Check the belt that drives the brush head, you most likely burned it up and you need to replace it.

No suction through brush or accessory pipe


Clog somewhere. There may be a " secondary filter" that needs to be replaced. It may be there to "protect" the motor and blower.
Check Owner's manual and it's troubleshooting. Customer service is usualy helpful if you email or call.

Why is the brush not going round


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

As with many Dyson vacuums, DC25's cleaner head is protected by a sensor which shuts off the brush bar if something jams it. If the brush bar isn't currently rotating the machine may need to be reset - this is simple to do after you've checked the cleaner head for obstructions, and removing any threads or hair from around the brush bar and end cap. Please follow the steps shown in the video guide below:

When you've completed these checks and reassembled the vacuum, plug it back in, recline it into the normal vacuuming position turn it on and press the silver brush control switch (next to the red on/off switch) twice. The brush bar should start to rotate - please note, the brush bar will never rotate when the vacuum is standing upright.

In the unlikely event that you continue to have issues with the cleaner head after giving this a try, please get in touch with our experts so we can provide further assistance. If a repair or a replacement part is needed, we can also confirm if your machine is still within its Dyson guarantee. You can reach us by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

How do replace belt on dc41


Ouch The video below shows how to to remove the brush head and how to clean it. I almost think that Dyson didn't ever expect this belt to break. The rest of the disassembly to get to the brush seems to be done by removing torx screws, I have not been able to find a replacement from dyson. A google search shows several sites that sell a replacement belt.

My DC41 Animal Dyson Vacuum's brush will not properly spin.


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

There are a number of reasons why your Dyson cleaner is pulsating off and on. First, it can be due to a battery of the cleaner. Make sure that the power cable is properly plug to the power and seated properly from the unit while charging. If you find that the battery isn't charging at all, you may need to replace the battery. Second is to check the MAX button of your cleaner. If the button lights up and flashes when your Dyson keeps on pulsating, press and hold the power button and depress the MAX button to turn off the function. You may need to do it for a few times to get the hang of it. Third is to check for any blockages or clogs in the attachments. Look down through the tube and check to see if there are clogs on the sweeper end or if the roller is tangled up in fibers. Clean the roller brush are if it it's necessary. You may need to empty the dust bin of your unit as debris can build up in hard to reach places. Lastly, cleaning the filters may fix the pulsating of your cleaner. Remove the filter and rinse it with cold water and air dry it for 12 hours. Don't use detergent when washing your filters. If the pulsating doesn't go with the given quick fix, I suggest to contact Dyson for further assistance on this.

I have a Bissell pet hair eraser model #3920. It's been working great until last night. I went to use it and the brush won't spin. It also smells like it's burning. I checked the belt and it looks fine,...


- Remove the access panel, which is on the bottom of the machine. There are 4 tabs to lift on the access panel to remove. Start with tab 1 then 2-4 tabs.
- Check the brush, and belt for any damage. Clean off any debris on the brush.
-The belt may not be broken but may show signs of wear. If belt is broken or shows signs of wear, replace belt.

Kenmore progressive 360 vacuum cleaner has low suction


Check the tube that leads down to the brush head for clogging as well as any motor or HEPA filters. If that still shows nothing, take the cover off the brush head (like you're changing the belt) and look for obstructions in there. Usually, if you have low suction on the accessory hose, the problem is with a motor filter, HEPA filter, or a clog where the hose goes into the unit. If you have good suction on the accessory hose but none on the floor, it's usually in the brush head (clog or broken belt) Good luck

Fantom Lighting Power Head


The red light tells you that that there is a clog, either in the hose or down by the brush roll. The smell if it is rubber smelling, then it is the belt and maybe the brush roll. If it is an electrical smell, then probably the motor. But parts for these are always available, they went bankrupt several years ago and aren't in business anymore.

Sudden loss of suction.


Check the inlet down by the brush roll to see if it is clogged. Also check the belt to be sure it is ok. Is there suction at the hose? If not then it is still clogged.
