UP24 Motor Fitment
« on: June 01, 2022, 10:33:05 PM »
Good evening, Brits. It's me, your cool American cousin. You can tell my vacuums are American because they're all powered by gasoline and traumatic brain injury.

I bought a UP24 from overseas with the plan to convert it to a hotrod 120V motor using scrap parts from trash-picked DC40s and DC50s. My question is: What is the actual form factor of the motor? Does it closely match the predecessors in the DC41-Ball-Ball2 line (130-150 mm), or is it more like a DC40 or DC50 miniature (108 mm) body? From what I'm learning online, it should be a 700W DC40/50-like motor, but I just want to be sure I'm ready. I have a 40, 41 and 50 motor onhand, but I'd prefer to sacrifice the 41 because the chassis is trashed.

Secondly, does it share a brushbar PCB form factor with any of the other models? I'm guessing it uses a DC41-like board based on the size of the ball, but I want to be sure.

If anyone has these parts lying around and could provide pictures and measurements, I'd be hugely thankful. I'll share the project here as I work.

update for the unlikely browser: I've disassembled a UP24 completely and discovered the motor is the same form factor as the DC50 and UP15 Small Ball in the US. That means the max power is 760W whether it's UK or US power. The bucket is an entirely different design from other Ball 2s, but I'm investigating how I might squeeze something else in.

We haven't done enough of these yet to have shoehorned different motors in them. Dyson are still sucking up the warranty on them as they get five years here.

You're a pioneer!
