Hello,

Thank you for reading my post and offering help.  I have tried a search but couldn't find my issue.  I am a novice at vacuum repair, but I've changed a few belts and I am not afraid to get my hands dirty.  I would rather fix this vacuum than replace it.

I have a Dyson DC14 Animal Vacuum.
It will power on
The vacuum will suck in air
The roller/brush bar will not turn
The belt on the roller/brush bar is in good condition

How do I diagnose and fix this?

Thank you Angus,
That was exactly what was wrong.  Turns out I was an idiot and it was fine the whole time! I just didn't know about the clutch! I feel kind of silly, but I'm really glad my dyson is working again!

A pleasure.

No need to feel silly, I wrote that little article on the blog because this pops up so often. Fear not, you are not the first.  ;)
