Having problems with your Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?
The beater bar seems to have worn and is loose. (very noisy) the vacuum still works but the beater bar rattles.
Not sure how I can help, as it seems you know what the problem is! Fit a new brush bar! On some Dyson models (not sure if the DC17 is one of them) you have to fit a new sole plate at the same time - they are supplied together as a kit. Good luck.

My dyson animal is hard to push on carpet - the beater bar is still operational. When I turn off the beater bar and run the vacuum on hardwood the beater bar stops moving, but it still ''rolls'' on the hardwood - it doesn't pull up like it used to. It also seems to not be picking up as well as it used to, although no blockages are present and the filter is clean.

My beater bar on my Kenmore 116.25615506 canister vacuum keeps turning on and off when I vacuum rugs. The suction continues, but the beater bar seems to be shorting or whatever. I checked the belts and they look like new. Any suggestions? The rest of the vacuum works fine!

Terrible noise My dyson was working great then started making this horrible noise. I cleaned the bar but noise is still there. I discovered the beater bar went around three passes then froze and started horrible noise again. my husband got the bar turning but after 2 swipes vacuuming it did it again. Can it be fixed or is it time to retire it and buy a new one. Wendy Kiser
That noise is the clutch. A very expensive part and very hard to replace. When a problem with the clutch happens it's generally not worth the time and money to replace.I suggest getting a different type of vacuum, maybe a Miele or Sebo. W ... Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
Beater bar has been rattling when running the vacuum. Stopped working all together today while vacuuming.
Hi\015\012The rattling sound is permanent and is supposed to alert the owner that the drive belt/clutch has come undone. Sadly it also means an official repair as the Animal has a protected belt that can't be repaired by the owner. ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
I have a DC25 that I just bought in Dec 10. The last few times I vacuumed the carpet, the beater bar worked on and off. Now it does not move at all. I took off the beater bar to see if there were any obstructions, but there were none. Could you please help me with this. Right now my husband is saying that we should not have bought such an expensive vacuum (which he has said all along). I want to prove him wrong!! Up til a couple of weeks ago, it was working perfectly and I have loved it!
This is a good quality machine which I am sure wil last a long time in answer to your question make sure that the setting is set for carpet and not just flooring ..the head needs to be flat on the floor for the beater to work .I am assuming that thi ... Dyson DC25 All Floors Bagless Upright Vacuum
I have a dyson DC28 vacuum and the power button flashes on and off and the beater bar quit turning. I turned it over and found some string caught on the beater bar which I removed, but the beater bar still does'nt turn and the power button still flashes on and off. I hope you can give me a solution to this problem.
I had the same symptom with my wife's DC28. The problem was associated with the cam driven height adjustment mechanism. The beater bar must rock freely up and down when pressing on the tabs that the end cam lobes actuate. On ours I found hair and cru ... Dyson DC28 Animal Bagless Upright Vacuum
Windtunnel first one used 6 times beater bar stopped working, took apart cleaned and belt was fine. this one had a reset switch for beater bar. had insurance at best buy so returned for a new one. used 2x beater bar not working and not dirty, no reset switch on this one., now back to the store for another? i don't even want the same one. I wonder how many they are gonna give me. This seems to be a common occurance.
Sorry, you feel like that. I have rentals and 6 windtunnel's (I prefer the bagged ones) and have never had a problem such as you have described. I think Hoover makes a great vacuum. ... Hoover U6630-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum

I ran my vacuum against an area rug that has strings around it and a few strings got caught up in the beater bar. Now, the beater bar does not function- the motor runs but the beater bar does not seem to be operating. I removed the strings from the bar.
Hi,\015\012\015\012There is a switch next to the main power switch on the handle which turns the brushbar on and off. When the beater bar becomes obstructed as in your case, there is a safety feature which cuts power to the beater bar. Al ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

I have a DC14. About a wk ago it was making loud sound and bar stopped turning. i unclogged everything....now the suction works great. However, the bar still wont turn.

Again, I have a Bissel Model 3760-4. The same problem as everyone else. The beater bar will not turn. Took apart, nothing. Took to vacuum repair shop and they said it is not getting power to the motor to the beater bar. Seems like a fair number of folks are having this same issue. You would think Bissell would come up with a fix, if nothing else to save their reputation. Thanks Diane

I bought a used vacuum seal machine (hobart model ht-120) it does excellent vacuum but it doesnt seal correctly all the time. it seems like there is something wrong with the valve that activates the bar that goes up and makes pressure and heats the bag for complete sealing. The heating is perfect but what is not working is what make the bar go up and down.
I have a central vac. and the beater bar, for the carpet is not turning. the vacuum still sucks but the beater bar doesn't turn. I checked the belt it is fine.

My beater bar does not work on my vacuum. The problem is not in the hose or the attachment, because I connected to another electrolux vacuum and it worked. So the problem must be in the canister.
It's most likely a loose wire in the canister then. I recommend taking the whole vacuum to an Aerus Electrolux store and letting the service tech check it out. They can find out the problem quickly.\015\012Be aware they may try to sell you a ... Electrolux UltraLux 2000 Bagged Canister Vacuum
