This is fairly easy. Click on the button at the top of the hand above the cannister. It's a purple button and the handle faces the front and says Dyson on it. This separate the cannister from the body.

Next, hold the now full cannister above a trash can and click on the red button which was below the purple button (but hidden when it was attached).

My Dyson DC40 Animal sounds like it's running on half power. I've only had it one day and it seemed great considering it was sucking up an incredible amount of half/dirt. I took the canister to empty it,...


I would recommend you check the gaskets and make sure they are all connected properly so the vacuum doesn't lose suction. Also, check the filters. If they get too dirty the vacuum will lose suction.

You could check out Dyson's site: dyson.com/support.aspx

Hope that helps.

My Dyson is clogged on top of the cyclones and I cannot find a way to open it up to get the clog out. Please help me. I have the purple upright Dyson. Thank you


Hi, Thankyou for using FixYa, We love to fix things.

Hi your version of the Dyson is the Animal if its purple.

Right, here we go.

1. Firstly you have to detach the cyclone from the main spine, as you would when you wish to take it off to empty it. So you now have the Cyclone and the clear plastic bin in your hand.
2 Next we need to empty the clear plastic bin, just do this as you normally would by pulling the little Silver lever which is underneath the handle. The handle i am refering to says Dyson on it, curved shape. This releases the bin flap and lets any debris fall out. So you now have the cyclone and the bin with the bin flap open.
3. to seperate the Clear bin from the cyclone the bin flap must be open. At the top of the bin and the bottom of the cyclone at the front (directly down from the handle) you will see a purple lever attached to the cyclone and a clear handle on the bin itself. Simply push the purple lever upwards and the bin will seperate from the cyclone.

4. You will now have access to the cyclone.

5. To clean the cyclone properly i would suggest you powerwash it completly. You can also clean inside the cyclone as well as cleaning the wee holes at the top of it.

6. I would then recommend you use a germ killer such as mild bleach on the cyclone. rinse then let dry before using. Do not let water get into the Dyson motor as this will damage it.

7. You can also clean the bin using a pwer washer and bleach or Mr Muscle etc.

8. Simply re-attache the bin to the cyclone. It just clicks back in.

I hope you found this advise usefull

Hi its Darran at Dyson.

The trigger mechanism which stops the bin base coming open is part of the cyclone top. this part can be purchased via our website at www.dyson.com.

Kind regards

The purple cylinder on my Dyson 14 Animal vacuum smells terrible


Make sure that the filter is completely dry before you reinsert it. If not, it will mildew, emitting a horrible smell. When you clean your cylinder, you must wait for at least three to four days to make sure that it is completely dry.
