DC07 Brush Control + Hepa Restoration
« on: March 03, 2014, 11:40:20 PM »
Picked a funky looking vac out of my recent haul and decided to do a thread!





Had all its tools too



They were first into the washing box



The hose was like new



Then I worked out why, pattern hose. Meh, works well enough!



Stripped the wand as much as I usually do



Switch housing off



Switch and wiring



Switch out



Top end empty







Post motor filter



Bit of flash flare but that went in the bin





Elbow next





Pre motor filter





Whip this seal off



Strip the release valve down



And wheels off



U bend out and Ah!



Green thing is a plastic whatever



Time to flip it over and work from the bottom up (I haven't actually seen under this yet, I just know it runs and the brushroll turns...)



Baseplate out



Baseplate stripped



Belts were so worn I could lift this out with ease without the lifter tool



I grabbed stanley and got cutting



Quick going over of the bristles with my little wire brush and good as new!



Bearings out



Brushroll carrier out



I imagine the brushroll and clog stopped this getting used very much, hence why its quite clean

Clutch cap off



Clutch cover off



I presume this date wont match the build date of the machine? Still, scary to think this is 11 years old now!





Pop the circlips off



And off with its head





Locking tab out





Seal off







and Diverter valve out



Airway cover out



4 Motor cover screws and out comes the throbbing heart of the beast...









Will run some brake cleaner over the motor later to clean it up a bit. It runs perfectly fine, is even smoother after a drop of 3 in 1 on the top bearing

Pre motor filter elbow off



And one chassis!



Cyclone next





Scraped the crusty bits off, dont want to clog the plughole when washing it!



Top screws out



Not too bad



Cyclone seal out



Fins off



Shroud out



I wish these stripped down more!



Dug the rod screw out









Non washables (sad thing is I know where they ALL go without thinking!)





Will get it washed tomorrow once the drying DC07 Origin White is dry in the drying spot!

And to think this would have been taken to the tip due to that clog and brushroll! It did shit all when I tested it prior to stripping it down anyway!

Sorry for the delay! Bit retrospective but meh!



Changed the belts whilst everything was drying



Flipped this round to avoid any clutch issues in the future















Trivials done,  time for re-assembly



























































































































































And good as new! Up for sale now, below are the poncy pictures of it!
