Question about Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
I have a dyson dc17 animal- the beater bar motor got jammed and quit working- I cleaned all the hair and junk away from the belt, and drive area. The motor will now come on when the handle is lowered. Is there a fuse or a reset switch someplace that I can reset or replace, Or is the motor shot.
There is a reset button under the cover that houses the on/off switches. remove the handle/wand and look on the back (where the top of the hose sits) for 2 screws (its a torx/star head screw size t10 i believe). remove them and locate 4 small locking tabs that hold the switch cover to the frame of the vacuum. Depress them and pop the cover off (2 towards the top and 2 towards the bottom). Youll see 3 switches (2 square red buttons and one small cylindrical shaped one). Push the small red one (the one to the left if my memory serves me right). you should hear a click. if you do than the switch is reset. if not check all connections to all 3 switches. if you see nothing loose or not connected, you may need a new brushbar motor. try it

Well... not sure about this, but worth a shot. I did get one of these in for repair a while back, with exactly the same problem. The owner hadn't realized that there's an on/off switch for the brush motor. It's located on the front of the handle. Not sure, but it may be that this switch cuts off automatically if the motor gets overloaded, and needs to be reset manually. Try it!
