The World's #1 Vacuum Cleaner Advice, Repair, Discussion & Information Forum
Due to changes in the industry, our DC04, DC07, DC14, DC27 and DC33 motors now have three buying options:-Budget: These are what the suppliers call 'made to a price'. These are made to serve the bulk market where people buy on price only (eBay and Amazon for example). I am not terribly fond of them, but some people want cheap. Premium: These are the super quality motors we have always used and sold that are made in the USA. As the pound is poor against the dollar at the moment, the price of these has risen a little of late. These are the ones we recommend. These are the ones we use on our own machines. Genuine: While we are adding options, we decided to add genuine in there as well. For those that prefer a genuine part that comes in a Dyson box, we have now made the most popular YV2200 motor available from that page too. It is normally impossible to judge the quality of what you are going to buy online when buying a motor for your Dyson (because you don't know what the seller will send you), and buying on price alone can be a false economy as this article suggests: Cheap Dyson Motors - 150 Reasons Not To Buy One. So we have decided to completely demystify it by offering three variants with honest descriptions. We think it better the end user can make an informed choice when buying a Dyson motor. We expect other sellers will follow our example.
which is the longest lasting?
I found motors on eBay for like £15-£25 brand new from people such as "Dysondoctor" etc. Would you recommend these? I last bought one of these in 2009 for a DC07. Not sure if anything has changed since then though.Thanks

Most of the stuff on eBay is made to a price so the sellers can compete with each other.

He used to sell motors of the type with no external TOC that we wont keep. Since then, someone else has been trying to steal his name on eBay, so caveat emptor. The thing about anything you buy on eBay is that there is 13% off the top for selling fees. Take a cheap motor, knock off 13% fees, £3-£4 to post it, some VAT, some profit and what are you left with as a cost price? Not much. Like anything, you can have cheap or good, and you must choose which.
The original Dyson Doctor you refer to was based on the Isle of Wight.
The Dyson Doctor UK you mentioned is actually part of LM Electrical who have been on eBay for quite a long time. I also think that both Dyson Doctor UK and LM Electrical are in some way connected with Qtex as I ordered something from Dyson Doctor UK and on the Invoice the return Address is Denton, Manchester. Isnt that where Qtex are based?
Would love one! Are they brand new?
Also is the suction the same as a Dc07 motor? I know they look similar with a larger fan liunlike a standard 04 but have a lower wattage :/
