Removing a bit of fabric from a DC28C motor...
« on: January 07, 2016, 11:08:04 PM »
I got emailed by a lady who had 'sucked a tissue into the motor' of her DC28C. I picked it up at lunchtime, and had a look just now



This is all she gave me



Front gubbins off



Wheels off



Cracked open



The non replaceable (by the end user) filter looked clean



Mmmmm, that's not a tissue











aha!



jesus



Motor shot for the nerds





All back together, works a treat again. 30 for 10 minutes work, I'll drop it back tomorrow lunchtime.

I had to take my dc40 apart to the motor like 20 times and I finally got it working
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.

Apparently,  she was cleaning the car and blocked the hose with it,  so,  without thinking (she said that),  she took the cyclone off and put the hose to the suction inlet... Knew immediately what a title she was and turned it off (again,  her own words)

No idea what it's like,  the suction very strong without the cyclone fitted but I didn't get that,  just got the motor unit.
