Brush won't turn on dyson dc07

There was a belt that was to be attached to the motor shaft under the belt cover, be sure that it didn't pop off. the recommended fix is to replace the clutch, not the belts in the clutch. if you only replaced the belts it could still be a bad clutch.

If you need any help feel free to contact me.

How do you change a belt on a dyson DC07

Turn vacuum over so you can see the brush.
Using a standard screwdriver, undo the three fasteners just behind the brush.
Remove the base plate.
Remove the belt.
Remove roller brush.
Place new belt on roller brush and center it in position.
Feed belt through the hole, and return brush to position.
Ensure the brush ends are located in the slots correctly.
Pull the belt over the motor shaft.
Rotate the brush a few times to ensure belt is centered and secure.
Replace the base plate, tighten fasteners, and rotate the brush a few more times to make sure it turns properly and the belt isn't caught.

I recently replaced the motor belt on my DC07 and now there is a very loud noice coming out of it when in use. What could be the problem?

Hi there SmartAlec here. I am guessing that since you said you replaced the belt on your vacuum that it was actually really stretched or broken before. Assuming this is right I would say that either the clutch roller is actually faulty or there is a problem in the bearings of your brush roller. I have made a video to show you how to look for these problems. If you need parts for your Dyson DC07 check out vacuumspot or nelsonvacuums they both have a good range of dyson spares for purchase online. If this guide was helpful please take the time to leave a review of give it a thumbs up!.

I have a dyson root cyclone. i dismantled it to replace the belt, it is not the belt which is on the roller brush, it is the belt which is from the motor, it was easy to take out as it was broken, i will...

The belt that fits on the motor is the same belt that drives the roller brush, all you need do to gain access is remove the sole plate, normally attached with 3 quarter turn connectors, use large flat screwdriver to turn them

The roller in the vacuum head no longer spins

If the motor is running but the roller is not turning you need a new drive belt and if you are in UK you can order it from
it is very simple to fit and comes with full fitting instructions delivered for about £6.

Dyson DC07 brush roller is worn and won't make contact with the carpet anymore. I need to replace the brush roller but don't know how...HELP?

Buy the brush over the web etc..

To take the brush out
1 - Take the outer covering - uese a penny to turn the yellow srews

2 - Slide the black brush out from the assembly - Try the non belt side first.

3- Slide the belt out of the brush.

4 - Take brush out - Replace it with new one.

No suction when vacuming floors


There are 2 types of Dc07 one is clutched & has two belts the second has only one belt going from motor to brush roller.

Lay machine on its side pull back handle as if you are to vac carpet switch machine on look to see if brush roller is spinning.

If it is not spinning unplug machine from mains supply & remove the sole plate by turning the three plastic screws to unlock position, Lift sole plate away if you have non clutched machine you will now see the brush roller with A belt going from this to the motor shaft belt may have snapped or come off so replace it.

If your Dyson has A clutch unit this engages the brush roller when you pull the handle back to vacuum.

Check the clutch control knob which is at the bottom left side of machine looking from the front.
It should rotate to drive position when handle is pulled back.

If it doesnt turn the knob by hand to drive.

If you still have no brush rotation after doing all this then either the clutch is faulty or the second belt which goes clutch to motor has snapped & will need replacing.

There are service manuals available for these repairs at this site

Dyson DC07


Depending on wether your machine has A clutch fitted will decide how easy this job will be.

The non clutched model is very simple turn the 3 plastic screws on sole plate to unlock position lift plate off remove belt from motor shaft & lift out brush roller.
Replace belt & roller fit sole plate & its done.

The clutched version will require the removing of the sole pate,
Then remove brush roller. & brush roller housing.
Then remove clutch cover,
Replace both belts & reassemble.

Its A lot to explain in great detail so try this site if your struggling.
