Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear your DC33's brush bar is not rotating. This is likely to be because the brush control on the cleaner head has accidentally set to 'Hard floors'. In this mode, the brush bar will not rotate. Please recline your machine into the vacuuming position, turn it on, and make sure the brush control is set to 'Carpets'.

I'm confident this will resolve the issue, as using and replacing the wand will not have any effect on the function of the brush bar. It's also important to note that the brush bar will never rotate when the machine is standing upright.

If you would like further assistance after you've checked the brush control is correctly positioned, please get in touch with us directly. You can reach us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), or 1-877-397-6622 (CA).

Best wishes,

Jack

SOURCE: no suction

Sucked up a sock?? No seriously.. it may be as simple as that or that an on board filter is clogged. Check your manual for all filters and Hepa/screens and others. Also, is the unit making any odd noises since the non -suction scenario? Whining or screeching sounds, where is the motor impeller/vac bearing or similar is damaged or a hose is kinked within hte unit itself.. <not normally unless the unit has been taken apart and placed back together and crushed the main return vac hose. .

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: i was vacuuming, and ran over an area rug

Did you smell something burning? You probably melted/broke the drive belt.

Get the brush bar to spin again on my dc39 vac


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

The rotating brush bar inside DC39's Triggerhead floor tool should rotate when the vacuum is running, unless you turn it off using the button on the wand handle. If it's not rotating, our Support guide will walk you through the checks needed to resolve this: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc39/dc39-animal/machine-is-not-working/trigger-head-not-working/dc39-check-the-brushbar

In the unusual event that these checks don't resolve the issue, please contact our experts directly so we can help you further. You can reach the Dyson Customer Helpline by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Dyson dc40 motor not working, only brush turns


Hi Elsa, it's Jack at Dyson.

Like most Dyson vacuums, DC40 has a thermal cutout which will shut off the machine if it begins to overheat. This can often be due to a blockage, or because the filters need a wash.

Your machine should reset itself automatically after it's had a few hours to call down. However, to prevent any damage to your machine we'd recommend using our online Support guide to check for any blockages you may have missed: http://www.dyson.com/support/dc40/dc40-multi-floor/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-not-sucking-up-well/both-checks-checking-wand-and-hose-step-1

In normal use we recommend washing both filters at least once a month, using cold water without detergent as shown in the video attached. Allow at least 24 hours for the filters to dry completely before replacing them - it can help to place them by a radiator, or inside an airing cupboard.

If you'd like some further help after you've given this a try, you're welcome to contact our experts directly. You can reach us by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US) or 1-877-397-6622 (CA).

Loss of suction


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.
I'm sorry to hear you've had difficulty with your DC44 Animal. It's normal for air to blow out of the back of the machine - this is where the exhaust air is returned to the room after passing through the cyclone pack.
However, if your machine doesn't seem to be picking up as well as usual and you've recently washed the filter, this may be due to a blockage. To check the motorised carbon fibre floor tool, wand and bin inlet for any obstructions, please follow the steps shown in our online Support guide:
http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc44/dc44-animal/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-not-sucking-picking-up-as-well-as-usual-dc44/no-resolved-redirect-to-check-the-wand/check-wand
The motorised carbon fibre floor tool is driven by it's own motor, rather than the machine's airflow. If it isn't rotating, the video attached should help you locate anything which could be jamming the brush bar. Make sure you remove any threads or hair from around the brush bar carefully using scissors, taking care to avoid causing any damage to the bristles.
I'm confident this will resolve the issue, but if you would like some further help you can reach the Dyson customer Helpline directly by calling us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

The brushes do not disengage when in upright position


Set the brush control, as needed. The brush control turns the brushbar on the underside of the vacuum on and off. The button is located beside the power button, on the top-front of the vacuum cleaner. Turn on the brush control for cleaning carpet. Turn off the brush control for bare floors or delicatelb_icon1.png rugs..

This vacuum is not picking up anymore when used as an upright, however it does still work very well when using the hose and attachments, I have looked at the vacuum but I cannot figure out where the clog...


Is the brush rotating?
Have you turned it over, taken off the bottom plate and cleaned it out?
Is the belt in good shape or does it no longer rotate the brush?
Is it on the proper floor/carpet setting for the surface you are cleaning?

Try these as they usually repair most vacuum issues of this type.

Floor level brush stopped rotating after it caught


Look at the bottom and check a thread of carpet isn't wrapped around the brush, if so try pulling it off or carefully cutting it off. You'll probably see a collection of fluff etc above the brush that's stopping it from sucking up, pull this out, or it just may be that cause the brush isn't working its not picking up.
If this helps please rate me

Hi my dyson dc18 has great suction from wand but when you got to use the vac for floors little suction but wand still got suction even while vacuming floors is it suposed to stop suction from wand


My Dyson dc18 had the same symptoms. The wand worked well and the floor bar had no suction. After removing pieces & shoving my fingers into the machine (no blockage) I found the suction pipe rotates between two positions (floor and wand). It looks like a piece of plastic broke on the outside housing, so it no longer rotates positions when the wheels are raised or lowered. My son found we can move the suction by sliding a finger into the mechanism behind the wheel cover, and rotating the plastic piece clock-wise or counter clock-wise until it locks into position. It's a big pain but it works for now. I wish I could find a replacement piece online. Patty

Rainbow e series vaccum/scubber


If you are talking about the hard wood floor brush you hook it at the end of the one slightly bent wand. Look at the end of the brush that you would hook to the wand. In the circle opening there are two slits. On the end of the wand there are two bumps. You need to line them up, push the brush on then twist it around so it stays on. then you attach the straight wand to that and the other slightly bent wand at the other end of the straight one. It will go like this Wet hose, slightly bent wand, straight wand, slightly bent wand, and floor brush. I hope I helped. Leave the basin empty. put your water or cleaner on the floor scrub it around then turn machine on and suck it up.
