I can't get it to close properly after emptying cannister

I don't know if my switch is broke or what. The vacuum is not connecting with the openings on the cannister. Please help.

When I tried to open the clear bin to empty it, the bottom did not drop open and now I can't push the cyclone down. What do I need to do to fix this?


I can't be specific without knowing your model but the crud and gunk that collects inside the dirt bin can restrict the door from opening and closing properly. If the door isnt closed properly the dirt bin may not fit back into the vacuum.

My Dyson Absolute does not restart...I emptied a full cannister...cleaned the filter etc...but pushing the power button nothing happens...What should I do next?...Thanks gil


I would make sure that there is no micro switch that is stuck, and also that the canister is seated properly.


Assuming it was working before and that it is still plugged in, that is all I can think of.

I can't get the bottom of the canister to open in order to empty the disrecarded material.


Remove the cannister from the vacuum. The bottom lid should release if you depress the red button at the top of the cannister, if this does not release the bottom lid, you will have to depress the red button while pulling the lid open. Either the release mechanism need repair or there is something jamming the bottom lid.
Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks.

How do I open the dirt cannister on a dyson animal (purple) so I can empty the dirt out?


This is fairly easy. Click on the button at the top of the hand above the cannister. It's a purple button and the handle faces the front and says Dyson on it. This separate the cannister from the body.

Next, hold the now full cannister above a trash can and click on the red button which was below the purple button (but hidden when it was attached).

Replace power switch - Electrolux Epic series 6500


well, i post an answer in the wrong field, and i can't find it, so i will type one more time.
slide two vinyl side pieces off, and remove top halves. remove two screws from the switch, and remove it from top halve. between switch and outside button is a plastic rocker, which is broken. you will find two broken pieces, one spring for the rocker piece, and one small plastic rod, which goes inside of the spring for support. i do not know if part is available, but you can for quick fix like me, turn the switch on by the hand, assemble unit, and plug in, and plug out from the wall. whay? i dont have electrolux store close by.

Belts keep breaking


Check the brush roll ends to see if they have melted or frozen. They should turn freely, part #361869-1. Make sure the belt isn't being pinched somewhere.
