Question about Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

Dyson dc05 motor cuts out

Hi Chris,
I've seen that you can provide spares motor cutout and possibly the capacitor for dysons.
My DC05 has stopped working after cutting out for a while.
I've opened it out and tested some parts. The switch is ok (tested with universal voltmeter). Also the motor shows reasonable resistance which means that it is not blown.
My only suspect part is the capacitor failing to start the motor?
I don't know if there is thermal cutout and where it could be.
Any suggestions welcome.
Regards,
Tigran

Hi,

Check for either voltage to switch or if your not happy or compettant working on live mains.
Switch meter to ohms ensure vacuum is unpluged from mains follow live wire (brown) from plug to exit point on the back of cable rewinder check for continuity shold be dead short if it is check switch if this is ok move to neutral (blue) wire again check from plug to rear of cable winder.
The neutral then goes off to moter again check for dead short,
I think from experience that you will have A break in either live or neutral in the mains lead going to cable winder.
If it is its realy easy to replace winder they come with lead all ready fitted.
If you need one contact me.

Instruction manual is lost how can i get a new one?


Dyson has the manuals for some of their products on their product support page. See http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc05/dc05-absolute and look on the right hand side of the page. The direct link to the manual is http://www.dyson.co.uk/medialibrary/Files/Dyson/Support/downloads/UK/floorcare/Manuals/dc05_uk_manual_120710%20pdf.pdf . If you have a different DC05 model start here: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/cylinders.aspx and select your specific vacuum. (The manual appears to be the same.)

I hope this helps.

Dyson Dc05 The Finger Tip Control how to fix


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

In order to provide further assistance, we would need to understand which particular variant of DC05 you own, as well as exactly which part has broken. Depending on which part is damaged we may be able to talk you through repairing it over the phone.

However just to make you aware, unfortunately since January 2015 we've been unable to support DC05 with spare parts or servicing due to its age. However we have some great discount offers available, so DC05 owners can upgrade to the latest Dyson technology if they choose to do so.

If you'd like to find out more and discuss your options, I'd encourage you to give our freephone 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.

Dco5 burning smell not working


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

If your DC05 is making a burning smell, it sounds like it may be the motor that's at fault. DC05 is one of our very oldest machines, and unfortunately since the start of 2015, we have no longer been able to support DC05 with spares or servicing due to its age. However we do have some discount offers available so DC05 owners can upgrade to the latest Dyson technology if they choose to do so.

If you'd like to find out more or discuss your options with our experts, you're welcome to call us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1800 239 766 (AU).

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!

Hi.

Check mains lead where it enters machine very common for internal fracture.

To prove this try waggling lead with machine switched on if it starts & stops this is the fault.
