Dyson DC17 Animal roll bar makes the vaccum buck

I just got a refurbished Dyson DC17 Animal and the roll bar makes the vaccum buck and vibrate and then it stops rolling. It's like it's too low to spin. Directions are useless. I can't figure out if there is a higher setting. Any suggestions?

My husband ran over my daughters shirt with our Dyson DC17 animal. Now it's making this horrible load ratting noise. I've taken the head off. Clean the beater bar. The belt is in tact. No


First make sure there are not any of the rubber cogs missing from the belt, it may be wise to replace the belt anyway because the cogs may be worn. Make sure the brush roll does not have any play in it anywhere and that It fits tightly in the nozzle housing without any play. If there is any play or wiggle that will cause it to move.

Hi there,

Sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC17 Animal. You might find it helpful to check that the brushbar is free of threads, hair, or anything else which might be obstructing it - the easiest way to do this is to follow the steps shown in our online support guide:

You can call us free on 1866MYDYSON - or if you email your details to askdysonUS@dyson.com, someone will be in contact with you as soon as possible.

My dyson dc17 will not roll across the carpet, because their is too much suction.?


Turn on the beater bar with the gray button next to the red power button. The powered beater bar will "propel" the vacuum across the carpet.

This belt isn't available at your normal retail stores like Walmart or Home Depot. You can try your local vacuum repair shop, but not all vacuum shops carry Dyson parts. The best bet is online. You can get this belt here at this link and shipping is only $1.99. That might be worth it rather than driving all over trying to find that belt.

If suction is not what it was, check all of your hoses and connections for vacuum leaks. And the beater roll should always be turning - check out the belt for slippage.

Dyson animal


called dyson they told me to turn the vaccum on and off 5 times, lower the handle to the floor when it was off. Now try the vaccum again and it worked. This is somekind of reset.

Thanks Paul
