    You cannot simply remove the brush roll and belt as the belt is attached to the clutch assembly.

If your Dyson is more than 3 years old and the drive belt is still attached to your brush roll, The most likely cause is a stretched belt slipping on the clutch. your brush roll encounters friction on the carpet and if there is not sufficient tension in the drive belts, you have 2 of them, then they will slip and you cannot pick up debri as the vacuum was designed. You have a few options, call the Dyson help line located on your vacuum via a sticker behind your hose; explain to them the problem with the brush roll not turning sufficiently. There are also replacement belts available for your model at a cost of around $10 depending on your area, but you have to take the clutch assembly apart to install the new belts. Lastly you can buy a new clutch assembly for about $70 but this is a last resort idea. Any reputable service center should be able to replace a clutch in 5 min. and rebuild one in less than 20 min.
Hope this helps.

Fault finding


Have you accidentally switched off the beater bar via the dial on the head? Some models have a 'hard floors' and a 'carpets' setting (which disengages/engages the beater bar).

Hello. i only have one arm and am trying to figure out why my beater bar wont turn on my dyson dc14. the belt smells a little too. thanx, trixie


Sounds like the beater bar is frozen in place. This sometimes happens when the ends of the bar become stuck in the holders. The solution is to remove the beater bar and clean the small holders on each end removing any debris that has built up. Spray with a little WD40 and then manually rotate the beater brush around the holders until it is free, then replace. Be sure the belt is installed properly.

Hi its Darran at Dyson.

Check that the brush control dial is in the centre position when the machine is locked upright. When you release the head and pull the handle back this dial should mopve forward to the on position. Once here, the brush bar should turn.

If this doesnt resolve the problem, please contact our Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Kind regards

Have a look at www.dysonmedic.com which has some very useful info on dismantling and repairing Dysons.

Although this site doesnt actually cover the DC14 yet, the DC14 is very similar to the DC07 so as regards dissassembling the machine, and replacing the clutch, my experience is that the DC07 info will enable you to do the job.

Dyson DC14 Animal belt clutch slips.


The clutch problem needs to be looked at by a serviceman or professional who can repair Dysons. Slipping belts are often a sign of being overused or with carpet/textures that have caused the beater bar extra tension. I suggest if this model means much to you to get it repaired.
