Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

There are a number of reasons why your brush roller has stopped moving. General maintenance to your vacuum is crucial and will help it work at peak performance.

First things first lets focus on the brush roller. Unplug the vacuum and turn it on its side. Look for any noticeable clumps of debris or hair strands that may be caught in the brush roller. Remove these obstructions, probably best to do so with a scissor if it's hair or long pieces of carpet fibers. After removing the debris try manually rotating the brush roller to uncover other hidden clogs. Another thing to take note of is the condition of the bristles on the roll itself. Are they loose or worn down? These are signs that your brush roller is in need of replacing.

While checking out your brush roll you might as well take a look at your vacuums belt. Your belt should be replaced about every three months. After regular usage, the belt will stretch out, lessening the tension on the brush roller. Lesser tension diminishes the brush roller's turn rate and speed. If the belt feels loose then it certainly is affecting your vacuums suction as well as your brush roll not moving at all.

SOURCE: Dyson DC07 Vaccum - brush will not turn

Hi.

Your Dyson has A clutch unit this engages the brush roller when you pull the handle back to vacuum.

Check the clutch control knob which is at the bottom left side of machine looking from the front.
It should rotate to drive position when handle is pulled back.

If it doesnt turn the knob by hand to drive & try the machine.

If you still have no brush rotation after doing all this then UNPLUG machine from mains supply.
Now lay machine on its side & remove the sole plate, This is the cover over the brush roller.
Turn the 3 plastic screws to unlock postition & lift sole plate off.

Now try to yurn brush roller using your hand. It should turn freely if it is difficult to turn look for any foriegn object obstructing the roller.

If no obstruction found then remove the brush roller from the machine & check the bearings in the ends of the brush roller one or both may be siezed up if they are then new brush roller will solve the problem.

If bearings are good then either the clutch is faulty or the second belt which goes clutch to motor has snapped & will need replacing.

It is difficult to fully explain the clutch removing procedure,
But there are service manuals available for these repairs at this site

SOURCE: Dyson vacuum cleaner-brush bar is frozen

Hi If your Dyson has a brush protection design - i.e. roller bar on the top of the hood on the left hand side then the DYson can't be repaired by you- serviceman or professional care can replace it.
However if the Dyson doesn't have the roller bar on top of the hood, flip the machine over so that the beater brush is facing upwards, locate three/four screw heads that can be undone with a coin and remove the sole plate assembly. This should give you a clean view of the brush bar, drive belt and dirt channel. Ensure everything is clean espcially if the brush bar has lots of hair or threads tightly corded around. Then locate the drive belt and check to see if it has snapped. Grasp the beater bar gently upwards and the belt and brush can then be removed. Fit a new belt on carefully and check the tension as it will be tight.

SOURCE: ratchet noise, beater will not turn, belt not

Ok, so I had the same ratching noise and took the advice of many sites directing me to clean the brush. But like most I cleaned the brush and the noise continues and the brush does not spin. Reluctant to take it to get serviced I dug a little deeper and now it works just fine. This is what you need to do as removing any hair from just the brush part will not be enough.
Remove the entire brush bar from the bottom of the Dyson, this means pulling the bar out of the drive belt. This is not to difficult just use a little muscle as the belt will stretch. Once the bar is out grasp hold of the two plastic end caps on the brush bar which the brush bar actual spins in. These two caps are connected by a slim metal rod which runs through the brush bar. Place one hand on each side and begin to twist and pull until one of the caps comes off. Once the cap is off of the one side you can pull the other cap from the other side through the brush bar as this cap will be the one attached to the slim bar I mentioned above. If like mine you will see a ton of hair wrapped around these caps and inside the ends of the brush bar. Clean them out as best as possible.
After you clean it out, run the cap with the rod back through the brush bar, attach the other cap and twist and push together. Make sure the caps lineup which each other just like they were when you pulled it out. You'll notice how much more freely the brush bar spins between the two caps then before you cleaned it. Now, pull on the drive belt and feed the brush bar back through and attach as it was to begin with. This did the trick for me.

Belt isn't turning the brush head


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC25. This model is equipped with a belt designed to last the lifetime of the machine, and we'd advise against attempting to access this, as this can void our 5-year guarantee.

If the brushbar isn't rotating, it's likely that the machine just needs resetting. This is easy to do - please follow the steps shown in the video below. Our online support guide may also be useful:

My Dyson DC17 gets carpet fibers stuck between the brush bar belt and where the belt attaches to the machine (not the brush bar end of the belt) Then it shreds the carpet fiber and I have to tear it apart...


Hi there,

If you're concerned that the amount of fibre your carpet is shedding seems to be excessive, I'd recommend consulting your carpet manufacturer to determine if this is normal, as the shedding period will vary according to carpet type and usage. They may also be able to offer advice on the best way to vacuum it, as they sometimes suggest vacuuming certain carpet types using suction only.

Kind regards,

Jack

A cloth belt got wrapped around the roll and after taking the roll off and getting the belt off of it, now the roll won't turn when I turn the vacuum on.


Install new belt. You'll have to remove the botton cover and the remove the brush cylinder and install new bell. What happen when the brush cylinder stop because of the colth belt, it stripped the rubber kogs off the belt. The only thing that turns on your Dyson is the motor. GB...stewbison

Brush does not spin


Here's a parts diagram for the machine. It took me a bit to find it. Dyson doesn't want to give any kind of parts diagrams or such that I could find. Anyway, I'd say your drive belt is probably either broken or slipping. More than likely the first one. Just make sure that the Brush bar isn't all jambed up with hair and whatnot. Which you've probably already done, but I fixed my neighbors about a year ago, and her's was so clogged up that it would barely turn with the belt intact.
The diagram will also give you a good idea of how they go together and what parts will come off of what. Hope this helps.

Brush wont turn belt not broken no sure how to get to shaft to see if it is turning


Hi there,

Sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC07. If the brushbar in your cleaner doesn't seem to be rotating, please check you have the brush control set to 'Carpets', as it won't rotate when set to 'Hard floors', or if the cleaner is standing in the upright position.

If the brush control is set correctly and the brushbar still won't turn, it's probably best if you get in touch with us directly. One of our experts will be happy to run through some troubleshooting over the phone with you, and recommend the best course of action. You can call us free on 08002980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Brush not turning


The belt doesn't have to be broken to be non-functioning. If the belt is intact but stretched it won't turn the brush. You can get belts here:

My brus on my Dyson won't turn after some fringe got stuck in it.


You sound like you've broken your belt! If the roller gets stuck the pulley that rotates the belt will have burnt a hole in your belt and broken it. You'll need to contact your local Dyson to obtain parts,
