DC50 brush bar wonít stop spinning!
« on: October 31, 2021, 09:27:05 AM »
Hi all

My DC50 brush bar is spinning continuously.
It keeps going when engaged in the upright position when using the hose and when vacuuming normally. The switch by the power button isnít doing anything when pressed.

Any ideas please? Iíve googled and searched the forum but issues mostly seem to be with it not spinning rather than spinning too much!

Iím reasonably experienced in working with dysons but wondered if anyone had any pointers before I go searching for the problem.

Thanks in advance

Just by way of an update in case it helps anyone else, I dismantled my machine and tested the upright switch which was fine.

I ordered a second hand replacement PCB from eBay at £10 and fitted it and all is working fine now. Glad to have avoided dysonís ďweíll fix it for £99Ē unhelpful approach!
