After many years I have found , in excellent condition, my late husband's torch. Do I just attach the charger to the torch and plug into the mains, and wait ?


after all that time it is highly unlikely that the batteries will take a charge. Try it but I am sure you are going to need to replace the battery

It is not picking up dirt


Was it picking up dirt before?
If so then perhaps the suction hose has a buildup of dirt/fluff somewhere along it. If a large piece of material went up the hose it often sticks and small bits gather around it to cause a complete blockage. Can you take the hose off and check? Or shine a torch down?

It doesn't have any suction power. What do I look at first?


first you will need to look at the filters the filter on the right hand side of the unit is washable and can be cleaned the filter under the bin should be replaced every 6 months, if this does not improve then remove the bin assy from the unit and open the flap at the bottom and with a torch look down the middle of the cyclone you may find a blockage,also under the the cleaner head itself take a look at the clear hose as this may have a split of may even have fallen off hope this helps

My dyson dc07 seems to take awhile to build proper suction... is this normal?


no it should pick up as soon as you turn it on, make sure the brush is turning if it is then turn the unit off, make sure the the washable filter is clean and the the bin filter is also clean, if this does not work then there one more thing if you can try, remove the bin from the unit release the bin flap and with a torch look down the end of the cyclone you might find a large blockage this vry common in the dc07 hope this helps

try some fine sandpaper or one could heat up
the wand or hose with a heatgun or torch
to flex it and then try plugging it in.

Having problems removing separator on Rainbow Vacuum....


Not a good sign. If your Rainbow is SE or newer - separator should not spin freely.

Some may recommend torch but I am afraid that you may end up melting some plastic parts so be careful. I'd say put a wrench on the nut, hold the separator and press it towards the motor (thus holding the armature as much as it is still possible) and then hit the wrench that is on the nut with another one - create momentum.

If this does not work - you can use pliers to destroy the separator completely so you would gain access to another nut that is under the separator so you can hold the armature with another wrench.

I can not guarantee 100% that you will succeed as sometimes those nuts are so rusted that you have to have the armature held in a vise.We usually disassemble the motor so we can hold the armature by hand or in a vise but if you do not want to go that far into the motor - use described above method - maybe it will work.

Series e


First purchase a new aerator nut and aerator. Now spray where the nut meets the separator liberally with liquid wrench , let soak for an hr or 2 and then take a tooth brush to it at the same place. Don't try loosening it with a screw driver , use a deep well socket. Sorry I don't remember what size. if this doesn't work you can try a torch. To prevent this in the future thoroughly dry the tank after washing it and store with the aerator and nut OFF .

I have a Harmony vacuum that's a couple years old. I recently sucked a fair amount of dog hair into it and was unaware something was amiss since the things so quiet. It just shut down and wouldn't come...


Hi There,
Nope, I don't think you torched the motor. I believe this model has a thermal cut-out on the motor that prevents this. I am pretty sure that the vacuum is blocked somewhere, you see, the air that is sucked in is the same air that cools the motor. When the vacuum is blocked, the cooling stops, motor overheats and the thermal trip jumps in. Ten mins later, the trip kicks out (as the motor cools) and away you go, but until the blockage is cleared it will keep doing this. The blockage could be anywhere right up to the turbine on the motor itself so, unplug it, get the screwdriver out and get going. Start with all external hoses\channels before tackling internals using a long piece of dowel or similar poking thingy.
One final note, you may well find that the pet hair managed to block the system by getting stuck on some other object that was already there (usually something silly like a toothpick) pet hair doesn't usually block vacuums on its own. Make sure you clear everything out or the problem will re-occur.
Hope this helps.

Kind Regards......Dave
