SOURCE: Dyson DC07 burning smell.
sounds like it is on the way out this may be because 1, you need to clean the filter cos when its dirty it stop air from going around the motor witch makes it get hot and overheat 2, also if you allow the bin to get to full this will also stop the motor from geting air to it so a good clean on your filter and bin will allow air to the motor then no overheating should accur

Your Dyson has A clutch unit this engages the brush roller when you pull the handle back to vacuum.
Check the clutch control knob which is at the bottom left side of machine looking from the front.
It should rotate to drive position when handle is pulled back.
If it doesnt turn the knob by hand to drive & try the machine.
If you still have no brush rotation after doing all this then UNPLUG machine from mains supply.
Now lay machine on its side & remove the sole plate, This is the cover over the brush roller.
Turn the 3 plastic screws to unlock postition & lift sole plate off.
Now try to yurn brush roller using your hand. It should turn freely if it is difficult to turn look for any foriegn object obstructing the roller.
If no obstruction found then remove the brush roller from the machine & check the bearings in the ends of the brush roller one or both may be siezed up if they are then new brush roller will solve the problem.
If bearings are good then either the clutch is faulty or the second belt which goes clutch to motor has snapped & will need replacing.
It is difficult to fully explain the clutch removing procedure,
But there are service manuals available for these repairs at this site

SOURCE: dyson 18 losing suction
Check the HEPA filter if it has one. This bit of foam gets clogged over time and significantly reduces the suction especially if you've been vacuuming a lot of very dusty areas i.e. dust from building work etc. Just wash the filter with lots of water and leave to dry before reinserting.

Apparent common failure is that either the thin yellow and or blue motor drive wires that run from the LH side of the vacuum where the "control board" is located down into the hinge / ball area become stretched and then fray and eventually break. Happened to my Dyson twice. First repaired under warranty, second took about 20 minutes. You need a Torx screwdriver to remove the LH panel ( 4 screws) and also an access panel (2 screws) at the side of the ball which permits access to the blue / yellow wire connectors. I replaced with a new wire and connectors having fed the wires through the access hole making sure sure enough wire was available for the movement of the handle. Also ensure that when the covers are replaced they do not trap any wires underneath.
