Question about Dyson DC14 All floors Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
Moved into an apartment and the first time I vacuumed with my Dyson DC14 I sucked up this very fine powdery silt like substance which had probably been under the carpet for a long time. It is clogged in the holes of the yellow piece that fits inside the clear canister. Not sure if it has caused any damage to the vacuum- how can I clean yellow piece and rest of inside and make sure I get all of the powdery stuff out of vacuum?
Easiest way I have found to clean this is to use a can of compressed air or an air compressor (like what you blow up car tires with). Take the vacuum outside and blow it out. I did the same thing as you with my Dyson. FYI - this dust will also plug the lifetime filter. Use the compressed air to blow out the filter also. If you just wash the filter before blowing it out, it makes the drywall dust stick to the filter and makes it harder to get out.

Hi carol the yellow cylinder with hundreds of holes is the passage of vacuumed air from container as you are aware and understand if you use h/brush and clean outside of cyl of excess fluff etc then use a suitable probe /darning needle or better as i use a screw driver as used by watch makers ? you can poke out all holes and shake the vac now and again to allow any debri to fall thro coned pipe of cyl it is tediouse but a good job done when you come to vac again also may i suggest you remove the lower cover that covers the rollerbrush and you may will find this area is also gunged up to? so pick out and brush clear hope this helps/inspires you to diy maintain the most important tool in home best wishes
