Dc40 brushbar motor
« on: July 04, 2020, 01:30:08 PM »
Hi
Completely disassembled and cleaned my dc40 brush head. Had lots of hair in roller spindles. Then the cog case was full of burnt hardened hair. Cleaned and reassembled but now brushbar cuts out every 30 seconds or so. Hose works fine. An ideas

Lay vac down, turn on so brushroll is spinning, leave for a minute or two - if brushroll doesn't cut out then most likely the yoke cable.
If brush roll does stop when machine isnt moving then motor possibly at fault, if it's an erp version with the red slide on head it could be erp pcb in ball too.
The only way to fail is not to try.

hi thanks for that, funnily enough today it ran totally fine with the brushbar slider thingy not set to max, brush roller didnt stop once while doing whole house, so only when sliders set to max suction is it an intermittent problem, misses did say switch off switch on sorted it
