I would suggest you invert the vacuum and remove the plate covering the spinning brush assembly. You should check the belt located on one side of the spinner brush to see if it is worn or broken. Also remove anything wrapped around the brush that could be affecting it. Ensure the brush is free to rotate and seated correctly. If the belt is worn or broken, or the spinner brush is unable to spin, replacements are available from a licenced repair facility. I hope it helps! Good Luck!

I was having the same trouble and it was driving me nuts. I tried cleaning and it did not work. Then I tore the brush assembly off and looked up into where the little tooth gear is. I saw something that did not look right. There was a silver roller bearing laying down below the assembly. I got some tweezers and found it was not attached to any thing. I then cleaned out the pet hair and saw a spot where this roller goes that takes the slack out of the brush. It is a pain and takes alot of trying with pliers and prodding with a screw driver, but I got the roller back where it goes. It does not attach very solidly, but I put every thing back together and it works great so far. It is a definite design flaw. I found that you have to keep the main unit on the floor when the brush is running. Do not do stairs or pick it up and do couch cushions, that is when the bearing breaks loose. Dyson needs to figure out a better design for this. I was lucky to figure it out, but it is very hard to get to. Again never pick up the unit when the brushes are engaged.

Probably a hose clog. Check the hose on the back of the cannister. Most likely clogged where it attaches to allow debris into the cannister. If cannister is not filling up, that's a sure sign. To remove from top of back of cannister, just turn the ring on the end of the hose to release. Take it outside and push a long thin object through it to force out the clogged hair or debris. The motor is designed to shut off the vacuum cleaner for 30 minutes when this happens to avoid burning up your motor.
