I found you guys through Google - think I needed a DC07 part in that awful Clic pink but wasn't having any luck on eBay as bit of an uncommon colour.

Tried looking for somewhere else with sensible prices and found your online shop with the part I needed. Was then only a matter of time before I came across the forum!

Would have searched Dyson parts, you weren't at the top of results so it took a few clicks to find you.

 :thumbsup:

that awful Clic pink

For anyone that doesn't know about the awful Clic pink, here is a picture I took in the shop of one last year.

[attachimg=1]

 :sick0012:

I think they were a special edition with part of the profits going to breast cancer research.

A couple of months ago, a lady called our shop and asked for one of those "three tone Barbie pink Dysons" that she couldn't find anywhere. Apparently, she was a girlie pink girl. Her house was pink, her car was pink. She wanted a pink Dyson too!

We had a couple in the back, and we rebuilt one for her. She was overjoyed when she got it!  :icon_nod:

Thanks for the feedback Russ. Anyone else reading, please chip in and tell us how you found us.

I found the site originally from a link from the Dyson medic site.

Then I found the parts shop, and we ended up buying a recon machine back end of last year. Which is still going strong.....

 :thumbsup:

PS, that pink one is yakky.

Hi

Found this forum through searching Google and then Dyson Medic.

Had a blockage in my DC25 switch hose. Managed to get the switch hose out, but for the life of me I cannot get the damned thing back in!  I cannot seem to get the 2 'lugs' to fit back in their respective holes. Can anyone suggest how to do this. I'm definately doing something wrong here?  Not the easiest of the hose pieces to work with.
Many thanks. Daisy

 :thumbsup:   I found your site doing a search for dyson dc07 schematics.  After 6 years my vacuum wold no longer turn on and after looking it overI felt for sure I could fix it myself. I ordered the parts and Angus Blacks workshop manual a few days ago, but I still want that schematic so I'm back to you forum today to print it off.

I love my Dyson and will never be without one so I think it is only right that I learn to keep it in good condition.  Since I invested in the repair manual I told my husband he will need to find me a non working vacuum to work on next!

I have a DC08 Animal Pro with one of those rare "Panasonic-style" motors inside. The motor gave up, so I started to search for a solution on the internet. After I Googled something like DC08 motor replacement I found this forum.
So now I have a forum, but no solution yet  :reading:

It would be great if someone here could steer me in the right direction. I do not view myself as a stupid man however, tearing into such a machine without first soliciting wisdom from those older and wiser would prove me to be wrong.

This is a great forum.
Things like this are really examples of the internet at its best.

With the help of user forums, I have successfully tackled many projects in the last 10 years that I never would have attempted before the internet era.
There's so much knowledge and experience out there (on nearly every topic), and so many people willing to help.

Many thanks to all of you who host, moderate, and participate.

Hi All

Started playing with Dysons sometime back because 1) They are generally really good 2)They are far too expensive for a mere mortal like me 3:) I/We love buying them cheap at car boots  4) I /we love taking things apart  5) love the end result when you bring one back from the dead to a near as new condition

I used to do most of this by myself, but we had a friend who was severely paralysed by a car accident and my wife used to help him rebuild things ( like Dysons ) that he couldn't because of his disability so now we are a husband and wife team  and I tend to do all the electrical side as that is my line of work. I wonder if there are any more out there like us.. ....  Oh it was a link from someones reply on here ....well you asked......

Welcome Spike.  :tiphat:

I think there are many who do the same. Some of the parts orders we get are mixed bits for half a dozen different machines.

Whenever I go on a car boot sale, there is always some bloke that runs past me clutching an old Dyson in each hand.  :chuckle:

Although, some of the machines I see on car boot sales that are allegedly 'refurbished' are truly shocking cobbled together crap.

