Brush not turning


Check to make sure belt has not snapped by dismantling the bottom of the head , or looking round the beater bar on either left of right hand far side, or failing that the make sure the beater bar brush is clear of hair or other particles. Hope this helps.

After getting a tie caught and released, the blade will not spin. The belt is OK and there does not seem to be anything caught or holding it.


DC07s have two drive belts that turn the brush bar - one connects the output of the motor to the clutch, the other connects the clutch to the brush bar.
You can check the latter simply by removing the sole plate and looking. Unfortunately 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 a DC 07, 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


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 clutch to the brush bar. 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 eBay2_bing.gif reasonably cheaply, but again good tools and DIY skills are required.

I have a dyson root cyclone. i dismantled it to replace the belt, it is not the belt which is on the roller brush, it is the belt which is from the motor, it was easy to take out as it was broken, i will...


The belt that fits on the motor is the same belt that drives the roller brush, all you need do to gain access is remove the sole plate, normally attached with 3 quarter turn connectors, use large flat screwdriver to turn them

Belt OK but no drive to main brush head. How do you get into the motor compartment to have a look?


There are in fact two belts on a DC14 - one connects the motor to the clutch, the other the clutch to the brush bar.

Have a look at www.dysonmedic.com. It doesnt yet cover the DC14 BUT the DC07 is very, very similar and the info on dismantling a DC07 should get you to a point where you can check the other "hidden" belt.

If both belts are okay, and correctly located, it is most likely the clutch - not sure whether these are availabe but worth searching on eBay as lots of parts for Dyson are listed.

Good luck.

Do not turn on again. You have an obstruction in the fan . You will need to remove the motor from the lower housing, dismantle the fan cover and remove the obstruction, possibly replace the fan as well.
The lower housing plate can be removed revealing a set of clamps around the motor hosusing which will in tun release the motor from the base of the vac.

How to dismantle to replace brush drive belt


Check for cross head screws on top of the hood. Usually located either near the pedal release and then on the other side. Either that or flip the machine over and you should be able to locate screws on the underside that will remove the sole plate. Once that's done dont lose the screws - if either top or bottom is removed you should be able to access the drive belt.
