Problem opening up vacuum cleaner to get at power input from cabl

The power lead into the back of the appliance has a loose connection. I need a break down of the vacuums construction so that I can open it up without breaking any parts. Any ideas?

    Thank you Yeti you are a superstar! I had nothing to lose and just went for it with some brute force. Power cord came and had a loose wire. All sorted.



    Thank you

They're very robust you know, if its an upright, start with the screws at the bottem plate unless there's aa way of accessing the cable from the handle, on a cylinder just undo the hefty Philips screws, i don,t think you need a manual, just keep it all tidy and set out your parts on a nice best table cloth in order of removel, wish i was there with you Joe, good luck , the Yeti

2) Test the switch for open see the diagram

Check all the wiring connections to make sure they're tight.
1/2. Wiring to power nozzle motor or reset switch is loose.
1. Cord from power nozzle to upper wand. If the plastic portion of the wand is cracked near the cord connection, or the connections are blackened, they need replaced.
2. Wiring connection from hose handle to upper wand. Check for cracks and discoloration as in 1 above. Replace if necessary.
3. Hose connection to vacuum. Not likely, but possible.
4. There could very well be a break in the hose wiring.
You may need to take your vacuum, with hose and power nozzle, to an authorized Aerus Electrux service shop. They can try a new hoze to see if that's the problem. If there is a break in the wiring, the hose is probably worn in other areas as well, and should be replaced.

Dyson has no power


The most common cause of this problem would be breakage of the wires in the power cord at the point of entry to the vacuum cleaner body. With the power connected you may be able to prove this by flexing the cord at this point, particularly by pushing the cord toward the body of the vacuum cleaner. If you get any signs of life from the vacuum cleaner you can know that this is the issue (not a foolproof test, but one that can be performed safely, provided that there is no visible damage to the lead).

A qualified repairer will ensure that the vacuum cleaner is not plugged in to the power, open the vacuum cleaner casing, note the wiring connections, disconnect the wiring and and strip the external sheath of the cable back to a point beyond the breakage, cutting off the damaged section of wiring and reconnecting the wires.

How to rewire a panasonic vacuum cleaner


Once you have taken the handle off and the front plastic cover below the handle at the front and above the bag/bucket holder, you gain access into the power cable and switch connections.
One wire will disconnect easily, the other won't, so instead of trying take this wire out of its connection where many others are from the switch and the motor, cut it on the mains lead before it enters the connection and reconnect the new mains lead wire with a **** or block connector, the other should connect normally with a spade connecter,making sure its will take the amperage of the v/cleaner
Hope this makes sense!

A common problem with hoover vacuum cleaners is that a wire breaks inside the insulation just where the power cable enters the machine body causing the erratic on off situation you describe.

There is a connector box inside the body of the cleaner where the cable goes in and if you can get to this you need to check the wires for breaks you will need to pinch the insulatio as the break will not be visible as it is inside the insulation. if you find the broken wire it is a matter of cutting it back and re connecting.

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

Cleaner does not dispense


Check to make sure that the back end of the top housing is tight against the bottom, Sometimes they break loose. Make sure that the gasket at the bottom of the tank is on and is in place. Does the hand spray work? If it does then the heat inside the handle is plugged up. Pump belt broke or is slipping, could have a bad pump. The cap for the flow indictor is leaking air. There are alot off reasons why it may not be spraying.
