Having problems with your Dyson DC18 all floors Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?

Dyson DC18 brush beater bar intermittent failure problem.

\015 The brush won't turn, but it's not a failed belt. I've also pressed the 'reset' button on the 'bar head' (down by the floor) and pressed the 'brush' on/off switch multiple times.\302\240\015\012\015\012It seems there is an electrical connection failing.\302\240\015\012\015\012Also, when it was first a problem, it came back on while pushing the unit across the carpet (as normal operation) after moving it a few feet - like a rolling jump start. Almost like an electric motor with a bad/old motor.\015\012\015\012Then after stopping (putting it 'upright and locked') and using it some more, it wouldn't come on at all.\302\240\015\012\015\012The unit is not even a year old - any ideas? Particularly electrical, or not 'belt-related'?\015

Answers :

Take it in to be serviced. It could be a dead motor to bad connection. 5yr warranty will leave you paying nothing. Best Buy or local authorized service center can do it.
I'm having this same problem. It doesn't sound like the motor is spinning until it kicks on from the push start. I think this is the motor or a connection (more likely the motor because the push starting works).\015\012
\015\012We've been looking at the replacement power heads. They're expensive ($130). I could replace the motor myself. We'll have to try the warranty approach - we bought it through a discounter though... I don't think we have warranty service with it.

My dyson C07 ANIMAL is making a loud clatter noise when I push the head down. I have removed the sole plate and the brush bar is cracked so I removed it, but I understand the clutch maybe a problem also from reading other people's comments..how can I tell if it's a clutch problem also? Or... could it be just the brush bar being cracked that's causing the loud noise?

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

Placing the handle of my Dyson DC07 into its upright and locked position causes the beater bar to stop turning. It will not start turning until the handle is first lowered to the working position and the Carpet/Bare knob is moved to the Bare Floor position and then back to the Carpet position. Then the beater bar turns until the handle is placed into the upright position. What might be the problem?

My Dyson DC 24's beater bar switch didn't actuate and the beater bar didn't turn. When I brought it to a certified serviceman he told me that a wire interferred with the switch and all he had to do was move the wire out of the way of the switch. At the time the machine was under warrantee and it didn't cost me anything. Now however, the machine is out of warrantee and the problem has returned. Does anyone know how to access the switch and move the wire out of the way?

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.

This has happened before when it was under warranty and I was told to remove caps and clean frequently.I am afraid prying them off will break the vacuum.It also has very low suction and I have cleaned the filters and the belt is fine.Will cleaning the inside of the beater bar fix my problem?
