One possible problem could be a worn clutch. I just had the same problem. Before buying a new clutch assembly, I took the out the clutch just to make sure I could do it (the link previously mentioned is great: http://www.dysonmedic.com/DC07%20Folder/DC07%20Clutch%20replacement.html). In the process, I also opened the clutch at the wide end (two screws and a little retaining clip on the side - can watch a video as to how to disassemble the clutch here: http://www.ezvacuum.com/dyson-dc04-dc07-and-dc14-belt-pack-for-clutch-system-90251401-2-pack-p-2196.html?currency=USD). In the "lid" you will see a little black plate (looks like the same material that a car breakpad is made out of). If the clutch is the problem this plate will look a little worn down. It can be removed and flipped over. You'll get a few more years out of it. Of course, when the second side wears out, you'll have to get a new clutch (but by then maybe the the entire vac will need replacing anyway). Saved myself $40. Enjoy.

Replaced drive belt for beater bar, but now beater bar motor will not engage/turn on.


The most likely problem is something was not put back together properly in the clutch. You can move the belts by hand with the clutch out of the machine. Move the motor belt and switch the lever off and on and see if the brush belt is turning on and off. It not you will need to take the clutch apart and reassemble it. Test it before installing.

Dyson blueprint beater bar won't turn


The Dyson DC 17 has a rug / floor switch on the head of the vacuum. Please check to make sure the switch is in the Rug position. If the brush roller still does not turn then you have broken the belt and need the following part.

Dyson 07 animale


Check out this YouTube Video:

http://www.ezvacuum.com/dyson-dc07dc14-clutch-assembly-90025204-genuine-p-1636.html

After reading a ton of forums I thought I needed to replace the clutch assembly. My Dyson was making a horrible noise when in "carpet" mode. Got a new clutch on eBay for a great price. Somewhat hard to replace, but thanks to the YouTube video, I was able to get it in.

HOWEVER this did not resolve the issue. I realized the beater bar was not spinning or was slipping. I thought I cleaned it all out but realized you need to take the beater bar out and pop the end cap out and clean the INSIDE of the beater bar. I additionally sprayed WD40 in there.

It spins great now and in the end I think that's all I had to do was clean out the cat hair build up inside the beater bar. But now I have a new clutch & belts too. Hopefully won't have issues anytime soon.

Belt replacement


It's a fairly simple job. The belt just loops over the end of the beater bar and motor shaft. Need to take the cover off the beater bar housing to get to it. Most difficult part is stretching the belt while putting the beater bar back in the housing.

Beater bar motor will not engage


Check your clutch to make sure it's engaged. There should be a knob on the foot of the vacuum that can be turned to stop the roller.

Beater Bar/Brush Won't Turn


Sometimes dust,lint and thread can work its way into the bearings on both ends,take the beater bar out and see if you can turn it in your hand,if it doesn't inspect the ends and clean them.Use what ever you can find to pull out the threads.Or take it outside and hose it off.

The beater bar/brush won't turn


HI THERE,
FIRSTLY, REMOVE SOLEPALTE BY QUARTER TURNING THE 3 COLOURED STUDS,THEN CHECK TO SEE IF THERE IS ANYTHING OBSTRUCTING THE BRUSH BAR OR IF THE BELT IS WORN OR SNAPPED. IF ALL SEEMS WELL PUT THE SOLEPLATE BACK ON AND ENSURE CLUTCH IS ENGAGED TO AUTO AND TRY IT AGAIN. IF NO JOY THEN PLEASE COME BACK TO ME.
