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

My Dyson DC14 Blitz It will not switch on. I have checked the fuse in the plug and it is fine. I have also vreified that the switch is working by using a multimeter. I'm guesing that there is an internal fuse blown (or worse!). Any suggestions?


Answers :

I ended up dismantling the Dyson in an effort to determine the problem. In doing so I discovered that if I rotated the motor backwards by a quarter of a turn, it came back to life. Rather odd really. The Dyson is working fine now, and event benefited from a bit of a clean up during the dismantling!

I have Nutone VX550C. Motor runs intermittently (cycles on and off rapidly--the light on the handle is blinking furiously) when I use the on/off switch on the hose. This happens at all of the wall connectors, so suggests a hose contact problem. Motor runs continuously when I turn it on at the switch on the wall unit.


The unit does have a switchs the PVC outlets, and it sounds like the hose mech to operate the switches is broken, and intermittently making contact. A replacement hose would likely fix the problem. Looked them up on the net, and they're not che ... Broan-NuTone VX550 Bagged Central System Vacuum

My bissell proheat upright steam cleaner is spraying out through the attachments just fine, but will not spray to the floor when using upright. we've taken it apart to find that there is no water at all going through one of the hoses, but it appears the hose is connected behind the on/off and heat switches, we can't seem to figure out how to get in there to replace that hose....any suggestions on how to access this?? just curious how you would get in to replace the hose, we know it is the hose..
