Re: opening the dust holder

If you tilt the dust cover downwards a little once you've pressed the button and then squeeze the sides of the of the dust cover slightly it will pop off the bottom clip

Dirt cup release button is stuck and not operating even after pressing very hard. i am worried it will brake. Please guide.

Hello there! The dirt cup bottom door should swing open quite easily when the release button is pressed. If you are concerned that you may break the dirt cup we recommend you take your vacuum to a Hoover authorized service center for assistance. The UH70015 comes with a 60 month limited warranty. Follow the link below to locate the nearest service center to you. Service Center Locator

Hope this helps!

Dyson upright cylinder stuck wont release to empty unit

I have had this happen to me (DC14 Animal). This was my experience:

If you have recently had the motor filter (the "permanent" one under the dust container, right on top of the motor) out and have replaced it, it is important to make sure that the filter cover is down properly, otherwise the canister will not release.

I got the dust container off by pushing it downwards, quite hard before pressing the release button. You really will have to push straight down on it quite hard. Then investigate why the dust container is so high that it will not release.

How do I open Dyson DC7 to clean filter

The only filter you can clean is in the compartment beside the dust bin, push in on the release catch to pull out the filter holder. This filter should be replaced occasionally. There is an exhaust filter under the cover the dust bin sits on. This filter should also be replaced occasionally.

When I put a k-cup in and it brews the coffee, it leaves coffe grounds all over the top of the k-cup and in the holder area and I get some in my coffee, it looks like the top needle is making too big of...

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.
I would follow the cleaning list below, I an addition you may have a bad batch of k-cups
plus just run some hot water, with out a kcup in the holder.

  1. Remove the K-Cup assembly
    To remove the assembly from the brewer, open the cover by lifting the handle. Grasp the top of the K-Cup Holder with one hand while pushing up on the bottom of the assembly from underneath with the other until it releases. The K-Cup Holder is dishwasher safe.
  2. Clean the Funnel
    The Funnel can be removed from the K-Cup Holder by pulling on it until it snaps off. The Funnel is dishwasher safe. To replace it just snap it back onto the K-Cup Holder.
  3. Clean the exit needle
    The exit needle is located on the inside bottom of the K-Cup Holder. If coffee grounds or cocoa mix gets clogged in the exit needle, it can be cleaned using a paper clip or similar tool. Remove the Funnel from the K-Cup Holder, insert the paper clip into the tube and move it around to loosen the clog and remove any debris. Please note, you cannot poke all the way through the needle as the opening of the needle is located on the side and not the top.
  4. Install the K-Cup assembly into the brewer
    After cleaning, align the K-Cup Holder tabs with the opening placing the two front tabs on the bottom and the single tab on top and snap it into place by pushing down on the top rim.
