Have you fitted a new pre-filter? Or washed and dried the old one properly? (Not just rinsed it under the tap.)

Does it run hot without the cyclone? Is the cyclone blocked?

I saw that when it was listed. I see he has Collect+ shipping!  :o

They'll smash it to bits!  :(

I was going to have a dabble at this, but as I have one and a G-Force already, I'll pass.

In that condition with no tools and damaged hoses, I'm going to guess it'll sell at 400 - 450. Below that and it's cheap.

Double triple check everything has gone back together properly and that nothing is blocked. There are a couple of threads on the forum regarding dc05 stripping and rebuilding, perhaps a search for them and a read might find the problem.

Hi All,
I have just replaced the motor in my DC05 as it had burnt out. Purchased from Manchester Vacs - excellent service and this looks like a great place to get some advice!
So, after changing the motor the DC05 fired straight up - happy days!
However the suction doesn't seem as good as I remember and the air which exits past the cable reel seems hotter than I remember. It has been I while since I used the DC05 though (been using a broom!) and maybe this is how it should be. The dirt in the cylinder doesn't spin like I'm sure it used too.
A search on here suggested trying it without the HEPA filter but still hot and down on suction.
I haven't run it for long enough to cut out as I am worried about burning out the new motor.
I am sure the new motor is fine as it makes all the right noises!

Advice appreciated, thanks in advance!

Hi, Just in case you haven't seen, there's a Rotork on eBay (in Elgin, Scotland)
Better be quick though, finishes at 22:39 tonight.

It's currently at 262 with 30 bids, and I can't afford it  :(

I'd go with a new filter as I've had this a few times on DC25's that have had aftermarket filters on them.

Hi again Claire - I noticed your testimonials section - here's some text if you want to add it.

Thank you very much for the very helpful advice I received from staff at Manchester Vacs via the forum and for the similarly helpful, friendly, polite and efficient service I received in conjunction with my internet order - all very much appreciated. I have recommended your shop to family living in the Manchester area and will also mention you to other Dyson owning friends if they're in need of parts or repair. Thanks again, John

mrdyson is correct, I've had a DC25 which had the exact issue and had been resolved with a new filter.
