SOURCE: burning smell

Have you checked the the hoses are free of debris?
Is the setting for floor on when you are vacuuming the carpet.

Turn id on an see if it will **** up some pennies.
Use the hose for that.

Check for string hair, etc cought in the brush.
Use the small pick knife that should have came w/ the dyson to cut away and thing caught in the brush.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: My dyson dc14 has a strong burning smell

A DC 14 has two belts - one that connects the motor ourput to the clutch mechanism (the dial that lets you turn off the brush rotation completely is part of the clutch mechanism), and another that connects the clutch to the brush bar.
Unfortuneatley, the one that connects the motor to the clutch is hidden under a plastic cover so is very difficult to check.
With the machine running, and NOT in the upright position (i.e. as if you were vacuuming a floor), make sure the brush bar is actually rotating. If it isnt, you need to check both belts and the clutch. Due to the cover being held by three "Torx" screws, one of which is very difficult to get at, this isnt easy.

If the brush bar is rotating, then the burning is an indication the motor is about to fail. Motor replacement is possible depending how good your DIY skills are, and again you'll need "Torx" drivers to dismantle it. Website www.dysonmedic.com has some very good info.

Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. Almost certainly it is the motor gone :(. Take off the lid that is under your bin and look at the filter underneath, if it has a black underside and a kind of burnt smell you will need to put a new motor in. If you happen to live in Australia you can get a motor from NelsonVacuums.com.au here is a link to the correct page. Hope this helps.
happy Vacuuming!

WHAT MODEL IS SERIAL NUMBER 151-UK-A32802


Hi there Michelle, it's Jack at Dyson.

From the serial number you've provided, your Dyson vacuum is a DC08 T Allergy cylinder. You can find support for this model on our website: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc08tw/dc08-telescope-wrap-allergy

Please note, spares and accessories for DC08 T will differ to the spares and accessories for the standard DC08 model. Floor tools, accessories and other parts for DC08 will not fit DC08 T, and vice versa.

If you'd like further help with your machine you're welcome to give the Dyson UK Helpline a call on 0800 298 0298. We're available from 8am-8pm from Monday to Friday, and 8am-6pm on weekends. Calls are free from UK landlines.

My vacuum was making a funny noise and had a bad smell


Hi John, it's Jack at Dyson.

Most Dyson vacuums include a thermal cutout which shuts the machine down for protection if it starts to overhead. You should find it will run again after it's cooled down for around 2 hours.

This is likely to have been caused by a blockage, or because the filter is overdue for a wash. To prevent this from happening again, please follow the steps shown in our Support guide: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc08/dc08-standard/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-won-t-switch-on-or-cuts-out/my-machine-cut-out-whilst-i-was-using-it/how-to-wash-filters/check-the-floor-tool

In normal use, the filter needs to be washed at least once every 3-6 months, as shown in the video attached. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 12 hours for both sections of the filter to dry completely before replacing it.

If you'd like some further help from our experts after you've given both of these steps a try, please call the Dyson customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 01-475-7109 (IE).

Gets hot, burning smell and turns off


Hi there, Unfortunately you have a burnt out motor I would suggest. Of all common vacuums this is probably the easiest to change if you feel up to a home repair. I have made a video of how to do it and posted it on VacuumSmart.info if you want to check it out. If you need to buy a DC08 motor i would check out Nelson Vacuums or VacuumSpot if you are in Australia.

HI , I REPLACED MOTOR BRUSHES ,BUT MOTOR IS MAKING A FUNNY NOISE ,AS IF MOTOR IS LOOSING CONTACT ,LIKE A BURNING SMELL. CHEERS


Hi there,
Most likely you have a damaged commutator. I used to change the brushes on the dyson vacuums but what i found is that it is almost never completely successful. THe Dyson motor is not as good quality as say a miele and when the brushes go they normally cause damage to the commutator. THe best bet is to replace the motor. If you were able to swap the brushes a motor change will be easy for you. If you are in Australia you can get the motors from VacuumSpot or Nelson Vacuums.

Motor is making a knocking noise with a burning smell and sparks can be seen when switching on


Sounds like ur FiLTER is CLOGED!

Air was blocked going in the motor thats why ur smeling smething burning, means ur motor is starting to overheat!

Spark in the motor is NORMAL when the CARBON BRUSHES is touching the ARMATURE!

My suggestion is to CLEAN & WASH the filter or buy a NEW one!

Hope that cleans evrything on ur probs!
