It is not the motor, You have to remove the top cover.To clean it out if the belt is going to slow Some thing is jam in there. There are screws that are probaby on the bottom or top of the unit to hold it together that have to be removed to get it apart.

Dyson DC17 Loud Noise when using brush bar. I have replaced the brush bar and belt with new ones. No load screaming until using brush bar. Pretty sure its the brush bar motor bearings. Can these be...


Hi Ed,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your DC17. It's worth checking that the new brush bar and belt are fitted correctly, and rotate freely. The video attached may help in making sure it's correctly aligned.

It's worth checking that no threads, hair or debris are caught within the machine. The brush bar motor itself isn't designed to be serviced, and we would advise against attempting this in case further damage is caused. I'd encourage you to email our experts directly with our contact details - you can reach them at askdysonUS@dyson.com. Someone will be in touch as soon as possible to take you through some diagnostic checks to confirm what's causing the noise.

If you'd prefer to call our customer Helpline, you can reach us on 1-866-693-9766.

Best wishes,

Jack

Burnt rubber smell when vacuuming


This could be a few things:

A. If your model has a floor selector switch (Bare floor/tools - Carpet) your clutch could be worn. (there is a rubber clutch pad between your cam and roller shell) - Fix would be to replace the clutch pad and belt.

B. If you don't have one of the above models, your belt could be stretched. The belt slipping could cause a rubber burning smell. Fix - Change belt.

C. Have you got any new carpet you are vacuuming or have you moved? Some of the newer style frieze carpets can cause burning rubber smell. The fibers of the carpet are longer and cause the brush to slow down causing the belt to burn. (Imagine brushing long hair with a thick brush, the hair easily gets tangled in the brush, same effect with this carpet.) Some of the newer rugs can do this as well. Some newer carpets with the thicker felt backing and/or the "pet padding" under the carpet can too. it doesn't allow enough air to flow through causing the cleaner head to seal itself to the carpet causing a burning smell. The fix is Move to another home, replace your carpets or replace your vacuum. The vacuum is the cheaper option but be cautious as most vacuums now do this with these carpets. We have had really good response from customers using the Simplicity Tandem Air models, (Synchrony and Synergy models.)

Hope this helps, if you need to talk further feel free to contact me.

The brush bar isn't going round ?


your problem seems to be the belt has snapped. Underneath the the hover there is a rubber belt that connects around the brush bar and around the motor, this belt will be broken. They can purchased from any hoover shop for a couple of pounds.

A burning smell when in use


Martinsivyer:

Turn the machine upside-down and see if you can turn the beater/brush bar with your hand. You should see the brush turning and feel the resistance from the motor. The brush/beater bar may be binding, and what you are smelling is the motor shaft spinning against the rubber belt. You can remove the base plate and check the brush/beater bar with the belt disconnected. If the brush/beater bar is difficult to turn, you need to remove the brush/beater bar and clean the bearings at each end, Remove any threads that are wound around the beater bar ends so that the bearings roll easily and smoothly. Check to see that your machine is not set too low for the surface that you are bacuuming. While you have the belt disconnected, check thi inside surface to see if the motor shaft has been spinning against the belt, you'll see the damage to the inside circumfrence of the belt.

Motor runs, brush won't turn, burning rubber smell


Easy to fix. The burning rubber smell is hair in the roller against the belt! Congrats, you have a healthy vacuum, you are lucky! Unplug the vacuum, remove the screws that cover the belt and roller brush. If you are nervous, take pictures with a cell phone or digital camera as you go for re-assembly. ok, pull the long roller out of it's slot and out of the vacuum. cut all hair off the roller and carefully move the belt from side to side to do the same. If the belt slips off, it slips back on easily. If the area is too tight for fingers guide it back on with any long thin wooden object. You can squeeze the belt to narrow it and slide it back over the thin metal rod that spins it from the motor. Slide the roller through the belt and back into it's slots. If it won't slide back on, turn it a quarter turn. Repeat till it does slide back into place. Put the face plate back on-tighten screws, flip it over, plug itr in and it should work!

When operating smells like burnt rubber. Roller brush stopped turning.


Hi leanneaj...
Your problem is caused by hair,strings,etc getting around the beater bar at the ends of the roller where the bearings are and causes it to sease up.
The smell you smelled was rubber burning, the rubber belt that operates the roller brush has burned into...broken.
You will have to remove your roller brush and clean, and oil and then reinstall it with a new belt

We have a Miele Silver Moon vacuum that isn't


Hi dear.There are two type of attachments for this vacuum cleaners to pick up the pets hair,fluff & so on.They call it"Turbo & Power Brush".Turbo brush operates with machines suction & Power one operates with small electric motor which is built in the unit.They work with the same prenciple.There is a belt drives the rotary brush.OK.there are two small yellow screw underneath the unit.Please undo them,take of the cover & clean the rotary brush,check for the belts tension.It should be enough tight to drive the brush.If not ask for spare part from Miele in your country.After cleaning please put it back in order.To test it,attached to the vacuum.Turn the power on for Turbo brush,as long as suction starts,brush should start turning too.For the Power one,there should be power button on the handle to turn it on & off.Press it.It should work.On both of the unit,brush should spin good & strong enough to do the job when it's attached the surface you are vacuuming.Check the brush after each use,cleaned if neccesary. I hope that helps.Thanks.

Brush will not turn


Assume that the belt is broken to the power brush /head. Did you happen to smell burning rubber or see small pieces of black rubber? Look in your manual for replacing power head/brushes belt! With the unit off , try turning the brushes by hand and clean them off of debris, etc., as well while there. See if you feel some tension or hear the motor moving inside, indication that the belt is still attrached and if it doesn't seem to have any resistance and you see small pieces of rubber and /or, the band/belt may have just broke from normal usage. WalMart sells most types or your local vacuum repair facility.. check the Yellow pages and let your fingers do the walking.. Good luck

My vacuum has good suction but i can hardly push it across my carpet. any answers????


is your brush roller turning,that would cause it to be hard to push .the brush roller helps it walk across the floor.if your brush roller isn't turning then your belt is broke or the brush itself siezed up.unplug the vacuum and try to turn the brush roller .if it turns real free then your belt is broke.before you replace the belt always clean the motor shaft ,the old rubber from the old belt melts onto the motor shaft .if you don't clean it your new belt won't last very long.please leave feedback

Hoover windtunnel - brushes spin fine when it's upside down but when it makes contact witht the carpet it stops completely. Is this the belts?


your belt is stretch out get a new belt.but before you put the new belt on clean the motor shaft .theres usually burnt rubber left on the shaft.if you don't clean it off the new belt won't last very long.you can use a fine piece of emery cloth to take the rubber off and back down to the polished finish on the shaft.and while your at it and you have the brush roller off clean it good.check the ends to make sure they turn freely.sometimes carpet strands get wrapped around the ends.those ends come off ,some unscrew and some just pull off
