Title: Which genuine Dyson cable will fit a DC-01?
Post by: Hong Kong Phooey on April 17, 2013, 10:20:09 AM
I need to upgrade the power cable on my trusty DC-01.

I can't find a new genuine one anywhere, but was hoping to adapt a genuine item from another model.  I'm fairly handy when it comes to electrics so wondered if anyone had done a similar job?  Would like to have the molded Dyson plug on it and a little longer would not hurt.

I have read that you need to take the connecting spades off the unit end of the original cable and transfer, which seems easy enough.  Anything more difficult than that?


While we're here... I can recommend the spares service from Manchester Vacs.  I sent them a long list of parts to rejuvenate the DC-01 and they packaged it all and sent over to me in Hong Kong.  Shame I didn't order a new switch, which went pop a week after!  Next job...

We generally use after-market cables. You wont find a genuine DC01 anything now unless its old stock.

However, we do keep a genuine DC04 all-grey flex that will easily adapt to your DC01. Quote part number 911859-02 to Claire in our shop (they are not listed on our shop yet as we are in the process of building a new much bigger and better one [with international shipping built in BTW] - but we have them in already).

Switches we have too.

Thanks for the good shout for our service, I'll put it on our testimonials.  :tiphat:
