Ok... Its a bit tatty but its a DC01 and my first one!
So first looks is pretty good, all stickers are present and MINT and no fading at all!
It needs my special touch (Refurb) so thats down on the list - parts required:
Definatly swivel soleplate - old ones cracked - works fine but sometimes interfereces with the brushroll.
Belt is genuine and is in good condition - not streched
Motor is excellent and suction is brilliant despite the blocked filters
Changeover valve works perfectly and the Pressure Relief valves work fine.
The hose however is broken at the bottom, with the machine off the hose falls out of the bottom cord wind - with the machine on its fine so *might just drop some glue and and see how she goes.
Cord has been shortend, both at plug and button, it only winds 4 times now but is fine for what I need length so until i need it to do long distance from plug ill leave the lead in place - and whoever has done the cabling knows really well as its done perfectly - mabey the family I bought it off has an electrician in the family?
its damn good!
and from watching lots of Beko1987 and other people who have done DC01's I knew exactly what to do, my grandad just watched me whip the screwdriver out and do all the bits and bobs as if Ive ever had one before - ive never touched one until today!
Im just happy ive finally got hold of a DC01 to add to my collection!
