I have a DC 37, it's 3 weeks old. The brush bar will not spin. It spins when initially turned on but stops after about 3-5 seconds. I have cleaned it but still does not work.

If the brush is spinning ok, and the belt isn't slipping, then probably the circuit breaker is bad, or the motor is causing the problem.

Does the power head motor stop, or does the brush roll stop. If it is the brush roll stopping, replace the belt and/or the brush roll. If it is the motor, you may need to clean out around the motor, it may not be getting enough air to cool causing it to overheat and stopping. That the brush roll plate off, take out the screw, and the top will come off, then you can check to see if cleaning is the answer, if not, the motor may be bad.

Hi its Darran at Dyson.

Simply switch the machine off and stand it upright. Press the brush bar on/off switch once and then turn the machine back on.

When you release the machine into the vacuuming position, the brush bar should start to turn again.

If you still having problems, please contact our Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Kind regards

If you've had the brush out to clean it you need to re-set the trip switch which is a red button at the right side of the brush simply press it in till it clicks.

Brush bar stops spinning


If cleaning debris from brush roll and nozzle housing doesn't solve the problem you may need a new PCB, if that doesn't solve it you may need a new power nozzle assembly. This is a difficult repair that should be performed by a qualified technician.

Dyson DC25 brush won't spin when touching the floor. If I lift it off the floor it spins, once it touches the floor it stops. Any idea what the problem is?


I can think of three things that could be wrong.

The easiest one is that the brush has hair and fluff wrapped around its bearing. This happened to me and was causing a burning rubber smell. Turn it over and remove the base plate. Lift the belt by putting a piece of cord under it and slide the brush out. Remove one end of the brush and slide the spindle out. Clean all the hair out and reassemble.

The internal drive belt is worn, or the nylon bush that it runs on.

The clutch is worn out.

The last two are not as easy to fix as the main drive belt is enclosed in the centre of the clutch. There are videos though that show you the process. Have a read and a watch, but try my first tip first.

    I have used my dyson dc39 perhaps a dozen times tops and the brush bar won't stay spinning. I've stood it upright and turned it off, clicked the brush power button. Spins then stop-makes pop sound.


    If it's like my DC-07, the brush shouldn't spin if it's upright, and also won't spin if you don't have the clutch for the brush fully engaged. Make sure that the back of the unit is tilted off of the fully upright position, and check that the brush clutch is all the way engaged - there may seem to be a middle setting, but that isn't really where you want to be. Hoping that helps.

    Our DC41 is impossible to push on carpet. Is there an adjustment to do? Almost like there is too much suction.


    See if the following information can help.

    CARPETS OR HARD FLOORS

    • The brush bar will always default to 'ON' (spinning) each time you switch the

    appliance 'ON' and recline it for cleaning.

    • The brush bar will not rotate when the appliance is upright.

    • To switch the brush bar 'OFF' (e.g. for delicate rugs and hard floors):

    - switch the appliance 'ON'

    - recline the appliance

    - press the brush bar 'ON/OFF' button - the brush bar will stop spinning.

    • The brush bar will automatically stop if it becomes obstructed. See 'Brush bar -

    clearing obstructions'.

    • Before vacuuming your flooring, rugs and carpets, check the manufacturer's

    recommended cleaning instructions.

    • Some carpets may fuzz if a rotating brush bar is used when vacuuming. If this

    happens, we recommend vacuuming in 'hard floor' mode and consulting with

    the flooring manufacturer.

    • The brush bar on the appliance may damage some carpet types. If you are
    unsure, turn 'OFF' the brush bar.

    Eats belts immediately


    HI There,

    Usually when the belt breaks immediately, this indicates that your roller brush has gone bad and needs to be replaced. I have never seen the motor shaft being damaged and causing belts to break before. When the roller brush can't spin because it's bearings have worn out, the motor shaft continues to try and turn the belt, but since the belt can't spin the motor shaft at that point burns right through the belt.

    To make sure that it's your roller brush, remove the brush from the vacuum cleaner, and hold it using just your two pointer finger tips, holding just the bearings caps at the end of the bar, and not the bar itself.

    Try to spin the brush using your thumbs. Does the brush spin freely without resistance? It should spin completely around 3-4 times on each spin. If it doesn't spin, then your bar is bad.

    If the brush doesn spin, and it continues to break belts, this means that the belt is being installed incorrectly, and is being pinched by the roller brush. Pull the belt forwards after installing to make sure the brush spins freely.

    Hope this helped you,

    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.
