Question about Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
I have had my Dyson DC14 for two years and have never had any issues. Suddenly it is very hard to push on the carpet compared to tile flooring. I actually have to strain to push it. I have the button next to the power button pushed on as it should be for carpet. My belt also appears to be fine. Any ideas?
I know this sounds silly, but it works. Turn it over and wipe all the black residue off the bottom of it (off the plastic on the bottom that rubs on the carpet as you push and pull it). I thought my husband was out of his mind when he told me that was the solution, but it really works.

My dyson dc17 animal had become nearly impossible to push on carpets. I did some research and somewhere on this forum i saw that someone mentioned replacing the roller.
sure enough i found that my roller was warn down to nubs (vacuum is probably 8 years old, and gets used nearly every day)
I replaced the roller and WOW! it feels like its self propelled now. HUGE DIFFERENCE.
thanks for the help!!
