Introduction

This replacement guide should only be needed if you are entirely sure that the power cord is severely damaged and needs replacement. The power cord component lies at the very bottom of the device. Because of this, most all of the other components would need to be removed before any replacement of the power cord can be done. One of the most important tools needed after surfacing the power cord is a pair of pliers.

  • Next, you must remove the upper black trim which is connected to the inside liner with tabs. To do this you must hold the interior walls still, while rotating the trim so that the tabs line up with the slots. (tabs cannot be seen at this point, pics are to give you an idea of what you cannot see inside the device)
