DC25 Brush Motor Board resistor value?
« on: December 28, 2016, 05:04:04 PM »
Hi,

I'm having to replace the motor in a DC25 cleaner head and also a resistor on the board is blown. I'd prefer to replace the resistor than spend 14 on a new board. Unfortunately, when it blew the portion of the shell showing the value disintegrated! Looking at other similar boards online it would probably be 1k, labelled "WP4S 1R0 5%". But I would like to be sure. It is labelled R1 and is the resistor closest to the front of the head when assembled.

Does anyone have easy access to read the value?

Thanks

Tim

Do you have a photo of the one you want a value from?

It is shown in the photo here: https://manchestervacs.co.uk/Dyson/DC25-PCB-Assembly
It's the sky-blue resistor towards the top of the PCB.

Thanks.

Yes, thank you very much! It is the one I thought. Nice to be sure so that it doesn't blow again in a few weeks!
The vacuum is on it's third or fourth life now - 8+ years isn't too bad for a modern product.

Thanks again.

Tim
