SOURCE: Dyson DC17 blockage

You need to "click" off the cone part it fits tight but a little pressure will pull it (no screws holding it) off revealing more screws under. The you should be able make this apart pretty easy. Top tip :- When it's in pieces put the parts in the dish washer to get all the grim off! Don't forget to remove the black gasket it doesn't like water so much :) Good luck

OK. Lost suction almost always means blockage. You need to check all the pipework, the hose and any bits you can remove at the base of the machine - if I remember right, the DC17 has a sort of U shaped bend at the bottom of the handle that you can remove - also turn it over and inspect the clear flexible plastic tube (if it's not blocked, it can get damaged and leak). As for filters, you do of course need regularly to wash the filter that's above the cannister (wash both the blue sponge and the yellow carrier) and be sure they are dried gently for at least 12 hours before putting them back.  If you need new filters, any vacuum service shop should be able to supply them. I hope this helps. I value your feedback so please remember to rate my response.  Good luck!

SOURCE: How do you clean the Dyson dco7 cyclone top

Hi its Darran at Dyson.

We would not recommend that you take the cyclone top apart. This part is designed to be a sealed unit and taking it apart may affect ther performance of your machine ongoing.

If you are concerned with the performance of your machine, please follow the blockage procedure and filter washing instructions on our website in the support section at www.dyson.com or check your user guide.

If you do want to clear dust and debris from the cyclone, we recommend that you simply hold the cyclone top over a bin and bang the sides gently to remove any dust from the inside.

Kind regards
Darran

SOURCE: i opened my dc17 dyson to clean teh motor. trying

I'm not sure about all the switches used in the vacuum, but I recently took some pictures of the power button assembly. The buttons in the picture below are (from left-to-right): Circuit Breaker, Brush Switch, Power Switch

The next picture shows how the plastic buttons that operate the brush and power switches should go together:

And finally, this is how the power button assembly reattaches:

How do you get the canster apart on a dyson animal vacuum


Hi Ira,

You should be able to separate the clear bin and cyclone pack by following these steps:

  • Remove cyclone assembly from the machine, and empty it as usual
  • With the bin base still open, use the silver catch at the rear of the clear bin to separate the bin from the cyclone pack
When you have the two parts separated, you can wash the clear bin using cold water. Make sure it's completely dry before reassembling. You can clean any debris from the shroud using a dry cloth or soft brush - however, the cyclone pack must not be washed or submerged in water, as this could cause damage.

I hope this information is useful to you - if you need any further assistance or advice, please call us free on 1-866-693-9766, or email us at askdysonUS@dyson.com so we can help.

Best wishes,

Jack

Loss of suction: We have cleaned the filter as per the instructions and it has not helped. We have had the Vacuum Cleaner 3 years.


Have you ever cleaned the cyclone out. You should have a 5 year warranty. Dyson will probably replace your cyclone unit for you. Taking it apart isn't that hard You just need a long T-15 driver to get to the screws way up there. Many times the cyclones get clogged because someone either cleaned the whole thing with water or sucked up something wet.
Just check out this video I found on how to do it. Super easy, did mine both (I have a DC07 and DC17)

I can't get the top lid off my dyson dc17. It's


You need to get a long handled t-15 driver or a t-15 bit and a bit holder and extension for a 1/4" drive socket set (12" or longer extension) to get this apart. There are only something like 6 pcs in there and once you get it apart, cleaning it is very easy. Here's a good website on how to take it apart and put it back together. I have done this and it makes a difference. Be sure to sanitize everything once you have it apart. Takes out any funky smells.

http://www.ehow.com/how_5028186_clean-dyson-dc-cyclone-canister.html Just followed the procedure and it works great. A little messy and the canistar seal was tough to break apart, but it worked fine.
