Remove the bottom plate under the vacuum and check the brush assembly for being stuck. Remove the belt from the motor and try to start the machine--does the motor spin and have vacuum? This machine is not a wet-pickup type vacuum. If the motor now runs, remove the brush assembly and remove the end bearings. Clean the brush in hot water and dry off. Clean the outer bearing interiors with a Q tip swab wet with hot water, then another to dry them out. Use a third to apply a small amount of light machine oil (3in1, or sewing machine oil) to the brush ends and the bearing interiors. Reinstall the belt and turn the machine on--hopefully, this will get it working again. Good luck!

Hi.

Check that brush roller (beater bar) is free to turn with no obstruction.
If it is still noisey after doing this try this site for Dyson repair manuals.

Generic problem for all Vacuums
Clogged vacuum hose, new carpet
Posted by dpatricksr70 on Jun 20, 2008
Clogged vacuum hose, new carpet, have been through two vacuums already.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. When vacuuming it is a good idea to give your vacuum a burst of air once in a while to clear the hose and push the dust and dirt into the bag, simply just lift up on the powerhead or vacuum hose and give it a burst of air every 5 or 10 minutes. Also, we you like to know the brand name and model # of the vacuum. Some of the ways are to use a round metal ball or marble to see where the clog is in the hose and then you can use such things as the end of a broom handle, or you can use a wire coat hanger and bend the end to make a little hook and then try to grab the clog and say fish it out – or if you have another canister or shop vac you can tune on both canisters and try to pull the clog apart and sometimes that works as well – just be careful so that you do not puncture the electric hose because they are expensive in the area of $100.00 or more in some cases. If you need further assistance please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area.

So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
Thanks, Don the Vac Man

SOURCE: carpet brush turning on and off during vacumming

If the problem is only with the brush, and the vacuum motor is working all the time, then the most likely cause is a poor connection between the upper and lower parts of the machine. As you will know, the two parts can be separated easily and (especially if you do that often) the two little flat pins that make the electrical contact can become damaged. So check the pins, and the sockets they fit in to. If they are not visibly damaged, good contact can sometimes be restored by VERY SLIGHTLY bending the pins.
If you are able to check for electrical continuity between the pins in the brush part, then do so. If your machine has done a lot of work it may be that the so-called "carbon brushes" in the motor are worn out and are no longer making good contact so will need to be changed.
I hope this is helpful. If you need more information just post a reply and I'll see what else I can do. Please remember to rate this response. Good luck!

While vacuuming a rug on high (carpet setting) the power suddenly decreased. Now it will only run with low power, not picking up items on carpet


It sounds like you burned the belt. Turn the unit over, remove the cover plate where you see the brushes. On the side of the brush roller is where the belt is located. The belt should be very tight on the roller. Also, you may see little black rubber pieces stuck to the area where the end of the roller is or in the part where the belt runs. Get your owners manual out and read how to change the belt. I'll bet when you ran over the carpet it hung on some of the nap and hung the brush roller up for a second or so. That's all it takes sometimes to fry the belt on some vacumes. Sometimes new vacumes come with a new belt. Look in the bag or box and install it.

My brushes wont turn once the vacum is on the carpet.


If they are turning when they're off the carpet, then you have the brush height setting set too low. There should be a dial somewhere near the brushes, some say things like "high" to "low" or "high pile" to "low pile." Turn it one notch towards high/up and try it again, and keep turning one notch and trying until the brushes turn. You want them as close to the carpet as you can get them without them stopping. If this doesn't fix it, you have to be more specific as to whats going on.

Deodorizing the vacuum


First of all Clean out the vacum cleaner . Empty canister and take filter outside and hit on something to get all dust out . Now wash canister and filter with vinegar water and let dry before using vacum again. You might try using carpet fresh for pet odors on carpet and empty and clean canister and filter regularly. I own a cleaning business and this is a hard problem to solve with all vac. cleaners. Good Luck!!
