You need a new belt. In order to change it, turn the machine compleatly upside down and place the head on a counter, handle on the floor.
There is a L shaped base plate to remove that has 5 screws in. Once the base plate is off, you see the brush roller and a silver shaft directly back from where the belt would ride. Remove the brush roller, place the new belt, Dirt Devil Style 5 ( see link below ) on to the shaft. Then insert the brush roller, so the belt is on the raised carved out section of the brush roller. Grab the brush roller at each end and stretch it till you are able to put the brush roller back into the base. Turn the brush roller backwards 3 compleat turns and the same forward to seat the belt.
Replace the base plate and you're done.

The belt is still good but the brush is not spinning. The motor sounds fine. what would cause that?


Have you checked the brush seats???? Where the brush sits in the vacumn head,...is it clean and not full of rubbish/ debris? I mean,...is it free and you can turn the brush by hand freely?

The vacumn runs but brush dose not turn belt is good. It's a dyson 110 us c 10417


Now is it air driven or belt driven? It could be the belt that's not turning the brush. Check if the belt is loose or is broken. If it's air driven, then check and see how the condition of the bearings are. If it doesn't roll smoothly then you need to replace the brush roller. If it does roll smoothly then check if there's a blockage in the line.

Odd noise coming from central vacumn cleaner


The rattling noise, will likely increase when the head is flipped upside down. Generally means you have a stone caught in the belt or a blown or stripped tooth on the belt.
If you gently squeeze the outside edges of the light housing it will pop off to reveal two screws to remove the lid. Check for other screws at the neck of the power head. Once removed your belt and brush will be visible. Remove the brush roll with end caps and flip the belt inside out rolling it between your finger , look for cracks or a floppy or missing tooth. Replace if any sign of wear.
Inspect the dust caps on your brush. There is a washer under each, likely buried in lint. Do not lose as these are a spacers for each end of the brush. Clean shaft and lube with WD40. Spray caps with the same. vacuum loose grit and dust bunnies away from motor and reinstall, your red button must align with the lid when replacing

Brush will not turn


The most common problem is the handle isn't screwed in tight enough when the machine was assembled. Try tightening it down all the was and the electrical connections will then seat properly.

My dyson vacumn is hard to push on carpeting. How do i fix it?


This happens when the bristles in the brush roll get worn down too short. Put in a new brush roll and the machine will pull itself over the carpet, so you hardly have to push at all.

Power brush will only operate on push stroke


If the motor runs, the circuit breaker is working. If it only works on the push stroke, you probably have burnt contacts where the handle and/or wands and/or power head connect. When you push, the contacts are pressed together; when you pull, they are separated and the motor loses power. The only solution is to replace the connector parts.

Fantom twister wont work light is on


When you say, "just stopped", did the MOTOR stop operating and there's no sound from it at all? Or, is the motor still working or sounds like it does, and it stopped vacumning?

If the MOTOR stopped, most likely there is a short somewhere in the connection at the motor. Think 'repair shop'.
If the motor still runs and there's no VACUMN ACTION, think Roller Brush which operates by virtue of a rubber belt. Turn the machine on its side and turn it ON, keeping FINGERS !AWAY! from the roller area. If the Roller Brush is not moving it may be that the belt has slipped off or is broken or simply too loose to turn the Roller. Also sometimes debris such as strings, long hair, carpet strands/fibers will become wrapped around the roller especially next to the roller bearing/brace points, to the point of binding so tightly that the roller will no longer be able to actually roll which would now prevent it from 'Vacumning' or sweeping dirt and such up into the vortex of the vacumn chamber. In which case, !!UNPLUG!! the machine, use small scissors to cut away the material wrapped around the roller paying particular attention to the brace point areas.

No vacumn action


Is the roller turning, if not you may need a new belt and/or brush roll. Did you check the inlet by the brush roll?
