Hello, I found you guys while searching the internet for answers as to why my dyson keeps shutting off. :(

Refit the brushroll into the base chassis

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

Re-assemble the turbine and neck, and refit the cover

ila_rendered

Then screw the turbo brush together and fit the baseplate

ila_rendered

Re-assemble the mini turbo head

ila_rendered

And the job is done!

ila_rendered

ila_rendered



It sold for 55 even with the bag door fault declared and shown the the buyer, who did not care, she had been wanting a 'nice Miele' for her dad for a while, and seemed impressed with this when I demonstrated it to her! So that's 25 to buy, then used for nearly 5 years, then sold for 55, so 30 profit for changing my mums hoover, bargain!

Screw the bag holder down

ila_rendered

Pop a nice new pre motor filter in

ila_rendered

fit a new bag

ila_rendered

Fit the bag door latch

ila_rendered

Reassemble and fit the hose entry parts, then fit the bag door. Line one side up, and fit the hinge parts, then lever the other hinge side on



Re-assemble the piston indicator

ila_rendered

and screw it down

ila_rendered

Then refit the tools and tool door

ila_rendered

Sadly glue did not hold the hinge, but I was completely honest when listing it for sale and it still sold within 20 minutes, so it wasn't worth worrying about!

Main turbo head now

ila_rendered

Pop the slider back into the hood
4
Fit the motor and screw the clamp down

ila_rendered

Refit the cord reel, not forgetting to pop the cables through the chassis to the top side

ila_rendered

Wire everything up on the top side

ila_rendered

Re-assemble the switch cover

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

And refit the speed control stuff underneath

ila_rendered

And bolt it all down

ila_rendered

Fit a nice air freshener

ila_rendered

then fit a new post motor filter with cage

ila_rendered
5
Side parking slot refitted

ila_rendered

Power socket and wires fitted

ila_rendered

And run around like so, with the plug fitted in place

ila_rendered

The bumper/seal can be fitted now

ila_rendered

Handle bottom fitted

ila_rendered

Refit the sound deadening once it's fully dry to both halves of the casing

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

Pop the motor fancase holder in

ila_rendered

This is the thermal cutout for the motor. Clean this up so it doesn't give false readings and overheat when it shouldn't!

ila_rendered

6
The last thing to come out is the side parking slot

ila_rendered

and it's all done, and ready to be washed

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

and dried, polished and ready for reassembly

ila_rendered

Wheels first

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

Put a smear of grease on the metal stub at this point

ila_rendered

ila_rendered
7
Lots of sound deadening sits in the bottom of the machine too

ila_rendered

Staying with the lower chassis, 2 screws hold the carry handle together

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

The furniture guard/motor housing seal lifts off then

ila_rendered

Under these two screws is the power socket and wires

ila_rendered

Once removed, the whole lot comes out

ila_rendered

Underneath now

ila_rendered

Pop each wheel off, and you can see the screws underneath

ila_rendered

Undo all 8 screws and the wheel assemblies come off, and can be split further for lubrication

ila_rendered
8
The main on/off switch lifts out now, you can see that both are on the same circuit

ila_rendered

it goes to here on this packed connector

ila_rendered

Undoing some more screws enables the whole rear part to lift up, which will include EVERYTHING!

ila_rendered

The cord rewind lifts out of the unit and the blue wire unplugs from the connector block, and the black from the switch.

ila_rendered

Unplug the motor plug

The motor is held in by the one screw in a frame

ila_rendered

And once unscrewed the motor can be removed

ila_rendered

The fancase frame clips onto the top part of the vacuum

ila_rendered

All the sound deadening can be removed

ila_rendered

As can the connector block

ila_rendered

9
The post motor filter cage lifts out next

ila_rendered

And these two screws need to be undone

ila_rendered

Which enables the switch assembly to be removed

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

The part that rotates and turns the potentiometer when the power slider is adjusted lifts out

ila_rendered

The power and cord rewind pedals pop out, each pivot is one big clip

ila_rendered

The slider itself can be removed

ila_rendered

Onto the electronics now. The black rod is a switch that is activated when the floor tool is parked in the cleaner, it turns the machine off (and has never worked)

ila_rendered

It lifts out, along with the unplugged switch

ila_rendered
10
Next lid opened now, to reveal the bag door! (brand new bag fitted so I could sell the machine with a new bag...)

ila_rendered

To remove it, push the 2 black hinges either side inwards one at a time, they pop off and the door lifts off

ila_rendered

The bag door catch fell off in the car after some enthusiastic cornering when I forgot it was in the boot (I miss the Xantia, it did corner well!), so this is what it looks like if I had just taken it off...

ila_rendered

Underneath the bag door, the hose inlet is fixed in with 4 screws

ila_rendered

Once they are removed, it and the bag seal flap fall off

ila_rendered

4 tabs split the unit down further still

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

The bag support is held in with a screw either side

ila_rendered

And a spring which sits like so on the bag support and braces/springs against the main body of the machine
