Question about Dyson DC35 Handheld Vacuum
I washed the filter and have refitted it, but the light is staying off which the manual says means its not been fitted correctly. I have tried every which way and cannot see that there is any other way of putting the filter in than how I have done it. When I try to use the vacuum the power gets weaker intermittently about 4 times and then it just shuts itself off.
Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.
I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your DC35. This machine has a microswitch which prevents the machine being used accidentally without the filter in place. The video below shows the correct way to remove, wash and replace the filter, and you should find that replacing it this way should solve the problem.
If this doesn't improve the situation, please get in touch with us directly so we can provide further assistance. You can reach our customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US). Please have your machine to hand so we can run through some quick troubleshooting steps to help resolve the issue.

I had the same issue. Got on the phone with Dyson. THe vacuum has a safety feature where if the motor gets too hot it cuts off. You have to leave it for 45 minutes or so and then it will work again. There is an underlying issue though. My problem was the black gasket thats in the debris bin shifted, probably from when emptying i pushed it on something. The black gasket should actually hang off the bottom like a skirt and the 2 groves should fit in on the groves of the gray mechanism. This seal is what provides 100% suction. Because of this..my vaccumm has been accumulating pet hair by the belt which i hear alot of people talking about and especially in the filter area. This is because I broke the seal by not having the gasket in place properly and it wasnt sucking 100%. They are sending me a complete new cyclone unit which has the debris catcher as well as she said its probably so caked up with debris it will never work again 100%. no questions asked they are sending it to me free of charge.
So if you remove the clear cyclinder debris catch thing all you will have is the purple cyclone on top and on the bottom is the black rubber gasket....

We wouldn't recommend using your Dyson for picking up large amounts of very fine powder, because it's not designed or tested for this purpose. I note you've already washed the filters, but you might want to view the video demonstration embedded below to check you've done so correctly.
