Dyson DC05 motor
« on: February 27, 2013, 05:48:31 pm »
I changed the motor on my DC05 about 6 months ago after  the old one eventually burnt itself out.
I have tried using it a couple of times recently and it has worked intermittently. I thought it was the fuse as when I changed it, the machine worked again.  However it has stopped working all together now.
I have taken it apart down to the motor and all of the connections are in place and there appears to be no signs of burning or smell.  When I tested the motor when the Dyson was stripped down, there was a ticking sound briefly before it stopped again.
Does anybody have any ideas what is wrong with the old work horse and how to fix it?

Have you bench tested the motor out of the machine? If not, do that first.
