What do the guy's in the trade think of all the on-line repair  video's that are out there?

My own thoughts are that it is or could be dangerous to encourage the have a go types that don't have a clue. :o

I agree.

Many of them are not accurate either. Many contain misleading information and/or gloss over the hard bits.

There is a hilarious one where some American shows everyone how to remove the cleaner head by prying it with a huge lever. You can hear the plastic cracking as he does it.  :biglaugh:

Most are created only to sell the parts. They care not if some bloke ends up with a machine in bits he cant put back together again.

We get many 'Youtube machines' (that's a machine brought in in a bin bag in bits) - ones where some guy took it to bits after watching Youtube stuff and cant get it back together again.

I did always like the old Dyson Medic site though. It was handy in the early days.

Agreed, had many a call out to washers dryers and ovens to fix them after the hubby had ago. :'(
I don't mind some one with electrical or mechanical experience having a go, but it scares me the number of the general public who are prepared to try and open up a Dyson because they have seen it on-line. :o

Suppose on the plus side you get the bag of bits to reassemble. ;D
