There is a duct(#11) that has to be inserted in place of the hose duct, in front of the tank. It won't **** from the bottom without it. If you did put it back in, then the foam filter(if yours has one) is up to high on the bottom of the tank, should be a 1/4 in. gap from the top to the top of the filter.

The cleaner sucks very poorly. The motor sounds fine, it blows well and there is no obstruction.


If it blows, then it should suck equally unless there is leakage on the intake (suck) side meaning something inside disconnected or cracked, letting air in from other directions. I do not know the vacuum you speak of; upright (which has a short hose often clogged by itself) or canister which might also have a leaky seal at the bag door.

Probably clogged at the intake. remove rug plate and check intake. Broken belt is other possibility. #5 belt. This a ver basic vacuum, so not much to go wrong.

When the Dyson is upright and the removable parts to check for blockages are removed , sucking is strong. when the side one is reattached, the suction diverts to the outlet/slits on the bagless bin


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC14. From what you've described, it sounds as if the suction relief valve is activating because there may be a blockage in the cleaner head, or the internal hose.

The easiest way to check for and remove any blockages is to detach the internal hose by following the steps shown in the video below. Once you've removed any obstructions and replaced the hose, you should find this resolves the issue.

If you need any further assistance, please call us free on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON.

Kind regards,

Jack

Hi, my vac is not sucking well like it used to. I


If your machine has a removable hose, it may need cleaned. When the hose is removed you'll be able to look inside and see any bulky objects lodged there. Be careful removing the clog to prevent puncturing the hose.
The manufacturer's website will likely have links to service in your area.

Loss of suction in hose


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

It may be worth following the blockage procedure outlined in your user guide or on our website at www.dyson.com and look at our support section.

If this doesnt resolve the issue, its likely that your DC24 is still covered by the 5 year Dyson guarantee as we only started manufacturing the DC24 about 2 years ago.

If you need further help, call us on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).

The suction in the hose of my 2 year old Dyson Animal vacuum is compromised. I may have sucked up a small cat toy or something. Regular vac still is fine. The hose "sucks closed" after a few seconds near...


Hi there, it sounds as though the wand handle is blocked. To test this, remove the wand handle from the hose and test the suction at the top of the hose. If its strong here, then you will need to remove the blockage from the wand handle. If the suction is still poor, you will need to remove the hose by pressing in the catch on the hose cuff near the base of the machine and removing any blockages.

I hope that this information is useful to you.

Not sucking up the dirty water or it's sucking up water but it's not filling the recovery tank. I've tried reattaching the lid of the recovery tank and it doesn't look like it is sitting quite right.


This is one possibility. other things to look are the screen filter on the machine. intake hose behind the motor. ensure that accessory hose cover is closed when extracting water from the floor.

Suction problem


sounds like you have a leak in the suction path
look for a broken hose or seal

Suction


Opening that door and attaching the hose will let the suction go thru that hose. So if when you removed the hose, if that door isn't closed tight will cause you to have a suction problem It has to seal and have no leaks. The other thing when be a problem with the recovery tank not sealing when you put it back on. Other then that, any air leak will cause a suction problem.
