Hi there VacuumGuru for vacuumspot.com.au here. It is likely to be the motor for that model but it is easy to test. I will answer this with the assumption that a person wouldn't try to repair something they are not qualified to do. All you have to do is disconnect the wires off your switch and join them together (with power cord disconnected from socket obviously). Then plug you cord in again. If it still plays up then it is your motor if its fine replace your switch. We stock switches and the motor for that machine if you live in australia by the way.

Instruction manual is lost how can i get a new one?


Dyson has the manuals for some of their products on their product support page. See http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc05/dc05-absolute and look on the right hand side of the page. The direct link to the manual is http://www.dyson.co.uk/medialibrary/Files/Dyson/Support/downloads/UK/floorcare/Manuals/dc05_uk_manual_120710%20pdf.pdf . If you have a different DC05 model start here: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/cylinders.aspx and select your specific vacuum. (The manual appears to be the same.)

I hope this helps.

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.

Good Luck!

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,

HEPA Filter has melted on our Dyson DC05 turbo filter? I'm trying to investigate the cause any suggestions as to how to get into the unit?


throw it away, any time a plastic vacuum gets melted or warped in any way they usually never work the same again, and tend to get worse over time.

I have my Dyson DC05 for few years. The 'Red light' on its turbobrush is on and cannot get it running. Can anyone help? Thanks, Angus


Hi there Angus, SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. That light normally means the motor is stuffed but it will also light if the roller cant spin. So just check there is no obstuction stopping the roller from turning and also remove the roller and take of the end caps and clean out the debris that ias likely there too. If this isnt the problem unfortunatley you will have to get a new head. Hope this helps. Happy Vacuuming :)

How many filters does Dyson DC05 has?


The DC05 has two filters.  In terms of air-flow through the machine, one sits between the bin and the vacuum motor, the other is after the motor and is effectively the exhaust filter. The one that's missing on your machine is the first filter - it consists of a blue foam disc contained within a yellow surround (the base of the surround has additional filter material built in to it). Both components are washable (but be sure everything is absolutely dry before re-installing after washing).  The filter you can see under the bin is the second (HEPA) filter. This one is usually quite long-lived but, if your machine has been used without the first filter in place, the HEPA filter almost certainly needs replacing too.  The machine should never be used without the first filter in place, as that will risk serious damage to the motor and will certainly shorten its life.  Incidentally, user manuals can be downloaded from dyson.com.
