The clutch system has a worn out bearing. You will have to have a Dyson dealer or warranty center replace it for you.

Seems my dyson dc14 redbin emptying button is broken is that part replaceable?


That part is not sold separately. You have to buy the whole dust bin assembly. You should go to your local vac shop and see if they have a good used one. At my store we have piles of old Dysons that we sell parts off of.

HOW TO LOCK THE CANSTER LID ON DYSON DC 14


Hi Keith, it's Jack at Dyson.

If you're unable to close the bin base after emptying your vacuum, it sounds like something is incorrectly fitted or missing. Please ensure the clear bin is firmly attached to the cyclone pack, and that there is no visible damage to the clear bin, the bin base or the cyclone pack.

If you're still not sure, it's probably best if you contact our experts directly so they can take you through some quick troubleshooting checks. We may be able to resolve this issue right over the phone. You can reach us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Our vacuum smells of dog when in use. We have clean out all the filters but it still smells horrible. Any suggestions?


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC14 Animal. You may want to take a look at the page linked below to make sure you've washed the filter correctly - this should be done at least once every 3-6 months. Use cold water without detergent, and allow up to 12 hours for the filter to dry completely before replacing it.

http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=1324&product=DC14-ANIMAL_US


You can also wash the clear bin when separated from the cyclone pack - however, the cyclone pack must never be washed or submerged in water. Make sure the clear bin is totally dry before reassembling the cyclone assembly.

If you need any further help or advice about using or maintaining your Dyson cleaner, please call us free on 08002980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US) - one of our experts will be happy to provide the assistance you need.

Kind regards,

Jack

Have a DC25, I can not return the handle to the upright position. Nothing appears to be broken


Occasionally, customers have problems locking their Dyson vacuum in the upright position. This is a minor problem common with the Dyson DC07 and DC14 series and can easily be fixed by the customer. This page will show how to fix this problem. Although we show a Dyson DC14 Animal on this page, these instructions will work on any Dyson vacuum in the DC07 and DC14 series.

During shipping, moving parts on a Dyson vacuum can shift in position. One of these parts is a swinging arm in the base of the unit. This arm holds a removable elbow pipe in the vacuum's air passage. This arm can move out of the way so that you can clear out a blockage in the air passage. When this arm is out of position, the vacuum will not lock in the upright position. Fig. 1 Shows the base of a Dyson DC14 Animal locked upright. The red arrow points to the swinging arm. Fig. 2 shows the vacuum with the swing arm out of position. Since the swing arm is lower than it should be, it doesn't line up with the tab on the main body indicated by the red arrow.

Lean the handle of your Dyson all the way back and locate the black button on the right side of the vacuum indicated by the red arrow in Fig. 3.. Press the button down and hold it to unlock the swing arm.

While holding down the black button, pull the swinging arm (Shaded red in Fig. 4) all the way up. Fig. 5 shows the swinging arm in the correct position. Release the black button to lock the swing arm back in place.

The vacuum can now lock in the upright position as shown in Fig. 6. Note how the tab on the swinging arm overlaps the tab on the main body..

The brushbar is not spinning.


Even though the belts are intact they can still be stretched and will not turn the brush. Here is a link to the belts you need:

I have a Dyson DC14..I was vacuming and when I stopped the vacum would not stand up..it wouldn't click in the stationary poistion. When I turned it on all the suction is coming from the hose even though it...


Yes! Stand behind the machine. Hold the handle at about 45 degree angle. Remove the airway inspection valve (press the yellow release button that's between the right wheel and the clear bin and then just pull away that curved piece of plastic pipe). Inside, where that pipe plugs in, you will see a square plastic molding that should slide up and down. Push that square piece upwards until it snaps in to place. The machine will then stand upright.
I value your feedback so please remember to rate this response.  Good luck!

Our Animal DC14 hose unraveled, can we replace it?


Yes you can replace the hose youself. First buy the hose (through Dyson directly or google to see a list of online retailers). All you'd need to do is to unhook the hose from the bottom - you'll remove the canister/dirt bin and push the lower cord hook/cup off the back of the machine from the front and simply click the new hose into place.
