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

SOURCE: Brush stopped spinning

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.

    Dyson brush roller spins intermittently. it starts out good but then stops


    Do you have a burning rubber smell at the same time? Turn the machine over and remove the bottom cover. Hook a loop of cord under the belt, pull it up wards and pull the brush out. Remove one end cap and pull the spindle out from the other end. Remove the fluff and hair that is tied around each end.
    This shows quite well.

    Put the brush back and see if that fixes it. If not, then you need to change the two belts, and possibly the clutch. The same guy at Vacuum spot shows clutch servicing, but you may wish to get a professional to do it. How to check the Dyson DC04 Roller Brush Bearings

    Dyson DC25 brush won't spin when touching the floor. If I lift it off the floor it spins, once it touches the floor it stops. Any idea what the problem is?


    I can think of three things that could be wrong.

    The easiest one is that the brush has hair and fluff wrapped around its bearing. This happened to me and was causing a burning rubber smell. Turn it over and remove the base plate. Lift the belt by putting a piece of cord under it and slide the brush out. Remove one end of the brush and slide the spindle out. Clean all the hair out and reassemble.

    The internal drive belt is worn, or the nylon bush that it runs on.

    The clutch is worn out.

    The last two are not as easy to fix as the main drive belt is enclosed in the centre of the clutch. There are videos though that show you the process. Have a read and a watch, but try my first tip first.

    How do I disassemble a Dyson DC26 Carbon Fibre Turbine Head (920545-02)?


    Hi Kristian, it's Jack at Dyson.

    It's very unlikely that an internal component would have broken after the blockage was removed. Instead, it's worth checking that the plunger is in the correct position. If it's pushed inwards, this will shut off the brush bar, so make sure it's pulled out:


    disassemble-dyson-dc26-carbon-fibre-xjczme1b25opy5c2wdvfnwhk-4-0.jpg

    If the plunger won't stay in the out position when you switch on your vacuum, this indicates there may still be a blockage within the Turbine head which needs to be cleared.

    This should resolve the issue, but if you find it doesn't help, please get in touch so our experts can provide further assistance. Please be aware that dismantling the Turbine head any further than is shown in the User guide can void your Dyson warranty, meaning future replacement parts or repairs could be chargeable.

    You can reach our experts by calling the Dyson Customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

    My dyson DC26 power button has to be held down to work


    Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

    I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your DC26's on/off button. You should not have to continually hold this down for the machine to work, so it sounds as if your vacuum may need a repair. If you can get in touch with our experts directly we'd be happy to discuss your option, and we can also confirm whether or not a repair would be covered under your Dyson guarantee.

    When you have your DC26 to hand, please give the Dyson Customer Helpline a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

    We'll look forward to speaking with you.

    Carpet brush does not work on dc26


    With this model, the most likely cause is that the brush has become clogged and won't spin freely. Unplug the unit and test spinning the brush bar by hand. If you really can't get spin, follow instructions like these (
    Dyson DC26 DC35 DC36 DC38 DC44 DC45 DC47 Clearing the brush bar Official... that are straight from Dyson). Make sure you get the very ends fiber-free. It should spin better now.

    Good Luck!

    Why is my dyson26 is scratching my wooden floors when brush is turned off?


    The heads are designed to be used with the brush on hard floors. On the bottom of the brush head there are either Metal or plastic pads. If you use this on a tiled or hard floor without the brushes, these can wear and become sharp in places.. This scratches the floor!!

    Dyson dc 24 brush works intermittently


    Hi Chris, it's Jack at Dyson.

    DC24's brush bar is designed to shut itself off for protection if something jams it. Please follow the steps shown in the video attached to remove any threads or hair from the brush bar and end cap, and to check the cleaner head for any obstructions. Once you've done this you should be able to reset the machine.

    If you'd like further advice from our experts after you've given this a try, please call the Dyson customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), or 1-877-397-6622 (CA). If a repair or a replacement part is needed, we'll be happy to confirm if this is covered under your machine's 5-year warranty.
