My DC05 plus wont power up
« on: October 11, 2014, 12:55:18 AM »
Hi,

After dismantling my DC05 plus once it decided to stop working (8+ years)I found bits of the carbon brushes loose at the bottom of the motor housing, after further investigation I can also see I have a Panasonic motor in my DC05 plus (see below), does this mean my only option is to:-
a)Buy the "DC05 Motor Housing & YDK Motor Conversion"
b)Buy a new vacuum?




I hope someone can help.

Thanks.

Try ebay, you might get lucky with a Panasonic motor but you will be getting a used one so how long it will last will be anyone's guess. swapping to the YDK would, IMO be the best bet.

I *think* we still have a used one listed on eBay. We also have a new one that appeared recently [probably the last one we will see] but it is an eye-watering 50 delivered as we had to pay strong money for it. I haven't got around to listing it anywhere yet but we have it.

Thanks for your reply.
Heard good things about the YDK motor so I will change over to that, leaning towards the conversion kit offered by mancvacs.

used and 50quid on a motor arent really options,  would prefer the conversion you offer on your website, do you have these items in stock?

Yes, they are here, but that is also 50. There is no cheap way around that really.

Don't forget that whatever 50 you spend, plus a tenner for new filters, it will last another 10-15 years!

By the time you've bought a second hand motor that has grumbly bearings and fitted it the 50 will seem easier!
