Hi guys got one of the dyson am07 fans the other day it just died...

Just stopped working and now there is no sign of life at all i have check the power supply and the fuse and there both ok

I have the fan in all bits and i cant see any burnt or melted parts what can be causing the fan to show no sign of life

Many thanks

I have contacted them via email however all they have said is that my product was not regestered at purchase and going by the serial number they are suspecting it would now be out of warranty and i need proof of purchase which i dont have...

All new and in the box?

There goes any chance of a guarantee!

Oh, so maybe not a new one then? I think you have missed out a bit of the story....
Normally: you buy something, if it stops working you send it back. Why didn't you do that? Please tell us more....

I don't know what's in one of them things, but do you have a multimeter? i would think that's your starting point - rule out the easy stuff first (eg supply in/out, fan windings resistance, etc).

If you don't know where to start with a multi meter how do you know there is live & neutral getting to the the board

That's the problem with buying shyte like this. Just buy a normal fan with an AC induction motor and it'll run until the bearings give up.

A marvel (perhaps) of complex electronics but utilising the ubiquitous synchro motor to provide the oscillating function

It's a standard BLDC driver, but the PCB has been coated, so very little chance of a decent board level repair.
