Having problems with your Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?
THE BRUSH ISN'T TURNING, EVERYTHING ELSE IS WORKING.
Sounds like the beater brush is frozen and won't turn. Remove the beater brush and clean off all debris, especially at both ends. You will find a square(?) piece at each end of the beater brush that holds it in place. This need to turn freely. Put a little WD40 on these where the center rod of the beater brush enters the small holders and turn by hand until they turn freely. Once this is done, assemble with new belt, making sure the belt is put on properly.

I have a Hampton Bay ceiling fan St. Regis model #138 498. Somehow the remote got messed up and now the lower light flashes on/off when the power is on and nothing else works. This happened one other time and I simply turned off the switches and when they were turned back on everything worked fine. This fix does not work this time.
No suction I have new belts. Everything is clean. No clogs. When I turn it on it smells like rubber , the brush doesnt spin. Everything seems to be free flowing.. Roller brush isnt stuck on the ends.

Water is not being discharged. I have filled the reservoir that holds the carpet cleaner fluid And I have filled the water container. I know how to use the cleaner, it has always worked, But now, no water is being discharged to the carpet. I turn it on, squeeze the trigger, but nothing comes out. The wheel that is suppose to spin (to indicate that water is being discharged) is not spinning. Everything else works. I.e. the suction works, and the hand held accessories work.

The roller will turn only when the knob is on "carpet", and even then only when the handle is tilted back ... Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

Have a Centralux Aerus about 5 years old. Don't see a model number. There is suction but beater brush quit working. Was using for a few minutes, shut it off for a few minutes, turned it back on and suction only. Tried the reset button also. Tried the sidekick attachment and it works fine. There was no smell like something was hot. Belt is fine. Are there any fuses or anything else to try? This vacuum cleaner has not really been used that much, it is hard to believe the motor would need replaced
There probably is a loose wire in the handle near the switch or a wire off near the swivel elbow near the vac power head. With the right fastener tool to remove some screws you can fix it yourself ... Electrolux Centralux Vacuum

My Bissell Model 3760-4 is not working properly. The belt has been replaced (and checked 3 times), but the brush bar does not move when the brush motor button is on. The little metal turning piece that turns the belt is turnable with one's finger when the belt is off, but when we put it all back together and turn on the vacuum, the brush bar does not go around and the burning belt smell returns. The portable part of the machine works properly. It's the brush bar. It has been cleared of hair, etc

I have the Hoover Deluxe Elite Rewind with the 24 ft cord reel. I can't seem to find the instructions or a model # exactly for it.

I took the cover off the brush so I could cut off all the hair that was wrapped around it (vacuum was working fine, I just noticed the hair). I pulled the brush/spinner thing off one side, cleaned everything, popped it back in where it belonged, and tried to make sure the belt was in the proper alignment. However, when I turned the vacuum on, it makes a horrible noise like I'm sucking up rocks. What have I done wrong in putting it back together? It seemed simple...
