Having problems with your Dyson DC14 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?
Same here... I have a DC-15 Animal, it was making a clogged type noise and before I had time to react, it stopped working and I smelled burning rubber. I also noticed that the ball was really hot.
It's too late to call support, but I intend on doing so in the morning. I've only had my Dyson for a year, so I'm sure it's covered, however, I have no idea where my receipt is.
Did they take care of your issue?
You sucked up something that stopped the brush from turning. This made the belt slip causing a burning smell.

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?

Dyson animal We bought a Dyson Animal from Sears a few years ago along with a service contract. We took it each year to be serviced. One year I took it because it lost it's suction.

I now have the cleaner in my garage and am using my old vacuum because I just can't seem to get anywhere with Sears. Please help me. We paid almost $600.00 and now it can't b

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

Hello- My wand has lost a lot of it's suction. I am sure it's clogged somewhere. I cleaned everything after watching a video on U Tube, but it is still not sucking properly.

Had my dyson root cyclone for about 4 years now, and in the last year it's had a few problems. About 4 months ago it started to make this awful grinding sound when the roller bar was engaged and I took it to a repair shop and they said it was the roller bar itself. The shop replaced the part and it worked fine for a couple of months and then it started to make the grinding noise again. I tried the clutch reset suggestion (turn it on its side and turn the carpet/bare floor switch slowly back and

Oreck Upright Hi Redev, I'm not sure what model I have (about 6 years old...upright, looks like the one in the picture). I changed the belt (which was torn) and then the next time I used it, it cut off on me. Now if won't turn on at all. (I turn the switch on and off and nothing happens as if it is not plugged in but it is!). I noticed at the top where the power cord enters the handle, it is all frayed. Could the electrical wires have detached? Anything you think I should check before taking it
The cord could be bad and will ahve to be replaced. It would have to have a problem inside the handle or down by the motor. ... Oreck XL2600 Vacuum
