Question about Vacuums
Get a different brand vacuum. Dyson's are easily the worst vacuum I've ever owned. I've tried the DC14, DC25 and DC33 they are all heavy plastic POS's made in Malaysia. I've owned every kind of vacuum under the sun. Rainbow, Kirby, Oreck, Riccar, Sebo, Miele. Dyson was EASILY the worst. I'd say a Hoover or Bissell or the Dyson knock off the Shark, is a better purchase than a Dyson. I'm amazed @ what people will buy these days. Dyson is the only company that flat out lies in their claims. If you return your vacuum for service while under warranty, you pay the shipping and they send you back a refurb. RIDICULOUS. Dyson used to be a good vacuum before outsourcing their production to Malaysia. Now they're terrible, heavy, useless pieces of ****.

With handle pulled back as if cleaning the floor does the brush spin when you turn machine on ?
If no then you have snapped the drive belt,
Unplug machine from electricity supply then undo the 3 plastic screws under machine to the unlock position.
Lift off the sole plate this covers the brush roller you should now be able to see if the drive belt has snapped & replace it.
If the drive belt is intact still change it as it will be stretched & burnt.
If the drive belt looks ok but it dissapears in to the casing & you cant see what it connects to then your machine has A clutch this is more difficult to sort out you will need A manual they are available from here http://dysonmanuals.llc.nu/
