Here is the link to the detailed instructions for belt changing. When you take the brushroll out, make sure that the brushroll spins freely. If it doesn't it will burn up your belts and needs to be replaced.

Brush won't spin when carpet cleaner is running


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
If the vacuum cleaner brush is not spinning, the brushroll bearing might be jammed. Try removing the brushroll assembly and cleaning all hair, string, lint, etc. from the brushroll bearing. If that doesn't solve the problem the brushroll may need to be replaced.

Broken belt dyson Dc41


Belt was broken, so I had to go inside the motor assembly -- torx screws all the way. The problem is finding a replacement belt without buying a whole new power drive.

There is a loud noise coming from the bottom of the vacuum only when I have it on the carpet setting. It doesn't have this problem on the floor setting. What could possibly be wrong and is it easily...


Check for a broken belt or something caught around the brush. To check if the belt is broken, try turning the brush by hand. If it turns freely, then the belt is broken and needs replaced. It also may be loose. If that's the case, it won't turn easily, but still needs to be replaced.

The belts are probably broken, stretched or worn. I would try replacing the belts if you haven't in a while. You can get the belts you need here:

The brush doesn't spin anymore, but the belt is not broken. model DC 07; approx three years old


The belt may not be broken but after 3 years the belt will have stretched and it will not turn the brush. You should change the belt every year. Changing the belt is an inexpensive fix. I would try that first and if it doesn't do the trick I would take it to a repair shop. You can get the belt you need here:

Can't get the vaccum cover off to see if there is a broken belt.


IF it is a standard style vacuum, then there will normally be between 5 and 7 screws that need to be removed, the the cover can be pried off (usually by depressing 2 locking tabs
I did not read theentire problem because it wasn't allowing me to read the whole complaint so I presume you are trying to replace a broken belt?

Brush froze up and keeps breaking belts


I had the same problem but I found that I had replaced belt incorrectly. After placing one end of belt around pully, it has to be run behind the "belt disengager" which looks like a 1/2" wide metal tab just past pulley. After placing belt correctly I had no more belt, burning smell or brush problems.

Broken belt


Hi.

If you cant easily see how to replace the Belt then I think your Dc07 has A clutch unit.

This type of Dc07 has 2 belts one from motor to clutch & the second belt goes clutch to brush roller.

You will need to remove the clutch unit completey from the machine in order to replace the belts, Its alot to explain so try this site it has service manuals covering this.
