SOURCE: hepa filter on dyson dc01

Not sure about you model, but some of the dyson's have the hepa filter under the dirt container. Remove the container, there is a cover that comes off and the filter is under that cover.

Have you removed the bottom of the vac to be sure there is no obstructions? Check the intake area for an obstruction. Also look around the motor for vents. Are they clear? Most new vacs have a reset button. This will typically reset the motor. If none of this helps try reinstalling the filter and bag. I am not familiar with this model but most of this should apply.

Possible clogged hose.Run a broomstick or long pole through the hose to unclog it.

Then check your prefilter should be down by the front light,should be washable.

Last... be sure the hepa filter is clean an in the right way.

    Hi there,

    I can confirm that the air you've noticed blowing out of the cleaner is simply the HEPA-filtered exhaust air being expelled back into the room. It's a feature of the cleaner's design, and is nothing to be concerned about.

    I want to know WHY my HEPA filter and cover blow off my unit with force each time I turn the unit on and start sweeping...Help?


    Vacuum cleaners actually blow air through the filtration system. Over time particles will block the pores in the filter which doesn't allow enough air to pass through it and pressure will build up behind the filter and has to go 'somewhere'. Either clean the filter or replace it, and be certain to properly reinstall the assembly before turning it on.

    Are you sure that you are correctly connecting the filter, and flipping the tabs to "lock" it into the "closed" position.

    Hello, How can I clean the lower filter on our Dyson DCO8.


    HI there,
    By Lower filter i am going to assume you mean the one below the clear plastic dust bin. The machine you have described has a thick hepa filter (probably with a purple plastic rim) and unfortunately they cannot be effectively cleaned. If you are keen to try then I would suggest using an air compressor blowing from the top to the bottom.
    What I would really suggest you do though is throw it out and replace the hepa filter with a new one. If you are in Australia I would try Vacuumspot or Nelson Vacuums.

    How do I change the hepafilter on my Rainbow E series? Thanks judyc0293@netscape.net


    You have to remove rear cover (on the opposite side than the intake is) There are 2 kinds of HEPA and 2 kinds of filter covers:

    HEPA encased in black plastic - on the bottom of the unit you will see two latches and you can use a flat screw driver release them and filter cover just pops out.

    HEPA older style (white filter with black plastic frame) - there are 2 Phillips screws on the bottom of the unit and 2 more under the cord caddy. Use flat screw driver to remove the cord caddy (put it in between the housing and the caddy and it would come off)

    If you need filters - they are HERE.
    Good Luck

    Filter in Hoover Wind Tunnel Vacuum


    Definitely not. Do not use water or any liquids to clean it. Te normal use life is 2-3 years keeping it maintained. You can clean it dry with the dust brush from your vac attachments. place in a plastic bag and tap it some folks even us an air compressor to blow out the impacted dirt. you will only want to use the Hoover brand, other generic brands dont fit as well.

    My hoover wind tunnel vaccum has a hepa filter that is supposed to be self cleaning but continues to plug up. it is not easy to get to and takes forever to clean it out so the suction is strong again.


    do you have the SELF-CLEANING, rotating HEPA filter?

    I just fixed my HEPA filter not rotating!!

    It involves taking apart the vacuum HEPA area. All screws are the same size. There are a LOT of 'em. Really straightforward putting it back together too.

    ok, once you take the HEPA canister area off the vacuum, careful with the wires! Unplug them from the controller board. You open up the HEPA chamber by removing more screws until you see where the motor that turns the filter is mounted on the side. Remove motor from the green chamber. Note where the washer goes. Once the motor is off, you'll see that the center hub that drives the HEPA filter is rounded out. What I did was jam little bits of aluminum from a pop can into the space between the circle and the square to force the walls back to square. I started by folding a little piece of aluminum over and over so it was about three layers thick. Jammed that in. That wasn't quite enough thickness so I shoved another piece with it. If you can find something that is about 4 times the thickness of a pop can aluminum, that'd probably work too. Slight wedge shape on the tip would help. Any sort of tiny shim.

    To test your work, just put a couple of holder screws into the HEPA cannister housing, plug in the cover/switch, plug in the HEPA moter. Turn it on for a few seconds to make sure the filter turns. Then you can add more thickness to the hub or put things back together.
