Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

There are a number of reasons why your brush roller is not working properly. General maintenance to your vacuum is crucial and will help it work at peak performance.

First things first lets focus on the brush roller. Unplug the vacuum and turn it on its side. Look for any noticeable clumps of debris or hair strands that may be caught in the brush roller. Remove these obstructions, probably best to do so with a scissor if it's hair or long pieces of carpet fibers. After removing the debris try manually rotating the brush roller to uncover other hidden clogs. Another thing to take note of is the condition of the bristles on the roll itself. Are they loose or worn down? These are signs that your brush roller is in need of replacing.

While checking out your brush roll you might as well take a look at your vacuums belt. Your belt should be replaced about every three months. After regular usage, the belt will stretch out, lessening the tension on the brush roller. Lesser tension diminishes the brush roller's turn rate and speed. If the belt feels loose then it certainly is affecting your vacuums suction as well as your brush roll not moving at all.

SOURCE: DC 07 BRUSH BAR DOES NOT TURN BELT OK

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.

SOURCE: rotating brush will not turn on my Dyson DC07

Yes I had the same problem on my animal Dysom. There is a button on the top of the dysom that turns the cacuum on. Right beside that button is another one that turns on and off the brush!!! Good luck!!! I accidently one day bumped that button and couldn't get my brush to work but after troubleshooting it, that was my solution.

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: motorized brush bar not turning on Dyson Vacuum

Apparent common failure is that either the thin yellow and or blue motor drive wires that run from the LH side of the vacuum where the "control board" is located down into the hinge / ball area become stretched and then fray and eventually break. Happened to my Dyson twice. First repaired under warranty, second took about 20 minutes. You need a Torx screwdriver to remove the LH panel ( 4 screws) and also an access panel (2 screws) at the side of the ball which permits access to the blue / yellow wire connectors. I replaced with a new wire and connectors having fed the wires through the access hole making sure sure enough wire was available for the movement of the handle. Also ensure that when the covers are replaced they do not trap any wires underneath.

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.

Where is the reset button on the dc15


Hi Dion, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC15's cleaner head is protected by a sensor which shuts the brush bar off if something jams it. DC15 does not include a separate reset button. Instead, once you've checked the cleaner head for any obstructions, and removed any threads or hair from around the brush bar and end caps, the machine should reset automatically. Each step is shown in our video guide:

The brush bar will never rotate when the vacuum is standing upright, so make sure you recline your DC15 into the normal vacuuming position before testing it.

If you'd like further help after giving this a try, our experts are on hard to provide assistance. You can reach the Dyson Customer Helpline by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Hi Terry, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC15's brush bar is designed to shut off for protection if something jams it. Please follow the steps shown in the video attached to clear the brush bar and end caps of any threads or hair, and to check the cleaner head for obstructions. You should then be able to reset the machine.

Please note, the brush bar will never rotate when the machine is standing upright, so make sure you recline the machine into the normal vacuuming position when testing it.

If you'd like further advice after you've given this a try, please call the Dyson customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), or 1-877-397-6622 (CA).

Hi Wanda, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your DC15's cleaner head. It's worth following the steps shown in the Support video attached to help check there is nothing in the cleaner head that could be jamming the brush bar, stopping it from rotating freely.

If you can't see any obstructions, please give the Dyson customer Helpline a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), or 1-877-397-6622 (CA), to speak directly with our team of experts.

Dyson dc15 bagless upright. my brush bar is not working but if you use the hose it works .


http://www.espares.co.uk/datastore/ProductManuals/350256.pdf
Check the above link to see if it helps. It shows you how to break down the DC15 to check for issues. Also try inspecting the circuit board for loose wires. There have been several people who reported loose or burnt wires to be the culprit for the brush bar not working. The DC15 does not use a belt, but a motor that is control by the circuit board.

You can try calling their helpline at 866-MyDyson for further help

The head of the Dyson 25 has stopped rotating


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

It may be that the brush bar needs to be re-set. To do this, switch the machine off, press the brush bar on/off button once and then switch the machine back on. When lowered into the vacuuming position, the brush bar should start turning.

If it doesn't, please contact our Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Kind regards
Darran
