The belt is rubbing the foot plate.Check to see if the foot plate is damaged.Allso check the bearings in the brush bar are free and spin without the belt on.If you cant spin the brush bar by hand with the belt not attached then your bearings are seized.Get a new brush bar

Dyson DC25 brush won't spin when touching the floor. If I lift it off the floor it spins, once it touches the floor it stops. Any idea what the problem is?


I can think of three things that could be wrong.

The easiest one is that the brush has hair and fluff wrapped around its bearing. This happened to me and was causing a burning rubber smell. Turn it over and remove the base plate. Lift the belt by putting a piece of cord under it and slide the brush out. Remove one end of the brush and slide the spindle out. Clean all the hair out and reassemble.

The internal drive belt is worn, or the nylon bush that it runs on.

The clutch is worn out.

The last two are not as easy to fix as the main drive belt is enclosed in the centre of the clutch. There are videos though that show you the process. Have a read and a watch, but try my first tip first.

    Tip

    Vacuum Brush Bar Not Spinning


    " My vacuum brush is not spinning". OR
    " My vacuum brush is spinning but not picking up".
    " My dirt sensor doesn't work, continually blinks".

    These three things are very common in vacuum cleaners and they are nothing serious. There is a rubber belt that drives the Brush Bar.You simply need to replace the belt.

    * If the Brush Bar is not spinning, then you know that the belt is broken.
    * If the Brush Bar is spinning but not picking up anything, then the belt is stretched to the point where it is now spinning on the Brush Bar. When this is the case, you may smell the belt burning and you may even see a little smoke.
    * And, if the you have a dirt sensor on you vacuum and it continually blinks, this is due to a bad belt as well.

    Whatever the case, the belt must be replaced. Belts are very easy to replace. In most vacuums, you turn the vacuum over and pop off the bottom to access the belt. In some other vacuums, there will be a little door/cover that pops off on the top side of the vacuum; allowing access that way.

    You can pick a belt up at your large department stores or Do-It-Yourself Centers. These stores usually only carry specific brands, depending on each store you search. You may want to call around first. The belts are very reasonably priced for the most part.

    Or, if you would rather shop on line, here is a link to belts. Just look up the Make and Model # of your vacuum and order.

    Good Luck!

    I have a bissell powerforce bagless.that is melting belts. i've cleaned the brush bar and put a new belt on only to have the new one melted again. i don't know what could possibly be wrong with it.


    Make sure all the pulleys the belt attaches to are spinning properly, if one is stuck or not spinning fast enough that will easily generate enough friction to melt the belt each time you replace it. Might need to replace other parts, or clean out more than just the brushes.

    The little belt inside the head of the vaccum with the beater bar is not always spinning therefor is melting. Is it normal for the metal pin that it is going around on to get really hot?


    The Belt should be changed at this point. This will allow for the proper tension to be on the brush between the motor assembly (metal pin) and the brush so that it spins at the proper speed.

    Is it "normal" for the metal pin (motor shaft) to get hot.... not normal, however in the problem you have described, yes it is normal for this situation.

    Change the belt and your problem should go away.

    The drive belt doesn't turn.


    The drive belt may have just melted a notch into the rubber on the motor piston.
    With the cover off, are you able to move the brushes by hand? When the brush bar turns, does the drive belt move too? If so, move it for a full rotation of the belt (make a mark with a Sharpie and move it until you see your mark again)

    If there's a melted notch or "Dent" in the belt, you'll need to replace it

    My machine ran over some string,made a funny noise and emitted some smoke,the hand suction pipe at the rear works perfectly, the motor runs fine,but the front of the vacuum will not work.thankyou very...


    the string bound up the beater bar (brush), keeps the belt stationary, and the motor spindle is just rubbing against the belt and melting it. remove the belt guard, remove the brush, and the belt. clean off the brush bearings (at the ends of the brush) of the string and make sure the ends spin freely from the brush. replace the belt with a new one, and put it all back together.

    Vacuum belts smokes and needs to be replaced 3x's in 6 months is tis normal or did I get a lemon


    brush roller berings may be faulty making the brush stick and motor shaft spins against belt causing melting. remove brush roller, clean out end berings and see if ends spin freely or if they stick. if they stick, you might need to replace brush roller.
