DC24 PCB - Never seen them blow like this
« on: March 01, 2015, 05:56:08 PM »
The owner of the DC24 I replaced the main motor (as per the stickied how to) and brushroll motor for, and had the machine working brilliantly* again for messaged me earlier...

Brushroll stopped last night. Reset switch does nothing

 :censored:

He dropped it round earlier, and I had a look. Mmmm, it was indeed dead.

Off with the casing then, fire up the multimeter and...0. Was 330 coming out of it last time I did this.

Handily, I have a DC24 that I bought very cheaply (thread coming soon on that), in bits drying in the airing cupboard. I grabbed the working pcb from that, fitted it and... fixed!

I messaged the owner, told him what the issue is and have given him 2 choices, either keep the second hand PCB for no charge (and I'll get myself a new one), or I'll order him a new pcb and charge him what it costs.

Still waiting for a response, but whilst tidying everything away something caught my eye on the old PCB



So, if your brushroll motor has gone, you can either take the risk like I did and only change that, or play it safe and replace it AND the PCB for piece of mind!

Sodding things!

I must say I hate the dysons with separate brush motors, they are just utter rubbish.  Having said that, the DC05 motorhead we had from new is still going strong as is our DC25.

Tick tock...

Could do with a nice,  second hand but working pcb unit now if anyone has any? Can't complete my dc24 now...

email/message Claire and she will see if we have any.

We do see them blown like that from time to time.

Now that is a really clever idea Mvacs! Respect.
Btw I hope you dont mind me asking, would it be possible for aluminium DC41 wands to be made? Hope aim not asking for too much. I would love a DC41 but I feel as if the plastic wand is a piece of s**t
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.
