    My brush is not spinning. Tried to trouble shoot with dyson on the phone. They told me to take vacuume in to a dyson dealer for repair. The belt that I can see is not broke.

    Spins on the Carpet, but not on hard floor,,,,,,,barely picks up, like coffee grounds. By the way, I bought my Dyson DC07 from HSN and have had only 2 weeks, so what's up with 500 dollars and it breaks down!!!!

The brushbar isn't supposed to spin when it on bare floor. It's to prevent dirt flying around. It only spins when it's switched to carpet.
 I was just having issues with there being not much suction when it was on the floor mode. I flipped it over and noticed the small clear hose was not attached well. The Dyson is pretty user friendly, so i just popped it back in and used a butter knife to carefully push the ribbing over the plastic notches.
I've had my Dyson for almost a year. We LOVE it! I hope it keeps up!

Hi

The second belt is fitted to the clutch it goes from the motor to clutch.

Not sure how you checked clutch but didnt see 2 belts.

You will need to strip machine down removing brush roller & brush roll housing then you can get at the clutch.

A burning smell when in use


Martinsivyer:

Turn the machine upside-down and see if you can turn the beater/brush bar with your hand. You should see the brush turning and feel the resistance from the motor. The brush/beater bar may be binding, and what you are smelling is the motor shaft spinning against the rubber belt. You can remove the base plate and check the brush/beater bar with the belt disconnected. If the brush/beater bar is difficult to turn, you need to remove the brush/beater bar and clean the bearings at each end, Remove any threads that are wound around the beater bar ends so that the bearings roll easily and smoothly. Check to see that your machine is not set too low for the surface that you are bacuuming. While you have the belt disconnected, check thi inside surface to see if the motor shaft has been spinning against the belt, you'll see the damage to the inside circumfrence of the belt.

How can I tell if I need to replace the beater bar? I replaced the belt but now it seems too tight and the bar doesn't want to spin.


The belt is supposed to be tight, but the beater bar bearings are probably full of string, hair, and thread. Remove the bar, remove, clean, and oil the bearings (3-1 or similar). Leave the belt off for a moment, and install just the bar. Spin it with your fingers--it should revolve freely--if not, redo the clean/lube process again making sure to clean the inside of the bearings with a Q-tip swab. Once the bar spins freely, remove it to slide on the belt and reinstall. Hope this helps!

The beater bar does not turn. The belt is fine.


The "switch" that turns the beater bar on and off is called the clutch. It doesn't often fail, and for you to have two fail would be exceptional bad luck - so this may not be the problem. You are aware, of course, that the beater bar is always off when the machine is upright. The clutch automatically switches to "on" when the handle is lowered (unless the clutch knob is in the permanent off position). Sorry if this is stating the obvious, but we get lots of Dysons in for repair where the only problem is the clutch knob is in the wrong position. You say the belt is fine - but there are two belts. One goes from motor to clutch, the other from clutch to beater bar. The motor-to-clutch belt is replaceable (but you can't even see it without removing the clutch cover), while the other belt is integral with the clutch unit and the whole thing must be replaced. The trouble is... even to replace the motor-to-clutch belt you have to remove the clutch from the machine and that's quite an involved job. If you're considering doing the job yourself, look at www.dysonmedic.com, scroll to the bottom of the page and look at DC07 clutch replacement, and that will give you an idea of what's involved. Good luck!

Check out this YouTube Video:

http://www.ezvacuum.com/dyson-dc07dc14-clutch-assembly-90025204-genuine-p-1636.html

After reading a ton of forums I thought I needed to replace the clutch assembly. My Dyson was making a horrible noise when in "carpet" mode. Got a new clutch on eBay for a great price. Somewhat hard to replace, but thanks to the YouTube video, I was able to get it in.

HOWEVER this did not resolve the issue. I realized the beater bar was not spinning or was slipping. I thought I cleaned it all out but realized you need to take the beater bar out and pop the end cap out and clean the INSIDE of the beater bar. I additionally sprayed WD40 in there.

It spins great now and in the end I think that's all I had to do was clean out the cat hair build up inside the beater bar. But now I have a new clutch & belts too. Hopefully won't have issues anytime soon.

HOW TO CHANGE DRIVE BELT NO SUCTION FROM UNDERNEATH


the drive belt only controls the beater bar if the bar is spinning the belt is fine.
the no suction problem is probably caused by an obstruction in the line , the most common place that this occurs is where the handle pivots from the power head, if the tool hose can not be pulled at this location, remove the cover for the beater bar and you should be able to reach obstruction from there

WHEN I TURN MY VACUME ON IT SOUNDS FINE, WHEN UPRIGHT. WHEN I GO TO MOVE IT TO HOOVER IT MAKES A SCREAMING NOISE. CAN U TELL ME WHAT IS WRONG PLEASE AND HOW TO FIX. THANK YOU


When the vaccum is upright, the beater bar is not engaged. When you tilt the handle back, the clutch engages and the beater bar begins to turn.

There are two likely possibilities for the "screaming noise". First, and most likely, is that the beater bar cannot turn because of a build up of debris or the beater bar is broken. In eaither case, the clutch belt is spinning on the non-moving beater bar causing the noise. Remove the beater bar, inspect for hair, carpet fibers or other items wrapped around the bar. Also inspect for cracks in the plasitc at the ends of the bar. Clean or replace the bar as needed.

The second possible cause is the clutch assembly. If you were unable to fix the problem with the first solution, it is time to take the vacuum in for service as replacing the clutch is somewhat difficult.

Here is a YouTube video link that will walk you through the process of removing the beater bar as well as the clutch if you decide to go it on your own: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7_CtaFcc5HU

Hope this helps.

I ran over a shoe lace and now it is making a loud rattling noise


The All Floors model has a protective belt clutch system and the rattling sound means the clutch has slipped. This would have to be repaired officially by a Dyson repairer.
