SOURCE: The little fan disc came off the top spleened motor

As long as the blades of the fan are flat (not curved) it doesn't matter. I'd be more concerned that the fan will probably come off again. Unless it's one that's held on by a screw it's just a push-fit and, having come loose once, it will never be a tight fit again. Good luck anyway!

How do i Change the belt


They are all pretty much the same..You should See four or so screws that hold the cover of the vac to the bottom where the beater brush is..once that is removed you will see the motor with a small round shaft and the beater brush that comes out. The belt stretches between the motor shaft and the beater bush pulley.. Once the belt is on make sure the beater brush is in place on both sides and replace the top..you should be good to go..good luck..

The brush head spins slowly


May just be in the connection between the two rollers. I know it looks like one roller, but it is actually two pieces. Remove the silver bottom plate, turn the two large plastic screws on the top ends of the roller assembly, they do not need to be removed, and the two end caps will pop off the roller. you have a short roller and a long one. Where they go together under that black round piece is where you will look, there is a silver shaft sticking out of both sides. then look in the ends of the rollers where they connect to the shaft and look for signs of wear, they are rectangular and sometime they will get rounded out and can not turn. Also at this time you can turn on the vacuum and make sure the motor is turning those shafts. If it is turning fast then those ends of the rollers that fit in there are probably worn or maybe just one of them like mine did. Parts are available from Dyson or maybe Sears etc. You may just want to get a whole new roller if this is the problem. The only other issues may be the motor or the gearing that is under that housing. You will have to remove the other clear plastic piece to access this area. Take care and good luck with it..

The fan broke it is falling apart can that be replace at home or does it need to go to dealer


You can do it at home. You will most likely need a t20 torx bit screwdriver. There are four screws that hold the top on and five that hold the front plate on. There is a small hole on the shaft that sticks out and is easy to stick something in there to help you spin that off. Then pull the washer off, the fan, and there is a gasket and washer behind it. They all come with the fan kit. Good luck.

I have checked the machine for blockages, none found.However, the machines turns off after running for about one minute. Any ideas?


The electric motor inside your Dyson has a built in over-current trip to protect itself (and you if it seriously overheated and caught fire). This normally automatically resets itself, however if the motor has just about had it, next time it is switched on it just trips again.

The primary cause of motors overheating is that the filters are not cleaned or replaced frequently enough. Dont be fooled by Dyson's "lifetime filters". They need to be regularly cleaned and replaced when necessary.

Replacement motors are avaible on eBay for about £25, however repalcing one requires good DIY skills and tools.

Have a look at www.dysonmedic.com and see if you feel you can tackle it yourself. If not, take it to a repair shop or call the Dyson helpline.

Dyson DC04 is making a grinding sound & smells of burning. Hi. I have been told that the above is due to the carbon motor brushes burning out. The brush at the bottom still turns ok. I have bought 2...


Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here, this is not a repair for the faint hearted. First i am assuming you are not using a clutch model - with a selector for carpet/hard floor on the side. If you do have that model i can give you extra instruction. First you will ned a torx driver (like a phillips head but with a star) size 15. Remove the clear bin, the hose that runs up the back of the vacuum and the filter cover and filter. Also remove the inspection tube at back of machine and anything else that pops off easily.
Next turn the dyson dc04 vacuum cleaner upside down and remove the base plate this is done with a large flatblade screwdriver.
The next step is the brush - you should be able to access the drive shaft and pull the belt off which will free the roller.
Unclip the small hose which goes from soleplate to the back of vacuum and remove the soleplate itself you will need to apply very firm pressure and only pull each side out a little way because if you go too far you will crack the guide.
Next is to remove the housing that holds the whole brush assembly. You will see on either side of the vacuum 1 plastic washer (like a circle with a bit taken out) which has to be removed. Once both are off you can gently slip off the body over the shaft that the washers held the body on to. This removes the the body part that moves up and down to adjust your dyson to different height carpets.
Now you should have basically a "nude' dyson
Next step is to remove the 8 torx screws that are spaced around the motor housing. The plastic outer will now come away revealing the last bit of motor casing.
There is a cover plate that is held in by 4 lugs that can be gently pried back with a small screwdriver and the lid will come off like a tupperware container.
From here your on the home straight.
The motor now needs to be pushed out of its little case. The large rubber gasket will make this quite hard as it it designed to hold the motor in but with a fair bit of pressure it will slide out.
With the motor out it should be easy access to the carbon brushes they will simply screw off allowing new ones to be screwed back on.
Reversing the process is as simple (after youve done a few) as reversing the instructions and keep in your mind if you have to apply a lot of force it is likely that something is not lined up properly.
Hope this helps. if you need more tips hit me on the website NelsonVacuums.com.au

