Question about Shark Vacuums
Cleaned all the hair off the bristles. The brush will only freely move occasioanally It is a Shark Navigator Professional
It may need a new belt, or, if you can detach the whole brush, there may be debris in the joints where the brush is able to turn at. Sometimes that area hides hair, strings and other debris, that will cause your vacuum to NOT work at its peak! Check that first, before buying a new belt, just in case you can save yourself some money.

If your Dc14 is all floors it will have A clutch fitted this is easy to determine just stand in front of your machine look down at the left hand side there will be a coloured knob on the side e.g. blue.yellow,green,purple this will have a pointer on it which when you pull handle back to vacuum must move to drive position you can rotate it by hand if it is stuck in park position ,
If there is no belts broken the brushes will now turn.
If they don’t the chances are one of the 2 belts have snapped.
You will then need Manuals to help you repair the problem.

SOURCE: brushes not going round
The brushes on my dyson have stopped going round. I have checked it and they move freely by hand. The belt is intact. What could the problem be? The Hoover is about 10 to 12 years old.
My dyson is a dc04
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
One of the main problems with vacuums are that the flat belts on the vacuums stretch and should be changed every 4 to 6 months or 3 or 4 times a year – you can tell by taking off the belt or belts on the vacuums and compare them to the old belts on the vacuum the new belts will fix inside of the old belts and you will be able to see the difference on how much they have stretched – if the belt is a geared belt – they stretch as well but should be changed about one a year – the cost is not that expensive and you cleaning will improve almost double – this also applies for the Dyson DC04 and the Hoover vacuum as well – some of the Hoover vacuums have two (2) belts and they both should be changed @ the same time.

Well dummy me. I called Dyson. There is an on/off switch RIGHT NEXT TO THE MAIN ON OFF for JUST the beater bar. Itis not highlighted in the manual and I never even looked at the front of the machine! Pressing did reactivate beater bar after the auto shut off caused by the sock! HOWEVER I am keeping the more complicated clutch instructions, just in case. Thanks!

What I tried and it worked for me is to losen the hose slightly from where it connects to the long plastic tube on the side to allow the little hole to show. What that does is to lessen the suction power a little since the problem is that the suction is too powerful on the carpet and the roller freezes.

I'm not sure it has one. Check the owner's manual though.
Try this. Turn off vacuum. Unplug it. Make sure there are no clogs in main hose, power head intake tube, or intake inside tank. Plug it in, turn it on, and let us know what happens.
