Check to make sure the vacuum is switched to the correct mode. The switch should be in the Power and Brushroll mode to make the roller spin. If it is in just the power mode the roller will not move. The brushroll indicator light should be green when working.
Vacuum cleaners specifically designed to clean carpeted floors have motor or turbine driven revolving brush rolls with rows of bristles and sometimes beater bars as well. These brush rolls revolve at a very high speed, agitating the carpet fibers in the process.

.There is a switch next to the main power switch on the handle which turns the brushbar on and off. When the beater bar becomes obstructed as in your case, there is a safety feature which cuts power to the beater bar. All that needs to be done in most cases is to turn this switch off and back on again and the beater bar should resume operation.
.The beater bar on / off / reset switch is the yellow switch to the left of the main power button if you are standing in front of the hoover:
.Reset the beater bar and you should be back up and running.
.If you have already done this or it doesn’t solve your problem, please post back for further assistance.
.PLEASE NOTE: This reset method is for the Dyson DC17 ANIMAL as stated above. If you have a different version of the DC17, please post back for alternative instructions and state which version of DC17 you have.

I removed the plate that holds the cam in place (6 torx screws) to gain access to the rocker tabs, although in hind sight I could have probably just left it in place. It doesn’t matter how you set the cam back into place. It’s self aligning with the aid of the micro-switches inside.

There are two motor actions with this vacuum, 1) the vacuum suction, and 2) the beater bar. The action of the beater bar is that motor is supposed to automatically shut off when the handle is in the complete vertical position assuming the vacuum is stationary, but then turn on when the handle is tilted toward the floor, assuming the vacuum is moving back and forth.
The beater bar motor turn-on mechan
Normally when the motor is easily moved back and forth means that it have a proper lubrication,proper alignment and no clogs.
When the motor and the belt is OK the problem could be on electrical wiring and switch.
If found electrical switch burned out you need to replaced it because when the switch is burn the contact of that switch is open even you turn it ON.that’s why the motor is not function because the voltage is not pass through the circuit because of open switch.You need to replaced it.
And check some fuses if any and other burned electrical wire.Replaced it also.
