SOURCE: How to replace belt on Dyson DC17

Preface: Dyson folks were great, answer so simple I was embarassed after I called. 5 minute fix.
1. Loosen 3 screws from bottom plate using flathead screwdriver or coin edge and remove it.
2. Wiggle roller until it pulls straight out.
3. Squeeze new belt and loop it over metal drive gear (you'll easily see the gear).
4. Keeping belt on gear, insert edge of roller through belt and rotate the roller while pushing it through belt until it is inside the belt, then continue rotating roller and sliding it over until belt is in position over gears on roller.
5. Insert roller into slots on that it came out of, reattach bottom cover and its done.

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

SOURCE: Power shuts off on my dyson dc17 animal

I had the same issue. Got on the phone with Dyson. THe vacuum has a safety feature where if the motor gets too hot it cuts off. You have to leave it for 45 minutes or so and then it will work again. There is an underlying issue though. My problem was the black gasket thats in the debris bin shifted, probably from when emptying i pushed it on something. The black gasket should actually hang off the bottom like a skirt and the 2 groves should fit in on the groves of the gray mechanism. This seal is what provides 100% suction. Because of this..my vaccumm has been accumulating pet hair by the belt which i hear alot of people talking about and especially in the filter area. This is because I broke the seal by not having the gasket in place properly and it wasnt sucking 100%. They are sending me a complete new cyclone unit which has the debris catcher as well as she said its probably so caked up with debris it will never work again 100%. no questions asked they are sending it to me free of charge.

So if you remove the clear cyclinder debris catch thing all you will have is the purple cyclone on top and on the bottom is the black rubber gasket....

The manual can be found here:
https://www.dyson.com/medialibrary/Files/Dyson/Support/downloads/US/Floorcare/manuals/dc17_opmanual_usa%20pdf.pdf


Per page 9 (and this is consistent with every Dyson manual I've seen for uprights), you put your foot on the lower assembly and pull back the upper one. If it's really hard to pivot, even after you get it back, I'd start with just doing so with the vacuum off and move it through it's full range of motion several times to see if it eases up. Also check that the lower spot where the accessory-tool hose clicks into the lower part of the unit if completely set into place. Some manuals have mentioned this as part of troubleshooting.

Good Luck!

Replace bearing on dyson dy-916217-01


I have a bad motor myself. The bearings make loud noises and the wife is on me to fix it. I can only replace the entire motor because the bearings are not available that I am aware of. The motor runs about $50, cheaper than having them fix it. Dyson does not have parts listed on their pages but you can Google the vacuum/parts and find them. Working on a Dyson is like working on an car. You have to take everything apart to get to what you need to replace. Good luck.

I have a dyson dc17 animal. When you put the handle down, it is very loud


Hi there,

When you lower your DC17's handle into the vacuuming position, a second motor which powers the brushbar will switch on, which will make the machine sound a little louder than when it's standing upright.

However, if you're concerned that the noise the cleaner is making is unusually loud, I'd encourage you to get in touch with us directly - we'll be able to run through some troubleshooting checks over the phone to help resolve this.

You can reach us on 1-866-693-9766 - or if you email your contact details to askdysonUS@dyson.com, someone will be in touch as soon as possible to provide assistance.

Poor Suction


The flexible hose between the beater bar housing and the connection to the dust bin might have come loose or has a hole in it. Check this hose for your low suction problem.

Dyson animal


called dyson they told me to turn the vaccum on and off 5 times, lower the handle to the floor when it was off. Now try the vaccum again and it worked. This is somekind of reset.

Thanks Paul
