Question about Dyson Ball DC24 Bagless Upright Vacuum
My brushbar head is not spining on my dyson dc24
Hi there Shane, it's Jack at Dyson.
DC24's brush bar will shut off if something jams it - for example, a rug fringe or a shoelace. Once you've checked the cleaner head for any obstructions, you should be able to reset it. To do this, please follow the steps shown in the video.
It may help to push the red reset button with the eraser end of a pencil or something similar. You should feel a click as you push it in.
The brush bar will never rotate when the machine is standing upright, so please make sure you recline it into the vacuuming position before testing it.
If you do need further help after trying this, please give our experts a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

SOURCE: no suction on dyson dc24 ball
Well i just fixed my Dyson Ball with the same problem you have. My wife and i found out it was a crumpled receipt in the lower section of the hose at the upright/handheld pivot #3 in diagram and it was catching cat hair and other things. I began by removing the canister and turned on the vacuum to see if the direct access to the fan had suction. Then i moved to #5; i reattached the canister and threw in some cat hair into it from the bottom. i turned on the vaccum to see if it spinned around; it didnt. I then moved to #4, i removed the head and then turned on the vaccum to see if maybe the head had a leak at the top connecter; as i predicted the strength was minimal. I then worked my way to #1 to see if the strength was the same or if there was a difference. no difference for us. Well then it must be #3.. of course the last one i checked. I used a small flashlight and peared in and i didnt see anything... i then used a coathanger very softly as to not puncture the hose. i then noticed some hair being pushed out but the main culprit wasnt showing. my wife gave me needle nose pliers and i pried the hose off of the top connection in #3; so i could get a better look; you may be able to push it off with your hands. and viola! a crumpled reciept for 3 Monster energy drinks.... the same ones....i drink... oops!... hopes this helps. just go through it step by step. youll know its working once stuff begins to spin in the canister. almost regretted throwing that dyson registry junk away.

Solution to Dyson Ball wil Not stand up / Kickstand will not go down:
I had this problem on my Ball. The metal guides on the red foot lever had jumped out of their tracks and you have to get them back into the guide tracks on the rear wheel assemblies. I pulled on the affected wheel assembly to get the metal post on the red kickstand to reset it where it should be.

Hi its Darran at Dyson.
It sounds as though the hose is blocked. I would recommend following the blockage procedure. If this does not resolve the problem, please call our Helpline on 0800 298 0298, between the hours of 7am - 10pm, 7 days a week.

There are several things that this could be. Probably the most common problem that we see when customers come in with this problem is actually a fairly simple problem to fix. Here are just a few things that this could be.
The fist possible problem sounds like the most probable to me, just because of the fact that you said you had just replaced the clutch, and therefore you had to remove the bottom sole plate. This is a VERY common problem actually.
Possible Problem #1. The first problem is extremely common. In fact, we probably see between 2-3 of these problems every week. It mostly happens after people take the bottom plate off the vacuum cleaner in order to clean the roller brush. What happens is when they reinstall the bottom plate, they put it on on incorrectly. It's actually very easy to do. When the bottom plate (soleplate) is installed wrong, there will be a gap between the bottom plate, and the agitator housing, or the purple tray the roller brush sits in. This will cause the soleplate to be a few inches higher off the ground then it should be, preventing the brushes from even hitting the carpet. This makes it seem to the user that vacuum has lost suction power because without the brushes hitting the carpet, the machine will not pick up very well on floors, but when they use the attachment hose there's plenty of suction power.
Here's a picture of the WRONG way to install the bottom plate. Notice the gap in between the two housings:
Here's another picture, that is the RIGHT way to install the soleplate:
I would say probably 6 times out of 10 this is the problem with the customers machine. If you checked the soleplate and it is installed correctly, move on to the second possible problem.
Possible Problem # 2. Turn the vacuum cleaner upside down so the brush roller is facing upwards. I found the easiest way to work on it is to put it on a counter top or work bench. On the left hand side behind the roller brush you should see a flexible transparent hose that goes from the motor to the agitator housing. This hose actually has a lot of strain on it when the vacuum cleaner is in the reclined position. When the first few series of Dyson DC07 models came out, they didn't make this hose long enough, so when the vacuum was in the reclined position, it would put too much stress on the hose, and cause the hose to actually crack, usually right where the end of the hose that goes into the agitator housing. Examine your hose and see if you have any visible cracks in this hose. If you need to you may just remove the entire hose assembly by pulling on it. It will easily come right out of the machine so you can inspect it better. Here's a picture of where the hose usually cracks:
This would also explain why the vacuum works fine when using the attachments, but not on the floors. The attachment hose uses a different suction channel, and when the machine is in the upright position, no suction goes through this hose. If you do find a crack in this hose, the this hose needs to be replaced. Here's a direct link to that hose on our GoVacuum website.

Possible Problem #3. I would suspect that this may not be the problem, but if neither of the solutions above worked, then try this one. Dyson's in general are prone to clogging. There are a few clog ports throughout the vacuum cleaner that were added there due to Dyson prototypes becoming clogged at these points. Here are pictures of how and where to check for these clogs. Simply remove the suction port covers at both of these locations:
If you are getting suction power from the hose, but the vacuum still doesn't pick up on the floors, I think that these solutions should fix your problem. If you just replaced the clutch mechanism, the roller brush should be fine, but turn the vacuum over on it's side and make sure that the roller brush is actually spinning while it's on carpet mode. If none of these problems fixed your Dyson, please use the Clarification Request, or leave another comment here on the Fixya repair page, and I'll be happy to further diagnosis the vacuum cleaner with you.

In theory, yes. If the brushbar isn't held firmly, then the belt isn't running smoothly which puts more strain on the motor. This can cause the motor to get hot very quickly which will trip the thermal overload protection.
After it switches off, do you have to wait several minutes before it will turn back on?
