Question about Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
Vacuum has a good tight belt, however the belt does not rotate when the vacuum is turned on, therefore the brushbar does not move. Help?
Did you make sure that the dial is set to carpet if you have a dyson animal then the dial will be purple and on the right side or the vacuum make sure it is in the carpet posistion

1. Plastic Burning Smell - This means that there is friction in a plastic part of your Dyson. The only place this will be coming from is the BrushBar. The brushbar has jammed somehow. The smell arises as the rubber belt is still trying to turn the plastic brushbar but the brushbar is not moving. To solve the problem you will need to unscrew the soleplate using a 2 pence piece, this is done by inserting the 2 pence piece into the 3 plastic screws on the underneath of the Dyson. Turn the screws a quarter anticlockwise. You can then remove the soleplate. You will probably see that there is a build up of debris by the brushbar. This is more common on The Animal version as pet hair mixed with dust gets stuck in here, especially if the machine has been used on a damp or wet surface. So clean this area out and then try manually rotating the brush bar in each direction. If you have been using the machine for too long with the burning smell then it is likely that your brushbar will be melted where the belt attaches to it. If this is the case then you will need to get a new brushbar. If the brushbar is not too damaged check that the belt has not broken. If the belt has not broken then replace the soleplate. Turn the screws a quarter in a clockwise direction. Should your belt be broken then please re-post and we will show you how to sort this. Thank you

If your brushbar wont turn and the belt is definatley fitted correctly then there is a problem with the brushbar itself.
If the brushbar is old then they can be affected internally by clogging up.
Assuming you have the "Clutch" version of Dyson. This is one that has a spiral brushbar.
There are 2 types of brushbar, 1 for the Clutch Version and 1 for the Non Clutch version.
Either way you will need to replace the brushbar. Please watch the video....
