Reset button The drive belt on my machine broke. They sent me a new one and I installed it, I think, correctly. It still won't engage and rotate the brushes. I can't find a reset button, but I suspect it needs to be reset. Where is the button? Theresa

Does it have drive belt


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.
DC24 doesn't use a traditional, replaceable drive belt. The belt is engineered to last the lifetime of the machine, protected my a mechanism which shuts off the brush bar if something jams it.
If your brush bar is not rotating, it's likely your machine will just need resetting. Please follow the steps shown in the video attached to do this. We'd recommend using something like the eraser-end of a pencil to press the reset button - you should feel a 'click' when pressed correctly. Please ensure that the machine is reclined into the vacuuming position before you test it, as the brush bar will never rotate when it's standing upright.
I'm confident this will get your machine up and running again. For any additional advice after you've tried this, please get in touch with us directly so we can confirm if we can help under the terms of the machine's 5-year guarantee. You can reach us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).
Best wishes,

Belt replace panasonic vac


Is it an upright? On mine it's very simple.
Unplug vacuum and lay it on floor so that you are looking at the rotating brush. Remove screws that attach the cowling. Remove the cowling. You will then see the rotating brush ends. One end will have the belt, or what's left of on the brush wheel. You will also see the motor shaft. The belt goes between the shaft and the brush wheel. Carefully remove the brush by holding both ends and pulling straight out. Place the new belt on the brush wheel and replace the brush. With the belt on the brush wheel, stretch it to fit on the motor shaft. Rotate the brush to make sure the belt is riding correctly at both ends. Replace cowling and screws.

Brush roller not spinning. belt, spindle okay. roller taken out and cleaned, no thread. replaced but no dice. ???


Use only BISSELL Style 10 Replacement Belts (#32074) in your BISSELL PowerForce Bagless.
  1. Unplug cleaner from electrical outlet.
  2. With Rotating Floor Brush removed from vacuum cleaner, grasp old Drive Belt and remove from Motor Pulley. Discard old Drive Belt.
  3. Place new Drive Belt over Motor Pulley and stretch other end over Rotating Floor Brush in the space between the bristles.
  4. Place ends of Rotating Floor Brush down into slots on sides as shown.
  5. Turn Rotating Floor Brush by hand several times in the direction of Motor Pulley. If properly installed, Drive Belt will center itself on Rotating Brush.
  6. Reposition Brush Cover and snap back into place. Check to be sure all three latches are secured.
  7. When you turn on the vacuum, do you see the motor that spins the belt spinning at the bottom? If not, it sounds like you may have a burned out motor.

Need to replace belt and cannot figure how to take it apart to get at the belt --- Took Screws off on the bottom but could not get to the belt


You have already removed the screws so lift the brush cover off. Then grasp rotating floor brush at both ends and lift. Clean strings,hair and other debris from rotating brush, paying close attention to the brush ends. Clean the debris from motor pulley and drive belt areas.Grasp old drive belt and remove from motor pulley. Place new drive belt over motor pulley and stretch other end over rotating floor brush in the space between the bristles. Place the ends of the rotating floor brush down into slots on the sides. Turn the rotating floor brush by hand several times in the direction of motor pulley. If installed properly, drive belt will center itself on rotating brush. Reposition brush cover and screw back into place. I hope that this helps you!

Is there a manual for installing new drive belts on my LG Kompressor - we've had it for less than a month and the belt broke. I ordered 2 replacement belts and the new one doesn't work and the brush won't...


You've probably figured this out, but my luv200R had the same problem. The belt broke, I changed it and it still didn't spin the brushes. Turned out, the roller has bearings on either end and one of the bearings was bad and wasn't letting roller roll. So the pulley would spin against the belt and heat up and break it again. I took the bad roller to Sears where they had a new one sent to my house free of charge since it was less than a year old.

Hi, The belt of our Dirt devil bagless vaccum broke and we got new belt and replaced it. Even after replacing the belt, the brush is not rotating. Any suggestions please ?


Did you check to see that the beater brush, the brush that the belt drives, is free of debris and moves freely? When they bind up they can cause the belt to break. Remove the beater brush just as you do when changing the belt and clean as best you can. There are retainer clips at each end of the brush, add some WD40 between the clips and the beater brush and turn by hand to free it up. Reassemble making sure the belt is on in the proper manner so that the brush will turn in the correct direction. If you find this solution helpful, I would appreciate a Thumbs Up from you!
Thank you. Paul

Roller not turning


If the motor runs when you switch on, but the brush roll doesn't revolve, then there may be a broken belt. I wonder how old your vac is? Sebo belts are very high quality and they usually last 10 years at least.
Before you go to the trouble of checking the belts, check the brush roll and its drive shaft. Remove the brush roll and check for signs of damage at the end where it engages the drive shaft. Also see if you can easily rotate the drive shaft - if you can, there's a belt broken. To confirm, lie the machine down so you can see the drive shaft, then switch on (keep fingers clear!) and look to see if the shaft is rotating. If you can't turn the shaft by hand and it does rotate when you switch on, then the belts are OK but the brush roll may not be locating properly and you probably need a new one.

To check the belts you need to get the cover off the base, as follows: separate the base from the bag compartment by pressing the button at front bottom of bag compartment then just pull the two apart (a gentle lever may help). Then turn the base over and undo ONLY the four deeply recessed screws (you will need a cross-head screwdriver). Turn the base right-way up again and lift off the cover. You will then see the belts.
If you find the belts are both good, or if you find one broken and need further help, post a reply here, tell me what you've found, and I'll guide you through the next steps.
Good luck!
