Hi everyone im new here! so please excuse my spelling if its wrong and how do you upload pictures because mine are too big. or how do you shrink them. recently i saw a big purple dco4 in the electrical bin at the tip and i felt sorry for that hoover and well asked the dump guy if i could take it and he said yes. so threw it in the car and went home. its a shame that i didn't take any pictures because every hose was blocked on the hoover and thanks to the dc01 and a long stick i managed to unblock all the hoses. then i checked the brush bar and well it was full of hair as well. cleaned it all up and put it all back together. and gave it a wee test run and well its works very well and sticks to the carpet and hard to push haha
. Monday after noon i was stripping her right down and cleaned it all up with soapy water and a scrubbing brush, i was so tempted to just stick it all in the dishwasher at a low temperature but i decided not just in case it broke them and the sticker would of came off!. put it all back together and i now runs even better
Later the end of that week i found another dc04 standard (yellow) brush control. was in excellent condition apart from the dyson logo scratched but that didn't bother me. everything was fine so i plugged it in and there was no life from it!?
. checked the fuse, nope fine, checked the switch and it was fine as well, the cable was fine as well. well there was only one answer, the motor is screwed. took it all apart and yeah it was. the carbon brushes just about down to the metal and the amateur on the motor was worn.
well i thought well what am i going to do with this then? decided to take the purple and green a bits again and do a slight change to the body. well i know its not original but i quite like all the gray,green and purple. the body on the purple one was all cracked and the crevice tool holder broken on the want. so i done a full rebuild again
i do have a slight problem though. when its in use i smell electoral burning from the motor and no funny noises? do you guys know what it could be? the motor is fine the amateur is very clean and not worn and its the same with the carbon brushes
i will upload pictures when i work it all out or someone helps me
