If you are looking to buy a Dyson DC27 motor online in the UK and have landed here, we can help. As the DC27 is quite a late model of Dyson vacuum cleaner, not very many people are offering these DC27 motors to the public just yet.
It seems, to the independent Dyson specialists though, that the Dyson DC27’s are designed in such a way, as were the earlier DC14’s, that makes the motors work quite hard. If they are not looked after, for example by not washing or washing the filters when required, this puts undue stress on the motor and can cause premature failure. That means you will need to replace your motor as they are seldom repairable.
The Dyson DC27 is fitted with what is called a YDK motor (which some people call a YV type motor as they usually have “YV” followed by some numbers written on the side of them). The Dyson DC27 motor looks like this:
So here at the Real Deal Blog, we are going to let you into a little secret known only to the trade. The Dyson DC27 shares a motor with another model of Dyson. This means that you can buy them after-market right now (because Dyson will not sell you one) and you are not tied to a “Dyson service” at seventy-something quid to get your DC27 fixed.
If you are up to the job of replacing the motor yourself, you can get the motor for £35 including UK delivery to your door!
