You might want to check three things. First, is the washable filter under the dust bin clean. Take off the dust bin, open the filter cover and check the washable filter. Wash it while you are at it, let it dry 12 hours. Next, make sure the gasket that seals the flip open door to the center of the dust bin is on correctly. Owner's manual shows the correct way and you want to be sure the ribs on the gasket are seated in the grooves on the center tube in the dust bin (this will also cause your washable filter to clog really badly if not on correctly. Third, your cyclone could be plugged with hair or something. This will happen if you pick up something wet, or damp or clean up lots of pet hair. Here's a good site on how to take your cyclone apart and clean it. http://www.exonotes.com/content/node/4

Why does the nap come off the carpet?


It's not unusual for carpet to shed fibers and that Vacuum has very powerful suction. It should quit pulling loose fibers after all the weaker ones have been removed.

My Dyson DC14 ANimal vacum cleaner has lost a lot of its suction, i have cleaned the regular filter but this does not seem to have improved it much. JAmie


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

A loss of suction is most likely caused by a blockage or a dirty filter. If you have cleaned the filter, it would be worth checking the machine through for a blockage by following the user guide or the diagnostics in the Support section on our website at www.dyson.com.

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

Kind regards
Darran

Loss of suction


very simple fix. took me a good hour to figure this out but... first take off your brushhead. via popping the clip so all u have is the circle showing then turn on the vacum using the hose. put the hose over the hole where the brush head goes.. and give it a shake etc to losen up whatever it is u got stuck up in that hose. mine was xmas tree/cat hair mix. which is the death of any vacum lol.. but that noise on the top of the can is cause by suction loss. just use the hose to **** out whatever u got jammed in there and use your finger if u need too. and then no more canister noise.

Dyson not owrking in upright position


I've had this problem. On the lower left side of the vacuum you need to make sure that is completely attached. Pull the part with the arrow button up and push the compartment down. This will allow suction to continue
