Having problems with your Dyson DC14 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?

My dyson will not pick up from the floor. it will pick up from the extension wand but not off of the floor where the main vacuuming is done


Answers :

Usually this is from a clogged pipe in the vacuum and filters need to be cleaned. Most vacuums need a phillips screwdriver or a torks driver. Looks like a star. Underneath the vacuum where the rolling brush is at, remove the srews to access the the round brush and the pulley and belt. Look into the airsuction chamber and follow it through untill you can see the debree. You might end up taking the whole thing apart put is quit simple. Make sure it is unplugged while you do this work please.

HI, I have a Kenmore 25813 and it seems like there is an intermittent short. When I have the extension wand on and the power floor attachment on, when it rotate the wand the light cuts out and so does the power floor attachment, when I twist it back it comes on again. I don't have this problem if I remove the wand and just use the crevice tool with the hose. Any idea where the short might be and can I fix it myself? Thanks. Gary