Hi found this link on ebay looking for a wand for a dc15 animal my wife has worn the end which I now know to be a collar down to about 3/4 inch she prefers to just use the tip rather than fit a tool and of course has never read the instructions of any gadget in her life so no tools fit nd i seem to be spending an awful lot of time and money picking up the pieces of failed products so a collar at a tenner sounds a lot better than a wand at thirty quid.
So saw the collar advertised on ebay and need to ascertain if it will fit the dc15 anybody know ?

I know an aftermarket wand tip/collar is available for the DC14 but it won't fit the DC15.

The DC15 wasn't a huge hit for Dyson so there isn't really much of a market for spares for this model I'm afraid.

If it is the DC15 you have, it will have to be a new wand unless you're lucky enough to come across someone with a broken wand but salvageable tip that they'd be happy to sell.

Hallo to everybody!

I think I found the link to this forum in another one, Dysonmedic. To be honest it seems to me that Dysonforum gives better answers, with more details about the "hardware" . That's why I registered here. I bought a few months ago a Dyson DC25, from Amazon UK. It is a model not commercialised in Italy (there is DC24 here). I would like yo find out why. Anyway the price was reaaally interesting, and as I appreciated very much the air blade driers (quite original and powerful) I decided to give a chance to Dyson. I come from a Worwerk vacuum cleaner, and I must say that they know how to make a vacuum cleaner. Only, they cannot sell it at 2000 euros!!
Bye!

Hi-  found you via Google while searching for a source for new brushes for a Panasonic SDS1301GND 120V motor out of a DC25.  Can't seem to find anywhere-- or at least what I've been looking at on-line doesn't appear to be the same.  Any help-- or should I post a request on the Ball forum?

Thanks!

Hi-  found you via Google while searching for a source for new brushes for a Panasonic SDS1301GND 120V motor out of a DC25.  Can't seem to find anywhere-- or at least what I've been looking at on-line doesn't appear to be the same.  Any help-- or should I post a request on the Ball forum?

Thanks!

Welcome Bill, yes post a fresh topic in Ball forum to keep it in one place.  ;)

New member,

Have a Dyson contra-rotator washing machine.

Machine was good initially until it failed just out of guarantee, originally purchased in '04, Machine was 'ramping' (a fault when going into contra rotate mode) Dyson repaired it - virtually gutted and completely rebuilt and it worked fine till last week, now it blows all the circuits when switched on so has a fault somewhere!  :(

Found you via eBay

I needed a replacement vac for upstairs (just to save carrying the main one up and down), and bought a DC07 off eBay. Good buy too - all worked OK, but I thought I'd change the filters and found you guys via Google.

Glad I did, but it did get me hooked on the idea of repairing and refurbishing Dysons. Just bought a DC01 for £1, bit dirty and in need of TLC, but I'll get there.

So I now have three Dysons. I wonder where it will end!

On ebay..after 10 years of fighting with 6 dysons (I have to have a new one every few years), asking millions of unanswered questions to random people everywhere, and dismantling my dysons till the point of no recognition to try to fix them myself.  My hubby just loved when I cried cause I broke it more lol.  Anyway, I feel at home now.  Im so relieved.  Shopping for a new dyson again and so many sites give mixed info on the models it is as if they dont know what is what.  Some models come with an accessory and the exact same model sold by another seller doesnt have it..why is that.  Just dumb.

Got the D24 from freecycle, needs a bit of work on it. Ended up getting Dyson out for £79 to service it. So a Dyson for that price is ok, I say.

Don't know really why they got rid of it. Just been serviced. New filters, new pipe on the side which had a hole in it which I hadn't noticed, and a new front bit with the motor in it. As new! Sure original freecycler could have done that, but might have been frightened by fact it was just out of guarantee. DOB Feb 2008 apparently.

Hello There.
I found this forum whilst searching for some direction on the reassembly of my 11 year old Dyson cd11 canister cyclone.  I have disassembled and cleaned it. Now there are two spring loaded pieces of plastic that need to be re-assembled properly in order for me to carry on.  I understand the placement of the dogleg piece with the short spring. It's the long round ended piece with the longer spring that I can not for the life of me get back into place.  I'm assuming that it runs perpendicular to the dogleg and somehow fits inside the button that holds the dust bin onto the cyclone assembly.  I'm hoping someone on this forum may have been down this road before.

