Question about Vacuums

1 Answer

Dyson dc 39

Brand new. The brush stops spinning after a minute or two from starting the machine. Debris gets stuck at the rubber flap in the head and does not pass in the tube. Will trimming that rubber flap to make the debris pass, will it affect its suction power?

If it is brand new, you should take it to a Dyson warranty repair center. They are professionals and know what to look for.

SOURCE: no suction on Roomba 560

Larger debris is usually the responsibility of the brushes. Remove the bin and run the Roomba-- are the brushes actually turning? If not, call customer support for a new cleaning head module. If so, remove the grill from the back of the bin. Make sure that the little fan inside is clean, then reinstall the bin on the Roomba and run it. If that little fan doesn't spin, your Roomba has lost vacuum suction and you need a new bin.

SOURCE: Low suction with Eureka Whirlwind 4481 Upright

Most times it is plugged at the inlet. There 2 screw on top, one on each side, in one of the holes or slots. Take top cover off, then check that inlet and hose to see if it is clogged there or not, you might replace the belt while you have cover off, part# 54312. I am sure it is stretched if it hasn't been replaced in a while. If the hose is clogged, the you will have to take off the handle, then the hose can be taken off so you can clear any clog in it.

SOURCE: spinning debris in cup

If the 2 stage filters inside the bin chamber have not been washed then they will need to be - they sound like they are clogged or somewhere there is dirt which is blocking up the system. Also check the side part duster to ensure that the airways are not clogged with dirt.

When you turn the machine on, have a look to see if the moving brush is actually spinning. Then switch off and remove the base plate to see if anything is clogged in the main dirt channel which is usually located on the left or right hand side - where the dirt goes in from the floor.

This model is based on an Electrolux model in the UK which can be notorious for clogging dust. Check the hoses at the bottom where they come from the main dust bin and the air ways to check no dust is stuck.

SOURCE: the brush bar wont spin on my dyson dc 25... i

Hi its Darran at Dyson.

Simply switch the machine off and stand it upright. Press the brush bar on/off switch once and then turn the machine back on.

When you release the machine into the vacuuming position, the brush bar should start to turn again.

If you still having problems, please contact our Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Kind regards

Hi Jyn, it's Jack at Dyson.

The rotating brush bar in DC23's Turbine head is powered by the vacuum's airflow. From what you've described, it sounds like there may be a blockage somewhere in the machine that's affecting the performance.

To locate and remove any blockages, please take a look at our online Support guide and follow the steps shown on each of the pages: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc23/dc23-animal/my-machine-is-not-working/check-telescopic-wand-step-1-turbine-head

In normal use the pre-filter should be washed at least once every 3-6 months, using cold water without detergent. Even a filter that appears to be externally clean may still need a wash as fine dust particles may be contained within the filter material. The correct method is shown in the video attached. Make sure you allow the filter to dry completely for at least 24 hours before replacing it.

We would advise against attempting to modify the Turbine head in any way, as this could cause damage not covered under guarantee. If you'd like some further advice from our experts please feel free to give us a call - our contact numbers are: 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Dyson brush wont turn


Hi There is a reset switch on your Dyson that needs to be pressed when something gets stuck in the brushes. The reset switch helps protect the motor that spins the brush from damaging if something gets stuck inside the brushes. There is a little red pole that sits up behind the brushes on the vacuum head, I believe it's on the left side of the floor head as if you were behind the machine vacuuming. Try pushing this reset switch first.

Dyson Brush Bar Always Spins


Take off the brush cover and check that the suction orifice is clear. Also check the rubber flaps at the bottom of the hose/handle holder is correctly positioned.
