Having problems with your Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?

Brush roll won't turn

\015 I ran over a corner of a rubber rug mat (the kind of mats you put under a rug to keep it from moving) I turned off the machine immediately and there were a couple small pieces of the mat in it but nothing much. The brush turns fine manually but I guess whatever motor turns the brush quit working...it was just a second before I shut it off. Any chance the motor has a reset button?\015

Answers :

We have the exact problem,I have no answer but I found that the machine has a clutch that controals the belt.
\015\012Without a manual I cannot se how to test the clutch or to even get to it. I did find the part on the internet $$50.00 but it may be very simple if a whole new clutch is not needed.
Mine has 2 brushes on it
\015\012if you will take the side assembly apart you will notice it uses two belts to drive the two rollers
\015\012sometimes one of the belts get pulled off the side which can cause your problem this is about a 15 minute fix for most units.
\015\012note this is a good time to clean the assemble up and see if the plastic gear on each beater bar (roller brush assembly) is in good shape as sometime when the belt comes off it grinds all the surface off of the plastic gear.and ruins the beater bar.
\015\012i would advise everybody to check both beater bars each time you use it to make sure they are turning ok.

Brush Roll belt stops turning durring vacuuming on WindTunnel self-propelled, v belt is a little loose with handle down. Tensioning roll is engaged OK, but fully at the end of its travel. Replaced belts flat and v, but still stops turning even on high carpet setting when vacuuming. Carpet setting and height adjustment appears to be working OK, roll is clean and turns easily when out. Also turns easily until it engages the carpet. Self propel function works just fine.

How is the V-belt tension adjusted (Hoover Model U6439-900)or how do I know if the tension is correct? There seems to be a lot of "play" in the belt and I'm wondering if that is the reason the brush roll only turns as the wheels turn, regardless of the carpet height setting. And yes, the brush roll is set for carpet, not hard floor. Or is the cause of the problem something other than the V-belt? A new flat belt was installed when the machine was professionally serviced so I assume (?) that was a


The V-Belt is not adjustable. There are two ways the belt has no tension: (1) when the handle is upright, a mechanical lever takes the drive tension off the belt, and (2) the brush roll lever setting you described.
