Hi umanski... release the hoover as though you were to use it normally... please turn the hoover upside down.. it should be lying flat to the floor now.... being careful that you dont have your fingers or anything else in the way... switch the hoover on.... is the brush roller spinning?

If not it is your brush belt has gone and needs replacing, which is fairly straightforward. Expect to pay approx £4-7 for genuine dyson belts (2).. though you can get generic copies for about £2.

Does this solve your prob, if not let me know.

regards Faggly

The vacuum makes an odd noise and is not picking up very well.

Hi there,

Sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC14 Animal. If the cleaner doesn't seem to be picking up as well as usual, you may have a blockage in machine. The odd noise you describe may be the ratcheting sound the brush control system is designed to make to warn you that the brushbar is jammed.

The easiest way to check for and remove obstructions from the brushbar and airways is to follow the troubleshooting steps shown in our online support guide:

This should help you identify and resolve your issue. However, if you've run through these checks and are still concerned, please get in touch with us directly so one of our experts can provide further assistance. You can call us free on 08002980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Kind regards,

Loud noise??

I have the exact same problem. I've taken the thing apart and cannot figure out what is causing the noise. It's not the belt and it doesn't seem to be coming from the engine. It sounds like the spinning brush is hitting something, but it's not, that I can see.

Loud noise

When the motor bearings start to go bad, they will make a loud noise. Some motors if a piece broke off of the fan, then it also will make a loud noise. You may have to replace the motor.
