Very gently 'wiggle', and then rotate to the left. Never apply too much force.

Brush on a Dyson DC35 stops rotating. I cleared it of any debris, cleaned off the roller, no obstructions in the tube, and it kept doing it.


Hi Aaron, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC35. If the replacement motorised cleaner head hasn't resolved the issue, there could be an issue with the wand, main body or battery. We're happy to help you check for this, which should avoid you having to order further parts until we've determined which part is actually at fault. We can also confirm whether or not your machine is still covered under the Dyson warranty.

When you have your DC35 fully charged and easily to hand, please contact our experts so we can talk you through some simple diagnostic checks. You can reach the Dyson Customer Helpline by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

We'll look forward to speaking with you.

Now that I just fixed my Lux Legacy canister vacuum, I need help on my other Electrolux Regency Series upright! The vacuum works fine but the rotating brush does not work and the brush motor does not turn...


There are a couple rectangular holes on the bottom of the power nozzle, beside the wheels. These have tabs in them that need released with a standard screwdriver.
rogerpotts_10.jpg Once they release, turn the vacuum over and lift cover of power nozzle at the back. This pulls the front of the cover out of the lip on the "bumper".
Once this is done, you'll need to unscrew the screw at each end of the brush. Lift the brush out and thoroughly clean it, including the ends.
rogerpotts_9.jpg
Check the wiring to make sure they're connected to the terminals of the motor. Also, check the belt for wear and tear. These belts can last for five years or more, but if it looks bad a good time to replace it is while you have the power head apart.
When reassembling the vacuum, ensure the belt is fitted properly around the motor shaft and brush.
Insert the front of the cover first, ensuring the edge fits neatly beneath the lip on the bumper all the way around. It takes a little manipulating to press the back into place. Make sure both tabs click into the locked position. Turn the vacuum over and reinstall screws. Try to rotate brush by hand a few times.
At this point, plug the vacuum in and turn it on. If the power head doesn't run, press the reset button. If the power head motor still doesn't run, it could be due to loose or disconnected wires that lead to the reset switch, a bad reset switch, or even a bad motor. The vacuum needs to be taken to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store for further diagnosis and repair.

How to replace belt on lux 4000 vacuum?


The following is for most models of the Aerus Electrolux UR models.

Lay the vacuum on it's front so you can see the bottom of the powerhead as shown below. Befrore going further, hold your hand straight and move your hand across the opening for the brush. If the bristles don't make good contact, the brush also needs replaced.
Remove the four screws. Using a flathead screwdriver, place it into the two rectangle openings (shown with red arrows) near the wheels and gently pry on tab to release the top of the power head.


rogerpotts_5.jpg
Flip machine over and gently lift back of cover which will release the front. Lift off and set aside.

This is what you should see. Remove the two screws at the ends of the brush. Check carefully how the ends of the brush fit in. Gently lift out brush. This is a good time to clean entire interior of the power head. Install new belt over motor shaft and teeth of brush: set brush into place. Insert screws. Check tension of the belt.
rogerpotts_6.jpg
Replace cover of power head, being sure to settle front in just beneath the lip of the front of the base first. Press down until it "clicks" into place. Turn machine over and insert and tighten screws.

Unplug the vacuum then pull the bottom off the head and clean the brush. Check for debris on the brush and around the ends of the brush. Insure the brush moves freely. Check the motor by turning it by hand to see if it rotates freely. Check the belt to sdee if it is tight. When belts get old the will sometimes stretch and won't work properly. Hope this helps.

Hello, my name is Ben. Sorry to inform you, but when you turned the crank it turned the camshaft which is why the lifters are in the wrong place now. You will need to set the camshaft timing and re-install your rockers and push rods. You should also check the push rods to make sure none of them are bent. I hope this helps you to get your engine running properly, Ben.

Problem washer will not wash or spin


If the drum does not turn by itself then there are two things which could be wrong.
1. the belt which drives the drum is broken or come off.
2. the motors brushes which wear down now need replacing.

REMEMBER TO UNPLUG BEFORE STARTING ANYTHING!

To do the belt...about half an hour...
1. UNPLUG the washer.
2. check you've unplugged.
3. Open the top of the machine - see the sides of the lid about 10 cm from front, remove plastic caps on each torx head, undo torx. (torx set required)
4. Remove concrete block from top - large spanner is required - remember the sequence so you can replace later.
5. Lean over the drum and see the large drive wheel.
If you see a broken belt then remove it and re-order one from hotpoint...see http://www.4hotpoint.co.uk/cgi-bin/product.pl?PID=634224&brand=&model=wma40&part=belt.

6. to replace belt - see motor shaft at bottom of unit. Dangle new belt round shaft of motor and gently pull so it does not come off motor.(This is not easy!)
7. At the same time Ease one side of the new belt back on to drive wheel on the back of the drum.
8. Turn Drive wheel until belt is on.(This is not easy and requires alot of hand strength)
9. Replace concrete block with bolt and spanner in reverse sequence you removed it.
10. replace lid, torx and cover for torx.

To do the brushes - about half an hour...
1. UNPLUG the washer.
2. check you've unplugged.
3. Tip the machine carefully up so you can get to the underside
4. Pull cables off the existing brushes.
5. Remove the brushes with a cross head screwdriver. Each brush as two screws holding in on, but the brushes are keyed into the motor chassis. They are fiddly.

You should be able to do both without disturbing the motor.

To do the brushes - about half an hour...
1. UNPLUG the washer.
2. check you've unplugged.
3. Tip the machine carefully up so you can get to the underside
4. Pull cables off the existing brushes.
5. Remove the brushes with a cross head screwdriver. Each brush as two screws holding in on, but the brushes are keyed into the motor chassis. They are fiddly.

To do the belt. + as long as your patience lasts...
1. UNPLUG the washer.
2. check you've unplugged.
3. Open the top of the machine - see the sides of the lid about 10 cm from front, remove plastic cap on each torx head, undo torx. (torx set required)
4. Remove concrete block from top - large spanner is required - remember the sequence so you can replace later.
5. Lean over the drum and see the large drive wheel. To pop the belt off, turn the wheel forcing the belt to the edge of the wheel. It will eventually come off.
6. to replace belt - see motor shaft at bottom of unit. Dangle belt round shaft of motor and gently pull so it does not come off.(This is not easy!)
7. At the same time Ease one side of the new belt back on to drive wheel on the back of the drum.
8. Turn Drive wheel until belt is on.(This is not easy and requires alot of hand strength)
9. Replace concrete block with bolt and spanner in reverse sequence you removed it.
10. replace lid, torx and cover for torx.
