Re: release button

There is no button. You are supposed to place your foot on the area above the rolling brush and hold the base down while pulling the handle back.
There is a small metal clip under the vacuum that you should bend out a bit to make it easier to release. Unplug and flip the vacuum over. It is right in the middle between the back wheels. Use a pair of pliers. Don't bend it too far or it won't stay up when you want it to!

Hope this helps!

How to repair windtunnel hoover agitator that will not turn

Likely a broken belt. Also check the agitator brush roll bearings (in either end under the end caps) for hair, strong, thread, etc. as this will make the brush roll harder to turn and wear/break belts prematurely. If all these check okay, then observe the tensioning roller that causes the V belt (runs from the idler pulley to the brush roller) to be sure it is swinging down when the handle is released to hold tension on the belt, causing it to rotate. These tensioning rollers can break, but often are locked into the "Bare Floor" setting without the user noticing. Slide the carpet brush roll selector (located on top, next to the floor height slide adjustment) back and forth and make certain it is all the way into the "Carpet" setting to allow the tensioning roller to engage. [Note: The tensioning roller is always retracted (in the neutral or off position) when the handle is in the upright position. You must release the handle to allow this tensioing assembly to engage.]

The vacuum will not go back up into its upright position

After speaking to the Dyson helpline I repaired this problem easily. Lay the vacuum on its front. Looking at the pins either side of the red foot pedal you will see they have popped out of the groove into a square pocket. Flex the pedal to guide the pins back into place. This is made easier with a second person pulling the grey frame outwards.

Hi its Darran at Dyson.

The brush control is designed to switch the brush bar off automatically when you stand the machine back into the upright position. It is designed this way to protect any delicate floor surfaces when you have the machine switched on and upright and when you are using the hose.

If the brush control should be in the centre position and move forward to the "on" position when you release the head. If it is not doing this, please contact our Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Kind regards

Difficulty vacuuming SmartStrand carpet

Wish I had a solution because we have the same problem with our Smartstrand. We have a Beam Central Vac put in our new townhome and it takes a huge amount of effort to push the power head forward. I have tried a couple of regular vaccum cleaners on it; same problem. The bottom of our power head has a black residue on it. ILike you, I am thinking there is something in this green product that accumulates on the bottom of the power head and prevents the power head from going forward smoothly. There must be other people having the same problem.

Beaters stop when vaccuming rug...didn't when new

I believe you need to change the belt that drives the brushes. When it gets stretched out, it will just spin on the axle of the motor or spin on the brush and smoke.

Kirby g4 vaccum

please clarify what you mean?
Do you mean motor bearings or brush roll bearings?
brush roll bearings can be adjusted to lower the brush closer to the carpet when worn.
to do this remove the front brush assembly, there is usually a sticker below the belt hole showing RED = POSITION 1 HIGHEST (ie a new brush roll)
GREEN = POSITION 2 MIDDLE (brush part worn)
BLACK = POSITION 3 LOWEST (brush fully worn)
At each side of this there are 2 clips unlock these and remove the bottom cover.
Release the belt tension by rotating the belt release at the front.
Before removing the brush roll, at each end of the brush roll there is a grey plastic bearing carrier (Square at the ends) MARK this with a pen or marker just so you know the original position, also look closely for the coloured markings as indicated above or numbering 1,2 or 3.
If RED or "1" is showing you need to remove the brush roll by pulling it out and rotate the endcaps to Green or "2" and re-insert the brush roll, If Green or "2" is showing then rotate the endcaps to Black or "3" and re-insert.
If Black or "3" is showing then the brush roll is worn and cannot be adjusted any more, fit a new brush roll and insert with RED or "1" showing.
To re-attach the belt, move the belt to the middle of the roll and rotate the belt knob at the front ensuring the belt engages with the hook on the inside.

Hoover WindTunnel Self-Propelled V Belt

when you released the end to slide the new belt on it allows the tension roller to slide into the wrong position. Remove the top so that you can see the roller, at the left side of the roller mechanism there is a screw, loosen it enough to allow the roller to return to the correct position.
good luck

I need more suction. The Head is too high on my carpet.


A slitght adjustment can be made by either screwing on short transparant internal hose on top of floor head tighter or undoing it turn.

Do this on A table as you need to get down to be able to view sole pate movement

Each time you adjust hose stand vac up on the table & pull handle back as if cleaning carpet you must not push head of vac down on the table.

Now look at sole plate usually when they are wrong the sole plate bottom back end tilts up lifting brush from carpet.

Now tap front of head down if sole plate springs back up lifting brush up again adjust hose a bit more.

What you are trying to do is get sole plate as horizontal as you can.

If you really cant get it to pick up dirt any better try fitting new hose they are more sprigier from new,
