I just cracked this. The cover can be prised off using a flat-blade screwdriver. There is a little slot for this. I imagine there is a proper tool for the job, because it's a bit difficult and a bit frightening, but it does come off. I couldn't do the same with the larger cover on the other side, though. My brush wasn't rotating, so I squirted as much WD40 as I dared in as many orifices as I could find, and, lo and behold, on reassembly it started working again.

How to I fix the stuck power cord on the Dyson DC23 Turbine Head Animal?


Hi Saule, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear your DC23 Turbine Head's cord seems to be stuck. If there's an issue with the cord reel mechanism, your machine may need a repair.

We'd be happy to help you arrange this, and will also be able to confirm if this is covered under your Dyson parts and labour warranty. Please note, we would advise against trying to repair the machine yourself in case damage is caused - if your vacuum is within our warranty period, this could also void any remaining cover.

When you have a moment, please give us a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU) to discuss your options with our experts.

We'll look forward to speaking with you.

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).

Hi Jyn, it's Jack at Dyson.

The rotating brush bar in DC23's Turbine head is powered by the vacuum's airflow. From what you've described, it sounds like there may be a blockage somewhere in the machine that's affecting the performance.

To locate and remove any blockages, please take a look at our online Support guide and follow the steps shown on each of the pages: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc23/dc23-animal/my-machine-is-not-working/check-telescopic-wand-step-1-turbine-head

In normal use the pre-filter should be washed at least once every 3-6 months, using cold water without detergent. Even a filter that appears to be externally clean may still need a wash as fine dust particles may be contained within the filter material. The correct method is shown in the video attached. Make sure you allow the filter to dry completely for at least 24 hours before replacing it.

We would advise against attempting to modify the Turbine head in any way, as this could cause damage not covered under guarantee. If you'd like some further advice from our experts please feel free to give us a call - our contact numbers are: 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

How do I dismantle the telescopic wand on my DC20? I've tried washing it but the smell is still present. I think it needs separated


Hi Gerardette, it's Jack at Dyson.

We would strongly advise against washing or attempting to dismantle your DC20's wand. Not only can this cause damage as it's not designed to be taken apart, but the water can actually increase any odour coming from the wand as it may not be possible to dry it effectively. Attempting any maintenance not shown in the User guide could also void any guarantee remaining on your machine.

I would encourage you to contact our experts directly for some advice - you can reach us by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Hi how do you dismantle the head turbine for the Dyson Hoover DC80 as i need to clean it and i have no idea how to dismantle it!


There are two (or is it three) plastic screws on the underside of it. This allows it to be partially split so you can clean the area around the brush roll.
To strip it further needs a Torx T15 bit, but I don't advise doing that unless you know what you are doing and are confident about the re-assembly.
Cleaning around the brush roll area is all most people need to do with these and that is a simple matter.

DC07s have two drive belts that turn the brush bar - one connects the output of the motor to the clutch, the other connects the clutch to the brush bar.
You can check the latter simply by removing the sole plate and looking. Unfortunately the other belt is hidden under a plastic cover, so you cant see if it is okay or not without some dismantling. This cover is not easy to remove and requires a Torx driver to under the securing screws.
If, after removing the cover, the other belt is okay, then you have a faulty clutch. New clutches are available on eBay reasonably cheaply, but again good tools and DIY skills are required.
Have a look atwww.dysonmedic.com which has some excellent info on dismantling and repairing a DC 07, but unless you have access to such tools, and feel confident to tackle it, it's probably time to call Dyson or a Vacuum repairer.

Turbine head of my Dyson DC08 does not spin


This response is likely too late coming, however for others the problen appears to be the same as the fault with my turbine head which was that the turbine fan had become loose on its spindle. With no pressure on the brushes, friction would allow the fan to turn and drive the brushes via the belt. The faulty part is not available separately however I have repaired mine using araldite glue. Other things to check is for a worn belt. Cheers.
