I don't believe there is an external thermal reset. It is most likely built into the motor.

SOURCE: Brushes are clean, but Roomba stops and says clean brushes

I decided to take it apart and see if I could fix it because even if something inside went "SPROING" and I couldn't get it back together, it wouldn't be any worse than it was already.

FIrst, remove the dust bin part and the brushes. Then, there are four screws on the bottom gray panel which have to be removed first in order to get to the gears which hold the brushes. I did not remove the little sweeper brush on the front, but I just slide it through the hole in the gray panel.

Then in order to get out the orange section which actually holds the brushes, there are four screws which must be removed. The orange section is attached to a blue section. This entire unit comes out by sliding it toward the area where the dust bin goes, being careful not to tear the light gray rubber gasket which covers the side.

Once that section is removed, there are two screws on each side. These screws hold the orange thing to the blue thing. Once the screws are removed, lift up only the side which has the white squares into which the brushes are inserted. These are actually the back side of little gears. There is a face plate on the outside of the orange part on this end. The other end contains a bunch of wires and I was careful not to disconnect any of them.

The face plate has six screws which must all be removed. Use caution when removing the face plate. Hold it up so that all of the stuff doesn't fall out. It has a bunch of gears, little brass looking fittings and grease. Take care to only remove the gears which have the squares which hold the brushes AND do it one at a time unless you like working jigsaw puzzles. I used tweezers and a pin to clean the "gunk" consisting of hair, fuzz, etc., out of the little gears.

Reverse the process to put it back together. Hazel, my little Roomba, played me a happy little song and immediately went back to work. She seems as good as new.

SOURCE: roller motor on a DC17 dyson wont turn on

there is a reset button under the cover that houses the on/off switches. remove the handle/wand and look on the back (where the top of the hose sits) for 2 screws (its a torx/star head screw size t10 i believe). remove them and locate 4 small locking tabs that hold the switch cover to the frame of the vacuum. Depress them and pop the cover off (2 towards the top and 2 towards the bottom). Youll see 3 switches (2 square red buttons and one small cylindrical shaped one). Push the small red one (the one to the left if my memory serves me right). you should hear a click. if you do than the switch is reset. if not check all connections to all 3 switches. if you see nothing loose or not connected, you may need a new brushbar motor. try it

I turn on the vacuum and it does nothing but when i put the brushes down is turns on and the brush motor runs.....but the suction motor won't do anything.......help!


You have power so it can't be the switch or power cord. It is most likely the motor or the cord from the switch to the motor that is the problem. Start by checking these areas first.

My dc17 has dust coming from under beater bar when sweeping


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC17. If debris seems to be coming back out of the cleaner head, there may be a blockage in the machine. To locate and remove any blockages, please follow the steps shown in our online support guide:

http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=955&product=DC17-ANIMAL

You may also want to give the filter a wash - in normal use this should be done at least once every 3-6 months, as shown in the video below. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 24 hours for the filter to dry completely before replacing it.

This should resolve the issue, but if you'd like any further assistance or advice, please call us on 1-866-693-9766 - or if you email us at askdysonUS@dyson.com, someone will be in touch as soon as possible to provide assistance.

Best wishes,

My Dyson dc 17 gets hair clogged in the entry port to the canister from the main vaccum. Does this model have a filter that might need to be replaced? How can I fix this problem?


Hi there,

Sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC17. To remove any debris from the cyclone inlet, or from the shroud, you can separate the clear bin and cyclone pack using the silver catch on the rear of the clear bin. You can then use a soft brush to remove any debris from the shroud.

Your DC17's pre-motor filter requires washing at least once every 3-6 months. The correct way to locate, remove, wash and replace this is demonstrated in the video linked below. Use cold water without any detergents, and always make sure it's totally dry before replacing it - this may take up to 24 hours.

My Dyson DC17 is not keeping the suction very well. There seems to be a problem of some sort with the spot where the filter goes. The two years I owned it I rinsed it out every 6 months and it was clean....


Hi there,

Sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC17. You might find it helpful to check the cleaner for blockages, since these could affect performance and may mean the filter needs washing more often than usual. The easiest way to check for and remove any blockages is to follow the steps shown in our online guide:

http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=954&product=DC17-ANIMAL

It's also a good idea to take a look at the video linked below, which demonstrates the correct way to wash the filters. This should be done at least once every 3-6 months. Use cold water without detergents, and make sure it's totally dry before replacing it.

http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=1463&product=DC17-ANIMAL

Following these steps should allow you to resolve your issue without further assistance. However, if you're still concerned, it's probably best if you get in touch with us directly.

How to replace dyson dc17 post motor filter (not the main "washable" one under the canister).


You do not have to disassemble the vacuum to get to the post motor filter. The above person does not know the DC17 if they are telling you this.
You simply remove one Phillips head screw, it is Phillips because most consumers won't have a T-15 driver at home. Remove that screw, the cover pops off and you take out the filter and replace it.
Easy peasy

Changing the HEPA filter on a DC17 Animal


Just took my Dyson in and yes my HEPA needed changing. It's under the right wheel (as you're looking at the machine); you can see it through the "vents" above the wheel. The screw is on the bottom of machine.

You will probably need a Torx (star) 15 screwdriver -- that's what Dyson seems to use everywhere.
