Hi.

Your Dc14 will have A clutch unit.
Check that when you pull back handle to vacuum that the clutch control knob which is located front lower left side of machine moves to drive position & is not stuck in off or park position.
Rotate it to drive if its at off or park when you have lowered handle.

If adter checking this you still have no brush rotation you will need to remove clutch unit to either replace thr belts or fit new clutch.

Why doesn't the brush roller rotate?


Hi, this is Jim with Crucial Vacuum,

The belt may not be broken, but it may be lacking in tension and therefore unable to rotate the brush roll on its own. You're going to want to replace your vacuums belt every 3 to 6 months depending on usage. Check to see if the belt is loose, or over stretched.

Check the brush roll as well and be sure its securely locked into place. It could be slightly loose causing a lack of communication between itself and the belt. Our video can help with fitting the belt in properly with the brush roll:

The panasonic EComax light rollers not turning , belt is fine. filters are fine.. and even with power on nothing happens. switch is on carpet mode.


"belt is fine" . Not likely. Belts need replacing yearly. Just because it isn't broken doesn't mean it's working properly. Most vacs should be serviced annually. Take it to your local vac shop for service.

Have a bissell easy vac 3130-B and the brush on the bottom stopped turning i never looked before so i don really know if it turned in the first place


Behind the brush will be a metal thing that spins when the vacuum runs. That's what the belt loops over with the other end around the brush. You can sometimes find the belts a places like wal mart.

There is power but the motor seems to not turn, therefore, there is no movement via the rollers. please help


The belt which turns the roller brush is probably worn and therefore not turning the roller brush. You can get a replacement here:

Belt replacement


No belt- it is motor driven. what happens to these if the rollers get stuck(by- say, a Lego® or something)  is the roller itself has an insert which will break, requiring roller replacement. 
simple fix, but costs a little more than a belt. remove two screws holding the roller cover, accessible by flipping the vac over. then figure out which roller is broken, and remove the 2 outer screws on that side. pull the outer bearing cup assembly straight out to remove the rollers.
I have found the rollers as cheap as $3.50 ea/ for generic replacements. Also I reckon any Vac shop would have them on hand.

New noise when vac is run


mine was allowing the roller/beater bar to hit the cover as it turned take the cover back off and ensure the beater is in the right place then that the cover is locked in the right place then you can spin it by hand (power cord unplugged of course) and make sure it is clearing everything. BTW, the belt has to be stretched to get the beater bar in place like on most vac.s

Kirby Vaccuum Cleaner:


likely a broken belt. turn vac over and see if roller turns free. if it does the belt is broken. turn the handle on front of vac. turn latch under headlight and remove head. open bottom plate and return handle to normal position. belt and brush roll will lift out. reverse procedure to install. directions are usually printed on the head of vac under headlight.

Bissell upright vac, brush on bottom does not rotate


The front brush motor will not engage until the power is turned on and the handle is in the down position. In the upright position the brush motor wont engage. Typical faults will be the belt is broken and needs replacing or the fornt brush motor needs replacing.
