Have you also checked that the brush control knob is set to "carpet"? The brush will not spin in "bare floor" mode. (Sorry if this seems too obvious to mention, but I see lots of Dysons where incorrect setting of that knob is the only problem.) Failing that, you almost certainly need a new drive belt.

Has suction, but why isn't it picking up?


Good evening Amy

You can see the full manual for the DC14 here
https://www.dyson.com/medialibrary/Files/Dyson/Support/downloads/US/Floorcare/manuals/dc14_opmanual_usa2007%20pdf.pdf The troubleshooting section addresses this problem on several fronts, though the executive summary boils down to:
  1. Re-check that there aren't obstructions in the lines.
  2. Make sure that all of those bends and junctions are fully snapped into place (this has been the one that gets me the most with my DC-07 after I clean it)
  3. Make sure that the filters are clean, clean them if necessary, or replace them
  4. Since you mention replacing the brush. make sure the brush is snapped in flush with the soleplate. In my experience, the eccentric assemblies at the end of the brushbar holding it into the head are really easy to get mounted not-quite-right for alignment, leading to the soleplate not closing properly. Take another look to see if one or both of them are mis-aligned.
  5. make sure the vacuum is reclined. Full upright shifts suction to the handle for the accessories.
  6. Make sure that the accessory hose isn't clogged and doesn't have a hole in it. You'll want to stretch it out fully to check the walls for holes.

    I hope this helps!
    Good Luck

Why the Dyson dc 41 roller brush will not turn?


Try these steps:
  • Check the button that turns off the roller brush to make sure you didn't press it by accident.
  • Unplug the vacuum and clear pet hair and other debris off the roller brush. It may stop as a safety feature if the roller brush is too restricted.
  • Make sure the belt to the roller brush is placed correctly and not broken.
  • Press the roller brush reset button. It may be located on the side of the vacuum's head, or inside the handle. The switch may need to be replaced if it's defective.
  • The roller brush is disabled while the handle is in the upright position, so tilt the handle backwards while testing the roller brush.
I hope that helps you!

All belts are good but brush will not turn


Hi Nabil, it's Jack at Dyson.

If you have a DC14 and the brush bar isn't rotating, it's worth checking to make sure the brush control on the cleaner head is set to 'Carpets', and not 'Hard floors'.

http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc14/dc14-all-floors/my-machine-is-not-working/i-can-see-something-wrong-visual/i-can-see-something-wrong-visual/my-brushbar-is-not-rotating2/does-the-brushbar-turn-with-the-power-on

Tip: The brush bar will never rotate when the machine is standing upright, so make sure you recline it down into the normal vacuuming position before testing it.

If you're confident the brush control is set correctly, but the brush bar still won't rotate when the vacuum is reclined, please get in touch directly so we can help further. You can reach our experts by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), or 1-877-397-6622 (CA).

Best wishes,

The belt on my Dyson is making a terrible loud grinding sound after I removed the brush roller.


The sound is the clutch mechanism. That is a safety feature. It sounds like you have trapped the belt when you reinstalled it. If not, the brush roller bearings may be seized?
Take it apart again, spin the brush roller in your hand. Make sure it is free. When you reassemble it, before you refit the sole plate, turn the brush a few times with your fingers to make sure the belt finds its home on the roller. Only then refit the sole plate. Turn it again when fitted before you run it to make sure the brush is turning freely.
Then, make sure the clutch is engaged, see this article for more on clutches: DC14 clutch and brush roller

Hello,

This sounds like your roller brush has stopped spinning for some reason. Turn the machine upside down when set to carpeting, and make sure the handle of the vacuum is down, as if you were in the vacuum posistion, and not up like the handle is when you're storing it.

Is your brush roller spinning? If it's not, there are two kinds of agitator brushes on the Dyson DC14, each has it's own troubleshooting.

If your beater brush is perfectly rounded in shape, then you have the newer style Dyson DC14 that doesn't use a clutch mechanism. Either belt has broken, or falled off, and is causing the brush not spin. Here's instructions with a pictorial on how to fix this problem;

Step 1. Unplug the vacuum cleaner.

  • Lay the machine flat on the floor and turn it over so that the base can be viewed.
  • Use a coin to turn the three soleplate fasteners and remove the soleplate as shown.

  • Check the brushbar for blockages and ensure the brushbar is rotating freely by hand.
  • If a blockage is present, carefully use a pair of scissors to cut away any hair and fibres from the brushbar ensuring you do not cut any of the bristles on the brushbar.

If the roller brush still doesn't spin after checking and removing any obstructions, then you need to replace the belt (or clutch if you have the early models). Here's a video that explains how to replace the clutch mechanism on Dyson vacuums;

Dyson DC14 roller doesn't turn but everything else works. The belt is on correctly, the roller is clean and it turns manually so I can't figure out the problem.


The DC14 has a "brush control system" operated by a knob on the right side of the base. This knob has two positions: "bare floors" and "carpet". The roller will turn only when the knob is on "carpet", and even then only when the handle is tilted back (with the base still flat on the floor). The problem is that this system uses two belts, only one of which is easy to see. If you're sure that the control knob is in the correct position, and still the roller doesn't turn, then most likely the belt that you can't see is broken (that belt goes from the motor to the clutch mechanism behind the control knob).
Belt replacement on this model is not for the faint-hearted! To get an idea of what's involved, you can go to www.dysonmedic.com then scroll to the bottom of the page and click on "DC07 clutch replacement". It's a slightly different model, but the principle is the same. At least you will see how to remove the clutch cover so you can check on the other belt and confirm if this is the problem or not.
I value your feedback, so please remember to rate this response. Good luck!
