Check the filter screen to make sure it isn't clogged, if yours has that foam filter under the dirty water tank lid, there needs to be a 1/4 or so space beween the filter and the top of the lid. Other then that your turbine may be bad, that is what drives the brush block. Take the brush block out, is the shaft on it or did it get broken off, if it did, that shaft is what goes into the turbine and it can't turn if it is broken.

Dyson DC25 brush won't spin when touching the floor. If I lift it off the floor it spins, once it touches the floor it stops. Any idea what the problem is?


I can think of three things that could be wrong.

The easiest one is that the brush has hair and fluff wrapped around its bearing. This happened to me and was causing a burning rubber smell. Turn it over and remove the base plate. Lift the belt by putting a piece of cord under it and slide the brush out. Remove one end of the brush and slide the spindle out. Clean all the hair out and reassemble.

The internal drive belt is worn, or the nylon bush that it runs on.

The clutch is worn out.

The last two are not as easy to fix as the main drive belt is enclosed in the centre of the clutch. There are videos though that show you the process. Have a read and a watch, but try my first tip first.

    Tip

    Brush won't turn after cleaning out debris, belt is fine.


    I have the Dyson Animal, the purple one. I frequently have to take the bottom apart where the brush is at to cut all the threads and hair off the brush. This last time it would not spin afterward. As far as I know there is no reset button, however, I did find out that it was switched to bare floors and THAT is WHY the brush was not spinning. Once I switched it back to carpet all was well. I have had this for years and never knew that the brush did not spin when it was on bare floor setting. Hope this helps!

    Our DC41 is impossible to push on carpet. Is there an adjustment to do? Almost like there is too much suction.


    See if the following information can help.

    CARPETS OR HARD FLOORS

    • The brush bar will always default to 'ON' (spinning) each time you switch the

    appliance 'ON' and recline it for cleaning.

    • The brush bar will not rotate when the appliance is upright.

    • To switch the brush bar 'OFF' (e.g. for delicate rugs and hard floors):

    - switch the appliance 'ON'

    - recline the appliance

    - press the brush bar 'ON/OFF' button - the brush bar will stop spinning.

    • The brush bar will automatically stop if it becomes obstructed. See 'Brush bar -

    clearing obstructions'.

    • Before vacuuming your flooring, rugs and carpets, check the manufacturer's

    recommended cleaning instructions.

    • Some carpets may fuzz if a rotating brush bar is used when vacuuming. If this

    happens, we recommend vacuuming in 'hard floor' mode and consulting with

    the flooring manufacturer.

    • The brush bar on the appliance may damage some carpet types. If you are
    unsure, turn 'OFF' the brush bar.

    Liz thank you so much for the quick fix. Moving the carpet/floor knob a few times reset the belt. My method of slamming it against the dresser did not produce the desired results.

    The brushes won't spin. I put new brushes on and it still doesn't spin.


    Usually when the brushes won't turn it is due to a bad turbine. Insert a screwdriver into the square hole that the pin on the brush fits into, and see if it turns. If it is seized up, the turbine assembly will need to be replaced.

    Brush roller not spinning. belt, spindle okay. roller taken out and cleaned, no thread. replaced but no dice. ???


    Use only BISSELL Style 10 Replacement Belts (#32074) in your BISSELL PowerForce Bagless.
    1. Unplug cleaner from electrical outlet.
    2. With Rotating Floor Brush removed from vacuum cleaner, grasp old Drive Belt and remove from Motor Pulley. Discard old Drive Belt.
    3. Place new Drive Belt over Motor Pulley and stretch other end over Rotating Floor Brush in the space between the bristles.
    4. Place ends of Rotating Floor Brush down into slots on sides as shown.
    5. Turn Rotating Floor Brush by hand several times in the direction of Motor Pulley. If properly installed, Drive Belt will center itself on Rotating Brush.
    6. Reposition Brush Cover and snap back into place. Check to be sure all three latches are secured.
    7. When you turn on the vacuum, do you see the motor that spins the belt spinning at the bottom? If not, it sounds like you may have a burned out motor.

    Roller not spinning on hard floors


    after 2 weeks it should be still under warranty. but my guess is you have hair etc wrapped around the brush tip vac so you can see brush(es) remove all string,hair etc... from around the brush area (may have to remove bottom to get all the hair etc... stuck around it. it also may have been jammed up pretty tight and continued use could snap the belt or burn out motor
