My DC07 recently started to give off a burning smell and is making a strange noise. The brush bar is still turning ok but I'm a bit worried about the noise. What could be wrong with it? Thanks.

Welcome Sue :)
It sounds like the motor has reached the end of its life. The motors only have a limited life and will start to smell and make noises juts before they stop altogether.

It's worth looking underneath to check for any obvious obstructions (remove the base plate using a coin to turn the tabs for a better look) but otherwise I suspect it's the motor.

Dyson do a full service for £69 which might be worthwhile as that includes replacing the motor if necessary. Have a look on their website for details:

Alternatively you could replace it yourself, but you will need to disassemble most of the machine so only attempt it if you're confident with these things. Again, you can buy a motor direct from Dyson (give them a call as it can't be ordered online) or from several online parts retailers.
