I had the same problem, from right out of the box. Now that I just threw mine out, I see this site that indicates there's a fix for it:
And search for other sites isung "dyson grinding" or similar.
Since I was an early adopter (had one as soon as they came stateside), I did not have the benefit of countless others having the same problem, I just attributed it to a junky design, since so much else about this vacuum was poorly designed, like the seals, hoses, etc.
Give them a call, and good luck! I might rescue mine from the heap and do the same.

i managed to take the cyclone apart. here is some help with what i did I hope this helps. You will need a philips and torx screw drivers. Especially torx with T - handles and thin shaft makes the task much faster and easier.
1. first undo the screws holding the top handle.
2. lift that part of the handle and pull towards the other end of the handle at the same time. Care this is a tricky manoeuvre but the other end is just sloted in. sometimes may be glued so some force may be needed. see photo 1
3 Once the handle is off. there will be screw under the end that you pulled off. undo that screw. see photo
4. Now turn the cyclone upside down. Pull the cone off. this is only a push fit and should pull off
5. Now you should be able to see the three torx screws holes as indicated in the photo.
6 The removal of these torx will enable this section to be pulled off exposing one more layer with three further torx screws to be removed as indicated in the next photo
7 Once the final torx screws are removed, turn the cyclone upright and the top bit which held the handle should come off exposing the complex combe structure. see photo
8 Then you should be able to lift the combe structure as well see photo
9. and final photo of all the part that have come apart
10. Thoroughly was all the parts with water and make ABSOLUTLY sure that the part are dry before putting it altogather again. Your vacuum will be as good as new. mine was. good luck and happy cleaning.

1. Check the on/off button these can also be troublesome and if you've stood on the cable once or twice you could have a break in the wire and it's shorting, check by turning on and wiggle cable around where it enters machine.
2. Faulty thermocouple, it is held in a white plastic housing screwed with one T15 torx screw to the motor housing. You could replace it but I just shorted mine with some wire and it hasn't failed since and more importantly not caught fire yet!

My Dyson DC14 had no suction...see if this works...turn the Dyson upside down...there is a length of hose that connects the bottom of the vacuum to the top, careful remove one end of the hose and check for debris...mine was clogged. Removed the clog and voila...it works. Thanks for the above info on checking the hose for cracks.
