My dc25 just stopped. I spaced, and stepped on the cord with my left heal and pushed the vac forward and to the right, and when the slack ran out, it stopped. It wasn't a very hard tug. I thought I pulled the end out of the outlet, but it was still plugged in. I tried other outlets. It was dead.
So I thought I pulled the cord ends loose on the inside. I'll just open her up and check the end of the power cord, right? Now I can't get the "switch cover" off to look at the connections. I took the three screws off and still feel like I'm breaking it.
I have the buttons and springs in a pile but no idea how to get them back in, if I can't fully remove the "switch cover". I see the exploded views, but no picture of the underside of the cover, nor actual step-by-step on how to replace the power cord. Does anyone have any experience with this, or ANY idea?
