I would say that the belt is broken or the switch was hit and the contacts got misaligned (wife is a little rough on things). If you hit the switch on top with the vac in the use position, do you here the motor turn on? If you are not Mechanically Inclined, call Dyson. They have an excellent Warranty Center. Just make sure that you do not mention that you misused or were rough with it.

I have a dyson animal (purple) "the ball" vacuum and now when I push the button to turn off the beater bar it turns off my vacuum. Help?


There is a linkage between the on/off and the beater bar switch that probably has came loose or is broken. It also could be wires shorting out.

Dyson Animal handheld brush not turning


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

We would recommend checking it for a blockage and a removing any hair or fibres from the brush bar.

As the brush bar relies on the suction power of your machine, it would be worth cleaning the filter and checking for blockages as this may cause a loss of suction will in turn stop the brush bar in the Mini Turbine head turning.

If you are still experiencing difficulties, please contact our Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Kind regards
Darran

Beater bar is slipping on belt on my Dyson DC17 animal


Beater bar was turning intermittently. No noise. Removed bar, disassembled ends and removed lots of junk. Replaced, and works like new, so far.

DC17 Animal - loud noise in roller bar


We were able to get in touch with the Dyson support people and they told us this model doesn't have a clutch in the roller bar. The support person helped us walk through looking at the vacuum and it turns out the belt was stripped and they are sending us a new replacement belt. Case Solved!!

BAR NOT TURNING


The bar is not atached to the drive belt or the belt is broken

The brush bar on my Dyson DC17 stopped turning.


If this model has a brush control - i.e a roller at the side of the model which controls brush to spin or not, then its a protected brush model - therefore even if the drive belt is intact the Dyson would have to be repaired by a service personnel or professional. The brush protection isn't able to be taken apart and sounds like it may well have slipped off due to tension.

Dyson DC14 animal


this may sound harsh and i apologize in advanc. but dyson vacuums are just over priced pieces of junk. you would have gotten better quality out of a 39.00 bissell and now to the repair. the machine is made of cheep plastic which wears and breaks over time. the power switch, and button will have to be replaced which will cost you rougly around 70 bucks. and that is if you do it yourself. the beater bar stop could be a broken engage bar as well. meaning when you turn the nob to hard wood or to floors it turns the beater bar off, but when you turn it to carpet it kicks it back on. the mechanism that does that could be broke as well. i would make dyson warranty the vacuum if it is still under warranty. if it isnt i will say it is not worth the repair costs to keep it. im sorry to have to say this but they are disposable vacuums they are not built with quality.
