SOURCE: beater bar

You may have a bad switch, one part of it is not turning on the brush roll motor. It could also be the brush roll motor.

SOURCE: beater bar on Dyson upright won't turn when handle is lowered

I have finally fixed my sister's dyson dc 15 beater bar problem. It was just 2 tiny broken wires connect to circuit board lead to the beater bar. The wires broke where they go through the black rubber gommet. You need a torx screwdriver tx 15 to remove 2 plastic covers to access the wires. When looking at the front of the vacuum, the gray covers located on the right side of the vacuum. 1 big cover with a black rubber gasket and other small gray cover is on the rotating ball area.
This my new year resolution is to warn people not to buy Dyson vacuum cleaner ( Junk) design to break down! Shame on you Dyson!!!! Save your money find good old vacuum cleaner with metal parts.

OLD IS IN NEW IS JUNK!

Happy New Year!

SOURCE: dyson DC 14 lost suction to beater bar/ suction to hose/stick

My Dyson DC14 had no suction...see if this works...turn the Dyson upside down...there is a length of hose that connects the bottom of the vacuum to the top, careful remove one end of the hose and check for debris...mine was clogged. Removed the clog and voila...it works. Thanks for the above info on checking the hose for cracks.

SOURCE: Bissell Beater brush sporadic

I was having the same problem with my Healthy Home vac and happened to read a solution to another question on this site posted by someone with the user name "9008". I followed his suggestion and my vac works great again. There is a screw on the back of the handle near the cord holders that can loosen up over time. When this screw is loose, the brush switch (and therefore the brushes) do not work properly. I'm not sure why this little screw causes such a big problem, but it does. To find this screw, look on the back of the handle, it's on the edge, kind of behind the hose. You should see a triangle with a Phillips screw-head symbol embossed in the plastic. Tighten this screw gently (careful not to over-tighten and strip it!). Also, not a bad idea to tighten the other screws...I found many of mine to be quite loose. Hope this helps!!

SOURCE: my beater bar will not spin when the handle is lowered

I had the same problem. I read, earlier today, that one of the "problem solvers" called Dyson. Dyson suggested, with the Dyson upright and plugged in, on a carpet, toggle the "bare floor" / "carpet" knob from bare floor to carpet 5 times, then lay it down on the left side (so as the knob is facing up), turn it on, then press the "floor piece" down (to actuate the spinning of the brush), if it spins it worked, if not repeatt the steps one or two more times. Now, I am only tellin you this because it worked for me, I am no expert, but it did take me 3 times to get it to work... the problem is now gone and the vacuum runs great again!

What wrong with my vacuum?


I expect something is rubbing on the beater bar or belt. Remove the beater bar and belt and look for a paper clip, scrap of material, etc.

Why will my sebo felix not turn on when it is plugged in. The bag is empty and the beater bar is free of threads and string.


If it is only the power head that does not turn on, make sure that the hose is fully inserted into the bag housing. There is a switch in the bag housing that has to be activated. If you are not getting any power anywhere, the most common cause would be the power cord. If you are getting 120 volts through the cord, you may need a new power switch. I have included a parts list for your machine for reference. http://sebo.us/pdfs/website_schematicsPDFs/FELIX%20Schematics.pdf

Sebo k3 won't vac on carpet...only hard floor


Do you mean the beater bar stops turning and then it doesn't vacuum?
Or it shuts off when you jam it full of carpet? Read the below manual:

Hi its Darran at Dyson.

The brush control is designed to switch the brush bar off automatically when you stand the machine back into the upright position. It is designed this way to protect any delicate floor surfaces when you have the machine switched on and upright and when you are using the hose.

If the brush control should be in the centre position and move forward to the "on" position when you release the head. If it is not doing this, please contact our Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Kind regards

HOW TO CHANGE DRIVE BELT NO SUCTION FROM UNDERNEATH


the drive belt only controls the beater bar if the bar is spinning the belt is fine.
the no suction problem is probably caused by an obstruction in the line , the most common place that this occurs is where the handle pivots from the power head, if the tool hose can not be pulled at this location, remove the cover for the beater bar and you should be able to reach obstruction from there

Red light on. Works for 2 minuets and then cuts out.  Does not ned a new bag.  Could it be the filter?


It could be a clogged bit of dust. Check the main hose, remove it by unlocking at the top and check the whole assembly including the pull out wand part. Then check the underside. Either inspect using the trapdoor or remove the beater bar and see if there is any clogged dirt behind that. Sometimes dust can get clogged around the neck of the floor head. If you unlock the body of the X from the floor head (button release is just below the main bin) check the main dust channel before it meets the wand. Sometimes it can be clogged with dust there.
Usually if the filters are black they can be cleaned with the exception of the foam motor filter on top of the hood. Cost replacements are usually easy to find online or on EBay.

Beater Bar Does not turn


YOU MAY HAVE A POSSIBLE BAD BELT OR THE MOTOR THAT RUNS THE BAR MAY BE BAD, THE OTHER POSSIBILITY IS THE SWITCH THAT TURNS ON THE BAR MAY BE BAD. OR A WIRE COULD HAVE COME OFF THE MOTOR. i THINK YOU DO KNOW THAT THE BEATER BAR DOES NOT RUN WHEN ON WOOD FLOORS.
