Hello all,

I have a Dyson V8 that is not driving the motorhead.

The rollerbrush does not spin at all.

The motor runs properly, operating in both low and max speed.

I have attached working motorheads directly to the main body to take the wand out of the equation.

What component of the main body would be the cause of the problem?

ie. is there a particular circuit board that is the problem?

Would like someone to give me a precise answer to the problem so that I can source the correct parts for the repair.

Regards,

fbagnato

Have you tested continuity in the bin?

Hello MVacs,

Thanks for your reply.

Yes, I have tried different working dust bins so the problem is somewhere in the main body.

In this case, it's usual to change the motor body itself. Very few people repair them internally.

Hello MVacs,

Thanks for your reply.

I have a guy who would change internal parts but he didn't know exactly what the cause of the problem was.

I was trying to find out exactly what piece it would be that is causing the problem.

The motor itself is working perfectly on both speeds.

Do you know if there are multiple boards inside the main body and if so what board would control the power to the motorhead?

Regards,

Personally, I don't recall. We never open them. Sometimes it costs more in time to fix stuff like this than it would to replace it.
