could imagine after seeing the fluff build up in some head assemblies, if using a carbon film resistor and it started to glow !
Isn't the resistor actively an inductive choke anyway ? i would rather leave it out, fit a link - than fit the wrong type and let the motor take the brunt at startup.

I have accounts with both cpc/farnell and rs, rs free post and next day delivery.

near enough and 5w

RS components is the other, probably safer source.

Don't overlook the fact that the original from farnell has a flameproof coating, and should really be wirewound due to the surge caused by the motor starting up.
Think the dc24 head pcb uses same resistor.

That reminds me Nick, send me your address please and i will return that dc40 erp control pcb, which has had the fet i think it was replaced.

Clutch belts 2.25

Standard belts 2.99

Spend 30 for free delivery.

Better pricing if you spend over 200, info here.

Cheers for that mate, filled me in!

Thanks Tim, I just replaced the motor in a customers DC25 and noticed this Resistor had blown.
I dont fancy buying a whole new board for the sake of a few pence - the only problem for me now is where to buy a 1 Ohm resistor since Maplin closed.

I like to keep these older machines alive, it makes my work more interesting :)

Hi Nik, this was quite a while ago (and we now have a new vacuum) but it seems it was the one I originally thought and should be labelled "WP4S 1R0 5%", so is 1Ohm (though I originally called it 1k :S).
The exact one is available here: https://uk.farnell.com/welwyn/wp4s-1rja2/resistor-1r-4-watt-5/dp/1219252?st=wp4s (ignore the picture) though of course any similar one will do.

Did we establish the value of the R1 as I am in exactly the same position, the value has blown off of the resistor :(

I'd agree with the above. With most Dyson motors of the DC04/07/14 era, it's generally not worth it. With Sebo motor prices though, it's worth a try with just new brushes.
