The bearings on your brush have gone bad. Buy a new roller brush and replace the belt as well, even if the old one seems o.k. Most people don't realize that roller brushes have bearings in the ends that allow them to turn quickly and smoothly. If you get hair wrapped around the roller brush, this will kill the bearings.

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.

    I have a Dyson DC04 which is making a strong burning smell within a few seconds of switching on. Is this likely to be the motor and if so can it be replaced?


    More likely it is the beater brush which is jammed and not turning. Turn the machine over and remove the bottom plate. Unhook the drive belt, then try to turn the beater brush--it is likely bound up with string, thread, and hair. Try turning the machine on once--if the motor spins and makes vacuum, it is probably ok. Remove the brush assembly and clean it of debris. Clean the end bearings with a Q tip and WD40 oil, then wipe clean with another Q tip. Oil the bearings with 3-1 or other light oil. Check the belt for a badly burned area--replace if necessary. Slide the new belt over the brush and motor shaft, then drop the brush with bearings into the case, and check rotation. If ok, replace the plate and test on your floor. Hope this helps!

    Brush does not turn. It was clogged with hair and used. I've cleared all.. belt is still on and it does not turn. It seems ok but


    Check the belt's linkages, and ensure that they themselves turn. Occasionally hair will get up into the belt assembly and wrap itself around a linkage pulley, and will lock the belt spin there.

    If the furthest-up belt link spins freely(and all the others do, including the brush) by your hand, it could be that the spin motor has burnt out. This will usually be accompanied by an acrid "electrical" scent.

    The brush does not spin but the belt is ok. The spindle at the inner end of the belt does not spin when the motor is running.


    DC07s have two belts - one connects the output of the motor to the clutch, the other connects the clutch to the brush bar.
    I suspect the belt you are to refering to is the one from the bar to the brush. Unfortuenately the other belt is hidden under a plastic cover, so you cant see if it is okay or not without some dismantling. This cover is not easy to remove and requires a Torx driver to under the securing screws.
    Have a look at www.dysonmedic.com, but unless you have access to such a tool, probably time to call Dyson or a Vacuum repairer.

    My dyson DC17 makes a loud noise when i tip the handle down to make the brush spin on the floor?


    Loud noises are usually caused by worn belts, unbalanced roller brush or debris in the roller brush. Check these things. Here is a link to the belt you need:

    Beater brush won't spin but belt is intact and ok. Brush is clean and spins freely by hand.


    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.

    Beeter brush not spinning


    Hi If the Dyson has a brush protected switch on the left hand side of the machine, then it has a drive belt that can only be replaced by a serviceman or Dyson repairer. If the Dyson doesn't have brush protection, then pop open the sole plate and change the drive belt.
