How to - Dyson DC24 Motor Change
« on: January 26, 2015, 11:27:19 PM »
I had this in recently for a dead brushroll, and before I even got round to that, I noticed that the motor sounded a bit peaky...

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oM3PX2bPm8E" target="_blank">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oM3PX2bPm8E</a>

Quick message to the owner and he agreed to a new motor, and once I got the brushroll diagnosed, a new brushroll motor too. The parts arrived last week, and I got to it. Realising there is no how to guide for the main motor (apart from one buried in another thread), I thought I would give it a try!

INGREDIENTS:
New DC24 Motor assembly - https://manchestervacs.co.uk/Dyson/DC24-motor-917281-02-YV-07K24

New Post motor Filter - https://manchestervacs.co.uk/Dyson/DC24-Post-Motor-HEPA-Filter
T-25 Torx driver

So, wand, hose and cyclone off and out of the way.

Recline the machine.



Undo these three screws





You want to unplug this connector block



Next, you need to remove this thin white wire from the plug



because, as you can see, it needs to plug into the block on the new motor



Using a tiny screwdriver/pin/SWMBO's tweezers, push the locking tab up, and the connector pulls out





Then, remove the screw as shown.

Over to the other side, and remove the lower hose



Then remove this screw that sits under the hose



Remove the filter cover, and the filter



Rotate the ball so you can see the 4 screws, and remove them. Lift off one side of the ball, then rotate the other side and lift off the other. Pulling gently on one side, pull until the motor assembly pops out of the locating holes in the chassis



The Yolk comes off easily now



You need to salvage these three bits off the motor housing. If your tiny cog is ruined, you need one of these - https://manchestervacs.co.uk/Dyson/DC24-Bearing-Ball-923685-01



Take the larger cog. If it sounds a bit dry when rotating, pop it apart and smear grease over the ball-race. Then, fit it to the motor housing, so the locating lugs align with the motor housing cutouts, and the large lug protects the cables



Clean up and refit the seal



Fit the other bearing onto the spindle on the other side, then slide the housing back into the yolk



Then slide the yolk and motor housing back onto the chassis, the small cog side fits into the chassis, and the 3 screw holes on the wiring side must line up



Refit both screws onto either side of the motor housing. Then, plug the small wire into the new connector block



and plug the connectors together, and tuck the cables into their respective places



Refit the ball by placing one side over the bearings, rotating it to the back and placing the other side on top. Screw up and check for smooth operation



Fit your shiny new filter to give the new motor a great start in life



Refit the cable cover



Refit the side hose, (and the cleaner head if you removed it) and check the recline operation for smoothness. Hopefully, you should be job jobbed!

Intregued as to the state of the old motor, I whipped it out of the housing and popped the fancase off





If it didnt spark visibly through the housing with the filter removed I migth have been tempted to clean it up and save it, but it was too far gone sadly, killed by paper...

Hope this helps anyone out there attempt this quite easy job!

Nice one beko, really clear pics as always. Any chance of doing one for the DC25 next time you've got one in for a motor change please?
I've yet to do a motor change on a Ball model, though I did start my first cylinder one yesterday (a DC19). They're ridiculously easy and quick compared to a DC07/14 etc.

What a superb guide! I have just changed the motor in a DC24 for the first time and could not have attempted it without this tutorial.

A couple of points I noticed and got a bit stuck on are worth mentioning. BTW the Torx driver reqired is Tx15 not Tx25.

On the photo showing the disconnection of the thin white wire from the connector (took me ages to release it), it is worth mentioning that the thin red wire connected to the switch just next to it also needs to be disconnected in order to separate the yoke from the chassis.

Finally, when reassembling the motor assembly to the yoke, there are 2 flimsy lugs on the yoke which need to mate with 2 cutouts on the motor. It is easy to break one or both of the lugs if you don't spot them and just try and push the motor in without lining them up first.

Thanks again for an excellent guide.

No problem at all!  :tiphat:

Keep meaning to do threads on how to change motors on other machines but by the time I remember, the job is done and the machine is out the door!
