DC7s have two drivebelts that turn the brush bar - one connects the output of the motor to the clutch, the other connects the clutch to the brush bar.
You can check the latter simply by removing the sole plate and looking. Unfortunately the other beltthe belt is not turning the brush bar when in the - 2_bing.gif is hidden under a plastic cover, so you cant see if it is okay or not without some dismantling. This cover is not easy to remove and requires a Torx driver to under the securing screws.
If, after removing the cover, the other belt is okay, then you have a faulty clutch. New clutches are available onreasonably cheaply, but again good tools and DIY skills are required.
Have a look atwww.dysonmedic.comwhich has some excellent info on dismantling and repairing a DC 07, but unless you haveaccessto such tools, and feel confident to tackle it, it's probably time tocallDyson or aVacuumrepairer.

Why does Beater Bar Fail to turn


Per owner's manual
1. Make sure the brush control is set on carpet mode.
2. The brush will only spin when the handle is reclined.
Others:
The belt has worn out and needs replaced. Although it appears okay, stretching is possible, which would result in too loose a grip to turn the bar.
If the belt was replaced, it may not have been pulled tight enough to turn the bar. To tighten on many vacuums, simply loosen the screws on each end of the brush, pull toward the front of the power head and hold while tightening the screws.

Dyson dc33 brush won't turn but belt not broken


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC33 is suitable for cleaning hard and carpeted floors. It includes a brush control system which allows you to shut the brush bar off when cleaning hard floor surfaces. It's worth checking that the brush control is set correctly - it's possible it may have been inadvertently set to 'Hard floors'. For the brush bar to rotate, it must be set to 'Carpets':

It's also important to note that the brush bar will not rotate when the vacuum is standing upright, so make sure you recline it into the normal vacuuming position before testing it.

If this doesn't resolve the issue, please turn off and unplug the machine, then check that there are no obstructions in the cleaner head which could be jamming the brush bar. Remove any threads or hair around the brush bar, as these can affect the performance.

Brush roll won't turn only a few times


Shane:
Unplug the machine and lay it on it's back with the handle release in the release position (the vacuum head should be laying flat also). Remove the foot plate from the vacuum head. Manually turn the brush roll (called a beater bar). The beater bar should turn fairly easily and the belt should turn the motor armature shaft (now would be a good time to check the inside surface of the belt for grooves or damaged spots which would cause the armature shaft to slip on the belt). If the beater bar has too much resistance to your turning it, I would suspect that the bearings at each end of the beater bar are fouled with hair, carpet fibers and string. Remove the beater bar from the machine and manually spin the motor armature shaft (where the belt contacts the motor) to see that the motor armature shaft spins freely. Remove the bearings from the end of the beater bar (they won't come off easily so you may have to use a prying tool such as a screwdriver). Try to spin the bearings. If they are fouled, dribble some rubbing alcohol into the bearing (I use a spray bottle... it's much neater) and turn the bearings while keeping them soaked with alcohol until they spin freely without ratcheting. Drop some 30 weight engine oil into the bearings until they are saturated, then clean the outsides of the bearings with a clean rag (no alcohol) until the outsides of the bearings are completely dry and no oil drips out of them (don't want the oil to attract dirt). You'll probably need to replace the belt. Reassemble the machine and it should work for you.

Ratchet noise, beater will not turn, belt not broken, in carpet mode the Dyson d07 makes huge ratchet noise and the belt will not turn the beater brush.


Ok, so I had the same ratching noise and took the advice of many sites directing me to clean the brush. But like most I cleaned the brush and the noise continues and the brush does not spin. Reluctant to take it to get serviced I dug a little deeper and now it works just fine. This is what you need to do as removing any hair from just the brush part will not be enough.
Remove the entire brush bar from the bottom of the Dyson, this means pulling the bar out of the drive belt. This is not to difficult just use a little muscle as the belt will stretch. Once the bar is out grasp hold of the two plastic end caps on the brush bar which the brush bar actual spins in. These two caps are connected by a slim metal rod which runs through the brush bar. Place one hand on each side and begin to twist and pull until one of the caps comes off. Once the cap is off of the one side you can pull the other cap from the other side through the brush bar as this cap will be the one attached to the slim bar I mentioned above. If like mine you will see a ton of hair wrapped around these caps and inside the ends of the brush bar. Clean them out as best as possible.
After you clean it out, run the cap with the rod back through the brush bar, attach the other cap and twist and push together. Make sure the caps lineup which each other just like they were when you pulled it out. You'll notice how much more freely the brush bar spins between the two caps then before you cleaned it. Now, pull on the drive belt and feed the brush bar back through and attach as it was to begin with. This did the trick for me.

Belt wont turn makes a loud noise when put on carpet setting


If this is a Dyson with a protected belt that can't be replaced then it will have to be sent out to Dyson or get a Dyson servicepersonnel to check it over - protected belt motors are difficult to fix by yourself. If its clicking all the time, then it means the belt has to be replaced. In the mean time check that there are no obstructions on the beater bar and behind it and also check that the brush stop roller at the top of the hood is in the right position. It should move automatically when the handle is swung down in normal operation.

Correct position of beater bar on a Dyson DC14?


I had the same problem. I removed the brush from the machine. The brush should move freely when removed. If it doesn't move freely, pull the ends from the brush, both ends come off(one will have a rod fixed to it). I would suggest you clean the ends and the inside of where the ends sit on the brush. I applied a little grease on both end housings(inside end housing) if no grease available try washing up liquid. Put the brush ends back on the brush. I then spun the brush to check that it moved freely. It should move freely, if it does fit it back on the machine and it should be silent. If you cant get it to move freely I suggest a replacement brush. Tip: I used a blunt knife and placed it through the belt to avoid removal of the belt. Good luck. Cheers Jason

Brush Roll belt won't engage on WindTunnel self-propelled


When you had the brush roll off, did the ends turn freely? If not then the brush won't turn and the belt will just slip. You would have to replace the brush roll if either of the ends are frozen. Other then that you would have to remove the top cover to see if there any broken parts, there is a spring loaded asm, it has a black wheel that will push the V belt when it is in the carpet setting and the handle is in the down position, it could be jammed so the roller is stuck.
