Question about Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

1 Answer

I had a clog in my vacuum...it didn't seem to **** right. I ran the vacuum for a bit longer and it stopped working. I took a portion apart and notice that there was a clog that was blocking the suction tube. I removed that. When I plugged the vacuum back in, only the brush portion works, the suction does not. What could be the problem and is this a pricey repair? Thanks, Renata

SOURCE: Suction

i can think of 2 things first do"s the clutch{ if it has one}work or is it in the off postion you can test this by lying the dyson on it"s side and turning it on but remember to push down on the bottom as if you was hoovering if the brush spins then its ok if it dosen" move then replace it second take the bucket off and remove the bin tune it upside down and see if it is blocked if so the best way to clean it is to sit it upside down and put a hose pipe in then just wait till the water runs clean hope this is some use to you

SOURCE: Suction

Might be the hepa filter needs cleaning? This is located in the housing on the side of the cleaner at the bottom (see your manual to find it). It is a big spongy ring which Dyson say you should remove once a month and wash in warm water. Dry off and replace in cleaner when completely dry. I've found this works and the suction is like that of a new machine!

SOURCE: brush and belt no longer rotating

My vacuum does not have suction and the belt is no longer turning the brush

SOURCE: There is no suction to the floor sweeper. The

Sounds like you have two separate problems here.  If the brush bar does not rotate, probably the belt is broken. This is easily replaced, but you need to be precise about which model you've got so you get the right belt.
Loss of suction is due either to a blockage or, quite often, to a split in the short length of clear plastic hose that leads back from the brush bar enclosure.  Repair is possible but replacement is better.
If you need more help, post here again.

Is the suction tubing in the head assembly clogged, is the belt broke? If the if the belt looks good the brush may be turned off and you may need to turn the brush switch on.

I have a Eureka Contour model 2900 type A upright vacuum, the roller works fine nothing clogged, took it apart motor blade is free of debris, no suction from tube and blasts OUT air from the front HEPA...


Even with your explanation,it seems the hose is clogged.Try taking the hose off,then blow through it or pour water through it.If this doesn't do it,make sure the suction canals are going to the proper areas.

Can anyone help with an older Euro Pro EP055, It has very little suction.


Cleaning filters on a bagless vacuum helps but filters should be replaced frequently, as often as every 3 to 6 months on some vacuums. Foam filters aren't as critical to replace because the pores are very large (which also means they don't filter out the small particles) so they don't clog as easily but paper filters have much tighter pores which become clogged and restrict the airflow. Cleaning paper style filters with water which can pack the fine dust into the pores clogging the airflow even more.
I recommend replacing filters st least onceor twice per year and cleaning them after each use for best performance and longer vacuum life. Blowing the dust out with an air compressor is my preferred method.
Changing filters frequently on a bagged vacuum isn't as critical because the bag collects most of the fine dust, dirt and gunk. The surface area of a bag is much greater than that of a filter so a bag is less likely to get clogged than a filter. Most homeowners change the bag once per month which keeps the air flowing smoothly.

Black and Decker PHV-1800: The flapper at the back of the nozzle came out. How can I reinstall it?


I have read other posts which note that while one can take all of the screws out of the nozzle assembly, it seems impossible to separate the blue portion from the white portion so that one can get at the flapper location. It is almost impossible. But not impossible. One can remove the blue portion of the nozzle. After removing all of the screws, gentle pry the blue portion from the white. While doing that, pull and wiggle the blue portion. Some gentle assists from a standard screwdriver proved helpful. With quite a bit of difficulty, and with some fear that something would break (but it didn't), it eventually came off. (There was no glue attaching it.). HOWEVER, to get the blue section back on, it proved necessary to cut off some of the blue plastic in strategic spots so that it could be returned to its original location. A Dremel tool did the job.

Lo longer steams


I just finished taking my wifes S3101 apart because of the same problem. I found the inlet and outlet hoses clear, so the problem had to be with the heater. I took the water side of the heater apart and found the outlet nipple clogged with dirt and sand. I live in VA Beach and my wife uses tap water. There was a lot of sand and dirt in the heater, so I cleaned all of that out, used a very small drill bit to clear the outlet nipple and then reassembled. It works fine now, and you will have to use distilled water if you want the unit to work for any period of time. The casing screws were a real pain to remove, so take your time.

I have the steamtek steam cleaner for 5 months and it will no longer steam!


We had the same problem. I took the unit completely apart and it seems it doesn't like our hard water. I took off the head (one screw at the base and it slips off) and I put a tooth pick into the steamer hole to clean any clogs. Then I ran a cup of CLR through it with equal parts water and it runs fine but not as good as it did new. We are going to only run distilled water through it from now on. Hope this helps!

M084600 Dynamite Bagless Upright Vacuum: loss of suction...


A few weeks ago I ran into the same problem, virtually no suction. First I replaced the bad belt (make sure you fit it right or it'll destroy the belt, luckily I bought 2!) and while the vacuum sounded more "alive" it didn't seem to pick up anything any better. The final solution was taking apart the entire intake port section down to the motor and getting the collection tube. It was filled with junk all the way up. I spent over an hour clearing out gunk and animal fur throughout the tubing. Putting it back together was a cinche because the entire vacuum uses one screw type universally. The whole process was pretty intuitive and its clear it's meant to be taken apart for just this purpose.

Reset button or Fuse on my Infinity?


Ok, I took it apart, cleared the clog out, and put it back together. It wouldn't switch to "carpet". Got no answer on my question. Took it apart again, only I went further. Took apart the bottom - brush out, all inside bottom parts out, cleaned all that part of vac. No clogs down there. Ran the carpet/bare floor switch back and forth several times while I had it apart. Put it all back together and it worked fine. Still didn't find a fuse or reset button...
