SOURCE: dc14

I guess you don't need me to tell you you've got a major electrical problem!  Question is, what do you need by way of help?  At the very least you will need new carbon brushes for the motor, and it's quite likely that you may need a complete new motor.  Trouble is that Dysons generally are not easy for the amateur to get in to and Dyson do not make technical manuals available.  It's a while since I had to work on a DC14 and I can't remember how to get at the motor.  The best I can do is spell out your options: 1. Try to do it yourself and risk breaking something, 2. wait for a reply on this site from someone else (although to judge from the number of unanswered Dyson problems here, you may wait for ever),  3. take it to a specialist repairer or call Dyson direct for advice (but they won't give you any guidance for doing the work yourself).  
Good luck.  If you need to ask specific questions, post again here and I'll help if I can.

SOURCE: Vacuum making high pitched noise and smells like motor is burning

try repair first for quote and if too expensive then replace. 5 years is about the average life span.

SOURCE: My Dyson DC14 motor screams.

The clutch system has a worn out bearing. You will have to have a Dyson dealer or warranty center replace it for you.

My Dyson dc14 vacuum is making flapping noise and loosing power, strong burning smell


If the air flow is blocked, then yes you will get overheating of the motor and a funny smell. One approach is to remove the part closest to the motor, and if the motor then runs okay, the blockage must be downstream. Perhaps there is an online manual that explains how it comes apart? Another thought is that the bearings might be going bad. Might be worth taking this vacuum to a repair man.

I have a DC14. It started making a noise when turned on and a smell. I removed the main body to get a better look, and it seems that the motor is sparking. Does this sound like something which can be...


yes it can be fixed, the brushes on the motor are worn out. take it to a vacuum shop and they'll replace the brushes at a fraction of the cost of a new machine

When my dyson dc14 hoover is on it has a strange burning smell, and a noise like air popping, there seems to be suction from beater and it spins. and definitley suction from extension. Filters are clear...


It could be the belt. However, the popping sound does have me puzzled. The popping could be coming from a partially broken belt slapping against plastic.

Really loud noise, smell of burning then complete loss of power


It can be that the capacitor has burst which has resulted in the total loss of power to the motor. So open the vacuum and check for the motor section to find if there is a leak.

Dyson dc14 died, no power after burning smrll


It sounds like the motor has overheated and has now been irrepairable damaged.
The motor has a built in over-current trip to protect itself (and you if it seriously overheated and caught fire). This normally automatically resets itself, however if the motor has just about had it, the moment it is switched on, it just trips again.

The primary cause of motors overheating is that the filters are not cleaned or replaced frequently enough. Dont be fooled by Dyson's "lifetime filters". They need to be regularly cleaned and replaced when necessary.

Replacement motors are avaible on eBay for about £25, however repalcing one requires good DIY skills and tools.

Have a look at www.dysonmedic.com and see if you feel you can tackle it yourself. If not, take it to a repair shop or call the Dyson helpline.

Dc14 when turned on makes a different noise louder, and it smells like it burning and sparks at the bottom back just below the pipe

Dyson DC14 all floors.


sept 30,08 bought dc14 all flloor. After 3 to 4 uses it started making lots of noise when on carpet setting. I examined the roller brush and it was cracked at one end. I returned it Oct 13 ,08 and got another dc 14 all floor. Now this one after 2 uses has the same problem only a larger crack in the brush and a small piece of the brush broke off. Very dissapointed.

It won't start


Hi. Dont fully understand what you mean by (It was plugged going into the empty cylinder) If it is dead check mains lead to switch for any internal break in the lead,This is very common it usually breaks where it enters the machine. If its not the mains lead Check switch unit. I doubt its the motor unless it was giving a burning smell with a popping noise,
