Dyson DC04. how do i strip down to the motor to check the bushes & to give it a clean?
My dyson has started to give off an acrid smell when I use it. I have checked all areas for blockages, cleaned the removable filter and removed all hair from the brush but this has not helped. I am worried the motor is getting hot in use. Whats the best thing to do next? Thanks

My older Dyson DC14 (the purple one) early model with a clutch on the beater bar belt needs a clutch replacement. The bar has been cleaned and there are no worn or damaged parts so I conclude that the clutch at the motor end of the belt needs to be replaced. I can find the part online but no instructions on how to disassemble the vacuum to get to and replace it. Dysons only advice is to give me the address and phone of the nearest service center. Can you help me?

I have a DC07 which is not picking up very well. I've cleaned the pre motor filter, was not aware of the post motor and will check. However, do the Dyson brush rollers wear to the point of not picking up things from carpet?

My Dyson DC17 beater bar motor works intermittedly. I have to almost whack it on the floor to turn it on and then shuts off again. I have checked the belt and it is fine, also have checked for blockages. The switch to turn the beater bar on or off will not work when the beater bar motor is off. the suction is fine though.

No suction I have the central vac type. It has no suction at the can. I pulled the hose going to the walls and tested there...and nothing. I removed the dirt can and checked the motor ...it is spinning but does not feel like any suction. I checked the exhaust and it is pushing strong air out. I also cleaned the filter and still nothing. Is there a relay or something that would cause only exhaust air. I emptied the can of dirt and put it back together and have absolutely no air.....hear the motor

Pump is probably bad. When you put the lid back down, did you put the piston on the bottom of the smart mix knob? Also the smart mix knob should be in the water only selection when the top is pushed all of the way down. Also sometimes the flow ind ... Vacuums

I would make sure it is the motor first by isolating the sounds to just the motor. Take off the dirt cup, both filters, and belt, then run it and see if the sound is still there.
