SOURCE: beater bar brush stopped working...

Does the power head motor stop, or does the brush roll stop. If it is the brush roll stopping, replace the belt and/or the brush roll. If it is the motor, you may need to clean out around the motor, it may not be getting enough air to cool causing it to overheat and stopping. That the brush roll plate off, take out the screw, and the top will come off, then you can check to see if cleaning is the answer, if not, the motor may be bad.

SOURCE: beater bar on Dyson upright won't turn when handle is lowered

I have finally fixed my sister's dyson dc 15 beater bar problem. It was just 2 tiny broken wires connect to circuit board lead to the beater bar. The wires broke where they go through the black rubber gommet. You need a torx screwdriver tx 15 to remove 2 plastic covers to access the wires. When looking at the front of the vacuum, the gray covers located on the right side of the vacuum. 1 big cover with a black rubber gasket and other small gray cover is on the rotating ball area.
This my new year resolution is to warn people not to buy Dyson vacuum cleaner ( Junk) design to break down! Shame on you Dyson!!!! Save your money find good old vacuum cleaner with metal parts.

OLD IS IN NEW IS JUNK!

Happy New Year!

What is wrong with my vacuum cleaner when it want pick up and it blow the trash back out


Sounds like you might be hitting the reverse button some vacuums have. Otherwise there's stuff getting trapped in the space above the beater bars and when you lift the vacuum while it's running, this trapped trash has an opportunity to get out now that there's no pressure from the floor. You might want to check and make sure there's nothing stuck in your tubing that's preventing things from going into the bag. My wife use to suck up gum wrappers and half sheets of paper and it would clog up the hose. I'd have to use a broom stick of wire coat hanger to unplug this.

Oreck vacuum cleaner stop and burn smell


sounds like hair or string or something like that is wrapped around the beater bar(the long brush under the head that brushes the carpet) keeping it from turning. The belt that drives the bar is getting hot because the beater bar is stuck.

What does a flashing light on the dc28 vaccuum mean


There are a few things a flashing light could mean. One is that the beater bar has something stuck on it. Or, it could be that the bag or canister is full. Then again, maybe something is stuck in one of the intakes. Be careful when checking the beater bars. Unplug the vacuum before touching them, you wouldn't want your hands getting injured or fingers broken:( Clear anything that is wrapped around the beater bars, hair, string, etc., and then check the hoses to make sure nothing is stuck in them. If you have suction, the interior is clear. If not, then check in there to make sure nothing is clogging it. Good luck and be careful:)

The motor spins but the belt will not move, therefore the rubber on the belt burns right where it is attached to the motor.


Sounds like your carpet beater roller is jammed up, probably with hair or string, in most cleaners you can remove the roller by taking the cover off below the brush. Remove the roller and clean wrapped uo stuff

This vacuum keeps getting clogged in the hose and has terrible suction. The women who helps clean my house won't even use it as it performs terribly. Any suggestions


check vac air filter(not the dirt collection bag) also something could be lodged in hose mechanism so there is always a partial restriction. make sure the beater bar is not set too low. check the dirt that accumulates in bag to see that there is not an excess number of carpet fibers in there. beater bar should be clean and spin freely.

Hoover U6476-910 - Very little suction from the bottom


If you haven't already, remove the beater bar. This is accomplished by unplugging the vacuum and turning it beater bar up. Remove the clips or screws that hold the plate on the beater bar and set aside. The beater bar sits in sockets, so carefully remove the bar, noting the correct position of the sockets. This will make reassembly much easier. Slip the beater bar out of the drive belt. Now, inspect the suction cavity that the beater bar would discharge into. Usually, things clog up here as there is a flex hose that catches things, creating a pluggage.
Hope this helps, --W/D--
