First Generation "The Ball" Dysons. / Re: DC15 v DC07
« Last post by Parwaz7862 on Today at 02:34:30 PM »
Yep, as MVacs mentioned, the DC07 is Dyson's most powerful sucking upright.

If you want best carpet cleaning rersults from a Dyson, a DC07 still is a good choice (especially if it has no brush control), however a newer ball Dyson like the DC41/DC55/DC40/ DC75 ERP models (with the blue brushrolls in them) have outstanding performance. They agitate the carpet (literally vibrate the deep down grit out) and the design of the head along with the suction is why it's one of Dyson's best vacuums, especially at cleaning.

The hose suction is basic, like the DC15 but design is everything.
I had one like two years ago with a DC34, was pretty decent actually but nothing too special
Thanks for your help. It doesn't look like there's a way to disconnect the red buttons bit (on the right of your top image). It has a 90 rotation mechanism at that end, but that's all I can see.

I looked up the part number 966600-01 that you recommended - the Dyson website says it's for the DC39 and doesn't list any uprights in the compatible machine section. Will this definitely fit the DC25? Thanks again.

Do you think renewing the brush rollers would help my dc15? just done another test and the 15 is better but 07 pulled a "few" bit a fine dirt and fluff due to the forward stroke digging into the carpet making it quite hard to push but believe its rollers in the carpet is giving an advantage.

Does anyone know the correct MM of roller brush that is found on a new dc15 roller? and even a new roller would help agitation of only a few MM of use difference?

looking at the newer Dysons they have some sort of rubber seal on the baseplate to aid suction, can mine have something missing letting the sucked air out the sides of the baseplate? or is it the stainless plate only that serves as the connection between the surface(think it is)

one main difference i have seen if i haven't missed anything is the dc07 does not have the front large hole in the baseplate that is served for large debris, the dco7 has none so the main suck is through the roller, the dc15 must be letting a lot of suction power out of this outlet (rubber front of baseplate)

I think looking at this its for the pushing effect of debris in a forward motion as this would get sucked up the front large hole, has anyone blocked this hole to get a better suction?

just taped it up and it seems its sticking to the carpet more.. carpet too clean though to get a result
Finding it tough to take some jobs on with the dyson cordless machines - due to price of genuine heads.

Need to keep prices reasonable - and seen these copies available...


Anyone have any experiences using them ?
Dyson DC14, DC17, DC27, DC28 and DC33 / Re: Dc27 problem

Test the switch with a multi-meter, and if that's OK, test the two wires running down towards the motor which will indicate if the problem is the motor.

In case of need, there is a proper multi-meter tutorial >>here<<.
Dyson DC14, DC17, DC27, DC28 and DC33 / Dc27 problem

Hi guys,
My dc27 will not turn on! I've had a multimeter on the power cable and fuse is fine too. I'm just wondering is there any sort of check (with multimeter or other tool) that I can perform on the on/off switch to make sure that's not the problem?

Or is it that the DC07 is one of the best dysons for suction?

For raw suction you'll struggle to beat a DC07.
My DC07 glues itself to the carpet, wand tries to suck my hand away. My DC14 is also good suction but nothing beats the DC07 when it comes to suction.

thanks for al the info, i did wash the filter as a stop gap measure and it did improve the 15 but i say your right the DC07 is a beast compared to it, seem strange as the later ones are supposed to have better cyclone design.. 14 and on etc.

i really like the look of the 15 though and it glides so well on a hard floor

can you do any mods to the 15 to make it perform better?
First Generation "The Ball" Dysons. / Re: DC25 adapter to fit v7 tools
« Last post by MVacs on September 16, 2018, 08:41:08 PM »
So you have bought this:


Which is 967522-01 and is for the CY23/Light Ball/Big Ball, etc., and not the V7/V8/V10 although they look the same. And certainly isnt going to fit a DC25 out of the box.

Nobody has yet made a dedicated adaptor to adapt the two sizes of so-called "quick release" red button tools to earlier machines.

But I'll double check if anything does fit that and report back further tomorrow.

Does the red button tool fitting pull out of that tool at all or is it locked in?

BTW, for the DC25 you want 966600-01. Which is this.
