I can't switch from flat floor mode to carpet mode. I get no suction to speak of. Also, I get this horrible squealing noise when I push the red button


Your machine probably needs serviced and cleaned. What that means is taking it apart to clean hair, dust, and. debris from all the areas it builds up during normal use. If to much debris builds up it will start to cause to cause problems that can damage your vacuum. Start by trying to figure out where the horrible squealing noise is coming from as it probably means something is binding up, most likely in the brush bar area.

I can't get my Dyson to switch from flat floor to carpet mode. I push the tiny red button on the brush part, but I get this horrible noise. I already followed the video and cleaned the brushes


The horrible noise may be something wrong in the brush bar assembly preventing the brush bar from spinning freely. Remove and inspect the brush bar and belt or belts if applicable to your model.

It is probably the brush roll motor making the noise. Remove the brush roll & belt and turn both motors on. If you do not hear the noise when both motors are running the noise is likely coming from the brush roll

DC07 grinding noise


I had the same problem with mine, I took it to a repair shop. The problem is where the belt passes through from the brush and goes inside the machine. Move the belt over a bit and you will see that a plastic guide has been bent over and is pressing onto the brush, which causes the noise. Just bend it straight again and it stops.

Noise


Hi Linda,
Sounds like clutch problems, try to move the lever for carpet/floor back and forth a few times maybe it will free up. If it still makes the grinding noise, the clutch assembly will have to be replaced. Let me know, i can even walk you through the repair if needed.

I ran over a shoe lace and now it is making a loud rattling noise


The All Floors model has a protective belt clutch system and the rattling sound means the clutch has slipped. This would have to be repaired officially by a Dyson repairer.

HOOVER FLOOR MATE WILL NOT SUCTION WATER


There are no belts. If it makes the noise with the brush assembly removed the motor drive assembly is bad. It ia a complete assembly that can easily be replace by a repairman or ypouself if you are cleaver with tools. Good luck.
