Problem with Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
Dyson Animal DC07 making a horrible noise!3 Solutions
Ok heres my problem, I was using it and it started making this horrible loud noise, stopped the hoover and it looked like the brushes were full of dog hair so cut that all away, its still doing it and the brushes are not moving so we thought maybe it was the belt, but the belt looks to be fine. The noise starts when I put the head of the hoover down to hoover, I can use the rest of it fine (less suctions though) I have no manual with this as I bought it second hand so dont know what I can and cant try. Any ideas please??

Ensure plug is not in the socket.
remove the guard from around the roller on base of Dyson by turning 3 screws 90 Deg anti clock wise.
unclip belt from the metal spindle from the motor.
Pull out the roller.
Pull the end of the roller out.
They do not screw, they just pull out.
Clean the muck out from inside the roller ends.
Put end caps back on.
put belt on and thread through the slot.
put belt back on to motor spindle.
Ta da it stops squeeling.

The sound is just there to tell you that the brushes are not spinning. Awful huh? lol Well, the problem with Dyson is that they are very difficult for the customers to fix themselves. You can try to reposition the brushroll ends, but without a belt lifter, it's pretty hard to do. I suggest calling Dyson directly @ 312 469-5923.

This is actually an internal problem. I had this happen a few years ago and had to have it serviced. It was still under warranty so I didn't pay anything.
It has to do with the gears or something similar (sorry I cannot remember exactly what it's called) I called the number on the side of the vacuum and the operator listened to the vacuum and told me the gears (or something) were stripped.
I'm on here looking to see if I can repair it myself.
