Sounds like the beater bar is frozen in place. This sometimes happens when the ends of the bar become stuck in the holders. The solution is to remove the beater bar and clean the small holders on each end removing any debris that has built up. Spray with a little WD40 and then manually rotate the beater brush around the holders until it is free, then replace. Be sure the belt is installed properly.

Fault finding


Have you accidentally switched off the beater bar via the dial on the head? Some models have a 'hard floors' and a 'carpets' setting (which disengages/engages the beater bar).

Beater bar wont spin


hello rud.... this is due to either a broken belt or lots of carpet fibers or pet fur in the beater bar mechanism. turn it off, unplug it and then turn it on it's side and check to see if the bar turns freely by hand. if it does, you will have to replace the belt assembly.... most dyson's have the belt built in to a plastic housing forcing you to buy a pricey part.

My beater brush will not spin. i cleaned it all off, but it will not turn when i turn the vacuum on


1. if you are smelling burnt rubber and hearing a loud squealing then your belt is tight but something is binding up the beater bar, more than likely if that is the case you need to take out the bar and see if the ends are packed up with carpet fibers, on the otherhand if the bar isn't moving and no smell or sound is present then more than likely your belt has slipped off the impeller shaft and all you have to do is pull it back onto the shaft, or the belt has snapped and you need to replace it

Replace belt and dyson vacuam cleaner, model dc14 I ordered a new belt and brush replacement assembly and we can't seem to understand how to get it apart to change it


If the DC14 has a brush protected aspect i.e. a switch on the front that puts the drive belt off, the drive belt would have to be replaced by a professional repairer as this can't be done at home.
If the model doesn't have the brush control at the front, flip the Dyson over so that the beater bar is in the air and locate three/four screws that can be taken out with a coin or blunt knife. A turn is all that is required on those notches and the sole plate should come off once these notches have been undone. Then check the belt - if it has broken lift out the beater bar in the middle with your hand and replace the sections necessary. Be careful to check that the end caps are pushed in properly otherwise the beater bar will not sit correctly.
