Question about Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
I remember seeing this exact question awhile ago but there wasn't an answer and I haven't been able to locate the website I found it on again. When I was taking apart the main motor housing, I had a friend watch carefully as I separated the pieces and I'll be darned if the 2 wires didn't pull off their connections and neither of us saw where they came from! I haven't been able to find a wiring schematic. Thank You.

SOURCE: How do you take the DC11 apart?
Unplug the unit from any power first.
To get the unit apart you have to Carefully pry off the wheels from both sides of the unit to allow access to another 4 torx screws. Use a longer flat blade screw driver and insert this between the wheel and the body of the vacum as close to the wheels center of rotation as much as possible. This should allow you open the clamshell like case. Once inside you can test the power switch and connections. My switch tested good but there is a problem with the power cord that I am trying to determine.
I am trying to replace the cord but the cord reel assembly and cord seems tighly integrated so I may end up buying the replacement power cord assembly if it is available for purchase to the general public and not only service centers. I will try the plug into the wall assembly first as it is easier to replace.

SOURCE: Connecting motor part
Hi Charlotte, Yes, colour coding of wires is a nightmare, isn't it!? Red and brown both signify "live", and blue and black both signify "neutral". So you should connect brown to red, and black to blue. I hope this is helpful. If you need more guidance, please post here again and I'll see what more I can do for you. I value your feedback, so please remember to rate my response. Good luck!
