Having problems with your Dyson "Stowaway" Canister Vacuum Vacuum ?

When i turn on the brush for rugs it turns off immediately on its own

Answers :

K.. This is for the dyson stowaway.. Does your power head keep shutting off with no reason, and you have to keep pushing that button...??? K first stop jamming the button angrily.. Lol. Second you have to take the power head BOTTOM OFF.. All of it. Brush head plate too, there is a hidden screw under it. Now with it upside down facing you. You will see on the left hand side, the wires and wire switch where the power head button is.. There is a small black piece you need to pull up but not out , leave the wires attached, now for the fun part, there are 2 connecting wires for the switch box that probably have not been saudered properly. So get a sauder thing and touch it to the connecters, you don't have one????? Well a really hot butter knife will do it , but I so don't recommend that!! Hopefully that fixed it..
Check if the brush is clogged up.

My Rainbow SE vacuum was working fine until I ran over the edge of a rug and it went in to the nozzle. I immediately switched the vacuum off and proceeded to move the rug. When I tried to turn the Rainbow back on the brush was no longer spinning. I've tried the reset button and checking the nozzle for any debris, there are none. The brush just won't spin.
