Thank you Beko1987, I had a 'first' shot yesterday, cable had been cut off! Major pain to get inside the cable rewind mechanism. I have two more to play with though and should get one decent one from all of them (I hope)

Hello, I bought a DC39 in the US and moved later to Brazil and Dyson doen’t have a repair service here. The thing is the original motor burned out after 4 years, so I waited until my next trip to the US and bought 2 new motors and HEPA filters (just in case), research online how to change it and voilá, all was great in the world again! 
Four months later, the second motor burned out and I tought it was odd because it was so soon, so surelly I did something wrong so I started researching again and came upon this post and I believe I discovered the issue.
In the picture bellow you have a black plastic piece that my DC39 doesn’t have. (I’m sure of it because in the first strip down there weren’t any spare parts left after I reassembled the machine)
Can you, please, tell me what it is and where can I buy it?
Thanks

That's the big rubber housing that sandwiches the motor into the housing, clips onto the top of the motor using the holes you can see. Did you take it off the old motor? Possibly a bit late if you didnt...

However that by itself wouldn't have caused the motor to burn out, although I'm amazed it didnt move about in the housing due to lack of clamping action!

Is the voltage and Hz of the supply the same between the USA and Brazil?

Send Mvacs a message (there'll be a contact us form on the main shop page) and point them here and see if they have a rubber they can post out to you!

Thanks! Yes the voltage and Hz are the same. The motor didn’t moved about in the housing because there are 2 “pins” on it where I attached the motor, as you can see in the picture.

Dupage Vacs in IL or Southern Vacuums in FL are closer and will likely have it.
