Question about Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
The brush won't spin on my dyson DC14 animal (purple one) I'm pretty sure the brush is installed correctly (I've cleaned and re-installed many times over the years) but have tried switching between carpet and bare floor 10 times (as instructed on website) and still can't get the brush to spin

Check the belts, it sound like you have a broken belt or a belt you didn't not reconnect

SOURCE: Dyson DC14 Brush Bar won't turn
You don't need to take it for repairs, I just corrected the same problem on the phone with a tech. Have the head on your lap, make sure the end nearest the little belt has the rounded side of the bar facing you. The squared off end faces towards the machine. Place your left hand pointy finger under the bar (the 2 inch bar next to the little belt) and lift up, while finessing the loose end of the bar into place, with the rounded part still facing you. Then it sort of snaps into place. Now, replace the face plate. In the upright mode, starting at the carpet dial, switch the dial back and forth between carpet and bare floor, ten times. (the tech actually referred to this as re-setting the vac. LOL) Plug the vac in, incline the hand, and start. It should work. It didn't for me the first time and made a horrible sound. That meant I had to go and repeat the process again, but lo and behold, IT WORKED! When in doubt, call the tech and don't let them get away from you; have them stay on the line until the problem is resolved.
