DC07s have two belts - one connects the output of the motor to the clutch, the other connects the clutch to the brush bar.
I suspect the belt you are to refering to is the one from the bar to the brush. Unfortuenately the other belt is hidden under a plastic cover, so you cant see if it is okay or not without some dismantling. This cover is not easy to remove and requires a Torx driver to under the securing screws.
If, after removing the cover, the other belt is okay, then you have a faulty clutch. New clutches are available on eBay reasonably cheaply, but again good tools and DIY skills are required.
Have a look at www.dysonmedic.com which has some excellent info on dismantling and repairing your machine, but unless you have access to such tools, and feel confident to tackle it, it's probably time to call Dyson or a Vacuum repairer.

Broken belt dyson Dc41


Belt was broken, so I had to go inside the motor assembly -- torx screws all the way. The problem is finding a replacement belt without buying a whole new power drive.

Roller not spinning


Possible belt broken. If you smell an odor like burning rubber it could be the belt that turns the roller if not the belt could be broken already.Possible string or something else wrapped around roller. If you have animals in home they shed and the hair or fur gets wrapped around roller and it will stop the roller.

BRUSH WILL NOT TURN


Remove any fibers (hair, carpet thread, etc.) or other trash wound up around the brush bushings. If necessary, disassemble and clean the bushings. This alone may not repair the problem, it is only the cause. After that, check the belt for bad spots - a stalled brush often causes the belt to wear heavily in one spot or break. Replace as needed.

Brushes stopped rotating


Needs a new drive belt. Find the screws holding the bottom panel onto the floor section of the vac. take out those screws and you should see the motor and the brushes and a broken belt underneath the panel. Check that the brushes spin freely. If not you may have something like hair or string or something jamming the brush. If so cut out the obstruction and then rotate the brushes again and look to see if they rotate evenly, without wobbling because in some vacs if the brushes become jammed and run like that for a while sometimes it wears out the bearings or bushings holding the brush in place and if they are worn you need to replace those as well or when you replace the belt and run the vac it wont take long to break the belt again.

DYSON DC14 While vacuuming the living room, the rotating brush started making an awful loud grinding sound. We opened the intake port, cleaned the brush but to no avail sound still persists once you lower...


Take the bottom plate off and check the belt. Also, rotate the brush by hand - it should turn with only a moderate resistance from the belt, or very little if you take the belt off. If it is hard to turn, or if the belt is stripped-out right where it goes around the roller pulley, one of the roller bushings is stuck. In that case you'll have to remove the roller and clean or replace the roller and bushings.

It's possible that the problem is actually in the blower, but most of the time a roller bushing or a foreign object caught under the roller is the culprit.

That means that the belt is broken, stretched or worn. You need to change the belt. You can get replacements here:

Your belt is either stretched or the wrong size or the brush bushings are worn and allowing the brush to wobble or the motor is loose in its housing. You need to check all.
Rotate the brush and try to wobble it from the pulley end.
Flip the belt inside out, it if appears cupped, cracked or shiney and slips easily on and off the brush it is stretched. Generally this unit needs anew belt evrey 6 months, broken or not, they get hot and stretch. Do not buy a new belt by matching size, a worn belt can be 20-30% oversized and not broken but totally useless.
The motor shaft should be cleaned with W/D 600 grit sand paper. Motor should have no wobble in the shaft

Bottom roller bush does not spin


Sounds as if the v-belt came off the idler arm or you broke the v-belt. Either way, take the 4 screws out of the plate around the roller brush and make certain the belt is there and that it sits on the idler wheel. If you remove the roller brush you'll see the wheel. Pay attention to how the ends of the roller brush go back into the vacuum when inserting it and put the plate back on. Also check the thicker main belt is in place as well, it's to the left of the v-belt.

Also, the roller brush should stop when you put it in the upright position. Next time just stand it upright so the throw rug doesn't get drawn quite so far into the vacuum.
