Hi.

Your Dyson will probably have A clutch unit this engages the brush roller when you pull the handle back to vacuum.

Check the clutch control knob which is at the bottom left front side of machine looking from the front & rotates to drive position when handle is pulled back.

If it doesnt turn the knob by hand to drive.

If you still have no brush rotation after doing all this then either the clutch is faulty or the second belt which goes clutch to motor has snapped & will need replacing.

There are service manuals available for these repairs at this site

Will not turn bottom blad for hoovering


DC14s 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 eBay2_bing.gif 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 which is very similiar to your DC 14, but unless you have access to such tools, and feel confident to tackle it, it's probably time tocall Dyson or a Vacuum repairer.

My DC 14 makes a terrible noise when I am vacuuming on carpet, so I put it in the upright postion and it stops. I but down the head and the noise will stop. If I bump the head it will start making the...


If the noise is rattly then it means the drive belt needs replacing, if your model has a protective brush on/off mode on the front plate where you would normally put your foot, it would have to be repaired officially by a repairer. Replacing a protective drive belt can only be done by Dyson repairers or those that repair Dysons.
