Did this last week. HAve to say the plastics seemed more robust than the DC01!
When I got it, it was a bit mehhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s0bZcxT-5LI&list=UUv0y2E43HyJMX85p-Wxro0Q
Was a bit better with a new belthttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MxL3AYO5mxY&list=UUv0y2E43HyJMX85p-Wxro0Q
Started with the wand
Release clip off
Wand top is nicely unbroken
The collar on the end of the wand doesnt come off. I wasnt going to try either!
The two tools I found in the shed. Sadly not the original black ones though, but look the part and have a matching logo
Onto the main cleaner now
Nice genuine filter
Cyclone seal off
Yep, did that
Someone's been here before...
Cable out of the way
I've never known how to get the switch out of a DC01, wasnt about to try here!
Eva decided she wanted to fix her dyson...
Spine cord out of the top
Side filter housing out (was choked when I bought it, binned it there and then)
Upside down now
The only bit of damage on the soleplate
Not too grubby
Soleplate seal out
Brushroll stripped down
Brushroll is a bit soft, but in good order and not too worn
Brushroll housing off
The clip that keeps it upright. It never worked very well, a slight bend has helped it alot!
A date stamp
Never seen this style of circlip before
One wheel has a bit of damage though sadly
Motor housing now
Which is held together with phillips screws. Took a few minutes with the t25 before getting a torch to figure that out...
Not black with carbon which is nice to see
Bottom flaps out
Dyson used to make small components too!
Sorry for the flash flare
Clean looking armature
All but one screw holding the motor housing onto the airflow duct were torx, one was phillips...
Not too dirty
Little valve so the suction has somewhere to go when the wands in
More seals out
I got excited about these stickers until I remembered the cone came from a DeStijl...
Managed to break one of the release valves too sadly
Everything was then washed, and given a first stage polish with cif, then Farcela Paint Renovator to put some shine back on
And an exploded diagram
Spine cable (which was very difficult as the hole is the same size as the cable, rather than having a bigger hole in the dc01) and seals back on
Noticed this repair on the bottom seal, I elected to leave it alone!
Motor back in
Seals back in the motor housing
Wheels back on
Some wheel caps kindly donated by a Dyson collector! (cheers George!)
Cleaner head back on
Bumper back on
Grabbed the brushroll bits
Baseplate was in very good condition underneath the muck
New pre motor filter
And new post motor filter
Cyclone back together now
Wiring back in
Release valves in, pinched one from my spares destijl, its made of a different type of plastic, different colour too!
Cleaned the plug up too
and refitted the hose and wand
And she's done! Needs a final polish, and the top cyclone handle sticker rubbed off a bit during washing, but I have a plan for that...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ckpv7TO-N04&list=UUv0y2E43HyJMX85p-Wxro0Q
Next to a DC14 I'm selling
Been using it a bit since, it does glue itself to the carpet now, performs VERY well. Am very pleased to have added it to the collection!
