Dyson eats my carpet
\015 I've had the purple machine for 2 yrs now. i was so excited when i got it!! i'm a clean freak! well not ten min in and it ripped up part of my carpet. i guess it really did "****" well it strated to pull out fibers and now i have to replace all the carpet..and since this has happened now it makes the most god awful loud clicking sounds. i think ill buy a kirby next time. i should of gotten one to begin with.\015
That Dyson vacuum model has a bad roller design. It is more like a comb instead of a brush. You will need to be careful not to get loose carpet strands caught in it. The bad noise is damage done to the clutch system, which is driving the belts to the roller brush. That clutch will have to be replaced.
When using the Dyson or for that matter any other vacuum cleaner that has a motorized roller brush, you need to make sure that you AVOID open carpet edges since the suction end ( which has a roller with the brush) will grab open fiber ends. You should use an attachment or floor tool when cleaning open edges of your rug or carpet. Most vacuum cleaners come with a range of attachments that be used be used appropriately.

I have an animal dyson. The front nose dives into the carpet when moving the dyson in the forward motion, fine when pulling back. A huge amount of effort is required to move it forward. Took it to a technician and he said he could find nothing wrong. He had only short nap carpet for test. Works fine on short nap, if the carpet nap has any lenght to it like shag, the dyson severly nose dives. It's like the nose is sucked into the carpet.

I have a Dyson all-floor model (not the ball). I recently replaced my carpet to a Frieze. Since replacing the carpet, the Dyson is extremely hard to push. It almost forms a "seal" with the carpet. Seems to work fine on Berber carpet and laminate floor. My husband has checked to make sure the brushes are working, hoses are not clogged and belts are OK. I've had it for about a year. It is virutally impossible to push on the new carpet. Any ideas?

My brand new dyson dc33 vacuum ($399.00) is making an annoying sound when applied using a carpet setting. This only occurs on my thinner carpets, not on my thicker carpets. Do I have to inspect the clutch and fan mechanism and replace it? It's a brand new vaccum for god's sakes!

My Dyson is not picking up on the carpet as good as it use to. The brush doesn't seem to engage on the carpet unless I hold the angle upright. It's very uncomfortable to hold it at that angle. What would correct this problem?

We have a Dyson for several years and now it is very hard to push. In fact the front edge seems to be digging into the carpet as if it is a snow plow. Is Dyson a piece of **** and only lasts a few years ?
It probably needs a new brush roll. Not surprising after "several years". On some models it's advisable, or even essential, to fit a new soleplate at the same time. An easy job and not too costly. ... Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

I have a dyson dc07 with a malfuncitoning clutch diagnosed here on fixya. I've replaced the clutch and the grinding noise when the clutch is engaged for carpet and non rotating brush problem presists. This is after replacement of the clutch with a new part. Install of the new part went well and there are no otehr apparent problems with the unit. Ideas? The unit is only a couple years old and not used that much on carpet. For an expensive vacuum I'm not that impressed with it at this point.
