dismantling the Dyson in an effort to determine the problem. In doing so I discovered that if I rotated the motor backwards by a quarter of a turn, it came back to life. Rather odd really. The Dyson is working fine now, and event benefited from a bit of a clean up during the dismantling!

My dyson dc14 when you push the start button doesnt turn on? could the button need replaced


The most likely fault is a break in the cable near the point where it enters the machine, if cable is ok it could be the switch, or it could be a fuse in the plug if you have fused plugs. Get someone to check the cable, often the broken part can be removed, and you end up with a slightly shorter cable by about 20cm

Dyson dc14 stopped working.....it does not switch on. I have checked the switch it seems fine.....changed the fuse even that did not resolve the problem....taken the filter out cleaned it and put it b


Did you drop the handle on the floor? or against the wall. If the turn on switch is in the handle, it can dislocate the power source. best to take it in to a repair shop, but sometimes it's an easy fix if you are mechanically inclined.

My dyson dc14 wont turn on at all


Hi I would suggest you first check the Fuse in the plug. This is quite common.

If after chnaging the fuse the machine still doesnt work then please come back to us. Let us know that you have checked the fuse andthe machine still wont switch on.

Im confident it will only be the fuse. Unless you have had strange noises or funny smells coming from the machine.

My dyson dc14 suddenly stopped working while vacuuming. What should I do?


Check mains fuse, if OK, suspect mains cable broken where it enters the machine. Wriggle the cable with the machine switched on.
If it's done a lot of work, the motor brushes could be worn out.

Dyson DC14 won't **** from hose but works fine otherwise


There is probably a clog in the U-bend on the back of the unit at the bottom. Removed with a twist of a plastic screw by a coin or screw driver. If not in the U-bend check in the hose/wand.
