Title: dc21 needs a new cable fitting into my recoil unit , what other models fit ?
Post by: jamesey on January 30, 2017, 07:00:54 PM
ive got a dc21 motorhead cylinder hoover that has lost its neutral , ive stripped it down and found a snapped wire on the end of the recoil unit that needs a strip down to get to it , ive never done a recoil unit and looking at other posts it looks a bit fiddley  :'(
i was just going to buy another identical on but then saw a post about some of these are different , with mine being a rare dc21 i thought id ask the question , thanks

If you can live with a euro 2 pin plug (by changing it for a normal plug for example), I'll do you a new one cheap enough to make your eyes water.

Can you post a photo of both sides of yours?

To me they look the same but the cables come out the opposite side

I never knew there were different types of rewinds between the 08/19/20/21 :/ You learn something new everyday! :icon_nod:

I hardly ever refurb cylinders, I have two DC08s which I'm reluctant to refurb for no reason

Cylinders seem to sell very quick for some reason. Very easy to swap the motor out . Chuck them 08s my way lol

Depends on where you live I guess lol

If you're ever up Birmingham (depending if I still have them later on in the year, might still do) let me know I can sell ya the pair at a good price

I have a blue one with a brand new looking contact head, hardly used but needs a motor and filter cover, possibly some hose connection damage

and an 08 origin with a missing head, blown motor and faulty cable rewind  ;)
