Re: how do i replace a broken belt on a dc07?
The vacuum must be completely torn apart to replace the belt/clutch assembly. be very careful as the parts will break easily
the assy you need runs around $60 or more at a vac repair shop
i have been in the repair business for 20 years, and the dyson is about the worst one out there
get yourself a Panasonic or a sanitair

Hi I agree with the first 2 solutions above but not the 3rd one. If you have suction coming through the hose when the machine is in upright position then the u bend has nothing to do with this problem.
Right so ... The belt snapped.
The answer to you question is "why did the belt snap" its true that it could just be old age but its more likely to have been caused by a foreign object being sooked up.
How the belt/brushbar/motor interact
Your belt simply connects the motor to the brushbar know as Direct Drive. If an object get inside the space between the motor and the brushbar or if it can jam the brushbar then this will cause the rubber to burn. The motor will keep spinning and the belt wont be able to so will snap.
So its easy to see that the belt has snapped and people just think "'oh the belt has snapped"
You might wonder where im coming from here.
Anyway because the brushbar got jammed it may also have been buckled slighty either as a result of the foreign object causing it to stop suddenly from spinning at high speed or/and the result of the heat build up.
The rattling noise you now find your Dyson making is more than likely because your brushbar is buckled and when it spins the bristles are hitting the housing unit.
Your belt will snap again unless you replace the brushbar
There appears to be an issue with parts connectoed to the belt and brushbar. This iscaused the belt to stick and the heat from this has caused the belt to break adnd also eventually caused the brushbar to melt
It always feels like something must break as it's a really tight fit, but go to www.dysonmedic.com then scroll to the bottom of the page and click on DC07 belt and brushroll replacement guide. You'll find everything you need there. Good luck!
if its the part im thinking of its a small spade like catch thats glued into a hole in the chassis normally id lay the machine on its front and gently tap the old catch out with a flat end screwdriver and a small hammer be carefull its very brittle
If your Dc07 is all floors it will have A clutch fitted this is easy to determine just stand in front of your machine look down at the left hand side there will be a coloured knob on the side e.g. blue.yellow,green,purple this will have a pointer on it which when you pull handle back to vacuum must move to drive position you can rotate it by hand if it is stuck in park position , If there is no belts broken the brushes will now turn. If they don’t the chances are one of the 2 belts have snapped. You will then need Manuals to help you repair the problem.
