How to replace the cord in dyson's dc07


Things You Will Need



  • Dyson DC07 power cord


  • T15 Torx-bit screwdriver


  • Small can


  • Camera or cell phone with camera


  • Flat-head screwdriver, 3/4-inch or smaller


  • Needle-nose pliers



Tips



  • Do detach the black wire that goes to the motor as it does not require removal.



Warnings



  • Do not work on the power cord when it is plugged in.


  • Do not force the plastic-covered connectors from the switch or you could break the male ends. Pull them off firmly but gently to avoid breaking the terminals.


  • Do not apply too much force to the plastic arms that hold the housing in place. The plastic arms are fragile and may break easily.



References



1 - Unwrap the power cord from the Dyson DC07. Detach the handle of the vacuum cleaner by pressing the release button. Pull the handle from the hose. Slide the hose down the wand and push the button at the bottom to release the hose from the machine.

2 - Press the button at the top of the dust bin handle to remove the canister bin assembly from the Dyson DC07.

3 - Lay the machine on with its back with the power switch facing upward. Locate the Torx screw directly beneath the switch actuator. Remove the Torx screw, turning it counterclockwise. Place the screw into a small can so you do not lose it.

4 - Remove the switch box housing held in place by the Torx screw just removed. Carefully pry upward on the two plastic arms that clip the housing in place. Take a picture with your cellphone or camera of the open housing to make it easier to reinstall the wires where they belong in the channels and spaces provided.

5 - Center the needle-nose pliers on the female connectors from the power cord attached to the switch. Apply equal force to pull them from the male ends of the switch. Also detach the two wires that connect together within the housing, identified by the clear plastic connector between them. Depending on your machine\'s manufacture date, the wires might have different colors. For example, they may be white and brown, all white or one could be blue. Disconnect a total of four wires -- two from the switch and the two connected together. Leave the other wires alone.

6 - Trace the electrical cord on the machine until you reach its protective cover where it enters the Dyson DC07. Lift up the cord protector to remove it from the vacuum. The cord protector has slotted sides that fit within the plastic. Slide the cord protector from the power cord.

7 - Remove the plastic covers that protect the female ends on the power-cord wires that connect to the switch. The new power cord does not come with these. Insert the tip of the flat-head screwdriver through the top of the plastic connector with two internal ridges. Lift upward and away to pull the wire free from the connector. Repeat for the other wire. Push the female end into the plastic connector until it snaps into place. Repeat for the other power-cord wire.

8 - Thread the new power cord through the cord protector. If you have trouble pushing the wires through, reach in with the needle-nose pliers to pull both wires through the rubber protector.

9 - Reconnect the two separated wires back together by inserting the male end into the female end of the other wire. Reconnect the two wires from the power cord to the switch. Reinstall the switch housing on the machine. Align the wires in the channels provided to keep them from being pinched or pulled out when you reassemble the housing. Look at the photo you took earlier as a guide, if necessary. Insert the wire that goes to the motor in this channel and the white wires connected together to the left of the switch in the area provided.

10 - Put on the switch housing cover and secure it with the screw you removed earlier. Reassemble the vacuum in the reverse order you dismantled it.

Electrolux Vacuum Renaissance Power head brush won't turn


if it is making a humming sound but not turning you belt is broken, if it is not check the reset switch (little res button) if that doesnt work check the connections between the cord of the powerhead and the wand, the wand and the hose, and the hose and the vacuum
give the hose itself a good look over sometimes the wires up by the grip break in the casing

My home has a central vacuum system hook-up but no vacuum installed. My friend upgraded his central system and gave me his Eureka Mega Boss central vacuum system and the accessories, including the pow


The power head requires 120 Volts. Some hoses have a receptacle in the handle for the power head plug, and the hose has a cord at the wall inlet end that plugs into a receptacle. Some hoses have a plug at the wall inlet end that plugs into a 120Volt receptacle built into the inlet. The hose plugs into this receptacle when you push the hose into the inlet. The power for this built-in receptacle is wired with line voltage when the system is installed.

I read the post about the Silver Moon continualy shutting off and requiring the new hose part SES 125. However, what i have noticed with my Silver Moon is that it only shuts off when using the floor brush....


Hi.
My wife has the same vacumn, and has already replaced the hose, and again it was shutting off continously with the power head.
Rather then spring another $150.00 plus for a new hose, I decided to take it apart to see if it had a shorted wire..
There are several small screws along the length of the control portion, as well as two small screws that hold the end cap (where the hose goes into the heavy plastic control part),

When I got it apart I did not see any shorted wires...however what I discvovered was where the hose "swivels" are 3 metal contact bands, and some electrical lubricant.
On the other side was a small circuit board with three paper thin copper contacts which lined up with the metal bands.
The bands looked a bit worn.
So I ever so gently bent the copper contacts out just a tiny amount further, and gently cleaned (with a bit of alcohol) the metal bands to take justy a tiny bit of what looked like an excessive amount of electrical grease.

I reassembled the unit...and so far so good.

Have a small ball caught in between the handle and the hose and was wondering if the handle comes off


Depending on which style hose you have:

Dolphin Handle: There is a small retaining clip on the hose that can be removed by a flat head screw driver. Make sure your hose is not connected to the inlet and the power cord is disconnected from the inlet valve. If not you will receive an electric shock

Non Dolphin Handle: There are two screws under the handle. One at the back and one by the suction control. Remove those two screws, and pull the wire cover off by the suction control and when the piece is removed the hose should slide right out of the handle.

I think the switch on the Rainbow E-series electric hose went bad. Is there an easy vway to verify it's the switch?


Hi, the only way, is to test that it has power at the swirch with a circuit tester or voltage meeter, or test the plug on the handle where you attach your power head power cord, or Rainbowmate power cord to.
If it does not get power there, then test that the switch is getting power.
If you have any more questions let me know. I am a Rainbow seller, and a Rainbow expert also.

Thank you,
Ralph

Hi-My power head won't work anymore. How do I know if it is the switch or the wireing or how to fix it.


Can you take a test reading with a meter from the vac socket or the hose handle. If you have power there test the cord for continuity before the motor. Disconnect the wiring from the switch and bypass directly to the motor.
TIP Most power head cords fail at the stress point where they enter the head, but inspect your cord connections at the vac and hose as well. Please post make and model

Very likely it's the cord at the nozzle neck. These cords flex when you vacuum and they often break internally where the cord goes into the neck. Turn the vacuum on and wiggle the cord at the powerhead and see if the powerhead comes on and off. If this happens, then you will have to replace the cord.
On some of the early models, the receptacle in the hose, where it plugs into the top of the wands, will break away from the plastic pins it sits in, and the receptacle will slide back into the handle, which means that it will not plug into the powerhead connection when you connect the hose. You can check this by looking at the end of the hose and observing if the receptacle is sitting flush with the opening it sits in. If it is pushed back, it will not make a complete connection with the powerhead cord that is sitting at the top of the wands.
