Introduction

If your Dyson V8 Animal’s brushbar fails to sweep up dirt or dust, use this guide to replace the brushbar. The brushbar sweeps up dust or junk by rotating its bristles when the vacuum is powered on. A broken or faulty brushbar will fail to rotate or sufficiently sweep up dust.

Before using this guide, inspect the brushbar to make sure it is not just jammed or tangled. Simply untangling the brushbar will sometimes fix the issue.

No special skills are required for this guide.

Before beginning, make sure to turn off the vacuum and disconnect it from any external power source.
