Having problems with your Dyson Vacuums ?

Hair getting stuck in the belt drive area causing beater to skip

Answers :

Hair,string, tinsel, etc. have always been problems for rollers and belts. You will have to remove the hair. It can often get stuck at the ends of the rollers also and keep the roller from turning. I usually remove the roller and clean it using a screwdriver, knife, etc. to remove the hair. the cleaning can be done while the roller is still on the unit by turning the unit over although this may not offer as much free access to the roller. Of course, removing the roller means removing the belt and if you are not up to this (I don't know how handy you are), I would try to remove the hair with the roller on. If you do this, be careful not to put any nicks in the belt. Good luck!

Dog hair gets caught all the time in the belt drive spool, is there a fix for this other than having to pull it out all the time by hand? I have replaced the belt and the brush but this hasnt solved the problem and the belt moves so slowly and I get the loud whining/grinding noise too.

It could be either the clutch, the beater bar or the brush housing. I have included links to each parthttp://platinumvacuum.com/dyson-dc07-dc14-clutch-assembly-900252-04.htmlhttp://platinumvacuum.com/dyson-dc07-dc14-brushbar-assembly-9041 ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

I have an Electrolux Commercial Upright vacuum Model U129C. It has a device which turns off the motor driving the beater bar if something gets stuck in it. There is a simple reset button to restart the beater after clearing the obstruction. Just recently on flat dense low pile surfaces the switch cuts in after just a few seconds and turns the beater bar off. This doesn't happen on high pile carpet but the motor doesn't quite sound normal. There is no obstruction - the beater bar can spin freely

The motor is having a problem.There might be two reasons...either the coils inside it got heated up which will be needing rewinding or you can buy a new motor or there r capacitors attached sometimes u can make a check on that also if that's gone Kap ... Vacuums

Motor is sparking and smells like burning rubber. When it first happened I thought the vacuum had something jamming the beater bar. That was the smell it had, like when the belt gets burned. But when we turned it over, it wasn't jamming. Took off the base plate and turned it on. The motor area is sparking and it makes a weird noise (I assume that is because the motor fails and restarts). I looked for loose wires, can't find any. I believe I need some sort of part replaced, maybe even a n

Belts breaking/melting The original belt broke at almost 1 year so I replaced it. I changed the carpet setting to shag even though my carpet is very low pile to make it easier on the vacuum. I didn't get to use it but just a couple minutes and could already start smelling the new belt getting hot. I checked the roller and it is easy to spin. Not clogged with hair or dirt. Now the inside of the new belt has small pieces of rolled rubber instead of being smooth. The metal shaft that goes into the

Stuck Roller Same problem here. I think in our case, the accumulation of hair and the increasing resistance the hair created over time caused the hair to start melting, and eventually the end cap was stuck to the roller, which prevented the roller from turning. I cleaned out the melted hair(?) as best I could, but I think I need to order a new roller and end caps.

The Panasonic MC-V7515 has two belts. The local vacuum repair guy says he only has a part number for the drive belt, which is UB-9.
