Re: grinding

Are the brushes turning? If not, take the brush block out and see if they turn easily, if they do, is the shaft sticking up still there, or has it broked off. Turn on the unit while the brush block is out, the nosie still there? If not replace the brush block #48437029. If noise is still there, it could be the turbine #43191005 or even the motor #43576197.

Hoover Platinum Collection Carpet Cleaner with MaxExtract Technology making...

The cleaner does it's job well. Using on standard short carpet.
The problem so far is after 6-8 uses it started making a grinding noise when pulling backward.
Brushes still spinning just had the noise and the unit still functioned properly.
I only use it about every 3-4 months to clean 3 rooms.
The last use the noise got worse as it was making in forward and reverse motions.
The noise would usually start after using it for 5-10 minutes.
I figured it might be a slipping belt on the beaters and probably water was getting on the belt making it worse.
I removed the circular beater assy by just pulling it out.
Removed the round front beater by removing 3 screws, 2 at each end and one holding the belt guard on towards the middle. Once the beater is loose slide it out through the belt.
The front beater cogs for the belt had some black build up in between several cogs.
I cleaned the cogs very thoroughly, checked the belt for wear and checked the motor gear. They looked ok.
Assembled in reverse, did a quick dry test but didn't fill all the fluids to do a full test. That will have to wait till next time.
Please don't hold me accountable if you try this and break something, the cleaner is made mostly of plastic and the pieces can easily break. Don't try unless you are willing to take the risk, it may void warranty if it gets broken.
If problem still persists then will try using the 6 year warranty that it supposedly has... From what i've read it might be a pain getting it fixed under warranty.
Here are some visuals.
fell free to contact for questions.

DC07 dyson brush not turning

Hi Robin,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC07. Your machine's brush control is designed to make a ratcheting sound to warn you if an obstruction is jamming the brushbar. The easiest way to check everything is correct with the machine is to follow the steps shown in our online support guide:

This should resolve the issue, but if the cleaner continues to make the noise after you've removed any obstructions from the cleaner head, please call us free on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US), so we can help.

Kind regards,

Dyson Online Customer Support

I have a new dyson vacuum cleaner that is making a loud noise it started when I was vacuuming one day

It probably sucked something big up in it and it is stuck. Get a flashlight and turn the vacuum upside down and look and see if you can see anything you can chat with me and I can walk you through it

Motor Filter Has Been Sucked In - Eureka 4467AV Upright Vacuum

you will have to remove the cover over the motor so you can get to it and the fan. When you get the filter out, drill holes first, then drive a couple of nails down thru where the filter sits so it can't get sucked into the fan again.
