If by brush ass you mean just the swivel brush mount and not the cleaner head then
I had this same problem with a USA model dc14 brought to my shop.
It turns out to be the hose as this acts as a spring to allow the brush assembely to sit flush to the carpet.
Just turn the hose a few degrees .

Just check that the hose is the correct lenth some after market ones are shorter or longer, compair it to your old one if longer cut it.
