Hi... I had the bottom off the DC04 this morning so I could clead the roller.... when I put it back together all seems fine,,,that is til I move the foot control from laminate floor to carpet mode.......after a second or two its like something is rattling around......It's a helluva noise...... any ideas before it goes out of the window...

Thanks

It sounds like you have trapped the belt on the soleplate or the clutch is faulty?

The vacuum works fine on laminate.......but its a horrible noise when I move the clutch,,,,, also if im using the extension hose then all is fine and it sucks like a good un'

There are new clutch's on ebay for under 16 inc delivery....

when the handle is in the upright position the clutch is not engaged
when you lean back the clutch cuts in change the clutch it all says its gone

Yes, it sounds like the clutch to me as BB said above. The noise is a very loud ratchet type noise.
