I need to strip down a DC21. (I suspect a wiring issue for the electrical supply to the power head.)
One machine screw is accessible next to the cord-rewind button, and a second is under the top filter.
There must be more screws holding the cowling in place. It seems likely that they are under the two large wheels, but I cannot figure out how to get the wheels off.
There is no screw in the centre of the wheels, nor is there a "hub cap" that pops off to reveal the screw.
Each wheel appears to be made as a single molding, although I cannot be certain of this.
The wheels may simply press on over a slight bump on the axel, in which case you just have to pull them off.
BUT . . . I don't want to break anything by forcing something not designed to be forced.
Have any of you taken this type of wheel off?? Suggestions?
