If you own a Dyson DC05 Motorhead vacuum cleaner, manufactured between 2000-2005, there has been an electrical fault found which required a replacement part to be retro-fitted. However, Dyson are offering owners the opportunity to purchase a brand new Dyson DC23 Allergy, RRP £300 (yes, I know they can be had much cheaper) for the sum of just £85. I have just arranged mine, and simply need to package the old vac in a bin liner with an address label ready for the courier to take when he brings the new one. New vac, new 5yr warranty, all for just £85. I was going to pay for a service call at £69, so in effect it has only effectively been £16 more for me.
