Question about Dyson DC25 Animal Bagless Upright Vacuum
The changeover between sucking through the hose or through the head isn't working on my Dyson DC25. This means that, even when in the down position, it always sucks through the hose.
Check the spring as not come off you can get spares off the link below.

SOURCE: no suction when vacuming floors
There are 2 types of Dc07 one is clutched & has two belts the second has only one belt going from motor to brush roller.
Lay machine on its side pull back handle as if you are to vac carpet switch machine on look to see if brush roller is spinning.
If it is not spinning unplug machine from mains supply & remove the sole plate by turning the three plastic screws to unlock position, Lift sole plate away if you have non clutched machine you will now see the brush roller with A belt going from this to the motor shaft belt may have snapped or come off so replace it.
If your Dyson has A clutch unit this engages the brush roller when you pull the handle back to vacuum.
Check the clutch control knob which is at the bottom left side of machine looking from the front.
It should rotate to drive position when handle is pulled back.
If it doesnt turn the knob by hand to drive.
If you still have no brush rotation after doing all this then either the clutch is faulty or the second belt which goes clutch to motor has snapped & will need replacing.
There are service manuals available for these repairs at this site

SOURCE: accessory hose not sucking
Try taking the hose off, and making sure it is not stopped up, either in the hose, or where it attaches. Straighten a wire coat hanger and run down the hose to check for obstructions.
Hope this helps!!!

Hi- I have the same problem: suction fine, but the brushbar was not spinning. I went 1st to the Dyson site and went thru their troubleshooting guide and I'd done all those things, so I called Dyson (1-866-MY DYSON in the USA) and they walked me thru a very simple solution.
What worked was to "rest" the bare floor/carpet adjustment, and it's very easy! You do this by clicking the carpet to bare floor adjustment back and forth at least 5 times. Make sure when you end it's on carpet. Then tilt it back all the way from the upright position so it's flat on the floor and turn it onto it's left side. The carpet indicator should be below the word carpet. THAT WAS IT! As soon as I turned it on again, the brush bar is spinning great! I wish I could tell you right now how well it picks up, but unfortunately I took out the filter and rinsed it, so I have to wait until tomorrow to **** anything up. However, I'm sure it will work now that the brush bar is moving. Like I said, the suction was fine.
Just as an FYI--If you call, they will have you try other things to rule out other problems 1st. I had already done all the things suggested in their troubleshooting guide on their site and the only additional thing they asked me to try was to turn it on and tilt it back as though you are going to vacuum and make sure the suction from the top tube had stopped, as it normally does, and mine did.
Hope this helps!

If the belt seems to ok, you may need to order a replacement clutch assembly. These are not that expensive and can be ordered through dyson or possibly online. Switching from bare floor to carpet while the motor is running is really stressful on the brush mechanism. Turn the motor off before switching to carpet mode and you will never have to replace the clutch again.
