Question about Dyson Slim DC18 All Floors HEPA Bagless Upright Vacuum - Iron/Titanium/Yellow
Posted by Anonymous on
If your DC18 shut off during use, it may have overheated due to a blockage, or because the filter needs a wash. Once the machine cools down, you should find it runs again - but to prevent this from reoccurring, please follow the steps shown in our online support guide:
In normal use, the filter should be washed at least once every 3-6 months, as shown in the video below. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 12 hours for the filter to dry completely before replacing it.
This should resolve the issue, but if you'd like any further assistance or advice, please call us free on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

Testimonial: "He was very helpful in his suggestions and after the first suggestion didn't work out he provided another. Thanks for the help."
I realize this questioned was posted >1 year ago, but in the event you still have the poor suction/wheezing or if anyone else has this issue, here's what worked for us.
Use a plumbers sink snake to unclog the "pipe". I thought it was the pipe on the right hand side (when you're looking at it) which needed to be unplugged. There was a little in that size, however we retrieved the nastiest "hairball" out of the left hand side (when you're looking at it) and after removing that, and re-testing, the suction was incredible. In addition, the "wheezing" noise was no longer there.

You can order the switch from the following sites. According to the first site, the DC17 and DC18 switches have the same part number, so I'd use the second site. It costs less. I didn't check the shipping costs, though.
