The cord to my window blinds accidentally got sucked up by my Dyson DC07. Is there a way to get the cord out without cutting the cord?


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

This would depend on exactly where the blind cord is stuck. If it's wrapped around the rotating brush bar you should be able to retrieve it by removing the soleplate and unwinding it - this should prevent you needing to cut it.

DC07's soleplate is quick and easy to remove - just use a coin to undo the catches which hold it in place for easier access to the brush bar:

Tip

Cordless Shark Vacuum Brush Bar Stops Working


My cordless Shark Vacuum brush bar would stop working each time after a few minutes of use. I was getting ready to throw the vacuum cleaner away, but decided to pull the bottom cover and check it first. I did the following modification and now it works great!

Just a few notes before attempting this tip: You need to be carefulafter this modification if you see the brush bar stop as this couldmean the bar is really jammed and there is a risk of the brush barmotor burning out. Most of the time disabling any fuse or circuit breaker is a very bad idea and could ruin equipment and even cause a fire. In the case of this tip, only consider the modification if you areready to get rid of the Shark because of the brush bar problem. Another option is to replace the circuit breaker, however consideringthe time and money involved vs. the cost of the vacuum cleaner it mayor may not be worth it to you. I did this modification to my cordlessShark about 4 months ago, and have had no further problems with it. I takes about 15 minutes to do this modification using a screw driver and wire cutters.

1. With the vacuum cleaner off, check the brush bar by manually rotating is with you hand. It should not be jammed or very difficult to turn. If so, remove the brush bar and clean it. Try the vacuum again. If you still have a problem with the brush bar stopping, proceed to next step.
2. Remove bottom cover around brush bar / motor.
3. There are two wires going to the brush bar motor, one wire includes a small circuit breaker.
4. Clip the circuit breaker out of the wire and reconnect the wire straight to the motor.
5. Re-install bottom cover.

Why won't brushes move on Commercial Carpet Pro Vacuum Cleaner


Luvumuch48tj:

Unplug the vacuum and lay it upside down on some newspaper. Remove the sole plate (bottom plate) with a screwdriver. Pull straight up on the brushes (called a beater bar) and remove the beater bar and belt. Remove the end caps and bearings from the ends of the beater bar (it may take a 2-grunt pull, or CAREFULLY pry the end caps and bearings from the beater bar with a screwdriver) Don't stab your hand with the screwdriver... That HURTS! Once you have the bearings and end caps off, remove the hair, carpet fibers and other gunk from the ends of the beater bar, end caps and bearings. Dribble a little rubbing alcohol on the bearings in the end caps and spin the bearings to clean them... keep dribbling alcohol in the bearings until the alcohol draining from the bearings is clear. Dry the bearings until there is no alcohol in them. Now would be a good time to check the opening in the vacuum head and the hose going into the body of the vacuum for clogs. Reinstall the bearings and end caps on the beater bar and reinstall the beater bar with a new belt in the machine. Reinstall the sole plate. Your machine should run like new.

Bought clearance item Sunday just found out the brush bar was motorized it turms only when i move the vacum back and fourth it should turn on its own right ? I have very little suction from the bottom the...


This appears to be a loose connection. The below post was answered by highntools a while ago. It probably is related to you problem. That is why moving it back and forth makes it go on.
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.

There have been several people who reported loose or burnt wires to be the culprit for the brush bar not working. The DC15 does not use a belt, but a motor that is control by the circuit board. And I really believe that in your instance, the problem is a loose wire between the circuit board and the brush motor.

I have a dyson upright and he beater brush is not turning


There are four possible reasons for the problem. We will take them from the easiest to fix to the hardest.

1. The manual clutch is not engaged. On the bottom right side of the vaccum is the manual clutch knob. Be sure it is rotated all the way forward. The clutch should now engage when the handle is lowered from the upright position to the vacuumig position.

2. The brush bar is entangled with debris keeping it from turning. Turn the vacuum over, remove the brush bar cover by using a coin to turn the screw like pinions a quarter turn counter-clockwise. Remove any hair, carpet fibers or other items wrapped around the brush bar. Disengage the manual clutch by turning it toward the back of the vacuum. Try turning the brush bar by hand to see that it moves freely.

3. The brush bar is broken. While you have the brush bar cover removed, inspect the brush bar for any cracks or other signs of damage. The frequency of a damaged or defective brush bar is higher than most people may think. If damaged, the brush bar will need to be replaced.

4. The clutch assebly is not functioning properly. In that case, it would be best to have a service tech handle the matter. If you want to inspect the clutch or even consider replacing it yourself, this link may be of interest: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7_CtaFcc5HU

Hope I've been of some help.

Motorized brush bar not turning on Dyson Vacuum


Apparent common failure is that either the thin yellow and or blue motor drive wires that run from the LH side of the vacuum where the "control board" is located down into the hinge / ball area become stretched and then fray and eventually break. Happened to my Dyson twice. First repaired under warranty, second took about 20 minutes. You need a Torx screwdriver to remove the LH panel ( 4 screws) and also an access panel (2 screws) at the side of the ball which permits access to the blue / yellow wire connectors. I replaced with a new wire and connectors having fed the wires through the access hole making sure sure enough wire was available for the movement of the handle. Also ensure that when the covers are replaced they do not trap any wires underneath.

Bar doesn't turn unless vacuum is pushed.


Oh for crying out loud! That button has been there since day one but I NEVER looked at it! I guess I thought is there to be symetrical! I also sucked up carpet thread. I was okay for a while but when I then sucked up my dustcloth the brush quit. Usually this stuff happens right before the guests are due so at least this time I got to fix it without pressure!
