My Dyson 28c needs the power switch replacing, after removing every screw I can see I have split the case but something is stopping me removing the top casing to get to the switch. I cannot find any info on actually dismantling this model. There must be a screw I cannot see. HELP PLEASE - I have a replacement switch in my hand!

I googled “ how do I repair a Dyson DC 25 rotating head that no longer rotates”
Your site came up as one of the several options.
Thank you.

You’re absolutely right. Today I replaced the yolk wiring loom, well I took  the machine apart and rewired the yolk with a more substantial wire. It appears to have worked, the brush head was only working intermittently, now working well. Followed material on this site to do this. So great and thank you.

Hi!  🕵 I found you by accident. Don't you love Google! 😉 I hv a DC 15. I've had it about 5 or 6 years. My mother bought it brand new. Not sure when but I believe she had it as if not longer than myself. I've taken it apart 100 times to clean it. I went a little deeper this time as I had loaned it to a friend and was disappointed when I got it back. Anyway, I can't figure out how to get the brush bar motor back the way it was. Actually it's the wires. I can't get them to fit right. Usually I'd take pictures (I did, just not of the 1 thing I needed a picture of)  Anyone hv any ideas?
I just want my DC 15 back together so I can vacuum my house. 😬🤞😂

Welcome Abbi, make a fresh topic with more detail as the DC15 is a very complex machine.

Hi, found you on Google - where else? 

I have a SEBO X4 which, after being used for years, recently and without warning, appears to have burnt its motor out.  I bought a replacement motor from you which I fitted yesterday. 

Now I have a problem!!

Although the motor is spinning freely and it appears to work as long as there is no load on it, as soon as is it used on even a hard floor, so there is only a light load, there is a distinct burning smell as if the brushes are arcing badly. Using it briefly on a carpet makes it a lot worse.
 
I'm concerned that the burnt out motor was the symptom of another problem and unless that is sorted before we use the SEBO, this motor will burn out too.

There doesn't appear to be mechanical issues so this has become a real puzzle!

Does anybody have any ideas?

Hi,

I put "vintage vacuum cleaners" into a search engine, and this website came up.

I have a few old vacuum cleaners etc to dispose of , and I would like them to go to a collector if possible.

I can send details and pictures.

Regards.
Ed.

Found you via a bit of google and Youtube searching for info on refurbishing my DC14 Blitz and an old Vax121 that has given faithful service for years but now groaning a bit.  Hello there  :tiphat:
