It died and won't switch on again, the roller had carpet threads around it, can it have burnt out? The plug fuse is ok, there wouldn't be an internal one would there?

The User Guide for the DC07 can be found here:

http://media.dyson.com/downloads/caen/floorcare/Manuals/dc07_opmanual_caen.pdf

Your machine is fitted with a belt protection system. If any item becomes caught in the brushbar (e.g. rug fringe), you will hear a loud 'ratchet' warning noise indicating an obstruction.

To rectify, turn the machine off, disconnect from the electrical outlet and clear any obstruction. Lay the machine on its front.

Undo the colored soleplate fasteners using a coin and remove the soleplate.

Clear the brushbar obstruction, carefully cutting away any threads with a pair of scissors. Replace the soleplate and tighten.

Press the brushbar reset button on the back of the cleaner head. See here for illustration:

Should any part of the machine become blocked, the motor may also overheat and stop due to the thermal cut-off being triggered. Disconnect from electrical outlet and let the machine cool down for at least 30 minutes before clearing the blockage. You may need to check for blockages in other parts of the machine.

Why doesn't brush roller rotate?


The ends may be clogged with debris. You will have to remove the brush roller and remove one end cap to disassemble the roller for cleaning.

Check the belt and the end bearings are free by hand, (electric off plug out) if not free remove plate to access roller/brush, remove clear any obstruction (Hair/string/thread) replace and test. ensure you site belt back on to spindle and roller/brush correctly.

Burnt rubber smell when vacuuming


This could be a few things:

A. If your model has a floor selector switch (Bare floor/tools - Carpet) your clutch could be worn. (there is a rubber clutch pad between your cam and roller shell) - Fix would be to replace the clutch pad and belt.

B. If you don't have one of the above models, your belt could be stretched. The belt slipping could cause a rubber burning smell. Fix - Change belt.

C. Have you got any new carpet you are vacuuming or have you moved? Some of the newer style frieze carpets can cause burning rubber smell. The fibers of the carpet are longer and cause the brush to slow down causing the belt to burn. (Imagine brushing long hair with a thick brush, the hair easily gets tangled in the brush, same effect with this carpet.) Some of the newer rugs can do this as well. Some newer carpets with the thicker felt backing and/or the "pet padding" under the carpet can too. it doesn't allow enough air to flow through causing the cleaner head to seal itself to the carpet causing a burning smell. The fix is Move to another home, replace your carpets or replace your vacuum. The vacuum is the cheaper option but be cautious as most vacuums now do this with these carpets. We have had really good response from customers using the Simplicity Tandem Air models, (Synchrony and Synergy models.)

Hope this helps, if you need to talk further feel free to contact me.

Carpet brush not rotating


Did you check the drive belt for the roller? If not do so, the smell was the belt drive burning up.

The brush roller is not rotating on my Kenmore Whispertone. It will pick up on floor surfaces. Help!


Be sure that there are no fibers wound around the roller or lodged in the wheel well of the brush roller. That is usually the cause of a brush roller not rotating. You might need to use scissors to clip the fibers and then pull them from the roller. The fibers might range from human and pet hair to carpet fibers, threads, string, yarn, embroidery floss. They wind around the roller and eventually "tighten up" so that the rotator will not move. I have found that, depending on my current craft project, I may have quilting thread, knitting yarn, embroidery floss, or other such goodies wrapped around the roller. When our daughters were at home we would have long, beautiful blonde hair tangled in the roller. I hope this helps.

Carpet roller will not turn. Vacuum still sucks up dirt


You may need to replace the belt that drives the roller head. They wear out and break, or maybe it has just come loose. Also check for string and thread wound around the roller wheel axles, that is a common "culprit"

Eureka 4870: Brush roller turns even in hose setting.


You either have the wrong size belt, most likely too small, or you have installed a new belt incorrectly. When you open the cover on the bottom of your vac, you will see the pulley that moves as you flip the switch from floors to carpet. The belt does not go around this pulley. When activated(carpet) the pulley puts tension on the belt causing it to turn the roller. When switched back to hard floors, the belt looses tension allowing motor to cause suction but disabling roller. Also, the dial on top of vac is only to direct suction, not for disabling roller

Hi, I was using, and it stopped suddenly. what does it mean? Burnt out?


no not really if something is keeping the brush rolle from turning then the motor guard will keep it fron running .check if the brush roller can be turned by hand and freely if its real hard to turn then the roller bearings are bad or there are carpet strands tide up around the ends of the roller keeping it from turning correctly.feel free to call me if you need help.i don't charge i just like helping people and saving them money in these rough times.314-628-9153
