It took the parts so long to get here that I can't remember how to put my machine back together!  I need a lot of help!

I'm sure I'm going to be posting a lot of silly questions.  I apologize in advance.  It was a simple fix, or so I thought, and then decided to take apart further to "clean".  Big mistake.  Lets start at the beginning! 

So at the beginning....What color wires attach to J7, J6, and J5?  I tried to attach pictures but they were too large!

Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the site :tiphat:

OK, it would be best if we know what exactly the help is required with. It would be better for us to understand with pictures too :)

We look forward for hearing from you
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.

As for photos - I can admit I am an idiot.  I'm usually good at repairing things (for a female in her 30's who is pretty handy!).  I couldn't afford to have it repaired, couldn't afford a new one and was desperate.  It came apart so easily!  Parwaz7862 please help!!

I'm ashamed to say I have never owned a DC15, or even used one :o I have owned all Dyson uprights from DC01 to DC41 except the DC15, DC18 and DC27 :oo

Beko 1987 can help you though :) Mvacs can too, they have experience with DC15's :thumbsup:

There is a picture of the board on the 'how to replace the motor' thread that shows the wires connected. Maybe of some help until someone can come along with an answer.

I will look at that thread again.  That's the one that helped me take it apart!

I'm figuring out a lot today, just having time to spend with it all.  Some big questions.  The blue and yellow wires should connect to black and white but which one to which?

I also am confused about the upright switch so any help with that would be appreciated.

finally....where does this spring go???

Maybe a simple crossed wire or loose wire on the switch? (If it has one)
If it's clutched then, it'll be a simple mechanical problem ;)

Well done dude!
