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

Beater bar won't work. Have done all checks in manual. Bar is clean, belt seems to be connected properly and in good shape. Any ideas? John Rike [email protected]


Answers :

Hi, I would have to say, that if the roller-brush Is clean and the belt is on and in good shape, that the problem will be in the vacs motor assembly itself. If the motor comes on, the beater bar will engage and pick up debris.If it is coming on and not rolling, it it damaged internally.If the unit will not come on at all, you can pull out the on/off switch and try to bypass to see if unit starts, and if so replace switch.If you have excess to a volt meter you can check for power at the switch.Touch one lead to one terminal and the other to ground, should be 120v.Same coming out. If motor doesn't come on at all, more then likely, it has died on you, open windings, shorted to ground and will need replaced.Not knowing the cost off hand of this machine, I would compare prices of a motor to a new one.I hate to give you this news, But If the switch is good, and the motor is off, it has failed on you.Try and do the checks and get back to me, so we can be for sure on it. Sincerely,
Shastalaker7

Miele vacuum Sometimes when I hit the auto roll up cord button or even move the cord, the power vacuum goes off. I move the cord again and it comes back on. I took it apart and looked at the connection from the cord to the auto roller. These are the electrical slip on type connections and are still in good shape. There are no bends in the cord. I air dusted everthing inside, put it together (with no extra parts!). Good news..it powered up so I did not break it, but it still has the same problem.

Both belts are in good shape, I cleaned the brush roll and it is free of debris, the setting is on carpet and the brush roll still will not turn. There is a "burning rubber" smell when you attempt to push the vaacum forward a few times. The small belt does not seem to be pulling properly but appears to be in good shape.

Hello, we have a Miele cat and dog turbo 5000 vacuum cleaner which we bought in December. It has just started blowing air out of the grid on the top of the cleaner instead of sucking from the tube. The whole top section which is opened to change the bags doesn't seem to want to clip down properly either. Do you have any ideas> I'm gutted as it was so good until this happened. Thanks Michelle.


The lid not closing properly is almost certainly the cause of your problem. Without that lid sealed tight to the body you will get no suction through the hose. So, the question is: why isn't the lid clipping down properly? Did you just change the bag ... Vacuums

I have a Polti Vaporetto household steam cleaner that I bought 16 years ago. I haven't used it for about 10 years because the connection between the steam er and the attachments doesn't work properly and it is difficult to use. The shop where I bought it no longer sells them and can't get them fixed anymore. I'm about to ditch it, but thought I would have another go at using it. (It was very expensive). Now I can't get the safety cap off so I can't fill it or test it. Any ideas on what I can do

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
