Power cord has been split accidentally - needs to be adjoined to new plug

The Dyson was accidentally run through the power cord it was obviously turned off quickly. Most of the length of the cord remained intact but has lost 18 inches from the cord length near the actual electricity plug. Can this be joined to a new Dyson plug for the machine to operate safely again. Can this be more complicated than it sounds and will this have done any dangerous harm to the Dyson.

SOURCE: Broken electrical cord

The belt can e replaced but I recommend you should take it to your local vacuum cleaner service center. They may even be able to fit a new plug on the end for you if the damage is at the plug end.

SOURCE: cord getting stuck, won't come fully out.

Hi Karen. Chances are your cord has a kink in it which is preventing it from coming all the way out. Pull the cord out almost as far as it will come and then twist the cord one way or the other and pull to get the kink out of it. Once you have it all the way out you can start closest to the machine and smooth out the entire cord to be sure that the kinks are more or less permanently gone.

SOURCE: Dyson 07 plug gets very hot after prolonged vacuuming

Electrical current passes through the electric cord and plug - it will get warm, that's normal. If the problem is worse where you smell an electrical burning smell, only an authorized dealer can fit a new power cord to your vacuum cleaner. Call the Dyson helpline, they will let you know who the closest repair dealer in your area is.

SOURCE: need to reclace power cord

Greetings,

I have gone ahead and taken pictures of how to change the cord on a Dyson DC07 upright. Here's what you'll need to have handy in order to complete this repair:

- T15 Torx Bit Screw Driver
- Dyson DC07 Power Cord For All DC07 Models, Part 905449.
- A 2mm or Smaller Flat Head Screwdriver (width of the tip)
- Needle Nose Plyers
- Patience (haha)

The cord above is actually a link back to our site if you have yet to purchase your cord. We carry most every Dyson part.

IMPORTANT: MAKE SURE YOUR VACUUM CLEANER IS UNPLUGGED BEFORE DOING ANYTHING ELSE!

Step 1. First thing you'll want to do is to unwrap the cord from the machine, and remove the handle from the upright part, then slide the hose all the way down the wand, and remove the hose from the handle assembly completely and set it aside. Also remove the dust bin assembly completely from the machine as well.

Step 2. Once you've remove the handle from the machine I find it easier to work on if you lay vacuum on it's back, with the switch button facing upwards. Now remove the T15 Torx bit screw that is directly below the switch actuator. I have circled the location of this screw in the picture below:


080ce87.jpg
Step 3: After you have taken off the screw, you're doing to need to remove the switch box housing from the vacuum that the screw was securing. Simply use your flat head screw driver, and pry the two small arms upwards. Be careful when prying, the plastic components on Dyson vacuums are really cheap quality plastic, and I can't tell you how many times I have seen these plastic parts break. Here's a picture of the location of where you should pry the switching off:


357199b.jpg
Here's what the vacuum should look like after the switch housing has been removed:


eb76162.jpg
Step 4. Use your needle nose plyers to remove the terminals from both of the switch poles. Also be careful when removing these terminals, don't force it or it will break the pole right off of the switch, and you'll then have to replace the switch along with the cord. Also you'll need to remove the two white wires that are connected together apart, also using your needle nose plyers.


0ebca47.jpg
Step 5. After you've removed the two terminals connected to the switch, as well as the two white wires that were connected, follow the electrical cord up until the point that it enters the vacuum cleaner to the rubber cord protector. Lift straight up on this cord protecter to remove it from the vacuum.


90104f6.jpg
Step 6. You'll have to now slide the cord out through the cord protector so that you may install the protector on your new cord. Unfortunately as you'll see, your new cord does not come with the plastic terminal protectors that are on the end of the wires, so you'll need to take off these plastic ends on both the black, and the white wires that come from the cord. The other wire that you see in there that has a white wire with no plastic cover, and a black wire that does have the plastic terminal. There's no need to remove the plastic terminal from the wire that runs down into your motor, just leave these alone. If you look closely at these plastic terminal covers, you'll see that one side of them have two little ridges on the inside, also that the bottom is flat, and the top rises upwards on one end. To remove these plastic parts, use your 2mm flat head screwdriver and insert it through the top part that has the two ridges on the indside. While your screw driver is in as far as it will go, lift upwards away from the wire while pulling out the wire at the same time. Repeat this on the other wire as well.


