I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC24 - however, I'm sure we can help you get it working again. If the machine isn't picking up as well as usual, there may be a blockage in the machine, and the filters may need a wash.
The easiest way to find and remove any blockages is to follow the steps shown in our online support guide:
In normal use, the filters need to be washed at least once a month, as shown in the video below. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 24 hours for the filters to dry completely before replacing them.
This should resolve the issue, but if you'd like any further assistance, please get in touch with us directly so we can help. You can call us free on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

Hi- I have the same problem: suction fine, but the brushbar was not spinning. I went 1st to the Dyson site and went thru their troubleshooting guide and I'd done all those things, so I called Dyson (1-866-MY DYSON in the USA) and they walked me thru a very simple solution.
What worked was to "rest" the bare floor/carpet adjustment, and it's very easy! You do this by clicking the carpet to bare floor adjustment back and forth at least 5 times. Make sure when you end it's on carpet. Then tilt it back all the way from the upright position so it's flat on the floor and turn it onto it's left side. The carpet indicator should be below the word carpet. THAT WAS IT! As soon as I turned it on again, the brush bar is spinning great! I wish I could tell you right now how well it picks up, but unfortunately I took out the filter and rinsed it, so I have to wait until tomorrow to **** anything up. However, I'm sure it will work now that the brush bar is moving. Like I said, the suction was fine.
Just as an FYI--If you call, they will have you try other things to rule out other problems 1st. I had already done all the things suggested in their troubleshooting guide on their site and the only additional thing they asked me to try was to turn it on and tilt it back as though you are going to vacuum and make sure the suction from the top tube had stopped, as it normally does, and mine did.
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: no suction on dyson dc24 ball
Well i just fixed my Dyson Ball with the same problem you have. My wife and i found out it was a crumpled receipt in the lower section of the hose at the upright/handheld pivot #3 in diagram and it was catching cat hair and other things. I began by removing the canister and turned on the vacuum to see if the direct access to the fan had suction. Then i moved to #5; i reattached the canister and threw in some cat hair into it from the bottom. i turned on the vaccum to see if it spinned around; it didnt. I then moved to #4, i removed the head and then turned on the vaccum to see if maybe the head had a leak at the top connecter; as i predicted the strength was minimal. I then worked my way to #1 to see if the strength was the same or if there was a difference. no difference for us. Well then it must be #3.. of course the last one i checked. I used a small flashlight and peared in and i didnt see anything... i then used a coathanger very softly as to not puncture the hose. i then noticed some hair being pushed out but the main culprit wasnt showing. my wife gave me needle nose pliers and i pried the hose off of the top connection in #3; so i could get a better look; you may be able to push it off with your hands. and viola! a crumpled reciept for 3 Monster energy drinks.... the same ones....i drink... oops!... hopes this helps. just go through it step by step. youll know its working once stuff begins to spin in the canister. almost regretted throwing that dyson registry junk away.

Solution to Dyson Ball wil Not stand up / Kickstand will not go down:
I had this problem on my Ball. The metal guides on the red foot lever had jumped out of their tracks and you have to get them back into the guide tracks on the rear wheel assemblies. I pulled on the affected wheel assembly to get the metal post on the red kickstand to reset it where it should be.

Testimonial: "Thank you so much.....My son had the vacuum but is now unable to use it & I have it, but had no instructions..Again THANK YOU...Barbara R. Harper "
Hi its Darran at Dyson.
With the machine switched off, press the re-set switch on the side of the head, making sure you push the button in as far as you can. When you switch the machine back on and lower it into the vacuuming position, the brush bar should start turning.
If this doesn't rsolve the problem, please contact our Helpline on 0800 298 0298, between the hours of 7am - 10pm, 7 days a week.
