You can find the undercarriage one here: DC18 exploded drawings.

Do you need another section? I can have a root about if you do.

Many Thanks for image, we have a problem with the brush bar the large one is spinning as it should but the small one is not moving & we are getting a burning smell from the cleaner, Dyson has said we need a new cleaner head but im not convinced & dont want to spend 80 to find out it was something simple, D you have any suggestions

Thank you

Our chap has done quite a few DC18's lately, as we had a build up of them that I wanted to clear. In doing so, he has rebuilt a few cleaner heads so it might be fresh in his mind.

But we are closed until Thursday now, so I can likely get you an opinion then.

Anyone else with any thoughts, please chime in.

I'm sure you've probably already tried it, but have you taken the brushbar off the spindle and cleared all the hair and crud that can accumulate and stop the brushes from spinning freely?

My DC 18 also has a problem with the brushbar motor, it is not running. Can anyone tell me what voltage I should see going to the motor please?

7 volts is too low. I think you probably need a PCB. Either that or the wiring loom is damaged where it comes out of the machine.

What volts do you have going into the PCB?

The motor is an XLG77 on those I think? (I don't have one to hand). What is written on the motor?

Hi MVacs
I suspected that it was an incorrect voltage... I will check the machine when I next go into my workshop in oder to gather the required info and get back to you.
Thanks very much for the reply.

Sorry for the delay, bit of illness....
Just tested the voltages today and found 230 from the socket, and 230 onto the PCB. About 24 Volts was leaking out to the motor. Didn't disconnect the motor but I  guess I should do before definitely blaming the PCB.
Will get to that tomorrow :)

Poked my meter into this again today and switched it to DC, found 300+ volts DC coming out of the PCB.
Is that about right, if so I am guessing that the motor is useless and I don't think the brushes are replaceable are they?
Hoping that someone can help.
TIA

Keith
