Question about Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
The vacuum gives off a stink smell which I can't seem to get rid of (after cleaning the filters) and when turned on it does not sound like it did when it was new.
Have you replaced the post motor filter? It could be time to do that.
Perhaps your cyclones are clogged as well. You can find steps to disassemble and clean your cyclone, pretty easy actually. Only 6 parts inside there and they only go together one way so you can't screw it up. Search google for dc14 cyclone disassembly and you'll probably find the video. I just did my DC17 and it took about an hour total to take apart, clean and then reassemble. You can also take the opportunity to wash all the parts and disinfect with a mild water bleach solution. That'll help with the smell.
I am betting though that your post motor and premotor filters are the blame for the smell.
I bought my DC 17 from some lady who used it to clean her cat's litter boxes. Cyclones were totally clogged after only 6 months. What do you expect from poop and wet kitty litter. She said it was junk and bought a $1500 Kirby in it's place. She's gonna have some new and interesting smells with that machine sucking up wet kitty litter.
