Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Dyson dc03 faulty cable The cable from the mains plug to the on/off switch has split and needs to be replaced. How do I gain acess to the switch ? I am a competent engineer but I do not wish to damage the switch/cover to repair/replace acble.

Answers :

I've never worked on a DC3, but whilst the shape and position of the switches changes from model to model, most are secured the same way.
\015\012If you look closely at the switch cover (the bit you press for on/off), there is usually a small slot to one side. If you insert a thin, flat tool (a small screwdriver or flat file, etc) into the slot, you should "feel" it disengage a tab. If you now gently prise up the switch cover, it should come off easily.
\015\012Hope this is of some help.

I have a Eureka Upright vacuum (4800 Series). When I try to start it by turning the switch on, it wont. For few days, I was able to get around this problem by repeatedly turning the switch on and off until it turned on but that does not work any more. Could it be something related to the switch it self or the power cable. My wife mentioned that one of my kids might have pulled the power cable too hard (at the back of the vacuum). Any help to solve this problem will be very much appreciated. Tha

Spare wire? My SEBO X4 flex had to have the fex shortened because the cable sheathing had come out of the internal gripper and there was a couple of inches of two strand wire hanging out the cable entry point before the insulation sheathing started. No problem doing this but on the live switch terminal there was a piggy back spade connector. The second wire from this went down inside the handle and just ended with a bare terminal hanging in space. It hadn't come off anything, there wasn't anyth

110-220V Dear Sir, I purchased a kirby sentria vacuum cleaner from ebau two weeks ago. I currently resid in the UAE with 220V power. My maid has plugged the vacuum to work with it unaware of the voltage difference, a terrble noise as mentioned came from the cleaner as well as a smell. She unlugged it and stopped t from operating. Can you please let me know how can i assess the damage? If this model has a switch from 110 to 220V IS there a solution with transfromer or motor to make it work? Thank

You may have burnt up the motor field when it was plugged into a 220V power source. But there are drop down transformers you can get to reduce the voltage form 210 to 110. AS Radio Shack or similar store would have them. ... Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum
