Dyson DC14 hose won't extend and floor unit lost suction


Sounds like the exhaust side is clogged. Remember a vacuum pulls air into the cavity, but for it to work properly it also has to be able to exhaust the same amount of air it takes in. If the exhaust is blocked it will continue to suck air inside and collapse on itself, which is why your hoses are getting shorter and harder to move. Check the exhaust system for any blockages, perhaps the hole you taped was the exhaust.

My kenmore progressive canister vacuum turns on only if the hose is attached to the floorwand. It seems that the canister motor is not working because I can't hear anything coming from the caniste


If the floor wand is powered, there may be an electrical connection that is broken when the wand is disconnected. This is part of the design, not necessarily a fault

I cleaned out my brush in the bottom front, cleaned out the small tubing going into the canister, and the canister itself. I also changed the filter.I snapped everything back into place, but Since then, it...


  • You want to put the cyclone in the plastic bin first and then set the two on the base of the vacuum. Them two steps are important. (see diagram)
  • Line up the front and rear guides and push down to click into place.
  • Make sure you did not loose that little black gasket on the end of the yellow cyclone. If it's not there check the trash or the hole in the vacuum where it sets.

Very little suction when vacumming


Hi There,

I think I know exactly what the problem is with your Dyson. I'd be happy to try and walk you through it, but just want to make sure that you still need help, or if you've already fixed the problem.

Two questions: seems i sucked something up that i


can u see where the "clog" is?
it may be in the hose or at the entry into the canister.
remove the canister and check... the filter is underneath the canister... mine is yellow.. it just snaps out and back in once it's cleaned. also check there are not strings or long threads, etc. and the top (inside) the canister- and the holes are not clogged.

Good Luck:)

Accessory hose not sucking


Try taking the hose off, and making sure it is not stopped up, either in the hose, or where it attaches. Straighten a wire coat hanger and run down the hose to check for obstructions.

Hope this helps!!!

I have a dyson that is picking up just fine when on vacuum mode, however when I try to use the suction tube there is no suction at all. It is not blocked and the canister is empty. Help!


Hi, I have an upright DC03, brilliant machine. Mine wouldn't **** and had the following symptoms;
- it sucked ok from the top hole where the canister joins the unit - with the canister the dust didn't spin aroun inside the canister like it normally does and there was no **** at the hose end or brush end. - with the top of the canister attached (the cyclone) but not the bottom it sucked through the cyclone - the small valve on top of the cyclone unit was sucking heaps
this indicated to me the machine was sucking through the cyclone unit but when the canister was put on it was blocked - hence the tremendous sucking through the valve on the top of the cyclone. As far as I could see the cyclone wasn't blocked so I poked some wire down the tube inside the machine that runs from the bottom of the unit (where the hose sits) up to the bottom hole where the canister joins. 
The DC03 has 2 holes where the canister attaches, it seems like it sucks air through the top hole, through the cyclone and through the lower hole sucks the dust up this inner tube into the canister. Check that tube, shine a torch from the top hole and you should be able to see the light at the bottom. Make sure you clear it completely. 
Mine was very very blocked. I kept poking and removing dust until I could see light at through the tube. Works fine now.
Hopefully this helps someone as it took me awhile to work it out. 
Good luck

Dyson blowing top of cyclone air release valve.


It sounds like the same problem I was having. I had loss of suction through he hose then all of the air was coming out through the vent/valve on top of canister. If you are looking at your dyson from the back, look at the bottom. You will see a purple plastic tab on the bottom left. That allows you to remove the plastic u-shaped hose that goes from the hose to the bottom of the dyson. I just removed that and found it was completley blocked. I removed it and the dyson has no loss of suction orair through top valve/vent. I hope this helps. I never post but i'm just excited that I got my dyson working perfectly again.
