If the noise is coming from the motor area it could be your motor is bad.

SOURCE: Dyson has lost suction and loud noise from base(?),

I had the same problem, from right out of the box. Now that I just threw mine out, I see this site that indicates there's a fix for it:
http://ths.gardenweb.com/forums/load/cleaning/msg0415060828462.html

And search for other sites isung "dyson grinding" or similar.

Since I was an early adopter (had one as soon as they came stateside), I did not have the benefit of countless others having the same problem, I just attributed it to a junky design, since so much else about this vacuum was poorly designed, like the seals, hoses, etc.

Give them a call, and good luck! I might rescue mine from the heap and do the same.

SOURCE: roller does not turn

Hello,

When a Dyson DC07 makes this horrible grinding noise, it can only mean one of three things.

The Dyson DC07 uprights use a clutch mechanism to control the brush spinning when you change the floor / carpet switch. When you hear this grinding noise, it's actually the clutch slipping because it can not spin the roller brush. Most other uprights use a belt to spin the roller brush, and if something is stuck in the roller brush it will cause the belt to break. Dyson's however will make that awful grinding noise rather then breaking the belt, and will only make that noise if the roller brush can not spin.

When you hear this noise on a Dyson, it can only be 1 of 3 things. Either your clutch mechanism itself has gone bad, or the roller brush itself was not properly put back into the vacuum, or the brush itself has gone bad.

I'll be happy to walk you through step by step on how to diagnosis this problem and find out which one of these two parts is bad on your vacuum2_bing.gif.

Step 1. Make sure the vacuum is unplugged. Then turn the vacuum upside down so that the brushes are facing up. It's easiest if you put the head of the vacuum on top of a bench, or counter top. This is how the vacuum should look:

b45ef25.jpg
Step 2. You see on the bottom of the vacuum 3 plastic screws that are usually the same color as the vacuum cleaner2_bing.gif. If you're vacuum is purple, the screws will also be purple. Use a flat head screwdriver, and turn each of the 3 screws a half of a turn, counter clockwise to loosen then. After each screw has been turned (you don't need to remove the completely, just a half of a turn is all), simply pull upwards on the bottom plate to remove it.

Step 3. You should now be able to see the roller brush exposed. You'll now need to remove the roller brush. This will take some patience, and some work in order to get this brush out of the vacuum. There is a special tool that has been designed to help you get the brush out easier. I would try getting the brush out first before buying this special tool. The easiest way is to use a flat head screw driver and pry the belt up while pulling up and out on the brush. With some patience and some maneuvering, you'll be able to get the brush out of the vacuum. Here's where you should put the flat head screw driver on the brush:

9665ae3.jpg
Step 4. Once you get the belt out of the vacuum cleaner, it's time to test it. Use your finger tips to hold just the end caps on the very end of the roller brush. While holding just the end caps, use your thumbs to try and spin the roller brush. Does the brush spin freely? It should rotate completely several times on each spin. If the brush doesn't spin, or you feel some kind of resistance to the brush spinning, then this indicates that your roller brush has gone bad. Here's a picture of how to test the brush:

If the roller brush went bad, then you'll need to purchase a new one. Here's a direct link to the roller brush your machine uses on our website GoVacuum:
http://www.govacuum.com/dysondc07.html


If the brush however was able to spin freely, and it spun multiple times, this indicates that most likely the brush was not put back in properly, or it could be a little more serious of problem in the clutch itself has gone bad. The clutch replacement repair is a much longer, more challenging repair to do. There is a very helpful video on how to replace the clutch below so that you may follow step by step instructions on how to change it. It was really helpful for me the first time I did this repair.

I think more likely however it's probably that the brush was not put back in properly, and this caused the brushes not to be able to spin, which would cause the clutch to make that horrible noise. Make sure that the roller brush is pictured like the brush above, you may also want to make sure that the bottom plate is put on correctly, this could also prevent the brush from spinning:

Here's a picture of the WRONG way to install the bottom plate. Notice the gap in between the two housings:

Here's another picture, that is the RIGHT way to install the soleplate:

If you need to replace the clutch, here's a direct link to the clutch your Dyson DC07 uses on our website:
http://www.govacuum.com/dydcclasfore.html

Here's the video on how to replace the clutch:


When you hear that grinding noise, it can only be one of these three problems. This clutch mechanism was so problematic that Dyson removed it on the second series of the DC07 models. I hope that this repair was helpful in diagnosing your problem. If you have any questions about the diagnosing, or the clutch change, please feel free to use the Clarification Request form here on the Fixya repair page.

Are the brushes worn down too far? As they wear the springs tension gets weaker. The brushes can also get stuck inside the channel they slide in. Could also be a buildup of dust etc inside and around the internal fan or commutator, etc.

