Solved: Dyson Brush Bar Won’t Spin
I recently resolve an issue with our Dyson DC14 Vacuum and thought I’d share the extremely simple solution as I didn’t see it on Dyson’s site nor in the user’s manual.
Symptoms: Main brush bar on Dyson DC14 won’t spin at all. Belt is still in great working condition and brush bar can be turned by hand with no substantial resistance. Symptoms began after the brush bar caught on some clothe.
Cause: The belt motor has a safety mechanism that prevents it from turning after a serious obstruction has blocked the brush bar. This prevents it from causing additional damage and/or wearing out the motor.
Solution: Check the brush bar to ensure that there isn’t any hair or thread that is caught. Stand the vacuum upright. Press the brush bar switch (next to the power button on the DC14) 4 or 5 times. This resets the safety mechanism.
