Question about Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

Canister problem When I lift the canister off to empty it, the flap at the bottom swings open, depositing 3 dog's worth of hair on my foot! The flap won't stay closed - even after I cleaned off the seal. HELP ME! Please.

Check that the plastic piece isn't broken. I had to replace my canister once because the little detent where the clip holds the base down was bent out of shape. It's too fragile to bend...just replace it.

If it won't latch after cleaning the latch and making sure that everything is seated well, get in touch with Dyson, they're great about making things right with their vacuums.

I cleaned the filter and emptied out the canister from the bottom and now the dirt comes out on my filter and not in the canister?


The first place the "dirty" air enters is the top chamber of the canister where it traps the bigger stuff.

The canister has two clean-out doors so make sure you open them both (top and bottom) or you could have problems.

Nice thing about the Shark as it has a number of clean-out points starting at the base of the hose where it enters the bottom of the vac. to the beater brush (on the bottom of just behind the brush assembly). Good luck!

My dc05 gathers dust and pet hair in the filter at the top of the cylinder and does not pass into the cylinder. I have replaced the filters and the sponge.


you have lost the rubber insert at the bottom of the canister. The bottom of the center cone normally fits into this and blocks the bottom of the cone. It would have fallen out when you emptied it.

I have lost suction.....what do I do? -with the vacuum and the hose!


Its okay to unscrew where the hose is connect to the area close to the bottom, where the hose bends. That is where there is usually a ball of hair, dust, and whatever. Pull the hair ball out and also clean the roller.

On the DC07, the entire cyclone assembly must be removed to empty the dust, debris, etc. collected when vacuuming. On the top of the cyclone is a "trigger" that you lift with your finger to release the...


Beofre you go to the extent of buying a replacement canister, you can remove the top and using a straightened coat hanger type thing open that bottom lid. Then maybe you can clean the rim and possibly add some silicone spry to loosen things up. Here's how to get inside In this order: 1) Remove the canister 2) remove the three star screws at the top of the canister. It'll take a bit of pressure to pull the top up, there's a rubber seal. When you pull it up there will be a rod running down into the canister, leave it be, just pull up the top high enough to clear out any debris. 3) Use a straightened coat hanger and with a flashlight to guide you, reach down with it and push it into that hole down at the bottom center of the canister. That will pop the lid open. Clean the canister & lid rims, maybe add some silicone. At this point you might as well clean the canister too. OPTIONAL-> ***leave the bottom lid open*** and follow the rest of these steps 4) Put the top back on aligning the screws, when you lower it make sure the bottom of the rod engages with the hole at the bottom center of the canister, this is why you left the bottom lid open. Put the three star screws back in. 4) Turn the canister upside down, lid open, and keeping in mind this is thin plastic, gently tug upwards on the four fins that surround the bottom rubber seal. This part is held in by friction, so work your way around the four fins gently pulling until you work the ring they're connected to free. This will give you access to the inside of the canister. 5) remove the round perforated section by tugging upwards on it, set it aside with the fin part. 6) Take the canister to a laundry tub or large sink and holding it bottom up fill it with hot/warm water. Grasping the center section shake it vigorously and turn it upside down while shaking and a bunch of sh*t will come out. Repeat several times. 7) Dry thoroughly, you might use a hairdryer held to the center tube, but only if you can switch off the heat and use air only. Make sure its 200% dry, water will kill your machine 8) clean and replace the round perforated section 9) replace the fin section, I'd suggest pulling the round rubber part off of the fin part and setting it in place on the canister first, then follow with the plastic fin part. If you don't do it this way the rubber won't seat properly and the bottom lid won't close. 10) Close the lid, replace the canister, and staaaaaart suckin like it's brand new.

I have a Lift Off Pet Bagless upright and ever since I **** up a hair tie it hasn't been **** up the dog hair from my carpet. I have gotten the hair tie out of the vacuum but it is still not **** up.


One of the reasons it might not be picking up is because you have a worn belt. The other reason could be that the suction channel is clogged. Did you remove the hair tie you ****up? If you need a replacement belt you can get it here: Bissell Lift-Off Pet Replacement Belt

Hi, im hoovering my mothers house whilst she is away, using a vitesse pet lover, but now the cylinder is full and i can work out how to open it so i can empty it. thanks


Lift the catch where the canister lid joins the handle, then pull the whole assembly away from the handle.  Take the assembly to wherever you want to empty it, then press the button at the bottom front of the canister.  The bottom swings down and the muck falls out.  In the ideal world, you will then take the lid off by twisting it slightly anti-clockwise (you'll see the "lock" and "open" markings on the canister rim), remove the pleated filter (again by twisting anti-clockwise), give it a good shake and then brush between the pleats.  Reverse this process to put it back together, and away you go again!
I hope this helps. Any more questions, just ask. Please remember to rate my response, thank you.

No suction on the bissell lift-off revolution


I had the same problem. In the water resevoir, there is a red flap that allows the dirty water to flow back into the water tank. Lift that flap up and there is a small red screen. Pop that screen out with a butter knife and rinse it out. I have dogs in my house and that screen was blocked by dog hair. I cleaned the screen, popped it back in and it works like a new machine. You would think Bissell would address this roblem on their web site but they don't.

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!

I have the same problem with my Dyson dc17...there is dog x2 hair collecting in the 'cylinders' just underneath the purple cap on top of the cyclone/canister. And i can see twisted 'braids' of hair coming out of each pea-size hole. I called Dyson's Support number and after they asked a few questions about the round filter (tell them you clean it every month or so), the representative told me that you should not see anything collecting on top of your filter located at the base of the canister (mine was covered with dog hair, etc.). They told me that nothing larger than minute dust particles should be there...which eventually travel into the purple cap. They said the cyclone canister has since been redesigned to correct the faulty rubber seals, etc., and they are going to send me a whole new cyclone/canister within a week or so. so call Dyson directly before you try to get inside "the purple chamber"...I know I could not figure it out!
