Having problems with your Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?

I have a dyson upright and he beater brush is not turning


Answers :

There are four possible reasons for the problem. We will take them from the easiest to fix to the hardest.
\015\012
\015\012 1. The manual clutch is not engaged. On the bottom right side of the vaccum is the manual clutch knob. Be sure it is rotated all the way forward. The clutch should now engage when the handle is lowered from the upright position to the vacuumig position.
\015\012
\015\012 2. The brush bar is entangled with debris keeping it from turning. Turn the vacuum over, remove the brush bar cover by using a coin to turn the screw like pinions a quarter turn counter-clockwise. Remove any hair, carpet fibers or other items wrapped around the brush bar. Disengage the manual clutch by turning it toward the back of the vacuum. Try turning the brush bar by hand to see that it moves freely.
\015\012
\015\012 3. The brush bar is broken. While you have the brush bar cover removed, inspect the brush bar for any cracks or other signs of damage. The frequency of a damaged or defective brush bar is higher than most people may think. If damaged, the brush bar will need to be replaced.
\015\012
\015\012 4. The clutch assebly is not functioning properly. In that case, it would be best to have a service tech handle the matter. If you want to inspect the clutch or even consider replacing it yourself, this link may be of interest: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7_CtaFcc5HU

\015\012Hope I've been of some help.
If it is a model with a clutch knob fitted to the side of the body housing, make sure that knob is turned into the clockwise direction "auto" position. On those models, the beater bar does not turn until the machine is reclined in the "use" position. \012
\012If it is an origin model or one without a clutch knob, simply replace the belt.

Placing the handle of my Dyson DC07 into its upright and locked position causes the beater bar to stop turning.

I have the Eureka 4870 "The Boss" Smart Vac. The beater bar began to turn constantly and can't be shut by moving the Brush Roll Contol to Bare Floor position or the machine to the upright postion. It has also eaten two new belts. A local tech says he has seen this problem whereby the free-wheel assembly that makes contact with the belt to engage the beater bar is misalgned and cannot disengage. It is usually the chassis which would mean replacement of enough parts that would not be worthwhile
