Broken wand on DC04
« on: August 24, 2015, 12:07:24 PM »
I collected my Dyson from the menders (new motor), and as I slammed the door the dyson moved and a piece has broken off the wand just below the cap. I don't really use the wand so does it matter? And if it does matter how can I fix it without buying a whole new wand?

Ouch,  bad luck there!

All depends on you really.  If the machine is still useable then you could leave it,  or qbond/epoxy it back together if it will,  but it wont be as strong.

Thank you both.
 It works as an upright but OH says he uses the wand!
 The only wands I can see on the net are 45 or unavailable. Is ANY wand OK or does it have to be for a DC04?

There's a job lot of dc04 bits on the bay including a wand for 18.00 + carriage.

You could try Gorilla glue or plumbers pipe weld.

Dc04 wands only fit the dc04, and theres 2 types,  one for a clutched machine,  and one for a non clutched machine.

Mvacs may be able to help you

Thank you, everyone.
 I took bluebumble's advice and rung the shop that had replaced the motor. hey said they'd look "in the back" and I've just been to collect it.

Talking of DC04 wand.  I need 2 green and 1 Lilac/purple wand caps, early spring type and a yellow or grey handle insert if anyone has any to sell, preferably from the same person so postage is kept to a minimum.

Thanks.

I charge 4,50 for wand

I'll have as many mint, unbroken DC04 ones as you have @ 4.50 and send you a courier label.  :icon_nod:
