To reset the Brush bar press the Brush bar control button twice or switch the machine off and back on. Please note: In normal use, the Brush bar automatically turns off when the machine is upright and automatically turns on when the machine is in the vacuuming position.
Press the brush control button located next to the ON/OFF switch to turn the brushbar off for vacumming delicate rugs, looped carpets and hard floors. Press the button again to restart the brushbar for vacuuming carpets.
The brush bar on the cleaner heads of Dyson vacuums have carbon fibre bristles that removes the static attraction between fine dust and hard floors which allows the vacuum to then suck it up easily.
Brush Head Bearings Are Clogged or Have Failed
These are symptoms of bad or dirty bearings. You should remove the brush roll or rolls from the vacuum. Check to see that the bearings at the end of the brush roll allow it to spin freely. Make sure that there is no hair trapped in the bearings.
Dyson`s Mini motorhead is designed with a motorised brush bar that spins at up to 3500rpm to remove ground-in dirt but at just 144mm wide, the tool is perfect for removing stubborn dirt from mattresses, upholstery, stairs and other small spaces around your home and car.
Motorised brush bar, concentrated in a smaller head to remove stubborn dirt from mattresses, upholstery and stairs. Engineered to fit Dyson V15 Detect, Outsize™, V11™, Cyclone V10™, V8™ and V7™ vacuums.
If your vacuum`s brush bar is not turning, the bar may be clogged from hair and other debris. Ensure that the brushbar button, which is gray and located next to the power button, is turned on. If this is not the issue, then the brushbar itself may be damaged or stuck.
Reset the machine without the app
The machine allows you to clear your WiFi settings, restoring the machine to the factory default. Press and hold the `Standby ON/OFF` button on the purifier for longer than 20 seconds.

How do I install brushes on Hoover V2 Windtunnel? Does a right and left go on the right side and vice versa on the left side? That is how it orignally came? Or do I put both rights on the right and both lefts on the left? Thanks for your help and advice.
Both right with right left with left.
I have a 2 fluorescent light fixture in my bathroom. The right side light quit working. I took the starter out of the left side and put it in the right and it worked. Starter, right? I bought a package of 2 Leviton starters FS 2 15w. They didn’t work. Thinking bad, I returned it for another package. Still not working. The original starter is a Sylvania FS 2. Is it possible to have FOUR bad “new” starters? Do I need to replace it with the EXACT same starter? This light fixture is 38 years old. No
It is not likely that you had 4 bad starters.I assume you have more modern lights in it too(not 30 yrs old).Here is a link to Sylvania.It may be just that it requires certain something(who knows what)that only Sylvania has.It seems strange because they are all basically the same and a generic one seems like it would work.I also googled flourescent light starters and under one that talked about operation,it did refer to some older models.But like I said,it probably has newer lights so who knows what the heck.Well,here you go.You may also just want to call Sylvania and ask where you can find a replacement instead of paying $5 to ship $2 worth of parts.
.Good luck! Greg
The beater bar on my Dyson won’t turn. The vacuum runs and suctions but the bar won’t turn and the belt is not broke. The beater bar did get a carpet fiber caught and wrapped around it which stopped the bar and I removed the bar to cut the fiber loose and replaced it and now it won’t turn
The belt doesn’t have to be broken to make the vacuum not work correctly. If the belt is stretched the vacuum won’t operate the way it is supposed to. You can get replacement Dyson Belts here:

The beater bar motor doenst work when i push the bar button the bar button doesnt light up like power button how can i test bar motor or bar switch or what is the common problem wiyh this model I have 2 that dont work the same way
If it do not work …and you already are on the second one that behaved in the same way it may be a problem with the power in your place and the cause it may be the main fuse…Im not sure where is located in this model but it has to be near the power cord entry …Anyway ..to check the power flow you have to open it without breaking the power flow …and than plug int and push the start ..and with a power checker (screwdriver like that checks the presence of the electric power ) or a voltmeter ..or other measurement device …check the power flow from the entry to the motor…..this way you will see if the power is present …if all seam to be ok ..even at the contact point at the motor…it means that this is damaged …and for electric motors the usually damage are the coil magnetos …

Terrible noise My dyson was working great then started making this horrible noise. I cleaned the bar but noise is still there. I discovered the beater bar went around three passes then froze and started horrible noise again. my husband got the bar turning but after 2 swipes vacuuming it did it again. Can it be fixed or is it time to retire it and buy a new one. Wendy Kiser
That noise is the clutch. A very expensive part and very hard to replace. When a problem with the clutch happens it’s generally not worth the time and money to replace.
I suggest getting a different type of vacuum, maybe a Miele or Sebo. With the money spent on one of those vacuums, you wont have problems like you would with a Dyson. And the cleaning power is so much more powerful than what any Dyson can offer.
I had a shoelace get stuck in the beater bar. I turned it off, tipped it over and untangled the shoelace from the beater bar. When I plugged it back in the vacuum ran but the beater bar was not turning and there wasn’t any suction. Is there a reset switch for the beater bar? Thank you for your help, Janet
Hi Janet. there is a small reset button on the outside of the head next to the brush that you can push to get it to start spinning again.
Kirby Heritage II. Beater bar does not turn. One end rotates freely, but the other sticks, preventing the bar from rotating. No obvious means to disassemble the end of the bar. Is there a way to repair this, or does this require replacement of the beater bar? Did clean the front end assembly, and removed all hair, threads and similar obstructions.
The bearing is bad on the end that turns hard. You will need to purchase a new brush roll assembly. If the roller is older that 4 or 5 years, it should be changed anyway. The brush strips that scrub the carpet loose their strength after many years of combing through the carpet, so it’s a good idea to change it every 5 years or so.
