Looking for a bit of advice regarding a problem I am having repairing a DC01.
Last week there was a lot of banging and clattering from the motor housing and a loss of suction. I suspected a new motor of which I know are hard to source. Having taken it to pieces i found the motor to be fine but the problem was at the end of the armature where there is a fan like plate structure which I assume creates the suction. The whole structure had disintegrated hence the banging noise. I have no idea what it is called or even if it is available as a spare.
The irony is that the motor is fine and works well and assuming I can repair this, it will benefit from a new pair of brushes. Those I know are easy to get hold of.
All help gratefully received.
Forgot to mention - the motor is an Armtek
