Question about Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
DYSON DC 07 MOTOR AND VACUUM OK. BRUSH BAR, CLEAN OF HAIR, DOESNT TURN EVEN WHEN ON CARPET-SURFACE WHERE IT IS SUPPOSED TO KICK IN DUE TO INCREASED VACUUM IN THAT CHAMBER. (OWNER MANUAL SAYS HARD FLOOR DOESNT ALLOW BRUSH TURNING)I ASSUME STRONGER VACUUM AT VAC-HEAD CAUSES AN IMPELLER TO DRIVE BELT AS THERE IS NO SEPERATE BAR-DRIVE MOTOR. HAND ROTATING THE BELTED BRUSH BAR HAS SOME FRICTION RESISTANCE SINCE IT ISNT A BALLBEARING DEVICE. IS THERE TOO MUCH TURNING FRICTION AT BRUSH BAR END BEARING? I AM MECHANICALLY INCLINED AND WISH TO SEE INTERIOR OF BRUSH BAR BELT DRIVE MECHANISM. IS THERE A PARTS EXPLODED VIEW AND DISASSEMBLY PROCEEDURE TO REPLACE BELT? THAT WILL AID ME TO SEE AND FIX THE PROBLEM.
Stand vacuum up and with it plugged in. Rotate knob between carpet and bare floor and back 5 times leaving it on carpet when finished. Rotate vacuum back from upright position and lay vacuum on the floor, rotating it onto its side. Turn vacuum on.

The user who mentioned that the factory said to turn the carpet/bare floor knob five times was spot on for me. Mine was stuck on "bare floor", which I hadn't noticed before, and flipping the knob back and forth a few times got it back on track. Simple!

The ratcheting sound is a warning letting you know the brush is not turning. It is basically the sound of the clutch slipping. It can happen when you **** up an area rug or some other obstruction. However, over time, dush and hair will build up under the brush spindle end caps causing enough friction to make the clutch slip. To fix this, remove the brush cover. Lift out the end of the brush assembly on the far side from the belt. Pull the end cap. This end cap is securred to the metal spindle, and pulling it will pull out the spindle from the center of the brush. Clean the end cap to get all the matted dust out and also clean out the end of the brush cavity where the spindle was inserted being careful to not let the matted dust fall into the spindle hole. Then clean the other end cap. Reinsert the spindle and assembly the end caps such that you put the assembled brush unit back into the vacuum. You'll notice that although the brush seemed to spin freely by hand before, not that it is cleaned it really rotates by hand with ease. Problem solved.

Solution #6 is exactly it. Once I removed that cap I saw that there was 3 years of dust buildup in between the teeth of the gear, making it so the teeth were not grabbing and moving the gear. Once I cleaned that out it spun as if it were brand new.. You saved us $300 on a new one.. Mucho Thanks.

I have the 2003 Yellow dyson... The brush hasn't been working for some time now, but I just noticed it yesterday... When I noticed the "fluffed" carpet again, I was pretty excited, THEN it made the "ratcheting" sound. I turned it off, manually spun the brush, and then it worked for about another 2 minutes... now, I can't have it on the carpet mode, because i twill not stop ratcheting. I puled the brush off, cleaned it, and re-installed it, correctly. I justy got new capret, any suggestions?

My brush was not spinning. I did all of the suggested things to fix it with no results. I called Dyson and these were their instructions. Put cleaner upright. Turn vac/floor knob (bottom right 5 times back and forth from vac to floor, vac to floor, etc. Put vac on left side on floor and turn on. My brush worked again. Amazing!
