Having problems with your Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?

Roller motor on a DC17 dyson wont turn on

\015 I have a dyson dc17 animal- the beater bar motor got jammed and quit working- I cleaned all the hair and junk away from the belt, and drive area. The motor will now come on when the handle is lowered. Is there a fuse or a reset switch someplace that I can reset or replace, Or is the motor shot.\015

Answers :

There is a reset button under the cover that houses the on/off switches. remove the handle/wand and look on the back (where the top of the hose sits) for 2 screws (its a torx/star head screw size t10 i believe). remove them and locate 4 small locking tabs that hold the switch cover to the frame of the vacuum. Depress them and pop the cover off (2 towards the top and 2 towards the bottom). Youll see 3 switches (2 square red buttons and one small cylindrical shaped one). Push the small red one (the one to the left if my memory serves me right). you should hear a click. if you do than the switch is reset. if not check all connections to all 3 switches. if you see nothing loose or not connected, you may need a new brushbar motor. try it
Well... not sure about this, but worth a shot. I did get one of these in for repair a while back, with exactly the same problem. The owner hadn't realized that there's an on/off switch for the brush motor. It's located on the front of the handle. Not sure, but it may be that this switch cuts off automatically if the motor gets overloaded, and needs to be reset manually.  Try it!

My Dyson DC17 beater bar motor works intermittedly. I have to almost whack it on the floor to turn it on and then shuts off again. I have checked the belt and it is fine, also have checked for blockages. The switch to turn the beater bar on or off will not work when the beater bar motor is off. the suction is fine though.

I'm trying to figure out which dyson vacuum is better, the DC14 or DC17. from what i read, the DC17 is the newer model of the DC14, the DC17 added an extra motor for the brush, but from the dyson site, the DC17 has less suction power. it went from 250AW (dc14) to 220AW (dc17). is that a significant difference that i should be worried about?


Hi,DC17 is much better than DC14. I always believe User's review are much better than what Features Company usually Displays.Read :-http://www.epinions.com/review/Dyson_DC17_Animal_Vacuum/content_404790546052 ... Vacuums

Dyson DC14 roller doesn't turn but everything else works. The belt is on correctly, the roller is clean and it turns manually so I can't figure out the problem.

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
