Dyson DC07 belt change has resulted in very noisy vacuum!


Hi I agree with the first 2 solutions above but not the 3rd one.
If you have suction coming through the hose when the machine is in upright position then the u bend has nothing to do with this problem.

Right so ... The belt snapped.

The answer to you question is "why did the belt snap" its true that it could just be old age but its more likely to have been caused by a foreign object being sooked up.

How the belt/brushbar/motor interact

Your belt simply connects the motor to the brushbar know as Direct Drive. If an object get inside the space between the motor and the brushbar or if it can jam the brushbar then this will cause the rubber to burn. The motor will keep spinning and the belt wont be able to so will snap.

So its easy to see that the belt has snapped and people just think "'oh the belt has snapped"

You might wonder where im coming from here.

Anyway because the brushbar got jammed it may also have been buckled slighty either as a result of the foreign object causing it to stop suddenly from spinning at high speed or/and the result of the heat build up.

The rattling noise you now find your Dyson making is more than likely because your brushbar is buckled and when it spins the bristles are hitting the housing unit.

Your belt will snap again unless you replace the brushbar

DYSON DC07 ORIGIN BRUSH ROLLERS WONT ROLL WHEN HOVVERING BURNING SMELL AND SMOKE FROM BOTTOM OF HOVER ROLLERS WILL MOVE BY HAND ANY IDEAS, THERES NO BLOCKAGES.


Hi There,
Ok so I have made a few videos about what to check when you have issues like this.
THere are 3 possible causes.
1. THe bearings in the brush roller are worn so even though you can turn it by hand the belt cannot.
2. The clutch belts are too stretched and are slipping causing them to heat up and start to melt.
3. The roller on the clutch has melted as a result of the heat from teh belt.
From experience the most likely cause is that the bearings are worn and likely the belts are stretched. I will link a video from our youtube channel watch the one I link and then do a search within the channel for DC07 and you will see the other videos.
You should be able to get away with just replacing the bearings or the belts. I will say that if you have got to the point where you are having issues with the front end I would encourage you to replace the DC07 filters too normally they have a similar lifespan.

I have a dyson dc07 the belt breaks all the time and the whole brush has just snapped underneath ?


There appears to be an issue with parts connectoed to the belt and brushbar. This iscaused the belt to stick and the heat from this has caused the belt to break adnd also eventually caused the brushbar to melt

I have just replaced the belt on my Dyson DC07 today, hoovered a mat & it broke, when I took it off, it looked as though it had melted & the spindle it attaches too was burning hot, what is the...


Make sure that the brush is turning freely and that there is no thread or lint preventing it from turning. It sounds like it has siezed and this caused the melt down of your belt.

Older Dyson 07 Animal, loud ratcheting noise on carpet setting


That is an indication that the belts are worn, stretched or broken. You simply need to replace the belt. Here is a link to the belt(s) you need and a manual you can view:

I was vacuuming with the Dyson DC 17 and sucked up a berber carpet string by accident and after cutting and pulling it all out of the bottom brush part, the brush no longer spins but the suction part...


The belt could be snapped. If this model has a brush protected belt then it has to be repaired by a service call. If however you can get to the brush roll belt by removing the bottom sole plate (turning over the vacuum so that you're looking at the base) with the plastic catches undone where you can see the belt then check to see if it has snapped. If it hasn't snapped then it may just need readjusting.

If you can't see the belt and has protective covers that can't be undone then the model has a brush control system that has to be replaced by someone who can do Dyson repairs.

Brush won't turn


HI THERE,
FIRSTLY REMOVE SOLEPLATE AND ENSURE THE BELT ACTUALLY TURNS WITH THE BRUSH BAR WHEN YOU TURN IT BY HAND AND ENSURE BRUSHBAR IS SAT IN HOUSING CORRECTLY, IF BELT DOESNT TURN OR IF SNAPPED THEN CLUTCH WILL NEED REPLACING ( I SELL FOR £5 )BUT IF BELT IS FINE THEN PUT SOLEPLATE BACK ON AND ENSURE CLUTCH IS TURNED TO AUTO BEFORE TURNING ON.

No suction when vacuming floors


Hi.

There are 2 types of Dc07 one is clutched & has two belts the second has only one belt going from motor to brush roller.

Lay machine on its side pull back handle as if you are to vac carpet switch machine on look to see if brush roller is spinning.

If it is not spinning unplug machine from mains supply & remove the sole plate by turning the three plastic screws to unlock position, Lift sole plate away if you have non clutched machine you will now see the brush roller with A belt going from this to the motor shaft belt may have snapped or come off so replace it.

If your Dyson has A clutch unit this engages the brush roller when you pull the handle back to vacuum.

Check the clutch control knob which is at the bottom left side of machine looking from the front.
It should rotate to drive position when handle is pulled back.

If it doesnt turn the knob by hand to drive.

If you still have no brush rotation after doing all this then either the clutch is faulty or the second belt which goes clutch to motor has snapped & will need replacing.

There are service manuals available for these repairs at this site
