    My DC05 was working fine and just 'conked' out during my vacuuming the lounge. It will not switch on and I have no idea what the problem is. It hasn't given me any problems in the 4 years that I have had it. Please help

    Action taken:

    a. Checked socket to ensure it's working and all fine.

    b. Changed fuse NO change.

    c. Cleaned filter as per normal NO change.

    d. Not managed to remove cover on wheel to check connection not easy



    Any ideas

My friends Dyson DC05 was loosing suction and then it stopped altogether one day. When she took the filters out there was black soot in them so it was obvious that the motor had burnt out. I think this happened because she wasn't cleaning the filters regularly (go do yours now!) I replaced the motor myself and wrote a guide with photo's at www.tasweb.org

We have a DC08 it looks very similar to yours. The wife just did the same thing. She pulls the power cord out of the wall by the cord not the plug. It opens up one of the wires in the power cord. This is the second time it's happened. I opened up the vacuume cleaner and checked the cables and motor and all is well, but from the plug to the connectors in the cable re-wind mechanism is open circuit. So there is a break inside one of the wires, and I have to replace the power cord.

Can you replace dyson on/off switch dc05 turbobrush


There are a number of places that list replacement switches. There are also a number of DC05 models, though the power switch is not likely to vary across them. Amazon, for instance, has a Dyson Switch for models including the DC05 and six other models (see here
Dyson Switch Dc03 Dc04 Dc05 Dc07 Dc08 Dc11 Dc14 On Off )

This video (ostensibly for a DC08, but the procedure should be pretty much identical) shows how to take the unit apart, get at and test the on/off switch, and replace it if need-be.

Brush on dyson dc05 wont spin


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.
I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your DC05. If the brush bar isn't rotating correctly this could be due to a blockage, or because the filter needs a wash. To locate and clear any obstructions please follow the steps shown in our Support guide:

http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc05/dc05-plus-turbobrush/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-not-sucking-picking-up-as-well-as-usual/how-to-wash-filters/no1/next/check-the-wand-handle

The filter needs to be washed at least once every 3-6 months, as shown in the video below. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 12 hours for the filter to dry completely before replacing it.
This should resolve the issue, but if you find the brush bar is still stalling after you've run through these checks please get in touch with us directly so we can help further. You can reach our freephone UK customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 from 7am-10pm daily.
Best wishes,

Dyson dc05 electrical fault


Hi Helen,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your DC05. From what you've described, it sounds as if the machine may have overheated in use - this will occur if the filter needs a wash, or if the machine has a blockage. You should find the machine will run again after it's had at least two hours to cool down, but to prevent this from reoccuring, please follow the steps shown in our online Support guide:

http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc05/dc05-standard/my-machine-is-not-working/power-failure

If you'd like any further assistance or advice, please give our Helpline a call on 0800 298 0298. Calls are free from UK landlines, and the Helpline is available from 7am until 10pm, 7 days a week.

Best wishes,

Jack

If you can make it work by holding the switch down then it must be the switch or a bad connection on it. The only way to find out is unplug the machine from the mains and remove the switch to check it. A replacement should be cheap enough.

I changed the motor in my Dyson Animal hoover and works fine but after 15 minutes it stops as if it was turned off, if i leave it for a period (2 hrs)it will start up again and work for a further 15 mins...


Hi there

All Dyson vacuum cleaners are fitted with a thermal cutout, which will switch off the motor if it becomes too hot. This is normally caused by a lack of airflow to the motor, i.e caused by a blockage or a dirty filter.

I would make sure that you have completed the full blockage procedure and have thoroughly washed the filter and see if this helps.

Kind regards
