Dyson 05 Motor

I am greatly impressed with the replacement motor. It arrived in aprompt manner and I found it easy to install. The cost benefit of maintaining our existing Dyson far exceeds that of buying a new one and filling up landfill.

Back from the dead

After 10 years of use my Dyson DC08 died with a bang. I had a look at the new models; but Dyson has moved it's manufacturing to another country and the internet reviews tell stories of poor quality of the new models. Also, the price is as high a ever at around $800! After watching a YouTube video made by the guy at vacuum spot, I realised it was easy to remove the old dead motor and install a new one. All I needed was a Torx15 screwdriver. So I bought a new motor from vacuum spot for $130 and a new filter, a T15 screwdriver for $10 from a tool shop online (vacuum spot should real start selling these too by the way) and it took me about 20minutes to complete the repair and give the barrel a good clean. It now works like it did when it was new and I've saved $600+ ;)

Renewed vacuum life - thankyou

Saw the Youtube video and ordered the motor and filters. All arrived in a few days.
Had it installled in a flash and now have my dyson working as good as new. I am ecstatic that this option was available and able to be done at home - due to the informative video. Could not afford a new one and saves waste. An invaluable service, thankyou.

New Motor Needed

Hey guys,

This is a great service. Prompt item in the mail and combined with the Youtube videos, made it very easy to fit the new motor. New Dyson at a fraction of the cost.

Thanks again,

Super Service

Ordered DC19 motor.
Received fast and the swap went super easy with the Youtube video. Saved me a lot $$$.Thanks

by Tom 25 March 2016

Great service

I ordered a replacement motor for my DC19 after watching u-tube video. The removal was quite simple although I needed a torx screwdrive. Replacing the motor was also simple except getting the torx head screws back in. Would have been simpler with philips head screws.
by Stuart 7 March 2016

Great Service

Easy to order, quick delivery. I will be using this site for all Dyson spares.
by Dan 2 March 2016

Excellent - saved mega-bucks

We have a 10 year old DC08 which had a burnt out motor. Various quotes indicated that it would cosy mega-bucks to get it repaired, so we might as well buy a new one. Then I found Alec's YouTube videos and saw how easy it would be to replace it myself. It took just a few days for a new motor and filters and within a short time all was working again - better than before!
by PN 23 February 2016

Overseas customer

Purchased new motor & filters for my DC19. We are based in Dubai and couldn't find a source for these parts here and Dyson UK, gave the typical response of "probably time you should upgrade to a new vacuum". As we were heading home to Aus for a break, ordered the parts before we left, they arrived a few days after we arrived in Aus. Fitted as per the youtube video, once again life is good and our Dyson sucks.

A review of changing my Dyson Filters

I would like to thank the people at Vaccum Spot, for their help and assistance with the videos that were first class,.In a previous life I was a Maintenance Fitter and I prided myself on doing things the right way.So when it came to changing the filter on a DC08 ,
it was a piece of cake, and when it came to changing the motor was equally simple because of the way the technician showed in the video
My Dyson now is as good as the day it was purchased and I am so thankfull to your service engineer in showing me how easy it was , I was a little hesitant at first but he showed me that there was nothing to be alarmed about. So once again I am grateful for your help and assistance. Yours sincerely Reg Pearson

Easy install new motor Dyson DC19

Prompt delivery of replacement motor (and new filter). Easy to install motor following excellent onlinbe video instructions. Under 30 minutes. Dyson now as good as new. Do wonder why Dyson who boast of their superior technology don't use brushless motors.
by Steve 24 September 2015

Very Happy.

YouTube clip was clear on what product we needed and how to fix it. We went from "about to throw it away" to fitting a motor and now vacuuming once more with our Dyson DC08. My husband was pretty chuffed - he felt like a Vacuum mechanic. Who would have thought it was so possible and easy. Thanks.
by Kath68 17 September 2015

Fantastic service, fast turnaround

After trying to source a new motor for my Dyson DC23 through a well known cleaner franchise and quoted over $250, it was great to find exactly what I needed at less than half the price. Arrived in 3 days, replacement a breeze by following the informative online video. Thanks guys, great service!

