Question about Dyson DC14 All floors Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

2 Answers

I have a Dyson all-floor model (not the ball). I recently replaced my carpet to a Frieze. Since replacing the carpet, the Dyson is extremely hard to push. It almost forms a "seal" with the carpet. Seems to work fine on Berber carpet and laminate floor. My husband has checked to make sure the brushes are working, hoses are not clogged and belts are OK. I've had it for about a year. It is virutally impossible to push on the new carpet. Any ideas?

    No, there is not an adjustment. It is supposedly self-adjusting. And it has worked fine until recently.

Can you raise the level of the brush, or the front vaccuum at all?

DC25 is a powerful upright vacuum, with strong suction to clean carpets and hard floors effectively. However I'm surprised to hear you're finding your machine hard to use on this particular carpet type.

I would encourage you to contact us directly, as in order to help we would need to take some further information about the carpeting, and how you're using your DC25.

Have you correctly replaced the glider that covers the brush? You need to make sure that the clips are fully seated .

Dyson animal ball


Hi Max, I had a similar problem with mine a couple of years ago. I had just cleaned all of my filters on my Dyson, One of them being the one in the ball. Was almost impossible to roll across the floor, I messed with it for a couple of days, no solution. Called Dyson, the technician I talked to thought it might be the entire head causing problems, they sent a new head it was under warranty so no cost to me. Problem still existed. I took the ball apart and looked closely at it and it seems I had screwed it back together wrong after the filter cleaning. Long story short, check to see if the ball is put together correctly. Hope this solves your problem

My dyson beater bar is spinning but no longer touches carpet surface to pick up hair or thread .There is still plenty of suction. If I ever so lightly place my hand on the top of the beater brush it works...


Brush rolls wear out and usually need replaced every few years. The DC33 model has a clutch with belts which could also be slipping. I would replace both of them

Plush carpet setting on vaccuum?


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC41 Animal's cleaner head is designed to self-adjust to different floor types - so you don't need to bend down to adjust a dial. You can see how this feature works in the video below. In addition to this, next to the red on/off switch you'll see a silver brush control switch, which allows you to turn off the brush bar for hard floors and delicate carpeting.

Carpet manufacturers sometimes recommend vacuuming certain types of carpeting with the brush bar turned off - we'd suggest checking directly with the manufacturer of your carpets to ensure you're cleaning them correctly.

If you'd like any further advice on using your DC41 Animal, please email us at askdysonUS@dyson.com and one of our experts will be in touch as soon as possible.

Best wishes,

Jack

Pushes hard over the carpet and left lines in the new carpet. My father pulled it backwards and seemed OK. It just pushes extremely hard forward. The Dyson is about four years old and have not had any...


Check the axles of the wheels for debris accumulation. Also, make sure the height is set for the type of carpet that you have. Try pushing the machine on a bare floor--is it hard to move there also? Hope this helps!

Is the Dyson pulling carpet fibers, not dirt ?


You need to shut the brush roll off. It is ruining your rugs, the dyson has a very aggressive roller and can hurt some types of rugs and carpets.

Dyson suddenly hard to push on carpet


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.
