Dyson DC07 bin falls open

After I vacuum I go to dump the dirt and the bin fall open before I push the release. So if I forget I get a floor full of dirt. Can I replace the hook on the inside to hold it together? Could it be the suction around the opening? Anyone else have this problem?

SOURCE: bottom of dirt container doesn't stay closed

The catch/latch that is on the bottom of the bin button release has likely broken.  
If you take out the canister (as when you are dumping the bin), and flip it upside down and then squeeze the bin release button, you will see that it moves a rod inside the cyclone assembly.  At the end of this rod is a plastic (plastic.. redundant, as the entire Dyson is practically plastic) latch that catches onto the bin's lid and locks it in place.  A broken latch means it doesn't lock the lid in.
What you need is a replacement latch.  Note that the "Bin Release Button + Rod assembly" that are sometimes sold on ebay do *not* contain the latch at the end of the rod.  Also the bottom bin assembly does not contain the required parts.
The cyclone assembly should have the full bin release rod + latch, so if you can't find the latch, then a new cyclone assembly would work also (but will cost more, obviously).

SOURCE: no suction - Dyson vacuum

Hi If the Dyson is throwing out dirt at the back, it could be three possibilities:
1) The main floor head suction channel is blocked. Check the sole plate where the beater bar is, or if you have a cylinder/pull along model check the floor heads and main extension pipes.
2) Check all the inspection tubes especially the bottom part where the main handle hose is. Also check the filters are clean as well as the Cyclone shroud honeycombs are completely unclogged. Use of the upholstery brush is ideal for dust removal on the cyclones.
3) Check the main inspection areas on the Dyson as sometimes a back log of clogged dirt can get stuck. Also check the dust channel points when then bin is taken out.
Hope all this helps!

SOURCE: dyson dc07 yellow/blue no suction at base

Sounds like you've **** up something which is obstructing the suction from the brush bar. There's a little section of curved grey pipe near the base which carries the dirt from the head up the vertical pipe at the back. This section can be removed, check there is nothing jammed in there, paper etc.

SOURCE: On the DC07, the entire cyclone assembly must be

Beofre you go to the extent of buying a replacement canister, you can remove the top and using a straightened coat hanger type thing open that bottom lid. Then maybe you can clean the rim and possibly add some silicone spry to loosen things up. Here's how to get inside In this order: 1) Remove the canister 2) remove the three star screws at the top of the canister. It'll take a bit of pressure to pull the top up, there's a rubber seal. When you pull it up there will be a rod running down into the canister, leave it be, just pull up the top high enough to clear out any debris. 3) Use a straightened coat hanger and with a flashlight to guide you, reach down with it and push it into that hole down at the bottom center of the canister. That will pop the lid open. Clean the canister & lid rims, maybe add some silicone. At this point you might as well clean the canister too. OPTIONAL-> ***leave the bottom lid open*** and follow the rest of these steps 4) Put the top back on aligning the screws, when you lower it make sure the bottom of the rod engages with the hole at the bottom center of the canister, this is why you left the bottom lid open. Put the three star screws back in. 4) Turn the canister upside down, lid open, and keeping in mind this is thin plastic, gently tug upwards on the four fins that surround the bottom rubber seal. This part is held in by friction, so work your way around the four fins gently pulling until you work the ring they're connected to free. This will give you access to the inside of the canister. 5) remove the round perforated section by tugging upwards on it, set it aside with the fin part. 6) Take the canister to a laundry tub or large sink and holding it bottom up fill it with hot/warm water. Grasping the center section shake it vigorously and turn it upside down while shaking and a bunch of sh*t will come out. Repeat several times. 7) Dry thoroughly, you might use a hairdryer held to the center tube, but only if you can switch off the heat and use air only. Make sure its 200% dry, water will kill your machine 8) clean and replace the round perforated section 9) replace the fin section, I'd suggest pulling the round rubber part off of the fin part and setting it in place on the canister first, then follow with the plastic fin part. If you don't do it this way the rubber won't seat properly and the bottom lid won't close. 10) Close the lid, replace the canister, and staaaaaart suckin like it's brand new.

Dyson dc07 clear dust bin will not close after emptying. Any time the bin is removed, the dirt falls out.


There is a lever that has a hook on the end that holds the door in the bottom of the dirt cup closed. If the little plastic hook gets broken the trap door will not stay closed by itself. The easiest way to fix this is to purchase a new dust bin. I have a bunch of them in my vacuum graveyard. You may call my store at 260 244-4696.

Cant get the bottom lid of dyson dc7 dirt bin to open


Hi there,

I am sorry to hear you are having difficulty opening your clear bin. The mechanism that releases the bin base is actually part of your cyclone assembly. When you pull the trigger, a small clip at the bottom of your cyclone releases the bin base. If this clip is missing or broken, part replacement may be needed to resolve the issue.

You can call us directly to order the the cyclone assembly at 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1-866-693-9766 (US). The part is also available on our website.

Best wishes,

Jessica

In case you don't have yours to hand, here's an online copy:

How ldo I open the Dyson DC07 bin to clean the mess out


Empty the bin in the usual way. Leaving the bottom door open, raise the small catch on the front of the bin, towards the top. Pull the front of the bin down when this catch is held open and the clear bin will disengage from the top lug at the back. The whole clear outer bin them can be removed dowards to enable the cyclonic air wholes to be totally cleaned.
This is for the DC07 all floors but I asume all DC07s to be the same.

HOW DO I EMPY


Remove the canister/dirt bin by pressing the button above the handle where it says Dyson. Next push the red or gray (depends on your model) trigger down whilst holding the canister over a trashcan. The bin door will open and release the dirt.

Can't figure out how to open the canaster to take the dirt out


Above the clear bin (canister) is the cyclone, and on top of that there's a handle. The whole bin-plus-cyclone assembly is released from the rest of the machine by grasping the handle and releasing the button that is on top of the handle where your thumb naturally falls. The trigger on the underside of the same handle releases the base of the bin (on a hinge) so the waste falls out.
You need to be careful not to squeeze that trigger until the bin is wherever you want to get rid of the waste, or else you'll end up with it all back on the floor!
You can empty the waste directly into a trash can, or enclose the bin in a plastic waste bag before releasing the waste.  After, make sure the base is properly re-secured before re-fitting the bin to the machine.  You can wipe the outside of the bin with a damp cloth.  If you wipe the inside (not necessary, but sometimes nice) make sure it is completely dry before closing the base.
I hope this helps.  I value your feedback, so please remember to rate this response.
Good luck!
