There are loads of Dyson repair "clincis" around for obvious reasons...:-)

Apart from the fact that a Sebo X4 is one of the best uprights you can buy (we've had one for several years), one of the few manufacturers with which Sebo can be compared has just introduced an uprights choice (S7) to its range for the first time.

That's Miele. See:

Not cheap, but Miele builds its products to be reliable and last and last and last...:-)

Dyson vacuum cleaners bring in a very healthy level of repair charges for electrical outlets the length and breadth of the UK and have for many years - hark back to your own words about "clinics".

No one doubts that Dyson models clean well, but it's not much use if they spend a lot of time in the repair shop...:-)

My son had one, but eventually got rid after it continued to either break down or break up.....

Dyson reputed to have put 85 more out of work, moving to cheap labour outside the UK.

Had a lot of good replies, the wife is still thinking about it. the dyson dc14 allergy at £200 from amazon looking favorite but due to cost will have to wait a couple of weeks.

Another option is to travel to a johnlewis and look at the other ones suggested in the thread.

Dyson relocated to Malaysia SIX years ago with the loss of 800 jobs in the UK....:-)

That's why I said 85 "more"

Around a year ago I bought a Dyson DC19 from John Lewis for £150.
I registered it with Dyson for their 5 year warranty and free tools normally around £35.
To do this I spoke to their support team on a free 0800 telephone service.

The cleaner is the best cylinder type we have bought, with superb suction and cleaning properties.

At least ten years ago I also bought a DC04 upright cleaner. I recently stripped this down and dismantled the motor to check the carbon brushes. Hardly any wear had taken place.

Around two years ago I picked up the same model from a car boot sale for £25.
Again I completely stripped it down. I found it had a new motor fitted and many other new parts.

A past friend who ran a repair shop always remarked how difficult these models were to service.
Except for the old Junior and Senior cleaners, I have found Dyson cleaners come apart quite easily.
Take pictures of the dismantling procedure if you are unsure of the assembly of the parts.

BTW. My wife uses the DC19 and the DC04 daily and she loves them.
