A problem I have run into a couple of times at home, generally when I am cleaning the bathroom, is that my Dyson brush won't turn. First off I would say be sure to check that you haven't pressed the button that turns the brush on and off, as silly as it may seem it may actually be the case. But if it isn't follow the steps below to clean your brush and get it working right again.
First and foremost always unplug your Dyson before you start any sort of work on it. Next grab a seat on the floor, yeah park your butr on the floor it will be easier because you won't be trying to lift your vacuum up to you. Now take a look at the brush bar to see how much hair and debris is caught in there. If there is very little then you probably don't have much to worry about and you can press the brush reset bar on the side of the vacuums head and your problem with they Dyson brush not turning in fixed. However if you are like me and you find that your cat, dog, and wife's hair are wound pretty tightly around the brush head you will need to take some time to pull in out of there as it is probably what is restricting the motorized brushes movements. Once you are finish you can also press the button on the side of the vacuums head. Now stand the vacuum and yourself back up and go plug it in. I bet that if you cleaned it out your Dyson brush will turn as normal.

I was running my vac when it caught the fringe on a throw. I turned it off and carefully pulled it out but now I don't have any suction and it's not cleaning the carpet.


Don't know the model too well but the beater bar is what goes when that happens(the brush that goes around right there on the intake of the sweeper) it has a belt that makes it turn and you probably broke the belt or burnt it up or it came off so it is the belt that is the problem. That will give you those symptoms because the beater bar (rotating brush) is what lifts the dirt up so it can be sucked in.

The brush stopped revolving. I don't see anything blocking. It sucked up a corner of a rug for a split second but didn't pull anything off of the rug, ie, nothing from the rug is in there. Do these have...


Although I do not share the exact same model that you have, there is a belt in the one I own.
Checking it was pretty easy as the unit comes apart in a simple manner.
I do not know how your unit comes apart but look for screws or screw holes that hold the area in question together and remove.
The belt for my unit is tiny and somewhat hidden near the edge of the unit. The brush was powered by the suction of the vacuum using small paddles that caught the wind. If your unit has this then make sure the belt is still attached and whatever is powering the belt is operating properly.
Good Luck hope this helps.

While using the power mate rug part I caught a small rug and the vacuum would no longer pick-up .


Check to see if there is a reset button on the head. This protects the machine for times like you described. When something jms up the reset button will turn ofdf th machine. Simply push the reset. Hope this helps, Chris

You will need to pull the roller out and clean it. I think some of the strings are tangle up at the end of this roller. (Most rollers will come apart at the end for cleaning.) Make sure that the strings are not tangle up on the belt pulley as well. I hope this will help you.

My Oreck XL has quit sucking. The brush turns but


Same problem here with XL9100. Bag would not expand implying no suction. Motor ran and brushes turned. Easy disassembly using common tools found that a plastic bag had been sucked up and caused a blockage prior to the impeller. Cleaned up, reassembled, and everything worked fine after that.

Belt needs fixed after sucking up a soft rug.


if its a canister model there probably is no belt just suction.open the canister and if it has a bag feel the bag ,if it feels kind of hard then the bag is full.take the tool off the end of the hose and turn it on to see if you have suction if you do then the tool is blocked up.take it to the sink and run some warm water through it and maybe use a little brush to clear out the dirt.full bag will cause your vacuum not to have suction or not as much as it should