5d505de.jpg
This is how the wires look like without the terminals:


d0ba44f.jpg
Step 7. After remove the plastic terminal covers from the wires, pull the cord through the rubber cord protector and remove your old cord. Open your new cord, and now you'll have to feed the two wires through the cord protector. Simply push the cord through the ribbed end of the cord protector. You normally can push the cord hard enough so that the ends of the wires will come out the other end fairly easy. If the wires don't come out, use your needle nose plyers to pull the metal ends of the wires through the rubber cord protector.

Step 8. Reconnect the wires to the switch, as well as connecting the two white wires together. Here's how the wiring should look like when done properly:


2a63631.jpg
Step 9. After reconnecting the wires to the switch, and to the other white wire, you'll need to put the switch back in place, along with the cords, and the cord proector. You can see little channels that the cords actually sit in to keep them from pulling out. Place both the wire on the bottom that goes to the motor, as well as the electrical cord into these channels. The two white wires that are connected together go to the left of the switch. Here's how it should look like when you're finished:


df00511.jpg

Simply put the switch housing cover back over the switch and cords, and screw the Torx bit back in, and then test the vacuum to make sure that the cord works.

I hope that this repair was helpful to you with fixing the cord on your Dyson DC07.

It seems that it could be a problem with your power cord. I would start by checking to make sure it is good. If so, then check the switch next.

My dyson dc14 wont turn on


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

If your vacuum doesn't turn on, make sure that plug is fully inserted into a fully functional electronic outlet. If it still not turning on after verifying this, it could be that the power switch is malfuntioning. You may need to replace the power switch by opening up the handle of your vacuum. I suggest to refer to your manual on how to replace the power cord or contact Dyson for troubleshooting steps. 1-844-679-1647

How do I take about my Dyson DC11 to replace the retractable power cord assembly


While it doesn't require a collection bag, a Dyson-brand vacuum cleaner can still suffer the problems of wear and tear that are prone to any vacuum cleaner--for example, a frayed power cord. If the power cord of your Dyson vacuum cleaner has become frayed, change it immediately to avoid a dangerous electrical mishap. You will need a replacement cord from an electronics service center, along with a few common household tools. You do not need electrical skills to complete the task.
Follow this steps on how to replaced the power cord assembly:

1 Unplug the Dyson vacuum cleaner's power plug from the wall outlet. Press the button on the top front of the plastic collection cover. Lift the cover off the front of the vacuum cleaner and place it aside.

  • 2 Trace the power cord to where it enters the back bottom of the vacuum cleaner. Remove the screws from the panel surrounding the power cord with a Phillips screwdriver. Remove the panel. Aim the beam of a flashlight inside the compartment so that you can see where the wires at the end of the power cord wrap around two screws on the motor assembly. Loosen these screws with a Phillips jeweler's screwdriver.

  • 3 Pull the power cord out of the compartment and dispose of it properly. Strip a 1/2 inch of insulation from the ends of the two wires of the replacement power cord. Run the wires into the compartment along the path of the original power cord--pushing the wires into the grooves inside the compartment.

  • 4 Tie a knot on the cord on the inside of the compartment to prevent the cord from being pulled out.

  • 5 Wrap the exposed end of each wire of the power cord around the loosened screws. Tighten the screws. Replace the panel and reattach the screws. Stand the vacuum cleaner right side up. Place the bottom of the plastic collection cover into the bottom front slot on the vacuum cleaner. Push the cover back on the front of the vacuum cleaner.

    How to replace electrical cord on Dyson ball vacuum cleaner. Our puppy chewed it.


    Depending on where it has been chewed, you may not need to replace the whole of your cord. Ask your local electrical supplier, or possibly somewhere like B & Q, if they have an 'inline' plug and socket to repair your existing cord.this would resemble the type of plug and socket used to connectd the power chord to a lawnmower, except you would not be buying the sealed type.Then you could simply cut out the chewed part of your ccord, and fit the two new ends, one the plug and the other the socket.It is no more difficlt than fitting a new domestic 13 amp plug on a cable.It is also a safe but much cheaper solution, so you should save money too.

    Dyson DC07


    First, check your outlet for power...plug something else in. Then, inspect the cord and check the power switch. You can use a multimeter to test across the power plug of the vacuum in the ohms position. Turn the switch off and on. If it does not change readings...the switch or cord is bad. If it does, it might be the motor.

    DYSON DC05


    My friends Dyson DC05 was loosing suction and then it stopped altogether one day. When she took the filters out there was black soot in them so it was obvious that the motor had burnt out. I think this happened because she wasn't cleaning the filters regularly (go do yours now!) I replaced the motor myself and wrote a guide with photo's at www.tasweb.org
