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

Dyson dc14 died, no power after burning smrll

\015 Foolishly asked my 16 yr old son to vacuum while i was out...He started vacuuming, he noticed it was making a strange noise, a low noise rather than the high rev noise it normally makes....there was also a burning smell...instead of stopping he carried on until the dyson just died...it now does not work at all, tried changing fuse, no different...has he killed it for good? its a dc14 animal, about 3 yrs old. I have 4 children and need to vacuum!!!!..thanks\015

Answers :

It sounds like the motor has overheated and has now been irrepairable damaged.
\015\012The motor has a built in over-current trip to protect itself (and you if it seriously overheated and caught fire). This normally automatically resets itself, however if the motor has just about had it, the moment it is switched on, it just trips again.

\015\012The primary cause of motors overheating is that the filters are not cleaned or replaced frequently enough. Dont be fooled by Dyson's "lifetime filters". They need to be regularly cleaned and replaced when necessary.

Replacement motors are avaible on eBay for about £25, however repalcing one requires good DIY skills and tools.

Have a look at www.dysonmedic.com and see if you feel you can tackle it yourself. If not, take it to a repair shop or call the Dyson helpline.

I'm trying to figure out which dyson vacuum is better, the DC14 or DC17. from what i read, the DC17 is the newer model of the DC14, the DC17 added an extra motor for the brush, but from the dyson site, the DC17 has less suction power. it went from 250AW (dc14) to 220AW (dc17). is that a significant difference that i should be worried about?


Hi,DC17 is much better than DC14. I always believe User's review are much better than what Features Company usually Displays.Read :-http://www.epinions.com/review/Dyson_DC17_Animal_Vacuum/content_404790546052 ... Vacuums

Plugged my Dyson in this morning, switched it on and power came on for not even a second and died. No power what so ever to dyson - checked my house sockets, changed fuse. Still not working - dead as a door mouse. What could it be? Many thanks Sam


It is either your power cable, cable rewind mechanism or your motor. \012\012Try switching it on, and wiggling the lead near the plug and see if it fires up. If it does, remove the moulded plug and fit a standard plug. \012\012If not, lik ... Dyson DC08 Cylinder Bagless Canister Cyclonic Vacuum

I've had my Dyson DC14 vacuum cleaner now for approximately 9 months and been very happy with my purchase. However, It is used sparingly maybe twice a week at the very most. The problem is when I try to use the item on my carpet, you have to push really hard to get it to move. It's as though the suction power is far to strong. It certainly doesn't glide as I think it should. It still picks up as usual but I cannot imagine that having to 'force' the machine to move is the normal operating procedu
