Call the Dyson Helpline, if your machine is still under warranty they will send you a new belt. You can call them again once you've received the new belt and they'll also tell you how to remove the old belt and put the new one in. I could explain how to do it now but it is best if you get the belt first :)

Belt not moving how do you check it


The belt should be replaced yearly so if you haven't changed it recently, I would. You might find that the belt is still intact, but that doesn't necessarily mean that the belt is okay. Even though the belt is intact it can still be stretched and if it is it will slip and not turn the brush properly. To access the belt turn the machine over and remove the (3) screws over the roller brush cover. There is also a clutch belt that should be replaced periodically, you should check that too. Here is the belts you need:

CHANGE BELT ON DYSON ANIMAL


Try this link which is a YouTube video on replacing the clutch assembly. It is more extensive than what you need but does cover the steps you will take to change the belt. Here is the link:

The belt removal tool is not absolutely necessary and a screw driver will work but it does make the job a LOT easier. The belt removal tool can be purchased on eBay for about $15. I'm cheap so I made my own removal tool that works wonderfully.

Hope this helps.

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.