Hi all,

I found your very helpful site via Google, I was typing last night and used the phrase 'Thermal switch not working for city dyson' as I have one and every time I used it [only praps used it 20 times from new] it would cut out. The search brought me here to an excellent strip down/rebuild page, I have followed some of the advice and spent all day taking my DC26 City Dyson to bits washing it and then reassembling it I now have to wait for my filters to dry before testing it out. fingers toes and everything else crossed that it sorts the problem!

oh and btw I also have two DC07 Animals which I fully intend to have to bits and see if I can sort the problem that I have with one of them, [maybe interchange bits from one to the other?]

Ooof,  well done on stripping a 26 city! Not the easiest first machine to dive into.

Was anything amiss that was causing the thermal cutout to go? Were the filters dirty?

Dc07s are easier,  all the parts fit each other (well,  apart from the clutch part but the cleaner heads swap around easily)

Hi Beko,

The pre motor filter door was stuck [and still is very stiff] on the DC26 [and much to my shame the filter was very dirty] I knew that from trying to use it before that it'd praps work for 3 mins then cut out. I also tried to disassemble the cyclone, but couldn't for the life of me get the damned handle off, so resorted to a different tack, wash the damned thing whole [after all I had nothing to lose, right?] I can't see anything that would cause the door to be stiff, so am a little confused by that!.

I have two DC07's [Animals] one I have a problem with the motor [making a really odd noise when switched on] and the other one the brush bar sometimes works and sometimes doesn't, also the cowling? that you put your foot on [to get the machine from upright] is very very stiff, have no idea about that! [multifloor] so I was thinking that maybe I could take apart that machine first with the dodgy motor/noise and see if I can do anything with that.

:)

Hi Babooshka: If you have a look in Manchester vacs shop, they sell an excellent book by Angus Black. It tells you all about how to strip & repair the DC07.

Welcome to the Forum by the way.

Through tireless dc17 absolute animal searches via Google. I have one of the pink cancer commerative dc07 in addition to the dc17. Both of which I love! It's absurdly difficult to locate much on the 17 beyond the common filter, belt, or reset of brush bar though.

Had my trustworthy dc01 since time began. Very reliable, no breakdowns until last Sunday 25th Oct. when it started to cut-out while in use. Started to 'jiggle' the mains lead and it re-started up. Did this several times until it refused to re-start. To answer the initial question as to how I discovered your web site, I Googled Dyson dc01 info etc. and arrived at your website. Downloaded the 'exploded view' but not too helpful as several members have stated it would be helpful if a description of the 'ringed' components was shown.
This is my first Forum, I am a mature male and look forward to receiving help and also offering help when possible.

Hi   
Found the Dyson forum from a search on google.
I was looking for information about my DC04 absolute bought in 1999. Still going strong but had a problem with the main hose.  Searched the advice boards and all solved. Very helpful and spent far too long looking through all the advice, which inspired me to fit new filters and bottom hose.  Working like new!  Thanks

I am particularly interested in dyson washing machines
but have to trawl through all pages of postings  to get washing machine discussions
if postings were fully grouped by model number be it vacuum cleaner or washing machine it would be a lot easier to use

Hello,
I typed 'dyson dc02' into Google......
Very stupidly, I vacuumed up a small amount of brick dust and a few minutes later an awful grinding sound and horrible smell came from the cleaner.......I fear I've buggered the motor up!!
Looking on eBay for a replacement Dyson I decided I'd better check out the spec on my dc02 - and that's when I found this site and realised maybe a repair was possible  :grinn: Despite weighing a ton I love this cleaner as it actually worked well until I killed it!
Having watched your tutorial I reckon I can probably manage this as long as no soldering is involved, and from what I could see it looked like an easy connection. 
Title: Re: New Members - How did you find us?
Post by: beko1987 on June 28, 2016, 01:48:41 AM

Post by: beko1987 on June 29, 2016, 01:08:21 AM
New filters and new motor will do 60/70% of this,  and if you fancy a full teardown wash and polish theres a stripdown thread in the dc02 section!

Thanks for the welcome. My Dyson DC14 All Floors is just really dusty and smelly now, despite washing filters. Now the long hose has split, so I have ordered a new hose, pre-motor filter and post-motor filter pad from Manchester Vacs, who were very helpful. I hope the new parts may sort out the problem. Was thinking of buying a new Dyson but the attitude of customer services today has made me think I won't.

Welcome to the site.  :tiphat:

If you do get round to considering a new machine, I'd take a look at a Sebo (http://-https://manchestervacs.co.uk/DysonForum/index.php/topic,2161.0.html) over a new Dyson.

You don't need a new machine! If it still smells musty with the new filters, spend an afternoon following my rebuild guide and it will be as new! Both smell wise and performance wise

I prefer old dyson machines to Sebo, but I prefer Sebo to new Dysons...

that awful Clic pink

For anyone that doesn't know about the awful Clic pink, here is a picture I took in the shop of one last year.

(Attachment Link)

 :sick0012:

I think they were a special edition with part of the profits going to breast cancer research.

A couple of months ago, a lady called our shop and asked for one of those "three tone Barbie pink Dysons" that she couldn't find anywhere. Apparently, she was a girlie pink girl. Her house was pink, her car was pink. She wanted a pink Dyson too!

We had a couple in the back, and we rebuilt one for her. She was overjoyed when she got it!  :icon_nod:

Thanks for the feedback Russ. Anyone else reading, please chip in and tell us how you found us.
I think they were Cancer and Leukemia in Children limited edition

Hi

Just signed up as we just had our first Dyson disaster and found this site via a Google search looking for some info.  For information, I Googled "can I fit a Dyson Cinetic cyclone to a non Cinetic model?" and you were about 5 down on the list if that helps. ;)

Anyway, having had a look around so far, there is some very interesting info.  I've already got a few questions, but I'll wait until I've had a good look before posting.

Through  internet while searching for pair of new carbon brushes for my 1980 Hoover TurboPower Junior U1100. UNfortunately I still could note find a pair. Any help??

Post by: beko1987 on October 29, 2017, 12:12:33 PM
Hi! Good luck finding some, your probably more likely to find a used but good pair! If it helps your Google fu, they might be listed under CAR20, VC143 or the OE hoover part number was 09021627 which is what the largest spares place used to list them as (they may still be going, but I don't have an account).

Good luck! I may have some somewhere, but have no idea where, but if you get stuck, shout and I'll have a look!

Well daughter gave me her old DC25 it wouldn’t stand up so I had to strip it down, then found the hose too inflexible for better half to extend so I did a search and found YOU. Wish I had earlier as it would have helped with the first prob. No sweat though as I’m a retired engineer ( fishing Industry)

I have 2 Dyson DCO5's and both have broken cable rewind units. This seems to be the site to help me with the repairs rather than replacements. I look forward to insights into this problem.

Yep, there's two types of 05 cable rewind and a how to here for at least one of them! Welcome

 I have never seen anything on repairing the cable rewind just replace it. At 25 to 35 UK that is a heavy hit.
 I did it & it now works fine. All it needs is to rewind the spring onto the smaller wheel and then allow the cable to rewind itself.
Hope this helps.

WOW!!

What a brilliant forum  :bow:

Found you simply by googling my DC40 brush bar not working.

Would have wasted money on at least a new head motor until I found out on here about the inherent fault on these where the wires are actually clean cut, somehow?  :'(

Anyway, using my trusty soldering iron, heat shrink tubing and a lot of cursing, thanks to beko1987's incredible pictorial stripdown I've got ours running for now until I get a new loom. Just need to find out what is cutting through the wires...
