Hi Roger, it's Jack at Dyson.

It would be very unusual for DC27's brush bar to need replacing in normal use. With the vacuum turned off and unplugged, turn the machine over and run a flat edge (such as the edge of a business card) across the opening of the soleplate. As long as the bristle tufts make contact with the edge of the card, the brush bar will still work effectively.

It's also worth removing any threads, hair or other debris from the brush bar to ensure it's working effectively, as shown in the illustration below. Please note it's not necessary to remove the brush bar to clean it.

If you still feel the brush bar needs replacing, our experts are best placed to offer further advice. You can reach them directly by calling on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Microwave cooking time tip

Do not be in a rush to eat the food when your buzzer sounds. Remember, that the way the microwave functions is to let the food sit for a few minutes when it is done cooking. The food continues cooking and distributes the heat evenly throughout your food. Test for doneness after the standing time.

How to change vacuum belt

You didn't specify what kind of vacuum cleaner. Most machines have a bottom plate that needs removal to access the belt. If you had to ask ( as you did ) you are probably better off taking it to a vacuum repair shop to have it done. Most vacs need to be serviced annually. A belt replacement would only cost you $10 at my shop, so it's not that much to have it done.

How long to cook chicken sausage on the George foreman

this depends on how thick the sausages are. For sausages that are about 1 - 1 1/2 inches thick it will take about 10-15 minutes. the best way to tell if a sausage is done (chicken or pork) is to insert a meat thermometer into the end of the sausage about 3 inches deep. When the meat is done it will read 160 deg F.

No suction; beater bar works. Motor does not seem to be running.

This model has a complicated trouble-shooting procedure that needs to be done by an authorized Aerus Electrolux service tech.
This is often caused by a bad relay board or a Triac. However, problems in wiring or swswiches, including the hose wiring.
I stress that this must be done by an authorized Aerus Electrolux service tech.

It is not easy to replace at all. Especially if you have little previous mechanical knowledge. The best thing to do is to take to a service center to have the install it.
I have done about ten or twelve. None of which have been a fun experience.
