Then your top thread tension is far too loose in relation to the bobbin thread.

First, check that the bobbin thread (the lower thread) pulls out with a little bit of tension. If it's hard to pull out then you have loaded the bobbin incorrectly or have a faulty bobbin case. If the bobbin thread seems fine then check that you have correctly run the top thread and have set the tension correctly. As you haven't stated a make and model it's impossible to give you more detailed instructions though.

Sucked up a string and now roller isnt moving


turn the unit off and unplug it - get a razor blade - turn the unit on its side or back which is easier for you to see the bottom of the cleaner and the string wrapped around the ball and connecting area - use the razor blade to cut only the strings and remove the string from the ball

Dyson Ball DC24 brush turns but is loose and makes a very loud noise. Brush seems to be hitting sides of vacume.


You need a new brush and end cap. The brush and end cap can wear or break in time as they are made of plastic. Spares available on Dyson web site.

Stiches are loose in the bottom side of the cloth,if i change the bobbin case....will it help? I can understand that tension of thread is the problem.....but don't know what to do


the case the bobbin goes into has a little spring on its side .. the spring has one or two screws. one screw adjusts tension on the spring .. the bobbin thread goes under that spring when it is properly threaded .. if the screw is loose or missing then replace the screw or tighten it a little so that thread pulled thru the bobbin case spring has a bit of drag .. if its too loose then you can tighten the screw a bit more ... if you tighten it too much then it will pull the top thread thru to the bottom .. if your adjustment screw or spring is missing then you can replace the bobbin holder .. the new one should have the spring in place and be properly tightened .. . often the adjustment screw is just loose or the thread is not positioned correctly in the bobbin case slot. .

This appears to be a loose connection. The below post was answered by highntools a while ago. It probably is related to you problem. That is why moving it back and forth makes it go on.
I have finally fixed my sister's dyson dc 15 beater bar problem. It was just 2 tiny broken wires connect to circuit board lead to the beater bar. The wires broke where they go through the black rubber gommet. You need a torx screwdriver tx 15 to remove 2 plastic covers to access the wires. When looking at the front of the vacuum, the gray covers located on the right side of the vacuum. 1 big cover with a black rubber gasket and other small gray cover is on the rotating ball area.

There have been several people who reported loose or burnt wires to be the culprit for the brush bar not working. The DC15 does not use a belt, but a motor that is control by the circuit board. And I really believe that in your instance, the problem is a loose wire between the circuit board and the brush motor.
