Replacing clutch drive belt dyson dc14 - Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

    Once in a while when vacuuming, my Dyson will grab onto something it is not supposed to "swallow" such as the end of a curtain or a sock. It makes a terrible "I'm chokeing" noise so the first instinct is to grab the wayward item and yank it out of the roller brush area. I have found that this action causes the brush roller to stop spinning.

    This has happened so many times I can't even count. I usualy just pop the vacuum into the car and bring it to BEST BUY, where I purchased it, let the Geek Squad keep it for about two weeks and I get it back in ACE #1 shape. This does not cost me anything at all except the experience of being without my vacuum for two weeks.

    The Geek Squad says, "Something goes wrong in the clutch each time you pull an item out of the brush."

    Does anyone know how to fix this problem at home instead of being with the vacuum for two weeks?

SOURCE: 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.

Can’t replace a belt to a dyson dc14 all surfaces.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. You need to remove the bottom plate of the vacuum and then lift up the pulley side of the brushroll and then take off the old belt and install the new belt the replace the brushroll. Then take a belt puller or a screwdriver with a bend on the end and pull the belt onto the motor pulley and then track the belt in a straight line. If you have a problem with the belt change then refer to your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

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.

SOURCE: how to change the drive belt on a dyson dc14

Hi there,

There are 2 belts on a Dyson DC14 if the Dyson has a clutch. If it has a clutch you have a knob on the machine that turns the brushbar on and off. Most of the DC14s have this.

You are far better replacing the whole clutch and its not really too har a job to do.

My roller bar wont spin the belt is on though


even though the belt is on and intact it still can be stretched and worn. If that is the case it won't be able to turn against the resistance of the carpet. Your particular model has (2) belts, a clutch belt and a drive belt. Both should be replaced yearly. You can get them here:

Dyson Refuses to Honor Warranty


Hi. I have been repairing Dyson machines since they first came out. DO NOT PAY FOR A NEW CLUTCH. I can assure you that both clutch belts can be replaced. Its A tricky job & can take some time to do. Its more cost effective for a shop to fit a new clutch at your expense $150 Clutch Belts are readily available in the UK you can purchase belts from numerouse sites for approx $10 postage to states $3 to $5 saving you a small fortune. If you want to know how to fit the 2 belts I can sell you A manual for approx $11 Or contact me at dyson@gawab.com for more information.
