I have a DC-08 dyson animal hoover and I'm replacing the motor but do not know which wire to connect to corresponding wires. there is a black and red wire on the motor part and a brown and blue wire connected to the on/off button. Thanks for the help.. Charlotte firstname.lastname@example.org

Re: Connecting motor part
Yes, colour coding of wires is a nightmare, isn't it!?
Red and brown both signify "live", and blue and black both signify "neutral". So you should connect brown to red, and black to blue.
I hope this is helpful. If you need more guidance, please post here again and I'll see what more I can do for you.

If you think the motor in your DC33 needs replacing, it would be worth contacting us directly for further advice. From the age of your machine it's likely it would still be within our free 5-year parts and labour guarantee period. Attempting to repair the machine yourself could void this guarantee, but we may be able to arrange for a Dyson engineer to inspect the vacuum and carry out the repair for you.
Please give our freephone UK Helpline a call on 0800 298 0298 so our experts can take some further details. We're available from 8am-8pm from Monday to Friday, and 8am-6pm on weekends. Calls are free from UK landlines.
Hi, it sounds that you may have a fault in your cable sometimes the wire inside the cable gets broken and only connects now and again when in the right position. I remember reading some where about this person had a dyson and had to get the wire changed for a second time as this was the fault. They put it into a dyson repairer to get the job done as you have to remove the motor. I no that's what you need to do on a dc07 animal. If its not the cable then it could be the temp cut out switch my first motor would go for so long hoovering then just stop and you would have to wait till it had cooled down then it would go for another short time. I had to get a new motor that time but it was covered by dyson . When the dyson man arrived i told him it was cutting out and he just fitted a new motor. I have since just replaced that motor myself rather than buy a new dyson. Always remember to remove the plug from the socket when doing repairs to your hoover.
Open the right side of the vacuum with a hex head screw driver. There are 4 screws. Inside you will find a circuit board.
1. Make sure the varistor (S20K150) is not blown, these models seem to have an issue with this. It is a flat blue "quarter" looking component near the top edge of the circuit board.
2. At the bottom of the circuit board are two white wires connected via push on connectors. Remove these from the circuit board by sliding them away from the circuit board. Power on the vacuum and engage the drive button. If the lower motor still does not engage check step 3.
3. A blue and yellow wire runs off the bottom end of the circuit board. These are the wires powering the lower motor. Check continuity with a multimeter and make sure they are not broken. I have seen where these wires will break as they run through the housing of the vacuum. If they are broken, replace them with any wire of the same gauge.
DC14s have two drivebelts that turn the brush bar - one connects the output of the motor to the clutch, the other connects the clutch to the brush bar. You can check the latter simply by removing the sole plate and looking. Unfortunately the other belt is hidden under a plastic cover, so you cant see if it is okay or not without some dismantling. This cover is not easy to remove and requires a Torx driver to under the securing screws. If, after removing the cover, the other belt is okay, then you have a faulty clutch. New clutches are available oneBayreasonably cheaply, but again good tools and DIY skills are required. Have a look atwww.dysonmedic.comwhich has some excellent info on dismantling and repairing a DC 07 which is very similiar to your DC 14, but unless you haveaccessto such tools, and feel confident to tackle it, it's probably time tocallDyson or aVacuumrepairer.
It could be the motor. I'm having to replace the brushes on my DC 05. It appears that you can only get brushes for the YDK motors in the DYSON, not the Panasonic motor. Which might be saying something about the YDK motors. What happens is that the carbon brushes wear down which is normal. However, the contact wire from the brush to its connector is set so that when the brush wears down, the wire is short enough to stop the spring etc from damaging the commutator. The end result is that you get an intermittent operation of the motor before it finally dies.
I believe all the DYSONs come with the option of both motors and you cannot really tell which motor you have until you take the thing to bits. You also cannot change motors without changing various other parts on the hoover. On my DC 05 the writing on the YDK motor tells you which one it is.
This website www. tasweb.org ,select the DC 05 option and scroll down tells you how to take the thing to bits. A search on google etc for your DC 07 may give similar results. Best of luck!
