Cleaning The Brush Head

I need to figure out how to clean the brush head. Right in the "window" on the brush head, it's collecting dirt on the sides. Does anyone know how to fix this problem without breaking the window? It doesn't come off very easily and I know someone who tried to remove it on an older model and the window broke.

I got pretty good results this way (and mine was trashed): Hot water first. Dry the exterior enough to tape the suction end with duct or electrical tape to get a good seal. fill from the other end with bleach. Shake it around and then let it sit in the sink full of bleach for a few minutes. Then remove tape and flush with hot water. The sides of the window may still have debris, hair, or mildew left over. With hot water running, I would alternately add water, and tap the whole attachment against the side of the sink to loosen it up. I kept doing that until i was happy with the results.

The window on the attachment of your Little Green isn't removable for cleaning. We suggest running the attachment under hot tap water, soak in hot tap water, or use a pipe cleaner to remove the dirt.

Brush head will not spin. Canister is completely clean yet no rotation to be seen.


If cleaning the brush bar really well doesn't solve it you may want to replace the filters. If that doesn't work you may need to replace the brush head.

The ends may be clogged with debris. You will have to remove the brush roller and remove one end cap to disassemble the roller for cleaning.

Brush stopped spinning.


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your DC25. I'm surprised to hear the drive spindle has broken in this way - this can be caused by excessive friction, which may occur if the brush bar isn't kept free of threads or hair. We do recommend checking the brush bar regularly and removing any debris - the clear brush housing should make it easy to see when it needs cleaning. The video attached shows the correct way to do this.

Our experts will be happy to take some further details to confirm whether or not a replacement head is covered under the terms of our 5-year warranty, and assist you with ordering the correct replacement part if needed. If you can email your serial number and contact details to us at askdysonUS@dyson.com, someone will be in touch as soon as possible.

We'll look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,

Jack

My Power head on my Dyson Animal DC39 will not stay spinning. Suction Issue?


There should be a red insert on the right-hand side on the cylindrical bulge behind the brush cylinder. Check that this is moving when you push the button. The red insert should stay pushed in for the brush to rotate. The insert moves in an out as well as rotates in order to lock in the 'in' position. Mine is a little sticky on the rotation and I need to shake the brush head a little in order to get it to rotate and lock.

Head of dc08 not working


please take a moment to comment of give it a thumbs up.

I work as a technition for vacuumspot.com.au & nelsonvacuums.com.au fixing vacuum cleaners. It is a common problem for turbine or turbo heads to slow down or stop altogether. I'll show you how to look after them and avoid costly replacement.

1b9030c.jpg

Start by turning the head over. I have marked the 3 points you need to undo to take off the base plate. Simply twist the 2 knobs and slide other catch in the centre of the head. The base plate should now lift off quite easily.



526fc77.jpg
Have a good look in the spot where I have marked it is very common for dirt and fluff to stick to the sides of the rubber part in the middle. This can reduce the suction at the head and reduse cleaning effiency.



d1529e5.jpg
Now you have to pull the brushes out to the sides, they should come off easily. Clean really well around the shaft pay particular attention to any hair wound around the small gap marked. Anything caught here gradually works it's way to the bearing which sits just inside the housing here. If the bearing gets worn you have to replace the entire head as there are no spare parts for this tool. :(

DO NOT try and put a lubricant on the shaft, it will work for a short time but in the longer term it will only attract dust to the bearing.

This part is easy, just tap out the the dirt from inside the brushes. If you have another vacuum handy this will work well too. An air compressor will do the best job but make sure you direct it away from yourself.

Give the base plate a basic clean, there is normally not a lot of stuff here but if you get dirt caught around the edges it can affect haw well the plate seals to the rest of the head. One thing to take particular not of is the rubber seal that goes around the edge. It often gets dislodged, just poke it back in or if you have gasket adhesive put a small amount in the groove to hold it in place.



673d8b1.jpg
Now check the filter on the side. You only have to give it a wipe with your finger or a dry cloth to keep it clean.
There you have it all done. Simply pop the brushes back on making sure you put them on the side they came off. There is a little arrow marked on the brushes and centre of the head if you forget. Then put the baseplate back on and fix the catches back in place.
If you do this every month or two your turbine head will spin at max speed all the time and last longer too!.
Hope this helped you and feel free to leave a comment, I love feedback .

Have a power brush and cannot get the brush out to clean. I've taken off the main cover, but the brush is held in by a bracket. I can't take off the main cover as I don't have the right kind of...


I have a Miele STB-205-3 Turbobrush. After opening the brush cover using a quarter, I use a T-7 torx screw driver (shaped like star of David) to remove the main cover that is held by 4 screws.

There are 2 more screws holding the fan housing. After unscrewing them, you can take the whole thing apart and clean it. Make sure you clean all rotating parts as they collect a lot of hair, dust, etc,

The brushes won't turn, and cleaning the filter (as suggested in the owner's manual) doesn't help.


Hi ken wright.
Remove the bottom of the head of the vacuum...remove the roller brush assembly.
Clean the assembly...remove the end caps and clear all hair,strings,etc from the end cap and rotating brush head.
After cleaning the brush head and bearings, lube the bearings with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in 1 oil.
Check your belt condition.
Reassemble and you should be good to go

I starts and tehn stops and beeps three times. I can start it aain and it will run but then it does the same thing'


Hi,

TYhe iRobot Roomba has different model designations. Here is a webpage with a list of what the beeps mean in the 400 series. I am thinking that is what you have. 3 beeps means the dirt cup is dirty, filters are dirty, or debris in collecting and it needs to be cleaned.

Here is the webpage: http://uksupport.irobot.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1047/kw/iRobot%20Roomba%20Discovery%20SE%20Bagless%20Robotic%204200%20series%20Vacuum%20beeps%203%20times/related/1

Hope this helps. If it does, I would appreciate a vote. Thanks,

Good day, I have a EN Vision Dirt Devil upright, 12 amp, wide 15" nozzle. My vacume is blowing out insead of sucking up the dirt from the carpet. Can you help me? What should I do? Thank you...


It's probably the brush "kicking" the dirt out, rather than it being blown out. This happens if there's a clog in the airflow system somewhere. This could be anywhere from the power head above the brush to the tank where the hose connects.
1. Detach hose at both ends. Drop a coin in one end, lift that end up until coin falls out the other end. If it doesn't, there's a blockage that needs to be cleared. You may be able to do this by using a broom handle to push the clog through. Push the broom handle through the power head end.
2. With the hose detached, check the power head connection for blockages. Drop the coin in and see if it drops through. If not, use a wooden spoon handle, or similar blunt object to push the clog back toward the brush, then pull or vacuum it out.
3. Check the filter and make sure it's clean,
4. Remove the dirt catcher and check bottom of holder right above motor. There's a screen here to prevent debris from getting to the motor. Clear any dirt and debris from it.

Try the vacuum and see it this has helped.
