Hi folks, I have a dc24 which is out of warranty. Recently the brush bar ceased spinning. I have followed the instructions from the forum on pressing the reset button which I did but to no avail.
I then followed a thread about how to remove both the pcb and motor from the head unit and check the motor with a multimeter to find out if its at fault or not. To this end I purchased a multimeter and performed a voltage check on the motor itself while the unit was powered up and got an average reading of 240v which slowly went down to zero after the unit was powered off. What I'd like to know is; what does this mean? Is the motor faulty or working or does the fact that I can get a voltage reading from it mean that the motor is working so the pcb must be at fault or is there another answer? Really hoping that someone can help - for as great as the dc24 is for my needs - it is impotent without the rotating brush bar. Loclann
