BBC Watchdog Item on Dyson Repairer Appliance Service Direct Ltd

BBC’s Watchdog recently did a piece on UK Vac Services Ltd, also referred to in the feature as Appliance Service Direct Ltd (one and the same number and data it seems). While we applaud the effort of the BBC to educate consumers on the dangers of some of the “Repair your Dyson in your own home” […]

Availability of Dyson DC01 Spare Parts

Back in 2011, we here at Dyson Medic reported on the Demise of DC01 Spare Parts. We highlighted that Dyson had pulled the plug on all spare parts supply for the DC01 and DC02 altogether, and indeed in some countries, we know they sent what was left of the spares for them for destruction at […]

Cheap Dyson Motors – 150 Reasons Not to Buy One.

If you are looking for a cheap replacement motor for your Dyson vacuum cleaner, you may well head over to eBay or Amazon or a similar site and buy the cheapest one you can find. You can sometimes get a cheap Chinese copy one for about twenty pounds. After all, a motor is just a motor […]

£18 for a Stubborn Dirt Brush? Really Mr Dyson?

The stubborn dirt brush is slightly better at some tasks than the standard brush tool. It has much stiffer bristles and really allows you to get stuck into stuff like dried on mud and the various detritus that kids leave all over houses and cars. OK, so its a nice and handy little tool and […]

Where to Buy an Extra Long Dyson Flex.

So you want an extra-long flex for your Dyson? Maybe you want a replacement flex for your Kirby? You are in luck too! Some call it a cord, lead, wire or cable – its a tomato tomarto thing. We say flex. Technically, Dyson do not supply extra length flexes for their machines. Of course, you […]

Purple Dyson Stair Tools Now Available Again

Dyson discontinued the purple stair tools some time ago. They reverted to making only grey/silver ones that were compatible for any machine. However, now they have the cheek to charge you a whopping £10 for one of their stair tools. And as you are checking out, adding a further £3 for shipping. An eye-watering £13 […]

Dyson’s over-priced mini turbine tool no longer dominates the market!

For some time, Dyson customers have been wondering why the mini turbine tool that Dyson sell costs an agonizingly expensive £45 to buy from them. It seems a little over-priced at £45 doesn’t it? “Forty five quid?” I hear you gasp in disbelief. For sure, Dyson have never been shy in selling an item at the very top end of what they […]

Want to Repair a DC01 YDK YV-940 Motor? Get an Armature!

The Dyson DC01 YDK type motor (designated YV-940) has been unavailable for some time. The DC01 was Dyson’s first vacuum cleaner in the UK and they are now almost two decades old. We wrote about the fact that Dyson has abandoned all parts supply and support for its first born here: The Slow Demise of the DC01 and the DC02. The fact that […]

The Slow Demise of the DC01 and the DC02

A few months ago, Dyson UK pulled all support for their first flagship models – the Dyson DC01 and the DC02. The DC01 was the first model that Dyson produced in the UK. Launched in 1993, that makes early models now nineteen years old. That’s pretty old for a vacuum cleaner, but there are still untold thousands […]

All the Dyson Vacuum Cleaner Models

How many Dysons are there? Dyson makes so many different models of vacuum cleaner, and are always introducing new ones onto the market, that people find the model numbers very confusing. Was the DC01 the first? No it wasn’t actually. The first widely-available vacuum cleaner James Dyson made was called the ‘G-Force’ . It was the first vacuum cleaner to use […]
