I have a Lindhaus powerhead MOD.PB12e SN123463. The powerhead turns on and the roller starts turning but after a couple of seconds it starts sounding like something is not letting the roller turn properly...


A common problem is for hair to get wrapped around and forced into the end bearings which causes the motor to work harder or drive belt to slip. Cleaning the hair out can be a short term fix but new bearings might be needed. It's also a good idea to replace the drive belt at the same time as the slipping belt is probably not going to perform well even with new bearings.

Brushbar not turning


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC03 doesn't use a traditional user-replaceable belt. Instead it has a brush control clutch mechanism which allows you to turn off the brush bar when cleaning hard floors and delicate rugs.

If the brush bar doesn't seem to be rotating, it's worth double-checking you have the brush control set correctly. When the machine is reclined into the normal vacuuming position, the brush control should move to the Drive/On position:

Please note, as a safety feature the brush bar will never rotate when the vacuum is standing upright.

If you're confident the brush control is in the correct position, but the brush bar still won't rotate, please give our freephone UK Helpline a call on 0800 298 0298. We're available from 8am-8pm from Monday to Friday, and 8am-6pm on weekends. Calls are free from UK landlines.

Spinbrush not working on eureka as1104


If the belt is intact, the brush roller ends may be so jammed (usually with hair) that it cannot rotate. Also, if the brush roller cannot rotate, the motor shaft may be rotating in one spot on the belt and eventually will burn it out. The solution in the case of the brush roller is to remove it and check for free rotation. If the ends are binding, the brush roller will have to be disassembled to remove debris.

This vacuum is not picking up anymore when used as an upright, however it does still work very well when using the hose and attachments, I have looked at the vacuum but I cannot figure out where the clog...


Is the brush rotating?
Have you turned it over, taken off the bottom plate and cleaned it out?
Is the belt in good shape or does it no longer rotate the brush?
Is it on the proper floor/carpet setting for the surface you are cleaning?

Try these as they usually repair most vacuum issues of this type.

My powerhead drive belt to the N137A electrolux model has broken. I have a new belt for replacement but do not know how to install.


Turn the PN bottom up. With a Phillips screwdriver, remove the six screws in the base. Turn PN over and lift back of cover, then gently manipulate it until it comes off.
Slide the belt off motor shaft, if necessary. Remove the screws on each end of the brush and lift the end of the brush so you can remove the belt, if necessary. Place new belt on brush and place brush into slot. Replace screws and tighten. Pull belt back to motor shaft and slip on. Check belt for tautness. There should be a little play, but not much. Make sure belt is placed correctly and rotate brush a few turns.
I recommend cleaning the inside of the PN while you have it apart. Use the dust brush to vacuum as much as possible out.
Make sure the light cover is in the correct position. Carefully place front lip of PN cover into slot in front.of the PN. Carefully settle cover in place. Check around the PN to ensure cover and base are correctly placed. Turn PN over and replace screws, short one in front.

I do recommend letting a trained Aerus Electrolux tech do this, especially since the belt will have a one year warranty if he/she does it. Of course the belt should last longer than that, anyway.

HI, My Dyson DC07 Is excellent When I use the hose, But it's not so good on carpets. There is no blockage in the bottom hose & all the filters are clean. Also the belt & roller are working &...


There's a possibility the bristles on the brush are worn down so much they no longer make good contact with the carpet, hence they don't brush certain types of debris into the airflow of the powerhead.
You can check the brushes by gently stroking the palm of your hand along the brush area to see if the bristles make good contact. A visual check can also be made by looking at one side of the powerhead, line it up so you can see the other side. If the bristles can't be seen, the brush needs replaced.

How to replace belt on lux 4000 vacuum?


The following is for most models of the Aerus Electrolux UR models.

Lay the vacuum on it's front so you can see the bottom of the powerhead as shown below. Befrore going further, hold your hand straight and move your hand across the opening for the brush. If the bristles don't make good contact, the brush also needs replaced.
Remove the four screws. Using a flathead screwdriver, place it into the two rectangle openings (shown with red arrows) near the wheels and gently pry on tab to release the top of the power head.

Flip machine over and gently lift back of cover which will release the front. Lift off and set aside.

This is what you should see. Remove the two screws at the ends of the brush. Check carefully how the ends of the brush fit in. Gently lift out brush. This is a good time to clean entire interior of the power head. Install new belt over motor shaft and teeth of brush: set brush into place. Insert screws. Check tension of the belt.

Replace cover of power head, being sure to settle front in just beneath the lip of the front of the base first. Press down until it "clicks" into place. Turn machine over and insert and tighten screws.

My dyson dc14 has a strong burning smell


A DC 14 has two belts - one that connects the motor ourput to the clutch mechanism (the dial that lets you turn off the brush rotation completely is part of the clutch mechanism), and another that connects the clutch to the brush bar.
Unfortuneatley, the one that connects the motor to the clutch is hidden under a plastic cover so is very difficult to check.
With the machine running, and NOT in the upright position (i.e. as if you were vacuuming a floor), make sure the brush bar is actually rotating. If it isnt, you need to check both belts and the clutch. Due to the cover being held by three "Torx" screws, one of which is very difficult to get at, this isnt easy.

If the brush bar is rotating, then the burning is an indication the motor is about to fail. Motor replacement is possible depending how good your DIY skills are, and again you'll need "Torx" drivers to dismantle it. Website www.dysonmedic.com has some very good info.
