Most DC07 models have a clutch that switches the brushroll off and on. These models have two belts in the clutch assembly. If either belt is broken or stretched the brush roll won't spin properly. Installing a new clutch is the best way.

Dyson Vacuum, brush won't spin


I just picked one of these (DC-07s) up at a flea market, and even talked the price down since I didn't see the brush spin when i power tested it. The brush will not spin if (1) the vacuum is fully upright (i.e. the handle is all the way up, or (2), if the brush clutch is disengaged. The system has a clutch to engage or dis-engage the brush, so that you don't have it kicking debis all over hard floors. Looking down from the usual vacuum-driver positing, it's on right hand side of the brush/motor/wheel assembly. A (probably) grey cylindrical knob that can be turned toward you for hard floor (no spin) mode, or away from you to engage the brush for carpet.

If neither of those works, check that the belt is still attached. Disengage the clutch, turn unit over so you can see the brush. Try to spin it. It should spin freely. Now engage the clutch and try to spin it. If it still spins freely, the drive belt is broken or missing, at which point you'll need to look up the replacement process (not difficult) online and get another belt (or see if it just came loose). The belt is secured under a cross-over piece on the bottom plate for the brush, so it can be a bit of a pain to get to.to check it's still there, so the ease-of-rotation test is easier.

Hoping this helps, and good luck!

DC07 grinding noise


I had the same problem with mine, I took it to a repair shop. The problem is where the belt passes through from the brush and goes inside the machine. Move the belt over a bit and you will see that a plastic guide has been bent over and is pressing onto the brush, which causes the noise. Just bend it straight again and it stops.

you need to lie the dyson out on the floor/table and you will see some screws underneath holding the rotating brush in place, remove these with a torx bit and you will see how it lifts up to allow the belt to be replaced, just keep track of how things sit to make it easier to put back together

I have no suction from the bottom


If there are no obvious air leaks, check to see that the belt that turns the beater brush is not broken and that the beater brush has not frozen up. Remove the beater brush and clean it, spraying a bit of WD40 at each end by the hard rubber pieces that hold it in place. Turn the beater brush by hand to be sure it moves freely around the rubber pieces. When you reassemble, make sure the belt is properly installed.

Have a sour odor when the vaccum is running. What could be the problem? Best way to describe the smell is that is smells like dirty feet. I have the dyson dc07 Pink


Either something you have pulled into the vacuum or perhaps the drive belt is not turning the beater brush. Remove the beater brush and clean as best you can paying particular attention to the end pieces. If possible, squirt a bit of WD40 between the beater brush and the end pieces. Turn by hand to be sure the brush is moving freely. Reassemble with new belt.
Please let me know how it turns out. Paul

THE BRUSH ISN'T TURNING, EVERYTHING ELSE IS WORKING.


Sounds like the beater brush is frozen and won't turn. Remove the beater brush and clean off all debris, especially at both ends. You will find a square(?) piece at each end of the beater brush that holds it in place. This need to turn freely. Put a little WD40 on these where the center rod of the beater brush enters the small holders and turn by hand until they turn freely. Once this is done, assemble with new belt, making sure the belt is put on properly.

New Belt, but can't reinstall brush correctly


the rectangular and round ends are not intended to turn ..they stay fixed.. the bearing is inside the brush next to the round and rectangular ends .. if the ends dont move freely then there may be hair or string wound around the bearings .. clean that out so that things turn freely (the end may even come off) ... once you have things free and clean .. then putting the brush back in place does take some strength .. the belt gets very tight and its difficult but possible to get the rectangle inserted in its slot ..

Brush bar dosent spin and the belt is still in tact


Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. Sounds like you have a brush roller bearing or bearings problem. Undo the base plate off your dyson vacuum cleaner and remove the brush it will be toughto slide it out but can be done. Hold it in your hands and see if it turns freely if not you can try and remove the end caps (bits on end of brush) and clean it out with an air compressor or small brush.Put the caps back on and retest. If its greatly improved excellent refit and vacuum. If its not freely spining it will have to have new bearings or replace the brush complete ads they are not very dear. I can supply a brush for you to buy if you are not near a parts shop. hope this helps regards SmartAlec.
Happy Vacuuming :)

Dyson DC07 Vaccum - brush will not turn


Hi.

Your Dyson has A clutch unit this engages the brush roller when you pull the handle back to vacuum.

Check the clutch control knob which is at the bottom left side of machine looking from the front.
It should rotate to drive position when handle is pulled back.

If it doesnt turn the knob by hand to drive & try the machine.

If you still have no brush rotation after doing all this then UNPLUG machine from mains supply.
Now lay machine on its side & remove the sole plate, This is the cover over the brush roller.
Turn the 3 plastic screws to unlock postition & lift sole plate off.

Now try to yurn brush roller using your hand. It should turn freely if it is difficult to turn look for any foriegn object obstructing the roller.

If no obstruction found then remove the brush roller from the machine & check the bearings in the ends of the brush roller one or both may be siezed up if they are then new brush roller will solve the problem.

If bearings are good then either the clutch is faulty or the second belt which goes clutch to motor has snapped & will need replacing.

It is difficult to fully explain the clutch removing procedure,
But there are service manuals available for these repairs at this site
