SOURCE: dyson dc14 has no suction and burning smell

The guide suggest that you change the belt by putting it around the brush, through the plate, and then try to push it around the spindle, which has a space between it and the casing. I spent an hour trying to do this and couldn't get enough purchase to get the belt around the spindle. Instead I put it around the spindle first, and then through the plate, and then through a screwdriver to hold it in place. I then got the brush and put the band over the brush, rotating it until it went into the groove. I then reassembled. It worked, and I now realise how powerful that brush is. Hope it works.

I guess you don't need me to tell you you've got a major electrical problem!  Question is, what do you need by way of help?  At the very least you will need new carbon brushes for the motor, and it's quite likely that you may need a complete new motor.  Trouble is that Dysons generally are not easy for the amateur to get in to and Dyson do not make technical manuals available.  It's a while since I had to work on a DC14 and I can't remember how to get at the motor.  The best I can do is spell out your options: 1. Try to do it yourself and risk breaking something, 2. wait for a reply on this site from someone else (although to judge from the number of unanswered Dyson problems here, you may wait for ever),  3. take it to a specialist repairer or call Dyson direct for advice (but they won't give you any guidance for doing the work yourself).  
Good luck.  If you need to ask specific questions, post again here and I'll help if I can.

SOURCE: dyson dc14 died, no power after burning smrll

It sounds like the motor has overheated and has now been irrepairable damaged.
The motor has a built in over-current trip to protect itself (and you if it seriously overheated and caught fire). This normally automatically resets itself, however if the motor has just about had it, the moment it is switched on, it just trips again.

The primary cause of motors overheating is that the filters are not cleaned or replaced frequently enough. Dont be fooled by Dyson's "lifetime filters". They need to be regularly cleaned and replaced when necessary.

Replacement motors are avaible on eBay for about £25, however repalcing one requires good DIY skills and tools.

Have a look at www.dysonmedic.com and see if you feel you can tackle it yourself. If not, take it to a repair shop or call the Dyson helpline.

Oreck xl won't start


This could be for various reasons. Check the power cord and try a different outlet first. See if the power cord is loose or damaged. Next check the brushroll and belt that those are in working order. If you smelt burning or electrical fire or your vacuum made an odd noise before stopping it may be the motor going bad. If your power cord is good and the brushroll and belt good, it is probably your motor going bad.

My Dyson dc14 blows from the floor sweeper and the black stopper under the start button /on spring/ gets suced insight when I start it. The noise has changed. Any ideas? Thanks.


Hi there,

Sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC14. If the noise has changed, the relief valve is activating, and debris is coming from the cleaner head, sounds as if have a blockage. The filter may also need a wash.

The easiest way to check for and clear blockages is to run through the steps shown in our online support guide:

http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=626&product=DC14-ANIMAL_US

The correct way to wash the filter is shown in the video linked below. Under normal use, the filter should be washed at least once every 3-6 months:

http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=1461&product=DC14-ANIMAL_US

Hopefully, by removing any blockages and washing the filter, you should be able to resolve your issue. However, if you've followed these steps and are still concerned, it's probably best if you get in touch with us directly. You can call us free on 08002980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US). One of our experts will be happy to run through some troubleshooting over the phone with you and recommend the best course of action.

When my dyson dc14 hoover is on it has a strange burning smell, and a noise like air popping, there seems to be suction from beater and it spins. and definitley suction from extension. Filters are clear...


It could be the belt. However, the popping sound does have me puzzled. The popping could be coming from a partially broken belt slapping against plastic.

Dyson vacum cleaner lost suction got the DC14 and it doesn't seem to have much suction in the floor head, the hose still has good suction. I have checked all the paths for blockage and there is none.


Forgive me if I'm thinking of the wrong model, but I think the DC14 has a short length of clear plastic tubing between the floor head and the fixed vacuum pipe-work. This tube can split and let air in which, of course, reduces suction at the head. You need to inspect it very carefully, as the split is often where it's really difficult to see!
If this is the problem, a repair with tape is possible but rarely completely satisfactory. A new bit of tube is the best solution.

Dyson DC14 all floors.


sept 30,08 bought dc14 all flloor. After 3 to 4 uses it started making lots of noise when on carpet setting. I examined the roller brush and it was cracked at one end. I returned it Oct 13 ,08 and got another dc 14 all floor. Now this one after 2 uses has the same problem only a larger crack in the brush and a small piece of the brush broke off. Very dissapointed.
