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 eBaywill not turn bottom blad for hoovering - 2_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.

Hoover flair needs a belt replacement


Remove the small screws on the bottom of the powerhead. On some models there are 2 hidden beneath the rubber wheels in front. Just pop the wheels out with a flat blade screwdriver and remove those two as well. Remove the hood and you have access to the belt, motor and roller.
Here's the correct belt:

On hoover steam carpet cleaner, the brushes do not rotate on low or high settings.


Follow these steps if the Brushes Fail to Spin
•If the brushes on your Hoover carpet cleaner fail to spin, there may be a problem---some sort of blockage---with the suction or with the belt that turns the brushes.
Turn the Hoover carpet cleaner over, and inspect the brush area. Debris, strings, or pet hair may be tangled in the rollers, keeping them from turning. Use a pair of scissors to cut away any obstructions in this area. Flip the Hoover carpet cleaner back over, and turn it on to see if cleaning the rollers has solved the problem.
To check the belt, turn the Hoover carpet cleaner over, and remove the bottom plate screw with a Phillips head screwdriver. Investigate the belt area to see if it is broken or has somehow slipped off. If it is broken, you can order a part from Hoover.com or from many of the other online parts stores.
When the belt arrives, simply slide it on in place of the broken belt, reattach the bottom plate and turn the Hoover carpet cleaner right-side up. Turn it on to test your solution.

Can not get the DAMN replacement belt on


Take the bottom plate off, the top needs to come off also, if you don't see any screws, then on each side edge, from the bottom, use a flat blade screw driver, pry up on each spot and the top will come off. Put the belt over the brush roll, put the bottom plate back on, turn it back over and stretch the belt to go around the motor shaft, turn it by hand to make sure it moves freely, then put the top cover and knob back on. Just push down hard until it snaps into place.

How did you remove the top cover to get at the arm for the cable drive? (I don't want to break anything else!)


Turn it over, remove the plate over the brush roll, remove the cover over the intake hose, then there are 2 screws, one on each site, remove them, then using a flat blade, there is a slot on each side, from the bottom, push it in to release it and then the top will come off.

You need to take the top cover off to get to motor shaft. Some had a couple of screws from the bottom, others had tabs, use a flat blade screwdriver to fit into the slots at the bottom edge of the top, pry out and up to pop the cover off.
