SOURCE: Brushbar not spinning
If your Dc14 is all floors it will have A clutch fitted this is easy to determine just stand in front of your machine look down at the left hand side there will be a coloured knob on the side e.g. blue.yellow,green,purple this will have a pointer on it which when you pull handle back to vacuum must move to drive position you can rotate it by hand if it is stuck in park position ,
If there is no belts broken the brushes will now turn.
If they don’t the chances are one of the 2 belts have snapped.
You will then need Manuals to help you repair the problem.

Well dummy me. I called Dyson. There is an on/off switch RIGHT NEXT TO THE MAIN ON OFF for JUST the beater bar. Itis not highlighted in the manual and I never even looked at the front of the machine! Pressing did reactivate beater bar after the auto shut off caused by the sock! HOWEVER I am keeping the more complicated clutch instructions, just in case. Thanks!

In theory, yes. If the brushbar isn't held firmly, then the belt isn't running smoothly which puts more strain on the motor. This can cause the motor to get hot very quickly which will trip the thermal overload protection.
After it switches off, do you have to wait several minutes before it will turn back on?

SOURCE: Hello! Help!! The brushbar
Sorry this is not a solution. But after reading your problem and other people with the same problem, i just wanted to say i have a Dyson DC24 ball and have only had it 1 year and the exact same thing has happend it is spotless inside and out including the pipes and brush bar, still no matter how many times i press the reset button it still wont spin. I am going to go back to a Hover because im fed up with this piece of **** Dyson! sorry but wasnt there a time when things where built to last! I am now using an ancient Hover junior which is the spare vacume cleaner we keep in the cupboard. Dyson LOL.

If your brushbar wont turn and the belt is definatley fitted correctly then there is a problem with the brushbar itself.
If the brushbar is old then they can be affected internally by clogging up.
Assuming you have the "Clutch" version of Dyson. This is one that has a spiral brushbar.
There are 2 types of brushbar, 1 for the Clutch Version and 1 for the Non Clutch version.
Either way you will need to replace the brushbar. Please watch the video....
