Belt is broken. Not sure how to replace


1. Get a long screw driver (probably phillips head) a strip of tape.
2. Look around underneath your vac for screws... look carefully because sometimes they are sneaky and hidden in weird areas like under the wheels, etc.
3. Take screws out stick them in order on tape turned upwards. (remember how you took them out.)
4. Gently remove the bottom cover.
5. Clean and remove debris, hair, dust bunnies, rocks... whatever.
6. Determine where the belt goes, disengage the beater bar on that side (may need to unscrew something) Belt on beater bar gears. Other end of belt on motor end... then stretch belt with beater bar until it fits back in it's place and replace any screws, etc.
7. Make sure the belt is seated properly.
8. replace cover, screws... test.**

** sometimes belts require that you put a twist in them so it can transition from the motor's direction to the beater bar's direction... if you twist the wrong way... the beater bar will spit dirt out the front of the vac.. (it's bulldozing it) In that case remove cover and twist the belt the other way.

Good luck.

The beater bar will not turn


Hello rebh. Generally when the vacuum beater bar will not turn it is because the belt that turns this beater bar has broken.

That said, most of the dyson's require you to buy a beater bar assembly which includes the belt. Any vacuum cleaner repair shop will have this part. OR go to this link http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/brands-products/Dyson-Inc-Parts/Vacuum-Parts

Hopw to fit new belt


DC07s have two drivebelts that turn the brush bar - one connects the output of the motor to the clutch, the other connects the clutch to the brush bar.
You can check the latter simply by removing the sole plate and looking. Unfortunately the other belt is hidden under a plastic cover, so you cant see if it is okay or not without some dismantling. This cover is not easy to remove and requires a Torx driver to under the securing screws.
If, after removing the cover, the other belt is okay, if your brush bar isn't turning then you have a faulty clutch. New clutches are available on eBay reasonably cheaply, but again good tools and DIY skills are required.
Have a look atwww.dysonmedic.com which has some excellent info on dismantling and repairing a DC 07.

The beater bar quick working.


Remove the bottom plate and take out the beater bar plus the drive belt. Inspect the drive belt for burn marks or other damage. The bar itself is usually bound up at the bearings on each end with string, hair, and thread. Pull the bearings off, then clean the pin ends and interiors of the fixed bearings with a Q-tip and some WD-40. Oil the bearings lightly with 3-1, or similar, then reassemble the bar as it was before using a new belt if required. This process is required from time to time as the debris accumulates through use. Hope this helps!

Have a Dyson DC07 vacuum. The beater bar won't turn. Belt is good.


DC07s have two belts - one connects the output of the motor to the clutch, the other connects the clutch to the brush bar.
Unfortunately one of the belts is hidden under a plastic cover, so you cant see if it is okay or not without some dismantling. This cover is not easy to remove and requires a Torx driver to under the securing screws.
If both belts are okay, you have a faulty clutch. Replacement clutches are avaible reasonably cheaply on eBay, but again requires Torx drivers to remove and good DIY skills.
Have a look at www.dysonmedic.com, but unless you have access to such tools, probably time to call Dyson or a Vacuum repairer.

Brush won't turn but belt is not broken


DC07s have two belts - one connects the output of the motor to the clutch, the other connects the clutch to the brush bar.
I suspect the belt you are to refering to is the one from the clutch to the brush bar. Unfortuenately the other belt is hidden under a plastic cover, so you cant see if it is okay or not without some dismantling. This cover is not easy to remove and requires a Torx driver to under the securing screws.
If, after removing the cover, the other belt is okay, then you have a faulty clutch. New clutches are available on eBay2_bing.gif reasonably cheaply, but again good tools and DIY skills are required.

Trying to change belt


The procedure for changing a belt will vary depending on the type of vacuum you have. However, I can give you some general guidelines. Unplug the vacuum and turn it over. Generally there will be some type of cover you need to remove to expose the beater bar. This cover can sometimes be removed by taking out screws and sometimes there are plastic tabs you need to push in with a screwdriver to loosen it. Once this cover is removed you will probably see the broken belt. You need to buy a replacement belt of the same size. You can probably look up your vacuum online to find out what size you need. You can also take the old belt to the store and match it up with the available new belts. Once you have a new belt you need to remove the beater bar. The ends of the beater bar will probably fit into some type of indentations or slots. Pull on the beater bar and it should slide out. Place the new belt around the beater bar. Also hook the belt around the metal motor stub located near the rear and to one side of the exposed underside of the vacuum. Now insert the beater bar back into its original slots. This will require pulling hard on the beater bar to stretch the belt forward and away from the metal motor stub. Replace the cover and you’re good to go. I hope this helps you out

Need to change the belt on my kirby model 519, assuming this is the problem since the beater bar is not turning and I can smell burning rubber


The beater bar is jammed--usually from thread, string, and hair that is wound up on the bar and particularly on the bar end bearings. The bearings themselves usually require cleaning and re-oiling. The belt may be damaged sufficiently to require replacement as well. Make sure to install the new belt exactly as the old one came off. Make sure that the air passage from the bar area back into the machine is clear and passes air freely. Check the wheels for stuff wound up in the bearings. Hope this helps!

The small belt that makes the beater bars spin broke. It is only two years old; repair shops tell me this involves replacing two belts because of some kind of clutch to the tune of $150! Is this possible...


A very easy replacement. The belts cost about £3 each. Yes, there are two belts and even if the clutch needed replacement, this is about £20 for clutch and both belts http://www.dysonpartsdirect.co.uk/dysonparts/dc07belts.shtml - this is a UK site, but I am sure you will find similar prices in the US/Canada. So, total price about $30 USD. What a rip-off - $150! It is very straight forward and just requires turning the turnbuckles that hold the bottom plate that covers the brush bar - then lift out the brush bar and you will then be able to pull out the old belt - hooking the new belt on the clutch mechanism is a bit tricky and requires a bit of dexterity and patience. Once re-assembled, make sure the brush bar rotates the correct way - it should brush to the back of the machine, i.e. when looking at it side on with the front of the machine pointing to the right, the brush bar should rotate clockwise. If not, turn unhook the belt from the clutch mechanism and hook it on the other way. Fiddly, but not difficult. I've done a few now and it takes about 15 mins.
