DC08 MOTOR
« on: January 26, 2015, 12:15:45 AM »
Hi Guys,
               Just a quick one, is the DC08 motor the same as the DC04, 7, 14 ?

Thanks

Yes as long as its a YDK motor. The one in the DC08 don't have a shaft to drive the belt of course but there is clearance in the motor housing to accommodate it should you fit a motor with one.

Thanks, I thought as much, the only other thing I've noticed is the thermal cut out is different ?

Is your donor motor from a DC04 Zorbster?

No, The motor is a new one for a DC14 as I have a few of these in stock just wasn't completely sure if the thermal cut out was the same on the DC08 as I have seen adverts on the net stating that the 'Correct thermal cut out" is fitted to the DC08 specific motor so not sure if there is a difference or not.

Watch family guy?
DC14s are tanks, just need a slightly longer motor life. Do plastic parts often break on DC14s? Nope. DC41- Sexy looking futuristic and powerful machine. Just needs a better designed cleaner head wheel and cyclone clip along with a dense metal rod in the chassis.
