How I repair DC04 Hoses
« on: August 18, 2015, 10:46:48 PM »
I did a DC07 hose repair topic some time back, so here is the DC04 one.

I had occasion to put a DC04 hose back together earlier



As per the 07 one, the remains of the hose have been pulled out of the cuff using the finest* pliers

DO ensure the lower cord hook/clip is on the hose BEFORE you start (found that one out the hard way...)



The removal process is the same too, however you need to hold the cuff in suck a way that you can hold the cuff, screwdriver AND push the bleed valve button in



Voila



The bleed valve button pops off one side of the black ring, allowing removal for cleaning



The locking ring. I opted to leave this the  :censored: alone as it's a HATEFUL bastard if the springs pop out and do one FOREVER



The hose sits on top of the inner part, in an inferior way to the dc07, as it's not clamped externally. So, lashigns of glue, and push/twist until the end of the hose hits the stop. I then drip glue around the top join too.



Push the 2 parts back together and voila



Gonna let the glue set overnight and give it a medium pull test and see if it holds.

Lovely guide! I had to run tape over the end, thickly and push it in hard, crap way but worked.
And if something goes missing just vacuum the area and empty it out onto a surface
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.