Roomba560 goes a few feet hits something get stuck and turns off


Does the Roomba say anything after it hits something? Mine usually says to reposition it or somesuch message. Mine will run up on a towel left on the floor, get stuck, say to reposition it and then if we don't, he shuts off. The thing with Roombas is they have to be cleaned after one or two runs. I think that's probably your problem. Take the filter compartment off, empty it out, pop the filter off and shake that into the trash. Press the two yellow plastic (on mine) release latches and take the brushes off. Remove the hair, thread and dental floss wrapped around the brushes and caught around the ends. We just added another dog to our house and I have to clean Roomba at least 33% more often now. Get a thin screw driver and insert it in the side to pop out the axle attached to the black and white roller ball. Hair gets trapped in here and the ball can't turn as well. Wipe off the two sensors on either side of this ball.

Why wont brushes rotate


Hi, it's Allie from Crucial Vacuum!

There are several things that may affect the performance of your unit and cause this to happen. The roller brush may stop working properly because of the belts, the roller brush or the filters in your unit.

Belt are recommended to be changed every 3 months, not replacing the belts can cause them to stretch out and the roller brush won't work properly. If the belts are in optimal conditions and do not need to be replaced, this may have been caused by your unit's rollerbrush.

Roller brushes can be cleaned and maintained to avoid frequent replacement. Make sure that there are no hair strands or debris tangled up in the brush roll's bristles, this may cause the roller to not work. Monthly care of your brush roller will help to keep you vacuum working properly.

Last, make sure to check your filters, if the filters have not been washed (if washable) or have not been replaced, it can affect the suction and performance of your unit.

The vacuum is making a noise like something is stuck when it is in the carpet position but not when in the floor position. I can't find anything that is stuck in the areas that I can see. I have cleaned...


As far as the roller brush goes, yes, it does need to be cleaned. Follow the directions to remove it and clean as best you can of all debris. On both ends of the roller brush there will be two "holders" of sort that connect the brush to the frame of the vacuum. These need to be able to turn freely around the brush. Clean them as best you can and spray some WD40 in between the roller and both the holders. Work the holders around by hand to be sure they move freely. I would also check to see if your belts are snug.
Please let me know if this does not help solve your problems. Paul

Hoover mach 5 turns off after 10 minutes of use


I have had problems with the belts on my Mach 5 overheating (smell of burning rubber) and also with the motor overheating and shutting down.
I learned the hard way that one of the issues might be that the roller/brush on the bottom of the unit has a metal bearing inside the roller/brush that can become clogged with hair (both human and pet hair) which effects performance of the unit.
Another item to check is if your dust filter is not plugged up which is located behind the removable dirt cup. This is the cup that you remove that collects the dust/dirt/hair from your floor. Take the removable dirt cup out by depressing the gold button and then look behind where the dirt cup sits for filter. This can be cleaned out by washing it with soap and water in the sink but make sure you let it dry overnight before placing it back in the machine. This probably causes some of the overheating when not enough clean air is passing through the machine.
It’s fairly easy to fix.
Lay the vacuum on the floor so that you can see the roller/brush. Then remove the phillip head screws that hold the protective plastic plate over the roller/brush. (There are about 6 screws that hold this plastic protective plate in place) Also, you will be removing the (1) screw that also holds the plastic plate over the belts. There are (2) belts that you can remove and when in doubt replace these (2) belts for around $9.00.
Once you have the protective plastic plate off that covers the roller/brush disconnect the belt is around the roller. Take the roller and cut off any hair that is wrapped around the roller. Next, grab the roller by each end and twist the ends caps and (1) of the ends will unscrew. Once you have unscrewed one of the ends remove any hair or dust that is trapped under this cap. (Be careful not to lose the small metal washer that sit on top of the bearing)You will notice under this cap is a metal bearing that can become clogged and jammed with hair. The hair should come out fairly easy and allow the brush to spin fairly easy once you have screwed the end caps back in place test that it spins freely. If it doesn’t spin freely replace the roller/brush with a new one for about $23.00.
When you put the belts back on the thick rubber one (Belt # 40201-271) has probably become stretched and should be replaced for about $3.00. The small diameter belt that goes over the roller/brush probably does not usually need to be replaced and does not usually fit very tight. I have heard that people will take the small roller/brush belt and turn it upside down to get a better fit.
I just did this on my Mach 5 and it runs like a new machine. I did end up replacing the roller/brush head.
Hopefully you will find this useful.

No suction using extension hose for Bissell Bagless Upright vacuum. i checked for clogs and found nothing. shannon


Check the sole plate where the beater bar is. You may have to remove the roller brush flap to get into the roller brush and then check the main dust channel beside it. Usually if there's no suction on the hose it means that:
1) The hose is blocked 2) The filters are needing cleaned / washed and dried for 24 hours or see my tips! 3) There is dust clogging after the beater bar/roller brush.
