Question about Dyson DC35 Handheld Vacuum

1 Answer

Can't put filter back in DC35

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.

Best wishes,

Jack

SOURCE: Power shuts off on my dyson dc17 animal

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....

      Hi there,

      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.

      If you've done this and you're still having difficulties, please get in touch with us directly so we can resolve this for you. You can call us free on 08002980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US). One of our experts will be happy to provide further assistance.

        My Dyson DC35 stalls. I've thoughly clean it, so it's not a clog problem


        1st make sure battery is fully charged.
        Next, wash the filter, just follow the instructions in the manual.
        If the filter is clogged the motor will try to run but then cut out to protect the motor from damage.

        My DC35 keeps cutting out ie every 10secs. The filter has been washed and the machine is clear of any obstructions. The battery is fully charged - Graham


        Hi Graham, it's Jack at Dyson.

        If your DC35 seems to be cutting out frequently in use, and you're confident that there are no blockages and the filter is clean, it would be worth contacting us directly for some further advice.

        When you have your machine fully charged and easily to hand, our experts will take you through some diagnostic checks to determine which part may be at fault. If your DC35 is within our 2-year cordless guarantee period, and has been used and maintained as described in the user guide, we should be able to replace the affected part for you.

        You can reach us by calling the Dyson customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

        Put wet filter in dyson DC35 will not run will it dry out


        Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

        The filters in our handheld machines should be washed at least once a month using cold water without detergent. However, they should always be allowed to try completely before they're replaced, which may take at least 12 hours. It can help to place the filter somewhere warm - for example, by a radiator, or in an airing cupboard.

        Unfortunately, if you have used your machine with a wet filter in place, this is likely to have caused damage to the motor. Using your machine with a wet filter will also have voided the machine's 2-year guarantee.

        I would encourage you to get in touch with us directly so we can confirm which replacement parts you may need to get the machine running again. You can reach our customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).
