SOURCE: Dyson DC07 Vaccum - brush will not turn

Hi.

Your Dyson has A clutch unit this engages the brush roller when you pull the handle back to vacuum.

Check the clutch control knob which is at the bottom left side of machine looking from the front.
It should rotate to drive position when handle is pulled back.

If it doesnt turn the knob by hand to drive & try the machine.

If you still have no brush rotation after doing all this then UNPLUG machine from mains supply.
Now lay machine on its side & remove the sole plate, This is the cover over the brush roller.
Turn the 3 plastic screws to unlock postition & lift sole plate off.

Now try to yurn brush roller using your hand. It should turn freely if it is difficult to turn look for any foriegn object obstructing the roller.

If no obstruction found then remove the brush roller from the machine & check the bearings in the ends of the brush roller one or both may be siezed up if they are then new brush roller will solve the problem.

If bearings are good then either the clutch is faulty or the second belt which goes clutch to motor has snapped & will need replacing.

It is difficult to fully explain the clutch removing procedure,
But there are service manuals available for these repairs at this site

SOURCE: the brush bar wont spin on my dyson dc 25... i

Hi its Darran at Dyson.

Simply switch the machine off and stand it upright. Press the brush bar on/off switch once and then turn the machine back on.

When you release the machine into the vacuuming position, the brush bar should start to turn again.

If you still having problems, please contact our Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Kind regards

SOURCE: Dyson animal is giving me fits

Hi,

Try this quick repair and see if this fixes your Dyson in terms of not going in the upright position: This is a frequent problem that we see come in on Dysons. If this doesn't fix it, please feel free to just use the clarification request and let me know this didn't fix it. The suction problem is happening because when the machine is put in the upright position it diverts the suction from the floor to the hose automatically, and it's probably stuck in between the lower part and the hose part.

Step 1.
Turn power off and unplug the machine.
Tilt the machine backward to a 45° angle.

Step 2.

  • Hold the section under the airway inspection pipe.
  • The black forward lock button must be held down simultaneously, otherwise the valve carriage will not move.
  • Pivot this section upwards until it clicks into place.
  • Release the black button once the valve pipe carriage is moved up into place.

    Step 3.

    • Tilt the machine forward.
    • The cleaner head should now slide underneath the part you have just clicked into place.
    • The machine should now stand upright.

    In terms of the machine not picking up, this could be caused by a few things.

    The first thing you should check is the filter. The DC14 has a motor filter that is recommended to be washed every 90 days. Here's how to access this filter:

    • To remove the washable filter: Remove the clear bin; and cyclone top from your machine by pressing the cyclone release button.
    dc14_cyclone_removal_01.gif
    • Lift clip to remove the filter from the machine.*
    dc14_filter_removal_01.gif dc14_filter_removal_02.gif
    *The post-motor filter located under the clear bin should last the lifetime of the machine and does not need to be washed.

    There are two different types of filters that were used on the Dyson DC14, and One part filter, and a two part filter. Here's instructions on how to clean both of them:

    ONE PART FILTER:
    • Wash the filter in cold water only. (Please do not use detergent, do not wash in a dishwasher or washing machine).
    • Repeat the steps shown below until the water runs clear.
    filter_wash.gif filter_clean_squeeze.gif
    • Wash the filter in cold water only. (Please do not use detergent, do not wash in a dishwasher or washing machine).
    • Repeat the steps shown below until the water runs clear.
    filter_wash.gif filter_clean_squeeze.gif
    • Wash the filter in cold water only. (Please do not use detergent, do not wash in a dishwasher or washing machine).
    • Repeat the steps shown below until the water runs clear.
    filter_wash.gif filter_clean_squeeze.giffilter_1.jpg
    • Wash the filter in cold water only. (Please do not use detergent, do not wash in a dishwasher or washing machine).
    • Repeat the steps shown below until the water runs clear.
    filter_wash.gif filter_clean_squeeze.gif

