DC04 Green & Lime will fade like an utter bastard, just sell it! 40/50 if it's nice and clean on facebook, cash in your hand!
DC14 Origin - Keep! I much prefer them over the clutched, their just so much better at grooming deep down! Ideal daily! (or 50 on fb etc)
DC33 - Possibly keep, not really worth much more than a 14 in the real world, because no one cares that it's newer etc. At that stage where the ones left are in either good condition or utterly trashed, probably worth keeping it
DC07 - What colour scheme is it?

Dyson DC07 / Re: New or refurbish?

You'll find step by step guides for both types of dc07 on here!

Combined with

Wash the sponge post filter, cage, main hose and the little hose underneath in the machine at 60 with your worst towels/bathmat etc, dry them, good as new!
New post filter and belt/clutch and brushroll will transform it!

I'm playing with an Animal Ball 2 at the minute, and whilst the carpet grooming performance is utterly amazing, both tool holders fall off all the time, it's a DC41 in drag, the blockage port is tricky to remove, it was clogged right through with xmas tree needles, the hose is SOOO heavy in your hand with that massive articulating phallus on the end and it's like pushing a Citroen AX across the floor, then you tilt it over just a fraction too far and WHOMPH, off it veers at a perfect 115 degree angle, taking your wrist with it.

I'd have a DC07 any day!

Or knock them to bits (handle splits) and I'll make one good one out of both and send you back the spares to put on the shop as stock

Better. I'll send you both down, make us a good one, breathe on the other motor, and the jobs a good one. I'll get the 2nd motor over to Massimo.

Packed and booked already.  :thumbsup:

This YouTube video shows the handle switch (and lack of a foot switch) on the US version, the Hoover Convertible.

From that brief glance the one with the hood on looks better, but the chassis on the other one seems to have better paint...

If both motors work then on the one without a hood, your 4 screws and unplugging things away from having it out! If you wash the bag then HAND WASH it only or the writing will vanish! Or as said, I'll happily minter up the remaining motor for Max and send it back to Manchester to be shipped onwards to foreign-shire!

I'd probably leave the handle switch as is myself. Interesting bit of info though, I didn't know that.

The reminder spurred me to check my two though, both motors run.........



I'll have the discussion with Mr Beko about the best way forward.

Not sure if the OP will need a new switch as well? IIRC, the 625 has a footswitch on the UK version, but a handle switch on the US ones. Never really understood why they were different.

Thanks parwaz and Dysonboy. I got time today to revisit this problem and was able to fix it. I found that I had already got the motor and motor housing together correctly and the catch was able to slide freely, but there was a lot of friction from the clutch cover, so I remove this (and some other stuff to get better access to it) and was able to reinstall it so that it ran smoothly. I also applied some silicone grease to the head pivot points and all this has done the trick.

Many thanks for your help and support.

All magnets in place and when the handle is up it sometimes sorts itself out by raising to the highest postion, stops the height motor, then after a few seconds it goes into the fail mode, stops the brush/vac motor and brush light flashes.

If I leave it in free air handle down it just runs up and down with the up light on all of the time.

One question on the Belt Sensor Unit. Is it spring loaded both directions. Mine appears to be quite free by about 1/2 a turn then if the brush is loaded it will only move 1/8 of a turn max against the spring. if two springs perhaps one of the springs broken?

Regards
