Dyson AM10 Hygienic Mist humidifier - Monthly cleaning

The video below shows how to correctly carry out the simple monthly or pre-storage cleaning process for your Dyson AM10 Hygienic Mist humidifier.

Cleaning procedures must be routinely followed to ensure that the humidifier continues to operate efficiently. Cleaning regimes are designed to help prevent the build up of scale within the machine, which will be more prominent in hard water areas. Failure to adhere to the cleaning regimes may invalidate the warranty.

Please note we recommend unplugging the machine for at least 10 minutes prior to any user maintenance or cleaning as some components may become hot during normal use.

Do not allow the machine to run in humidifier mode without water in the tank.

Other cleaning solutions are available. Please check these are suitable for use with plastics and then use in accordance with manufacturer's instructions. Examples of other suitable cleaning materials are descalers, foam soaps without an antibacterial agent, and vinegar.

NB: Some cleaning chemicals are harmful to the machine and should not be used. Use of these will invalidate your guarantee. Do not use: Alcohol and strong acid mixes, solvent (acetone) and oil based products, alkali bleach mixes, air fresheners, aroma oils, scented oils, hot water, brushes, abrasive materials, etc. Please do not put in a dishwasher or close to a fire.

how do you get at filter to clean it/

Hi there,

The video embedded below shows the correct way to remove, wash and replace your DC07's pre-motor filter. Under normal use, this should be done every 3-6 months. Use cold water, and make sure the filter is totally dry before replacing it - this may take up to 24 hours.

The post-motor filter is a lifetime filter, and should not require attention. Do not attempt to remove or wash this filter.
