Lay vac down, turn on so brushroll is spinning, leave for a minute or two - if brushroll doesn't cut out then most likely the yoke cable.
If brush roll does stop when machine isnt moving then motor possibly at fault, if it's an erp version with the red slide on head it could be erp pcb in ball too.

are you using it wet or dry ?
Can it be used dry ? i presume so...
If tripping when using it wet,  try it dry
Narrow down the fault and get your tools out.

Vax Vacuum Cleaners / Vax 121 tripping
« Last post by Joe101 on Yesterday at 07:41:47 PM »
Hi everyone

I picked up a vax 121 today for £20, and started using it to clean the interior of my car, it did a great job of removing some muck from the boot, but then tripped the electrics, and again, and again!

Any ideas?

Hi
Completely disassembled and cleaned my dc40 brush head. Had lots of hair in roller spindles. Then the cog case was full of burnt hardened hair. Cleaned and reassembled but now brushbar cuts out every 30 seconds or so. Hose works fine. An ideas

Cylinder & Canister Dysons / Dyson dc54
« Last post by foru2justnv on Yesterday at 03:16:04 PM »
Hi all
Firstly a great forum some very interesting reads.
Decided to strip and clean my dc54 after reading some of the posts on here. Completely disassembled machine cleaned everything out and went easily thanks to all the posts on here.
Only thing i have stumbled upon is the round plastic which the wire comes through and wedges between the 2 casings. I can't figure it out and sscondly cable rewind isnt working. Any pointers as to where ive gone wrong.

Much appreciated

Actually it may just be R1 that has failed, if so it's a cheap fix.

I don't have the board to hand to tell you it's value, i will have a look tomorrow (sat ) for it.

Oh dear, i do have those Q1 components and cannot remember what value the resistor is now without looking at a board.
you will have to find a replacement board or attempt to repair that one, Q1 is easy enough to remove with a hot air rework station, the resistor too could be replaced but my worry would be finding that other surface mount components have failed.

Not the components that costs tbh, for me it's the labour cost.

Thanks Ryevac,

I 'think' it's correct, new one on left, old one on right. The main product code matches. I presumed the other codes (which differ) were batch codes.
