SOURCE: rotating brush will not turn on my Dyson DC07

Yes I had the same problem on my animal Dysom. There is a button on the top of the dysom that turns the cacuum on. Right beside that button is another one that turns on and off the brush!!! Good luck!!! I accidently one day bumped that button and couldn't get my brush to work but after troubleshooting it, that was my solution.

SOURCE: The brush bar on my Dyson DC17 stopped turning.

If this model has a brush control - i.e a roller at the side of the model which controls brush to spin or not, then its a protected brush model - therefore even if the drive belt is intact the Dyson would have to be repaired by a service personnel or professional. The brush protection isn't able to be taken apart and sounds like it may well have slipped off due to tension.

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

If you've had the brush out to clean it you need to re-set the trip switch which is a red button at the right side of the brush simply press it in till it clicks.

    I have a Lindhaus powerhead MOD.PB12e SN123463. The powerhead turns on and the roller starts turning but after a couple of seconds it starts sounding like something is not letting the roller turn properly...


    A common problem is for hair to get wrapped around and forced into the end bearings which causes the motor to work harder or drive belt to slip. Cleaning the hair out can be a short term fix but new bearings might be needed. It's also a good idea to replace the drive belt at the same time as the slipping belt is probably not going to perform well even with new bearings.

    When I change back to upright cleaner I can never get the belt to work


    Hi Andy, Please forgive me, but I have to say this just in case. Make sure you put the powerhead on the machine, BEFORE you turn the handle to line up the green arrows. If the machine is a few years old, it may be because the belt has stretched, and no longer holds enough tension when dissengaged, and falls off inside. If you have the shampooer attachment, try borrowing the belt from that, and put it on the vacuum powerhead to see if it still happens. If it doesn't, then there's your culprit. I hope this helped. I'll check back to see. Good luck!

    The powerhead on my Hoover Duros will not keep running. If I push the on/off switch it will come back on sometimes, other times when I push it it turns the whole thing off as its supposed to do.


    I just had the same problem with my hoover duros, the vacuum was running fine but the powerhead kept going off. I would make a sweep with it and powerhead would be running and then next sweep powerhead would shut off. I had tried checking connection and belt, etc. I thought it was the powerhead. But then I found the problem. On the duros there are 2 pieces of wands that hook powerhead to hose on canister. They both connected and clicked in fine but I decided to check them separately. I hooked just one piece to hose and powerhead and then turned it on and then I did the other piece. ta-dah! that's what it was...it was only one section of the wand. When I hooked them up separately, one piece the powerhead worked totally fine and vacuumed like normal. When I removed that piece of wand and tried the second piece (actually the bottom section when both are hooked together) the powerhead did not work at all. So I just need to get a new section of wand. Hope this helps!

    I have the Dyson DC23 with a Motorhead. Recently the motorhead has been cutting out but now doesn't work at all. We have checked for blockages and anything that may be tangled in it. It all looks...


    My Dyson DC21 powerhead shuts off on its own. There is no blockage, I have reset the brushbar several times and cleaned the filters. I am frustrated! I want this problem fixed, I have had my vacuum well over 5 years :(

    Remove bottom of electrolux prolux upright vacuum. Hose is clogged.


    You shouldn't have to remove disassemble the powerhead.
    Lay vacuum on it's front. Between the tank and the powerhead is a black flex hose. Pull the end straight out from the powerhead. Then unscrew the tube from the tank using a clockwise turn. Remove the tube and visually check for clogs and splits. Clear or replace as needed.
    If there's a clog in the powerhead behind the brush, this can be cleared using a wooden spoon handle or similar object.
    If there's no clog in either place, there's a couple other possibilities. First, turn the vacuum back upright, open the hose flap, turn vacuum on, and place hand over opening to check for suction.
    If there's a lack of suction, the bag needs replaced, the afterfilter beneath the bag needs cleaned, or the motor needs replaced.
    If there is suction, put a coin in the opening inside the port and to the right as you're viewing the front of the vacuum. The coin should drop to the floor. A clog in thes section is unusual, but can happen.
    If there is still no suction, take the vacuum to the nearest authorized Aerus Electrolux store for free diagnosis.

    Machine stops working after about 15mins of use.Doesn't feel hot and fuse not blown.Any ideas ??


    This is most likely due to a dirty filter. Cleaning:

    Turn off and unplug the machine.
    Press the release button on top of the back of the powerhead.
    Remove the filter housing.
    Separate filter from housing.
    Rinse thoroughly the following items in cold water: foam, cage, and cloth.
    Repeat until the water runs clear.
    Air dry for at least 12 hours before reinstalling. Make sure it's completely dry.

    Powerhead Keeps Shutting Off


    Open up the power head and check the toothed corners where the power head sits - it sounds like thread has caught up at the sides which can only be removed by opening up the powerhead to clean it.

    Very likely it's the cord at the nozzle neck. These cords flex when you vacuum and they often break internally where the cord goes into the neck. Turn the vacuum on and wiggle the cord at the powerhead and see if the powerhead comes on and off. If this happens, then you will have to replace the cord.
    On some of the early models, the receptacle in the hose, where it plugs into the top of the wands, will break away from the plastic pins it sits in, and the receptacle will slide back into the handle, which means that it will not plug into the powerhead connection when you connect the hose. You can check this by looking at the end of the hose and observing if the receptacle is sitting flush with the opening it sits in. If it is pushed back, it will not make a complete connection with the powerhead cord that is sitting at the top of the wands.
