You have to take the machine completely apart and get inside where the motor is.take the cover off there are 3 screws 2 on the left side behind the hose and 1 on the right side back by the wheel.that will take the covr where the upright sets on the base you will see a ******** each side of the motor, take those off,that will seperate the upright from the you have to open the motor housing,there are 4 screws 2 on the front side and 2 on the bach side that will expose the motor and the cord.take out the old cord and splice in the new one.then put it all back together in reverse of how you took it apart.please leave feedback

How do I replace the power cord on my dirt devil

Not an easy chore since the cord goes directly to the motor terminals with spade connectors on the end of the wire. The job requires the complete disassembly of the vacuum cleaner
