Could be the cord, overload protector for the motor, or the motor itself.

Why are the brushes turning until they are placed on the carpet?


The brushes are not powered by a motor but by the exhaust of the vac motor. They must have lots of air to even turn at a slow RPM. You may have a lint blockage on the air which cuts the volume of air to the turbine that spins the brushes. Look for lint on the filter. I recall it was on the operators left side on the base of the machine towards the front.

High pitched sound when power on


I had a vacuum cleaner that did the same thing. My vacuum had three suction levels. The noise level would decrease as I lowered the level. I also noticed that when I turned the vacuum off the sound didn't stop instantly, it wound down/faded off as the motor slowed down. I found the problem to be the bearings in the main motor. I've been told that the motor that powers the carpet brushes can also make the sound if the motor bearing fails.

My Bissell proheat 2x will not stop spaying when the trigger is depressed, This happens only after the power is turned on and continues until the tank is drained or the power is cut.


I assume you mean that once the trigger is depressed it won't go back to it's original position. Like it's stuck on. I would look in that area for a broken or missing spring. I would also trace the control from the trigger to the valve that it opens and see that there isn't any build up keeping the valve open.

The brush is slow or won't turn at all on my Dyson animal DC32. I have cleaned everything including the filtres, there doesn't seem to be anything blocking the pipes. I am in Spain and there


Hi Jennifer,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC32 Animal. If you've been unable to resolve this issue after checking for blockages and washing the filter, I'd encourage you to give the Dyson Spain Helpline a call on 902305530. Alternatively, if you email asistencia.cliente@dyson.com, someone will be in touch as soon as possible to provide assistance.

We'll look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,

Hi there,

Sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC27. In case you haven't already tried this, make sure you press down firmly on the power switch when turning the cleaner on. If the switch still won't stay down, it's probably best if you get in touch with us directly. One of our experts will be happy to run through some troubleshooting over the phone with you, and recommend the best course of action. You can call us free on 08002980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US).
