Question about Dyson DC14 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

1 Answer

Same here... I have a DC-15 Animal, it was making a clogged type noise and before I had time to react, it stopped working and I smelled burning rubber. I also noticed that the ball was really hot. It's too late to call support, but I intend on doing so in the morning. I've only had my Dyson for a year, so I'm sure it's covered, however, I have no idea where my receipt is. Did they take care of your issue?

You sucked up something that stopped the brush from turning. This made the belt slip causing a burning smell.

D25 ball motor screaming noise burning smell and smoke coming from ball. Extended warranty expired recently!


The motor has seized and burned up. Its going to need professional repair as those motors are electrically controlled and not normal 120V motors.

Why is my DC24 not working


You may have an object caught between the belt and brush roll.
Remove brush roll cover and see if that is the case.

Dennis.

On turning on different noise then noticed smell of burning then just stopped working and no power since. DC 07 Dyson.


Unfortunately your motor had burnt up..most times this is due to not cleaning or replacing the filters...the filters get dirty and the motor gets no airflow to cool it....very common on dyson vacs

It was making a funny noise, then a burning smell, and smoke coming from under the cylinder which collects the dirt, then switched itself off. I have checked for blockages and can't see any


your motor is burned up. stop using the vacuum immediately due to possibility of fire. this is usually caused by the inner seal on the bottom of the cyclone lifts up or gets pinched and doesnt seal with the bottom lid.

My dyson has stopped working. There was a burning smell and then a strange noise and now it wont even switch on.


The Motor sounds like it has gone bad. Bagless machines like these always have motor problem. If it is under warranty then it will need to be shipped to Buffalo New York. I would trade in in on a Riccar vacuum. You can get 20 years out of those for less money.

Dyson absolute 17 animal smells like its burning when turned on also has terrible noise...nothing wrong with belt already checked it..so what's going on


I had the same problem with my DC15. With the brushes going it smelled like burning hair (bad). I had cleaned the brushes many times and it didn't seem to help. I even took it into a Dyson authorized repair shop and they couldn't find anything wrong with it. As a last resort I called Dyson 866-693-9766 1-866-My-Dyson. I was on hold for about 15 minutes before getting a live person. He had my problem diagnosed in literally 1 minute. I had hair wrapped around the spindle, inside the brush/roller mechanism. He walked me through taking apart the brush mechanism (super simple only using a quarter). There was a TON of hair crammed around the spindles and inside the brushes. All wrapped very tightly. I hung up with him to do the cleaning. It took some time and I had to use tweezers to get inside the rollers/brushes. But I got it all, put it back together (which was really easy) and tested it out. No burning hair smell at all. FIXED!

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.

Fuse blows after about 50-60 seconds


Hi.

If the motor is not smelling of burning or making strange noises I would think you have a problem with mains lead having an internal short circuit. Replacing mains lead should sort this.
If motor is smelling or not sounding correct then you need a new motor.
