Roller brush working but can't push cleaner forward on carpet. Front digs into carpet


Had the very same problem when I installed new carpet in my home. It was essentially "unpushable". Called Dyson and they said to remove all gaskets from the cleaning head. I was skeptical, but it worked.

Why does my Dyson Dc-39 vacuum have good suction, but the beater bar barley turns?


The beater bar may be clogged with pet hair and other debris. You may have to do some disassembly to get everything working again.

The beater bar on my dyson dc 28 animal sweeper is not engaging at all what could the problem be with this


Hi Judi,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your DC28. You haven't mentioned in your question whether your machine is displaying any indicator lights - these are designed to help you diagnose what the issue might be.

Generally, if the brush bar won't rotate, it may be because the brush bar is set too low for the type of carpet pile you're cleaning. Try raising it to the next available level to see if this helps. It's also important to keep the brush bar clear of any threads or hair, and to check the cleaner head is free of anything that could jam the brush bar - the video I've attached shows the correct way to do this.

Finally, the brush bar will never rotate when the machine is standing upright, or if you have the height selector set to 'Bare floors'. Make sure you have the machine reclined into the vacuuming position, and set to an appropriate carpet height setting once you've turned the vacuum on.

I hope this helps - if you find you're unable to reset the machine using the information I've provided here, please email your contact details and serial number to us at askdysonUS@dyson.com. One of our experts will be in touch as soon as possible to take you through some further diagnostic checks. If a repair is needed, we'll be happy to confirm whether this is covered under the machine's 5-year warrranty.

Best wishes,

Jack

My Dyson - DC14 won't push on my new plush carpet, front end


Same issue: new plush carpet, 7 year old tried and true DC14, wouldn't push across regardless of beater brush on or off. Called Dyson this morning, they suggested removing the small gasket between the floor plate and the assembly holding the beater brush. It's about a 12' gasket just under the screws used to remove the floor plate. Pushing is still a bit stiff, but it is a definite improvement. Whew!

The brush will only spin when the machine is reclined. Not when the machine is stood upright.
If the brush doesn't turn when the machine is reclined, and the brush control set to "auto", you have a brush bar and/or belt problem.

MY WIFE BOUGHT THIS FOR ME FOR FATHERS DAY GIFT ABOUT ALMOST 2 YEARS NOW OR SO,BUT I HAVE THIS PROBLEM THAT THE BRUSH DOS'NT SPIN ANYMORE EVERYTIME I PUT THE SWITCH ON FOR BRUSH ON,THE HOSES BRUSH SPIN IS...


This unit uses a turbine assy to turn the brushes. The brushes could have something jamming them. Remove the brush unit, it is held on 2 spring hooks 1 on each side. The brush unit is driven thru a 1/4" square post, only one brush is driven and it drives the next then it drives the next etc. If something is jammed in these gears it will stop the entire brush assy. The turbine assy could be bad, but I would check the brush assy first.

The brushes wont turn,but it has good suction for the hose


you have to remove the bottom cover to inspect the belt. Usually if the brush is jammed, you will smell an odor similar to burning rubber. In the absence of that smell, its likely the belt. Its easy to replace

My hoover carpet scrubber the brushes won


(1) Remove the brush block and assure the presence of the square drive pin on top of one brush. It should be about 1/4 inch square, two inches long to connect o the drive mechanism.

(2) Remove and clean the filter screen from the base, behind the brushes. Squeeze the two red tabs together, and pull down from the base. Clean the hiar/debris from the screen.

(3) Assure the Brush Speed knob on the hood is NOT set to the OFF position.
