Did you take the brush roll out and check the bearings were not seized?

have you twisted the belt on the clutch ?
take off and make sure then do again
good luck

I did unhook the belt from the roller.....but though I had it back on properly......is it just a case of doing it again..or is there a way of dismantling things further...I dont have any instructions and was boing it blind.......I unloosened the 3 screws on the head, lifted the cover out of the way.....cleaned it.......but did have to move the belt to get in properley,,,,,I then slid the roller back under the belt and fit the head back together.....

Does this sound like my belt is miss aligned or something - thanks

normal ones have dyson on the outside
check with the cover off it is not twisted replace cover etc then brush roller look for the dyson letters most have it
try again if it still makes rachet noise change clutch ,look on youtube there is a video showing you how
good luck
