Question about Shark Vacuums
Can not remove plate to get to beater bar
HI, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum!
If your Shark Navigator vacuum is only making a strange noise when the brush roll is turning then the two things to consider and examine would be the brush roll itself as well as the belt.
First off lets look at the brush roll itself. Right off the bat is there any noticeable debris caught in it? You're mainly looking for long carpet fibers, or even strands of hair? If so try using a scissor to cut the blockage away. Then, manually rotate the brush roll to uncover further clogs. When examining your brush roll take note of the condition of the bristles. Are they loose? If so this would be a good time to change your brush roll entirely. There should be two screws holding the plate onto your Shark Navigator. Use a screw driver to remove these screws to gain access to the brush roll and belt.
The second part to check would be your Shark Navigator's belt. With use the belt will stretch out, lessening the tension on the brush roll. Lesser tension diminishes the brush roller's turn rate and speed. So if your belt feels loose as well replace that. A general rule would be that you're going to want to replace your belt about every 6 months. And if your belt is really loose this could be causing a noise when your brush roll is active.

I have finally fixed my sister's dyson dc 15 beater bar problem. It was just 2 tiny broken wires connect to circuit board lead to the beater bar. The wires broke where they go through the black rubber gommet. You need a torx screwdriver tx 15 to remove 2 plastic covers to access the wires. When looking at the front of the vacuum, the gray covers located on the right side of the vacuum. 1 big cover with a black rubber gasket and other small gray cover is on the rotating ball area.
This my new year resolution is to warn people not to buy Dyson vacuum cleaner ( Junk) design to break down! Shame on you Dyson!!!! Save your money find good old vacuum cleaner with metal parts.
OLD IS IN NEW IS JUNK!
Happy New Year!

I just came from the repair shop. There is a recurring problem with a bearing coming out. Repair guy turned it on & said that loud noise is a symptom of that exact problem. This is a warranty item, as is the belt & on/off switch. Dyson comes with a 5 year warranty, so call their 800 number to get the name & address of an authorized repair shop.

My Dyson DC14 had no suction...see if this works...turn the Dyson upside down...there is a length of hose that connects the bottom of the vacuum to the top, careful remove one end of the hose and check for debris...mine was clogged. Removed the clog and voila...it works. Thanks for the above info on checking the hose for cracks.
