Dyson DC24 is making strange noise. When Vacuming. Also I noticed a smell coming from it to it kind of smells like something is burning.


Hi there,

Sorry to hear about the problem you're having with your DC24. If you can smell burning, I'd strongly recommend you stop using the machine and get in touch with us free on 08002980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US). We can run through some troubleshooting steps over the phone, and provide further assistance.

Kind regards,

Jack

I didn't understand what you need exactly, but anyway, you can find both of them on amazon (the entire vacum, or just a battery 1500Mah). take a look on following links:
1. entire vacum: Dyson DC16 Root 6 Handheld Vacuum Cleaner
2. just battery: Pwr 1500mAh Extended Capacity Battery for Dyson Dc16 Root 6 Vacuum Cleaner...

Motor noise and burning smell


your belt is of the guide arm try replacing the belt usually located @ the head of the vacum there should be 4-6 screws holding the head on remove it in well ventilated area try putting on mask cause you will release all the dust from the head when you take it apart you will see the belt around the brush remove the brush and bearings togther then replace belt if you know your model # of your vacum u can usually find replacement parts online or @ most sears and walmart outlets.

Deodorizing the vacuum


First of all Clean out the vacum cleaner . Empty canister and take filter outside and hit on something to get all dust out . Now wash canister and filter with vinegar water and let dry before using vacum again. You might try using carpet fresh for pet odors on carpet and empty and clean canister and filter regularly. I own a cleaning business and this is a hard problem to solve with all vac. cleaners. Good Luck!!

the actuator in the switch is defective, you can replace just the switch. There are several places to get just the switch, just google "dyson dc07 parts" for places on where to get the switch.
