Remove bottom of machine by turning the 3 plastic slot head screws to unlock.

Once off check brush roller for any obstructions Eg tassles from carpet, pen top, pencil ,carboard etc.
You should be able to rotate it by hand without exerting lots of force.

If you find no obstuction & still have problem chances are clutch is damaged & will need replacing.
Its not to diofficult job but its A lot to explain.

Try this site
It has manuals on clutch replacing that can be sent via email to you.

I have just renewed my filters on a dco7 allergy.One week later i have a loud whistling noise ,no loss of suction any ideas?

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

A whistling noise could be caused by something very simple, such as a part or seal that's slightly out of position. We're happy to help you check for this and resolve it - we may be able to sort things out right over the phone.

When you have your DC07 Allergy to hand, please call the Dyson Customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

We'll look forward to speaking with you.

Dyson DC14 all floors.

sept 30,08 bought dc14 all flloor. After 3 to 4 uses it started making lots of noise when on carpet setting. I examined the roller brush and it was cracked at one end. I returned it Oct 13 ,08 and got another dc 14 all floor. Now this one after 2 uses has the same problem only a larger crack in the brush and a small piece of the brush broke off. Very dissapointed.
