Hi, I'm Matt from eSpares.
Now if the brush roll is not turning on your Dyson DC07, it's almost certainly because the belt has snapped or come off the motor. Either way, it's going to be best to replace the belt, and I'm going to show you exactly how to do that.
Safety first: now, do make sure you're not plugged in at the mains.
I'm going to start, just by taking the cyclone and bin assembly off, and I'm also going to take the post-motor filter off. Only reason I'm doing that is that it gives me a nice, stable cleaner to work on.
Now, you just need to take off this soleplate, see these three screws here - just use a coin, and turn those through 90 degrees, and that pops off. So here you can see the belt, this one's actually a little bit slack, so it would be quite good to replace it anyway. What I'm going to do is - if you can see there - I'm just going to slide that off the motor spindle, there we go, and if I pull the brush roll out, the belt comes out.
I'm going to get my new belt. Now this is going to be a little bit of a tighter fit than the old one because obviously it's not been stretched at all. Just feed that back through, make sure that you've got the brush roll sat tightly in place. This can be a little bit awkward, but just pull that as tight as you can, and get it over the spindle end.
Then just turn the brush roll a few times and make sure that you've got that nicely in line, yeah that's good. Then I'll pop the soleplate back, and just turn those screws back again to lock the soleplate in position. There we go, easy as that, that's a new belt fitted on a DC07.
Thanks for watching.
