Question about Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
What do I do?
Check the brush roller can be moved by hand & that it is not snagging on something.
If it is difficult to rotate remove sole plate by turning the 3 plastic screws to unlock position lift plate off & clean brush roller & check you can turn it after this.
If brush roller is free to rotate the chances are the clutch is faulty & will need to be replaced.

It has manuals that cover clutch replacing on all Dyson models.

The belt that rotates the beater bar may be damaged - call the Dyson helpline for troubleshooting and for a solution to the problem.

SOURCE: why does my Dyson animal
I can't probably help you but I can tell you what Dyson told me. I have this same vacuum and it just started making that same noise. When I called their rep they had me take off the bottom plastic piece (comes off real easy by taking a coin and turning the three circles). Check to make sure the belt isn't broke. Then, they had me pull toward me the roller brush and turn it to get it seperated from the belt. Then, take off the belt. On mine, the spindle was full of dog hair clogging it. I took twizers and narrow pliers and pulled everything off. Then put it back together. It worked fine for the next few times I vacuumed then it started again. So, I did the same thing again and found this spindle covered with the hair again. Cleaned it, put it back together and it worked again. Today, while vacuuming I picked up a piece of string and that noised started again. Turned it over and saw that string on that spindle. Took it off, cleaned it and it worked again then started the screeching again. So, tomorrow I am calling a vacuum repair place. IF you have the same vacuum (which you do) it should still be under warranty. Dyson told me I would have nothing to pay unless I abused the vacuum which I did not. Hopefully I am not without it very long...I have two golden retrievers who do shed alot.

Remove the bottom cover plate and rotate the brush by hand. Look for things that make noise like stones caught in the brush path, bad brush bearings, bad drive belt.

You either need A new clutch or clutch belts need replacing.
Its a lot to describe so try this it has manuals on how to do the job.
