.(2) Remove the brush assembly by pulling/unlatching it from base on each side.

.First let’s try one more time to clear out anything that might be caught inside. For this disassemble the green brush cage unit, partially, from the blue box. This would expose the cover of the gear box. On the left side, with the white nylon holes in which the square ends of the brushes plug. Remove the cover of the gear box with a tiny Philips screw driver might be there are 6 screws. Inside you would see two Golden Retrievers. Once, cleaned meticulously, the Roomba will be back. If this does not resolve the issue then probably needs this part

I have several times:
removed the brush and replaced it OK.
pushed the red button by the brush.
pressed the brush power switch.
.Next turn the dyson dc04 vacuum cleaner upside down and remove the base plate this is done with a large flatblade screwdriver.
.The next step is the brush – you should be able to access the drive shaft and pull the belt off which will free the roller.
.Unclip the small hose which goes from soleplate to the back of vacuum and remove the soleplate itself you will need to apply very firm pressure and only pull each side out a little way because if you go too far you will crack the guide.
.Next is to remove the housing that holds the whole brush assembly. You will see on either side of the vacuum 1 plastic washer (like a circle with a bit taken out) which has to be removed. Once both are off you can gently slip off the body over the shaft that the washers held the body on to. This removes the the body part that moves up and down to adjust your dyson to different height carpets.
.Now you should have basically a “nude’ dyson
.Next step is to remove the 8 torx screws that are spaced around the motor housing. The plastic outer will now come away revealing the last bit of motor casing.
.There is a cover plate that is held in by 4 lugs that can be gently pried back with a small screwdriver and the lid will come off like a tupperware container.
.From here your on the home straight.
.The motor now needs to be pushed out of its little case. The large rubber gasket will make this quite hard as it it designed to hold the motor in but with a fair bit of pressure it will slide out.
.With the motor out it should be easy access to the carbon brushes they will simply screw off allowing new ones to be screwed back on.
.Reversing the process is as simple (after youve done a few) as reversing the instructions and keep in your mind if you have to apply a lot of force it is likely that something is not lined up properly.

..Once they release, turn the vacuum over and lift cover of power nozzle at the back. This pulls the front of the cover out of the lip on the “bumper”.
.Once this is done, you’ll need to unscrew the screw at each end of the brush. Lift the brush out and thoroughly clean it, including the ends.
.Check the wiring to make sure they’re connected to the terminals of the motor. Also, check the belt for wear and tear. These belts can last for five years or more, but if it looks bad a good time to replace it is while you have the power head apart.
.When reassembling the vacuum, ensure the belt is fitted properly around the motor shaft and brush.
.Insert the front of the cover first, ensuring the edge fits neatly beneath the lip on the bumper all the way around. It takes a little manipulating to press the back into place. Make sure both tabs click into the locked position. Turn the vacuum over and reinstall screws. Try to rotate brush by hand a few times.
.At this point, plug the vacuum in and turn it on. If the power head doesn’t run, press the reset button. If the power head motor still doesn’t run, it could be due to loose or disconnected wires that lead to the reset switch, a bad reset switch, or even a bad motor. The vacuum needs to be taken to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store for further diagnosis and repair.
