My dyson dc24 has started spraying dust from the ball.

Dyson say I must have been hoovering small dust and that voids the warranty.

SOURCE: The brush on my dyson ball DC24 will not turn on-

That noise you're hearing is the clutch, which is expensive to replace and difficult to change.

If you want, you can still use the vacuum for bare floors but that noise will always be there. Using it for anything else won't work.

I have a dyson dc19 hoover and the canister release button is stuck

The release button is probably restricted with dirt and dust. If you can't get it cleaned out you may have to force it.

The button for the brush roller / hard floor setting is difficult to operate. It is unresponsive and seems to be sticking.

not 100% sure but could dust have built up around button? General remedy for stiff items is to spray with a silicon spray such as wd40. Before use place newspaper or other absorbant substance under area to be sprayed.

Dyson DC07 leaves large dust marks on floor while upright

Hi Tracy, it's Jack at Dyson.

If dust is coming back out of your DC07's cleaner head, this suggests that the machine may have a blockage. It's also worth checking that the internal hose isn't damaged, and removing any threads or hair from around the brush bar.

The easiest way to check for and clear any blockages is to follow the steps shown in our online support guide:

If you haven't washed both parts of the pre-filter recently, it's also a good idea to do this. In normal use this should be done at least once every 3-6 months using cold water without detergent. Make sure both parts of the filter are completely dry before replacing them - this may take at least 12 hours.

This should resolve things, but if you have any further issues after giving these steps a try, please give us a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU) so our experts can provide further assistance.

How do I repair a DC29 motor

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

If you're having difficulty with your DC29 I would encourage you to contact us directly to discuss this. If a repair is needed we can confirm if this is covered under your Dyson warranty - outside the warranty period, we can also look into alternative options. Please be aware that attempting to repair the motor yourself could void any remaining warranty cover.

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

We'll look forward to speaking with you.

How do I dissasemble Dyson DC41 cyclone tubes?

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

We would strongly advise against attempting to dismantle DC41's cyclone pack. This could cause damage, and can void your machine's free Dyson warranty. The cyclone pack is engineered to work effectively without maintenance, although you can remove the clear bin to remove any debris from the mesh shroud if needed.

Please note it's normal for harmless static generated in use to cause fine dust particles to cling to the cyclone pack, but this shouldn't affect performance. You can dislodge most loose particles by gently tapping the cyclone pack when you empty your machine after use.

DC41 has two washable filters, engineered to last the lifetime of the vacuum in normal use. The filters should be washed with cold water without detergent at least once a month, as shown in the video below. Allow at least 24 hours for both filters to dry completely before replacing them.

If you're concerned about any aspect of your vacuum I would encourage you to contact us directly so we can provide further assistance. If a repair or replacement part is needed, we can confirm if this is covered under warranty. You can reach us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Lost suction

Hi Terry, it's Jack at Dyson.

It's very unusual for the changeover valve hose to have become disconnected, as this isn't an easily accessible part. As you recline the machine into the vacuuming position, the hose should move freely forward, to divert suction from the wand and hose to the cleaner head. The changeover valve hose is a push-fit part at both ends. Please don't attempt to dismantle the changeover valve assembly to re-fit it, as this is likely to void any warranty on your machine.

I would strongly encourage you to contact us directly for further guidance on refitting the hose correctly, as we should be able to help you resolve the situation without voiding your machine's 5-year warranty.

If you can email your contact details and the serial number of your machine to, one of our experts will be in touch as soon as possible to provide further assistance.

Best wishes,

My Dyson DC25 suddenly had a small blue spark near the bristle section and now the bristles won't work. Hoover works but bristles won't turn. Any suggestions how I can fix it? Thanks

Hi Michelle,

I would suggest contacting Dyson right away and see if they will cover it under their warranty.

Also, I found their support site helpful as well. You will need the first 3-digits of your serial number (usually found behind the removable canister).

I hope that helps!

I have a dyson hoover. up to last week it worked fine. now it will not hoover up bits!!! i have to keep taking the long attahcment off and using that instead which is not ideal!! hubby has checked...

Check the inspection air tubes on the Dyson - you don't say what model this is - and each model does have air inspection tubes but can be different to each model - which can usually clog up with dirt/debris thus making the machine difficult to pick up. Certainly sounds like there is some kind of clog between the main dust channel from the sole plate/floor head where the roller brush is.

Hoover all terrain steamVac brushes wont move. Does this model have a belt and where

The brushes are driven by air flow (suction). the most likely problem is with the turbine. This part can be replaced or repaired. If under warranty, take it tin for service, otherwise you will void any warranty.
