Having problems with your Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?

Answers :

I have two ideas but won't swear either will be the cure all you need. I would almost expect that you have already considered each of them but since you didn't raise them as possibilities, I'm passing them along.
\015\012First - the switch is bad which is not all that uncommon with Dysons.
\015\012Second - the power cord is bad which, again, is not uncommon.
\015\012You can test both with a Multimeter or a simple continuity tester which you can get at your local harware store for between $5 and $10. You can get one on eBay for under $3, including s/h charges. Another handy toll would be an AC Voltage Detector. Again, available at your local hardware store or on eBay for as little as $4.29 total price. The Voltage Detector will alow you to determine where in the power cord any fault may be. If the fault is near one or the other ends of the cord, you can simply cut off the faulty portion, reattach a plug or switch connectors, and save the cost of purchasing a new cord.
\015\012I will not go into the method of using the devices mentioned above but they are terribly easy to use and mostly self-explanatory. If the above ideas do not solve your problem and you need futher help in tracking it down, I'm ready to be of assitance.
\015\012Best of luck - my fingers are crossed hoping the above will lead to a solution.

I am trying to change an old fashioned fuse, (house lights), luckily had a spare one. Have put the 15amp fuse wire through the whole thing, and trying to describe if I've got it right is alitle awkward, this is what i've done, cut a piece of 15amp wire a little longer than the old one, then loking at it, taken it straight through and round to left as I'm looking at it, and put the screw in, and obviously done the same for other side. My problem is that I don't remember taking the screws out of w

My dc 05 isnt working and i cant understand why , i have cleaned all filters etc and i also changed the fuse on the plug , which after i didi that it attempted to start but then jus cut out again so i thought the fuse had blown again , so i checked the fuse but its working fine could there still be a blockage somewhere in it or is it something electrical which means my dyson has to go to the dump :(

Most common cause of this problem is a wire broken inside the flex, usually either just where it leaves the plug (easy to fix) or at the other end (more of a problem). In either case, this is no reason to dump the machine - it can be fixed at a fract ... Dyson DC05 Cylinder Bagless Canister Cyclonic Vacuum

I was given a model 6591, plugged it in and it worked but didnt "****" and didnt sound right. I turned it off and removed the hose from the back found a badly plugged hose. Removed the hair plug cleaned filters and when I tried to turn it on again. Now the motor will not turn on or even make a noise. I hear there is a fuse that can be blown? How can I find the fuse if there is one? Thank You Ron

Hi guys, I have a bissell 9400 2x proheat with a fault. When you turn on the machine it trips the RCD in my house and makes a poping noise, i am a little technical so i had a look inside. The pcb under the handle was damaged with burn marks i unpluged this and tried again and the machine powered up, don't think the rollers moved though. What do i need to change roller motor,pcb?? Help please!! Regards Russ

I've seen the same problem in one of these we had in for repair. The pcb in the handle is involved with controlling the roller motor. The problem is with the motor. In my view, this machine is a triumph of design over practicality... The motor is loc ... Vacuums

I was trying to repair my wife's kitchenaid mixer and took part of it apart, including the back part, where the electrical connections are. The original problem was the plastic gear was damaged -- I finally had the good sense to find the solution for that problem on the internet and replaced the damaged part. But now the mixer just won't turn on. I don't think I damaged anything in the electrical section, but I suspect I either blew a fuse or somehow disconnected something.
