Question about Dyson Vacuums
Very little suction and the brush isn't turning
Check to make sure that the knob for carpet/ bare floor has not slipped, the brushroll will only turn when carpet is selected. The most likely culprit is a stretched belt on your clutch assembly; you have one tor the brushroll and one to the motor. These belts will stretch out though Dyson will not tell you this. Best remedy is to replace the clutch assembly with OEM # 900252-04. Dyson will sell the Brusholl belt but I suggest shopping arround to find someone willing to pull the clutch apart; to my knowlege Dyson will NOT sell the motor belt.

I had the same problem. Checked for obstructions, cleaned the filters, etc.
I took out the rubber belt and noticed that it was much more stretched than the newer black belt. I replaced it, and it made a 100 percent improvement on the suction.
Your vaccuum should have come with a postcard that allows you to mail in belts for new ones. You'll get two new ones in the mail, and they are free for life. Just keep mailing in the old broken or stretched out ones.
Hope that works!

I went to my local Sears store and the salesman there looked at my vacuum and was able to resolve the issue. There was a piece of wire that had been sucked into the machine that then blocked anything else from being vacuumed up.
Thanks for your help.

Check to see if the brush is turning when you have the vac on and the handel down 'of course keep your hands from that area when doing this ,you might have to lean the vac ,to see the resaults.
