The World's #1 Vacuum Cleaner Advice, Repair, Discussion & Information Forum
Hello , I recently purchased a scrap DC07 to repair for my own use. Indeed motor was burnt out. So I got a cheapie from Ebay. When trying to fit it - I was completely baffled by the fact that the motor mount rubber didnt seem to fit the end of the motor properly. The hole didn't line up with the spindle of the motor. And motor wouldn't fit fully in its housing. I looked at various forums but got no help. By browsing Ebay I eventually noticed 2 types of motor mount - one with an offset and one without. Now I had already unfortunately thrown away the old motor so couldn't compare the two motors. Anyway i bought a new mount with no offset, and machine went back together and is working fine. Can anyone tell me the purpose of the offset and why is it that none of the replacement motors on Ebay make any mention of the offset ? Thanks, Davidgareth.
DC04s have one of two top motor mounts, one for Ametek motors and one for YDK. DC07s have one as they all have a YDK. DC14s with a YDK have one type, the Samsung ones have another type as below.

Hello everyone. I'm new to the forum & I've been reading many threads & picking up lots of tips.However, I've just stripped a very well-worn DC07 Origin which was fitted with an 'offset-type' top motor mount which was marked 'YDK Only'. My interpretation on MVac's post above is that the offset mount is for a Samsung motored DC14 & not a DC07.Also, in Beko 1987's thread where he reassembles a DC07 Origin (Nov 11, 2014) the top motor mount looks like an offset type, unless my eyes are deceiving me.Could it be that all the non-clutched DC07's are fitted with this type of mount? Seems unlikely with the number of experienced repairers who post on this site. Am I right in thinking that the steel 'guide plate' which fits over the rubber mount is only used on non-clutched machines?
