Question about Dyson DC11 All Floors Bagless Canister Cyclonic Vacuum
I'm trying to open up my DC11 to fix an intermittent problem with the power switch, and I can't figure out how! I've removed most plastic parts, and unscrewed the nine Torx screws, and I still can't separate the housing pieces. Is there a service manual for the thing?
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.
