Having problems with your Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?

DC07 grinding noise

\015 Hi,\012\012My Dyson DC07 All Floors recently started making a horrible loud plastic grinding noise but only when the machine is leaned back to engage the brush bar. I thought the clutch assembly had failed and replaced it. Unfortunately this has not fixed the problem. The brush bar seems to be turning freely so I'm looking for any other ideas?\012\012Thanks,\012\012Chris.\015

Answers :

I had the same problem with mine, I took it to a repair shop. The problem is where the belt passes through from the brush and goes inside the machine. Move the belt over a bit and you will see that a plastic guide has been bent over and is pressing onto the brush, which causes the noise. Just bend it straight again and it stops.

When I vacuum w/ the brush control in the on position it make a really loud noise, almost like a grinding sound. I have looked at it and nothing seems to be wrong, but I notice that the pin that engages the belt seems to vibrate a bit, possibly creating the noise.

Nothing is caught any other place and it only makes the noise when the brush in in the on position.
