We (a charity) got given one of these. This seems to have **two** switches.
I pushed the visible switch, a green pilot lights, motor doesnt run. There is
a row of buttons; end one labelled "reset". when I push that the motor runs.
There are some other buttons; AFAIK none of these does anything. There is
a row of lights; I think they are to show how strongly it is sucking. When it is
running they are all  on & there is no visible way to make it suck more gently.

Please is this normal? Thank you.
Cylinder & Canister Dysons / Re: DC05 clear, P for Panasonic

The scrap DC05 arrived and itís was a complete body, but in a neglected state. Letís say as French as a 2CV in a old barn ..

Long story short: disappointed at first it did not have the YDK motor and plastics, but thrilled that the Panasonic motor still works fineÖ NEVER expected that to be honest, and the seller could not have tested it either since the powercord was cut off  :'(

Ready to put a DC05 back to working order.
Anyone in need of DC05 clear parts?  :king:
Check where the dust goes into the machine, there's a flap there that gets stuck (pulsing means the machine has found a fault, then reboots to see if the fault has gone)

I've had faults with the head cause issues like this, does it still do it with just the machine and no extension tube/attachments?
I still prefer to buy such things new, and they should be of high quality. Also, I usually call the cleaning service monthly to clean the entire apartment.
However, this is how I treat other everyday issues. For example, when I needed to find out how much to snake a toilet, I immediately found an excellent company that deals with these issues. I ordered the toilet installation right away so as not to think about this problem later. It seems to me that this greatly simplifies life.

I seem to have a very strange fault with this cleaner.
The cleaner started pulsing so the pre filter was cleaned.
A few weeks later the battery died and was replaced,
on reassembly it started pulsing again.
This time the unit was stripped down and the cyclone
was found to be filthy and was thoroughly cleaned.
the pre filter was renewed and the motor filter cleaned.
after careful reassembly the problem persists!
the cleaner will work/run if you lift up / remove
the round pre filter,as soon as you  let it go
the suction seals it and the motor pulses again.
I cannot understand how/why the filter is
stifling the airflow?
I am tempted to drill several holes in the
top of the filter body to let the air into
the cleaner.
I have tried removing the filter fabric and
putting just the filter body back but
that does not  work either.

Any thoughts please
DC11 still available on the above link.

Faulty brush roll motor. They damage the PCB too.
