Hi.

Ensure drive selector knob is not stuck on park or stop when you lower handle to vacuum if it is pull handle back & turn knob by hand to drive position.

If you have done all this & still have no brush rotation then one of the clutch belts have snapped.
The clutch has 2 belts one you can see going around the brush & the other you cant see which goes clutch to motor.

To replace remove clutch unit then replace both belts is not easy to explain so go to this site http://dysonmanuals.llc.nu/
It has dyson service manuals covering lots of repairs you can do at home.

It could well be the dog hair. You'll need to remove the roller brush and completely clean it off with the hair which sounds like it has wrapped itself around the brush and the brush end washers. Check that the entire roller brush is completely clear and if any dirt is found at the sides, remove it.

Brush not working??? Belt is fine.


Even though the brush is spinning, you probably need to replace the belt2_bing.gif because it is stretched. It is probably slipping on the beater bar...

Brush won't turn


Even though the belt is still in tact, that doesn't mean that it is still good. The belt needs to be replaced with a new one because it is stretched. It is probably slipping on the beater bar.

The belt on my hoover cordless is not spinning when I turn it on


You need to replace the belt. Even though the belt may look fine it can be stretched and therefore it won' t turn the roller brush against the resistance of the carpet. You can get Hoover replacement belts here:

Main Brush Failure


first check if the brush motor is turning before you spend money on a new brush roller and belt. remove the belt by unscrewing the screws holding the brush cover ( the part touching the floor ) and slip the belt of the rotor. turn the vacuum on, and the brush on while the vacuum is in a reclined position. if the motor is not moving, you need a new motor.
