Dyson dc25
« on: July 05, 2020, 10:09:13 PM »
hi guys my first post here, I have a dc25 and the brush head only works for a second if I bash the end on something like a skirting board. I have used the mothers head on the vac and it works flawlessly. Anything common or anything I can check to get the head to work again cheers guys.

But surely the mothers dc25 head on my dc25 vac wouldn't work and have the same symptoms? Instead her head works flawlessly on my vac. If I bang or bump the head on my vac into something the brush works for a second. I've had the head apart but can't see anything untoward..cheers

Sorry, didn't read your post fully,,,  >:(

Just replace the head motor in that case. Brushes probably just about worn out or sticking.

Could also be a simple bad wiring connection, but banging the head is most likely aggravating the brush contacts in the head motor. I never bothered changing brushes, or know if they are available - i always changed the motor as these are quite an old machine now.

Aye ok, there is a pcb in the head assembly but never had one go wrong.
Stu, Mvacs has a video in the dc25 section of how to replace the motor if you aint too sure about anything on that.

Just thought I'd end the thread..the new motor works. No more banging it into things to get the head spinning

Thanks ryevac

Glad to hear. normally you find the old motors vents are blocked too with carboned fluff.
