Beater bar stopped after sucking up shoe lace


Answers :

Hi choward40,

Yah, vacuums don't particularly care for shoelaces! :>)

Did you get the shoelace taken out of the beater brush?
Did the shoelace go all the way into the machine?

Please reply back. Thanks,

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.
