The guide suggest that you change the belt by putting it around the brush, through the plate, and then try to push it around the spindle, which has a space between it and the casing. I spent an hour trying to do this and couldn't get enough purchase to get the belt around the spindle. Instead I put it around the spindle first, and then through the plate, and then through a screwdriver to hold it in place. I then got the brush and put the band over the brush, rotating it until it went into the groove. I then reassembled. It worked, and I now realise how powerful that brush is. Hope it works.

I guess you don't need me to tell you you've got a major electrical problem! Question is, what do you need by way of help? At the very least you will need new carbon brushes for the motor, and it's quite likely that you may need a complete new motor. Trouble is that Dysons generally are not easy for the amateur to get in to and Dyson do not make technical manuals available. It's a while since I had to work on a DC14 and I can't remember how to get at the motor. The best I can do is spell out your options: 1. Try to do it yourself and risk breaking something, 2. wait for a reply on this site from someone else (although to judge from the number of unanswered Dyson problems here, you may wait for ever), 3. take it to a specialist repairer or call Dyson direct for advice (but they won't give you any guidance for doing the work yourself).
Good luck. If you need to ask specific questions, post again here and I'll help if I can.

It sounds like the motor has overheated and has now been irrepairable damaged.
The motor has a built in over-current trip to protect itself (and you if it seriously overheated and caught fire). This normally automatically resets itself, however if the motor has just about had it, the moment it is switched on, it just trips again.
The primary cause of motors overheating is that the filters are not cleaned or replaced frequently enough. Dont be fooled by Dyson's "lifetime filters". They need to be regularly cleaned and replaced when necessary.
Replacement motors are avaible on eBay for about £25, however repalcing one requires good DIY skills and tools.
Have a look at www.dysonmedic.com and see if you feel you can tackle it yourself. If not, take it to a repair shop or call the Dyson helpline.
