1 Unplug the vacuum and remove all accessories such as extensions and brushes. Open the vacuum's outer casing to get at the end of the power cord. Exactly how you will do this depends on the model of vacuum. Generally it simply involves the removal of two to three Phillips-head screws.
2 Follow the power cord to the two connections at the vacuum's motor. Unfasten any clips or holding bracket and disconnect the cord from the motor. Sometimes this can be accomplished by unscrewing two connection screws, other times the cord is soldered directly to the motor. If this is the case use wire cutters and cut the cord about 4 inches from the motor to give room for splicing on a new cord.
3 Insert the new power cord into the vacuum. Follow the exact same path as the old one. If there were any brackets or clips that held the old cord in place inside the vacuum or out use them on the new cord.
4 Tie a knot in the cord on the inside of the vacuum casing so that it will not accidentally be pulled out of the motor once it is in use.
5 Connect the new cord to the motor in the same fashion as the old one. With wire strippers take off about 1 inch of insulation from the new cord to expose the two wires. Either wrap them around the connection posts and re-screw, or twist the new cord wires around the 4-inch remnants of the old cord and seal all exposed wire and connections with electrical tape.
6 Replace the vacuum's casing in reverse order from how you removed it. Plug in the vacuum to test.
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
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.
I would take it to a qualified repair shop for this type if repair. Without knowing the specifics, most vacuums have a strain relief that needs to be squeezed and pryed out. Once this is out the cord can be replaced, but will need to have the correct type of electrical connectors and tools to make the connection. Most cords cost about $15 - $20
This should be fairly easy to do. With the cord unplugged, take the screw out that it holding the hard plastic cord cover onto the base of the machine. This is where the cord looks like it's going into the bottom of the machine. The next part is a bit tricky. The hard plastic piece holding the cord in can be popped out with a flat head screw driver. On each side of the cover pop the tip of the screw driver into the side and gently pull to the side. Do this on both sides of the cover and it should come right off. The cord should just pull out.
Put the new cord in, pop the plastic cover back on, and put the screw back in.
In order to get to the cord that is disconnected you need to remove the screws that hold on the frame(the red shell). You will need to remove the "fenders" that are near the wheels. In order to remove the fenders get a flat tip screwdriver and pry up on the front part of the fender, there are three clips holding the left one on and two holding the fender near the cord. You will need to remove the left wheel (the wheel farthest from the cord). After you remove all the exterior screws and the four screws under the brissels the shell should be able to be removed. Next you will need to pull the cord all the way out and there will be a clear clip, use a flat tip screwdriver and release the clip in order to remove the clear piece that holds the power cord electrical ends. Reattach the clips of the power cord and be sure when you put the clear piece back in that the two contacts are not bending. You will need to use a screwdriver to guide the electrical clips back into place. I didn't count the screws there is a lot of them. I hope this helps you
