If this is a Dyson with a protected belt that can't be replaced then it will have to be sent out to Dyson or get a Dyson servicepersonnel to check it over - protected belt motors are difficult to fix by yourself. If its clicking all the time, then it means the belt has to be replaced. In the mean time check that there are no obstructions on the beater bar and behind it and also check that the brush stop roller at the top of the hood is in the right position. It should move automatically when the handle is swung down in normal operation.

The beater bar is making a loud noise, and the dog hair is wrapping around the bar. Why would that be happening?


You probably have dirt or garbage wrapped around your beater bar. Loose carpet strings as well as pet hair will do this. If you see dog hair on the carpet its best to pick it up with your fingers as it will make a mess of a vac. Check your drive belt as it could be on its last legs as well causing the loud noise. Probably should be taken apart and belt replaced and a good cleaning as well. You should give a good cleaning once a year.

Beater bar making a loud noise


Our DC33 was making the same ratcheting sound immediately upon placing the cleaner/brush head on the carpet. We carefully pulled the beater/brush bar out of the vacuum. Once removed, we pulled the black plastic end nearest the belt off of the center rod. We discovered hair wrapped around each end of the center rod. After the hair was removed and the clean/brush bar was re-installed, the vacuum ran flawlessly. Hope it works as well for you as it did for us.

Belt is broken. Not sure how to replace


1. Get a long screw driver (probably phillips head) a strip of tape.
2. Look around underneath your vac for screws... look carefully because sometimes they are sneaky and hidden in weird areas like under the wheels, etc.
3. Take screws out stick them in order on tape turned upwards. (remember how you took them out.)
4. Gently remove the bottom cover.
5. Clean and remove debris, hair, dust bunnies, rocks... whatever.
6. Determine where the belt goes, disengage the beater bar on that side (may need to unscrew something) Belt on beater bar gears. Other end of belt on motor end... then stretch belt with beater bar until it fits back in it's place and replace any screws, etc.
7. Make sure the belt is seated properly.
8. replace cover, screws... test.**

** sometimes belts require that you put a twist in them so it can transition from the motor's direction to the beater bar's direction... if you twist the wrong way... the beater bar will spit dirt out the front of the vac.. (it's bulldozing it) In that case remove cover and twist the belt the other way.

Good luck.

My Dyson started making a loud noise when in "carpet" mode. After reading a ton of forums I thought it was the clutch assembly. Got a new one on eBay for a great price. Somewhat hard to replace, but thanks to this YouTube video, I was able to get it in: http://www.ezvacuum.com/dyson-dc07dc14-clutch-assembly-90025204-genuine-p-1636.html

HOWEVER this did not resolve the issue. I realized the beater bar was not spinning or was slipping. I thought I cleaned it all out but realized you need to take the beater bar out and pop the end cap and clean out the INSIDE of the beater bar (tons of lint and cat hair). I additionally sprayed WD40 in there.

It spins great now and in the end I think that's all I had to do was clean out the cat hair build up inside the beater bar. But now I have a new clutch & belts too. Hopefully won't have issues anytime soon.

The beater bar won't spin


Even though the belt is intact it can still be stretched and if it is it won't turn the brush roll when it's on the carpet. Here is a link to the belt you need and to a manual you can view:

Hoover makes terrible screaching sound when using upright.


It's most likely the bushings/bearings in the beater bar (roller). The beater bar cover is fairly easy to remove -- take it off and investigate. Could be that the roller only needs lubricating on the ends. Also, check the belt to see if it's intact or damaged.

Clean area thoroughly.

If this is not the problem, please, let me know.

Power bar makes loud groweling sound when turning?


Ours has been doing the same thing...the beater bar end plates, black thins, and the little groove area they go into are worn of the front and rear surfaces. You could buy a new beater bar but the wear on the housing would require quite a bit of work to replace that hole piece.

You will also notice that the belt is loose due to this wear.

Solution....duct tape to the rescue!

I took out the beater bar and took a strip of duct tape about 1-1½ inches long and folded that over to be a long narrow pad that fits in the groove that the beater bars end plate slides into...the groove to the rear of the beater bar.

Then I took a piece of duct tape and taped the little pad/shim I made to the rear edge of the beater bar so the pad will be in the groove when the bar is installed.

Put the bar back in carefully and no more noise and the belt is now tight again.

The fact that these 2 parts wear on each other and this affects the tension of the belt is what causes the noise...the sloppy belt will get so bad it will start jumping over the teeth and soon after it will break.

My wife was impressed...hope it works for you too...

Would make sense to make a more permanent solution but I just did this a couple days ago and we have vacuum the whole 2500 sq. ft. house with no extra noise...I have time to figure out better...maybe a harder plastic cut to fit in there...

Ratchet noise, beater will not turn, belt not broken, in carpet mode the Dyson d07 makes huge ratchet noise and the belt will not turn the beater brush.


Ok, so I had the same ratching noise and took the advice of many sites directing me to clean the brush. But like most I cleaned the brush and the noise continues and the brush does not spin. Reluctant to take it to get serviced I dug a little deeper and now it works just fine. This is what you need to do as removing any hair from just the brush part will not be enough.
Remove the entire brush bar from the bottom of the Dyson, this means pulling the bar out of the drive belt. This is not to difficult just use a little muscle as the belt will stretch. Once the bar is out grasp hold of the two plastic end caps on the brush bar which the brush bar actual spins in. These two caps are connected by a slim metal rod which runs through the brush bar. Place one hand on each side and begin to twist and pull until one of the caps comes off. Once the cap is off of the one side you can pull the other cap from the other side through the brush bar as this cap will be the one attached to the slim bar I mentioned above. If like mine you will see a ton of hair wrapped around these caps and inside the ends of the brush bar. Clean them out as best as possible.
After you clean it out, run the cap with the rod back through the brush bar, attach the other cap and twist and push together. Make sure the caps lineup which each other just like they were when you pulled it out. You'll notice how much more freely the brush bar spins between the two caps then before you cleaned it. Now, pull on the drive belt and feed the brush bar back through and attach as it was to begin with. This did the trick for me.
