Picked up yesterday, a DC04 Absolute as shown in the attached photos. The cleaner owes me nothing, and I was told by the owner that 'it just stopped working' (heard that before, folks?). A quick inspection has revealed a broken wand handle, no post filter, a broken catch on the cyclone lid, and no tools. In addition, the motor makes a high pitched whine the like of which I last heard when running up the engine on a Harrier. No burning smell though, and the brush bar does turn, albeit slowly. Every instinct tells me that I have nothing more than a breaker on my hands here! Does anyone know of any reason why this model might be worthy of a rebuild, before I do the deed?
