Dyson DC22 and Sucking Up Water
« on: September 21, 2010, 01:33:04 AM »
Having a vacuum shop means I have a number of vacuums at my disposal so off I headed to clean out my pick up truck with the handy little Dyson dc22.

Long story short I had a cracked windscreen from a stone and it had rained and I managed to suck up water from the carpet with the dc22.  By the time I noticed, it  was about a litre. :censored:

I thought the vacuum was history but was amazed to find that the water had not even made it thru to the inner core. The cyclone is that efficient .
I did however have to take the cyclone appart  clean it out and dry it.

Will One thing is for sure ,I can never again berate a customer for sucking up something they shouldn't have because they were not paying attention! :(

Have you ever sucked up water with your Dyson by mistake, what happened?

We had a customer last week with a DC16 that had sucked some water in. It had caused a circuit board inside it to burn out. It was beyond economical repair.

Hi Claire
yes I think I just stopped in time, what I found amazing was that had this been any other bagless vacuum the motor would have gone.

As far as circuit boards go I have them repaired now.  A certain make came in with water damage here and the board was gone. It was going to cost over R 300.00 SA rand ( about 35 pounds for the board but I got a replacement microchip for R4.00 about 36p and soldered it into place , took 10 min in total very happy customer
