Well I have been using oneplus one for a few days and realized it is not vibrating at all. I thought it was defected but it vibrates on startup and when using TWRP recovery. Really don't want to factory reset. You think this is problem with cyanogen mod? If I install another rom will it fix it? Really like cyanogen though... If I don't wipe data when flashing new rom will I still have all my apps and data or will I still need to use titanium backup?
Any help in fixing this without new rom or reset? I fixed permissions already. Is there a file you can edit to adjust vibration settings? I am rooted, bootloader unlocked, and have TWRP installed.

First thing, always wipe data when switching ROMs, always. Not wiping data is opening the door to a world of problems. Now, when you say it isn't vibrating do you mean for phone calls, notifications, what exactly?

It is not vibrating at all in cyanogen mod. At all! For phone, notifications, touch, everything! It only vibrates when you turn it on or within twrp

Ok, I have to ask a stupid question, but you do have vibration enabled right? If so, then I'd suggest you perform a factory reset.

I'd try a factory reset. You're not running a custom kernel are you?

I flashed Pacman rom and vibration works now, battery life is still so so. People claim to get 2 days, I am on 68 and have 1 1/2 hr screen on time. Better than cm but no where close to 5+ hrs people claim to be getting

I think this is bug from profiles or quiet hours. The link to cyanogen mod bug-
https://jira.cyanogenmod.org/browse/BACON-467

I have owned OPO for few days and probably on 2nd day I lost the vibration. This was driving me crazy for last few days, I even raised a ticket with OPO hardware thinking the motor is shot but then I can see that the phone vibrates on bootup. I recently came across someone saying that the file sys/devices/virtual/timed_output/vibrator/enable value staying as 0 is causing the motor to not work. Come to think of it, I started using profiles and quiet hours from next day.

I don't know if there's a workaround editing the enable file value to 1? I think my notification LED light is also not working cause of the issues with quiet hours.

I ended up switching to Pacman rom and it worked, then I switched back to cm 11s and it still works. The vibrator is not that intense, especially compared to my HTC one m8

I believe the factory reset works but I have just moved all of my apps (200+) and data to my new OPO. I am not very enthusiastic about re-doing the whole setup. Fingers crossed and hopefully Cyanogen team will fix it very soon. If you like it fixed too, please register with jira.cyanogen and vote for this issue. It might get more attention.

I had the same issue. It was just the quiet hours misbehaving. It was showing me enabled in my quick tiles and disabled in the settings and the tile wasn't responding to the clicks.
Here is how I solved it:
1) Reset the tiles and readded quiet hours thinking that it would respond but it didn't (so not a necessary step but no harm in trying).
2) Went in the quiet hours settings and clicked on enforce quiet hours.
3) Now tried clicking on the notification toggle and it responded and turned off but the "enforce quiet hours" in settings hadn't.
4) Unticked it in settings too and my vibration is back.

Loving this so much. For people who got same issue even after factory reset, you may be doing the same mistake again.

Hope this helps.
