Hi Vladimir, it's Jack at Dyson.

The DC08 Contact Head is manufactured and supplied to us as a complete assembly, and therefore we don't have the internal hose available to order separately. If the internal hose is damaged, it would be worth replacing the Contact Head to ensure effective pickup performance. You can order genuine spares directly from Dyson by visiting www.dyson.com

If you'd like further advice from our experts, please call the Dyson UK customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298. Calls are free from UK landlines, and we're available from 8am-8pm from Monday to Friday, and 8am-6pm on weekends.

i managed to take the cyclone apart. here is some help with what i did I hope this helps. You will need a philips and torx screw drivers. Especially torx with T - handles and thin shaft makes the task much faster and easier.
1. first undo the screws holding the top handle.
2. lift that part of the handle and pull towards the other end of the handle at the same time. Care this is a tricky manoeuvre but the other end is just sloted in. sometimes may be glued so some force may be needed. see photo 1
59cbdbc.jpg
3 Once the handle is off. there will be screw under the end that you pulled off. undo that screw. see photo 57bd18a.jpg



4. Now turn the cyclone upside down. Pull the cone off. this is only a push fit and should pull off

5. Now you should be able to see the three torx screws holes as indicated in the photo.38c6322.jpg

6 The removal of these torx will enable this section to be pulled off exposing one more layer with three further torx screws to be removed as indicated in the next photo7a60cdc.jpg
7 Once the final torx screws are removed, turn the cyclone upright and the top bit which held the handle should come off exposing the complex combe structure. see photo 92fa764.jpg
8 Then you should be able to lift the combe structure as well see photo 349cdfc.jpg

9. and final photo of all the part that have come apart d6aa9d9.jpg

10. Thoroughly was all the parts with water and make ABSOLUTLY sure that the part are dry before putting it altogather again. Your vacuum will be as good as new. mine was. good luck and happy cleaning.

SOURCE: turbine head of my Dyson DC08 does not spin

This response is likely too late coming, however for others the problen appears to be the same as the fault with my turbine head which was that the turbine fan had become loose on its spindle. With no pressure on the brushes, friction would allow the fan to turn and drive the brushes via the belt. The faulty part is not available separately however I have repaired mine using araldite glue. Other things to check is for a worn belt. Cheers.

SOURCE: My dyson dc08 has a loss of suction. A flap valve ...

You have used your Dyson too long without thorough cleaning - Here's how.

Obtain a torx screwdriver, or a set of torx bits, you will need to select the correct size when you come to remove the screws. They are all the same, so you will need only one.

Take the radix catridge off the machine as if to empty the clear plastic sucking container. (From here on your hands get dirty).

Firmly pull out the inner conical funnel. Here it is removed. (Note I am showing photos of the cleaned device).
_182.jpg

Next remove the three torx screws. You can see the recesses these are hiding in in the above picture they are the holes without nozzles. The screws are self tappers screwed into plastic, and are easy to undo.

Remove the lower part of the housing and its rubber sealing ring.
_183.jpg
Note the orientation for when you put it back together. The above photo shows the lower bell housing opened away from the top part as if opening a door. It's pretty hard to put them together incorrectly so don't worry too much.

You now need to remove two further screws which are recessed into the sides of the inside of the housing. Their positions are easy to find as they are the only recesses large enough, and match up with two curves on the outside of the housing. They are at the left and right in this picture.

_184.jpg

Next you need to remove the handle at the top of the radix housing that you normally use to pick up the device.

_185.jpg
Remove the two screws deep in the tubular holes you can see at the right of this picture.

Then slightly lift the end of the handle at the end where you removed the screws.

Next use a screw driver to push the other end of the handle off the housing away from the end where you just removed the screws.

_186.jpg
This picture shows the handle pushed out (or ready to be re-attached)

Finally remove the screw revealed by removal of the handle.

You can now lift off the top housing revealing the wormy looking cyclone device This is where most of the **** builds up.. Lift this off and clean everything out thoroughly with water.

Make sure everything is clean and dry!!!!

Re-assemble in reverse order.

_188.jpg

Now your Dysin is restored to original sucking power.

Question re hose and head


Hi There,
Ok so the hose definitely cannot be interchanged, all the dysons have a different (slightly) fitting where the hose clips to the vacuum. The head I think can be fitted from a DC19. To be sure I would buy the correct one for your model. Dyson have a bad habit of using different fittings for different models to force you into buying the proper dyson one. With the DC05 and earlier you could adapt heads from normal vacuums but they stopped it from dc08 on.

The suction on my DC08 feels like it is down to 10% to what it was when I had it new. I had a similar problem about 2 yrs back and even changed the head unit. It worked fine for a few months but has...


Some of the dyson units strip down further using torx bits, sometimes the internal holes of the plastic components get clogged with fine dust that hardens, causing loss of suction. Although the filters are cleaned regularly the airflow is reducedthus giving poor cleaning power.

The turbine head on my dc08 will not turn although there seems to be lots of suction


The dyson have a bit of an achilles heel with their turbine heads. Half the time you can resurect them by simply removing the baseplate and pulling of the rollers and emptying out all the **** that seems to accumulate inside the brush roller. The other half of the time that same dirt has worked its way to the centre part that holds the rollers, this is where the bearing is and unfortunately there is no way to access the bearing to change it. Not the best design really. If you clean the inside of the rollers very regularly you will not have this problem but who remembers to do that kind of maintenance often enough.
If you need to buy a turbine head to replace a broken one try vacuumspot or nelsonvacuums if you are in Australia.
Hope this helps you.

My Dyson upright suddenly won't stay in the upright position. It appears that a little rubber piece has fallen out of position.


- Stand behind the vacuum cleaner and look at the right-hand side wheel
- Remove the AI PIPE (it has two purple buttons that you push together to lift it up and out - it looks like a Tuba)
- Lay the handle down and look for a black button that will be exposed in front of the square hole
- Stick your index finger and middle finger into the vacant AI Pipe Hole (the square hole)
- Reach over with your thumb and press the black button in front of the square hole
- Whilst pushing the black button, lift your index finger and your middle finger and move the gray plastic piece up (lift the square
hole basically)
- Remove your fingers from the square hole
- Lift the handle and stand your machine back upright again
- Place the AI Pipe back into the square hole
