    This happened to me as well. I got the brush bar back in, and now, every time I try to use it on the "carpet" setting, it makes a horrible noise. HELP!

Check that the brush bar is sitting into its proper washers at both sides of the Dyson model; sometimes it can fall out of its holding if the sole plate cover hasn't been put on properly. Also check that there is nothing obstructing the beater bar and the drive belt.
If this works, please rate.

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.

Dyson vacuum cleaner-brush bar is frozen


Hi If your Dyson has a brush protection design - i.e. roller bar on the top of the hood on the left hand side then the DYson can't be repaired by you- serviceman or professional care can replace it.
However if the Dyson doesn't have the roller bar on top of the hood, flip the machine over so that the beater brush is facing upwards, locate three/four screw heads that can be undone with a coin and remove the sole plate assembly. This should give you a clean view of the brush bar, drive belt and dirt channel. Ensure everything is clean espcially if the brush bar has lots of hair or threads tightly corded around. Then locate the drive belt and check to see if it has snapped. Grasp the beater bar gently upwards and the belt and brush can then be removed. Fit a new belt on carefully and check the tension as it will be tight.

Kenmore Elegance Vacuum cleaner - power bar not working


The problem almost certainly is that the axle of the brush in your power bar has dirt/fluff in it that is preventing the belt from turning it so that the fuse in the power bar clicks off after 2 or 3 seconds. It is fairly easy to fix. All you will need is a Phillips screwdriver and about 15 minutes. Follow the following steps

1. With the power bar disconnected from the vacuum, turn it upside down and you will see two inset screws at the rear side of the base of the power bar. Unscrew these two screws using your Phillips screwdriver.

2. With the power bar in the same position unlatch the two plastic tabs at the rear of the power par. [It may be useful to flip up the metal bar that you see on the base to use as a handle] On each side of the base you will see an arrow saying insert screwdriver here to release. Insert a screwdriver and lever the plastic of the base slightly apart from the plastic of the side. When you have done this for both sides the base should lift off.

3. Now lift the brush including the two end pieces straight up. It should just slide up. You will need to unhook the drive belt from the brush as you lift it out.

4.Pull of each end piece and clean the dust, lint, hair off the end piece and from inside the end of the brush.

5.Once clean, reinstall the end pieces on the brush. Hook the belt back over the brush to its original position and slide the brush back into the power bar.

6. Reinstall the base by hooking the tabs from the front of the base into the small openings on the power bar.then push the base down until it clicks back into place and the tabs are back in their original position. Reinstall the two screws you removed earlier.

7. The power bar should now work. Good luck.

Correct position of beater bar on a Dyson DC14?


I had the same problem. I removed the brush from the machine. The brush should move freely when removed. If it doesn't move freely, pull the ends from the brush, both ends come off(one will have a rod fixed to it). I would suggest you clean the ends and the inside of where the ends sit on the brush. I applied a little grease on both end housings(inside end housing) if no grease available try washing up liquid. Put the brush ends back on the brush. I then spun the brush to check that it moved freely. It should move freely, if it does fit it back on the machine and it should be silent. If you cant get it to move freely I suggest a replacement brush. Tip: I used a blunt knife and placed it through the belt to avoid removal of the belt. Good luck. Cheers Jason

Dyson DC14 Animal Vacuum - terrible loud noise


What I found was that it is the roller brush. If you are willing to get a little dirty and do it yourself, there is the roller brush that most likely needs to be cleaned. After a little tinkering of my own, the roller brush can be slipped out or just shift it out of place to clean it. There are two ends to the roller brush and the brush itself. Of you twist the two ends until the come apart you would probably find a lot of hair and other long strand items wrapped around the rod that goes through the brush. Once you clean that out it should work like new. If that does not work then it is probably the clutch which is what the belt around the roller brush is connected to. Hope this helps, it is a simple solution.