Fantastic Service

We ordered a new motor and new filters for our Dyson vacuum cleaner of 10 years.
After talking to a very nice person on the phone (Scott) who answered all of my questions with patience , I was pleasantly surprised about the knowledge this guy had about spare parts, origins and quality of their products.. This was customer service first class. The video on line was a big help for hubby to remove the old motor and put the new one in. Not only that ...but it only took 3 days to be delivered. Cannot recommend this company enough. Thanks very much again.

Dyson DC19

I repaired the vacuum cleaner for a widowed friend of mine who is struggling financially. Watched Alec's you tube video on how to change the motor and thought "you've got my business". Ordered over the phone and was offered the cheaper motor which was delivered within 3 days. I had to watch the video again to verify that I had the filters in the right way. The cleaner is reborn, works beautifully and I have a very satisfied lady friend. Plus I got the "brownie points" Thanks Alec and VacuumSpot. I have passed your card onto Cheryl for her future filter purchases.
by Jack 20 February 2015

Purchased replacement motor

After watching a couple of Youtube video's on how to replace the motor, and managed to come across Vacuumspot. Wonderful service, and even managed to arrange speedy delivery for anxious wife ! Vacuum now working as-new, however substantially cheaper than re-purchasing. Vacuumspot very easy to find parts, and very competitive.
by Andrew M 30 January 2015

I'm very impressed with the prompt delivery, and service video. Very professional.
I'll certainly be back and have revommended to family and friends

Top marks Vacuum Spot!

We live in a small country town without appliance repairers,so when our Dyson DC19 came to a sudden stop I spent a lot of time vainly searching for the appropriate repair manual. I eventually found Vacuum Spot's web site and saw Alec's concise video on replacing the motor on that model.
It took me only about 15 minutes to remove the motor and about the same to replace it after receiving a new motor and exhaust filter from them a little over a week later.
Congratulations Alec and Kerry, for a business really well run!
by DonL 24 July 2014

These guys are great

after 11 years the motor on My DC08 fried itself, after a quick search and youtube video I decided that it was simple to buy and replace that motor. Step by step instructions on the youtube video made it a simple task, less than a week later its all up and running perfectly again.
by Tillo 27 June 2014

All Good!

Motor arrived on time and installed as it should - with help from the really clear online video. DC 20 working a treat now. Thanks.
by John 23 June 2014

Thank you vacuum spot for the parts and instructional YouTube video on how to install. We got it working in about an hour with no problems.

The motor and filters are great. The vacuum cleaner had been sitting in storage under the house so by changing the motor we got out favorite vacuum cleaner working again.
by VickiLemaire 29 April 2014

Happy with service- thanks

11 year old Dyson DC08 did a motor but all other parts were perfect. Found this company in a you tube tutorial showing how to replace motor. New motor arrived in the same week, easy to install following the video, now good as new!
by cmnailtech 16 April 2014

very pleased

This was my first ever online purchase and used Paypal.
The product arrived here in Fremantle WA within a week and thanks to Alex's video the new motor and filters were successfully installed same evening.
The wiring and connectors as Alex noted were a bit different but easy to figure out and the whole task proved to be very satisfying,
Thanks Vacuumspot

Dyson DC08 Motor Review

Motor works great, video how-to was also extremely useful and helped save me a lot of time and broken bits (no doubt!) Tried it out today and works a treat! Thanks!
by Geoff 23 March 2014


Had no problems assembling the motor,piece of cake with the rest of the stuff, the video on u tube was very informative.
The machine goes well,as new in fact.
Thank you
by Lou Dorf 23 March 2014

Excellent delivery time, correct product, great YouTube "How To..."

Was quoted well over $350.00 by a well known vacuum cleaner supplier and repairer.

Ordered DC 08 motor online with Vacuum Spot $107.00 approx. all up delivery included.

Delivered inside a week.

Already had the YouTube loaded. Alec shows you how to remove and install motor very simply.

