Hi Jim!

Dysons are great to tear down, wash thoroughly and rebuild! What models do you have to work with? Nice easy 04/07/14s or a less lovely ball model?

Shout if you get stuck, you wont be stuck for long here!

Dc07 which had no suction and a none turning brush. Broke it down ran the compresser through it which had it like new, and changed the brush roll belt all now working. And a dc08 which has been washed through just need to repair on/off switch, and fit a new cable as the outer insulation has split. Shouldn't be a problem as I'm an electrician and have been repairing white goods for a while.  By any chance does anyone know how the switch goes back together as it was split, doesn't look like its damaged just not sure which order the bits go back together. I think I may have been ear marked to look at a dc24 with a possible faulty brush motor

Replied to your post in the DC07 forum but if you're still stuck I have one in the garage I can whip apart picture by picture for you if it helps!

Good luck with the DC24, horrible, horrible machines to strip and re-assemble. Brushroll motor may just need the reset button pressing on the side, or the continuity of the wires checked (little panel on one side of the ball comes off with 3 screws and there's that end of the cable, or a new motor or pcb.

Since you sound like your handy with the multimeter, you should have half a chance of a good diagnosis. I got lucky with both of mine in that the brushroll was fine. Got nearly 50 for a refurbished brushroll housing! Nearly as much as their worth as a whole vacuum!
