SOURCE: Changing the HEPA filter on a DC17 Animal

Just took my Dyson in and yes my HEPA needed changing. It's under the right wheel (as you're looking at the machine); you can see it through the "vents" above the wheel. The screw is on the bottom of machine.

You will probably need a Torx (star) 15 screwdriver -- that's what Dyson seems to use everywhere.

SOURCE: 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!

Are you sure that you are correctly connecting the filter, and flipping the tabs to "lock" it into the "closed" position.

The bottom filter under the canister keeps popping out everytime I vacuum. This is really annoying. The bottom looks sort of dirty but I'm not sure how to clean it.The top looks very clean. I know I need...


Hello,

This is a pretty clear indication that your filter is clogged and needs to be replaced. HEPA filters are different then say pre-motor filters, or sponge filters. Because they are usually the last filter before the air is exhausted, it's usually catching very tiny microscopic particles. Because of this, trying to determine if the filter is dirty or clogged can be difficult, if not impossible on HEPA pleated exhaust filters.

The fact that your filters continues popping out, indicates that the air is not being able to pass through the filter as it's supposed to, and is instead the air is having to try and find a different way to escape, causing the force of the back up of air to blow the filter out.

I think if you replace this filter, it should fix the problem completely. Because this filter is designed to capture microscopic particles rather then large particles, washing this filter, or getting it wet is not advised, and wouldn't be an effective way to clean it. You really will need to replace the filter soon, but if you'd like to try and prolong the life of your filter, you may use an air compressor, and blow from the top of the filter (the area that looks clean), and clear the microscopic particles, and dust out of the filter this way. If you suffer from breathing issues, asthma, or allergies, I would highly advise against doing this without a mask on. The dust that will come out is extremely fine dust that can cause people with the above conditions to suffer greatly. Doing this outdoors is highly recommended.

An air compressor can certainly prolong the life of HEPA filters, but again, sooner or later you'll need to replace the filter.

What filters do i need for the eureka the boss bagless vacuum w/widetrack modal 4495


There is a Cassette Micron Filter 60696.If you have a HEPA cartridge filter you need EUREKA's HEPA part 61500.In earlier models there is a micron filter instead of a HEPA filter--for that you need EUREKA's Micron part 60801. But if you have that HEPA filter, the manual says you have to use the HEPA filter to achieve the closed HEPA filtration system again.

you generally dont clean hepa filters .. you replace them .. temporarily you can tap them on the driveway to loosen up the big particles .. but the filter normally is replaced ... there are some filters that are washable in hot soapy water .. but hepa filters are normally not ..

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.

Water leaking from out of the heppa filter


Reasons for that to happen:
a) You have tilted the vac while vacuuming
b) Used the Rainbow without separator (basket like thing on the bottom of the motor)
c) Overfilled the rainbow tank with water (may have happened when shampooing with AquaMate)

Clean and install back the separator, remove HEPA, Set the Rainbow on empty water pan (with HEPA removed) turn it on for a while so everything will dry. Install new HEPA.

You will have to get a new HEPA filter (you can find them HERE)

Good Luck,
Rocky

My hoover wind tunnel vaccum has a hepa filter that is supposed to be self cleaning but continues to plug up. it is not easy to get to and takes forever to clean it out so the suction is strong again.


do you have the SELF-CLEANING, rotating HEPA filter?

I just fixed my HEPA filter not rotating!!

It involves taking apart the vacuum HEPA area. All screws are the same size. There are a LOT of 'em. Really straightforward putting it back together too.

ok, once you take the HEPA canister area off the vacuum, careful with the wires! Unplug them from the controller board. You open up the HEPA chamber by removing more screws until you see where the motor that turns the filter is mounted on the side. Remove motor from the green chamber. Note where the washer goes. Once the motor is off, you'll see that the center hub that drives the HEPA filter is rounded out. What I did was jam little bits of aluminum from a pop can into the space between the circle and the square to force the walls back to square. I started by folding a little piece of aluminum over and over so it was about three layers thick. Jammed that in. That wasn't quite enough thickness so I shoved another piece with it. If you can find something that is about 4 times the thickness of a pop can aluminum, that'd probably work too. Slight wedge shape on the tip would help. Any sort of tiny shim.

To test your work, just put a couple of holder screws into the HEPA cannister housing, plug in the cover/switch, plug in the HEPA moter. Turn it on for a few seconds to make sure the filter turns. Then you can add more thickness to the hub or put things back together.
