Actually, I'm the poster who said I have the same problem, but it turns out I have the DC07 animal, not the DC14, but perhaps the solution is the same for the DC14 and it doesn't cost anything! I called DYSON and they told me the clutch needed to be reset, so she had me recline the vacuum from its upright position, lay it on it's side, turn the carpet/bare floor dial slowly back and forth between the two settings about 6 times and it apparently reset the clutch and now the cleaner bar spins normally and there's no more loud grinding-type noises. She said if that didn't work, the next step would be to remove the bottom protective panel (secured with the three large plastic screws) and lift the entire cleaner bar (do not remove the belt) out about an inch or so and then reinsert it and reattach the bottom plate. I hope this helps your problem. Good luck.

This happens when the bristles in the brush roll get worn down too short. Put in a new brush roll and the machine will pull itself over the carpet, so you hardly have to push at all.

The end caps of the brush assembly which contain the bearings are only a push fit onto the spindle (quite tight). Remove these and the brush bar will pass through the drive belt loop. To achieve this the belt has to be stretched slightly so care has to be taken not to over-stretch what might be a belt getting to the end of its life. When refitting the end caps do not forget to aline them properly so they fit into the sole plate recesses correctly.
I cannot see at the moment how to replace the drive belt on the DC 07 without significant dismantling (that will probably be my next job) I do not see the use of the Dyson tool you offered.

That is an indication that the belts are worn, stretched or broken. You simply need to replace the belt. Here is a link to the belt(s) you need and a manual you can view:

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.
DC25 doesn't include a dedicated reset switch - instead, the reset mechanism is built into the main on/off and brush control switches.
Once you've checked the cleaner head for obstructions and removed any threads or hair from around the brush bar and endcap, you should be able to resolve your issue by following the simple steps shown in our support video guide: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q--faamcC7g

CARPETS OR HARD FLOORS
• The brush bar will always default to 'ON' (spinning) each time you switch the
appliance 'ON' and recline it for cleaning.
• The brush bar will not rotate when the appliance is upright.
• To switch the brush bar 'OFF' (e.g. for delicate rugs and hard floors):
- switch the appliance 'ON'
- recline the appliance
- press the brush bar 'ON/OFF' button - the brush bar will stop spinning.
• The brush bar will automatically stop if it becomes obstructed. See 'Brush bar -
• Before vacuuming your flooring, rugs and carpets, check the manufacturer's
recommended cleaning instructions.
• Some carpets may fuzz if a rotating brush bar is used when vacuuming. If this
happens, we recommend vacuuming in 'hard floor' mode and consulting with
the flooring manufacturer.
• The brush bar on the appliance may damage some carpet types. If you are
unsure, turn 'OFF' the brush bar.
