BUY PARTS - Buy all the parts and special tools you will need to have everything in place for this task. The parts you will need are the Cable Float Assembly, two Butt Connectors, Liquid Tape, and a Shrink Tube. Special tools to make the job easier are a heat gun, a wire stripper/crimper. The Liquid Tape, heat gun and stripper/crimper can be found in a local hardware store.
DETERMINE CUT LOCATION - The problem here is the short length of Cable between the splice and the Motor. There is no extra Cable to play with. To save as much of the Cable on the motor side, we must cut off the Cable right after the end of the metal butt connector on the motor side of the splice. This picture shows the approximate point of the cut.
CUT OFF OTHER END OF SPLICE - Cut off the splice on the Cable side so you can slide off the Cable Grommet. It does not matter where you make this cut since you will be discarding this old Cable.
CONNECT WHITE WIRES - Insert the white wire from the Motor into the end of one Butt Connector and crimp it using a crimping tool. Insert the white wire from the new Cable into the other end of the Butt Connector and crimp it. Since this cleaner operates on 120 V, the wire colors must match - dark to dark and white to white. White will be neutral. Caution: If you haven't joined wires with Butt Connectors before, practice on a couple of pieces of the old cable. Because of the limited cable length on the motor side, you will only have one chance on this splice.
CONNECT DARK WIRES - Insert the black wire from the Motor into the end of a second Butt Connector and crimp. Insert the brown wire from the Cable into the other end of the Butt Connector and crimp it.
TEST CONNECTION - Pull on the wires on either side of the Butt Connectors to make sure the connection is solid.
