Question about Dyson DC23ACTUSC Bagless Canister Cyclonic Vacuum
Dyson DC23 canister vacuum turbine head does not spin, with red stopper pushed in or out. Brush is clean, and if the rubber 'u' gasket is covered slightly it spins regularly. When you uncover it the brush stops. We have fixed this temporarily with a thin piece of a furniture foot pad stuck to the inside of the turbine head cover, but the 'u' gasket gets clogged VERY easily this way and we have to clean it out every 60 seconds or so of normal vacuuming. All the filters have been cleaned and are in good condition.

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.

That means that the belt is stretched and can't turn the brush against the resistance of the carpet. Here is a link for the
instructions on how to change the belt and a link for the belt you need:

SOURCE: The spinning brush isn't moving
Belt may be off the motor spindle, with the vacuum off try turning the brush by hand, does it turn freely or can you feel the resistance of the motor?

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.
