Power head does not work canister does . There is voltage at the power head.


Although it could be a multitude of things that keep the power nozzle from operating properly, the most likely is, since it's an Epic series, Is that the power nozzle elbow assembly needs replaced as the fine wires and top of the elbow tend to break/short after 5-10 yrs. of use.
It's also very well possible that the power nozzle reset switch or hose switch at top of handle is defective. Try plugging the power nozzle directly into the hose handle assembly and turn machine on. If the power nozzle still doesn't work, it's definitely a problem directly with the power nozzle.

Hope that helps!

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.

Power head not working


Steve:


The terminals for the power head plug into a terminal inside the machine. You'll need to unplug the machine from the wall and open the canister to find where the terminal wires plug into. You probably need to open the lower half of the canister to find those terminal plugs. It would help if you have a multimeter. The wires actually run through the hose, so I would check the hose carefully to see if the wires have been damaged there.

My Ultralux 2000 vacuum power head does not work on my machine but does work on a different machine. What are the possilbe problems? I tried replacing the hose with a new one and that didn't help.


It's probably due to bad wiring connections between the wands, hose and wand, or power nozzle and wand. If it came with the Sidekick, try using it on the end of the hose. If not, simply try using the power nozzle on the end of the hose (no wands). If it works, then the problem is going to be with the cord sections in the wands. Check them good for cracks, breaks, and discoloration at connections. Replace if necessary.

Vacuum is on and working but no suction from the main power head, I've lost my owners manual laura


Is there suction at the end of the hose? If so, then there's a clog in the power head air flow section. To double check, detach the hose, drop a coin into power head and see if it falls through.
You can clear it by using the hose and crevice tool to **** the clog out from the brush end. If this doesn't work, try using a knitting or crochet needle to pull clog out. It may also be possible to reach it with needle nose pliers.

There is a trouble-shooting site for better explanations.

try having someone turn the machine on and off while you pull the cord in and out with the cord more angled towards the on/off switch. Sometimes these models have a break in the cord rewind and will not put the power through to the motor.

Keep in mind this is repairable, and if the unit is less than 5 years old it should still be under warranty.

Good luck .

My Dyson DC15 has suddenly become very reluctant to turn left. This is only the case when it is switched on and irrespective of whether the roller brush is running or not. When the cleaner is switched off...


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

Although strange, I believe we have a solution. It sounds as though the cleaner head hose is blocked. When the machine is running the suction will be pulling against the bloskage causingt he hose to contract and prevent it from swivelling the left. When switched off there is no resistance in the cleaner head hose which is why it moves normally.

You simply need to check and clear the blockage from the cleaner head hose and this should resolve the problem.

Details on the blockage procedure can be found on our website at www.dyson.co.uk/support. From the Support section homepage, click on "My machine is not working", pick you machine and follow the diagnostics for my machine is not picking up correctly.

I hope that this information is useful to you.

Kind regards
Darran

Power head stops and starts


Sounds like there is definately something stuck inside it. You;ll need to dismantle the floor head carefully using a screwdriver. Make sure your machine is switched off though if it is a power head and not an air turbine turbo head. Once inside check the main roller brush as well as the side caps as these can become clogged. Also check the main dirt channel leading to the pipes of the vacuum. 
Dont forget to rate, thanks.

Hoover f5520 steamvac duo upright wet washer


Your problem is inside the vacuum hose where they have installed a small coiled hose that carries water to the smaller power head for upholstery. After taking this apart I found the inner smaller coiled hose was broken at 2 different places. A very poor design and poor quality material. The hose looked like it was rotted. This could be from old detergent left in the line or maybe the wrong detergent. A job to get it apart but if you remove the three screws that hold the side plate over the electrical you can block that hose off and the machine will work on floors only as the water to the power head is terminated.
