Having problems with your Dyson DC14 All floors Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?

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 is tilted. Can I do something to fix this?


Answers :

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.\015\012

Hi. My dyson dc14 wand works great then all of a sudden if something too big or even just the carpet it makes a sucking noise & the purple round bit in the actual Hoover makes a funny noise & then the suction isn't as great. If it turn it off then on again it comes back to normal! Help!!


Sounds like a blockage. I have a DC14 and I have never had this problem. You can easily remove the wand from the flexible hose and the flexible hose from the machine to check for a blockage. Don't allow paper or larger items to go into the machine, e ... Vacuums

Hello! The suction in my Dyson animal is very poor. I discovered small holes in the internal hose, but even after a quick duct tape fix, still having issues...sounds like the seal from the canister to the vacuum is leaking air. I know I need a major repair but my mother in law is coming tonight! Any suggestions? ~Lisa

No suction on my Electrolux central vacuum in all outlets even though motor is running and there is no clog in the hose.


I would start with washing out the ilter really good and letting dry. then try the system. ... Electrolux Central Vacuum

No suction Just received my refurb. dyson animal bagless. Finally figured out how to get it all together, turned it on and there is no suction coming up thru the beater bar. The hair is just collecting around the bar and not going up into the canister. It appears all the suction is going thru the open red end of the attachment hose, which has a vented cover piece. Am I missing a piece or is there a switch to turn of the attachment suction?


So the red hose isn't connected to a part on the vaccum so like it is connected to the connester but not to an opening just above the beater bar, this is the only idea i can supply you with. good luck, maybe i got lucky and helped you out. ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

My Dirt Devil M082476 Full Bag indicator light keeps coming on when I turn my vacum up to full intensity. I have tried changing the bag and checked that all hose is clear. If I leave the vacum on low intensity the suction is minimal and does not increas when I turn up the suction. Is there a solution to this? I look forward to your response

No suction I have new belts. Everything is clean. No clogs. When I turn it on it smells like rubber , the brush doesnt spin. Everything seems to be free flowing.. Roller brush isnt stuck on the ends. Took off hose to make sure no clogs anywhere. There is not even suction thru the hose with the handle in upright position.


Generally, the problem is that the belt is not running the brushes.  This is caused by one of the following:\015\012\015\012\015\012beater brush is jammed.  This is either an object stuck in the brush or im ... Hoover U6437-900 / U6439-900 Windtunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum

I was vacuuming the vent in the bottom of the fridge. I must have picked something because the motor got wildly noisey. I cleaned out hoses, etc. There is no suction. I can see the blades of the motor and they are not turning around. Model U4269-930 Series B.72. Can I get at the motor to see if something is keeping the blades from turning? What would be your suggestion. Many thanks. Pat Sauerman

No suction I just replaced the bag, and normally after this I have a lot of suction. Now that I have changed the bag I have less suction that I had before. Not even enough to picj up dog hair. I snaked he hose and checked all of the connections. It seems to have an air leak but no amount of tape will fix this. I cleaned the filer as well with warm water and dried it and re installed but still absolutely no suction. I am ready to throw it out! Any suggestions would be appreciated


1, Does the blower (discharge) side blow bunches of air??Yes: Something is clogged from the bag to the hose end. Try blowing out the hose from the discharge side.Or: The bag is not properly seated. Make sure that the plastic piece is ... Kenmore 23313 Whispertone Bagged Canister Vacuum

My Kirby G6 light is not turning on when I start the machine. I took off the front piece and removed a lot of hair from the roller and interior. Since I did that, the belt keeps coming off (even though it is fairly new). Is that the reason the light won't turn on? Is there any advice you can give me before I take it in?


The light indicates that the brushroll is spinning. If it isn't coming on, the power nozzle may have been reinstalled incorrectly. Take the nozzle off and then use my step-by-step guide to reinstall it. I expect that it will take care of the problem. ... Kirby Vacuums

I have the Eureka Whirlwind upright vacuum. All of a sudden there is no suction- the hose has suction but not main part. I have no idea- but the brush part is not turning??? should I get a new vacuum or is this an easy fix? thanks!!!!!

I by accident sucked up the corner of a sheet into the powermate of my vacuum. I turned the vacuum off and pulled out the sheet but now the powermate is no longer working (suction works fine) Is this something I can fix on my own?

The hose has no suction and shrinks up so that it can't even be put back on the vacuum w/o turning it off. I have checked everything that I can think of and don't see any blockage anywhere. I washed the filter about one month ago and I clear it at least once a week.


Just happened to me. Took everything apart. No blockage in the flexable tubing or connections then I looked down the hard, telescoping tube and saw that it was occluded. Everything's fine and dandy now. ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

My vacuum isn't working. The red light indicator comes on seconds after I start it, yet there is no blockage and the brush area is free of debris. I checked all the filters and no sign of blockage there either. The brushes don't turn and there is no suction. How can I fix it?

My filter queen just had the motor rebuilt last year and was basically a brand new unit when I got it back. It is not picking anything up now when I vacuum. The beater bar on the carpet attachment is turning fine and when I take all the attachments off the hose I can feel the suction being created like it should be picking up debris just fine. I have emptied the canister even when it did not have much in it; however, it still will not pick anything up off the carpet. It picks up debris tempo


It sounds as if you have a clog inside the "Power Nozzel". They mention that there are "no user serviceable parts within the Majestic® Power Nozzle" My advice would be to see if you can see a clog with in reachable distance and try to remove the ... Filter Queen Vacuums
