    Terese,
    From what I could find, it seems this part has been discontinues. But, if you have your part number from the belt, I have a website that lists what roller will go with what belt. Here's the site:http://search.store.yahoo.net/yhst-19937...

    Wish you success,

    If you find one there, could you please give me a vote, thanks,

HOW TO REPAIR THE RECOIL POWER CORD ON A KENMORE MOD 116.23613300 VACUUM


generally you need to replace the spring mechanism. contact the manufacture for parts/cost. Most local shops don't carry parts to repair vacuums, unless it's a new model, most vacuums are designed to work until they don't then you replace. unless you spend more than 400-500 bucks on it that is.

Loud whining when the dyson goes on and off


Dyson vacuum cleaner - Strange noise troubleshooting.
WHISTLING NOISE
If you are getting strange noises from your Dyson vacuum cleaner, listen very carefully as each one is telling you something different. Look through the list and see if you can spot your strange noise.
If you are getting a whistling noise, that usually indicates an air leak (vacuum leak) of some kind.
If you also have a loss of suction, make sure you check for blockages, torn seals, or parts not fitted correctly such as u-bends etc.
A seal may also be missing so go through our poor suction troubleshooting and see if you can spot where the suction dies.
If you try all of that with no luck and have a machine that has a HEPA filter like the DC07 or DC14 especially, then remove the HEPA filter and check the circular seal underneath the HEPA filter. If this has moved even slightly this may be causing the whistling, try removing the seal and putting the filter back in.
The DC24 and DC25 ball models are known for this, you turn the machine off and it gives off a strange revving/flapping noise. To diagnose this properly then remove the HEPA filter (the one in the ball) turn it back on and off again. If the noise has gone then replace the HEPA filter with a new one. Go to our parts store to order one


POPPING NOISE

A popping noise accompanied by a really pungent burning smell 99% of the time indicates a motor failure with your Dyson vacuum cleaner.
This will involve a motor and usually a post motor filter replacement as it usually burns the post filter or at best traps that lovely smell in the filter for eternity.
Sometimes a popping noise is a bit simpler.
All Dyson vacuum cleaners are fitted with something called a bleed valve, if the Dyson becomes blocked the bleed valve opens allowing air to get to the motor so it doesn't get too hot and fail.
The bleed valve on most models makes a popping noise, clear the blockage and/or wash your filter and that should solve it.
Go to our suction problems page to troubleshoot it.

RATCHET NOISE

If you hear the dreaded ratcheting noise it'll scare your kids and pets and make you switch it off immediately. It sounds like a football rattle but worse.
The ratcheting noise only happens on Dyson vacuum cleaners with a clutch.
Don't know the difference?
Look at the two models below, the one to the left does not have a clutch the one to the right does.
Still don't see it? Look at the bottom left of each machine, the purple ones have a purple dial meaning it has a clutch (could be any colour dial) the yellow one doesn't.

Anyway, back to the ratchet noise. This usually only happens when something is obstructing the brushbar, it stops the brushbar to prevent the belt from breaking (clutch belts cannot be replaced by the customer) and makes the ratchet noise to warn you.

Removing the obstruction, like a sock or paperclip from the brushbar will usually get it working again.
If you remove the obstruction and it still ratchets, then unplug your Dyson and try turning the brushbar by hand. It should be quite loose, if not remove the brushbar by grabbing it and twisting and pulling until it comes out.

When you get it out try turning it if it is still tight then remove the end caps and check for dust or hair build up in the ends and also remove any hair built up around the brushbar. Spray some WD40 in the ends if necessary, put the end caps back on the brushbar and try again. If it is still tight to turn then I recommend a new brushbar.
If the brushbar is spinning freely by hand then the odds are it will require a new clutch. We sell these in our parts store one clutch fits most models, the only exception is any DC03 and the DC04 Zorbster model. We sell all clutches and brushbars in our parts store