Roller brush not spinning?


THIS GEEN LIGHT MEANS THAT THE BELT HAS COME OFF. THE REPLACEMENT IS AS FOLLOWS: FLIP THE BRUSH (RUG RENOVATOR) OVER AND REMOVE THE SCREWS ON THE SILVER GUARD THAT KEEPS THE ROLLER IN PLACE. SLIDE THE ROLLER UP OUT OF THE SLOT, TAKING NOTE ON THE HALF MOON SHAPED SIDE. REMOVE THE OLD BELT(OR WHAT'S LEFT OF IT). PLACE THE BELT AROUND THE MOTOR SHAFT FIRST. THEN AROUND THE WOODEN BARE SPOT ON THE ROLLER. PUT THE ROUND(CIRCULAR) SIDE OF THE ROLLER IN FIRST, THEN CAREFULLY STRETCH THE ROLLER WHILE HOLDING IN THE ROUND SIDE IN ONE SIDE AND ROTATE THE ROLLER UNTILL THE HALF MOON LINES UP TO THE SLOT. PUSH IT DOWN INTO THE SLOT AND PUT THE ROLLER COVER BACK IN PLACE AND RE-INSTALL THE SCREWS. AND THERE YOU HAVE IT. HOPE THIS HELPS. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANK YOU FOR THE HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA.

Need to replace front vacume propeller


You will have to take most of the vacuum apart to replace your fan.
First; remove the handle assembly by pressing the button on the front of it near the base. Remove the bag unit by twisting the rear of the emptor away from the body, and remove the front nozzle assembly by rotating the belt removal part to the "off" position and flipping the latch at the top of the nozzle.

There's a screw on the very back above the self propel select, and one on the top of the plastic where the cord attaches, removal of these will let you remove the rear plastic piece. Then there will be two more screws above the main power switch, and two on the front of the housing under the headlight. Remove the power cord, and then you can lift the rear housing from the main body.
Now you can remove the screws from the front of the fan housing; I believe there are five. Make sure you keep track which screws came from which position, because they are all different sizes.
To remove the front of the fan housing, put a flat-head screwdriver in the gap at the top to the side of the headlight assembly and pry it apart.
To get the motor pulley off you'll want to grip the pulley with a pair of vice grips, and use a wrench to hold on to the motor shaft in the rear of the machine. Look at the shaft that runs to the rear from the armature, and you should be able to locate a flat section which will allow you to grip it with a wrench... I do not recall the exact size, but there is a standard one that fits it perfectly. The pulley can then be removed. Note that it is reverse-threaded. Keep in mind that you will need to replace all the little plastic washers and rubber gaskets and things that are on the shaft with the fan. They are usually included with the Kirby fan kit, but if not make sure you find some before attempting the repair.
Before reassembly, you'll want to apply a thin layer of adhesive around the edge of the fan housing, making sure you don't glue the safety switch on the front into place.

Reassembly is the reverse of disassembly.

Good luck.

First put the gasket on the spacer, thin end to to out, push it down all the way on the motor shaft, then put the nylon washer on, then the fan, metal washer and then the pulley, just snug it, (don't tighten too much just beyond hand tightening). Put the casing, top and handle back on.
