Having problems with your Vacuums ?

How do I remove a motor from a Dyson DC04? The bottom plastic cover can be removed by unsrewing the tork screws but the cover beneath the filter won't come off

Answers :

I can't say exactly how to do this, but when you can't find the screws to take something apart, they are usually hidden by something else. You did good looking under the bottom cover, but what you're looking for is elsewhere. If there is a seam or line around the middle where it looks like two halves fit together and you can't find anymore screws, use a flat blade screwdriver and GENTLY start to pry them apart to see if they start to separate. If it doesn't give easily, don't force it. Many times a cover will snap into place and then is held secure by screws.
\015\012Good luck, and please remember to rate this. I want to know if this helps at all.
\015\012Thanks, and good luck!

Found the clog and cleaned it out. Heres the problem...now the power nozzle light comes on and the vacuum "on" is lite up red, but it will not come on. Checked the filters and the bag.

I have a DC07 and the brush wasn't rotating and I had no suction at the brush but perfect suction through the hose. I noticed a large build up of dog hair around the brush so I took off the cover plate and removed all the hair, cleaned inside the floor/brush housing and cleaned out the hose. I also cleaned the filter and removed the other air access cover and made sure that they were clear.
