Looking for advice on replacing a motor in my girlfriend's DC-14. The old motor which failed is one of the Samsung VCM-K50VV motors which apparently are not available any more. I've got a genuine Dyson replacement YV-2200 which I am now trying fit... but Iím having a nightmare getting the new motor back into the fan casing (Iíve done this before on a DC07 no problemsÖ)
The issue Iím having is that the black wire from the new motor seems fractionally shorter than the black wire on the old Samsung one, so every time I try to line the motor up correctly with the casing, the black wire pulls out of its connector. Am I missing something hereÖ my only thought is to try and lengthen the wire from the motor with a chocolate box connector, but this doesnít seem like a great idea to have a connector floating around in the fan casing?
Any advice/thoughts? Anyone else come across the same issue?
