I don't believe the Dyson has a reset button. if the brush doesn't turn when the handle is down then you may have a broken belt. there are 2 belts on the vacuum, the one from motor to clutch can be replaced from under the vac. the belt from brush roll to clutch is not available and must be replaced as a clutch ***'y.

How do I fix the brush bar reset button on Dyson DC24?


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

The reset button will not remain depressed after it's been pushed. Instead, you should hear and feel a click when pressed - it can help to use something like the eraser-end of a pencil. The steps are shown in our video guide below:

If you've been unable to reset the cleaner head after pressing the reset button as shown, or if you're worried the reset button isn't working correctly, please get in touch as we should be able to help you further.

You can reach the Dyson Customer Helpline directly by calling us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU). Please have your DC24 to hand when you call so we can take you through some troubleshooting checks.

Is there a reset button on my dyson vacuum, if so where is it?


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC41 doesn't include a separate reset switch, as the reset mechanism is built into the on/off and brush control switches for convenience. If your brush bar isn't rotating, please follow the steps shown in the video below to reset the vacuum after removing any obstructions:

Please note, the brush bar will never rotate when the vacuum is standing upright - make sure you recline the machine into the normal vacuuming position before testing it.

If you'd like further help or advice after giving this a try, please give our experts a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Why


Hi! There are a few reasons why your brushes may not be spinning. Try these simple steps below.

1. Your brush roll may be clogged. Unplug the cleaner and remove any debris from brush roll.
2. Make sure the brush roll setting is turned on. The brush roll on/off switch is located on the handle of the hose.
3. Reset the brushes. The brush roll reset button is located on the back of the nozzle on the right side.

Hope this helps! If you still have questions feel free to reach out to us here on Fixya, Facebook.com/dirtdevil or Twitter @DirtDevil.

Dyson brush wont turn


Hi There is a reset switch on your Dyson that needs to be pressed when something gets stuck in the brushes. The reset switch helps protect the motor that spins the brush from damaging if something gets stuck inside the brushes. There is a little red pole that sits up behind the brushes on the vacuum head, I believe it's on the left side of the floor head as if you were behind the machine vacuuming. Try pushing this reset switch first.

No reset button for brushes


Hi there,

To locate the reset button on your DC24, please check the left-hand side of the cleaner head when the machine is facing you. It's set within a red recess - the video below may help.

If you're sure there is no reset button on the cleaner head, you may have a different Dyson upright. Please visit www.dyson.com and click 'Support' to identify your machine from the list. Our online Support guides should then be useful in resolving your issue.

Alternatively, we'll be happy to confirm which machine you own, and run you through the correct reset process, if you give our Helpline a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US). Please have the machine to hand when you call.

Best wishes,

Jack

My dyson dc17 turn on but doesn't turn


Hi there,
I am sorry to hear you are having difficulty with your DC17. If the brush bar is not spinning it may be obstructed.
Please visit http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=956&product=DC17-ANIMAL for step by step instructions on how to inspect your brush bar and clear any obstructions that may be present.
Once you have carried out these steps you may need to reset your brush bar. To do this please plug your machine in, recline it as if you are preparing to vacuum a carpeted surface, turn your machine on and if the brush bar is not spinning push the silver button next to your power button one time. This should reset the brush and it should begin spinning immediately.
If you are still having difficulty with your machine please contact the Dyson US Helpline at 1-866-693-9766 or the Dyson UK Helpline at 0800 298 0298 so we can provide further assistance.
Best wishes,
Jessica

I caught a shoestring in the brush and now it won't turn. I pressed the "overload protector reset" button but it's just loose and seems to have no effect.


Hi. I think it may still need resetting. Keep pushing reset. If this does not help remove the brush the turn it on. It should start. If so, there still may be somethng in the brush bearing that is stopping it from turning. It could also be that the belt broke when you got the lace. Let me know please, hope this helps. Chris

I have a kenmore progressive vacuum with a belt reset button that trips out everytime you try to vacuum. It does it in about 5 to 10 seconds. Can I bypass the reset button or can you help me determine...


A lot of times the reset button is tripping because there is a problem. The problem could be with the brush roller in this case. A lot of times I see this unit for repair and the end of the brush is so compacted with hair and debris that it has also started to melt. This will also "fool" the reset and trip off. If you are near a service depot try there, or try sears parts if you need to have the brush roller replaced.

Bypassing the reset button is not advisable on any machine.
