Question about Dyson Vacuums
Most likely to be the motor. Assuming you have checked the fuse. It could be the cable but a DC08 is an old machine and it is likely that the motor will have died. It’s replaceable for around £65 (motor)

Start by testing the cord and switch to be sure you are getting proper electrical voltage. If so check at the motor. If you are getting proper voltage to the motor and it won't run you may need a new motor.
If you are not experienced in doing the testing required to determine the source and cause of problem or problems it may be less expensive and a lot safer to hire a professional. Not all vacuum repair shops can repair Dyson vacuums. I highly recommend a repair shop that is a Riccar Warranty center as they have the proper training to do the repair correctly.

These motors have a fuse incorporated in the field winding and it sounds like that blew. These motors sometimes overheat at the front bearing and the bearing will melt into the plastic housing. This will cause the fuse to blow. It sounds like that's your problem. You can remove the motor by removing the three screws on the bottom of the powerhead and then check the front bearing for any bubbling or blistering in the plastic housing. The shaft of the motor should turn easily.

Just had the same problem. Switches and motor checked ok, then found the circuit board on the left hand side of cleaner. The fuse (on the board) looked ok, but when removed and checked for continuity I found it had blown. The problem I have now found is that the fuse cannot be ordered only the complete board. Hope it gets the brush roller going again.

Hi there, It is a bit difficult to describe how to change the motor for a Dyson DC08 so I have made a video. I think it shows how it's done pretty clearly if you like the video leave me a thumbs up or a comment. If you realise while watching that you need parts for your dyson I would recommend you check out Nelson Vacuums or Vacuumspot.
