Dc7 animal roller won't spin

Not sure if it's a DC28 or DC07. If you are having trouble with the brush roll on your DC28 take it to a Dyson service center. If it is a DC07 check for obstructions in the brush roll. If none there check the belt or the clutch assembly depending on if you have a clutch or not on your model.

How much does it cost to have dyson animal service

HI there I am a technition in Australia and I charge $88 for a service on a dyson DC07. Basically for that I strip the machine right down, clean the airways, service the motor and the clutch. I check the brush roller bearings and disassemle the radix unit and clear it out. I also change filters and belts where necessary. After about 5 years the bearings in the brush roller are worn too so I generally change those too.
Hope this helps.

I bought a dyson DC14 hepa with no brush bar can i use it on wooden floors

Hi there,
Actually yes you can. The hard floor setting is the same as the carpet setting only it doesn't spin the brush roller. Running the vacuum without the roller will have roughly the same effect.
If you want to buy and install a roller I have made a video to show you how to fit one in your DC07.
Click here to go to my DC07 webpage. There is a link on that page called

How do I check the clutch or brush roller of my Dyson DC07?. (video)

that is the one to choose to see how you could install a new roller.

If you want to purchase a roller online check out vacuumspot or Nelson Vacuums.

Finally if this was a helpful answer please take a moment to give it a rating (a really good one pls)

My dyson dc animal was given to me but the rollers wont rotate

Hi there, there are only a couple of things that make the roller not work.
1. Something is wound around the brush and it is jammed
2. The brush roller bearings (in the brush ends) are full of **** or siezed
3. One of your belts is worn or broken.
4. The clutch is faulty.
I have made a video showing how to pull apart the dc07 at this area. If you watch the video there is good tips that will help fix your vacuum.
If you need parts then have a look at Nelson Vacuums or VacuumSpot

If this is a helpful guide please take just a moment to leave me a review, thumbs up or testimonial.

Happy Vacuuming :)

Vacuum brushes won't turn. It still has suction.

That means that you need to replace the belt that turns the roller brush. They naturally stretch and wear and you should replace this belt yearly. Here is the belt you need and the manual which has instructions on how to change it:

Is there something on the shaft that will not allow the belt to turn? Our vacuum the roller will not turn.

It could just be the belt. If the belt is worn or stretched It will not turn the roller 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:

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.
