My dyson beater bar is spinning but no longer touches carpet surface to pick up hair or thread .There is still plenty of suction. If I ever so lightly place my hand on the top of the beater brush it works...


Brush rolls wear out and usually need replaced every few years. The DC33 model has a clutch with belts which could also be slipping. I would replace both of them

A burning smell when in use


Martinsivyer:

Turn the machine upside-down and see if you can turn the beater/brush bar with your hand. You should see the brush turning and feel the resistance from the motor. The brush/beater bar may be binding, and what you are smelling is the motor shaft spinning against the rubber belt. You can remove the base plate and check the brush/beater bar with the belt disconnected. If the brush/beater bar is difficult to turn, you need to remove the brush/beater bar and clean the bearings at each end, Remove any threads that are wound around the beater bar ends so that the bearings roll easily and smoothly. Check to see that your machine is not set too low for the surface that you are bacuuming. While you have the belt disconnected, check thi inside surface to see if the motor shaft has been spinning against the belt, you'll see the damage to the inside circumfrence of the belt.

Beater brush on hoover windtunnel dual v not turning


....As Ray Sabourin said, the front beater bar drive is a problem area. On my Windtunnel Dual V, the front gear overheated and upon cooling, the melted plastic on the gear fused to the gearbox housing! It was a pain to remove the gearbox, but once it was removed, I managed to separate the fused gear, turn down the damage on the gear in a lathe and machined out the damage on the case with a vertical mill. I then lubed everything with machine oil and put it all back together. It fixed it and saved about $75.00 because the gearbox is not available without also buying the electric motor that drives it. -A Difficult fix that could not be done without high mechanical skills. :-)

We keep changing belt on tesco vcu007 but it breaks again as soon as we turn it on


I am unfamiliar with this make and model, but assuming it is an upright vacuum cleaner type design, something must be stopping the brush/beater bar from rotating. When it is then switched on, this immeadiately places a huge strain on the belt which then snaps (quite often accompanied by a burning rubber smell)

If you still have the user manual, this should show you how to remove the bar, clean it and check for any foreign objects preventing the bar from turning. If not, beater bar removal isnt normally too difficult to work out.

Hope that helps.

WHEN I TURN MY VACUME ON IT SOUNDS FINE, WHEN UPRIGHT. WHEN I GO TO MOVE IT TO HOOVER IT MAKES A SCREAMING NOISE. CAN U TELL ME WHAT IS WRONG PLEASE AND HOW TO FIX. THANK YOU


When the vaccum is upright, the beater bar is not engaged. When you tilt the handle back, the clutch engages and the beater bar begins to turn.

There are two likely possibilities for the "screaming noise". First, and most likely, is that the beater bar cannot turn because of a build up of debris or the beater bar is broken. In eaither case, the clutch belt is spinning on the non-moving beater bar causing the noise. Remove the beater bar, inspect for hair, carpet fibers or other items wrapped around the bar. Also inspect for cracks in the plasitc at the ends of the bar. Clean or replace the bar as needed.

The second possible cause is the clutch assembly. If you were unable to fix the problem with the first solution, it is time to take the vacuum in for service as replacing the clutch is somewhat difficult.

Here is a YouTube video link that will walk you through the process of removing the beater bar as well as the clutch if you decide to go it on your own: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7_CtaFcc5HU

Hope this helps.

Belt replacement


It's a fairly simple job. The belt just loops over the end of the beater bar and motor shaft. Need to take the cover off the beater bar housing to get to it. Most difficult part is stretching the belt while putting the beater bar back in the housing.

It has no suction...last couple of times while using the vacuum it would cut itself off. If I tried to use it the next day it would do the same thing


Hi,
You vacuum is probably plugged up. Flip it over, beater bar up, and remove the plate that surrounds the beater bar. The beater bar needs to come out next. If the belt is good, it will be a little hard to remove. The beater bar sits in sockets that then go ilto the vacuum frame, so note how they come out as you ease the beater bar out and slip the belt off of the bar. There's a cavity behind the beater bar where the vacuum picks up debris. Stuff hangs up there, and you'll need to remove whatever is plugging you up. While you have everything open, give it a general cleaning. Remove anything wound around the beater bar, etc., and reassemble the vacuum in the reverse order.
Best regards --W/D-- -- please feel free to rate this solution - thanx!

Howdo I replace dyson belt??


Replacing the belt on the DC-17 is not complicated at all. Once I understood how, the process took about 5 minutes. My best suggestion is to call Dyson and they will quickly and cheerfully walk you through it without making you feel stupid. Here is what they told me: 1. Remove the bottom plate that covers the beater bar, using a flat head screwdriver; pull the beater bar out so that it is only attached by the belt. 2. Use the flat head screwdriver to wedge the belt off the beater bar. It takes a little bit of wiggling, but it is not difficult. 3. Once the belt is free of the beater bar, use the screwdriver to unhook it from the gear that is attached to the motor inside. 4. With the new belt, repeat the steps in reverse, hooking the new belt onto the motor gear, over the beater bar, etc.

How to change belt on this model?


Changing the belt on this nifty little machine only seems difficult until you find all eight of the screws that hold the entire assembly together, and the nice thing is you get to totally ignore the torx style screws altogether.

There are two screws in the bottom of the unit just forward and to either side of the beater brush, remove 'em.

Flip the vacuum over and remove the two screws holding the top in place. One is located under the removable suction hose near the right rear wheel, the other is in plain sight over the left rear wheel.

After you pop the top off you'll see the dark clear plastic housing that covers the beater brush and belt assembly. It is held in place by four more screws, three on the back side of the beater and one on the front side in the center of the machine.

Change your belt, clean your brush and tell your kids to get back to work while you take something out for dinner and open a cold one.
