Why isn't my beater bar spinning?

History

The beater bar isn't spinning, the belt seems fine, the suction is good. The filters have been cleaned. I've had the vacuum for about 5 years and never had an issue until now. It also doesn't want to stand upright--but this could be an unrelated issue.

I've never had any first hand experience with the Dyson DC14, but this DysonMedic post and this other post might help steer you in the right direction. Good luck!

The belt is still tight but will not turn when on.

Your beater bar is not moving because the gear that it's belt sits on is full of hair, threads etc.

Unplug the vacuum.

Remove the beater bar cover using a large coin.

Remove the beater bar. This will take some patience and time.

Remove the belt.

The gear should have hair strands etc. wound around it.

Remove the hair etc.

Replace the belt.

Replace the beater bar.

Replace the beater bar cover.

Plug in the vacuum.

Thouroughly clean your carpet as it hasn't been cleaned well the last few times do to the vacuum not working properly.

I took the beater bar partway out and pulled away threads. The belt seemed fine also. I put all parts back on and voila! It was working. My guess is I may have been a little rough when vacuuming and jarred the bar out of place.
