Question about Dyson DC08 Cylinder Bagless Canister Cyclonic Vacuum

1 Answer

Noise My Dyson DC08 is making a loud, rough, vibration/noise that seems to be coming from the from the rotating brush housing. I replaced the old belt which was several years old and slipping. When I run the motor with the new belt removed the machine sounds normal. The bearings on the rotating brush seem to be running smoothly when turned by hand both when out of the brush holder and when installed in the machine. I can't find anything rubbing on the belt or rotating brush. I applied a bit of WD40 to the brush bearings to see if it would make any difference, but it didn't. Any clues?

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.
I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your Dyson vacuum. From your description, it sounds like the model number you've supplied may not be correct, as DC08 is a cylinder vacuum which doesn't use a belt-driven brush bar. So we can confirm exactly which model you own and take you through some quick diagnostic checks, I'd encourage you to contact us directly. You can reach our experts by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).
We'll look forward to hearing from you.
Best wishes,

SOURCE: rotating brush will not turn on my Dyson DC07

Yes I had the same problem on my animal Dysom. There is a button on the top of the dysom that turns the cacuum on. Right beside that button is another one that turns on and off the brush!!! Good luck!!! I accidently one day bumped that button and couldn't get my brush to work but after troubleshooting it, that was my solution.

SOURCE: The brush bar on my Dyson DC17 stopped turning.

If this model has a brush control - i.e a roller at the side of the model which controls brush to spin or not, then its a protected brush model - therefore even if the drive belt is intact the Dyson would have to be repaired by a service personnel or professional. The brush protection isn't able to be taken apart and sounds like it may well have slipped off due to tension.

My Hoover makes louder noise when the brushroll is on. I just cleaned but no result.


What kind of Hoover is this? There are a few things that will cause excessive noise and vibration such as a worn belt, the wrong belt, damaged end caps, damaged brush roll housing and worn bearings. Inspect the brush roll area. Remove the belt, if you have a spare, check the size. If it's more than 6 months old, replace the belt. Spin the brush roll in the housing, does it spin free or hesitate or not turn at all? If it spins with effort there could be debris under the end caps; if one end cap will not turn there is enough debris to cause the end cap to internally melt to the roller. If you cannot turn the brush roll by hand, replacement is your best solution. You should also inspect the housing where the roller spins, specifically where the end caps sit; look for damage to the slots in the plastic, it the roller will not sit snug this could cause enough vibration to make the sound you're hearing.

Just purchased a reconditioned model. Makes a ton of noise and the bottom brush doesn't seem to turn like in my old Oreck. Does that indicate it needs a new belt?


Your Dyson does have a belt but its one that cant be replaced it is called a clutch assy. if your roller brush isnt spinning then it could be that you dont have the purple knob on the left hand side if your facing the vacuum to the carpet setting. if you do have it on the carpet setting and its still not spinning then your clutch need to be replaced.
dyson roller brushes donot rotate as fast as Oreck roller brushes. in fact they are rotate at about half the speed. so keep that in mind.

My dyson is making a loud scweeky noise


www.sewvac.com Remove the bottom plate and disconnect the belt.If it still makes the noise it is the lower motor that drives the brush that is bad.If it dosent make the noise try cleaning off the hair and debris from the motor pully and replace the belt you will need to take the brush out to do this.While the brush is out check the ends for binding they should turn smoothly with very little resistance also check the area the belt rides on the brush and make sure there is no dirt buildup in the area the cogs of the belt ride in. If it is the lower motor and is less than 5 years old call Dyson and they will generate a work order for a service provider.It may very well be under warranty. !-866-693-9766

My Dyson Animal has good suction and works fine for actually picking up dirt, but when I use the vacuum with the roller, I hear a grinding/rumbling noise. Its only when I use the vacuum with the brush...


Trace the path of the suction into the tank and see if there is anything loose or ingested. Also, remove the brush and clean as best you can. Perhaps there is something caught in it. Lubricate where it makes sense with some WD40.

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:

My dyson D17 is making an incredibly loud noise, like grinding, when the bottom brush rotates.


Remove the bottom cover plate and rotate the brush by hand. Look for things that make noise like stones caught in the brush path, bad brush bearings, bad drive belt.
