How to remove electrolux guardian hepa filter


Open gadget compartment, remove all gadgets or attachments and the hepa filter will be below the vented frame...look next to the end with the hose and you'll see two spring clips (part of the vented frame) and squeeze them to allow the vented frame to release and move upward. This will expose the filter. Reinstall in reverse.

Where is the filter


Dyson put filters in three locations. 1) Remove the canister, there should be a release clip in the front above the handle, this allows the top to tip backwards. 2) On the left side, at the main unit is a round cover with thumb release, this pulls straight out. These are cleanable filters, RINSE ONLY no soap!!
3) Under the canister is a filter, the cover has 3 clips which need to be pried gently to open the cover. This is a hepa filter and cannot be cleaned, it must be replaced.

Remove hepa filter


Turn the Dyson on its back as if you were servicing the beater brush and on the RH side you'll see the filter housing for the HEPA and a T-15 Torx screw. Remove this screw and then remove the cover for the HEPA filter.

Replacing the hepa filter


The cover for the HEPA filter is located immediately beneath the clear bin, and is exposed when you remove the bin. Removing the filter cover without breaking something can be a bit of a challenge, but if you look carefully you will see how it fits on, and then, with care, you can lever it off. Then the filter just lifts out. Don't worry if you do break the cover - the cost of a new one is nothing compared with the filter itself. You will need to buy a new adhesive seal too, as the old one will be stuck to the old filter.

My HEPA filter get's blown off of the vacuum when I vacuum. I just got all new filters and a new brush roll. Could something be clogging in the inside?


There should be a cover that closes over the HEPA filter. If the cover is missing, or is there, but does not snap closed, then either snap it closed, or replace the cover.
If something was clogged inside, then the HEPA filter would be less prone to being blown off. But, it sounds like the filter or filter cover is not being correctly installed. The manual is not clear on whether the cover snaps closed.

Hepa filter on dyson dc01


Not sure about you model, but some of the dyson's have the hepa filter under the dirt container. Remove the container, there is a cover that comes off and the filter is under that cover.
