I purchased this machine via eBay, and the picture shows it in sound condition.


However, it says "Needs repair/attention to the clutch". Can anyone help me with this?

No idea, just says that in the listing!

Thanks, it does but lacking a stair tool (by the looks of it)!

Nice find!

My gran had one of those, it lasted us years!

It could range from clicking noises to a broken belt.Dysons are generally easy to repair, email me and i can help you.

Surely you know what is wrong with it ?

Or have you not received it yet ?

I think you need to ask this question again when you've got the DC04 their and know exactly whats wrong with it. "Clutch problems" is a little vague.

I knew there were several possibilities so I am asking to see if anyone could enlighten me.

Also to let people know.

Best thing to do is replace the clutch, that way you dont have to fiddle with gears and bearings....

You can get them really cheap and its amazing the difference they make!

Have you used the machine with the brushes on? Does it make a funny ratcheting noise?