    • Leave to dry in a warm place for 24 hours. DO NOT dry the filter inside a clothing dryer, hair dryer, microwave the filter, place the filter in an oven, or near a naked flame.
    • Please ensure the filter and filter case are completely dry before refitting into the machine.
    1_part_filter_drying.jpg TWO PART FILTER:
    filter_2.jpg
    • Wash the filter in cold water only. Please DO NOT use detergent on the filter, or wash the filter in a dishwasher or in a washing machine.
    • Repeat the steps shown below until the water runs clear.
    • Leave the filter to dry in a warm place for 12 hours, until completely dry.
    • DO NOT dry the filter inside a clothing dryer, hair dryer, microwave the filter, place the filter in an oven, or near a naked flame.
    dc14_filter_01.gif dc14_filter_05.gif dc14_filter_06.gif
    The filter should be washed at least once every 6 months.

    Also, since you have removed the bottom plate, a common problem on the Dyson's is when this plate is reinstalled. It is very easy to put the plate on incorrectly, which prevents the brushes from hitting the carpeting. This can seriously decrease the pick up on carpets. Check the bottom plate to make sure that it was put back on properly. Here's pictures of both the correct, and incorrect way to reinstall the bottom plate:

    Here's a picture of the WRONG way to install the bottom plate. Notice the gap in between the two housings:


    9739790.jpg
    Here's another picture, that is the RIGHT way to install the soleplate:


    8b953d0.jpg
    I would say probably 6 times out of 10 this is the problem with the customers machine. If you checked the soleplate and it is installed correctly, move on to the second possible problem.



    I hope that this was helpful to you. Please feel free to use the Clarification Request form here on Fixya if you have any questions.

    Thank you,

    Chris J.

    The cog belt is probably not aligned with the motor gear. Watch this video and follow its instructions closely.

    Does the whining noise come from the motor or the brush area?
    If it's from the brush area, it's probably the belt. Check to be sure the belt is not worn. Sometimes belts will glass up and slip. Also, check to see if it is still completely on as it should be. You may need to replace the belt.

    Squeeling noise dyson 33


    Is it when you go from carpet to floor or floor to carpet? It will make a loud noise detecting a possible suction issue. I've also had loud noises and turned over the vacuum and where the brush is, traps hair, thread, rubber bands, etc. Just take a scissor and cut it all out. Don't cut the bristles. Roll the brush as you cut and pull all the stuff wrapped around the brush. Once it is free, try it again.

    My dyson 17 dc is making a noise like a loose roller but it's tight. it sounds loud and vibrating type noise


    Hi there, your machine is designed to make a ratchet noise if the brush bar is obstructed.

    Please check to ensure that there are no blockages around the brush bar and that any hair or threads have been removed. If you need help with this, you can follow our self help guide in the support section at www.dyson.com.

    If you need any further help or advice, please contact our Helpline on 1866MYDYSON.

    My dyson DC17 makes a loud noise when i tip the handle down to make the brush spin on the floor?


    Loud noises are usually caused by worn belts, unbalanced roller brush or debris in the roller brush. Check these things. Here is a link to the belt you need:

    Very loud click/catching noise - Dyson DC07Allergy


    Take the sole plate off the brush bar (with a coin or a screw driver)compartment and check for blockages near the brush bar and make sure the brush bar spins round freely.
    Its sounds like the clutch is slipping (it does this to protect it self from burning out when something is stopping the brush bar from turning)
    A quick test is when in upright position turn the brush bar knob to off
    (usally in drive postion) then try the user position again - the brush bar should not be turning and they should be no noise

    Dyson making loud noise


    If your brushroller isn't spinning it will make the loud sound. Try removing the brushroll and reinstalling it. If this doesn't work, you may need a new brushroller.You can find one here...

    Dyson DC14 all floors.


    sept 30,08 bought dc14 all flloor. After 3 to 4 uses it started making lots of noise when on carpet setting. I examined the roller brush and it was cracked at one end. I returned it Oct 13 ,08 and got another dc 14 all floor. Now this one after 2 uses has the same problem only a larger crack in the brush and a small piece of the brush broke off. Very dissapointed.
