Right next to the power switch is a switch that will turn on/off the beater brush. Push firmly on this button and see if that turns it back on. It will turn itself off if it has too much resistance on it from getting tangled in something like a long carpet fiber that wraps itself around the beater brush. Check and make sure it's not bound up by something and then press the on/off button for the beater brush.

    Thank you so much!! I had no idea this button was even functional. I was reviewing my Dysons manual for a reset button because I saw it referenced to on the internet. I appreciate your brains!

How do I hook up the furniture brush attachment?


I have the same one. I am assuming that you are using the air turbine brush attachment that came with the vacuum. There really isn't anything special to it. You can either stick it on the end of the wand, or remove the wand and insert it directly on the end of the hose. It appears that it is supposed to 'click' into something but that is not the case on the DC17 model. It does click into the hose and/or handle of different models as shown in this video.

How do I get a new belt to repace a broken one in a DC23 turbine head


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

The Turbine head's belt is not a part we would ask a customer to fit, and therefore it's not available as an individual component. It's part of the turbine drive mechanism, and we'd advise against attempting to dismantle this as it could result in damage to the Turbine head. If the Turbine head happened to fail within the Dyson warranty period we should normally be able to replace it, as long as it's been used and maintained according to the User guide. Out of warranty, a replacement Turbine head could be chargeable.

If you'd like some additional help or advice from our experts you're welcome to contact us directly on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Dyson blueprint beater bar won't turn


The Dyson DC 17 has a rug / floor switch on the head of the vacuum. Please check to make sure the switch is in the Rug position. If the brush roller still does not turn then you have broken the belt and need the following part.

Dyson DC17 Animal does not have enough suction from the wand handle to power the mini turbine head. The wand handle has very little suction.


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

It sounds as though your wand/hose assembly is blocked. Try following the blockage procedure in your user guide or visit our website's support section where you can use our self help guide to diagnose problems.

Power head not working


There is a gray button next to the red "power on" button that powers the brush unit. If the unit has tripped the reset for some reason it must be reset. This can be done by holding the gray button down for ten seconds while the unit is not running. When you power it up after this reset, the brush unit should run.

Dyson dc17 animal


on the bottom plate are 3 spots, one in the center and one at each corner, that need a flat head screw driver to loosen. turn left to unlock, this will remove the plate so you can clear the debris from the brush.
