Also...doublecheck that your floor setting is on "Carpet"...the brush doesn't turn when it's on "Bare Floors".

Sounds like a broken belt may have been pulled up into the machine. Plan on replacing the belt and cleaning the beater brush. Remove the beater brush and clean off all debris, especially at both ends. You will find a square(?) piece at each end of the beater brush that holds it in place. This need to turn freely. Put a little WD40 on these where the center rod of the beater brush enters the small holders and turn by hand until they turn freely. Once this is done, assemble with new belt if needed, making sure the belt is put on properly.

SOURCE: rotating brush will not turn on my Dyson DC07

Yes I had the same problem on my animal Dysom. There is a button on the top of the dysom that turns the cacuum on. Right beside that button is another one that turns on and off the brush!!! Good luck!!! I accidently one day bumped that button and couldn't get my brush to work but after troubleshooting it, that was my solution.

SOURCE: Dyson 18 slim the rotating brush bar will not

If the DC18 has a proteted belt then it will have to be replaced by a Dyson engineer or repairer. If the cleaner has a removable sole plate where the beater bar is then remove it and replace the belt - sounds like the belt has snapped and needs to be replaced. if your DC18 is still relatively new it should still be under guarantee.

    SOURCE: dyson dc24 brushes do not work even when i depress the silver button

    Hi there Alison, it's Jack at Dyson.

    DC24 is equipped with a safety device which shuts off the brush bar if something jams it - for example, a shoelace or a rug fringe. From what you've described, it sounds like your machine may just need resetting. This is simple to do if you follow the steps shown in our online Support guide:

    You may also find the video below useful. Make sure that before you test the machine, you've reclined it into the vacuuming position, because the brush bar will never rotate when the machine is standing upright.

    I'm confident this will resolve the issue, but if you'd like any further assistance, please give our Helpline a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

    Best wishes,

    How is a Dyson Cinetic Big Ball supposed to get suction when in the rotating brush mode?

    There is a short tube at the bottom and the changeover valve that switches from tools to the floor when you pull the handle back into vacuuming mode. Make sure the valve is switching back and forth smoothly and properly.

    Why does the brush on my dyson 39 not work

    Hi Anne, it's Jack at Dyson.

    If your DC39's brush bar won't rotate, but you're confident your vacuum has strong suction, we'd be keen to take you through some further troubleshooting checks when you have your machine to hand. If we can determine that there's an issue with the Triggerhead floor tool itself, we can confirm if we can replace this for you under the free Dyson parts and labour guarantee.

    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) so we can provide further assistance.

    Our dyson has lost it's suction

    Most likely blockage in the foot. Check for hair etc wrapped on the brush and clogging suction port. Twist 3 plastic 'screws' ati clockwise 1/2 a turn and remove base to access the brushes.
