Repairing a Dyson DC08 Cable Rewind
« on: November 08, 2022, 11:55:11 pm »
Got a slack one, in fact beyond slack. Is there a way to repair it or is it a case of replacing it if I can find one?

We never open them, although some do.

It reminded me I saw this comment on Dyson Medic yesterday on opening a DC02 one, they can't be very different.

There's a DC05 cable rewind strip down topic here. Again, they cant be so different.

Take photos and make a topic if you do it successfully.

I think I may have a go at a repair, there is also a DC02 non runner with a cable that won't stay out waiting for me at the back of the cellar

 Hi,

I have been looking for advice everywhere for this problem. The problem that I have is with the DC08 cable retract. The problem is the cable of the vacuum will not retract all the way and leaves a meter worth of cable behind. Is there anyway this can be solved?

The proper way: replace the cable rewind (Man Vacs have recycled ones in stock I see).
The bodgit way: cut the cable back by a metre and fit a new plug.

Yep. I have ordered a new one just today because i realised that there is no point trying to fix it. Thanks for your helps though.

Some claim success, but I have never managed to repair one if totally failed.

Same here. I saw a video where they opened the spring coil mechanism  on youtube thinking it would work but it failed and i gave up and brought a new cord reel from ebay.
