Unwind cord and plug it in
As you view the back of the machine, the foot pedal release is on the bottom left of the vacuum. Press this with your foot to enable you to lower vacuum into cleaning position.
Turn on and vacuum.
On/off switch is on the handle.

How to maintain dirt devil floor keeper vacuum


Hi, I really use the same vaccum and I'm very fussy! What I like to do is read pictures that came with it so you get familiar with it. There are only 4 or 5 parts that you need to take apart to keep it working like the day you bought it. They do unscrew, and you can see the build up every time you vaccum. Like I said I'm fussy, you can clean it, take it apart every 4th time you use it, but watch the build up, I get a lot from my large carpet. My hole house is carpeting, and dust is always on it, where it comes from, I don't know ! So try it out, and let me know how the pictures in the book help, its very simple, watch and see. By the way its a popular machine, I love mine, nice and light ! Good Day, Frank !

Carpet cleaning


If you wet cleaned and vacuum extracted yet find carpet still quite damp,
The most common methods to dry are:
With windows open on a warm day...
Air movers
(High speed squirrel cage fans with low exhaust openings)
Designed to shoot air across the surface of the carpet...Evaporation occurs that way.
Alternatives are:
Depending on climate..running your central air or room Air conditioner with fans set around the room ,...This option is what I normally use when humidity is high in Kansas
Another option..And actually the best would be to use a Dehumidifier...They are a bit pricey new...but rentals are available

I feel like I'm pushing a semi when I vacuum carpet with my DC14. How can I remedy this?


Hi there,

Sorry to hear you're having a problem with your DC14. You may find that due to the machine's powerful suction, it does feel a little heavy to push on certain types of carpeting. It might help to check that you have your brush control adjusted correctly - in case you don't have your user guide to hand, here's an online version. Please see page 6:

You might also find it helps to run through these simple troubleshooting steps to check everything is correct with the cleaner:

A tear in the hose will only affect pick up through the hose when using it to clean furniture, stairs, and such. It will have no effect on the carpet cleaning operation. If the hose cannot be replaced for a while, black electrical tape is one solution to seal the crack.

Dont know how to hook up the carpet cleaning part of the vacuum


You have to have the Aquamate II shampoo attachment in order to clean/shampoo your carpet. Go to the Rainbow website and you can purchase it if you don't already have one - if you do have one, this site also has simple directions on how to set up the Aquamate to shampoo your carpet.

Which is the best caprpet steam cleaner mid priced?


I would recommend the Hoover brand. The Bissell's are very problematic, they have belts that break and issues with the heating elements. Hoover Steam Cleaners can be repaired and are simple to use. The price range is generally $180 - $300
