No, it is not normal for the brushroll to stop that often. You may need to clear any thread, etc from the brushroll underneath the vacuum. Remove the screws from bottom of unit, stand unit upright, turn height adjustment dial to either side to allow hood to come off. Check the belt for any stress marks, stretching, etc. Replace the belt if necessary.

I cleaned the brush head to my Dyson 24 and all was well but now the brush roller does not spin. Have pushed reset button several times. Can feel it vibrate but not engage.


The belt and clutch are probably worn or broken. Instead of a normal brush roller belt like most vacuums have, Dyson designed these with a plastic clutch between the motor and brush roller, so you can turn the brush off for hard surfaces. The belt from the motor to the clutch is replaceable, but it is the belt least likely to wear out or break. The belt to the brush roller, which is the one that takes all the beating and encounters all the dirt and grit is plastic welded into the clutch and cannot be replaced. You have to replace the entire clutch when that belt goes. On a normal vacuum, this is a $3.00 to $5.00 repair. On a Dyson, the part is around $25.00 retail, and you have to tear half the vacuum apart to get to it. You don't need much in the way of tools to repair it, as most of the vacuum simply snaps together, although you have to take care that you don't break the plastic parts getting them apart. You do need a torx screwdriver to remove the clutch housing. I've done two of these in the last week, both with the same issue.

HOw do I get the brush roller to operate on my NV400


Hi, it's Allie from Crucial Vacuum!

To make your Shark Rotator Professional Upright Vacuum's roller brush to run properly, make sure the nozzle or floor base is flat against the floor and the unit's handle is tilted back and engage the brushroll setting. If your unit's red light is illuminated on the floor power nozzle, your unit has a blockage and will not allow the roller brush to run efficiently. Check your unit for blockages, hair strands or debris tangled in the roller brush and/or dirty filters, these may all cause a blockage and loss of suction in your unit.

Last, make sure the canister is properly installed and engaged, making sure it is correctly making an electrical connection with the floor nozzle.

How to repair windtunnel hoover agitator that will not turn


Likely a broken belt. Also check the agitator brush roll bearings (in either end under the end caps) for hair, strong, thread, etc. as this will make the brush roll harder to turn and wear/break belts prematurely. If all these check okay, then observe the tensioning roller that causes the V belt (runs from the idler pulley to the brush roller) to be sure it is swinging down when the handle is released to hold tension on the belt, causing it to rotate. These tensioning rollers can break, but often are locked into the "Bare Floor" setting without the user noticing. Slide the carpet brush roll selector (located on top, next to the floor height slide adjustment) back and forth and make certain it is all the way into the "Carpet" setting to allow the tensioning roller to engage. [Note: The tensioning roller is always retracted (in the neutral or off position) when the handle is in the upright position. You must release the handle to allow this tensioing assembly to engage.]

When the vacum is set on the bare floor mode, the on/off light blinks and the roller brushes stop working


This is normal. The roller brushes aren't needes on bare floors. They are used to brush lint, hair, etc. from the carpet that the suction itself wouldn't get.

Brush bar is not turning when I turn on my dison vacum


Hi There,

The Dyson DC15 All floors is actually a 2 motor upright, meaning the suction motor is separate from the motor that rotates the brushes. The first thing you should check is the reset switch on the brushes. Behind the brushes there is a little red pole, push this down to reset the brushes, and see if this fixes the problem.

If not, then you may have a bad on/off switch for the roller brushes. Try pushing the switch next to the main on/off switch that controls the brushes up and down, up and down, can you hear the brushes attempt to come on at all? If you could hear them come on even somewhat, this means that your brush on/off switch is bad and needs to be replaced.

If nothing happens when you push this switch, it still may be bad and not getting any power at all to it.

Does the machine make any sound at all when you try to turn the brush switch on and off?

Please try pushing the reset switch, then testing the on/off switch first. If neither one of these solutions works, please just use the comment field on the repair and let me know, and I can then walk you through some more advanced diagnosing of your machine.

Thanks,

Chris Jones

Brush roller won't turn


On my Dyson, there is a brush reset button on the top right hand side (if you are looking at the front) that you can press to reset the brush. I was vacuuming and too lazy to move a toy and this worked for me once I freed the rope from the brush.
