Re: dyson not working

I suggest you check the hepa filter for black soot. If it is black and yucky then the motor is probably burnt out. Check out the guide at for instructions on how to fix it.

Why is my DC24 not working

You may have an object caught between the belt and brush roll.
Remove brush roll cover and see if that is the case.

Dyson will not switch on

Usual problem is the fuse in the plug. Check the fuse first. If this fails then your problem is either the Switch (Unlikley) or the Motor. Its unlikely the motor would break without warning though. If you have had any burning smells or funny noises recently then its the Motor.

If there are no Smells then im confident its only a case of changing the fuse. Quite common for the fuse to go.

When in carpet mode, brushes seem to be hitting something. Brushes cleaned - how to stop making the awful noise

LOL do you mean when you move the vacuum forward (say into a baseboard)? it makes the loud shocking noise.. i hate that too.. but that's the crazy Warning sound indicating something is stuck (like you sucked up an area rug) or you have run into something and it set off a sensor.

Dyson lost suction

I found out that it was the sponge filter bit which needs washing every 6 months in cold water, this sorted it out as I had never cleaned it before

Dyson DC15 -

First see this link:
There must be something else stuck in the roller assembly. Or it wasn't mounted correct. He will have to dismount it, inspect each piece and carefully reassemble it. Make sure that the wires at the circuit board do not become loose or break.
