SOURCE: Dyson DC14 Animal belt clutch slips.

The clutch problem needs to be looked at by a serviceman or professional who can repair Dysons. Slipping belts are often a sign of being overused or with carpet/textures that have caused the beater bar extra tension. I suggest if this model means much to you to get it repaired.

SOURCE: How do you remove clutch out of DC14 ro replace

first remove bottom plate then remove the roller yea I know its a pain the front nozzle will come off if you pop it up with a screwdriver pull the suction hose it will come off. the knob is the worst there are two points were it clips on firmly pry the inside to pop it loose then the outside and yes I know you think its going to break I have done a couple hundred not one has broken on me. Remove the back U shaped duct. There are three screws in the clutch cover #15 torx screwdriver the back screw is accessed threw a hole in the housing. the clutch will come out with a firm tug. Remove the 2 screws #10 torx and pop the cover there is 2 parts that might come out a clutch pad and a metal ring / gear. If i were you i would replace both belts and yes I know Dyson says Its not possible to replace but you can just turn the clutch around remove the C clip and every thing will fall out a spring 2 bearings a washer 3 bb type bearings and a few rings. Its not that hard just reassable the same way. once you do one you can do 100 just take your time and let me know if you have trouble

Have a look at www.dysonmedic.com which has some very useful info on dismantling and repairing Dysons.

Although this site doesnt actually cover the DC14 yet, the DC14 is very similar to the DC07 so as regards dissassembling the machine, and replacing the clutch, my experience is that the DC07 info will enable you to do the job.

How to change the drive belt on a dyson dc14 allergy vacuum


Hi there,

There are 2 belts on a Dyson DC14 if the Dyson has a clutch. If it has a clutch you have a knob on the machine that turns the brushbar on and off. Most of the DC14s have this.

You are far better replacing the whole clutch and its not really too har a job to do.

Belt not turning


Hi.

Your Dc14 will have A clutch unit.
Check that when you pull back handle to vacuum that the clutch control knob which is located front lower left side of machine moves to drive position & is not stuck in off or park position.
Rotate it to drive if its at off or park when you have lowered handle.

If adter checking this you still have no brush rotation you will need to remove clutch unit to either replace thr belts or fit new clutch.

I changing the belt


Hi,

Not sure why you claim clutch belts cant be changed because they can.
The DC04 DC07 DC14 all use the same clutch unit if you cant get the belts from your local vac repair shop look on Ebay they are on there.
The special tools are torx screwdrivers & if replacing both belts you will require circlip pliers.

How to replace both belts in manual form can be found here http://dysonmanuals.llc.nu/index.htm

Dyson Refuses to Honor Warranty


Hi. I have been repairing Dyson machines since they first came out. DO NOT PAY FOR A NEW CLUTCH. I can assure you that both clutch belts can be replaced. Its A tricky job & can take some time to do. Its more cost effective for a shop to fit a new clutch at your expense $150 Clutch Belts are readily available in the UK you can purchase belts from numerouse sites for approx $10 postage to states $3 to $5 saving you a small fortune. If you want to know how to fit the 2 belts I can sell you A manual for approx $11 Or contact me at dyson@gawab.com for more information.
