Dirt from the back of my machine

There seems to be dirt coming out from the back of my Dyson, it appears to be coming from the beater bar area. It seems to pick up the larger things, but as I said sends dirt out the back.. Any help will be appreciated.

I had the same symptom. Lay the cleaner on its side locate the rubber flap at the bottom of the rear grey channel. Get a piece of wire (I used an old curtain wire that has an hook)and go fishing. I got about 2 handfulls of old fibre followed by the dust when I turned it upright.

Handle on dc28 has been hard to put back since new but now won't move at all. Stuck in upright potion.


You DO NOT have to take your machine to a "certified technician" to fix
this problem. Stand behind your machine, lean
over and look at the front: Right in the center of the slit between the
machine and the beater bar head, you will see a black tab. Simply slide a
thin, flat-head screwdriver down and magically the machine will
release. NOW: once it\'s released, simply examine the area where your
screwdriver JUST slid down...see the dirt and gunk? DON\'T follow the
MANY suggestions of adding lubricant "which only works for a short
while" (by their own admission) WIPE AWAY THE DIRT AND GUNK and voila!
YOU are now a "certified technician" and you didn\'t have to sit through
any technical school to get there! You go girl!!!!!!!

Beater bar not spinning


Invest $20 in a replacement (see Amazon.com et alia); Dirt Devil beater bars have sorta-sealed bearings that burn out once wear puts enough particles in the works, and you'd have to replace and reseal bearings in there if you did get it open yourself.

There seems to be a lack of suction on the main unit(brushes). Its fine when using the pipe


There is a blockage in the neck where the power head connects to the machine.

Remove the base plate. Look behind the beater bar and you will see where the dirt enters the machine. There is likely something blocking the entry into the machine right at that junction. Simple fish it out and you are good to go.

Hope this helps.

Vacuum won't pick up any dirt - there's no roller marks when vacuuming carpet. Roller does turn and filters are clean.


Hi,

When you turn the roller, you should feel some resistance from the belt. Remove the base blate that surrounds the beater bar. Check the belt. Take care in removing the beater bar, so you can get it back in the same way it comes out. Clean the beater bar while you have the bottom open. If you remove the beater bar to replace the belt, take the time to inspect the cavity behind the beater bar where the vacuum picks up. That is where vacuums usually stop up. Reassemble the vacuum. If necessary, slip the belt over the motor shaft and then slide the roller undre the belt. Install the beater bar back in the sockets and replace the base plate.
Best regards,

HOW DO YOU CHANGE THE BELT ON A DIRT DEVIL VISION VACUUM CLEANER?


With the vacuum unplugged, turn the machine beater bar side up. Locate the clips or screws that hold the plate over the beater bar and remove the plate. The beater bar sits in sockets just inside. Be careful in removing it; take your time and note how it comes out...this will make reassembly easier. Clean the debris while you have tha bar off and remove any debris thet you see in the vacuum hose area behind the bar....The new belt slips over the motor shaft behind the beater bar (further up in the cavity behind the b/b), then you slip it back onto the beater bar as you place the bar back nto the sockets. Test your work by revolving the bar a bit to make sure that everything is back in place. Replace the plate.
Regards,

Beater brush won't spin but belt is intact and ok. Brush is clean and spins freely by hand.


For your beater brush to spin, you have to meet two conditions:
1) the vacuum cleaner has to be reclined (put your foot on the front and pull back on the handle).
2) The clutch actuator (the dial where you switch between BEAR FLOORS and CARPETS needs to be set to CARPETS).

If the brushbar/beater bar still doesn't spin after that, call the Dyson helpline, they will assist you. If you are saying that the brushbar isn't spinning because it is not picking up any dirt, you may have a loose internal hose, a blockage in the machine or the bristles on the brushbar are worn. Call the Dyson helpline for assistance.

No suction - Dyson vacuum


Hi If the Dyson is throwing out dirt at the back, it could be three possibilities:
1) The main floor head suction channel is blocked. Check the sole plate where the beater bar is, or if you have a cylinder/pull along model check the floor heads and main extension pipes.
2) Check all the inspection tubes especially the bottom part where the main handle hose is. Also check the filters are clean as well as the Cyclone shroud honeycombs are completely unclogged. Use of the upholstery brush is ideal for dust removal on the cyclones.
3) Check the main inspection areas on the Dyson as sometimes a back log of clogged dirt can get stuck. Also check the dust channel points when then bin is taken out.
Hope all this helps!
