Hi there, there is only one Torx screw holding the motor body together. It is small and located directly behind the trigger switch. Be VERY careful, the motor assembly is NOT easy to reassemble!

Hi Laurie, it's Jack at Dyson.

We'd advise against dismantling your DC35 any further than is shown in the user guide, as this could cause damage to the machine. DC35's V2 digital motor is manufactured in a clean room environment and should not be removed from the main body.

If your DC35 doesn't seem to be working correctly we'd appreciate the opportunity to take some further details. You can reach our experts directly on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

We'll look forward to hearing from you.

SOURCE: How do you take the DC11 apart?

Unplug the unit from any power first.


To get the unit apart you have to Carefully pry off the wheels from both sides of the unit to allow access to another 4 torx screws. Use a longer flat blade screw driver and insert this between the wheel and the body of the vacum as close to the wheels center of rotation as much as possible. This should allow you open the clamshell like case. Once inside you can test the power switch and connections. My switch tested good but there is a problem with the power cord that I am trying to determine.

I am trying to replace the cord but the cord reel assembly and cord seems tighly integrated so I may end up buying the replacement power cord assembly if it is available for purchase to the general public and not only service centers. I will try the plug into the wall assembly first as it is easier to replace.

Good luck

Hi there Creddiscks,
There isn't much more to it once you have those screws out. The rest of the chamber is not designed to be pulled apart unfortunately. I have made a video titled

    SOURCE: Lower filter repair to eliminate excess noise

    Hi there,

    I'm sorry to hear your DC18 is making an unusual noise. Please note, the filter located beneath the clear bin is designed to last the lifetime of the machine, and does not need to be maintained or replaced. Attempting to clean this filter is likely to cause damage, so we'd strongly advise against this.

    Although I note you've already cleaned the filter located inside the cyclone pack, you might want to take a look at the video below to check you've done so as recommended. In normal use, this should be done at least once every 3 months. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 12 hours for the filter to dry completely somewhere warm before replacing it.

    You may also want to run through the troubleshooting steps shown in our Support guide to make sure there are no obstructions you may have missed:

    If your machine continues to make an unusual noise, I'd encourage you to get in touch with us directly, as we'd appreciate the opportunity to provide further assistance. You can reach us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

    Hi Andrea, it's Jack at Dyson.

    I'm sorry to hear your mother is having difficulty with her DC35 cordless vacuum. It sounds like these are two separate issues, and we would be happy to provide further assistance in determining the cause of both. If replacement parts are needed, we can also confirm whether or not these are covered under the 2-year Dyson warranty.

    When your mother has her DC35 easily to hand, she would just need to call the Dyson Customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU). Our experts will be able to talk her through some simple diagnostic checks to locate the cause of the issues. It's possible we may even be able to resolve them right over the phone.

    We'll look forward to speaking with her.

    How do you open the dyson 14 to replace the belt?


    It has torx head screws you will need a set of them to take it apart the screw driver type will work better than the bits because they are recessed.

    Belt on but brushes not turning


    I have never worked on a DC14, but if when it was working normally the brushes stopped rotating with the machine in the upright position, then it has a clutch mechanism.
    The Dyson models with a clutch have two belts - one connects the output of the motor to the clutch, the other connects the clutch to the brush bar.
    I suspect the belt you are to refering to is the one from the bar to the brush. Unfortuenately the other belt is most likely hidden under a plastic cover, so you cant see if it is okay or not without some dismantling. This cover is not easy to remove and requires a Torx driver to under the securing screws. Unless you have access to such a tool, probably time to call Dyson or a Vacuum repairer.

    My dyson will not stay on when i press the button.


    OK...so while I'm sure that hitting the power button w/ a mallet will work...I was having the same issue and felt uncomfortable hitting my very expensive Dyson w/ a mallet. 
    Here is what I did to fix the problem I have a DC17...I am sure instructions will vary by model Here is what you will need: 1. flat head screw driver 2. Torx -15 screw driver.  
    1. remove the dust tank  2.Pull the extension tube (handle) out (as if you were going to  vacuum a tight area.  3. there are 2 torx screws that you will have to remove 4. there are 4 retaining clips that you will use the flat head screw driver to unlatch.   5. After you remove the torx screws and release the 4 retaining clips, the front panel (that houses the power button) can be removed.  6. This will expose the actual power button itself.  Most likely it was jammed. 7. Once you think you have fixed it...test out your fix. 8.  If fixed...reassemble
