You can put the hose over the exhaust of the central vacuum canister to try and blow it out, or you will need to use a long plumbers snake.

There is no secret to getting items out that are stuck in central vacuum hoses. If you can get something long like a garden hose to insert into the central vacuum hose and push it out or put something heavy down the hose like a screw driver and shake the hose to see if you can knock it loose.

Good luck! and for all of your central vacuum needs visit:

I'm not an expert, but I have an idea for a solution that might work. It would seem to me that a beard trimmer would have blades on it; perhaps digging into the inside of the hose and thus preventing the other methods listed above to be productive. If nothing else works, you could use a razor knife to cut out the portion of the hose that has the beard trimmer stuck in it. Then, using fabric athletic tape, tape the hose back together. Then to make it airtight, do a layer of duct tape on top of the other tape. I've never tried this, but I think it would work well! http://www.premierclean.com.au/

My vacuum cleaner is dumping what it sucks up mostly on to the filter, I expected to find a blockage but not so far ? Can you advise ?.


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm confident I can resolve this issue - it sounds as if your machine may be missing the bin inner. The bin inner is the lower yellow section shown attached to the base of the clear bin in the image below:

vacuum-cleaner-dumping-sucks-up-mostly-h3e1t4xtsi4q0fs4cjltnw0b-1-0.jpg
It's possible you may have accidentally thrown this away when emptying the machine recently. To resolve the issue, you would just need to retrieve and refit the bin inner.

If you're unable to locate it, you can order a replacement by calling our freephone UK Helpline on 0800 298 0298. We're available from 8am-8pm from Monday to Friday, and 8am-6pm on weekends. Calls are free from UK landlines.

Why does it not fit?


Hi Clint, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC24 is not compatible with the original Mini turbine head as this tool is engineered to work with the performance characteristics of our full size upright and canister vacuums.

However, we do make a Mini turbine head which is compatible with DC24 - for help ordering this, I would encourage you to contact us directly by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), or 1-877-397-6622 (CA). Once we've taken the serial number of your machine we'll be able to confirm the correct Mini turbine head for your vacuum.

We'll look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,

Jack

1. There is probably a hook type affair on the back of the trimmer that you are supposed to route the extension through to keep the plug from falling out.
2. I would never do what I am going to tell you for safety reasons. It is possible to get a piece of cord, a tie wrap or a hose clamp, adjust it to fit over the trigger and around the handle so that when you pull the trigger, you slip this tight fitting device over it and it keeps it held in tightly enough so you don't have to keep your hand on it. Be advised that this is dangerous in that if you drop the trimmer or hit the electric cord, the trimmer will continue to run uncontrollably until you can get to the power, slip the device off of the trigger or the trimmer cuts the electric cord.
It can be done, but as you can see, it can be very dangerous. These things can amputate fingers.

Cut through the cord on the hedge trimmer how do i fix it


You need to replace the entire cord. It is not safe to try and repair the cord.I would call the dealer where you purchased the trimmer and see if they have the part or can aleast tell you where to get it.

Check all the wiring connections to make sure they're tight.
1/2. Wiring to power nozzle motor or reset switch is loose.
1. Cord from power nozzle to upper wand. If the plastic portion of the wand is cracked near the cord connection, or the connections are blackened, they need replaced.
2. Wiring connection from hose handle to upper wand. Check for cracks and discoloration as in 1 above. Replace if necessary.
3. Hose connection to vacuum. Not likely, but possible.
4. There could very well be a break in the hose wiring.
You may need to take your vacuum, with hose and power nozzle, to an authorized Aerus Electrux service shop. They can try a new hoze to see if that's the problem. If there is a break in the wiring, the hose is probably worn in other areas as well, and should be replaced.

Can't clean out a part; need help


The nozzle will seal very tight along the sides, pry up with somethin like a flat blade screwdriver to pry it loose. When you re-install it, make sure the 2 tabes at the top edge of the window snap into the slots first before putting it all of the way down. If you don't then the bucket will sit up slightly and won't suck up the water.
