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.

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.

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

Take off the brush cover and check that the suction orifice is clear. Also check the rubber flaps at the bottom of the hose/handle holder is correctly positioned.