LOUD VIBRATING, SCREECHING OR REVVING NOISE
If your Dyson vacuum cleaner is making a loud vibrating or revving noise.
First thing to try is empty your bin and make sure there are no blockages, if that doesn't solve it then remove the brushbar and then try switching your Dyson back on again.
If the noise is normal again then it is your brushbar or possibly clutch if applicable. Remove the brushbar, cut off any hair, remove the end caps of the brushbar and apply grease, WD-40 etc to the bearings. Put the end caps back on again and try and spin it, does it spin freely? If not then the brush may need replacing.
If the noise remains with the brushbar removed then I'm afraid it is a motor failure and will need a motor replacement.
If your motor fails with this noise usually it is down to the filters not being washed often enough and dust choking the motor.
If you have one of the ball model Dysons, such as DC15, DC24, DC25 etc. this could be your brushbar motor, brush bar or the end cap!
Best thing to do is remove your brushbar and end cap and inspect them. Any obvious sign of wear or damage then replace them. Also inspect the part at the other end of were the brushbar sits (this is the brushbar motor and drives the brushbar) Is it worn or damaged? If so you will need a new brushbar motor.
Try switching it on with the brushbar removed and the brushbar motor turned off at the switch.
Is the noise still there? If yes then there is a good chance you need a new main motor (not brush bar motor)
If your answer was no, try switching it on with the brush bar motor on (will need to be in the leaned back position for this) Is the noise still there? Yes, then you will need a new brushbar motor.
If your answer was no again, then replace your brushbar and end cap.
One more thing to try with the DC24 and DC25 ball models is to remove the HEPA filter (the one in the ball) switch it back on and off again. Has the noise gone? Yes, then the HEPA filter needs to be replaced.

My Dyson makes a very loud sound like it's caught something, but I can't find any blockage. It works using the wand.


If you have a clutch in your model, check to see if the brushbar turns. If it does, you probably have a bad/broken clutch spring which can not keep the three balls engaged in their holes. The clutch will need to be repaired or replaced. If the brushbar does not turn freely, your problem is the brushbar is seized on its shaft. This causes the clutch to slip and when this does, the design of the clutch make a sound like it has caught something, just like you described. To solve, remove the bottom plate and lift out the brushbar end opposite the belt. You do not have to remove the bar completely as it is a little difficult to fit the belt back on if you do. Grab the bar with one hand and the end cap with the other and pull off the end cap. You might have to rotate the cap a little to get it off. It is supposed to just slide on the shaft, so turning it either way will not hurt anything. If the shaft come out with the cap, that's okay. That means the opposite end cap slid off the shaft instead. Clean the area out on both ends and replace the caps. Reinstall the brushbar and make sure it now turns freely. Install the bottom plate, plug it in, turn it on, and enjoy the peaceful quiet sound again.

I have a Dyson DC14 Full Kit. We just got new thick carpet and the vacuum is very hard to push and leave deep indents in the carpet. Also the dial that goes from carpet to bare floors seems to make no...


Hello,

This sounds like your roller brush has stopped spinning for some reason. Turn the machine upside down when set to carpeting, and make sure the handle of the vacuum is down, as if you were in the vacuum posistion, and not up like the handle is when you're storing it.

Is your brush roller spinning? If it's not, there are two kinds of agitator brushes on the Dyson DC14, each has it's own troubleshooting.

If your beater brush is perfectly rounded in shape, then you have the newer style Dyson DC14 that doesn't use a clutch mechanism. Either belt has broken, or falled off, and is causing the brush not spin. Here's instructions with a pictorial on how to fix this problem;

Step 1. Unplug the vacuum cleaner.

  • Lay the machine flat on the floor and turn it over so that the base can be viewed.
  • Use a coin to turn the three soleplate fasteners and remove the soleplate as shown.

  • Check the brushbar for blockages and ensure the brushbar is rotating freely by hand.
  • If a blockage is present, carefully use a pair of scissors to cut away any hair and fibres from the brushbar ensuring you do not cut any of the bristles on the brushbar.

If the roller brush still doesn't spin after checking and removing any obstructions, then you need to replace the belt (or clutch if you have the early models). Here's a video that explains how to replace the clutch mechanism on Dyson vacuums;

Belt is still attached, but brush will not turn.


Hi,

If the motor runs but the brushes aren't turning, there are several possible reasons:

1. There is something trapped in or around the brush bar. Lie the vacuum on one side and make sure you can turn the brushes by hand. They should give some resistance when turning by hand, but the should turn.
2. The belt is worn/stretched and is slipping. This is often accompanied by the smell of burning rubber.
3. The belt is broken. It may still look attached to attached to the brushbar but it could be broken inside.
4. The brushbar isn't inserted correctly.


REMEDY: Please follow these simple instructions to determine the cause of the fault.

