When the vacuum is in upright position to use there I no suction at all, plus the brushbar is not even turning at all, is there a motor inside that turns the belt?

take the sole plate off the bottom make sure the brush spins freely then try again if it does not spin it looks like the clutch has gone , not sure if its worth the clutch  repair thay are a little long in the tooth for me thats only my opinion

Is the clutch switched on?



The knob in the circle should be turned one notch clockwise.

If the clutch is duff, we have used and new ones.

Some people still like them. We sold a reconditioned one only this week. You can still get all the parts, so no reason not to fix them if they suit your needs.

I tend to sell DC03's within days when I put them up for sale!

As long as people keep snapping them up, I'll keep doing 'em  :thumbsup:
