Iím not aware anybody has detailed and photographed the process of stripping that down.

I know we have one or two in the workshop that need it doing from time to time. It doesnít seem to take very long or cause any problems, so it canít be terribly complex. They are usually only a spring and a seal that gets muck trapped in them.

Removing the HEPA filter is something that is covered in several topics here. Search CRU, I seem to recall some guy used that term and put quite a detailed explanation.

Cylinder & Canister Dysons / DC39 need exploded view and info for motor bypass valve
« Last post by sofasurfer on September 27, 2020, 05:20:17 AM »
DC39. I have the same issue as people in the follow 2 threads....loss of suction and popping noise caused by the motor bypass valve.

https://manchestervacs.co.uk/DysonForum/index.php/topic,4198.msg33073/highlight,dc39.html#msg33073

I have eliminated the possibility of blockages back to the motor. I was thinking maybe the hepa filter was plugged but not I read that this is never the problem. Thats as far as I have gotten and I have not seen anything that resembles a bypass valve. Although I have disassembled back to the hepa filter I have not taken the hepa filter out as I can't figure out how. I see that there are 2 white tabs but they do not move.

Can anyone supply me with a exploded view that shows the valve and offer mt any other help?

Thanks.

There was an advert for this in today's Guardian. If you believe the advert, it is a very
good machine. Please does anybody know good or bad things about it? Thank you, Mark

Sebo Vacuum Cleaners / Re: What is the magnet by the PSU for? Sebo X4

That magnet activates a reed switch that raises the brush/nozzle all the way up, when the handle is in the up and locked position. For example, when the extension hose is being used. Notice the position of the magnet when the handle is up and locked, it is in close proximity to the reed switch on the power supply board.

What John said.  :icon_nod:

And welcome to the site, John.  :tiphat:

While I am still in Sebo mode, can anyone tell me what the small magnet is for? The one next to the power supply board?
It doesn't seem to do anything as there is no sensor associated with it. I have read that various faults are cured if the magnet is put back in position after falling off.

I assume it is a ferrite magnet but have not checked. Maybe I have misinterpreted the posts that I have read? It niggles if I can't understand something like this!

Thanks in advance,

Andrew.

That Vulcano is a very old model showing normal signs of age, wear and tear.

None of those things will impact the performance terribly. Vacuums are not designed to be absolutely air tight.

Sebo Vacuum Cleaners / SEBO K series

I bought another "knackered" machine.
Looks in good condition but suffers from something that all cylinders seem to do.
Very loose fits!

It seems to be leaking air under exhaust filter cover. Isn't air supposed to be escaping the machine via air belt? Not to mention that airbelt is covered in black dots.



I also think there's a problem with the hose. Something's not tight there. Is there anything I could do apart from buying a new hose?




Someone had an amazing idea. Finally a decent upholstery tool as K's upholstery tool set up is really odd.

Bags seemed to do a decent job at keeping dust inside.

It also has the same problem as E1. The connection between wand and turbo head is really poor. Why don't they change it?  :underchair:

I know you're gonna say that I bought another used and battered machine and complain. I just thought that Dysons were aging badly but it seems to be the case with all makes.

And please just don't say it's a job for my local competent repair shop cause I also thought that Dysons needed a "proper service"..

It's meant to have 2100W but it just doesn't feel more powerful than 1200W Miele  :-\

Miele Vacuum Cleaners / Re: Miele S5261 Motor noise

Much more likely that the brushes have worn down, if you open it up it will be very easy to check them. All you need is a T20 driver to remove  the top of the housing and a suitable socket to undo the nut on the fan: from memory it's 13mm. The outer metal cowling is simply tapped off around the rim, friction fit only.
Remember that the nut on these is a left handed thread: you need to hold the fan steady and turn the nut clockwise to undo it.

Miele motors, like Dyson ones, are usually not of good enough quality that they are repairable. You'd normally change the motor.

You should be able to find a new or used one without too much difficulty, but new ones aren't cheap.

That indeed sounds like a power switch, Roger.  :icon_nod:
