Question about Dyson DC14 All floors Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
How do i change belt
The guide suggest that you change the belt by putting it around the brush, through the plate, and then try to push it around the spindle, which has a space between it and the casing. I spent an hour trying to do this and couldn't get enough purchase to get the belt around the spindle. Instead I put it around the spindle first, and then through the plate, and then through a screwdriver to hold it in place. I then got the brush and put the band over the brush, rotating it until it went into the groove. I then reassembled. It worked, and I now realise how powerful that brush is. Hope it works.

You cannot change the belt you must change the whole clutch assembly. If you can get the part I will walk you through it over chat.

A DC 14 has two belts - one that connects the motor ourput to the clutch mechanism (the dial that lets you turn off the brush rotation completely is part of the clutch mechanism), and another that connects the clutch to the brush bar.
Unfortuneatley, the one that connects the motor to the clutch is hidden under a plastic cover so is very difficult to check.
With the machine running, and NOT in the upright position (i.e. as if you were vacuuming a floor), make sure the brush bar is actually rotating. If it isnt, you need to check both belts and the clutch. Due to the cover being held by three "Torx" screws, one of which is very difficult to get at, this isnt easy.
If the brush bar is rotating, then the burning is an indication the motor is about to fail. Motor replacement is possible depending how good your DIY skills are, and again you'll need "Torx" drivers to dismantle it. Website www.dysonmedic.com has some very good info.
