Question about Dyson DC39 Multi floor canister vacuum cleaner

1 Answer

I received my dyson a few months ago. I have used it regularly and it performed very well. I used the brush bar on all the carpeted surfaces and turned it off when cleaning the linoleum floor. Just recently, the brush bar no longer spins. I turn the vacuum on, the brush spins for a few seconds and then turns off. It is clean and free from entanglements, the canister is also clean. Do you have any solutions?

SOURCE: DC 07 BRUSH BAR DOES NOT TURN BELT OK

Stand vacuum up and with it plugged in. Rotate knob between carpet and bare floor and back 5 times leaving it on carpet when finished. Rotate vacuum back from upright position and lay vacuum on the floor, rotating it onto its side. Turn vacuum on.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: motorized brush bar not turning on Dyson Vacuum

Apparent common failure is that either the thin yellow and or blue motor drive wires that run from the LH side of the vacuum where the "control board" is located down into the hinge / ball area become stretched and then fray and eventually break. Happened to my Dyson twice. First repaired under warranty, second took about 20 minutes. You need a Torx screwdriver to remove the LH panel ( 4 screws) and also an access panel (2 screws) at the side of the ball which permits access to the blue / yellow wire connectors. I replaced with a new wire and connectors having fed the wires through the access hole making sure sure enough wire was available for the movement of the handle. Also ensure that when the covers are replaced they do not trap any wires underneath.

How to Turn off beater bar


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC44's brush bar is engineered to rotate on both hard floors and carpeting. The brush bar includes stiff nylon bristles to agitate and remove stubborn dirt and pet hair from carpet, and anti-static carbon fibre filaments to remove fine dust from hard floors and crevices.

For this reason, the brush bar is designed to run on all floor surfaces when the machine is in use, and cannot be turned off. You might find our Getting started guide useful:

Dyson dc33 brush won't turn but belt not broken


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC33 is suitable for cleaning hard and carpeted floors. It includes a brush control system which allows you to shut the brush bar off when cleaning hard floor surfaces. It's worth checking that the brush control is set correctly - it's possible it may have been inadvertently set to 'Hard floors'. For the brush bar to rotate, it must be set to 'Carpets':

07061835-cc37-4e9f-b20c-ef1beba7e89e.jpg

It's also important to note that the brush bar will not rotate when the vacuum is standing upright, so make sure you recline it into the normal vacuuming position before testing it.

If this doesn't resolve the issue, please turn off and unplug the machine, then check that there are no obstructions in the cleaner head which could be jamming the brush bar. Remove any threads or hair around the brush bar, as these can affect the performance.

We can take you through some diagnostic checks to determine what may be causing the issue. If a repair or replacement part is needed, we can also confirm if this is covered under warranty.

Brand new dyson dc46 beater bar not working


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

There are a number of reasons why your brush roller has stopped moving. General maintenance to your vacuum is crucial and will help it work at peak performance.

First things first lets focus on the brush roller. Unplug the vacuum and turn it on its side. Look for any noticeable clumps of debris or hair strands that may be caught in the brush roller. Remove these obstructions, probably best to do so with a scissor if it's hair or long pieces of carpet fibers. After removing the debris try manually rotating the brush roller to uncover other hidden clogs. Another thing to take note of is the condition of the bristles on the roll itself. Are they loose or worn down? These are signs that your brush roller is in need of replacing.

While checking out your brush roll you might as well take a look at your vacuums belt. Your belt should be replaced about every three months. After regular usage, the belt will stretch out, lessening the tension on the brush roller. Lesser tension diminishes the brush roller's turn rate and speed. If the belt feels loose then it certainly is affecting your vacuums suction as well as your brush roll not moving at all.

My Dyson DC17 gets carpet fibers stuck between the brush bar belt and where the belt attaches to the machine (not the brush bar end of the belt) Then it shreds the carpet fiber and I have to tear it apart...


Hi there,

If you're concerned that the amount of fibre your carpet is shedding seems to be excessive, I'd recommend consulting your carpet manufacturer to determine if this is normal, as the shedding period will vary according to carpet type and usage. They may also be able to offer advice on the best way to vacuum it, as they sometimes suggest vacuuming certain carpet types using suction only.

Kind regards,

Jack

The brush will only spin when the machine is reclined. Not when the machine is stood upright.
If the brush doesn't turn when the machine is reclined, and the brush control set to "auto", you have a brush bar and/or belt problem.

This may sound silly, but it sounds like that you a have static electricity problem. If the dust is collecting on top (outside of the brush head that is probably the static attracting it. This is common during the colder months. You know how during these months when you walk across carpet and then just someone or a metal objest, you get a shock.
You might try lightly spraying a little "static guard" on the top of the brush head before using it, or using a carpet dusting product that smells good, and may reduce the static.

I have the yellow dyson. A few months ago the


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

The first check would be to see if the brush bar is turning when the machine is switched on and in the vacuuming position. To do this, release the head and lie the machine on its side. Switch it on and check the brush bar making sure long hair and fingers are kept out of the way.

If the brush bar is turning, you will need to check the machine thorugh for blockages and clean the pre filter as these are the most likely cause of a loss of performance.

If this does not resolve the problem or if the brush bar is still not turning, please contact our Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).
