Re: Dyson DC14 all floors.

Sept 30,08 bought dc14 all flloor. After 3 to 4 uses it started making lots of noise when on carpet setting. I examined the roller brush and it was cracked at one end. I returned it Oct 13 ,08 and got another dc 14 all floor. Now this one after 2 uses has the same problem only a larger crack in the brush and a small piece of the brush broke off. Very dissapointed.

Re: Dyson DC14 all floors.


Sorry I need a bit more information.

Is the noise mechanical EG Clicking, rapid loud banging sound, screeching, hissing ?
Is the noise electrical noise from motor EG popping, buzzing, does motor pick up speed then slow down?
Is there a smell EG electrical burning, rubber burning. ?

If you lay machine on its side pull handle back & switch on does brush spin ?

If machine in parked full upright position is noise still present ?

Please answer all these questions & add more if you want to it will help me to help you.

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.

No suction

Sucked up a sock?? No seriously.. it may be as simple as that or that an on board filter is clogged. Check your manual for all filters and Hepa/screens and others. Also, is the unit making any odd noises since the non -suction scenario? Whining or screeching sounds, where is the motor impeller/vac bearing or similar is damaged or a hose is kinked within hte unit itself.. <not normally unless the unit has been taken apart and placed back together and crushed the main return vac hose. .

Dyson making loud noise

If your brushroller isn't spinning it will make the loud sound. Try removing the brushroll and reinstalling it. If this doesn't work, you may need a new brushroller.You can find one here...

Dyson vacum cleaner lost suction got the DC14 and it doesn't seem to have much suction in the floor head, the hose still has good suction. I have checked all the paths for blockage and there is none.

Forgive me if I'm thinking of the wrong model, but I think the DC14 has a short length of clear plastic tubing between the floor head and the fixed vacuum pipe-work. This tube can split and let air in which, of course, reduces suction at the head. You need to inspect it very carefully, as the split is often where it's really difficult to see!
If this is the problem, a repair with tape is possible but rarely completely satisfactory. A new bit of tube is the best solution.
