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.
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
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.
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.
