Having problems with your Dyson DC05 Bagless Canister Cyclonic Vacuum ?

Head not spinning and sucking up

\015 We have pulled out all visible hair and put it all back together, but it is not spinning and therefore not sucking up from the carpet. Very annoying, please help\015

Answers :

You share a common misconception. There is nothing to spin except the dust in the canister. All plastic parts are static. If you've cleaned the filters as instructed in the manual (download from Dyson website if you're unsure and have lost the original), the most likely problem is that you have a blockage in the pipework. You need to separate the hose and wand, and remove the hose from the machine, and check all through - you will almost certainly find something that shouldn't be there!\012
\012Good luck.

Hoover WindTunnel S3765. The motor spins and the belt turns when I turn the brushes on, and the brushes will spin. The problem is that when I do this on carpet, the brushes stop spinning. As soon as I pull the "head" off the carpet, the brushes spin again. It's almost as if the vacuum suction is too great. I took the head apart and watched the motor turn the metal spindle that the belt rests on, and the belt turns as well.

Miele, Flamenco II. 2 probs. 1. the head brush is not turning when I put it on the floor.
