Dyson DC14 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

How to Identify and Fix Common Vacuum Problems ?

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

The tool holder is attached to the machine just below the handle. A combination tool is attached to the tool holder. Check that the underside of the cleaner head or tool is clean and free from any objects that may cause damage.
To put an attachment on your vacuum, press the red button near the base of the handle to release it and turn it into a handheld wand. Connect the hose to the top of the handle and slide your attachment into the opening at the other end of the wand.
You can use the Supersonic without an attachment, too! I typically do this when I`m deep conditioning my hair. After shampooing with LivSo shampoo, I`ll apply my Oribe hair mask and turn up the heat on my Dyson to help the product better penetrate my strands.
Dyson V7, V8, V10, and V11

All accessories on the V7, V8, V10, and V11 are interchangeable and will work on any of the aforementioned models. All of these vacuums use Dyson`s red button clickable accessory system.

To remove, wash and replace the brush bars:

Use a coin to turn the end cap a quarter counterclockwise until it clicks into the unlocked position. Rotate the end cap to the open position. Gently slide the main brush bar out of the cleaner head.

I don`t want to buy the full upgrade set, can I buy the new, re-engineered attachments individually? Yes, all attachments for the Dyson Airwrap™ multi-styler are available to buy individually, in multiple colours.
The Dyson Airwrap comes with six attachments, which vary a bit depending on whether you get the long, original, or curly version.
Dyson engineers have developed the Hair screw tool to capture pet dander and hair around your home. The conical brush bar removes hair fast, while automatically de-tangling by spiralling hair straight into the bin.
Attachments are quite easy to clean – just fill a sink or bucket with warm water and about a teaspoon of dish soap and drop them in. For any attachment that has hair stuck in it, you can use your cleaning toothbrush to brush it away.
Can I exchange one Dyson machine for another? For purchases made on Dyson.com, Dyson does not offer exchanges unless the machine was damaged in transit. Machines are covered under warranty service with repair and servicing support.
While people only soaked the attachments, rather than the electrical part of the vacuum, Dyson revealed only one bit of the appliance can be safely washed. “We do not recommend that owners expose their machines to water,” a Dyson spokesperson told The Sun.
Some of the best vacuum cleaners come with a standard attachment (like an extension wand or upholstery tool) that will help you get to those hard-to-reach spots or smaller nooks where crumbs and debris get trapped.
The brush bar on the cleaner heads of Dyson vacuums have carbon fibre bristles that removes the static attraction between fine dust and hard floors which allows the vacuum to then suck it up easily.
As of now, Dyson is the only place where you can purchase an AirWrap Complete set that includes the longer barrels (1.6 inch and 1.2 inches) but not the . 8 inch barrels. Otherwise, you`ll have to purchase the longer barrels separately for $39 a set.
You can do a quick blast dry without a nozzle, but for focused heat on specific sections of the hair, the nozzle allows you to lift the roots and add volume.
A hair dryer diffuser is a tool that`s attached to your blow dryer that helps evenly disperse air over a larger area of your hair. It`s round and covered with “spikes” that help keep your curls separated while creating more lift at the root.
The Dyson founder admitted the company is suffering supply issues as a result of the outbreak. Sir James Dyson has called the coronavirus outbreak “the worst crisis in living memory”, adding that Dyson is suffering product supply and component shortages as a consequence.
The suction power, motor, and battery are all the same. Dustbin is the same on the Absolute and Animal model and slightly smaller (at 0.54 L) on the Motorhead version. The only notable differences among each of these models are the cleaning heads and accessories included.
To install the right dock you`ll need countersunk screws 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 inch, anchor screws for drywall or wood screws if installing on studs. Make sure you place the charger cord in the dock before you mount it on the wall. Helpful? Thank you for your feedback!
If you want convenience, you can setup up your Dyson in the kitchen, living area or living space. Or, if you want to store your Dyson away, you can setup it up in a store room or entryway closet. Just make sure the ceiling in the closet is flat.
Press the wand release button on the end of the hose and slide the wand all the way down. Position the wand and hose in the handle recess on your machine. Slide the wand down into the handle until it clicks into position.
What you need to know. Dyson`s Pet Grooming Kit is designed to remove your pet`s loose hairs, dander and dead skin flakes and, according to Dyson, can be used on any pet that is accustomed to being groomed with a slicker brush. (Our pets would like a word with Dyson about that assertion.)
Never vacuum your pet hair with the ordinary attachment on your vacuum. It will unnerve the dog, but at the same time, it`s possibly hurtful and doesn`t work particularly well. You`re better off putting some money into a specific machine that uses softer bristles made especially for your dog`s skin and hair.
Wand storage clip. Part no. 970129-01. Handily stores the Combination and Crevice tools on the wand of your vacuum. So they`re always there when you need them.

