    Motor head was intermittently working now does not work anymore. Seems to be either an electronic problem. As it would only do it after running for a while got hot.

    Called the Dyson man out and it was the pipe electrics. Cost a few bob but on the plus side it was a fixed cost and he also went through the vacumn and replaced three other componets.



    My advice, call the Dyson man! LOL!

Brush on dyson dc05 wont spin


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.
I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your DC05. If the brush bar isn't rotating correctly this could be due to a blockage, or because the filter needs a wash. To locate and clear any obstructions please follow the steps shown in our Support guide:

http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc05/dc05-plus-turbobrush/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-not-sucking-picking-up-as-well-as-usual/how-to-wash-filters/no1/next/check-the-wand-handle

The filter needs to be washed at least once every 3-6 months, as shown in the video below. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 12 hours for the filter to dry completely before replacing it.
This should resolve the issue, but if you find the brush bar is still stalling after you've run through these checks please get in touch with us directly so we can help further. You can reach our freephone UK customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 from 7am-10pm daily.

You must shure to see the videos, and see if the parts installed is o.k or are not. You must test the belt is broken, worn, or bad installed. test the motor for brush, bearing and lubrication, and finllay the thermal fuse inside or thermal switch.

Dyson dc05 electrical fault


Hi Helen,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your DC05. From what you've described, it sounds as if the machine may have overheated in use - this will occur if the filter needs a wash, or if the machine has a blockage. You should find the machine will run again after it's had at least two hours to cool down, but to prevent this from reoccuring, please follow the steps shown in our online Support guide:

http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc05/dc05-standard/my-machine-is-not-working/power-failure

If you'd like any further assistance or advice, please give our Helpline a call on 0800 298 0298. Calls are free from UK landlines, and the Helpline is available from 7am until 10pm, 7 days a week.

Dyson DC05 MotorHead schematic


Hi David,

Unfortunately the DC05's Motorhead is supplied as a complete assembly, so we're unable to offer individual components to repair your Motorhead. If you'd like to order a replacement Motorhead assembly, you can do so via our Helpline on 0800 298 0298, or through our online store:

My dyson dc05 just stopped working,any idea what the fault could be? i,ve had it about 7 years


Guessing that the power plug has broken wiring inside the plug--try replacing the plug with an aftermarket plug from the home center or hardware store. Another possibility is the power switch has gone bad--replace it with the proper part ordered from an appliance parts store. Another part that can go bad is the motor brushes, but that requires that the vacuum be fairly well disassembled. Good luck!

My dyson DC05 has been playing up for a while. The motorhead would start fine with green light on and after a few minutes would stop and light would go green. then the power would go on and off - seemed to...


as the wires that control the motorhead run all the way down the hose it is a break in the wires you will need to buy the hose assy sorry its not thesort of thing you strip down and repair
