Question about Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

1 Answer

Belt not turning

The belt on our DC07 isn't turning, though the motor seems to be running fine. The tension on the belt seems fine. We have two long haired dogs which is why we bought this model and mostly it works fine as long as we clean the dog hair off the brush regularly.
Please help!

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.

Rollar is not turning. Belt seems to have tension. Does not **** anything up off of the floor. Filters are clean but when we turn it on, the roller is not turning or sucking anything up off the floor.

Brush will not turn


Assume that the belt is broken to the power brush /head. Did you happen to smell burning rubber or see small pieces of black rubber? Look in your manual for replacing power head/brushes belt! With the unit off , try turning the brushes by hand and clean them off of debris, etc., as well while there. See if you feel some tension or hear the motor moving inside, indication that the belt is still attrached and if it doesn't seem to have any resistance and you see small pieces of rubber and /or, the band/belt may have just broke from normal usage. WalMart sells most types or your local vacuum repair facility.. check the Yellow pages and let your fingers do the walking.. Good luck

Hi my dyson dc07 animal has suction but the brush bar wont turn. If I turn it on there is a horrible noise. The belt is still fine


The belt is probably worn or stretched. When this happens the belt won't turn the roller brush when it is against the carpet. Here is a link for the manual and links for the belt you need:

Cyclone will not spin


Even thought the belt may look fine the belt still can be worn and therefore no turn the brush or the clutch. The belts you need are these here:

THE BRUSH DOESN'T SPIN BUT THE BELT IS ON IT.


this is a simple job for the mechanically savy person like you...Unplug the vacuum, use your hand to turn the brush, and watch the belt turn as well. Check the belt tension. Your problem would probably be clogged brush, belt-tension/misaligned brush or ultimately bad motor. If you can't handle it, get help from a friend or try appliance repair shop.

Belt stopped spinning but has tension onit. I suspect the transmission (?) is stuck in the upright position and keeping drive in neutral


could be the transmission....more likely the motor has seized.
easiest to remove the motor once cooled and check for power or turn by hand

Trying to replace roller brush on DC07 model


Hi the dyson is a bit strange with this the dyson engineers use a hook to put under the belt and pull it out to allow the brush to be removed I used a metal coat hanger to make the hook after seeing the dyson engineer when ours was under warranty if you make the hook with the wire doubled up it works fine for me hope this is of help Fred

Brushbar not rotating but vacuum has suction - belt not broke


At the point where the shroud is around the drive belt of the motor there is a screw that has to be remeoved. It is accessible through a hole in the housing that is inset about 3 1/2 inches. Once this is removed along with the 2 screws at the base of the clutch housing, the shroud can be removed. Interestingly enough, though, I cannot figure out how to replace the brush belt even though I feel the clutch is the broken piece. Anyway, a new clutch with belts runs about 35-60 USD.

My Dyson DC07 won't turn on!


you may have a broken belt. Bad news regarding all Dyson's. You can't replace just the belt your self. You have to purchase a new belt assembly which includes the gears. And it wont be cheap. I would call it a design flaw but i am sure that dyson calls it a profit scheme.
