I have a windsor vsp 14, it is making a bad grinding noise, when I take the top blue piece off it stops, the brush works fine and when I put the top back on it grinds really loud and gets hot. it still vacuums and the belt and brush are working fine, can't figure it out. and when the lid is on I cant see what its grinding on. It only makes a grinding noise when you pull handle back and engade to vacuum flor and stops when you put it upright.

Have Dyson DC 14. When tilt to vacuum, the handle and coiled hose comes away from the unit. The problem started when the little purple ridged curved part on front of vacuum cleaner right below handle came loose and a spring fell out from somewhere--don't know where. I pushed on the purple ridge part and it snapped back on. Now, can't get it loose again, don't know where the spring goes, and handle still comes loose from vacuum.
I'm not positive whether or not this is the wand handle because there are several versions of the DC14. However the device the locks and unlocks the wand in place is pretty similar between all the versions.The first picture is the wand re ... Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

The brush wouldn't work when the selector switch was in carpet mode. Took the power head apart and removed the motor. Everything o.k. in the power head. Checked and found that the neutural wire had pulled out of the connector, the connector was never crimped at the factory. What a day! Took 2 hours and a large pizza to get it done. Neutral wire was in the hose just below the handle. Reconnected the wire and crimped it, put everything back together. It works!!!!

I am getting very little suction from the motor. The hose is clear, the bag new. When I open the bag cover, plug the hose in and turn the vacuum on, there is next to no suction from the motor. What do you think is wrong? How do I remove the cord retractor to get to the two screws that hold the back of the canopy cover?

My handle won't go back up after an extended vacuuming session during which I used the hand/broom/animal hair attachments several times, thus pulling the hose out/putting it back in, starting/ stopping, and suddenly no matter what I do short of forcing it (and even if I try forcing it a bit) I can't raise the handle to put it away.

Clogged hose A makeup brush (about 3.5 inches long) was sucked up through the vacuum hose. It won't come back through the same way it came in because the bristles in the brush are expanded.
