Not sure about this particular unit, but some have breakers that are button like. In order to re-set, they have to be pulled out then pushed back in to re-set. You should be able to hear or feel a click. Hope this helps.

My DC24 will not switch from floor to carpet mode? Roller is not stuck or full of lint. Bagless is clean.

Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC24. If the brushbar will not rotate when the brushbar switch is pressed, you may need to reset the machine.

With the cleaner facing you, you'll find a button in the red recess on the left-hand side of the cleaner head. Press this in until you hear an audible 'click' - it may help to use something like the eraser-end of a pencil to do this.

The brushbar will never rotate when you have the machine standing in the upright position, so please make sure you have it reclined into the vacuuming position before testing it after pressing the reset button.

This should resolve the issue - however, if you do need any further assistance or advice, please call us free on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US), so we can help.

Best wishes,

My Dyson DC17 gets carpet fibers stuck between the brush bar belt and where the belt attaches to the machine (not the brush bar end of the belt) Then it shreds the carpet fiber and I have to tear it apart...

Hi there,

If you're concerned that the amount of fibre your carpet is shedding seems to be excessive, I'd recommend consulting your carpet manufacturer to determine if this is normal, as the shedding period will vary according to carpet type and usage. They may also be able to offer advice on the best way to vacuum it, as they sometimes suggest vacuuming certain carpet types using suction only.

Kind regards,

Did you press the reset button? There will be a reset button either on the back of the unit just below the bulkhead or on the top side of the base.

Locate the reset button and press; this should allow the carpet attachment to resume operation.

I caught a shoestring in the brush and now it won't turn. I pressed the "overload protector reset" button but it's just loose and seems to have no effect.

Hi. I think it may still need resetting. Keep pushing reset. If this does not help remove the brush the turn it on. It should start. If so, there still may be somethng in the brush bearing that is stopping it from turning. It could also be that the belt broke when you got the lace. Let me know please, hope this helps. Chris
