We have a dyson dc 07 animal the machine was working fine then switched off after returning to the machine minutes later it wouldnt switch on, i removed on off switch cover and used a short piece of wire across the brown wires flicked the wall switch and it worked, aha i thought faulty switch aquired a new one to no avail and now even the short piece of wire trick doesnt work, has the motor died do you think, it wasnt over heating or making strange noises prior to refusing to work
It could be the motor. I'm having to replace the brushes on my DC 05. It appears that you can only get brushes for the YDK motors in the DYSON, not the Panasonic motor. Which might be saying something about the YDK motors. What happens is that the ca ... Dyson DC05 Cylinder Bagless Canister Cyclonic Vacuum
DYSON DC05 It just doesnt want to turn on. I switched it off, one minute later I tried to switch it back on and it didnt work. I have washed the filters, checked the tubes and everything seems ok.......any ideas? thank you, Lucie
My friends Dyson DC05 was loosing suction and then it stopped altogether one day. When she took the filters out there was black soot in them so it was obvious that the motor had burnt out. I think this happened because she wasn't cleaning the filters ... Dyson DC05 Cylinder Bagless Canister Cyclonic Vacuum
Dyson DC-31 stopped working all of a sudden. Changing battery didntvresolve the problem - even the diode doesnt light. Any tries to combine the motor of 31 with the body from 35 were not success. Please, tell me if there are any hidden ways to check or diagnose the motor?
I have a Dyson all-floor model (not the ball). I recently replaced my carpet to a Frieze. Since replacing the carpet, the Dyson is extremely hard to push. It almost forms a "seal" with the carpet. Seems to work fine on Berber carpet and laminate floor. My husband has checked to make sure the brushes are working, hoses are not clogged and belts are OK. I've had it for about a year. It is virutally impossible to push on the new carpet. Any ideas?

The brush on my bissell helix (model 22C1-2) stopped working all of a sudden today. The hose still sucks and everything. I even cleaned the spinning brush and it still doesnt work. I just bought it in August.
Why doesnt my Dyson auto adjust on our carpet? We have a taller, soft carpet and it digs into it, making it very difficult to vacuum. We have had the vacuum for about a year at another house and it worked GREAT on the berber......our new has a tall carpet somewhat like shaved berber and now the vacuum wont work.

Hi, our Dyson cuts out after about 60 secs. We've checked all the filters plus, having read that if it works without the vortex then the problem's there (it did work) we're still none the wiser because having dismantled the vortex as much as poss, there don't appear to be any problems - any ideas?

Plugged my Dyson in this morning, switched it on and power came on for not even a second and died. No power what so ever to dyson - checked my house sockets, changed fuse. Still not working - dead as a door mouse. What could it be? Many thanks Sam
It is either your power cable, cable rewind mechanism or your motor. \012\012Try switching it on, and wiggling the lead near the plug and see if it fires up. If it does, remove the moulded plug and fit a standard plug. \012\012If not, lik ... Dyson DC08 Cylinder Bagless Canister Cyclonic Vacuum
Hi My Hoover wind tunnel cyclonic stopped working when i was using it. I tried different plug even then it doesnt work . What to do??
If the motor stopped running, it most likely did because it was not being cooled, becuause something was stopping up the air flow. If you have cleaned the secondary filter out and it still stops while running, then remove the exhaust filter cartridg ... Dirt Devil Hoover Uh70085 Pet Cyclonic? Upright Vacuum
My Dyson animal seems to have an electrical issue that I am unable to pinpoint. Neither the wand nor the floor vac have any suction AT ALL. In fact the vac makes absolutely no sound and you wouldn't even know that it had power to it unless the rollers are turned on, the rollers work just fine. I had this problem start about a month ago and then it just started working again after messing with it for a while, now it has happened again and I am getting a little agitated! Please Help!!!!!!!!!!!
There is a filter inside the canister, and by your description it sounds like it needs to be cleaned. if you remove the filter and blow it out using a air compressor or using a slightly ridged brush and tapping the filter out this should solve your ...

I have a iRobot 4150 and have recently experiencing performance issues with the vacuum. Recently, it started stopping about a minute after you turn it on. I thought maybe the battery was the issue, but I bought a replacement. It has worked well for the past 6 months. While it's running it sounds like it is going to die, even though it is fully charged. Any ideas?
Yes, a common issue with the cleaning head module, chm. You will need to diassemble the Roomba and remove all debris from the CHM. Also take a look in its gear box. ... iRobot 4150 Roomba Vacuum
My dyson has stopped working. There was a burning smell and then a strange noise and now it wont even switch on.
The Motor sounds like it has gone bad. Bagless machines like these always have motor problem. If it is under warranty then it will need to be shipped to Buffalo New York. I would trade in in on a Riccar vacuum. You can get 20 years out of those f ... Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

My dyson dc05 just stopped working,any idea what the fault could be? i,ve had it about 7 years
Guessing that the power plug has broken wiring inside the plug--try replacing the plug with an aftermarket plug from the home center or hardware store. Another possibility is the power switch has gone bad--replace it with the proper part ordered from ... Dyson DC05 Bagless Canister Cyclonic Vacuum

Why does my dyson slim dc18 keep shutting down, even though i keep it clean. Filters area is clean and all others have been properly blown out with air from a air compressor. It will work for about 5-10 minutes and then shuts down. Smells like ****, check the belt and a bit later it restarts again. It's seems to be almost over heating.
Maybe your motor is going. Here's a link to a site that talks about motor failure and replacement in a DC07 (not DC18). I don't know exactly what the odor smells like but maybe you can see if you have any of the other symptoms. Good luck! ...

Hi i have a dyson DC 05 (yellow) vacuum which is playing up. it refuses to come on, but sometimes when you waggle the flex a bit it works after a while. Any ideas how I can get into the flex housing?
Thats your trouble You have a Dyson ... Vacuums
Same here... I have a DC-15 Animal, it was making a clogged type noise and before I had time to react, it stopped working and I smelled burning rubber. I also noticed that the ball was really hot. It's too late to call support, but I intend on doing so in the morning. I've only had my Dyson for a year, so I'm sure it's covered, however, I have no idea where my receipt is. Did they take care of your issue?
You sucked up something that stopped the brush from turning. This made the belt slip causing a burning smell. ... Dyson DC14 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
