Brushbar not turning


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC03 doesn't use a traditional user-replaceable belt. Instead it has a brush control clutch mechanism which allows you to turn off the brush bar when cleaning hard floors and delicate rugs.

If the brush bar doesn't seem to be rotating, it's worth double-checking you have the brush control set correctly. When the machine is reclined into the normal vacuuming position, the brush control should move to the Drive/On position:

Please note, as a safety feature the brush bar will never rotate when the vacuum is standing upright.

If you're confident the brush control is in the correct position, but the brush bar still won't rotate, please give our freephone UK Helpline a call on 0800 298 0298. We're available from 8am-8pm from Monday to Friday, and 8am-6pm on weekends. Calls are free from UK landlines.

Dyson brush bar stops when I move forward


Make sure that the brush does not have lots of hair etc jammed around it. If there is anything that will cause resistance to the brush bar turning, a sensor will immobilise the brush until it is clear. Be careful how far you strip it back to as there may be warranty issues if you do more than undo the bottom with a penny, so you can use scissors to cut away at the hair or carpet fibre entanglement. Good luck

Dyson DC17 Loud Noise when using brush bar. I have replaced the brush bar and belt with new ones. No load screaming until using brush bar. Pretty sure its the brush bar motor bearings. Can these be...


Hi Ed,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your DC17. It's worth checking that the new brush bar and belt are fitted correctly, and rotate freely. The video attached may help in making sure it's correctly aligned.

It's worth checking that no threads, hair or debris are caught within the machine. The brush bar motor itself isn't designed to be serviced, and we would advise against attempting this in case further damage is caused. I'd encourage you to email our experts directly with our contact details - you can reach them at askdysonUS@dyson.com. Someone will be in touch as soon as possible to take you through some diagnostic checks to confirm what's causing the noise.

If you'd prefer to call our customer Helpline, you can reach us on 1-866-693-9766.

Best wishes,

Jack

Belt no longer turns the brush


JKGonzo:
You'll need to open the vacuum head and remove the beater bar. Clean up the bearings at each end of the beater bar and reassemble the head.

The brush bar isn't going round ?


your problem seems to be the belt has snapped. Underneath the the hover there is a rubber belt that connects around the brush bar and around the motor, this belt will be broken. They can purchased from any hoover shop for a couple of pounds.

Bottom agitator brush bar doesn't rotate.


First, check to make sure the brush bar is on. The switch is right next to the machine's on-off button, and it is easy to accidentally turn it off when you turn the DC 25 on or off.

Next, check for and clear any obstructions in the brush bar housing.

Finally, check for belt wear and replace if necessary. There is a very video online showing the procedure.

Brush bar doesn't rotate.


Either the bearing in the rotating brush is bad and isn't allowing the brush to turn, or in the majority of cases, the belt is broken.

Ball makes a clicking sound and brush isn't turning


Check the brush. That could be the problem. Check the belt also. Your brush roller may need to be lubed or even replaced.Turn it over and wipe all the black residue off the bottom of it.------ Either the brush is getting clogged and blocked by dirt, hairs etc etc and that needs to be cleaned or the brush bar motor is got faulty and needs to be replaced.------- You can yourself replace this motor,m if its not running.------- To get instructions to disassemble the vacuum and replace the motor, click this link below :--- http://howtobyme.blogspot.com/2011/08/brush-not-turning-on-dyson-ball-dc24.html----------- This will-help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Brush bar on Dyson DC07 clic


Not sure if I understand what you mean, but I'll try... I guess the "button" that you refer to is the clutch knob that's located on the side of the base. It has three positions: manual off, auto off and auto on. In manual off, the brush bar is always off. In the auto position, the brush bar should be off when the machine's handle is upright and automatically turn on when the handle is lowered.
If you've got the knob in the auto position but the brush bar does not rotate when you lower the handle, then there's a problem with the clutch unit and you will almost certainly need professional help. It is possible for the keen amateur to service or replace the clutch unit, but it's quite a job.
If you opt for a professional service, be sure to get a firm quote as it may cost more than the machine is worth to you. The part's not cheap, and there's a fair amount of labour involved.
I hope this helps. If not, please reply with more details and I'll try again.

Correct position of beater bar on a Dyson DC14?


I had the same problem. I removed the brush from the machine. The brush should move freely when removed. If it doesn't move freely, pull the ends from the brush, both ends come off(one will have a rod fixed to it). I would suggest you clean the ends and the inside of where the ends sit on the brush. I applied a little grease on both end housings(inside end housing) if no grease available try washing up liquid. Put the brush ends back on the brush. I then spun the brush to check that it moved freely. It should move freely, if it does fit it back on the machine and it should be silent. If you cant get it to move freely I suggest a replacement brush. Tip: I used a blunt knife and placed it through the belt to avoid removal of the belt. Good luck. Cheers Jason
