I bought a spot bot last year. It makes a grinding noise when I clean my rugs. Yes there is liquid in it.
Where can I have it checked on?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Depending on what you paid for it would determine the cost of repair and or labor, typically the item has a one year factory warranty and you would have to check with the manufacturer to see what the warranty is and I will list the Bissell Factory Manufacturer below. The grinding noise could be that you have a build up of dirt in the motor or a broken fan blade or fan, and sometimes it may be cheaper to replace it than to repair it due to the cost of the part and the labor to install. Just a suggestion….
So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

SOURCE: Spot Bot leaking water from reservoir through

make sure that your collection tank is empty and correctly attached. If it is full, it will shoot water on the spot, but not **** it up several times in the cleaning process leaving a large wet puddle bigger than the original spot.

Clean bissell spot bot brush


NONE of these answers apply to the question! The asker referred to the Bissell SPOTBOT, which doesn't have a push handle. I'd like to know how to remove the brush myself. I know how to remove the components but haven't been able to figure out how to remove the mechanism.

Beaterbar will not turn and very loud grinding


Greetings,

When the Dyson DC07 makes that horrible grinding noise, there's really only one of two things that can be wrong. I have taken a few pictures to help you try and diagnosis the problem.

The grinding noise is made by the machines clutch mechanism. The clutch is what stops the roller brush from spinning when you change the vacuum from carpets to bare floors. The grinding noise is the clutch slipping, and not being to able to turn the belt. In most vacuums when the belt can not spin freely it will cause the belt to burn or to break. On Dyson's, the clutch mechanism prevents the belt from burning or breaking if you were to get something stuck in the brushes such as a towel underneath of a bad, or tassles on an oriental rug.

So when you hear this grinding noise, only two parts could be bad, the actual clutch mechanism itself, or the roller brush. I'll gladly help you diagnosis, and give you instructions on how to fix your Dyson.

Step 1. Make sure the vacuum is unplugged. Then turn the vacuum upside down so that the brushes are facing up. It's easiest if you put the head of the vacuum on top of a bench, or counter top. This is how the vacuum should look:


b45ef25.jpg
Step 2. You see on the bottom of the vacuum 3 plastic screws that are usually the same color as the vacuum cleaner. If you're vacuum is purple, the screws will also be purple. Use a flat head screwdriver, and turn each of the 3 screws a half of a turn, counter clockwise to loosen then. After each screw has been turned (you don't need to remove the comletely, just a half of a turn is all), simply pull upwards on the bottom plate to remove it.

Step 3. You should now be able to see the roller brush exposed. You'll now need to remove the roller brush. This will take some patience, and some work in order to get this brush out of the vacuum. There is a special tool that has been designed to help you get the brush out easier. I would try getting the brush out first before buying this special tool. The easiest way is to use a flat head screw driver and pry the belt up while pulling up and out on the brush. With some patience and some manuvering, you'll be able to get the brush out of the vacuum. Here's where you should put the flat head screw driver on the brush:


9665ae3.jpg
Step 4. Once you get the belt out of the vacuum cleaner, it's time to test it. Use your finger tips to hold just the end caps on the very end of the roller brush. While holding just the end caps, use your thumbs to try and spin the roller brush. Does the brush spin freely? It should rotate completely several times on each spin. If the brush doesn't spin, or you feel some kind of resistance to the brush spinning, then this indicates that your roller brush has gone bad. Here's a picture of how to test the brush:


3a76171.jpg
If the roller brush went bad, then you'll need to purchase Genuine Dyson DC-07 Roller Brush for Models That Use a Clutch Part # 904174, then reinstall the new roller brush into the vacuum when you get it.

If the brush however was able to spin freely, and it span multiple times on each spin, this indicates a little more serious problem of the clutch itself has gone bad. The clutch replacement repair is a much longer, more challenging repair to do. I posted a video on how to replace the clutch below so that you may follow step by step instructions on how to change it. It was really helpful for me the first time I did this repair.


I hope that this was able to at least diagnose the problem for you. That horrible grinding noise can only be one of those two problems. If you found this repair helpful, please be sure to rate the repair as helpful by clicking the thumbs up icons in the top right hand corner of the repair. Please feel free to check out our website for your future Dyson vacuuming needs, we have a lot of stuff already on the site, and if we don't have it up, we can definitely get it for you.

Thanks again,

Dc 14 no suction/noise


Hi,

The sound you can hear is the clutch slipping the machine is designed to do this if the brush roller is jammed or foriegn object obstructing brush roller.

Remove the sole plate by turning the 3 plastic screws to unlock pull off sole plate now look for anything that is stopping brush from easily turning. If nothing obviouse but roller hard to turn by hand remove the brush roller & check the bearings at either end of the roller if they are siezed up A new roller will sort this out.

If brush roller is turning freely then your problem will be warn out clutch this will need replacing.

Its A lot to explain so try this site it has clutch removing manual for Dc14. http://dysonmanuals.llc.nu/

Grinding


Are the brushes turning? If not, take the brush block out and see if they turn easily, if they do, is the shaft sticking up still there, or has it broked off. Turn on the unit while the brush block is out, the nosie still there? If not replace the brush block #48437029. If noise is still there, it could be the turbine #43191005 or even the motor #43576197.
