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.

Removing portable cleaner handle


To remove the long handle with cord attached, there is a press button at the bottom near the top of the vacuum body.. Mine is covered with plastic with press written on it.. You just press the button and pull the handle off.. takes a bit of force to pull the handle out...

The scubbers do not spin


Just fixed mine which had same problem. A little clear piece of plastic inside the middle of the handle had cracked. This piece holds the switch in place and is probably made to fail. Make sure you unplug the machine before opening it. If you take off the carrying handle you can get the top half of the machine to come off. Set it aside. Now look into the top of the bottom half and see if your switch housing cracked like mine did. It cracked where it screws down so there was nothing to hold it anymore. (The black switch unplugs, BTW.) If you are creative, this can be fixed by drilling two small holes to affix the switch to the clear part again. We also made a metal plate to hold down our clear piece. Happy fixing! :)

Replacing the power switch of the Eureka The Boss 4870 vacuum


its actually just held in place with two small plastic clips. so just gently start pulling the plastic housing up. it will pop off with some force. not so much that you break anything however. but there are no screws or anything. to get it back on you will need something to pry away the plastic section where the slots are for the clips. that way the clips can fit back in the slots instead of just dead ending into the handle. im sure there is a more proper way, but sometimes you have to get it done. my vacuum just stopped working one day. when I opened it up, I pushed the little connectors pretty hard back onto the switch. one of them clicked a bit. as it turns out it was just loose and therefore not making a proper electrical connection. so I pushed it snugly back together, jammed the housing back on, replaced the screws, and had it running again. just make sure to unplug it while you do this.

Push start button vaccumm won't turn on


I had a problem with my switch not working. The cheesy microswitch has a little nub on the back that breaks off. They kind of work like a ball point pen. I noticed that if I held my thumb against the back of the microswitch, it would click on and off.

Disassembly:
First, unplug the machine and disassemble the switch housing. There is a screw in the front. It takes a no. 10 Torx driver to remove it.
On the back there appears to be two little tabs that need to be pulled out. Don't mess with them! They are there to fool you. Instead, with a flat tip screwdriver, reach down past the tabs and pry inward (the handle of the screwdriver moves outward, the tip prys inward).
On the front is a little tab that needs to be gently pryed down. The unit should slide out.
With your thumb against the back of the switch, press the button. If it seems to be staying down on one stroke and popping up on the next, continue reading. Otherwise, you may need a new switch.

Now for the fix/jury rig:
With the plastic housing set aside. Put all the wiring and switch in it's place on the vacuum. The switch has grooves that allow it to slide onto the vacuum. Everything should go in neatly.
What you need is a thin piece of wood or plastic, about 3/4" long and 1/2" wide (a popsicle stick would probably work). Slide it between the bottom of the switch and the molded plastic on the vacuum. Make sure it is snug. Try the switch. It should be working now.

Now carefully slide the housing back on. I like to depress the switch first. Make sure the housing snaps back on. It takes a bit of force, but it should slide fairly easily right up to near the vacuum's face. If not you may want to make sure you're not interferring with any wires etc.

Good luck,

Cracked hose for Bissell SpotBot


I found a site that carrys them, not sure if they are out because just as I was about to order one I decided to try and fix mine since the crack was right up next to the handle. http://www.svcvacuum.com/bissell/steamer_hose.htm
All I did was unscrew the two screws where the button is for releasing the water on the hand piece. I thin squeezed the clamp together to remove the water hose. Once that was removed I cut the hose and then PRYED out the part of the hose in the hand piece. I then cut the hose down where the crack was. Feed the "water hose" back through the hole in the handle (I heated it with a lighter just a tiny bit to make it soft and worked it through the hole which I just enlarged a slight bit) and with pliers work it back on. Don't forget the clamp. Next just work the outter hose back into the handle but make sure to use a glue or silicone sealer or both.
Even if you get a new hose Im not sure it will come with the handle. To connect the hose to the Machine part just push in that little plastic "dot" and pull out the hose at the same time. Then remove the old hose by the directions above. There is no need to remover the inner clear hose from the machine part, only the handle

Brush won't spin when position of handle changes


The belt for this machine is very specific and only one size fits. It is not uncommon for vac shops to sell the wrong belt because the proper belt is not available from normal supply houses, so they will substitute something they think will work.

Also, assuming you do have the right belt, check the tension arm that drops down on the v-belt when the handle is brought back. This arm has a wheel/bearing with a plastic "tire" or trim that rolls on the belt to tighten it. Sometimes, this tire cracks and falls off and then the remaining bearing won't have the necessary tension to tighten up the belt.

Carpet Height Adjusment


In addition to the tab that contacts the bottom of the slider, there are 2 protusions on the adjustable wheel plate that move through holes in the housing, but only when the handle is tilted to begin vacuuming. The wheel plate has a spring that forces the tab against the slider. As the handle is moved to the upright position, the protusions move back through the holes, taking the tab away from the slider and the wheel plate locks in its highest position. Therefore, the position of the slider has no effect while the handle is upright and locked. Hope this helps.
