DC07s have two drive belts that turn the brush bar - one connects the output of the motor to the clutch, the other connects the clutch to the brush bar.
You can check the latter simply by removing the sole plate and looking. Unfortunately the other belt is hidden under a plastic cover, so you cant see if it is okay or not without some dismantling. This cover is not easy to remove and requires a Torx driver to under the securing screws.
If, after removing the cover, the other belt is okay, then you have a faulty clutch. New clutches are available on eBay reasonably cheaply, but again good tools and DIY skills are required.
Have a look atwww.dysonmedic.com which has some excellent info on dismantling and repairing a DC 07, but unless you have access to such tools, and feel confident to tackle it, it's probably time to callDyson or a Vacuum repairer.

How to change belt in dyson upright model dc07


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

There are two versions of DC07 - some include a brush bar which rotates all the time when the vacuum is running. And some include a brush control clutch mechanism which allows you to turn off the brush bar for hard floor cleaning. If your machine has the brush control, you'll see the dial on the front of the cleaner head.

If you have a DC07 without the brush control feature, you can replace the belt as shown in our online Support guide: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc07/dc07-standard/maintaining-your-dyson-machine/change-the-belt1/belt-fitting-preparation

However, if you have a DC07 with the brush control feature, the clutch mechanism uses belts engineered to last the lifetime of the machine in normal use. These are not designed to be replaced by the user, and we would advise against attempting to change these as damage may be caused to your machine.

For further advice on having your machine repaired, or to order replacement belts for a DC07 without brush control, please contact our experts directly. You can reach us by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Where is the brush belt on a dyson 07 upright vacuum?


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

The type of belt mechanism will depend on which model of DC07 you own. If you have a DC07 machine without the brush control feature, the user-replaceable belt is located within the cleaner head:
http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc07/dc07-standard/maintaining-your-dyson-machine/change-the-belt1/belt-fitting-preparation

However, if your DC07 includes the brush control feature (you should see the Carpet/Hard floor dial on the cleaner head), your machine will use a clutch mechanism with belts engineered to last for the lifetime of the machine in normal use.

If you have a DC07 with brush control and would like some help with it, please contact us directly by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

DC07 brush does not turn - belt intact


Hi there, The problem is likely to be
a) The selector on the front of your machine is set to hard floors
b) The bearings in your brush roller are jammed
c) the clutch to motor belt (this vacuum has 2 belts) is broken.
I have made a youtube video of how to check the clutch and brush.
If you need parts or filters you an go to vacuumspot.com.au or nelsonvacuums.com.au
Hope this helps :)
oh also if this is helpful please take the time to write a review or give me a thumbs up

Help, the brushbar on my Dyson DC07 vacuum quit rotating. Belt seems to be ok. How do I fix this?


The belt may seem okay and intact but it can be stretched. If it is stretched then it will not turn the brush when it is on the carpet. Here is the belt you need:

Beater brush does not work. Brush is clean and belt is not broke. Dyson 07 animal vaccum


Even though the belt may not be broken it might be stretched and if that is the case it will not turn the brush. You can get replacement belts here:

Hi my dyson dc07 animal has suction but the brush bar wont turn. If I turn it on there is a horrible noise. The belt is still fine


The belt is probably worn or stretched. When this happens the belt won't turn the roller brush when it is against the carpet. Here is a link for the manual and links for the belt you need:

The brushes move freely by hand but wont spin


It could be the clutch that causing your problems. What you should do is take it to a repair shop and have it looked at and see if that's the problem.

The vacuum suction still works but the brush wont turn. It still looks like the belt is intact and attached properly.


The problem with Dysons is that the belt breaks and sits in position.
If you can turn the brush by hand, with little or no resistance then I would say the belts broken.
If in doubt take the cover off and look.
