In the 'Auto' mode, when the power tool is activated, power is automatically supplied to the vacuum system. Therefore when the power tool is turned off, the power to the vacuum system will be maintained for approximately a further six seconds, in order to clear all dust from the work surface.

MY vaccuum wont suction or turn at the brush bar. The wand works and I already checked/cleaned all the areas the instrucion manual said to.


The DC07 has a "brush control system" operated by a knob on the right side of the base. This knob has two positions: "bare floors" (or "off") and "carpet" (or "auto"). The roller will turn only when the knob is on "carpet", and even then only when the handle is tilted back (with the base still flat on the floor). The problem is that this system uses two belts, only one of which is easy to see. If you're sure that the control knob is in the correct position, and still the roller doesn't turn when the handle is lowered, then most likely the belt that you can't see is broken (that belt goes from the motor to the clutch mechanism behind the control knob). It's also possible that the clutch itself has failed.
Belt/clutch replacement on this model is not for the faint-hearted! To see what's involved, you can go to www.dysonmedic.com then scroll to the bottom of the page and click on "DC07 clutch replacement". At least you will see how to remove the clutch cover so you can check on the other belt and confirm if this is the problem or not. Then you have to decide who is to do the job!
As for loss of suction, check carefully for splits in the short length of clear plastic hose on the underside of the machine (pull it off from the motor end and then unscrew it from the brush-roll end).
I value your feedback, so please remember to rate this response. Good luck!

Brushes not moving


The DC14 has a "brush control system" operated by a knob on the right side of the base. This knob has two positions: "bare floors" (or "off") and "carpet" (or "auto"). The motor turns the roller only when the knob is on "carpet", and even then only when the handle is tilted back (with the base still flat on the floor). Make sure the knob is in the correct position.
Next possibility is that a belt has broken. The problem is that this system uses two belts, only one of which is easy to see. If you're sure that the control knob is in the correct position, and still the roller doesn't turn (although you can turn it freely by hand), then most likely a belt is broken. It's also possible that the clutch itself has failed.
Belt replacement on this model is not for the faint-hearted! To see what's involved, you can go to www.dysonmedic.com then scroll to the bottom of the page and click on "DC07 clutch replacement" (DC14 is similar). Then you have to decide who is to do the job!

I have a 4 year old pink dyson that I've loved until recently. It's always been easy to unclog when it wasen't picking up-now it seems maybe a seal problem has occured. The suction is making a funny noise...


Thanks for your response.First: (This is most likely as you say the suction is making a funny noise.) The DC07 has a short length of clear plastic hose on the underside of the machine. Check this very carefully for splits (pull it off from the motor end and then unscrew it from the brush-roll end). Even the smallest split can cause serious loss of suction. If you find a split it's best, and inexpensive, to replace the hose rather than try to repair it. Next: (Less likely.) Most, but not all, models of the DC07 have a "brush control system" operated by a knob on the right side of the base. This knob has two positions: "bare floors" (or "off") and "carpet" (or "auto"). The roller will turn only when the knob is on "carpet", and even then only when the handle is tilted back (with the base still flat on the floor). Dust pick-up will bee poor if the brush-roll has stopped working. The problem is that this system uses two belts, only one of which is easy to see. If you're sure that the control knob is in the correct position, but the roller doesn't turn when the machine is on and the handle is lowered, then most likely one of the belts is broken (one belt goes from the motor to the clutch mechanism behind the control knob, the other from the clutch to the brush-roll). It's also possible that the clutch itself has failed.
Belt/clutch replacement on this model is not for the faint-hearted! To see what's involved, you can go to www.dysonmedic.com then scroll to the bottom of the page and click on "DC07 clutch replacement". At least you will see how to remove the clutch cover so you can check on the other belt and confirm if this is the problem or not. Then you have to decide who is to do the job!
But, with any luck, you will find that it's that little plastic hose that's the problem anyway... and don't listen to the Oreck salesman!

I have a dyson upright and he beater brush is not turning


There are four possible reasons for the problem. We will take them from the easiest to fix to the hardest.

1. The manual clutch is not engaged. On the bottom right side of the vaccum is the manual clutch knob. Be sure it is rotated all the way forward. The clutch should now engage when the handle is lowered from the upright position to the vacuumig position.

2. The brush bar is entangled with debris keeping it from turning. Turn the vacuum over, remove the brush bar cover by using a coin to turn the screw like pinions a quarter turn counter-clockwise. Remove any hair, carpet fibers or other items wrapped around the brush bar. Disengage the manual clutch by turning it toward the back of the vacuum. Try turning the brush bar by hand to see that it moves freely.

3. The brush bar is broken. While you have the brush bar cover removed, inspect the brush bar for any cracks or other signs of damage. The frequency of a damaged or defective brush bar is higher than most people may think. If damaged, the brush bar will need to be replaced.

4. The clutch assebly is not functioning properly. In that case, it would be best to have a service tech handle the matter. If you want to inspect the clutch or even consider replacing it yourself, this link may be of interest: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7_CtaFcc5HU

Hope I've been of some help.

Brush Roll won't switch positions


The adjustment knob on the hood of the machine is a plastic "arm" that prevents the belt tensioner from tightening up the v-belt so that the roller will stop or start. If the knob is adjusted while the handle is back, it can break the plastic arm off and then the function will not work. This knob should only be adjusted with the handle in the upright position. Usually, if the arm is broken, the roller will still turn when the handle is lowered and will not turn off when the knob is selected to the bare floor. If the brush roll will not switch on , it is usually a problem with the belt(s). You should replace the belts yearly. They can look fine, but be worn out.

Connecting a BISSELL AUTO MIX PISTON TO A AUTO MIX KNOB


Take of the housing ,turn it over and you will see the under side of the auto mix dial , Then turn the auto mix dial to rinse only;
On the top of the piston you will see a small slot , this fits into
the out side spiral on the auto mix knob with the dial set to rinse only the top part of the spiail sould point to the courner
Tilt the piston slightly,then hook it on the point of the auto mix knob , when you turn the auto mix dial to heavy traffic the piston should slide down the outer spiral of the auto mix-dial ,
Put the housing back on with the auto mix dial set to heavy traffic, but make sure no tubes are trapped or this will stop the flow of water,
i hope you can under stand what i have wrote ,Goodluck

Bissell Pro-Heat Pro-Tech Carpet Cleaner


Put the piston on the bottom part of the knob, You want the the knob to be at the water only setting when it goes into the slot. After the top is pushed all of the way on, turn the auto-mix knob to see if it is turning easily. If it doesn't stop, and wants to keep turning, then you probably need a new knob.
