My first ever dyson i used beko. Aunty got one in the 90s and she actually inherited a dc01 standard with ydk motor and she gave me her absolute. I loved it but the motor blew and i was only young so it went to the tip. Will get another to sit happily with my de stijl dc01!!!! :)

Wow it's actually quite rare for a DC01 to blow up, especially if it's the Ametek one!
DC14s are tanks, just need a slightly longer motor life. Do plastic parts often break on DC14s? Nope. DC41- Sexy looking futuristic and powerful machine. Just needs a better designed cleaner head wheel and cyclone clip along with a dense metal rod in the chassis.

It was an amtek parwaz, the fan came off the spindle and it overheated the motor. Them little hepa filters seem to get the motor very hot aswell.

I agree about the heat, my de stijl did that aswell and I see what you mean, its a shame

TBH I remove the HEPA filter when in use, it restricts the airflow by a surprising amount!

thanks for these invaluable guides - took my first DC01 apart today  - without breaking anything (that's a first!)
Now got to put it all back together again without having anything left over LOL
Caught the Dyson bug 2 years ago and the doctor can't do anything about it

Found out today a mate who goes to my school is selling a DC01 De Stijl - may be getting it hopefully!

And I thought I was the only Dyson Collector and Restorer at my school.. Learn something new everyday - and im rather happy to know that someone who I possibly see everyday (Havent spoke yet, but hoping too tomoz - monday) also restores dysons. Can't wait to find which one of the many kids he is and speak to him lol!  :))
