Cylinder & Canister Dysons / Re: Have Dyson dumped their 'cinetic science'?
« Last post by MVacs on May 22, 2018, 09:50:34 PM »
They say they are only moving forward with corded models but I haven't seen mention of dumping the Cinetic (filter free) models.

Having no filter was never the best idea anyway.............

Dyson DC07 / Re: How I repair DC07 Hoses

Glad it's helping! At first I was a bit skeptical of the longevity of the repair, but I've never had one back that I have done!

Dyson DC07 / Re: Question regarding the "fin type" part to the rod DC07

They are a pain in the arse, I remove them and never re-fit them!

All the brightwork got boxed up, and sent to Dorian, who is HooverLux on youtube, and a pretty bloody top bloke, who collects Kirby's. And as he collects Kirbys, he knows about polish and such, so worked his MAGIC

Once the parts came back, they really did look astonishing. I had the top motor cover on my desk at work all day!

Fun over, we can lay everything out

And begin re-assembly. Which is where I am going to leave it for tonight, as I need to get to bed. Stay tuned for the re-assembly and testing, and to see if Stuart himself is happy with the results!

Bye for now

We are disassembled now! The bearings got a good soak in Tardis, then Petrol, which cleaned them up a treat, with a bit of brushing when the solution got changed to get the gritty stuff out

Turns out they are SKF bearings!

ila_rendered

I then discovered 2 more tiny grub screws

ila_rendered

Which came from here

ila_rendered

Which enabled the handle bail to be removed from the main chassis

ila_rendered

So all this could be boxed up

And the last picture in the last post shows the carbon brush holders and their insulating sleeves removed, a tiny grub screw holding them in!

Back to the top of the motor housing now, and the bearing itself has a protective cover, held in with the armature screw

ila_rendered

And it cane be removed as well, making the pair free!

ila_rendered

The motor serial tag was removed

ila_rendered

As was the exhaust vent diffuser, which rather than being a silly bit of foam like you get nowadays is actual metal

ila_rendered

The motor housing is/was sealed to the main chassis with sealant. This was not as flexible as it once was so was scraped off

ila_rendered

We jump back to the internal handle wiring and unscrew the wires from the plug

ila_rendered

Then clean the field coil

Actual proper ball bearings!

ila_rendered

And the plate is empty!

ila_rendered

Crikey, my camera is going very black where I hold it now...

ila_rendered

But before we can remove the coil, we need to remove the handle bail plug to pull it all through

ila_rendered

The wires are soldered to the pins, and one snapped as soon as I looked at it funny

ila_rendered

But, because this is being re-wired, I cut the other one off as well!

ila_rendered

The protecting spring can be removed from the wires now

ila_rendered

And the field coil unbolted and withdrawn

ila_rendered

The bakelite carbon brush caps are unscrewed (the brushes came out from inside when we lifted the armature out)
