Hi. It sounds like the lower wiring Loom is about to break. The copper wires are touching intermittently causing it to start/stop. You will need to replace the lower wiring Loom and yoke. It’s not an easy fix if you don’t know how to do it.

If it spins freely no resistance you probably need a belt..

if the belt is ok then the gears may have striped ck amazon for a head assembly complete.

SOURCE: brushes not going round

The brushes on my dyson have stopped going round. I have checked it and they move freely by hand. The belt is intact. What could the problem be? The Hoover is about 10 to 12 years old.
My dyson is a dc04


I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
One of the main problems with vacuums are that the flat belts on the vacuums stretch and should be changed every 4 to 6 months or 3 or 4 times a year – you can tell by taking off the belt or belts on the vacuums and compare them to the old belts on the vacuum the new belts will fix inside of the old belts and you will be able to see the difference on how much they have stretched – if the belt is a geared belt – they stretch as well but should be changed about one a year – the cost is not that expensive and you cleaning will improve almost double – this also applies for the Dyson DC04 and the Hoover vacuum as well – some of the Hoover vacuums have two (2) belts and they both should be changed @ the same time.

SOURCE: beater brush won't spin but belt is intact and ok.

For your beater brush to spin, you have to meet two conditions:
1) the vacuum cleaner has to be reclined (put your foot on the front and pull back on the handle).
2) The clutch actuator (the dial where you switch between BEAR FLOORS and CARPETS needs to be set to CARPETS).

If the brushbar/beater bar still doesn't spin after that, call the Dyson helpline, they will assist you. If you are saying that the brushbar isn't spinning because it is not picking up any dirt, you may have a loose internal hose, a blockage in the machine or the bristles on the brushbar are worn. Call the Dyson helpline for assistance.

SOURCE: the brush bar wont spin on my dyson dc 25... i

Hi its Darran at Dyson.

Simply switch the machine off and stand it upright. Press the brush bar on/off switch once and then turn the machine back on.

When you release the machine into the vacuuming position, the brush bar should start to turn again.

If you still having problems, please contact our Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Kind regards

SOURCE: Brush stopped spinning

If you've had the brush out to clean it you need to re-set the trip switch which is a red button at the right side of the brush simply press it in till it clicks.

Dyson DC25 brush won't spin when touching the floor. If I lift it off the floor it spins, once it touches the floor it stops. Any idea what the problem is?


I can think of three things that could be wrong.

The easiest one is that the brush has hair and fluff wrapped around its bearing. This happened to me and was causing a burning rubber smell. Turn it over and remove the base plate. Lift the belt by putting a piece of cord under it and slide the brush out. Remove one end of the brush and slide the spindle out. Clean all the hair out and reassemble.

The internal drive belt is worn, or the nylon bush that it runs on.

The clutch is worn out.

The last two are not as easy to fix as the main drive belt is enclosed in the centre of the clutch. There are videos though that show you the process. Have a read and a watch, but try my first tip first.

    The brushes do not spin. Nothing caught in the brushes.


    Hi, it's Jack at Dyson.

    DC25 doesn't use a conventional, user-replaceable belt. Instead it it uses a belt engineered to last the lifetime of the vacuum in normal use, protected by a sensor which shuts off the brush bar if something jams it.

    Normally, checking the cleaner head for obstructions and removing any threads or hair from the brush bar and endcap will allow you to reset your machine:


    However if you've already followed each of the steps shown in our video guide without success, you may need a replacement cleaner head or a repair of your machine. If you can contact us directly we should be able to arrange this for you, and can also confirm if this is covered under your Dyson warranty.

    When you have your DC25 easily to hand, please get in touch with the Dyson Customer Helpline so we can help determine if a repair or replacement part is needed. 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).

    We'll look forward to speaking with you.

    My dc25 brush will not spin when i clean the floor


    Hi Raymond, it's Jack at Dyson.

    Like many Dyson vacuums, DC25's cleaner head includes a sensor which shuts of the brush bar if something jams it. Once you've checked the cleaner head for obstructions, and removed any threads or hair from around the brush bar and endcap, you should be able to reset the machine as shown in our video guide below:


    The brush bar will never rotate when the machine is standing upright, so make sure you recline it into the normal vacuuming position before testing it. Once it's reassembled, plug it in, turn it on, recline it and press the silver brush control switch (next to the red on/off switch) twice.

    If you'd like some further help after giving this a try, you're welcome to call the Dyson Customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU). If a repair or a replacement part is needed, we can also confirm if your machine is within the Dyson guarantee period.

    Dyson DC25 Broken Brush Bar Connector


    Hi Alex, it's Jack at Dyson.

    I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your DC25. If the drive spindle of your machine has broken in use, you would need to replace the cleaner head assembly.

    Please get in touch with us directly, as our experts will be able to take some further details to confirm if we're able to replace this for you under the terms of our 5-year warranty. You can reach us by emailing askdysonUS@dyson.com