Disconnect the power and allow to cool for at least an hour if you have been using it


1. Sit on a chair, turn the vacuum upside down and hold it between your knees:

belectric_43.jpg

2. Undo the 3 fasteners at the positions shown in the picture below on the underside of the dyson (use a coin). Pivot the back edge of the sole plate upwards and lift off the sole plate which covers the brush bar:

belectric_44.jpgbelectric_45.jpg

3. Check for any debris around the brushes that may be stopping it from turning

4. Check that the brushbar is correctly inserted:

belectric_49.jpg

5. Check that the belt is intact and tight and correctly looped over the motor spindle:

belectric_47.jpg

If the belt is intact and tight, the brushbar turns freely and is correctly inserted and the motor runs, then your belt is probably worn/stretched and needs replacing.

All of the other possible faults can be fixed once the sole plate is removed (Step 2). Remove any debris from the brushbar, make sure it is correctly inserted, and make sure the belt is correctly looped over both the motor spindle and brushbar.

If you need to replace the belt, please see my other post for replacing the belt on a DC07

http://www.fixya.com/support/t7232645-fit_new_drive_belt


If you have done all of the above and there is still no obvious reason why the brushbar isn't turning, please post back for further assistance.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
BElectric.

How to fit a new drive belt


Hi,

There are different models of DC07 and the guide below is for the "standard" model. There are some slight variations on different DC07 models, but this should be more or less the same for all of them.


Disconnect the power and allow to cool for at least an hour before replacing the belt.


1. Sit on a chair, turn the vacuum upside down and hold it between your knees:

belectric_33.jpg

2. Undo the 3 fasteners at the positions shown in the picture below on the underside of the dyson (use a coin). Pivot the back edge of the sole plate upwards and lift off the sole plate which covers the brush bar:

belectric_34.jpgbelectric_35.jpg

3. Check for any debris arounf the brushes and the the spindle

4. If the old belt is still intact, slide the belt off the motor spindle first. Then pull the brushbar upwards and away from the base of vacuum. Make note of how the old belt feeds through the hole and how the brushbar was correctly inserted.


belectric_36.jpg

5. Remove the old belt from the brushbar and loop the new one over. Feed the new belt back through the hole and re-insert the brushbar.

Make sure the plastic tabs on the end of the brushbar fit back into the slots correctly and the end caps are in place:

belectric_37.jpg

6. Loop the open end of the belt over your thumb, twist 90 degrees, the stretch the belt over the motor spindle untwisting it as you hook it over. It is easier to hook your fingers over the back of the hoover (see picture) to give you extra leverage when stretching the belt. After hooking the belt over the spindle, check to make sure the belt is straight and there are no twists.

(Some people find it easier to stretch the new belt over the spindle before fully re-inserting the brush-bar)

belectric_38.jpgbelectric_39.jpg

7a If you hooked the belt over the motor spindle before full re-inserting the brushbar, re-insert the brushbar now (as described in step 5)

7b Re-attach the sole plate - Insert the 3 plastic tabs on the inside of the rubber bumper at the front of the vacuum and pivot it downwards back into place. Tighten the 3 fasteners again using a coin.


belectric_40.jpgbelectric_41.jpg


This should be everything you need to know to replace the belt in your DC07. Please post back if you have any difficulty replacing the belt or need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

Burning plastic smell when using the vacuum cleaner


HI, Thanks for contacting the FixYa team.

1. Plastic Burning Smell - This means that there is friction in a plastic part of your Dyson. The only place this will be coming from is the BrushBar. The brushbar has jammed somehow. The smell arises as the rubber belt is still trying to turn the plastic brushbar but the brushbar is not moving. To solve the problem you will need to unscrew the soleplate using a 2 pence piece, this is done by inserting the 2 pence piece into the 3 plastic screws on the underneath of the Dyson. Turn the screws a quarter anticlockwise. You can then remove the soleplate. You will probably see that there is a build up of debris by the brushbar. This is more common on The Animal version as pet hair mixed with dust gets stuck in here, especially if the machine has been used on a damp or wet surface. So clean this area out and then try manually rotating the brush bar in each direction. If you have been using the machine for too long with the burning smell then it is likely that your brushbar will be melted where the belt attaches to it. If this is the case then you will need to get a new brushbar. If the brushbar is not too damaged check that the belt has not broken. If the belt has not broken then replace the soleplate. Turn the screws a quarter in a clockwise direction. Should your belt be broken then please re-post and we will show you how to sort this. Thank you

Is there an easy way to see if a drive belt may be broken? It's so difficult to push my Kenmore upright vacuum!


Well there is only turning the vacuum over and see if the brush is rotating.

If it is not moving then you need to replace the belt.

If you need to know how to remove the bottom plate to replace the belt, please post the model number, the numbers you posted above are not the kenmore model numbers, the model numbers will look like this
