Hi There,

The Dyson DC15 All floors is actually a 2 motor upright, meaning the suction motor is separate from the motor that rotates the brushes. The first thing you should check is the reset switch on the brushes. Behind the brushes there is a little red pole, push this down to reset the brushes, and see if this fixes the problem.

If not, then you may have a bad on/off switch for the roller brushes. Try pushing the switch next to the main on/off switch that controls the brushes up and down, up and down, can you hear the brushes attempt to come on at all? If you could hear them come on even somewhat, this means that your brush on/off switch is bad and needs to be replaced.

If nothing happens when you push this switch, it still may be bad and not getting any power at all to it.

Does the machine make any sound at all when you try to turn the brush switch on and off?

Please try pushing the reset switch, then testing the on/off switch first. If neither one of these solutions works, please just use the comment field on the repair and let me know, and I can then walk you through some more advanced diagnosing of your machine.

Thanks,

Chris Jones

The bristles will not turn when vacume is on and I try to vacume


Alot of those vaccums have a little drive belt on them. You might look for that. Also some string might be caught on the side of the brushes.

My dison dc25 beader switch does not work?


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

If your DC25's brush bar won't rotate, please follow the steps shown in the video below to check the cleaner head for obstructions:

Please note, the brush bar will never rotate when the vacuum is standing upright. Make sure you recline your machine into the normal vacuuming position before testing it. You may also want to press the silver brush control switch (next to the red on/off switch) twice to ensure it's correctly engaged.

If you continue to have difficulty, please get in touch with us directly so our experts can provide further assistance. If a repair or a replacement part is needed, we can also confirm if this is covered under our 5-year guarantee. You can reach us by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Hoover S3755 WindTunnel Bagless Canister Vacuum brush not spinning


The belt might be streched or broken,also you could have dirt in the bearings on each end of the brush bar. either one of those will cause it not to turn. You will have to remove the brush bar to check that is does not have debris in it. you cant tell from just looking at it still in the vacume.

Rotating brushes don't spin.


Turn it over and pull out the brush holding assembly and insure that the master brush's stem is not broken off in the socket. The socket is geared to the vacum operated turbine that powers the brushes. There is the air input located next to the brushes and the filter might be clogged. If no air is being sucked into this red filter then it will have no vacum to turn the brushes. Insure that the flap is not closed behind the input filter. The flap is controlled by the brushes on selector switch.

Rotating Floor Brush Isin't spinning


It appears that the end of the brush is getting jammed with hairs, treads, and/or dust or the belt may be worn. Try taking the brush out and hold it by the ends and try to turn it. It should turn quite easily if it is working good. If not try taking the ends off and clean them out. Also, make sure the belt is good.

How do i change the belt on the bissell powersteamer 1697w????


Ok taking the cover off is good. I believe the the little red thing is the beater bar. This beater bar has brushes on it an extends the width of the vacum. Pull the beater bar out straight. Some times it is tight. Next is to place the new belt around the spindle in the back and slide the beatrer bar into the belt. No twists! Besure to have the beater bar with the seperated area with no brushes inline with the belt.Now place the beater bar in place. Make sure you turn the beater bar so on the side the slotted portion slides all the way in place. Replace your cover. Turn it on and try it.
I believe this will work. Let me know.
