That's clean to some I have had.

The switch, remove the screw then insert screwdriver in hole at the back, hold neck and slap screwdriver forward, do the same in opposite hole and repeat if needed.

Nice! I have a tip for the switch cover removal :)
A flat blade screw driver shoved into the sides of the back of the button/switch and then prised forwards always works, it might make a plastic cracking sound but it's fine :P
You did a good job though like always! well done  ;D
DC14s are tanks, just need a slightly longer motor life. Do plastic parts often break on DC14s? Nope. DC41- Sexy looking futuristic and powerful machine. Just needs a better designed cleaner head wheel and cyclone clip along with a dense metal rod in the chassis.

Anyone know how a electronics smell starts. This is frustrating me. There is unknown sound that was not there before?. I use the hoover, then 30 seconds later it absolutely reeks.  The amarture and carbon brushes are in great condition anyone know why? It smells

Ive got a scabby purple cyclone you can have for postage if you want.  No handle though,  which is what you need really...
