SOURCE: Dyson upright

hi this is an expensive repair and would probably be cheaper to buy new one the problem you have is with the motor bearings seizing its expensive to repair because when dyson made thes vacs they were made so you need special tool to take them apart so replacing the motor would require calling a dyson bloke out as i found out with mine when my switch failed i tried removing and replacing myself but when the bloke came out he used a thin piece of metal down the side of switch to press button to release switch after i payed him to do this 2 months later i got your problem and called them back they tryed selling me new one as the repair was 50 quid more than a new vac.
Hope this is some help sorry i couldnt give you good news

Did you check the inlet hose down by the brush roll, it may be clogged there. Your system says that that must be a clog. Did you drop something like a big marble down thru the hose and have go all the way thru?

SOURCE: My dyson dc14 has a strong burning smell

A DC 14 has two belts - one that connects the motor ourput to the clutch mechanism (the dial that lets you turn off the brush rotation completely is part of the clutch mechanism), and another that connects the clutch to the brush bar.
Unfortuneatley, the one that connects the motor to the clutch is hidden under a plastic cover so is very difficult to check.
With the machine running, and NOT in the upright position (i.e. as if you were vacuuming a floor), make sure the brush bar is actually rotating. If it isnt, you need to check both belts and the clutch. Due to the cover being held by three "Torx" screws, one of which is very difficult to get at, this isnt easy.

If the brush bar is rotating, then the burning is an indication the motor is about to fail. Motor replacement is possible depending how good your DIY skills are, and again you'll need "Torx" drivers to dismantle it. Website www.dysonmedic.com has some very good info.

You need to replace the belts. When they are worn they put off a smell. Here is the belt you need:

SOURCE: My dyson (not upright) is making a funny popping

Mine did this too. It is the carbon brushes inside the motor that have gone out. Looking for replacements for the UDS1451VNR motor that is in it. Motors run about $95, brushes about $15 for te set if you can find them.

My dyson filter in ball keeps popping out when it gets hot. whats wrong with it


Pretty common problem with that model... Caused by unit not having enough air flow across the filter. This higher pressure is greater than the latch holding force and pops off. Blow it out with my air compressor and it should fix the problem

Dc 14 animal emits a terrible smell after about ten minutes of us


You can take a Febreze sheet and put it into the canister/dirt bin where the dirt spins around. It'll spin around whilst you vacuum your house and it'll spread the fragrance through the vacuum and hopefully get rid of the smell for you.

You can also blow out the cyclone with an air compressor or a leaf blower by opening the bin door on the bottom of the dirt bin and blowing up the cyclone in the middle - perhaps there is something lodged up there that is causing the foul odor.

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
