DC17 motor
« on: April 14, 2017, 04:22:48 PM »
Hi all,

Found a DC17 with a dead motor (per the user).  They have already disassembled it (oh boy) and tested (?) the motor to confirm it's dead.

So, assuming they're absolutely right, which vac motors are interchangable with it?  It seems they go for $70 online and I can't see spending that much on a hunch.  I might just clean it up and get it ready for when I find a donor....  unless, of course, one of you collectors want it.

I have an incomplete DC17 with a motor but no way of knowing if it works.

I require a few parts.

Please let me know

Many thanks

The item I'm looking at is here:
https://philadelphia.craigslist.org/for/6086011915.html

I could get it for about $20USD, however I did some quick shipping calcs and it would cost ~$500 to ship!   :D :o :o :o :o :boggleeye:

edit: sorry, I don't know how to convert USD to crowns or gold coins or cups of tea or whatever it is you people use for currency.

Search google - (However much) USD to UK pounds and it will give you the conversion

BTW  - 1 USD = 0.80 UK Pound

Send it to me ;D  I'm dying for one

Chop off a Dc07/14/33 motor spindle and fit it to the DC17? They look similar besides the spindle

Also, how much harder is it to strip down than a Dc07?
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.

I would sell 99% of my many vacuums in my collection for a DC17.

I would do many things for a DC17.

If anyone is willing to get me a DC17, holla at me ;D

I CANT STRESS ENOUGH

So what you're saying is: don't spend the $20 for the used 17 with the blown motor because they're trash and suck and should die in a fire?

So why not use a dc08/19 motor so no spindle chopping.  :grinn:
