Where do I get drier sheets for my dyson to get rid of smell?


Attempt to eliminate the odor rather than mask it it. Replace the filters and clean the cyclone chamber and dust bin.

I have the Dyson DC 28. After cleaning out the filter multiple times I still had the wet dog smell coming out from the vacuum. I called Dyson's support line. The rep told me to put dryer sheets in the clear plastic bin and let it run for about 5-10 mins, make sure the bin is clear of all debris first. I did it and it worked. Not only is the smell gone, the dryer sheets removed all the remaining dust stuck in the bin. I was happy!

Our vacuum smells of dog when in use. We have clean out all the filters but it still smells horrible. Any suggestions?


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC14 Animal. You may want to take a look at the page linked below to make sure you've washed the filter correctly - this should be done at least once every 3-6 months. Use cold water without detergent, and allow up to 12 hours for the filter to dry completely before replacing it.

http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=1324&product=DC14-ANIMAL_US


You can also wash the clear bin when separated from the cyclone pack - however, the cyclone pack must never be washed or submerged in water. Make sure the clear bin is totally dry before reassembling the cyclone assembly.

If you need any further help or advice about using or maintaining your Dyson cleaner, please call us free on 08002980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US) - one of our experts will be happy to provide the assistance you need.

Kind regards,

Jack

Dyson dc18 smells like dirty dog


I would clean the filter and let it dry completely for 24 hours. if you put the filter in wet and the run the vacuum the moisture well go in to the cyclone and the dirt would attach to it causing a snowball effect if you will, causing the vacuum to build up with debris and to smell. so clean out that filter really well and let it dry really well then try it out. if it still smells then i would replace the cyclone. they run anywhere around $80.

On turning on different noise then noticed smell of burning then just stopped working and no power since. DC 07 Dyson.


Unfortunately your motor had burnt up..most times this is due to not cleaning or replacing the filters...the filters get dirty and the motor gets no airflow to cool it....very common on dyson vacs

OUR DYSON DC 17 ANIMAL HAS A SMELL OF ABOUT 50 DOGS THAT HAVEN'T HAD BATHS FOR A YEAR.. WE HAVE TWO DOGS IN THE HOUSE AND THEY ARE KEPT CLEAN. WE'VE WASHED THE CANISTER, THE FILTER,BRUSHED OUT THE HOSES.....


Try buying "Citronella" from an essential oils dealer (maybe eBay?) Apply 6-12 drops on the paper filter element...you'll LOVE the smell.
P.S.
Haven't you asked this question before?

Dyson Animal .. how to get to Chyclone chambers for cleaning??


The cyclone assembly is glued and cannot be taken apart. The best way of cleaning it , is to remove the top held on with three hex screws , the bottom collecting vessel and the perforated filter. Then blast the cyclones from above with either a pressure washer or hose with a high water pressure source. Leave to completely dry , then reassemble.