Can't fault Vacuum Spot and will tell everyone I know.
by Steve from Rosebud 10 March 2014

really appreciated the you tube video

I was very pleased to find vacuum spot when our Dyson had a issue. After watching the video and then taking apart the vacuum I realised I could do this and discussed the parts required over the phone and ordered on line.
All went smoothly and very happy to fix vacuum at a reasonable cost and hopefully many more enjoyable vacuuming to come.

by Barry 23 November 2013

Terrific you tube video made the repair easy

Thank you for sending the parts through so quickly. I was about to throw my dyson out but came across your video and then decided to order through you. Its was a great idea, and for $100 or so I have a vacuum with new life. I probably would have just bought a new one for $600 but this was a much better way to go in the end
by Jatz 8 November 2013

Dyson DC08 Motor too hard to get from original equipment manufacturer

Thanks Vacuumspot for selling these motors at a very competitive price but without the nausea that the original vacuum manufacturer gave me. Received in good order, quicker than expected and my new motor works like a treat. My Dyson is now as good as new.

Add Your Question

I have a dyson dc 08 i need a motor for the code on the motor is YDK YV-2201 6C04-240V . Thank you.
The part number for the motor is either MO48 which is a chinese copy or you can also use the English MO44
Hi, I received the motor today, thanks so much. Having trouble putting the housing back together. I saw you have youtube clips, which one might help me? Cheers
Hi Rachael,
I am not sure which model Dyson you have but by far the most popular model people choose to repair is the DC08 so I would say go to YouTube and search.
How to change a Dyson DC08 vacuum cleaner motor in under 10 minutes.
If yours is not a DC08 let me know and I might be able to recommend a better video.
I have a dyson dc19 is this the motor you recommend for my machine?

Cheers Rache
Hi Rache,
Yes the MO48 is the appropriate motor for the Dyson DC19
hi there i have a dyson dc 8 i need a motor for the code on the motor is YDK YV-2201 6J03-240V REGARDS STEVE
Hi Steve,
Both our motor M048 and m044 will work for your vacuum. I personally prefer to use the m044 as it is a better quality motor.
Hi there,

I have a Dyson DC08. I have removed the motor using your you tube video...it was brilliant by the way, thank you.

The code on the motor is:
YDK YV-2201
6J20 ~ 240V

Do you have these motors in stock? How much are they? And what is the code to order?

Thank you very much,

Mob: 0418 394 232
Hi Michael,
Thanks for the thumbs up on our videos :)
The motor you need is either mo48 or mo44.
They both work but mo44 is the better quality english version. It was originally sold for the DC14 so it has a shaft but it fits perfectly in the DC08 so if you can spend the extra $30 it is well worth it to get the superior lifespan from that motor.
THe URL for the mo44 is
Does the Dyson dc08 motor come with new brushes?
Hi Nick,
certainly the motor is all new and yes it comes with brand new brushes.
I compared the picture with the motor of themy unit. There is a different.
Both the blue and red cables in yr picture are at both opposite end of the casing. The motor I had are both housed closed to one another halfway between the 2 black legs (??). The model number printed on my motor is YDK YV 2201 $L21 _240V

Do you have one that I am looking for or the one you have could be used on my unit?

Thans and Regards
HI Joey,
Either the MO44 or the MO48 will fit your machine.
The MO44 has the shaft but it will fit inside the plastic conical shaped motor locator that fits on top of the motor.
The MO48 can work in exactly the way the original did however the cord just connect to the terminals on the motor even though it does not have the white block.
In our service center we prefer to use the MO44 it is a better quality motor.
DC05 dyson motor ydk; vv-2100-1; 0g18-240v
Is your motor compatible?
Many thanks
Hi there,
Yes this motor MO48 is equivalent to the YDK motor from Dyson.
Does the DC08 motor that you advertise fit all Dyson DC08 and if not can it be returned if it doesnt fit.
Hi There,
Yes it does fit all DC08 vacuums that were purchased in Australia.
Yes if I am wrong and it does not fit you can return it for a refund.
Regards Alec
