There is a red reset button on the back of the machine. When it trips, the brush won't engage. Press the reset button and then try your machine again.

Check to make sure that your agitator still spins. (Agitator = brush). If your agitator still spins, it eliminates your belt and agitator as likely culprits. The last possible solution would be that your vacuum is clogged. The grinding sound might be a motor-related issue or could possibly mean your bearings are going out. Check the bearings of the agitator and the motor of the vacuum.

Accessing to the agitator and belt can be done by removing the bottom cover of your vacuum. There are 2 scews that are holding the bottom cover to the head of the unit. Remove these 2 scews and the bottom cover should snap off.

SOURCE: Electrolux 1572E (Discovery II) How to remove

Remove the handle assembly by taking the big screw out and pull up on the handle. Remove the four screws where the top half connects to the bottom half. Two on the outside back and two on the inside front where the bag goes. You'll need a long phillips #2 screwdriver. Always have the power disconected. Pull up on the bag housing while twisting it side to side.
Good luck after you get in.

It sounds like there is something wrong with the latching assembly. GO to the Sears Parts website and enter your Model number. Look at the parts assembly for the Nozzle, and the problem will be in one of items 12 through 17.

My DC24 will not switch from floor to carpet mode? Roller is not stuck or full of lint. Bagless is clean.


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC24. If the brushbar will not rotate when the brushbar switch is pressed, you may need to reset the machine.

With the cleaner facing you, you'll find a button in the red recess on the left-hand side of the cleaner head. Press this in until you hear an audible 'click' - it may help to use something like the eraser-end of a pencil to do this.

The brushbar will never rotate when you have the machine standing in the upright position, so please make sure you have it reclined into the vacuuming position before testing it after pressing the reset button.

This should resolve the issue - however, if you do need any further assistance or advice, please call us free on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US), so we can help.

Best wishes,

Does not seem to adjust to different carpet sizes


Hi Denise,

DC14 is engineered to adjust automatically to suit the type of flooring you're using it on. You can also use the brush control on the cleaner head to turn the brushbar on for vacuuming carpets, and off for vacuuming hard floors.

However, if you're concerned the cleaner doesn't seem to be working correctly, please follow the steps shown in our online support guide to identify and resolve any issues:

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

If you've tried this and still feel the cleaner isn't picking up as well as usual, please get in touch with us directly so we can help - you can call us free on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Kind regards,

Move the carpet height control switch to a higher position if the vacuum is difficult to push. If the setting is too low for the carpet being cleaned, the brushes press against the floor preventing the vacuum from moving easily.Set to a medium-high height setting then check.Slide the "Self-Propel" button to the "ON" position if the cleaner does not self-propel. -----------
The self-propel feature operates only when the cleaner switch and the self propel button are both ON. ---------- Try this settings and check.This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Did you check the powerhead for obstructions? With a bend in the tube just below where the hose connects, this is a common spot for clogs. To check, detach hose and drop a coin in the hole. If it doesn't drop through, a blockage is present. Use the handle of a wooden spoon to push clog back through to brush. It can be removed with long-nose pliers from there.
For height adjustment, check for debris that may be preventing the nozzle from raising and lowering. There may be something inside the powerhead preventing it as well.

You have a problem with the electrical switches. If you are comfortable with this, take apart and double check internal wiring to make sure nothing was frayed, or disconnected. Make sure it is unplugged. If you know how to operate a multimeter, you can use it to check continuity in each switch.
