I dont think its a problem with the filters if you have normal suction.
If the DC11 cylinder/ canister vac has an air turbine brush / turbo brush check that the drive belt inside it isn't clogged with dirt. If its a toothed belt ensure that it is properly snapped on as well as the other parts in that floor head tool. There may also be dirt clogged in the turbine wheel which is stopping the brush from moving quickly.

SOURCE: Dyson collecting debris/hair, ect on top of hepa filter?

Called Dyson today about the cyclone canister clogging in my DC17 Animal. Turns out it's a problem with the black rubber gasket in the bottom of the canister. This also causes the HEPA filter to get lots of dirt and debris on top of it. They are sending me a new Cyclone canister with the corrected gasket. This will prevent anything but small particles of dust from entering the top of the cyclone and the HEPA filter should no longer collect all that stuff. Hope so!

SOURCE: My dyson dc08 has a loss of suction. A flap valve ...

You have used your Dyson too long without thorough cleaning - Here's how.

Obtain a torx screwdriver, or a set of torx bits, you will need to select the correct size when you come to remove the screws. They are all the same, so you will need only one.

Take the radix catridge off the machine as if to empty the clear plastic sucking container. (From here on your hands get dirty).

Firmly pull out the inner conical funnel. Here it is removed. (Note I am showing photos of the cleaned device).

Next remove the three torx screws. You can see the recesses these are hiding in in the above picture they are the holes without nozzles. The screws are self tappers screwed into plastic, and are easy to undo.

Remove the lower part of the housing and its rubber sealing ring.
_183.jpg
Note the orientation for when you put it back together. The above photo shows the lower bell housing opened away from the top part as if opening a door. It's pretty hard to put them together incorrectly so don't worry too much.

You now need to remove two further screws which are recessed into the sides of the inside of the housing. Their positions are easy to find as they are the only recesses large enough, and match up with two curves on the outside of the housing. They are at the left and right in this picture.

Next you need to remove the handle at the top of the radix housing that you normally use to pick up the device.

_185.jpg
Remove the two screws deep in the tubular holes you can see at the right of this picture.

Then slightly lift the end of the handle at the end where you removed the screws.

Next use a screw driver to push the other end of the handle off the housing away from the end where you just removed the screws.

_186.jpg
This picture shows the handle pushed out (or ready to be re-attached)

Finally remove the screw revealed by removal of the handle.

You can now lift off the top housing revealing the wormy looking cyclone device This is where most of the **** builds up.. Lift this off and clean everything out thoroughly with water.

Make sure everything is clean and dry!!!!

Re-assemble in reverse order.

Now your Dysin is restored to original sucking power.

Over heating while cleaning


There can be 3 reasons

1. The main dust collection receptacle is full. Empty it

2. The filter in between the receptacle to the machine is clogged. Take it out and wash it. Ensure it is dry before fitting it again as this is the inlet and must not be wet.


3. Look for a clip on attachment from where the air exits. Open this and clean the sponge and filter. I usually take it out and wash it squeeze out the extra water before using again. Since it is the outlet, it doesn't matter if it is damp when refitting.

I would advise that you take a picture before pulling it out so that you place the rubber gasket, sponge and filter in the same sequence as before after cleaning them. Happy Cleaning!!!!

How do I clean filter on black&decker DustBuster pivot 18v


(The below worked with my 9.6v version - I assume the others in the pivot range will be similar).
If you open the lid (where the dust collects) you can twist the inner plastic filter about 30 degrees to unlock it. Then, with a bit of "fiddling" with the fold out part (press the unlock button and rotate the suction part as if you were going to use the unit) then, the plastic internal part and the whole suction bit will come off the motor part. Do this slowly as the inner filter will be full of dust and muck. You can then take the filter out, tap it clean in the bin and then wash and dry it with washing up liquid (gently) and allow to fully dry before putting it all back together again.

How to clean a washable electrolux filter


Hi There,
Ok so i am going to assume you are talking about an Electrolux filter that is basically a rectangle shape with a hard plastic outer and folded corrugated filter material in the middle. The link I put to Electrolux filter would be a good example. Basically I would caution you against washing it. I know the packaging says that it is washable but what I have found is that the pores of the filter material are too fine for water to pass through. What will happen is that the vacuums suction will wedge tiny bits of dirt and dust in the pores and water will not necessarily flush it out. What is far more likely to happen is that it will wash out a fair amount but leave a portion in the filter to set and therefore continue to block suction.
You are better to use an air compressor or simply tap the filter out on a piece of newspaper and change it every year or so.
Of course if your filter is more like a Electrolux UltraActive filter which is basically foam then you simply rinse it out like a kitchen sponge and make sure it is bone dry before putting back in the machine.

The littlew round screen goes in the hole where the hose attaches to the tank. The round foam filter goes up in the hole underneath the on/off valve for the foam. Here is a guide if you need any more help...

Dyson blowing top of cyclone air release valve.


It sounds like the same problem I was having. I had loss of suction through he hose then all of the air was coming out through the vent/valve on top of canister. If you are looking at your dyson from the back, look at the bottom. You will see a purple plastic tab on the bottom left. That allows you to remove the plastic u-shaped hose that goes from the hose to the bottom of the dyson. I just removed that and found it was completley blocked. I removed it and the dyson has no loss of suction orair through top valve/vent. I hope this helps. I never post but i'm just excited that I got my dyson working perfectly again.

HEPA Filter
Posted by jenski66 on Jul 02, 2008
My vacuum came with a sponge over the filter and the directions said I could wash the filter. Do the directions mean to wash the black sponge or the actual filter? Is the sponge part of the filter or is it trash?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Typically the top filter of which is the sponge is washable but the HEPA filter is not, it can be brushed off and vacuum off with another vacuum, but the best filtration is to replace the HEPA filter and to wash the sponge filter, if the sponge filter get to bad then replace the sponge filter as well. Or, you can check with your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or to contact the manufacturer’s website and or phone #. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

I have taken the brush heads off and pulled all the hair out of the small gap between the chrome shaft and the plastic gear housing. Then a small amount of 3-in-1 oil into that gap to lube the internals and just a little through the air intake on the side of the head to clean and lube the seals and it works like new. This lasts about 9 months under high use and the process takes roughly 10 minutes.
