    Just started use my dyson dc07 it is new but is very noisy after my dc04 broke down.

    Your dc04 breaking down is unlikely to be causing the excessive noise of your new dc07 unless you've trying to vacuum up the dc04 with the dc07??
    It may be that the operating noise of a dc04 is lower that that of a dc07 however if the noise is excessive then you should get it replaced by the vendor.

    The belt had come off my dyson DC04 which explained the loss of suction. I put it back on but now it's making a terrible noise and a burning smell. The belt is very hot as well as the spindle and bits...

    Replace the belt with a new one. Once it's damaged it will never work properly again. Make sure that all traces of the old belt are removed before fitting the new one.

    Also check that the brush bar rotates freely when the belt has been removed. If not, remove it and clear out any hair, cotton or other debris which is preventing it from rotating freely.

    How do I replace the belts on a Dyson DC04 purple

    That model has a clutch unit from which the two drive belts are located. It is a technical job to strip that unit down to change the belts, so the easier solution if you have a snapped belt, is to replace the clutch unit (that comes with belts on it). A recycled one represents better value for money, and you can get one here: Dyson DC04 clutch unit.

    Fit new belt to clutch on dyson DC04

    Bad news regarding all Dyson's. You can't replace just the belt your self. You have to purchase a new belt assembly which includes the gears. And it wont be cheap. I would call it a design flaw but i am sure that dyson calls it a profit scheme.

    Brushes not going round

    The brushes on my dyson have stopped going round. I have checked it and they move freely by hand. The belt is intact. What could the problem be? The Hoover is about 10 to 12 years old.
    My dyson is a dc04

    I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
    One of the main problems with vacuums are that the flat belts on the vacuums stretch and should be changed every 4 to 6 months or 3 or 4 times a year – you can tell by taking off the belt or belts on the vacuums and compare them to the old belts on the vacuum the new belts will fix inside of the old belts and you will be able to see the difference on how much they have stretched – if the belt is a geared belt – they stretch as well but should be changed about one a year – the cost is not that expensive and you cleaning will improve almost double – this also applies for the Dyson DC04 and the Hoover vacuum as well – some of the Hoover vacuums have two (2) belts and they both should be changed @ the same time.
