HI THERE,
FIRSTLY REMOVE SOLEPLATE AND ENSURE THE BELT ACTUALLY TURNS WITH THE BRUSH BAR WHEN YOU TURN IT BY HAND AND ENSURE BRUSHBAR IS SAT IN HOUSING CORRECTLY, IF BELT DOESNT TURN OR IF SNAPPED THEN CLUTCH WILL NEED REPLACING ( I SELL FOR £5 )BUT IF BELT IS FINE THEN PUT SOLEPLATE BACK ON AND ENSURE CLUTCH IS TURNED TO AUTO BEFORE TURNING ON.

How to change belt in dyson upright model dc07


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

There are two versions of DC07 - some include a brush bar which rotates all the time when the vacuum is running. And some include a brush control clutch mechanism which allows you to turn off the brush bar for hard floor cleaning. If your machine has the brush control, you'll see the dial on the front of the cleaner head.

If you have a DC07 without the brush control feature, you can replace the belt as shown in our online Support guide: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc07/dc07-standard/maintaining-your-dyson-machine/change-the-belt1/belt-fitting-preparation

However, if you have a DC07 with the brush control feature, the clutch mechanism uses belts engineered to last the lifetime of the machine in normal use. These are not designed to be replaced by the user, and we would advise against attempting to change these as damage may be caused to your machine.

For further advice on having your machine repaired, or to order replacement belts for a DC07 without brush control, please contact our experts directly. You can reach us by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Brush won't turn on dyson dc07


There was a belt that was to be attached to the motor shaft under the belt cover, be sure that it didn't pop off. the recommended fix is to replace the clutch, not the belts in the clutch. if you only replaced the belts it could still be a bad clutch.

If you need any help feel free to contact me.

DC07 grinding noise


I had the same problem with mine, I took it to a repair shop. The problem is where the belt passes through from the brush and goes inside the machine. Move the belt over a bit and you will see that a plastic guide has been bent over and is pressing onto the brush, which causes the noise. Just bend it straight again and it stops.

DC07 dyson brush not turning


Hi Robin,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC07. Your machine's brush control is designed to make a ratcheting sound to warn you if an obstruction is jamming the brushbar. The easiest way to check everything is correct with the machine is to follow the steps shown in our online support guide:

http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=804&product=DC07-ANIMAL_US

This should resolve the issue, but if the cleaner continues to make the noise after you've removed any obstructions from the cleaner head, please call us free on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US), so we can help.

Kind regards,

Jack

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).

Kind regards,

Jack

Replace brush bar on dyson dc07


Replacing the brush bar on a DC07 is quite straight forward and how to do it should be shown in the user manual.
If you dont have the manual, or if it isnt covered, have a look at www.dysonmedic.com which has some great info on your machine.

I have a dyson - bought it 3 yrs. ago and the roller brush stoped working - doesnt pick up anything. Can you help? The brush doesn't roll or spin. Where can we take it to be fixed and is it under warrenty?...


Don't worry it's probably just that the belt has broken or stretched. Your actually supposed to change them yearly. So if its been three years thats probably the case. Here is a link to the belt you need and a manual with instrutions:

Rotating brush will not turn on my Dyson DC07


Yes I had the same problem on my animal Dysom. There is a button on the top of the dysom that turns the cacuum on. Right beside that button is another one that turns on and off the brush!!! Good luck!!! I accidently one day bumped that button and couldn't get my brush to work but after troubleshooting it, that was my solution.
