Question about Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

1 Answer

Removable Tube not connecting

The tube that you can remove at the bottom to clear blockages has evidently lost the connection when you bring the Dyson down to vacuum. After looking at it, it looks as though one of my children may have ran it into something and caused the piece to disconnect. Would I need to take this to an appliance repair person?
Thanks in advance for any help!

Vacuum shoots dirt or whatever it has just vacuumed out the back of the vacuum. I checked and cleaned the filter and the vacuum bag and it still leaves dirt behind the vacuum.

Good morning,

If you've checked both the bag and the filter, the next step would to check for any clogs.

I will detail what you will need to do below, or you can always reference your Owner's Guide (check: How to Check and Clear Hose Blockages)

Step 1: Remove hose from hose retainer on the base and check suction at end of hose - if little or no suction, check dust cup. Empty if needed. If no improvement, proceed to step 2.
(Make sure you turn off the switch and unplug the unit before proceeding to step 2)

Step 2: Remove electrical cord from cord hooks. Disconnect the clear tube by unscrewing the 2 screws, then lift away from cleaner. Check for any obstructions that may be in the tube or hose. Any obstructions can be removed by using a blunt instrument to clear the tube or hose (I will sometimes you a bent hanger or a retractable pointer). Flexing the hose may help loosen the blockage. After clearing blockage, reverse above steps to reassemble unitpcfloy86_0.jpg.

I hope this helps. If so, please give this solution a thumbs up!
Have a good day

My vacum will not pick up, it is spitting the dirt out?

Check for blockage.

Most likely place is in the tube leading up from behind the beater bar. While unplugged, remove beater bar & belt & check.

If you have a strong shop vac, remove beater bar, belt, and bag, applying suction to the tube in back of the beater bar will many times dislodge the clog with little effort, sometimes though it will take some fishing around with a stiff piece of coathanger wire or similar.

Normally when you can apply suction with the shop vac to the tube in back of the beater bar & feel suction at the tube were the bag connects, you know you've got it all and you should be unclogged. Put it back together and you should be ready to roll.

This is an indication that there's a blockage in the airflow system. Check the hose, power head tube, and behind tank filter for clogs. For the hose and PN, you can detach the hose and drop a coin in one end. If it doesn't roll out, there's a blockage and it needs cleared. Try using a broom stick to push the clog out from the tank end. Or place PN end of hose to the tank in port and turn on vacuum. This should clear the hose.
For the PN, drop a coin into the hose connection. If it doesn't drop through, there's a clog in the PN tube, probably at either the elbow or behind the brush. You may be able to clear it using longnose pliers to pull needles out from the hose end, or try pushing out with a long, dull object. A wooden spoon or spatula handle will work fine.

No suction from underneath , plenty suction via hose.

There must be a blockage in the machine base. Unplug the machine lie it completely flat and turn it over, open the orange or grey trap door and clear the blockage. Also inspect the area where the hose/tube connects to the machine.

Tube to Fantom Thunder canister blocked

I cut a strip of window screen about 1 inch wide and 12 inches long and slid it up the tube from the back of the vacuum. The screen edges grabbed the gunk and as I pulled the screen strip out from the tube the gunk came with it, clearing the blockage.

Poor Suction

I recently bought a second hand Dyson DC07. Its suction was poor. I removed all the un-clipable pipe bits and to remove any blockage but it all looked clear. The Final Sponge and hepper filter did have a lot of dust in it and the rotating brush was full of hair but nothing bad.

I eventual gave in to curiosity and removed the three screws in the top or the yellow removable dust collection tube and cyclone bit to see what was in there. The mechanism to release the flap at the bottom of the collection tube does not allow you to remove the lid completely but it does open far enough to get inside. I found the whole top section of the yellow plastic bit blocked by a big plug of compacted dust and a champagne cork. If you are willing to take the risk and have a torx 15 screwdriver handy it that part may be blocked. It did get a bit messy.

If I was going to attempt the same procedure I'd remove the dust collection unit from the vacuum cleaner as I did before, but leave the clear tube attached and the emptying flap firmly closed to reduce the mess from the dust falling out the bottom while cleaning the top part.

Suction in Wand Only, (No suction down below).

check the small hose that is under the machine ( it connects to where the brush roller is ) also you can remove a u shaped tube near the bottom of the machine and also another on the right side of the machine near the bottom as well
