Question about Dyson DC07 All Floors Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

1 Answer

BURNING SMELL My DC 07 has suffered from poor suction in the upright position for some time now but this morning it ground to a halt. It was if the motor had burned out. I turned it upside down and some small stones etc tumbled out. I tried switching on again and the motor kicked in but the smell was horrendous so i switched off immediately. If it's likely to be **** inside the motor area i don't no how to access it. I've removed for fixing screws but still unable to prise apart. Is it just the plastic casing cleverly locking or am i missing a fixing point? Ian

I have a Dyson DC-07. The green cap with holes in it usually covers the end of the wand when used in upright vacuum mode. Now it just jumps open and so is very noisy when in use.


Regardless of the position of the green cap, there should only be suction through the pipe when the handle is locked in the upright position and you are using the flexi pipe. You should not be getting suction when the cleaner is being used as a traditional upright cleaner.

The chacces are that the little rubber flap that cuts off the vaccuum from the flexi pipe has something jamming it open (hairclips, dropped needles and bits of stick are favorite. Lay the machine on its front with the body fully flattened out and look down the extension pipe to the place where it ends (the area that would normally be very close to the floor if it was upright) You will see the little rubber flap at the end. My money is on you seeing something stuck there.

Please add a comment if this doesn't fix your problem and we can discuss more

On turning on different noise then noticed smell of burning then just stopped working and no power since. DC 07 Dyson.


Unfortunately your motor had burnt up..most times this is due to not cleaning or replacing the filters...the filters get dirty and the motor gets no airflow to cool it....very common on dyson vacs

Slight burning smell when dc07 is in use


Sounds like your belt can either be rubbing against something or its stretched out. Either way you should check into getting the belt changed.

Same here...


You sucked up something that stopped the brush from turning. This made the belt slip causing a burning smell.

Eureka 2961 BVZ no suction, burning smell


I have the same vacuum. The burning smell is letting you know that your belt is either broken or about to break. I have had mine for a year and have had to replace the belt 5 times. Now I have to replace the brush roller 'cause it broke under normal use. My next vacuum will be a Dyson Ball.

Burning smell


I had burning smell and some visible smoke which I tracked down to the handle area. The mains socket at the bottom of the handle had burned out. When I pulled the plug out I noticed that the prongs were blackened and scorched. I will replace the socket.

Upright Vacuum Cleaner Lost Suction


If you had the dryer sheet under the intake filter for any length of time you risk burning out the motor . If
it smells like burning hair and plastic then the motor is toast. Also check the hose and dust passage, but I fear that it is the motor.
Sorry...

Dyson DC14 all floors.


sept 30,08 bought dc14 all flloor. After 3 to 4 uses it started making lots of noise when on carpet setting. I examined the roller brush and it was cracked at one end. I returned it Oct 13 ,08 and got another dc 14 all floor. Now this one after 2 uses has the same problem only a larger crack in the brush and a small piece of the brush broke off. Very dissapointed.

Burning smell/lost suction


Is the brush roll turning while on the carpet. If the belt is old, then it has stretched and will slip causing a rubber smell. But if it is an electrical smell, then your motor is failing and will need to be replaced.
