How to Identify and Fix Common Vacuum Problems ?

Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced Vacuum Technicians :

The Dyson DC14 is a moderately-priced upright vacuum with premium suction. It boasts a telescope wand extender for detailed cleaning, a bagless and hygienic one-touch disposal, and root cyclone technology that certifies it allergy friendly. However, it`s worth noting there`s some concern about the vacuum`s portability.
The DC14 was released in 2004. It is a revision of the DC07 upright vacuum cleaner with lower centre of gravity and `telescope reach`. It uses Dyson`s Root 8 Cyclone technology, which maintains constant suction.

Most cases of a jammed or stuck brush bar are quick and easy to fix, simply pulling the debris gently from the brush bar. Alternatively, if you need to clear a problematic blockage, you can take the brush bar out of the housing easily, for quick maintenance.
Look for a control knob on the front right hand side of your Dyson vacuum. If your machine has a knob it is a clutched model. If your machine does not have a knob it is a non-clutched model.
The main difference between the Dyson V8 Animal and V8 Absolute is that the V8 Animal is designed to powerfully suck up and eliminate pet hairs.
Ensure that the brushbar button, which is gray and located next to the power button, is turned on. If this is not the issue, then the brushbar itself may be damaged or stuck. Remove and check the brushbar for built-up debris using this Dyson Ball Animal Brushbar Replacement Guide.
Wash your HEPA filter with warm water and allow it to dry if your model specifically states that water cleaning is safe. You can also soak your filter in hot water if it is extremely dirty. Clean non-washable, permanent HEPA filters using a vacuum to remove dust and debris.
All Dyson vacuum cleaners have two filters, a pre motor filter and a post motor filter. This filter is a post motor Hepa filter for DC07 and DC14 Dyson vacuums, it filters air which has passed through the motor.
Filters in Dyson air purifiers have been designed to last up to a full year, based on 12 hours of daily use. However, the filter may need replacing earlier depending on environmental conditions. If you live in a highly polluted city, you may find it needs changing sooner.
A legitimate certified HEPA filter should be labeled and signed off, so that you know it has been tested and passed inspection to ensure that it meets the necessary health and safety standards.
120 voltage. Just like your toaster.
Developed by a team of 370 engineers globally, these latest vacuums use a Dyson Hyperdymium motor which generates up to 230 air watts of suction[1] and 5-stage filtration captures 99.99% of dust particles down to 0.3 microns[2] for a powerful deep clean.
Motor wattage: 12 amps.
The model number is on the top left of the Bar code. Here is list of some very common positions or areas of the Dyson Vacuum where you will find the model and serial sticker.
While for upright and cylinder vacuums, the model number is sometimes located on the underside of the vacuum but can also be behind the clear dust canister (if it has one) or underneath the action where the extension tube is stored.

The beater bar on my Dyson won’t turn. The vacuum runs and suctions but the bar won’t turn and the belt is not broke. The beater bar did get a carpet fiber caught and wrapped around it which stopped the bar and I removed the bar to cut the fiber loose and replaced it and now it won’t turn
ANSWER : The belt doesn’t have to be broken to make the vacuum not work correctly. If the belt is stretched the vacuum won’t operate the way it is supposed to. You can get replacement Dyson Belts here:

Kenmore canister vacuum model 116-25512506. It has a 2 stage switch on the handle, the vacuum motor will not work, the carpet beater attachment does work, the vacuum motor will not cut on at all with either stage, 1st stage is vac only, 2nd is vac a carpet attachment. Carpet attachment will work, vac does not.
ANSWER : Try to find the reset button. It should be somwhere near the bottom area. It looks like a red dot that you can push inward. If you can press and hold the reset button, it will restart your suction and solve your problem.

Hi,
.


Check that when you pull back handle to vacuum the clutch control knob which is located front lower left side of machine moves to drive position & is not stuck in off or park position.
Rotate it to drive if it’s at off or park when you have lowered handle.
If after checking this you still have no brush rotation you will need to remove clutch unit. You can either replace the belts or fit new clutch.
If you don’t have the clutch arrangement then just turn the three plastic screws on the sole plate (Under front of machine) to unlock pull off sole plate & fit new belt to brush roller.

ANSWER : What is the exact model number of that unit. There are several with that name. The only things that it could be are the handle mechanism that activates the brushes or the indicator is not working nad the level that selects the brushes is not working. The unit has no belts.

ANSWER : If pushing the reset button doesn’t help try having your local Aerus dealer check out the 2 prongs in the power head where it all connects. Sometimes they go bad.

My carpet cleaner (bissell proheat plus) is not steaming, dispensing cleaner. Seems like there’s a little thingy that should be spinning or turning….. When I work a small area of carpet, it just leaves behind dry blobs of carpet gunk like pet hair. I had to use a carpet sweeper to clean up. FYI – I filled the cleaning fluid container and after trying to clean the carpet, it did empty out but the carpet isn’t wet. Any tips? The manual doesn’t help.
ANSWER : You need to replace the pump belt. Here is the belt you need:

The beater bar motor doenst work when i push the bar button the bar button doesnt light up like power button how can i test bar motor or bar switch or what is the common problem wiyh this model I have 2 that dont work the same way
ANSWER : If it do not work …and you already are on the second one that behaved in the same way it may be a problem with the power in your place and the cause it may be the main fuse…Im not sure where is located in this model but it has to be near the power cord entry …Anyway ..to check the power flow you have to open it without breaking the power flow …and than plug int and push the start ..and with a power checker (screwdriver like that checks the presence of the electric power ) or a voltmeter ..or other measurement device …check the power flow from the entry to the motor…..this way you will see if the power is present …if all seam to be ok ..even at the contact point at the motor…it means that this is damaged …and for electric motors the usually damage are the coil magnetos …

There is a rubber valve on the top of Dyson DC14 all floors. When the vacum is locked in its upright position or the hand wand is used there is a whistling sound coming out of the valve. When the vac is used as a floor vac, it does not make the sound. Is this something that I can fix? Is there an obstruction somewhere that would be causing this sound? thank you.
ANSWER : The Fixya user in this repair is giving out personal contact information rather then helping the customer out on the Fixya board. This defeats the whole purpose of Fixya if the “TheDysonTeam” just gives out his phone number and helps the customer over the phone where the repair advice he gives can not be seen by anyone else on fixya. I was also under the impression that giving personal contact information on repairs is strictly prohibited.
