Question about Dyson DC14 All floors Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
I removed soleplate and cleaned off everything on bristles. Checked belt it is still in place. But brushbar is still not spinning I did tilt the handle backwards to get brushbar moving. The vaccuum is running but no movement.
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: Brushbar not spinning
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!

1. Plastic Burning Smell - This means that there is friction in a plastic part of your Dyson. The only place this will be coming from is the BrushBar. The brushbar has jammed somehow. The smell arises as the rubber belt is still trying to turn the plastic brushbar but the brushbar is not moving. To solve the problem you will need to unscrew the soleplate using a 2 pence piece, this is done by inserting the 2 pence piece into the 3 plastic screws on the underneath of the Dyson. Turn the screws a quarter anticlockwise. You can then remove the soleplate. You will probably see that there is a build up of debris by the brushbar. This is more common on The Animal version as pet hair mixed with dust gets stuck in here, especially if the machine has been used on a damp or wet surface. So clean this area out and then try manually rotating the brush bar in each direction. If you have been using the machine for too long with the burning smell then it is likely that your brushbar will be melted where the belt attaches to it. If this is the case then you will need to get a new brushbar. If the brushbar is not too damaged check that the belt has not broken. If the belt has not broken then replace the soleplate. Turn the screws a quarter in a clockwise direction. Should your belt be broken then please re-post and we will show you how to sort this. Thank you
