DC24 brushbar fault
« on: January 24, 2016, 10:31:13 PM »
No I don't usually buy ball dysons as there fiddly and a pain but this one looked fairly new and didn't look battered

Got home plugged it in and the brush bar doesn't spin

Anyone able to give me a list of common faults from previous experiences please ?

Have you pressed the reset button?
Subject to that, the switch, PCB or brushroll motor may have gone, use a multimeter to check the output/continuity.

Common faults:

Brushroll motor
Brushroll PCB
Ends of the brushroll wear causing noises and jumpiness
The outer plastics get battered
The little white ball-motor housing bush wears down, sometimes completely away
The main motor burns out
the main motor sparks like a bastard
The middle bin release rod part, (that sits behind the 2 halves of the upper cyclone) has a spring that needs to be at the right orientation to work (needs to push the release rod back and past the bin when fitted) is AN ARSE.
The spinal cord is very tricky to get out, and at one point does need a scary amount of persuasion to be removed
The post motor filter catch can be a bastard, if it pops out it jams the ball which is gr9 fun to rotate it to where it needs to be to get at the filter...

Still better than a dc50 though, at least parts are cheaper for a 24...

We sell hundreds of brush bar motors for these.

I have one of these at the moment (my first Ball!) and it seems to be fairly healthy apart from its filters were dirty and the brushroll was dead.

Replaced the brushhead motor and cleaned the filters and it works fine.

However I am reluctant to completely strip it as it looks very fiddly in places and I don't have the patience of a saint like some of the guys on here!

It just comes down to having the right tools and plenty of coffee/food   :biglaugh:
