Make sure it's pushed it to the handle , if you turn it over and take the two screws out of sole plate you should see access to the belt

SOURCE: brush not turning

ez...there may be a second belt or the bearings in the beater are gummed up. Open up the area where the beater is. There should be a belt in there...if it is broken, you'll have to replace. Before you do...turn the beater by hand...if it turns hard, the bearings are jammed up with old grease or debris. You'll have to deal with that.

SOURCE: brushes not going round

The brushes on my dyson have stopped going round. I have checked it and they move freely by hand. The belt is intact. What could the problem be? The Hoover is about 10 to 12 years old.
My dyson is a dc04


I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
One of the main problems with vacuums are that the flat belts on the vacuums stretch and should be changed every 4 to 6 months or 3 or 4 times a year – you can tell by taking off the belt or belts on the vacuums and compare them to the old belts on the vacuum the new belts will fix inside of the old belts and you will be able to see the difference on how much they have stretched – if the belt is a geared belt – they stretch as well but should be changed about one a year – the cost is not that expensive and you cleaning will improve almost double – this also applies for the Dyson DC04 and the Hoover vacuum as well – some of the Hoover vacuums have two (2) belts and they both should be changed @ the same time.

SOURCE: Miele White Star SEB 204,

Yes, most likely the belt has stretch. Flat belts do this after a short time and need to be replaced when problems start with the brush roll not wanting to turn. Also check the brush roll, make sure that the ends turn freely, if not, then replace it also.

SOURCE: Hoover Elite Rewind belt part number , is this the correct one?

Yes, that is the correct belt. The full part number should be 38528040. This is the correct belt and should fit your U5509/U5507.

SOURCE: Need to replace belt on beater brush

If you press on either side of the raised top light cover it will come off. Then you will be able to see the light bulb and two screw heads. Remove the two screws and the top cover of the power brush will lift off and you will be able to access the belt. You can find this belt at www.vacbelts.com.

Dc35 brush head spins and stops


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

There are a number of reasons why your brush roller has stopped moving. 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.

Drive brushes not going round- sucks O.K


Hello Les,

Your brush roller is probably bad ( the roller that is driven by the belt). The bearings go bad over time and then cease. Typically the belt will break when the roller bearings cease so both will probably need to be replaced but both parts should be less than $20.00 total. Check the exploded diagram in your manual for the brush roller and belt part numbers.
See the link below for basic instructions:

Take Care,

How do i Change the belt


They are all pretty much the same..You should See four or so screws that hold the cover of the vac to the bottom where the beater brush is..once that is removed you will see the motor with a small round shaft and the beater brush that comes out. The belt stretches between the motor shaft and the beater bush pulley.. Once the belt is on make sure the beater brush is in place on both sides and replace the top..you should be good to go..good luck..

Beater bar not working


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

If the brush control has been switched off the brush bar won't go round when the vacuum cleaner is lowered into the vacuuming position. If this is in the correct position, we would recommend checking the brush bar and cleaner head for blockages as this can prevent the brush bar turning.

If none of the above resolves the problem, please contact our Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Many thanks

Install New Belt


Lift the headlight and rotate the thumb dial to release the carpet head. It will spin to the side. Rotate the square handle at the front of the vac fully to the left.
Remove the carpet head and open it from the bottom side. Observe which side had a little block below the LED belt indicator when you rotate the brush. The brush must go back in this way. The blocks at the end of the brush are color coded for height adjustment. Remove the brush, slide a genuine belt onto the center and close the bottom cover of the housing. make sure the brush spins freely, now look into the belt opening, round hole at the side. Using the square dial at the front of the head, rotate the hook into the belt to twist the belt and open it for installation onto the motor shaft.
Reinstall the head onto the vac, using the thumb dial to lock into place and rotate the square handle again . This will release the belt tension onto the motor shaft. Raise the vac up two knotches with the pedal before lower onto the carpet.

The brushes aren't spinning


The brushes are belt drive by a belt. The belt is probably broken. You can purchase a new belt at a local discount store and replace it. You won't find anything that looks like a pulley, it'll just be a bare round metal portion of the brush assembly that is located at one end. The motor end will look similar.

I have taken the brush heads off and pulled all the hair out of the small gap between the chrome shaft and the plastic gear housing. Then a small amount of 3-in-1 oil into that gap to lube the internals and just a little through the air intake on the side of the head to clean and lube the seals and it works like new. This lasts about 9 months under high use and the process takes roughly 10 minutes.

Replacing Belt


On the front of the power head is a knob with the KIRBY name on it. Rotate this knob in a counter clockwise direction and it will "lift" the belt off the motor spindle. Release the head lever, only one direction it will turn and remove the head. Turn the head over on its back, turn the KIRBY knob to release the old belt. Remove the brush guard by turning the two release fixtures. Remove the guard. Pry the brush out of the head. Remove the old belt. While the brush is out remove any build up of hair and lint off the ends that's where the bearings are. put a few drops of 3 in One oil on the ends. Put the new belt over the brush and re-install the brush into the head. the brush will go in only one way. With your finger pull the belt into the housing and rotate the KIRBY knob until the pawl inside grabs the belt. Re-install the brush guard by engaging the two metal pieces into the front of the head and pull down backwards over the head and rotate the holding clips back horizontal. re-install the powerhead on the machine, lock it in place and rotate the KIRBY knob clockwise. You should be all set!
