Nope, just a screw driver. The key are the covers for the handle. Just pry them apart from the body. Then you can access the screw holes that hold the two body parts together. Took mine apart as the motor sparks a lot and you can smell loads of ozone. Seems like the coals that connect the power to the motor are broken or unevenly burned away. Rest seems fine will try to replace the coals.

Hope this helps

Replace pump in model 7920


You're better off letting a small appliance store service dept handle repairs on this unit. They require tools to dismantle them.

Let a repair facility such as Sears repair it. They require special tools to be dismantled.

The motor is working but brush not spinning


DC07s have two drivebelts that turn the brush bar - one connects the output of the motor to the clutch, the other connects the clutch to the brush bar.
You can check the latter simply by removing the sole plate and looking. Unfortunately the other belt is hidden under a plastic cover, so you cant see if it is okay or not without some dismantling. This cover is not easy to remove and requires a Torx driver to under the securing screws.
If, after removing the cover, the other belt is okay, then you have a faulty clutch. New clutches are available on eBay reasonably cheaply, but again good tools and DIY skills are required.
Have a look at www.dysonmedic.com which has some excellent info on dismantling and repairing a DC07, but unless you have access to such tools, and feel confident to tackle it, it's probably time to call Dyson or a Vacuum repairer.

How do i change the bely on my Dyson rootcycle


DC07s have two belts - one connects the output of the motor to the clutch, the other connects the clutch to the brush bar.
I suspect the belt you are to refering to is the one from the clutch to the brush bar. Unfortuenately the other belt is hidden under a plastic cover, so you cant see if it is okay or not without some dismantling. This cover is not easy to remove and requires a Torx driver to under the securing screws.
If, after removing the cover, the other belt is okay, then you have a faulty clutch. New clutches are available on eBay reasonably cheaply, but again good tools and DIY skills are required.
