Of course Manchester Vacs sells them!See >>> this link <<<As the product description says, you have four choices. If you want to pay around double for a genuine YDK, that option is available. If you don't then the Premium option is recommended.
Buggar all I expectMvacs sell a pattern motor that is probably better than the ones Dyson sell, as the company who make it would have sunk millions in R&D, and build etc to make a good product. From all our collective experiences they are as likely to go bang as a genuine dyson one, possibly less so as I doubt Dyson have updated the design since it was first made over probably 20 years ago (DC04).It's the proper shitty ones you need to watch, like these http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vacuum-Cleaner-Motor-Fits-DYSON-DC04-DC07-DC14-YV-2200-YDK-TYPE-/160733418125?hash=item256c75528d:g:HDAAAOSwEeFVLS0g which have no thermal cutout, or any other failsafe, let alone warranty!Buy the £29 one from mvacs, who only sell them because they trust them, and spend the difference from a Dyson one on new filters! There are cheaper motors out there, from Qtex down to ebay and we stay away from them for a reason. I'm sure Stu can regale us with many hilarious* stories about motor failures, he's a good person to get a cross reference of the market from, buying them a pallet or 2 at a time!I have a burnt out DC07 stripped now which has a genuine dyson motor in, it can happen to any of them, no point in paying more than you need for the same odds. Saying that, I've used the supposedly dodgier ones (the £20 ones) a few times and had no issues, but I've only used about 10 in my entire refurbishing career (as I try to buy working machines to save on that) and not had any issues, but obv the more you sell/have a shop, the more you care, vs me who works off facebook that will just go into Customer Service mode and apologise and just fit another motor FOC to keep my reputation up, it's a gamble I'm currently winning on...
Probably because the filter is rubbish compared to the 07 and 14
