If the DC14 has a brush protected aspect i.e. a switch on the front that puts the drive belt off, the drive belt would have to be replaced by a professional repairer as this can't be done at home.
If the model doesn't have the brush control at the front, flip the Dyson over so that the beater bar is in the air and locate three/four screws that can be taken out with a coin or blunt knife. A turn is all that is required on those notches and the sole plate should come off once these notches have been undone. Then check the belt - if it has broken lift out the beater bar in the middle with your hand and replace the sections necessary. Be careful to check that the end caps are pushed in properly otherwise the beater bar will not sit correctly.

It MAY be a clutch issue. I had a similar problem with my DC07 Animal recently a posted a solution elsewhere on this site, but here's the summary. To reset the clutch on my model, recline the vacuum, turn it on it's side and slowly change the carpet/bare floor knob from one setting to the other about 6 times. This apparently reset the clutch and now it works fine. You may also wish to call DYSON. They're very helpful and walk you through troubleshooting before recommending servicing. Their number is 1-866-693-9766. They'll need your model and serial number (located on bottom of uinit).

SOURCE: Dyson DC14 Brush Bar won't turn
You don't need to take it for repairs, I just corrected the same problem on the phone with a tech. Have the head on your lap, make sure the end nearest the little belt has the rounded side of the bar facing you. The squared off end faces towards the machine. Place your left hand pointy finger under the bar (the 2 inch bar next to the little belt) and lift up, while finessing the loose end of the bar into place, with the rounded part still facing you. Then it sort of snaps into place. Now, replace the face plate. In the upright mode, starting at the carpet dial, switch the dial back and forth between carpet and bare floor, ten times. (the tech actually referred to this as re-setting the vac. LOL) Plug the vac in, incline the hand, and start. It should work. It didn't for me the first time and made a horrible sound. That meant I had to go and repeat the process again, but lo and behold, IT WORKED! When in doubt, call the tech and don't let them get away from you; have them stay on the line until the problem is resolved.
