Yes, the agility series is not the easiest to work on. I would take it to your nearest dealer for service. cover screws can be seized and nozzle could break.

Most likely a bad brush motor. You will have to replace the whole nozzle assembly. Dyson doesn't sell the motor seperately for this model and it's a known failure item.

A burning smell when in use


Martinsivyer:

Turn the machine upside-down and see if you can turn the beater/brush bar with your hand. You should see the brush turning and feel the resistance from the motor. The brush/beater bar may be binding, and what you are smelling is the motor shaft spinning against the rubber belt. You can remove the base plate and check the brush/beater bar with the belt disconnected. If the brush/beater bar is difficult to turn, you need to remove the brush/beater bar and clean the bearings at each end, Remove any threads that are wound around the beater bar ends so that the bearings roll easily and smoothly. Check to see that your machine is not set too low for the surface that you are bacuuming. While you have the belt disconnected, check thi inside surface to see if the motor shaft has been spinning against the belt, you'll see the damage to the inside circumfrence of the belt.

The motor stopped running. i can bang it down and it kinda kicks on but wont stay on...how can i fix this or where can i order a replacement motor


before replacing the motor, check the switch itself,, it could be bad or shorting ,, also,, if it seems intermittent it could simply be the motor brushes are worn, both of those are much cheaper than the motor, as with many fixes, sometimes its cheaper to replace the whole thing that repair it,, especially with vacuums

My Roomba says to clean the brushes when the brushes are already clean. Is there something to take apart to check? I have already taken the brushes out. I don't know the model number, I think it's the 500...


turn the unit upside down and remove the bottom pan should be 4 or 5 screws depending on the model.

next remove the 4 screws that hold the brush cartridge and pull the whole brush assembly out.

using a can of compressed air clean that whole assembly out there is a motor there so don't spray any cleaner on it. If there is surface grime you can use a clorox wipe or a damp cloth to get it all off.

this process should take about 10 minutes to do it properly use the straw that came with the compressed air to get in between the plastic shell and get all the dust trapped inside there.

make sure there is no dust trapped in the gears that drive the brushes.

put it all together and it should work.

My dyson dc14 has a strong burning smell


A DC 14 has two belts - one that connects the motor ourput to the clutch mechanism (the dial that lets you turn off the brush rotation completely is part of the clutch mechanism), and another that connects the clutch to the brush bar.
Unfortuneatley, the one that connects the motor to the clutch is hidden under a plastic cover so is very difficult to check.
With the machine running, and NOT in the upright position (i.e. as if you were vacuuming a floor), make sure the brush bar is actually rotating. If it isnt, you need to check both belts and the clutch. Due to the cover being held by three "Torx" screws, one of which is very difficult to get at, this isnt easy.

If the brush bar is rotating, then the burning is an indication the motor is about to fail. Motor replacement is possible depending how good your DIY skills are, and again you'll need "Torx" drivers to dismantle it. Website www.dysonmedic.com has some very good info.

Roomba keeps saying clean brushes yet are clean!


Make sure you take off the little cap at the end (the one that spins -- just grab it and pull it straight off) and clean under it too. The rest of the brush may look perfectly clean but what happens is that hair gets stuck under spinning cap and, like a slowly growing washer, it pushes the whole brush toward the gear box. When it gets pushed over enough, the large yellow ring starts to rub against the side of the brush deck making it harder for the motor to turn the brush and you get that "remove and clean brushes" message.

Hoover steam vac, brushes won't rotate, have cleaned filter by brushes, removed brushes and they rotate okay when off steam vac, tried to ajust level for carpet cleaning and brushes still don't move


Check to see if the shaft on the brush block hasn't broken off. Otherwise it is the turbine that drives the brushes and is either clogged up inside or needs to be replaced.

How to take the brush out?


There should be screws on the bottom plate covering the brush roll, take those out and it should come off and then you can access the brush roll.
