SOURCE: beater bar on Dyson upright won't turn when handle is lowered

I have finally fixed my sister's dyson dc 15 beater bar problem. It was just 2 tiny broken wires connect to circuit board lead to the beater bar. The wires broke where they go through the black rubber gommet. You need a torx screwdriver tx 15 to remove 2 plastic covers to access the wires. When looking at the front of the vacuum, the gray covers located on the right side of the vacuum. 1 big cover with a black rubber gasket and other small gray cover is on the rotating ball area.
This my new year resolution is to warn people not to buy Dyson vacuum cleaner ( Junk) design to break down! Shame on you Dyson!!!! Save your money find good old vacuum cleaner with metal parts.

OLD IS IN NEW IS JUNK!

Happy New Year!

SOURCE: DC 14 low reach without good suction

Not sure, but there are one or two more possibilities. There are so many Dyson models that It's easy to confuse them, but I think the DC14 has a short length of clear plastic tube leading from the beater bar area to the rest of the vacuum system. Sometimes this tube develops a crack, with the result that air flow around the beater bar is reduced. I suggest you check that. If you also have reduced suction from the hose, you will need to remove and inspect for blockages in the U tube at the base of the wand fitment, and also in the inspection port which is to the right of that (two yellow buttons to be squeezed to remove it, I think). If none of this helps, please post more details, if you can, and I'll try again. Good luck!

    Hi there,

    I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC17. Although I note you've already checked for blockages, it's a good idea to follow the steps shown in our online Support guide to make sure everything is correct with the machine:

    http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=954&product=DC17-ANIMAL


    Please also check that the filter has been washed as shown in the video below - in normal use, this should be done at least once every 3-6 months. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 24 hours for the filter to dry completely before replacing it.

    This should resolve the issue, but if you're still concerned, please get in touch with us directly so we can provide further assistance. You can call us free on 1866MYDYSON, or email askdysonUS@dyson.com.

    This vacuum keeps getting clogged in the hose and has terrible suction. The women who helps clean my house won't even use it as it performs terribly. Any suggestions


    check vac air filter(not the dirt collection bag) also something could be lodged in hose mechanism so there is always a partial restriction. make sure the beater bar is not set too low. check the dirt that accumulates in bag to see that there is not an excess number of carpet fibers in there. beater bar should be clean and spin freely.

    No suction for rugs but the hose works fine. Removed the canister and suction is at that point


    Hello,

    Remove the base plate and beater bar. Clean the suction cavity behind the beater bar. That's where they almost always plug up.

    No suction using extension hose for Bissell Bagless Upright vacuum. i checked for clogs and found nothing. shannon


    Check the sole plate where the beater bar is. You may have to remove the roller brush flap to get into the roller brush and then check the main dust channel beside it. Usually if there's no suction on the hose it means that:
    1) The hose is blocked 2) The filters are needing cleaned / washed and dried for 24 hours or see my tips! 3) There is dust clogging after the beater bar/roller brush.

    Hoover U6476-910 - Very little suction from the bottom


    If you haven't already, remove the beater bar. This is accomplished by unplugging the vacuum and turning it beater bar up. Remove the clips or screws that hold the plate on the beater bar and set aside. The beater bar sits in sockets, so carefully remove the bar, noting the correct position of the sockets. This will make reassembly much easier. Slip the beater bar out of the drive belt. Now, inspect the suction cavity that the beater bar would discharge into. Usually, things clog up here as there is a flex hose that catches things, creating a pluggage.
    Hope this helps, --W/D--

    DC07 works with the hose - but not when upright


    Check the actual brush bar is moving. If it is then there's definately a clog and it could well be behind the beater bar. If you can remove the sole plate (which is the grid in front of the beater bar) then undo it and check dirt behind the beater bar, belt and main dust channel. Also check the main inspection air ways and if the beater bar is clogged with hair, clean it off.
