Resolution for Quick Connect Power Nozzle: If you're vacuum is 2001 prior, chances are one of the two contacts in the power nozzle elbow have let go.

The elbow can be disassembled by removing the two screw covers. You will need a flat head and small star. Also, you need to release the retaining clip on the back of the elbow. You will have to remove the elbow completely if it needs replacement. You will then have to remove the top cover of your power nozzle. That is easily done by removing all screws in the bottom base of your nozzle. Once you remove your cover you should see 2-4 screws holding in the elbow

When you remove the cover, you will see metal contact rings and two contacts. If one of them isn't contacting the ring your power nozzle will not turn on. You can try shaping it back into place but from experience the new revised elbow that does away with that kind of connectivity is a lot more effective. The new elbow runs about $40-$60.

The beater brush will no longer drive under a load on short pile carpet


Have you tried changing the height adjustment? There should be a knob or lever that allows you to adjust the height of the beater brush to accommodate different carpet lengths. Even with a new belt, the brush will not spin if the height is too low. Try adjusting it all the way up, then while it is running, adjust it down until there is some resistance. The beater brush should just barely scrape the top of your carpet.

I was told by a previous repair man that there is a fuse in the beater bar that needed to be replaced.


Up to my experience in my Panasonic vacuum cleaner, if the beater bar is not working this could be because the 'Carpet/Floor' selector switch is in the 'OFF' or 'FLOOR' position. In both of these positions the beater bar will not rotate. Move the selector switch to the 'CARPET' position. When in this position the beater bar will rotate once the foot pedal is pressed.

If the selector switch is in the 'CARPET' position and the beater bar is still not rotating it could be that there is something entangled in the beater bar, or the belt is worn or broken.

To check this first unplug the vacuum cleaner

Inspect the beater bar and belts to ensure that there is nothing entangled in the beater bar and that the belts are intact and are not excessively worn. If the belts are excessively worn they may slip resulting in the beater bar not rotating.

The vacuum cleaners often have an overload protection system inside the nozzle, which stops the nozzle motor when the beater bar jams to prevent belt breakage. After clearing any lint build up or jamming you may need to reset the overload protection, by pressing the reset button on the top of the floor nozzle.

Why wont my carpet brush work, and why wont vacuum shut off?


I think you have two different issues, the power switch. Many of these are foot operated and have hard lives. Try to spray a bit of WD40 on the shaft of the switch and it may help but you could well be looking at replacement. As for the carpet brush, use a multimeter in the 200VAC setting and check voltage where the power goes to the wand and carpet brush. If there is 120 when on then move on to the attachment and measure there. Look for reset buttons (Not all have those - they disengage if it gets stuck - like a large length of twine, etc...) Next if not working, measure resistance going at the brush with your meter. It should show 100-200 ohms. If not the motor is dead. While at it, check continuity on the wire feeding the brush.

My Dyson - DC14 won't push on my new plush carpet, front end


Same issue: new plush carpet, 7 year old tried and true DC14, wouldn't push across regardless of beater brush on or off. Called Dyson this morning, they suggested removing the small gasket between the floor plate and the assembly holding the beater brush. It's about a 12' gasket just under the screws used to remove the floor plate. Pushing is still a bit stiff, but it is a definite improvement. Whew!

Carpet beater not turning on, rest of vacuum ok, reset button down


Is the PN motor not working, or just the brush not spinning. If it's the brush, a new belt is needed.
If the motor isn't working, it could be due to several things. Follow the trouble shooting steps below.
1. Check all connections from hose handle to PN for discoloration. Any parts showing discoloration or melted plastic need to be replaced.
2. Attach PN directly to the hose. If the motor works, there's a problem in the wand wiring/connections.
3. Attach the Sidekick directly to the hose. If it works, but the full sized PN doesn't, there's a problem in the PN. Problems could include: wiring, connections, bad motor, bad switch.
4. If neither Sidekick nor PN work, the problem is likely in the hose. Potential problems include: bad wiring, connections, or bad switch.
5. You can try another hose known to be good to test the PN. If it still doesn't work, the problem could be in the canister itself.

I strongly recommend taking it to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store for diagnosis and repair if needed.

My dyson dc17 amimal's main turbine head is not working, is there a reset button or any other solution? I don't think it is the belt!


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.

Ratchet noise, beater will not turn, belt not broken, in carpet mode the Dyson d07 makes huge ratchet noise and the belt will not turn the beater brush.


Ok, so I had the same ratching noise and took the advice of many sites directing me to clean the brush. But like most I cleaned the brush and the noise continues and the brush does not spin. Reluctant to take it to get serviced I dug a little deeper and now it works just fine. This is what you need to do as removing any hair from just the brush part will not be enough.
Remove the entire brush bar from the bottom of the Dyson, this means pulling the bar out of the drive belt. This is not to difficult just use a little muscle as the belt will stretch. Once the bar is out grasp hold of the two plastic end caps on the brush bar which the brush bar actual spins in. These two caps are connected by a slim metal rod which runs through the brush bar. Place one hand on each side and begin to twist and pull until one of the caps comes off. Once the cap is off of the one side you can pull the other cap from the other side through the brush bar as this cap will be the one attached to the slim bar I mentioned above. If like mine you will see a ton of hair wrapped around these caps and inside the ends of the brush bar. Clean them out as best as possible.
After you clean it out, run the cap with the rod back through the brush bar, attach the other cap and twist and push together. Make sure the caps lineup which each other just like they were when you pulled it out. You'll notice how much more freely the brush bar spins between the two caps then before you cleaned it. Now, pull on the drive belt and feed the brush bar back through and attach as it was to begin with. This did the trick for me.

Correct position of beater bar on a Dyson DC14?


I had the same problem. I removed the brush from the machine. The brush should move freely when removed. If it doesn't move freely, pull the ends from the brush, both ends come off(one will have a rod fixed to it). I would suggest you clean the ends and the inside of where the ends sit on the brush. I applied a little grease on both end housings(inside end housing) if no grease available try washing up liquid. Put the brush ends back on the brush. I then spun the brush to check that it moved freely. It should move freely, if it does fit it back on the machine and it should be silent. If you cant get it to move freely I suggest a replacement brush. Tip: I used a blunt knife and placed it through the belt to avoid removal of the belt. Good luck. Cheers Jason

Carpet Beater for Central Vac


Some of these types of hoses, if there is a male plug on the end that goes into the wall outlet, could be that one side of it is fused and will have to be replaced. When something happens like a short or a bad brush roll stall, this fuse will open up. If you supplied the model number I may habe been able to look it up and see. But if the hose end cuff comes off, then you can check it with an ohm meter to see if one side is open or not.
