SOURCE: burning smell
Have you checked the the hoses are free of debris?
Is the setting for floor on when you are vacuuming the carpet.
Turn id on an see if it will **** up some pennies.
Use the hose for that.
Check for string hair, etc cought in the brush.
Use the small pick knife that should have came w/ the dyson to cut away and thing caught in the brush.
Hope this helps.

A DC 14 has two belts - one that connects the motor ourput to the clutch mechanism (the dial that lets you turn off the brush rotation completely is part of the clutch mechanism), and another that connects the clutch to the brush bar.
Unfortuneatley, the one that connects the motor to the clutch is hidden under a plastic cover so is very difficult to check.
With the machine running, and NOT in the upright position (i.e. as if you were vacuuming a floor), make sure the brush bar is actually rotating. If it isnt, you need to check both belts and the clutch. Due to the cover being held by three "Torx" screws, one of which is very difficult to get at, this isnt easy.
If the brush bar is rotating, then the burning is an indication the motor is about to fail. Motor replacement is possible depending how good your DIY skills are, and again you'll need "Torx" drivers to dismantle it. Website www.dysonmedic.com has some very good info.

Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. Almost certainly it is the motor gone :(. Take off the lid that is under your bin and look at the filter underneath, if it has a black underside and a kind of burnt smell you will need to put a new motor in. If you happen to live in Australia you can get a motor from NelsonVacuums.com.au here is a link to the correct page. Hope this helps.

I have made a video showing how to replace the motor on a Dyson DC08. If you follow the instructions you should be able to do it. If you find the video helpful please give me a thumbs up or a comment.
If you find you need parts for this procedure I would recommend Vacuumspot or Nelson Vacuums
Dont forget to let me know how you go!.
