First clean it up with some WD-40 and then lub it with some light weight motor or sewing machine oil...

I stored my FH50220 in my storage unit over the winter and now it will not spray water


If your storage unit got below freezing it may have frozen and damaged something. It's hard to drain all of the water from pumps, tubes, valves, heaters etc. inside a carpet cleaning machine. If a machine must be stored where it may freeze one way to keep it from freezing up is to pour automobile windshield washing solution into the fresh water tank and run it through the machine until it comes out all of the Jets and cleaning attachments. Remove the fresh water tank and continue to run the solution through the machine to flush the windshield cleaner out of the machine. Be sure to use a cleaner with the proper anti-freeze rating and run fresh water through the machine before using it to clean carpets.

The motor stopped running. i can bang it down and it kinda kicks on but wont stay on...how can i fix this or where can i order a replacement motor


before replacing the motor, check the switch itself,, it could be bad or shorting ,, also,, if it seems intermittent it could simply be the motor brushes are worn, both of those are much cheaper than the motor, as with many fixes, sometimes its cheaper to replace the whole thing that repair it,, especially with vacuums

Dyson wont turn on and its a bit smelly


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 eBay2_bing.gif 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.
