OK, but be warned... it's not so difficult getting the thing apart, but making a neat job of reassembly has been known to drive grown men to despair. And that's because you have to remove the airbelt. But first things first:
1. remove the hose
2. remove the hose-retaining ring
3. remove the flap that covers the green filter.
4. remove the screw beneath that flap nearest to the handle (there's a deeply recessed screw on the other side, but you can ignore that)
5. remove the clip at the back of the machine where the airbelt joins (lever it off carefully with a screwdriver)
6. this is where it begins to get interesting. The airbelt is in two parts - the bulky foam strip and a thin material cover. The cover is held in grooves, top and bottom, running all the way round the machine, by two thin plastic strips around which it is wrapped and which just slip into those grooves. The first challenge is to get those strips, and the covering material, out without damaging them. Just prise one end out with a small screwdriver and work your way around the machine - it's more a matter of patience than anything else. (The second challenge is getting it back neatly!) 
7. remove the ends of the foam strip far enough to reveal two plastic clips that hold top and bottom of the body together
8. prise those clips off with a screwdriver.
9. it should now be possible to lift the top cover off. It can be a bit fiddly getting it off over the neck where the hose plugs in, but it does come off.
10. the cable rewind spool is now revealed in all its glory.
11. if you've found my advice helpful so far, here's a final piece... don't try to fit a new cable to the old spool - fit a complete new spool.
12. good luck!
 
I value feedback, so please remember to rate this response.

Why does nothing happen when power button pushed?


The Dyson cords are known to go bad, test the cord and see if there is voltage. If this is too mechanical for you, please take the vacuum to your nearest vacuum repair shop

How do I replace a severed power cord on hoover windtunnel upright bagless model U5280900?


It would be the easiest way, attaching a male plug to the end of the severed cord so it can be used with an extension from the power outlet. Safe too if you duplicate the wires in the old portion, as the cleaner may or may not be earthed.

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.
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 jeweler's screwdriver.

  • 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.

    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.

    I had the same problem with mine and it was the power cord. There was a break in one of the wires, probably from years of winding and unwinding as well as the stretching that occurs when trying to reach distant places without unpluging and pluging into a closer outlet.

    Power cord won't retract on anaerus 5500 vacuum cleaner


    What you can do is take out the six hex screws on the bottom of the machine while on it's back. When all the screws are out, flip the machine back over, making sure you don't lose any of the screws. From there, open the bag cover and leave it open. Remove the cord release button. (The big rectangular button near the rear of the machine. Usually a firm pull up will get that thing out without incident.) Grasp the handle with one hand and hold the machine steady with the other. With a firm pull, pull upwards. This should seperate the chassis from the main cover.

    With the machine guts exposed, place the main cover on the side for now. Now, this next part you can do one of two ways. You can either leave the cordwinder wires attached, (there's only 2 connected wires to the cordwinder, the white and black. Black is on the inside prong while the white is on the outside) or you can take the wires off. I find it easier to disconnect the wires.

    Now, remove the cordwinder from it's place, making sure you take note of how the cordwinder rests in the groove from the motor. From there you can rewind your cord fully. Once this is complete, continue winding the cord while holding the cord in place. Take note of the spring. Make sure you are winding in the direction that is TIGHTENING the spring. Make sure you don't overtighten as the center plastic piece will surely snap due to the overtension. This may take a few tries, but be patient. Once you have met your estimated tension needed, replace the cordwinder, put the cover back on WITHOUT SCREWING IT BACK IN PLACE and replace the cord rewind button.

    Replace the large cord release button and pull your cord out at least halfway. Hit your Cord rewind button. If your cord rewinds fully, congratulations, you got it in one try. Replace the screws and you are finished. If not, re-open the machine and continue rewinding the cord in the direction that TIGHTENS the spring with emphasis on overtightening. Once you break that center plastic prong, you need to buy a new cordwinder, so emphasize patience. If you're getting frustrated, go take a break and come back. Repeat until the cord winds fully, replace all the screws and you are finished.
