Ok, Help !
The vac is in bits as it won't do the vortex thing with the tube in.
Tube out (the flexible sucky thing) it works fine, put it back and the
vortex stops & no pickup (infact seems to chuck it out the front).
Can't see any obvious blockages, and the belt and filters are new.
Any ideas please.

You have a blockage between the brushbar and the upright tube that
goes to the collector; presumably you've checked the obvious thing
behind the rubber flap at the back of the dyson next to where the
flexible tube connects?
If it works with the flexible hose out have you tried lying it on its
back and removing the bottom plate, belt and brushbar and trying to
suck out whatever's got sucked in in the first place?
99% of the blockages on my battle-weary DC01 have been at the
collector intake at the top, but that would mean the hose wouldn't
Also remove the lance / handle from the tube with a sharp pull while holding
the collar of the tube and blowing down the lance. A blockage in the lance
will stop it from working although it works in the standard beater position.
Dyson DC-01 works perfectly as long as it is maintained

I'm going to start visiting my local tip to resurrect 'dead' dysons I
think. Beats trying to get another job in datacentre IT :-/
All that training, self learning and work. Bastards :)
There's a bloke at Blackbushe market who does just that. Well, he
sells reconditioned ones which I think are factory (warranty) returns.
I doubt there are many casualties in the field, as from what I can see
they appear to be everlasting :-)
heh. The IT job market is picking up again. What's your speciality ?

Datacentres running Compaq hardware, be it AlphaServers, VAXen or
bloody peecees. Winduhs, OpenVMS and various flavours of unix.
2 jobs have come up in the last week though, neither involving compaq
but I've got the skills and the money int bad. Makes a change!
heh. I think we're getting way off the topic of DC01's, but i'm
originally a VMS specialist (started on 11/750's through 6XXX's,
4XXX's and Alphas) now working on various Unix variants myself.
