Question about Vacuums
I have a DC41. Brush head became clogged by a sock. This went unnoticed until an odd smell occurred. I cannot get brushhead to restart. Have cleaned all hoses, filters to no avail. There is suction.Can you recommend next steps to diagnose problem?
Check the belt that drives the brush head, you most likely burned it up and you need to replace it.

a burning smell is usually an indication that the belt is slipping. It may just be worn out or the brush and or bearings may be bound up with hair. Remove the brush cover, some are on top other on the bottom, and look for anything wrapped around the brush. Also look at the belt where it goes around the drive spindle, if you see small black specks the belt needs to be replaced. Check the brush fro free movement, if it dosen't spin easly the bearings may need cleaning.
