If it has a clutch, there will be a knob on the base that turns the brush drive on and off. It's on the right hand side as you stand behind the machine. Depending on the model, this may be labeled "carpet", "hard floor", "off", "auto", and probably other things I can't remember. It moves automatically to the off position when the handle is upright.

Hi, the first thing to check is the bearing at the end of the brush bar, take the belt off and spin the brush round with your hand to see if it makes a noise.

The belt on my Dyson is making a terrible loud grinding sound after I removed the brush roller.


The sound is the clutch mechanism. That is a safety feature. It sounds like you have trapped the belt when you reinstalled it. If not, the brush roller bearings may be seized?
Take it apart again, spin the brush roller in your hand. Make sure it is free. When you reassemble it, before you refit the sole plate, turn the brush a few times with your fingers to make sure the belt finds its home on the roller. Only then refit the sole plate. Turn it again when fitted before you run it to make sure the brush is turning freely.
Then, make sure the clutch is engaged, see this article for more on clutches: DC14 clutch and brush roller

The brush bar will not spin. The belts melt when I turn it on and the belt drive is hot to touch with smoke coming out.


The belt is rubbing the foot plate.Check to see if the foot plate is damaged.Allso check the bearings in the brush bar are free and spin without the belt on.If you cant spin the brush bar by hand with the belt not attached then your bearings are seized.Get a new brush bar

Brush not revolving


Hi there,
The basic reasons for the brush not turning are as follows
problem with the bearings of the brush roller
problem with the belts
problem with the clutch
Or the vacuum is set to Hard Floors.
I have made a video of how to sort out problems with the bearings, brush, clutch etc
Have a look at my video and if it helps you please leave a comment, testimonial or maybe a box of chocolates :)
If you figure out that you need parts I would encourage you to check out nelsonvacuums or vacuumspot.
Hope this helps

Not picking up as brushes not turning,the belt is not broken.


obviously if it is making the same old noises then the motor is running so no fault there, the brush only rotates when handle is lent over for pushing the DC14 (ie not when using the pipe and tools) the only other thing that stops the brush rotating is the hard floor/carpet selection on the right of the unit. make sure that hasn't rotated.

If all else fails your brush is seized and you will burn the belt out soon so unclip the brush cover and clean up the roller but try not to disturb it's position unless you have to as it's a tight fit on the belt

I have a dyson dc07 with a malfuncitoning clutch diagnosed here on fixya. I've replaced the clutch and the grinding noise when the clutch is engaged for carpet and non rotating brush problem presists. This...


Greetings from GoVacuum,

If you have replaced the clutch already, then this can really only be one other problem, and that is the roller brush. If the roller brush's bearing have locked up, and the brush is no longer spinning, this is going to cause the clutch to make that horrible grinding noise, and a lot of people incorrectly think automatically that the clutch needs to be replaced.

Here's a very easy way that you can test the roller brush on your Dyson to see if it may have gone bad. In 10 years of fixing and selling vacuum cleaners, I have never seen such a cheap roller brush that's in the Dyson DC07 models with clutches, unfortunately this is notorious problem we see on this particular model.

Ok, so to test out the brush, make sure the vacuum is unplugged, and turn it upside down. Remove the 3 plastic screws on the bottom plate, and remove the bottom plate to expose the brush completely.

You may then simply pull upwards on the roller brush, and take the brush out of the belt that is wrapped around it. After the brush has been completely removed from the vacuum cleaner, hold the brush with only your pointer fingers in each hand, and only put your pointer fingers on the outside of the bearing caps on each side of the roller brush.

While holding only the bearing caps with your fingers, try to spin the brush with your thumbs. The brush should spin freely in your fingers, and you should get a good 5 or 6 rotations with each spin.

If the brush doesn't spin, then your roller brush has gone bad. Espcecially with home that have long haired pets, or females, the hair gets between the bearing cap and the bearing inside and causes the plastic caps that are covering the bearings to heat up, ultimately causing the bearing caps to melt, and finally the bearings sieze, and the brush will no longer spin freely which is why the clutch makes that awful noise.

Good news is that the roller brush is not as expensive or as difficult to replace as the clutch was. You may purchase the DC07 roller brush here;
Genuine Dyson DC-07 Roller Brush for Models That Use a Clutch Part # 904174-01

If your roller brush does spin, then I'm baffled as to what could be causing the clutch to make noise, but I'd like to try and help you figure this out.

Please send me an email to chris.jones@govacuum.com, or just request a clarification request here on Fixya, and I'd be more then happy to try and diagnosis this Dyson further for you.

Thank you so much, I hope that this helps you.

Most of these have a clutch system, the only other thing would be that it may need a new brush sometimes the brush rollers have hair and string in the bearings that melt and make the brush a sold non moving piece

Brushes not working


brushes not turning are usually caused by the turbine bearings have seized. The turbine cost is about $35 average. on the bottom you can check a pull out filter to clean. there are also 2 screws that are recessd check by hand for tightness that hold the turbine. checkthe brushes for cleaning and free of debris. check the square shaft on the brushes as well. take it to a trusted vac shop who works on hoovers if you are not mechanically inclined for this type of repair.

Probably should just go to a repair shop and they should be able to order one for you, that is if they are available by themselfs. Or if you have a store where you live that sells vacuum parts, you could go there.
