Screaming Motor
« on: May 29, 2017, 02:22:44 AM »
So my new MTR299 is working perfectly  :thumbsup:
Only one problem - not the motor but something like a seal or something...
mostly its fine - sometimes there is a howl/scream if I open the presure relief valve by blocking the airflow? It happens on my DC14 if the motor airway isn't quite clicked in which gives me a seal fault impression - is it possibly becasue I pushed the motor in WITHOUT using any form of lubrication on the seal? just read a old post on here about a motor howl.
May just strip it, remove the mtoor - lubricate the fancase seal and rebuild it?
But it works damn well apart from that little incident - loads  - and I mean loads - not your average DC07 like x10 more suction, the normal non clutched brushroll growl and so on - I just really love non clutched for how good they are at picking up the carpet compared to non clutched. which of my Dysons do I prefer? DC01, DC04, DC07 or DC14 - it is the DC07 - unique yellow, turqoise, silver colour scheme - carpet eating performance - picks tonnes of dog hair up -
I think the DC07 Animal should of been non clutched because my origin works a lot better than both of my previous DC07 Animals - thats because of the carpet eating brushroll (Or as my nan calls it beater-bar - just like she always calls the hose a snake... Although my nan is amazing - and personally I do prefer the word snake instead of hose... cause it is a literall snake - it expands and slithers around and eats anything in its path...)
