Having problems with your Dyson DC05 Bagless Canister Cyclonic Vacuum ?

I have a dyson dc05 absolute turbobrush vacuum. turned it on and it slowly died in seconds. then tried to turn on again and only came on sporatically for a moment. Is it the on/off switch or motor?

Hi there VacuumGuru for vacuumspot.com.au here. It is likely to be the motor for that model but it is easy to test. I will answer this with the assumption that a person wouldn't try to repair something they are not qualified to do. All you have to do is disconnect the wires off your switch and join them together (with power cord disconnected from socket obviously). Then plug you cord in again. If it still plays up then it is your motor if its fine replace your switch. We stock switches and the motor for that machine if you live in australia by the way.

I have a Eureka Upright vacuum (4800 Series). When I try to start it by turning the switch on, it wont. For few days, I was able to get around this problem by repeatedly turning the switch on and off until it turned on but that does not work any more. Could it be something related to the switch it self or the power cable. My wife mentioned that one of my kids might have pulled the power cable too hard (at the back of the vacuum).

However, poor Henry had his cable replaced to find when plugged in, he tries to start but nothing happens. The motor turns once and just cuts out. If you turn it on and off again it happens again.

I have Nutone VX550C. Motor runs intermittently (cycles on and off rapidly--the light on the handle is blinking furiously) when I use the on/off switch on the hose. This happens at all of the wall connectors, so suggests a hose contact problem. Motor runs continuously when I turn it on at the switch on the wall unit.

I have an Electrolux Commercial Upright vacuum Model U129C. It has a device which turns off the motor driving the beater bar if something gets stuck in it. There is a simple reset button to restart the beater after clearing the obstruction. Just recently on flat dense low pile surfaces the switch cuts in after just a few seconds and turns the beater bar off. This doesn't happen on high pile carpet but the motor doesn't quite sound normal. There is no obstruction - the beater bar can spin freely

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.
