This sounds like your Brush Turbine Gear has gone bad to me. Especially when you say that it has a funny odor to it, this is a tell-tale sign that the turbine gear has gone bad, especially if the rest of the machine is running fine, spraying and sucking water back up.

Here's a link that I've written previously that explains to you step by step on how you can diagnosis the problem on your Hoover SteamVac of your brushes stop spinning, as well as a step by step guide on how to replace the turbine gear if that's what the problem is.

Brush makes noise when engaged, I put a new belt


You don't say what kind of noise, but if it is a bumping noise or squealing noise, make sure both ends of the brush roller are clean. It may be binding.

Why is my DC24 not working


You may have an object caught between the belt and brush roll.
Remove brush roll cover and see if that is the case.

Dc25 animal brush is not spinning,belt is ok,and thers no strainge noises or smells from it.


Hi Kevin,

Thank you for your inquiry. I am sorry to hear about this issue with your DC25 brush bar. Assuming you have already tried cleaning the brush of any obstructions, following the instructions below may resolve the issue:

1) Plug your machine into the power outlet
2) Locate the grey brush bar button next to your power button
3) With the machine turned off, press and hold the brush button down for 10 seconds
4) Release the grey brush button, step on the foot pedal to recline the machine
5) Press the power button to power on the machine
6) Check to see if the brush rotates

If you have any additional questions or require further assistance, please contact our US Dyson Helpline toll-free at 1-(866) 693-9766 or our UK support colleagues at 0800 298 0298. Thank you very much for your time.

I took the vacuum apart and cleaned it. Now there is an odor coming from the round filter and the vacuum is not picking anything up.


  • hi there
  • Does the odor smell like burnt rubber....if so you may have burned out the belt which is common. The filter can smell if you have pets and the machine will blow the odor back in to the room after the filter gets older.Check to see that the roller brush is spinning when it is turned on if not shut it off and try to turn it manually with your hands. If it turns very easily the belt gone if it is almost impossible to turn you need a new roller brush.You can replace the filter to help with the smell but if it is the belt you smell it will go away in time. Also make sure that you have the container on perfectly as if it is not it will not create a perfect seal and you will have very little suction. The other thing you can check is the hose to see if the suction is good through it. If the hose has good suction then the power head may be plugged with something and you will need to get a screwdriver and take the bottom plate off the same way as if you were changing the belt and then you can look for a blockage as well as access the belt and roller brush. I hope this was helpful to you ...good luck

Panasonic MC-CL673 vacuum is not getting up to speed and smells


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. This is causing the smell (burning rubber). I don't believe it is your motor. :-)

The brush will not turn. It makes a grinding


It might be that the drive belt is stretched, broken or worn. It can cause the brush to not turn and it will make funny noises. I would try changing the belt. You can get a replacement here:

Dyson DC14 all floors.


sept 30,08 bought dc14 all flloor. After 3 to 4 uses it started making lots of noise when on carpet setting. I examined the roller brush and it was cracked at one end. I returned it Oct 13 ,08 and got another dc 14 all floor. Now this one after 2 uses has the same problem only a larger crack in the brush and a small piece of the brush broke off. Very dissapointed.
