There was no problem with the contacts from the body to the front of the Bin, Im testing the Body Contacts.

This is the first time I have seen this problem - looks like there is no way of getting into the Body either as its probably just a component gone which would cost pennies no doubt :(
I was reading through the forum last night and you say that you dont repair these machines, I can see why now :(

The battery was good, customer didnt leave me a charger so waiting for them to bring it in..

there still fitted to appliances so must still be needed.
Just wondering.
Why did you bypass the supressor? what exactly does that so?

The RF surpessor is a remnant from the past, and stops interferance with analogue TV's and radio's. Not needed in this digital age.

What they DO do, after years of sitting dormant in lofts, garages and other damp places is degrade internally, short out and go pop. Plastic ones, like on old Electrolux's go POP and smell of burning. Metal ones, like on these go KABOOM as they swell alot more. Maybe not today, maybe not this year, but one day, they will go! Electrolux put them in the handle on the 500 series right under your hand, that's fun when that goes, have heard tales from collectors of soiled underwear when they go in use!

Vac 121's tend to slowly melt and trip the house breaker, then stink.

I remove them out of course now, and have had zero ill effects. Even my mums old HIFI on FM isn't affected (turning it up REALLY loud to hear it over the sound of the machine) so I guess it's a very historic thing.

You are testing at the body outputs and not at the outputs at the front of the bin?

And do we know the battery is perfect?
Hi All, I have a V6 Hand Held in - Dyson sent out a replacement body to get over the problem of no power to Brush Head but both bodies have the same problem.

With no trigger pulled I am getting 1.8v at the contacts on the body dropping eventually to zero, with the trigger pulled I get a short circuit ! Does anybody have any ideas?

Looking after your Dyson / Re: Using WD40 on Dysons

The clue is in the name WD stands for Water Displacing.
It dries out and leaves a surface deposit which is insulating so DO NOT USE IT ON ELECTRICAL CONTACTS!
Dries out - so not much use for long term lubrication  :(
Bearings can have seals OR shields.....seals seal the balls and races so no grease/oil can get in or out.
Shields shield the balls/races from foreign matter getting in.  Seals and shields can be removed and sometimes can be put back in if carefully removed.    Best do an internet search on "bearing seals" and "bearing shields" to see how they fit and work and get the full information.
Grease is a mixture that contains oil, hence when the, lubricating, oil has dried up the rest of the material is dried up in appearance and has no further lubricating properties.
Looking up bearing lubrication on the internet will also tell you what to use, not by make but by type. and will give you brain failure or at least a headache.  ;D

You're liking the Sebos aren't you?  :-*

More than Miele that is for sure. It was a straight swap. Well that is what I am telling my wife  ;)
