My DC04 is playing up again! 😦 This has to be one of the most unreliable vacuum cleaner’s I’ve had. I replaced the motor last year after it burnt out (what a nightmare it was changing that – anyone who’s taken one of these things apart will understand when I say that it should be a puzzle for "The Krypton Factor").
This time it’s intermittently cutting out and there’s an arcing sound coming from the switch, so it sounds like the cable has got a break in it at the switch. But can I get it apart, can I buggery! 🙂
So a bit of googling turned up this really good article on how to fix it…
I’ve just ordered myself the bent screwdriver and will be having a crack at this myself. I don’t like letting things like this beat me! 🙂
