Question about Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

1 Answer

Suction not working in upright

The upright suction suddenly stopped working (cyclone not spinning) and gives off a horrible loud squeal in the upright position.  In the brush position it works fine.
Can't find anything in the manual or on the net to solve problem.
Any ideas??

Hi.

You will have A blockage in either the wand or hose, completely remove them from machine the hose unclips at the bottom back of machine,
Now switch machine on with this removed if machine sounds ok then remove the blockage from hose or wand.

If machine still poor suction & noisey with hose & wand removed check the (U) shaped inspection port for blockages.

Let me know how you get on.

If I do not have any suction, is it the motor . I changed the clutch. My brushes are rolling and checked for blocks . What is my next step?


Hi there are several reasons, motor failing could be one but if it is spinning it will be sucking, look in the short flexible hose for a block, pull out the inspection bend and the double clip unit at the side and check these. Are all you seals in place and not leaking? With the vacuum cleaner in the upright position turn it on is the air being sucked into the hand wand? if it sucks here then blockage is before the diverter which is in the lower part. If the suction is low in the upright positon, did you remove the bin and cyclone and seperate the two? there is likely a build up of dust etc. in the cyclone. There are also pleanty of Youtube video's. If it is all clean and clear borrow a similar unit and swap over the bin/cylone and the various interchangeable parts, finally have you replaced the filters?

Why does the suction stop after 10 minutes of use on my Dyson DC43?


Your vacuum may be overheating and shutting off the suction motor. Clean the cyclone assembly and the filters to see if they could be restricting the airflow.

Hi my dc07 has lost suction on the roller, but not on the hose there are no blockages cyclone still strong any ideas thanks


Are the brushes in the base of the vacuum spinning? You wont get much suction from the base of the hoover if the brush bar isn't working?

Lie the vacuum on it's side and turn it on. If the brushes aren't spinning then your belt has either come off or broken. I suspect this is the cause of your problem.

Vacuum does not have good suction. We've cleaned


sometimes debris can still be hidden in odd places. if you have access to compressied air you might carefully us it to blow out all the passageways that the air travels from the brush to the dirt holding area. make sure you dont have a filter that you missed when you replaced them. use low pressure air to blow out the system as high pressre air might damage a part of the system.is the motor running at the normal speed? if not you might try to find out why and fix that as well. as always never worksk on a vacuum that is plegged in. good luck.

The suction only works when upright, when in the recline position there is no suction and it starts to smoke


you probably have suction just no aggitation. those units use a clutch assy with two belts unfortunately when the belts fail you have to replace the whole assy just like everything else on the dysons. check your brushroll for rotation and for hair wrapped around it. if the brushroll doesnt spin easily it will cause your belts to fail
