SOURCE: how do I open the

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).

SOURCE: Dyson DC07 Clear Bin Flap will not release

I just received my replacement root cyclone in the mail today after waiting in the back-ordered status for three months. I positioned a butter knife in between the rubber gasket on the bottom flap lid and the bottom rim of the clear bin at the farthest point from the hinge and slowly and gently wiggled the knife between until the bottom flap just fell open. I examined the rubber gasket and it survived without injury and the bottom flap seals without any gaps...good luck

The bottom of the bin on my Dyson 51 fell off any we can't get it back on


Hi Suzanne, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear about the issue you've had with the bin base on your DC51. This is certainly not something we'd expect to happen under normal use, and we'd like to take some further details.

If a replacement part is needed, we'll be happy to confirm if this is covered under your machine's 5-year warranty. To speak with our experts directly, please call us on 1-877-397-6622 (CA), or email service@dysoncanada.ca

Trigger on my dc07 does not open cylinder flap,what can i do


Hi Stephen,
This is a pretty uncommon problem and it is not terribly easy to fix. I suspect Dyson became aware of it and changed the mechanism as I have only seen this issue with Dyson DC07. Basically there is a long plastic rod from the trigger to the bottom flap when you pull on it the latch is released and the flap opens. Your plastic rod has most likely broken. The unfortunate thing is you cannot buy that rod you might have to buy the complete radix assembly. It normally happens that the bottom end breaks off when someone holds the base in place and pulls the trigger.
If this is the case then you may be able to super carefully glue the pieces back together. Watch the video I linked below it shows how to get the radix apart. The tricky part for you is that you will then need to insert a coat hanger or some other slim long thing into the centre and manually push the release which is right at the base of the radix in the middle this will release the flap.
From there see if you can find the broken bit and repair the pieces. Super glue wont hold, you will need araldite or some other super strong compound.
Of course if this sounds like too much trouble just buy a new radix.

I have a Dyson DC07 upright vacuum I emptied the cylinder and the bottom lid fell off not sure how to reattach in case it breaks - any clues?


It has two little pegs that hold it onto the perspex cylinder. Really, it shouldn't fall off during normal use. Check one of the little pegs hasn't broken off. If it has, you need to replace the bin flap. If the pegs are OK, check the two mounting holes on the perspex cylinder. If you need to replace either, you can get them from here: http://manchestervacs.co.uk/Dyson/DC07-spares.html as Dyson will not sell you cylinder components but those guys will.

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

I have a dyson dc07 bagless vacuum cleaner. How do I split the top and bottom halves of the dust collection bin? There is a lever and catch on the side, I have tried pulling and turning, but with no...


Hi at the top of the Cyclone there is a lever underneath the Handle. The Handle I am referring to says Dyson on it. Firstly you must release the Cyclone from the spine. After doing this you will be left with the Cyclone and the Cyclone Bin all in a oner.

To empty the bin you must lift the lever which is underneath the Dyson handle.

You can only seperate the bin from the cyclone whilst the bin flap is open.

Once you have opened the bin flap using the lever you can then use the lever and catch to seperate the 2 items.

Poor Suction


I recently bought a second hand Dyson DC07. Its suction was poor. I removed all the un-clipable pipe bits and to remove any blockage but it all looked clear. The Final Sponge and hepper filter did have a lot of dust in it and the rotating brush was full of hair but nothing bad.

I eventual gave in to curiosity and removed the three screws in the top or the yellow removable dust collection tube and cyclone bit to see what was in there. The mechanism to release the flap at the bottom of the collection tube does not allow you to remove the lid completely but it does open far enough to get inside. I found the whole top section of the yellow plastic bit blocked by a big plug of compacted dust and a champagne cork. If you are willing to take the risk and have a torx 15 screwdriver handy it that part may be blocked. It did get a bit messy.

If I was going to attempt the same procedure I'd remove the dust collection unit from the vacuum cleaner as I did before, but leave the clear tube attached and the emptying flap firmly closed to reduce the mess from the dust falling out the bottom while cleaning the top part.

Canister problem


If it won't latch after cleaning the latch and making sure that everything is seated well, get in touch with Dyson, they're great about making things right with their vacuums.
