Question about Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
I loaned my Dyson to a friend with hardwood floors. They switched the brush off. I got the vacuum back and switched it back on. They will not turn. There was a clicking/grinding noise --- and some foul smell like something was burning. The belt is not broken and the brush will turn easily enough by hand - but the vacuum will not engage the brush anymore. It is useless to me as I have carpeted floors. Can anyone help?
Your Dyson has A clutch unit this engages the brush roller when you pull the handle back to vacuum.
Check the clutch control knob which is at the bottom left side of machine looking from the front.
It should rotate to drive position when handle is pulled back.
If it doesnt turn the knob by hand to drive & try the machine.
If you still have no brush rotation after doing all this then UNPLUG machine from mains supply.
Now lay machine on its side & remove the sole plate, This is the cover over the brush roller.
Turn the 3 plastic screws to unlock postition & lift sole plate off.
Now try to yurn brush roller using your hand. It should turn freely if it is difficult to turn look for any foriegn object obstructing the roller.
If no obstruction found then remove the brush roller from the machine & check the bearings in the ends of the brush roller one or both may be siezed up if they are then new brush roller will solve the problem.
If bearings are good then either the clutch is faulty or the second belt which goes clutch to motor has snapped & will need replacing.
It is difficult to fully explain the clutch removing procedure,