Parts replacement We have a Hoover Steam Vac that has a broken part #10 in your picture or Part # 37271035. Does this part cover the whole top section of the Vac? Is it hard to replace? Where can you get the best prices on Hoover parts? I have been on Hoovers website and they don’t even recognize this Steam Vac. which is hard to believe they don’t even recognize their own unit? Thanks Ray
ANSWER : This the hood or top cover. There some screws on the bottom as well as on the top, then it comes off.

We are unable to find a replacement part that the filter attaches to in the dirt cup on our Eureka Boss Pro Model 411. This part seals the top of the dirt cup and holds the filter in place. What is the part name or model number for the replacement?
ANSWER : I just called Eureka (1-800-282-2886) and asked for the dust cover lid. It was part number 61538-1. They said they could ship it to me or I could call one of the authorized service centers nearby to see if they had one. I wasn’t in a hurry and the total to ship it to me was just under $10.

My older Dyson DC14 (the purple one) early model with a clutch on the beater bar belt needs a clutch replacement. The bar has been cleaned and there are no worn or damaged parts so I conclude that the clutch at the motor end of the belt needs to be replaced. I can find the part online but no instructions on how to disassemble the vacuum to get to and replace it. Dysons only advice is to give me the address and phone of the nearest service center. Can you help me?
ANSWER : Have a look at www.dysonmedic.com which has some very useful info on dismantling and repairing Dysons.
.
.Although this site doesnt actually cover the DC14 yet, the DC14 is very similar to the DC07 so as regards dissassembling the machine, and replacing the clutch, my experience is that the DC07 info will enable you to do the job.

Parts Hi I have the Eurkea steam cleaner model 2450 and was wondering how do you take the front part off where you can see the water sucking up from carpet so this can be cleaned. Also I think the spring in the part that holds the water has come off another part is this able to be fixed or can I just purchase a new water holding tank and if so where?
Thanks

Lost Part I have a 6.5 hp 18 gallon shop vac ultra pro. There is a part that goes into the inside of the tank and screws into the collection hose that attaches it to the tank. This part accidentally got thrown away when someone dumped it and now I cannot attach the hose to use the vacuum. Can this part be purchased separately?
ANSWER : I found a manual online for the shop vac and found the part number. Did locate part online.
.Thanks,

I need to replace the brushbaron my DC17 Animal model Dyson. It’s almost four years old. I can’t find the correct part number on the Dyson Website and I can’t seem to find a Dyson repair center in Albuquerque, NM.

What are my alternatives? If I can’t service this machine without returning it to Dyson, I won’t ever buy another one.

ANSWER : Hi,
.
.The original Dyson part number for the brush bar (often called brush roll) is: 911961-01
.
.If you type the above part number into Google Products (click link below) you will get a list of suppliers at varying prices. A genuine Dyson part will cost about $20-25. There are some cheaper replacements available but you may need a different belt to use these, so I suggest you buy an original. Make sure the supplier states the part is Original / Genuine Dyson or OEM.

.
.I can’t help you locate a Dyson service centre in Albuquerque, but you should be able to fit the new brush bar yourself. If you do need a local service centre, you can call Dyson on the following number – they will provide details of your nearest authorised service centre:

The female part of the catch which holds the lid to the accessories compartment closed has broken. This forms part of the handle to the vacuum cleaner.We’ve had the vacuum for less than a year but cant find the receipt so i think i will just have to pay for the parts. What is the part called that i need or the part number and where can i get it from. Many thanks
ANSWER : Even if you do not have the receipt you are still entitled to one or two year warranty.
Since appliance sales are recorded after-sale by manufacturer, you need to contact the manufacturer to validate the warranty and get the replacement.
