Question about Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

Dyson 14 won't work when switched on

I have owned my Dyson 14 hoover for approx 7/8 years and have never had any problems with it, however it is now completetly dead when switched on. At first I thought it might be a safety device because it was blocked so I have given it a thorough clean and unblocked the dust vents but unfortunately this has not worked. I thought maybe the fuse in the plug had gone but it appears that I can't check this. Any ideas on what could be wrong and also where I could take it to be repaired? I live in the Liverpool area and obviously depending upon what is wrong don't want to have to pay an arm and a leg for it. What is the lifespan of the Dyson 14 animal hoover. Can anyone help please?

It will most likely be the motor after 8 years. It will cost you £65 for a brand new motor and a full service if you can get it over to Manchester. Try here: Manchester Dyson Specialists

Motor does not switch to carpet


You need the clutch replaced. All Dyson DC-7 and DC-14 machines need to be serviced annually and have the clutch replaced if you want it to perform properly. Take it to your local vacuum repair shop to have it serviced. The good news for you is, most of the newer Dysons only last a couple of years and are disposable. Yours is repairable.

My Dyson - DC14 won't push on my new plush carpet, front end


Same issue: new plush carpet, 7 year old tried and true DC14, wouldn't push across regardless of beater brush on or off. Called Dyson this morning, they suggested removing the small gasket between the floor plate and the assembly holding the beater brush. It's about a 12' gasket just under the screws used to remove the floor plate. Pushing is still a bit stiff, but it is a definite improvement. Whew!

Hello, I've had my purple Dyson for several years. Now however the area to turn on and off won't work. I plug it in to run it then unplug it to turn it off. However I see electricity at the plug and that...


the switch must have failed and melted. take the switch cover off and inspect the switch. You will probably need to replace it. I have a video of how to do this. let me know if you need it and ill send you the link to my adrive.com account so you can download it.

Brushes not going round


The brushes on my dyson have stopped going round. I have checked it and they move freely by hand. The belt is intact. What could the problem be? The Hoover is about 10 to 12 years old.
My dyson is a dc04


I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
One of the main problems with vacuums are that the flat belts on the vacuums stretch and should be changed every 4 to 6 months or 3 or 4 times a year – you can tell by taking off the belt or belts on the vacuums and compare them to the old belts on the vacuum the new belts will fix inside of the old belts and you will be able to see the difference on how much they have stretched – if the belt is a geared belt – they stretch as well but should be changed about one a year – the cost is not that expensive and you cleaning will improve almost double – this also applies for the Dyson DC04 and the Hoover vacuum as well – some of the Hoover vacuums have two (2) belts and they both should be changed @ the same time.

My vacuum doesn't **** at all...


Hi umanski... release the hoover as though you were to use it normally... please turn the hoover upside down.. it should be lying flat to the floor now.... being careful that you dont have your fingers or anything else in the way... switch the hoover on.... is the brush roller spinning?

If not it is your brush belt has gone and needs replacing, which is fairly straightforward. Expect to pay approx £4-7 for genuine dyson belts (2).. though you can get generic copies for about £2.

Does this solve your prob, if not let me know.

regards Faggly
