Question about Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
Hi thanks for your help. We have a Dyson Stowaway with a DC 20 turbine head "for improved performance on carpets". Our power head is not working. We have pulled it down using the instructions and can't see anything causing the problem. The bristles do not rotate. If we put our hand on the suction point whilst the cover is off, it works. As soon as we put the cover on it doesn't seem to have suction and doesn't work. I'm not sure if there could be something wrong with the seal or if there's something really simple that I've missed. I really would appreciate anyone's suggestions on what could be happening. Cheers, Michelle
There is a gray button next to the red "power on" button that powers the brush unit. If the unit has tripped the reset for some reason it must be reset. This can be done by holding the gray button down for ten seconds while the unit is not running. When you power it up after this reset, the brush unit should run.

There is a belt which drives the brush head. Make sure that is not broken. Also, the pull out on the side of the unit that has the "filter" on it is the on/off for the brush head. Make sure this is pulled out so the brush head can rotate. Last of all, when you put the cover on the unit make sure it is completely flush with the unit and not binding the brush bar in any way.
