Beater Related Problems

Beaters are usually part of an appliance such as a mixer where it is used to mix dough and blend batter. They are handles which are inserted into an enclosure covered motor unit which drives these beaters to operate when immersed into the food. A beater can also be a component of a vacuum cleaner in the form of a beater brush or roll used to mainly clean carpeted surfaces. Read below where Experts have answered some commonly asked questions regarding beaters.

How would an individual fix a Dyson upright beater that makes a loud noise when the beater bar is turned on?

This is a case of the motor malfunctioning or becoming defective. It will need to be removed and replaced. If this unit is under five years, you could get the coverage from warranty. A good option would be to contact the Dyson customer care on their toll free number for more information and availability of parts.

Why is the beater brush on a Dyson carpet cleaner not removing lint, though the individual has cleaned it and it has used the suction?

It should be noted that the brush roller or beater brush is meant mainly to be used on a carpeted surface. If you are using it on a hard surface or floor, it needs to be set down to the lowest setting. Next check if the brush roller is turning by leaving the unit on and pulling the handle up. It could be slipping or there could be no movement on the carpet. While vacuuming if you ensure, the settings are accurate for the type of surface used, the beater brush should work.

On a kitchen appliance, what is the flat beater used for and the wire whip used for?

The flat beater which usually has slots in them is generally used to make stiffer batter or dough meant for pancakes, cake mixes and so on. The wire whip is usually used for mixing less dense and lighter elements such as egg whites and whipped cream. They may not be suitable to mix dry ingredients or dense liquids.

Why is a Dyson beater brush not turning though the belt and the suction is fine?

Sometimes you can have carpet fibers, other strong fibers or hair which can get entangled around the beater bar as well as caught within the brush holder. This can cause the component to stall and freeze up. You could try using a sharp knife to cut and remove the fibers from where they are caught in the brush. This should help in resolving the issue.

Why does a Dyson vacuum’s beater bar remain stationary with no suction?

You need to re-check the suction properly. If you are experiencing good suction at the end of the hose but not from underneath it could be blocked at the point where you insert the hose in and down at the brush. You should take off the base plate, remove the brush and look for blockages here. Since the belt turns the brush, ensure the belt is not stretched or broken causing the problem.

In most cases, beaters are usually a part of a bigger unit or appliance. They have a specific function to perform in the appliance they are installed in. Other components too if affected can influence the functioning of the appliance. To determine the issue lies with the beater will need some trial and elimination tactics. To help you do that and arrive at a reasonable solution regarding any beater problems you may be facing, Experts help, information and guidance can be useful.

  • The beaters seem to hit the bowl when beating (not hard, but

    The beaters seem to hit the bowl when beating (not hard, but there is the sound of the beater hitting the side of the bowl) in my kitchenaid stand mixer. That seems strange to me and it doesn't seem to get the material on the bottom of the bowl thoroughly mixed. I tried my tried and true divinity recipe today and that was not successful! Is it the fault of the raising the bowl to the beater rather than lowering the beater into the bowl? Is this normal?
