Reassembly of DC05 motorhead
« on: June 08, 2016, 12:18:28 AM »
Can't work out how to reassemble a Dyson DC05 motor-head that had a Panasonic SDS1204SD motor, with the new YDK replacement motor unit in a modified housing from Manchester vacs. There were no instructions from them as to where each of the 3 wires go and nothing is labelled either. Any clues out there please? Would appreciate a phone call 01743-860572 - I'll gladly pay reverse call charge for it. Video might help if available.

One is live, one is neutral, one is the extra neutral spur. Two are colour coded with plugs.

If you can't figure out where three wires go when you took apart a unit that had the same three wires, then you really shouldn't be doing jobs like this. Take it any competent local vacuum repair shop, show them what you bought and I am sure they will work it out.

Conversion kits of that nature assume a basic level of technical competence on behalf of the buyer. Refitting three wires usually doesn't require a video:'(

If you want to send it all to us in bits we will reassemble it for 15 (our minimum charge) plus 8 return carriage.

Mvacs beat me to it lol
What he said ^
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.

Always take photo's on your phone of anything before unplugging it!

Might have been more useful if the new leeads out of the YDK housing had been as long as the originals on the old motor.
