Sudden Dyson Death

So after vacuuming a bit with the new Dyson upstairs, I took it down to the basement to work on the carpets there which were in desperate need of vacuuming. It worked well for a bit, then clogged fatally and refused to restart.

We've removed the hair that had wrapped around the beater bar, but that didn't fix the problem. An undocumented hose was full of carpet lint -- daisy_knotwise managed to unplug that and clear it. Still no joy.

The Dyson helpline closes at 3 PM Central time, so it looks like we won't get to them until tomorrow.

Not an auspicious start.
