Hi its Darran at Dyson.

The Turbine head on the DC11 range is not powered by a motor, it is air driven. If the performance of this tool has reduced, this is most likely caused by a dirty filter or a blockage in the head or the machine.

To clear, please visit our support section online at www.dyson.com.

If you have a different product that does have a motorised head, you will also be able to locate information on how to reolve this via the online support section.

I hope that this information is useful to you.

Kind regards
Darran

Have a Dyson v6 for several months. Roller brush stops turning a soon as I start to push forward after staring trigger. Examined & cleaned roller & surrounding head & find no objects interfering.


The Dyson V6 has an electric motor in the power head. The battery is in the handle unit. So power has to get from the battery head unit down to the motor at the floor roller brush. The way they do this is to send the power around the plastic debris cup that you empty, and then into the connector for the tube and out the bottom of the tube to the roller brush motor. Your problem is probably that there is a lost contact along the way. Try plugging the roller brush directly into the head unit leaving the tube out and see if it is intermittent or if it runs fine. In that case the problem is one of the contacts associated with the down tube. If the roller brush is intermittent even when plugged directly into the head unit, then the problem may be the connection associated with the debris cup. remove the cup and make sure the contacts are clean. Hope this helps. G

I have received new power head on my dyson dc29 but it is not working what do I do to install it right


If your power head is electric you likely have an electrical problem you will need to trace, if it is an air driven turbo nozzle your airflow may be restricted. The filters may need replaced.

Turbo head has stopped spinning


Hi Fay, it's Jack at Dyson.

If your DC39 Multi Floor's turbine head has stopped spinning, this could mean there's a blockage in the turbine head, wand, hose or lower duct hose. This could reduce the airflow passing through the machine, which in turn will affect the turbine which powers the rotating brush bar.

It's also a good idea to check the Turbine head is free of any threads, hair or other obstructions:

I have a dc56, will the new tangle free turbine tool, part No 925068, fit it?


Hi Lyn, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC56, the new Dyson Hard vacuum cleaner, is engineered for quick cleanups on hard floor surfaces - wood, laminate, lino, tile etc. It also converts into a powerful handheld vacuum for dusting tasks around the home and inside the car.

The Dyson Hard is not designed for use on carpeted floors, and we do not manufacture a motorised head for this machine as it lacks the wiring and connections needed to supply current to a motorised head.

Airflow-driven Turbine heads, such as the Tangle-free Turbine tool, are engineered to work with the performance characteristics of our mains-powered vacuum cleaners, and are not compatible with Dyson cordless or handheld vacuums.

However, we do have a range of accessories which are compatible with DC56, and you can find these on our website: http://www.dyson.co.uk/accessories/variant-accessories.aspx?pid=DC56-dyson-hard

Dyson power head stops but can be started immediatly


Just had the same problem. Took apart whole power head to look for broken wire and found none. If you see part way up the hose there is a coller with 4 torx screws holding together. This collar is a swivel that allows the hose to spin without twisting or kinking. Take the 4 screws out and open up. You will see 3 contacts that look like fingers that rub on 3 mating steel rings. Wipe the tips of the fingers and wipe clean the rings. Gently bend the fingers out wards so that they apply more pressure to the steel rings. Reassemble and try. Should take no more than 15 mins. Worked for me good luck!

Power head not working


Hi, it sounds like your motor is gone. That was the sound i had from my dyson dc07 animal i took it apart and found that the brushes had burnt the armature on the motor. I ordered a new motor and fitted it back together with the help from an espares video. I bought a genuine dyson motor they come in a black box and it is a lot cheaper than buying a new dyson. It was the popping sound that i had .Hope this is of some help to you. Always unplug the hoover when working on it.

Dyson power head stops when on carpets, cleaned brush out, still happens.


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

As the Turbine head is air driven, you may need to wash the filter and check the rest of the machine for a blockage as a loss of suction will also reduce the performance of the Turbine head.

For the full blockage procedure and filter washing instructions, please visit the Support section of our website at www.dyson.com.
