"My DC14 Won't Stand Up"
« on: July 16, 2011, 05:18:49 PM »
“My Dyson DC14 wont stand up” is the thing many people ask about. If your Dyson DC14 has this symptom, it likely isn’t picking up too well either. It may well be dropping some of the debris on the floor as well.

It was OK yesterday wasn’t it? What happened? You were using it, then it wouldn’t stand up.

Its actually quite a simple thing to fix that anyone can do at home. You don’t need any tools, you don’t need any expertise.

Our friends at Nelson Vacuums in Australia have made a short video on the subject that tells you everything you need to know. You will laugh at how much of a simple fix this is. Click the triangle ”play” emblem on the video below (Note the video below is of a DC07, but this aspect of these machines is the same as your DC14 and the fix is identical).

How do we replace that black piece and the spring? On the previous video, those pieces are still in place. Ours is broken, so I can manually lift up the piece that stops it from standing upright (as shown in the video), but I would like to fix it for good so I don't have to do that all the time. I believe the pieces I need are 90019989 and 90122303, but I have no idea how to get to them. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.
