DC14 - Roller Brush / Beater Bar not turning - Help Pls
« on: April 23, 2012, 11:12:06 PM »
Hi.

The Beater Bar on my DC14 Animal doesn't turn.

the motor runs OK, I've tried turning the bar by hand but it's VERY stiff, I've selected Auto on the clutch, I've tried it with the handle "Reclined", I've taken the bar out and it spins quite freely within it's bearings and now I'm stumped as to why it's not working.  :'(

Any suggestions / help appreciated.

many thanks

sorted it!  ;D

'twas a stone trapped twixt the belt and the clutch housing somewhere  :o

Removed the clutch housing, pulled the belt and hey presto, out pops this rock  :sick0012:

All turning freely by hand now - will wait 'till morning to test with the power on.
