SOURCE: Brushbar not spinning

Hi.
If your Dc14 is all floors it will have A clutch fitted this is easy to determine just stand in front of your machine look down at the left hand side there will be a coloured knob on the side e.g. blue.yellow,green,purple this will have a pointer on it which when you pull handle back to vacuum must move to drive position you can rotate it by hand if it is stuck in park position ,
If there is no belts broken the brushes will now turn.
If they don’t the chances are one of the 2 belts have snapped.
You will then need Manuals to help you repair the problem.

SOURCE: Brushbar not spinning

Well dummy me. I called Dyson. There is an on/off switch RIGHT NEXT TO THE MAIN ON OFF for JUST the beater bar. Itis not highlighted in the manual and I never even looked at the front of the machine! Pressing did reactivate beater bar after the auto shut off caused by the sock! HOWEVER I am keeping the more complicated clutch instructions, just in case. Thanks!

Even though the belts are intact they can still be stretched and will not turn the brush. Here is a link to the belts you need:

SOURCE: On the piece that covers the brushbar and motor

In theory, yes. If the brushbar isn't held firmly, then the belt isn't running smoothly which puts more strain on the motor. This can cause the motor to get hot very quickly which will trip the thermal overload protection.

After it switches off, do you have to wait several minutes before it will turn back on?

SOURCE: Hello! Help!! The brushbar

Sorry this is not a solution. But after reading your problem and other people with the same problem, i just wanted to say i have a Dyson DC24 ball and have only had it 1 year and the exact same thing has happend it is spotless inside and out including the pipes and brush bar, still no matter how many times i press the reset button it still wont spin. I am going to go back to a Hover because im fed up with this piece of **** Dyson! sorry but wasnt there a time when things where built to last! I am now using an ancient Hover junior which is the spare vacume cleaner we keep in the cupboard. Dyson LOL.

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 vacuum beater bar will not spin, belt is fine


Hi, Thanks for using FixYa! My name is Don/

I will try and help you solve your problem with your Dyson.

If your brushbar wont turn and the belt is definatley fitted correctly then there is a problem with the brushbar itself.


If the brushbar is old then they can be affected internally by clogging up.


Assuming you have the "Clutch" version of Dyson. This is one that has a spiral brushbar.

There are 2 types of brushbar, 1 for the Clutch Version and 1 for the Non Clutch version.

Either way you will need to replace the brushbar. Please watch the video....

DC24. Why won't it turn on?


J Luke, it's not fully clear what the issue is - no power at all, or that the brush won't spin. The manual can be found here (
https://www.dyson.co.uk/medialibrary/Files/Dyson/Support/downloads/UK/floorcare/Manuals/DC24_Manual.pdf ) and a Dyson graphic for resetting the brushbar is here (
Reset brushbar ) A very common issue that a lot of people don't pick up on from a first perusal of the manual is that the brushbar will not spin when the vacuum is in a full upright position (this is what switches the suction over to the handle/wand, and no use spinning the brush with no suction, so it turns off). You may want to try again with the vacuum back inclined from upright. There are some models where part of resetting the brushbar after a blockage is to press the brushbar switch (grey switch next to main power switch according to forums, though not pointed out in the manuals) several times.

Other forums say that if something has actually failed, it's a PCB about 1% of the time and the actual brushbar motor the other 99%. That swap would go into a lot more detail than likely needed here.

Good Luck!

Beater brush won't spin but belt is intact and ok. Brush is clean and spins freely by hand.


For your beater brush to spin, you have to meet two conditions:
1) the vacuum cleaner has to be reclined (put your foot on the front and pull back on the handle).
2) The clutch actuator (the dial where you switch between BEAR FLOORS and CARPETS needs to be set to CARPETS).

If the brushbar/beater bar still doesn't spin after that, call the Dyson helpline, they will assist you. If you are saying that the brushbar isn't spinning because it is not picking up any dirt, you may have a loose internal hose, a blockage in the machine or the bristles on the brushbar are worn. Call the Dyson helpline for assistance.

Dyson Animal 17 - brush stopped turning


The belt will stop itself from spinning if you accidentally picked up a shoestring or vacuumed the edged of a carpet and the carpet got caught. To have the brush spinning again, simply step on the front of the machine, pull back the handle, turn the machine on with the red power button and press the gray button next to the red button - that's the ON/OFF button for the brushbar. If it doesn't spin, press and hold the button down for 10 seconds. If it still doesn't work, call the Dyson helpline, they'll have you open up the cleaner and inspect the belt and brushbar motor and if all else fails, they'll refer you to a local repair dealer in your area to fix it.
