SOURCE: My Dyson Animal 14 beater brush will not turn.

It MAY be a clutch issue. I had a similar problem with my DC07 Animal recently a posted a solution elsewhere on this site, but here's the summary. To reset the clutch on my model, recline the vacuum, turn it on it's side and slowly change the carpet/bare floor knob from one setting to the other about 6 times. This apparently reset the clutch and now it works fine. You may also wish to call DYSON. They're very helpful and walk you through troubleshooting before recommending servicing. Their number is 1-866-693-9766. They'll need your model and serial number (located on bottom of uinit).

SOURCE: Dyson Animal 17 - brush stopped turning

The belt will stop itself from spinning if you accidentally picked up a shoestring or vacuumed the edged of a carpet and the carpet got caught. To have the brush spinning again, simply step on the front of the machine, pull back the handle, turn the machine on with the red power button and press the gray button next to the red button - that's the ON/OFF button for the brushbar. If it doesn't spin, press and hold the button down for 10 seconds. If it still doesn't work, call the Dyson helpline, they'll have you open up the cleaner and inspect the belt and brushbar motor and if all else fails, they'll refer you to a local repair dealer in your area to fix it.

SOURCE: Dyson DC14 Brush Bar won't turn

You don't need to take it for repairs, I just corrected the same problem on the phone with a tech. Have the head on your lap, make sure the end nearest the little belt has the rounded side of the bar facing you. The squared off end faces towards the machine. Place your left hand pointy finger under the bar (the 2 inch bar next to the little belt) and lift up, while finessing the loose end of the bar into place, with the rounded part still facing you. Then it sort of snaps into place. Now, replace the face plate. In the upright mode, starting at the carpet dial, switch the dial back and forth between carpet and bare floor, ten times. (the tech actually referred to this as re-setting the vac. LOL) Plug the vac in, incline the hand, and start. It should work. It didn't for me the first time and made a horrible sound. That meant I had to go and repeat the process again, but lo and behold, IT WORKED! When in doubt, call the tech and don't let them get away from you; have them stay on the line until the problem is resolved.

You can't change the belt. There is a factory tool that is needed to do it.

This is over a year too late, but perhaps this will help other people in your situation. Here is how the switch assembly should go together:

Dyson DC25 brush won't spin when touching the floor. If I lift it off the floor it spins, once it touches the floor it stops. Any idea what the problem is?


I can think of three things that could be wrong.

The easiest one is that the brush has hair and fluff wrapped around its bearing. This happened to me and was causing a burning rubber smell. Turn it over and remove the base plate. Lift the belt by putting a piece of cord under it and slide the brush out. Remove one end of the brush and slide the spindle out. Clean all the hair out and reassemble.

The internal drive belt is worn, or the nylon bush that it runs on.

The clutch is worn out.

The last two are not as easy to fix as the main drive belt is enclosed in the centre of the clutch. There are videos though that show you the process. Have a read and a watch, but try my first tip first.

    I would like to remove the clear cover over the brush bar on my Dyson DC-28 so that I can clean it. It's filthy and I cannot clean it with the brush bar in place. Is it possible to do this myself?


    Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

    DC28's cleaner head is a complex assembly which is not engineered to be dismantled. We'd advise against attempting this - any damage caused would not be covered under your Dyson warranty.

    If you'd like some guidance on maintaining your DC28, please email askdysonUS@dyson.com and someone will be in touch as soon as possible.

    I've never seen a Dyson with a "medal". For that matter, I've never seen a Dyson with any metal parts either, except the screws.
    You should take it to a qualified vacuum repair shop to make sure the parts aren't necessary before running it again, just in case.

    Dyson DC 25 Dyson Ball animal. The bottom brush is not rotating. I detached as and reattached as the manual suggested. Help Thank you very much


    Two things you can do. 1- Remove the brush as if you were going to change the drive belt for it. Clean the brush as best you can and spray some WD40 on the hard rubber/plastic pieces at both ends of the brush. Rotate the pieces to work the WD40 into the space between the pieces and the brush axle. 2- If you have one available, as long as the brush is off, change the belt.
    This should get your unit back in operation. If you find this solution helpful, I would appreciate a Thumbs Up from you. Thank you. Paul

    The brush bar on my Dyson DC17 stopped turning.


    If this model has a brush control - i.e a roller at the side of the model which controls brush to spin or not, then its a protected brush model - therefore even if the drive belt is intact the Dyson would have to be repaired by a service personnel or professional. The brush protection isn't able to be taken apart and sounds like it may well have slipped off due to tension.

    If you have animals get rid of the dyson and go to a vacuum that has a metal brushroll and better airflow. There is no fix on the dyson they just are not good on hair of any kind.

    Suction loss on dyson animal


    Hi.

    Keep the axe on hold try this first.


    Ok first thing to do is remove & clean the 2 piece premotor filter or purchase new.

    Now remove soleplate from bottom of machine to do this rotate the 3 plastic screws to unlock position. Lift sole plate off now remove any blockagers or fluff that may be built up over the brush roller.
    Remove hair from brush roll using scissors.

    Check short clear hose for blockages & any damage rips or tares if it is damaged purchase new hose.

    Now look at belts & rotate brush roller it should turn relatively easy if it is difficult to turn by hand remove the brush roller & pull off the end caps the axle will come out with one of the caps.
    Check the roller bearings clean away dust build up replace end caps & axle spin roller holding on to end cap if freely to spin refit back on to machine.

    If its stiff to rotate you will need new roller.

    Now pull off the 2 inspection ports check them for bits of paper etc especialy the (U) shaped port at bottom rear of machine this can contain pens pencills stones all sorts of items that hinder the suction.

    Now check the long flexi hose & metal wand for any obstructions.

    If after all this machine is still not working correctly go to this site http://dysonmanuals.llc.nu/

    On this site you will find Dyson service manuals covering poor suction, clutch,motor, etc.

    My dyson is making a loud horrible noise


    Hi.

    Check the brush roller can be moved by hand & that it is not snagging on something.
    If it is difficult to rotate remove sole plate by turning the 3 plastic screws to unlock position lift plate off & clean brush roller & check you can turn it after this.
    If brush roller is free to rotate the chances are the clutch is faulty & will need to be replaced.
    Go to this site http://dysonmanuals.llc.nu/
    It has manuals that cover clutch replacing on all Dyson models.
