Is the DC24 brush bar motor the same as the DC25 brushbar motor?
Can one be adapted to fit the other?
As Dyson technical folks, these are questions we are often asked. The reason is, that Dyson refuse to make available the brushbar motor for the DC25. No, we don’t know why either. You can find out more about Dyson DC25 brush bar motors on our article here: All about the DC25 brush bar motor.
Naturally, people wonder if the brush bar motor off another similar machine, the Dyson DC24 for example, will fit. After all, Dyson do choose to make available the Dyson DC24 brush bar motors. You can read about those on our article here: Dyson DC24 Brush Bar Motor.
However, the answer to the question is no. The DC25 brushbar motor will not fit the DC24, nor will the DC24 brush bar motor fit the DC25. They are completely different units. Let’s take a look.

As you can see, they are entirely different units.
The technical guys at Dyson are not stupid people. They know how to save money. They understand that using the same part across several models will save them money and thus lower production costs and maximise profit. They do use many parts across different models. The DC18 cyclone unit (not the perspex bin and flap though) is the same as the DC25 for example. However, on these brush bar motors, there must have been a sound reason why they couldn’t use the same one for both models. There must also be a reason why they choose not to make the Dyson DC25 brushbar motor available to the trade. The cynics out there may suggest it is so they can flog you an £80 DC25 cleaner head instead. You may very well think that, but we couldn’t possibly comment.
