Customer Question

What causes the brush not to turn on my dyson cinetic big ball vacume?

I have taken the front assembly off and cleaned it, removed all hair and dirt. It seems to have good suction, but it is only in the hose. I have only had it just a little over a year.

Usually the brush stops turning because the belt has broken or fallen off .

On some models the drive gears can strip leaving the belt in place

I will be right back

When a brush falls off you can often smell it and it is usually damaged in the process

When one tears up it falls completely off and you kay not notice it is missing

The clutch area
Expert:  Machinc replied 14 days ago.
You will most likely need your model number to order a new one
Expert:  Machinc replied 14 days ago.
The clutch could be bad but it is more likely a belt since your unit is only one year old
Expert:  Machinc replied 14 days ago.
The hose will still have good suction . The belt and clutch only controls the rotation of the brush
Expert:  Machinc replied 14 days ago.
NOTE : there is a small on off button ( usually grey on front) that controls the beater bar ( brush) . This may have been accidentaly turned off .

This is a link to just a sample of belts .
Expert:  Machinc replied 14 days ago.
There are clutch and non clutch models . You will need your model number if you determine a belt is broken or missing
Expert:  Machinc replied 14 days ago.
The clutch is close to the beater
( brush ) and takes more than one belt.Dyson reccomends professional servicing if none of the above
corrects the problem.
