First Generation "The Ball" Dysons. / DC Motor Overheating
« Last post by mavme on Today at 06:17:26 PM »
I have a DC18, where motor overheats and it shuts down after a few mins(4-5mins).

It doesn't happen immediately, brush rolls and its sound changes like it's about to die and then it'll shut off.

Cleaned all the wand, pipes, lower brush area and all filters. If I remove the whole cyclone and filter body, then turn it on there's a lot of suction on the hole which goes into the cyclone. While running, wand has very minimum suction.

I feel like, there's some blocking, cleaned the port where wand hose goes yesterday, there was a lot of debris/hair there. In order to access it, have to disassemble all the springs and torx screws, now have to assemble, is there a exploded diagram? Also, while I am at it any other cleaning I can do?


Thank you for the advise and help.

Dyson DC07 / Does later dc07 origin chassis break?

Do the side break or no?

Both belonged to another collector. One he paid a couple of hundred quid for, the other he found on facebook for 30 a few months later (as you do)

One stank of air freshener and the other does jump about a tiny bit when you change the power, so the job paid for itself and he got possibly the mintiest one there is ever, and ive got the 2nd!

Their ruddy clunky to use though, the floor tool is horrible and infared has no place on a vac.

Having used a Dolphin and this for a month, I'd choose the dolphin every day.
Still love it though...

The Electrolux 4x4 is a very rare vacuum cleaner. Born in the early 1990s as the top of the line cylinder cleaner, it did not sell well. I've never really seen one in real life...

So, naturally, I found myself with 2 of them!

I dont believe I ever saw one before. How did you find two?

The idea with the rebuild threads is their step by step, on everything. SO the next picture is the next bit you need to do.

However from memory it is a bit of a sod, are you meaning the part you have to lay over the motor falling off every time you take your hand off it? Drop of glue holds it in nicely whilst you lower the top cover on and screw it on. The picture on the re-assembly steps shows how it needs to be laid out and tucked in.

That's more in response to Abbi. Your issue sadly is brute force... If you can get hold of a new used baseplate, undo all the screws you can and literally bend it up and pull the screws out of the posts a bit. Then a pair of grips on the head and spin. Or cut the slots, and file the edges of where you'll go through the base plate down and fill with q-bond or similar, or lob a used baseplate on. There's not much else you can do really. In terms of replacement screws, Stu will have some he could send you.

Just don't snap any of the screw posts! Have fun...

Did you remove the Brush bar motor? If so how did you get the wires back in place to close it all up again? I'm on day 6 of trying to figure it out. I'm sorry. I probably sound crazy but I just can't figure it out.

No, sorry, I did not go that far.  I gave up trying to remove the base plate screws.  I simply coated them with rust remover a few times, then applied an enamel laquer.  All works fab now.
