You may want to invest in a soldering tool. I would recomend benzomatic that uses butane fuel. You can buy the whole set for 15 buck at a home depot. Of course you need butane fuel which around a few bucks. The butane soldering kit has some solder, and everything you will need. You may also want to grab a roll of electrical tape for about 50 cents at the home depot. Take not as you take the vacuum apart. Usually the motor do not go bad, but the vibration somehow breaks the connection to it, unless you actually smell the motor burning it is usually the connection.

Take motor out of dyson o7 how do i take out old motor and replace it


This model takes specialized tools to take apart. Even the belt replacement takes a factory tool. It is crazy I know. You will have to send it off to a warranty dealer.

Need to change fan belt on my dyson animal


I found this on a search one day. You will need either their tool or a long star screwdrivers(I think that's what hubby said) to take off one part of it.

I changing the belt


Hi,

Not sure why you claim clutch belts cant be changed because they can.
The DC04 DC07 DC14 all use the same clutch unit if you cant get the belts from your local vac repair shop look on Ebay they are on there.
The special tools are torx screwdrivers & if replacing both belts you will require circlip pliers.

How to replace both belts in manual form can be found here http://dysonmanuals.llc.nu/index.htm

THE MOTOR KEEPS RUNNING


Could be 2 reasons, since you changed your bag and this started happening, 1 is that you the aut/manual switch got bumped to manual. In manual it will run until you unplug it or set the switch to auto. #2 is there is a relay that has stuck in the on position. Sometimes rapping on it will jar it free, most times t has burnt contacts and will keep doing this, so replacing it is best.

It just shuts off!


Some of these have the Hepa filter on the back, if so there will be a door to access it. If there is one, some had a reset button that you push, mainly for when you change the fifter, if it has one, push that reset, if it needs to be re-set, it will shut off after a seconds. Remove the Hepa filter and look see if there is a reset button. https://portal.bsh-partner.com/portal(bD1kZSZjPTAwOQ==)/PORTALFRAME.HTM, this will give you a link for a user manual. If you disconnect the hose, will it shut off or stay on. If it stays on then there is a clog either in the hose, wands, or the inlet down by the brush roll. If it goes off, and there is no reset by the Hepa filter, then there could be a problem with the motor or motor protector.

Dyson upright


hi this is an expensive repair and would probably be cheaper to buy new one the problem you have is with the motor bearings seizing its expensive to repair because when dyson made thes vacs they were made so you need special tool to take them apart so replacing the motor would require calling a dyson bloke out as i found out with mine when my switch failed i tried removing and replacing myself but when the bloke came out he used a thin piece of metal down the side of switch to press button to release switch after i payed him to do this 2 months later i got your problem and called them back they tryed selling me new one as the repair was 50 quid more than a new vac.
Hope this is some help sorry i couldnt give you good news
