Having problems with your Dyson Vacuums ?
Not picking up and the brush does not move
\015 Very little suction and the brush isn't turning\015
Check to make sure that the knob for carpet/ bare floor has not slipped, the brushroll will only turn when carpet is selected. The most likely culprit is a stretched belt on your clutch assembly; you have one tor the brushroll and one to the motor. These belts will stretch out though Dyson will not tell you this. Best remedy is to replace the clutch assembly with OEM # 900252-04. Dyson will sell the Brusholl belt but I suggest shopping arround to find someone willing to pull the clutch apart; to my knowlege Dyson will NOT sell the motor belt.

I was vacuuming my room and all of a sudden I hear this loud noise, then notice the roller brush isn't spinning. Thinking too much hair was caught I separated it from the rod and hose to clean it out, but noticed that the roller brush didn't move at all while I was cleaning it. I've cleaned the brush before and it would roll around with little effort, but this time I couldn't move it at all. After removing hair and string I put the vacuum back together and started it up, but the noise continued,

My Dyson Animal has good suction and works fine for actually picking up dirt, but when I use the vacuum with the roller, I hear a grinding/rumbling noise. Its only when I use the vacuum with the brush rotating. It does not happen hen I shut the roller brush off. The belt is fine. I cannot figure out what is wrong as there are no clogs, debris, or foreign objects stuck in the brush or in the belt. The noise seems to be the only issue. The vacuum picks up fine. It just doesn't sound right a

My Kirby Heritage II vacuum is not picking up dirt up out of the carpet like usual, and I have to keep setting it lower to pick anything up. I finally get it to such a low setting that it starts sucking the carpet up and makes a whirring noise, and starts smelling. Every time this happens, we find the belt has been burned. We are wondering if the brush roll inside with the brushes that pick up dirt are worn out and too short?
