DC25 JAMMING BALL
« on: June 22, 2017, 05:03:49 PM »
We have Dyson DC25 which after a short time we find that the ball filter has been released and then jams the ball. Any suggestions of which parts should be changed would be appreciated.

I would try changing the post motor filter as perhaps the catch on it has worn. The other likely culprit would be the catch on the motor housing - but trying the filter first is much easier  :thumbsup:

The small bearing on the ball will have worn, With no weight on the ball dose it wobble if you grab it and twist? Its a simple and cheap job to do. There will be a thread on the forum, probably a rebuild by Beko that will show you how.

mrdyson is correct, I've had a DC25 which had the exact issue and had been resolved with a new filter.
DC14s are tanks, just need a slightly longer motor life. Do plastic parts often break on DC14s? Nope. DC41- Sexy looking futuristic and powerful machine. Just needs a better designed cleaner head wheel and cyclone clip along with a dense metal rod in the chassis.

I'd go with a new filter as I've had this a few times on DC25's that have had aftermarket filters on them.

That's the dc24 that does that!

+5 for the filter. If your lucky a new filter will cure it, if your unlucky the machines been running very hot due to poor filter maintenance and the motor housings warped slightly, allowing the filter to pop up slightly.

Does your pre motor filter get smeggy very quickly? And full of actual dirt not fine dust? You'll need a new cyclone gasket if so!

Does seem to be caused by overheating motor and housing warped. Thanks   :thumbsup:

Swapping the motor housing will be a cheap job, Mvacs will have a few I imagine. Swapping it over may take you an afternoon though!

Ask Claire or Stu for a happy price on a new filter set and motor housing, grab a 4 pack of beer and see how you go, there's a motor change guide and a full stripdown somewhere on here, and we can hold you hand if you get halfway through and scared!
