I changed the motor on my DC05 about 6 months ago after the old one eventually burnt itself out.
I have tried using it a couple of times recently and it has worked intermittently. I thought it was the fuse as when I changed it, the machine worked again. However it has stopped working all together now.
I have taken it apart down to the motor and all of the connections are in place and there appears to be no signs of burning or smell. When I tested the motor when the Dyson was stripped down, there was a ticking sound briefly before it stopped again.
Does anybody have any ideas what is wrong with the old work horse and how to fix it?
