On the bottom plate are 3 spots, one in the center and one at each corner, that need a flat head screw driver to loosen. turn left to unlock, this will remove the plate so you can clear the debris from the brush.

The roller stop rotating


Remove the brush assembly from the base unit and check the condition of the drive belt. Check the brush end bearings for wound-up thread, hair, and other debris. Place the brush back without the belt--it should spin freely. Reinstall the belt if it is in good condition and check for motor running of the brush. If it seems weak, replace the belt. Hope this helps!

My Dyson DC17 Animal brush roller makes noise when it is spinning but not when using the wand. The belt around the roller seems fine and it is not plugged. What else can I check for?


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

You may find it useful to remove the soleplate from the base of the machine and make sure that the brush bar is fitted correctly.

Once this is done, make sure there are no hairs or threads wrapped around the brush barm, particularly
at the ends.

With the soleplate removed you can also ensure that the brush bar and housing are free of blockages.

Once checked, re-fit the soleplate and test the machine.

I hope that this information is useful to you. If you need any further help or advice, contact one of our Ask Dyson experts on 1866MYDYSON.

Kind regards

My dyson DC17 makes a loud noise when i tip the handle down to make the brush spin on the floor?


Loud noises are usually caused by worn belts, unbalanced roller brush or debris in the roller brush. Check these things. Here is a link to the belt you need:

The brushes are not spinning. I get suction, but the brushes don't turn.


Your belt has probably broken. Here is a link to the belt you need:

Dyson DC17 Belt


And here is instructions on how to change it:
1. Loosen 3 screws from bottom plate using flathead screwdriver or coin edge and remove it.
2. Wiggle roller until it pulls straight out.
3. Squeeze new belt and loop it over metal drive gear (you'll easily see the gear).
4. Keeping belt on gear, insert edge of roller through belt and rotate the roller while pushing it through belt until it is inside the belt, then continue rotating roller and sliding it over until belt is in position over gears on roller.
5. Insert roller into slots on that it came out of, reattach bottom cover and its done.

How do you replace belt on brush?


Remove the plate on the bottom front of the vacuum by turning the plastic knobs on the plate with a nickel or screwdriver. Then pull out the brush bar and slide the belt over the brush bar and align it with the "cogged" portion of the brush bar. 
Slide the belt and brush bar up into the vacuum and over the small cog on the motor. You'll need to pull back the idler pulley which is the smooth metal cylinder next to the cog on the motor. Once everything is lined up push the brush bar into its slots and reinstall the bottom plastic plate onto the vacuum. Everything should be in good working order now!
