I knew about this forum a couple of years ago by chance. Just watched youtube about changing WM bearings, that guy did dyson refurbs as well, so I looked for info about dysons out of curiosity and discovered this site. Then use it for information about different Dyson models when they're were on Gumtree, but really never had dysons by myself.
Recently I got dc07 (freebies) without suction, scratched and filthy and decided to try to refub it. Mostly I was interested in this process itself, not in a result as I already had 2 hoovers.
Just couldn't send it to skip, it was so lovely!
My Dyson had some problems: huge crack in bin flap, hole in an internal hose, old clutch with overstretched belts, no rope seal in soleplate, so no wonder that there wasn't any suction.
That's when your site came very handy (to get parts) plus watched youtube clips from forum's members (Beko, Parwaz, Alec...Thanks guys , it was very helpful).
Refurb was successful and now it's my main hoover.
Only a small problem is left, I'm going to sort it out later.
