it is a armature problem common to makita products
replacing one armature with a new one does not solve the problem as the fault is a design fault
probably armature not wired heavy enough for continuous running
consider replacing it with a better brand that enables continuous operation
Ouch The video below shows how to to remove the brush head and how to clean it. I almost think that Dyson didn't ever expect this belt to break. The rest of the disassembly to get to the brush seems to be done by removing torx screws, I have not been able to find a replacement from dyson. A google search shows several sites that sell a replacement belt. Dyson DC41 DC43 Resetting the brush bar Official Dyson video

sounds like you have a problem with the armature. To easily check UNPLUG tool and turn the spindle by hand and listen for the clicking. It sounds like it may be a raised commutator bar. You can also remove the brushes and look into the brush tube with a flashlight and look for a major discoloration of the bars or one that is raised.
could be a couple things. UNPLUG tool and remove one handle half and see if it is jammed up with lambswool from the bonnet. It can get under the brushes causing the erratic power. If thoroughly clean the entire motor housing and then remove and check the brushes for wear. Let me know if you need more assistance.
Thick line appear on screen because of devective buffer pcb, open and clean the conector may solve that problem. But it's not only from buffer pcb, panel itself can cause line.
My suggestions is, clean the buffer pcb conector with brush, if still not working, you may try to replace buffer PCB. But it still not work, panel must be changed.
could be lambs wool under the brushes. If you are comfortable with disassembly unplug tool and remove the brush caps, check for continuity from the cord to the brush holders. If none then you have to move backwards, then you have a problem possibly with stuck brushes and the tool would need completely cleaned. Let me know if you need more asistance
116 generally indicates you are using a KENMORE???? If so this is a SEARS catalogue number for their cross reference , not a model number....
So assuming that I will take a stab here The problem you describe is generally caused by a slipping belt, in an upright vac or power head. When you lower the handle the weight is relieved from the head of an the vac and so the brush will turn more freely. Take your model # to SEARS and pick up 2 fresh belts, one for now and one for future. < Remove the lower cover,looking for screws on the underside and pull the brush roll out. Clean the hair and **** out of the ends of the brush under its bearing caps, while watching for spacer washers. Spray WD40 on the brush shaft and wipe away excess with a rag.Then reinstall the new belt in reverse order. Pay special attention the how the lower panel is inserted when removing to change the belt. Quite often these housings have a lip which seats into the bumper area of a vac. Please post back with more info
