Unfortunately you need a new Bin Assembly. you have inadvertently thrown your Bin Inner away when you have emptied your machine. You can get these from either www.espares.co.uk or www.dyson.co.uk. There is only a couple pounds difference between the two suppliers. i've just paid £20 plus £3 delivery.

SOURCE: Way too much suction

Did you call Dyson?  Just call their customer service and see if there have been other complaints like yours.  I just got the same model and will be looking out for this.

Obstruction in the hose?
Your vac has developed a hairball possibly.... when a piece of flexible media ie.... cardboard, plastic etc... gets lodged in the hose, and begins collecting hair & dust to the point it no longer has enough draft to pull debris from the floor.

SOURCE: My DC05 Dyson suction has

My Dyson had exactly the same problem. I found the problem was caused by a blockage in the hose. Take the hose out where it joins the cleaner (it will come out if you pull it downwards gently) and take the hose out of the handle by squeezing the yellow buttons on either side. I pushed a rubber alkathene pipe down and found a piece of plastic was blocking it even though at first I was sure it wasn't blocked.

SOURCE: How many filters does Dyson DC05 has?

The DC05 has two filters.  In terms of air-flow through the machine, one sits between the bin and the vacuum motor, the other is after the motor and is effectively the exhaust filter. The one that's missing on your machine is the first filter - it consists of a blue foam disc contained within a yellow surround (the base of the surround has additional filter material built in to it). Both components are washable (but be sure everything is absolutely dry before re-installing after washing).  The filter you can see under the bin is the second (HEPA) filter. This one is usually quite long-lived but, if your machine has been used without the first filter in place, the HEPA filter almost certainly needs replacing too.  The machine should never be used without the first filter in place, as that will risk serious damage to the motor and will certainly shorten its life.  Incidentally, user manuals can be downloaded from dyson.com.

Filter keeps clogging up ie what gets picked up goes into the filter not cylinder?


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm confident I know what the issue is here - it sounds like you may have accidentally discarded the bin inner when emptying your machine. Without this in place, dust and debris will pass through the system and onto the pre-filter, rather than being separated from the airflow and captured in the clear bin.

The bin inner is the coloured cylindrical plastic section with a black rubber seal, which usually sits inside the clear bin as shown here:

filter-keeps-clogging-up-ie-gets-picked-v44rt5buvdl41mnfadiqwxd2-4-0.jpg
If you've recently emptied your DC05 it's worth checking to make sure the bin inner hasn't fallen out. If you can retrieve it, it should simply push firmly back into place inside the clear bin.

It's also a good idea to wash both parts of your machine's washable pre-filter, as it may still contain dust even if it looks clean on the outside. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 12 hours for both parts of the filter to dry completely before replacing it in the machine:


I hope this helps. If you need any further guidance you're welcome to give the Dyson UK Helpline a call 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.

I had the same problem. It looks like the seal on the lid on the bottom of the cylinder has fallen out when it was emptied. There is no longer a proper vacuum being created so you don't get the cyclone effect and the dirt doesn't collect where its supposed to. it just clogs up the filter. I put sellotape to seal the lid and it works fine.

My Eureka 5892 BVZ-1 vaccum has very little suction. I checked hoes and emptied cup, and made sure filter is not dusty.


There are probably three filters, one on the back of the dust collection bin, one under the dust collection bin, and one where the air exits the vacuum, check all three.

It's lost suction even though we've cleaned the filters. Is there anything else we can clean?


Yes. Remove the hose, disconnect all the different sections and visually check for blockages. Make sure you check the cleaning head as well. If nothing is visible reassemble by adding ONE SECTION AT A TIME and check the suction by switching the power on and seeing if the hose will stay stuck to your hand when you turn it upside down. If you find that the suction dies after re-attaching a particular section, then there is a blockage in that section. Make sure you re-connect all sections of hose fully and correctly.

Try this and report back.

Hi there VacuumGuru from Vacuumspot.com.au here. You will find there are 2 reasons will not spin in a dyson DC05. 1 is that it is missing one of the 2 parts in the dust container, there should be an upside down funnel in there and a rubber boot on it. Without those dust just goes either to the bottom of the bin or to the filter. The 2nd cause is that even though the filters have been cleaned they are simply too old. When you hold the washable filter (the one with the plastic outer and the foam insert) up to the light and take out the foam bit you should be able to see light through the filter. If not you are probably only running on maybe 80% suction which still works but isn't as good as it could be.
The filters are available here if you need them.
Hope this helps! :)

Hi its Darran at Dyson.

From your description of the problem, it sounds as though the bin inner is missing. To confirm this, if you remove the cyclone and bin from the machine, then separate the 2 pieces as if you were going to empty it, when you look at the bin assembly, there should be a circular coloured piece of plastic in the base of the bin. This plastci piece should have a large black/grey rubber seal around the top. If this part is missing, the dust and debris will not collect in the bin, instead it will collect on the filter.

If you find that this is the problem, you can purchase a replacement bin assembly (including the bin inner) from our website at www.dyson.com.

If this is not the problem and the machine is correctly assembled with no blockages and a clean pre filter, please contact our Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US) for further assistance.

Kind regards
Darran

Hepa filter stopped on Hoover Windtunnel 2 Model #U8361-900


This has a simple solution IF you have a air compressor with a high pressure nozzle. Outside the house, first remove the Dust bin completely and lay the unit down with the dust bin area up. now start blowing the nozzle at the hepa filter, Alot of dust will come out. Now start to rotate the filter while blowing the dust out. The filter will move one way easier, When there is no more dust reinstall the dustbin and check the suction and the rotation of the filter.

Dyson DC05 problem with filters.


First, and for sure, the problem is in the collection unit (CU), not the filter.  Is it possible that something is missing from the CU?  When you remove the CU to empty it, and you lift off the top, a conical yellow part remains attached to the inside of the lid; another yellow part remains in the bottom of the CU, with a big black rubber seal on top. 
I think the problem you describe will occur if that black rubber seal is missing, displaced or damaged (perhaps it dropped out with the dirt and you didn't notice).  A healthy seal between those two yellow parts inside the CU is essential. 
Please rate my response if this helps.  If it doesn't help, also let me know and I'll think again.

No suction


Check the main filter cone - if it has a rip in it, then there won't be any suction in it, also clean it gently with a paint brush to get all of the dust out and check the back of the upright after the bin is taken out as sometimes there is dirt clogged at the back. Check the front of the sole plate i.e. where the roller brush is and check the dust channel behind this as it can get clogged. Due to the nature of this vacuum with the hose being located at the front of the floor head dirt can be trapped but most of all its the paper pleated cone filter that needs a good brushing. Hope that helps.
