And to add to this you may open it up and find something like this.....



If it was assembled it can be disassembled - if we can't repair it then it probably isn't worth repairing !

I've bought a used cable for dc14 in good condition wire is dirty, but doesn't bother me.

get a damp cloth, spray it with some bleach based spray cleaner - hold it tight over the cable and pull through the cloth several times and it will look new.

dish all the spare cable into a bucket of water after and then pat test it - just to be sure   :grinn:

The black box which holds the wire is not going back on.
