Question about Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
Hi, I would have to say, that if the roller-brush Is clean and the belt is on and in good shape, that the problem will be in the vacs motor assembly itself. If the motor comes on, the beater bar will engage and pick up debris.If it is coming on and not rolling, it it damaged internally.If the unit will not come on at all, you can pull out the on/off switch and try to bypass to see if unit starts, and if so replace switch.If you have excess to a volt meter you can check for power at the switch.Touch one lead to one terminal and the other to ground, should be 120v.Same coming out. If motor doesn't come on at all, more then likely, it has died on you, open windings, shorted to ground and will need replaced.Not knowing the cost off hand of this machine, I would compare prices of a motor to a new one.I hate to give you this news, But If the switch is good, and the motor is off, it has failed on you.Try and do the checks and get back to me, so we can be for sure on it. Sincerely,
