Please make contact with Dyson directly and give the Dyson Helpline a call on 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA), 0800 298 0298 (UK). Our experts will be happy to talk you through some further diagnostic checks when you have your machine easily to hand.

Thanks

What does the spring connect to in the release button for the cyclone?


Hi Roxanne

The spring is typically located beneath the button which you press to release the bin door.

If you have experienced a failure of some kind, I would suggest contacting us directly via the Dyson Helpline on 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA), 0800 298 0298 (UK). Our experts will be happy to talk you through some further diagnostic checks when you have your machine easily to hand.

My dyson dc17 won't turn on and stay on unless you hold the red button on?


My vacuum had this exact same problem, but was out of warranty because it was remanufactured. Thankfully, it's a very quick, five-minute fix.
  1. UNPLUG The Vacuum!
  2. Remove the cannister.
  3. Extend the handle and remove it.
  4. Remove the two torx (T-15) screws behind the power button, where the handle normally stows.
  5. There are four tabs holding the front plate containing the power button on; use your screwdriver to release them.
  6. Gently pull the front plate off.
  7. The switch on the right is the power button. Remove it, try clicking it a few times; if it sticks, great! Replace it and reassemble, otherwise you'll need to replace it.

HOW DO YOU EMPTY THE BIN ON A dc07


Grasp the handle on top of the cyclone, then press the button which will be just by your thumb. That releases the cyclone (with bin attached) from the rest of the machine. Then unscrew the cyclone from the bin. Job done.

Pulling up on button will not release bottom of cannister.


The gasket is sticking to the dump lid. While holding it over a waste receptacle, operate the release button and pull the waste gate at the same time. Rinse the canister and dry thoroughly. Apply a spray of silicone to the gasket surface, let it sit for a minute, and wipe off the excess with a paper towel. This should fix you up.
Best regards, --W/D--

Bottom of dirt container doesn't stay closed


The catch/latch that is on the bottom of the bin button release has likely broken.  
If you take out the canister (as when you are dumping the bin), and flip it upside down and then squeeze the bin release button, you will see that it moves a rod inside the cyclone assembly.  At the end of this rod is a plastic (plastic.. redundant, as the entire Dyson is practically plastic) latch that catches onto the bin's lid and locks it in place.  A broken latch means it doesn't lock the lid in.
What you need is a replacement latch.  Note that the "Bin Release Button + Rod assembly" that are sometimes sold on ebay do *not* contain the latch at the end of the rod.  Also the bottom bin assembly does not contain the required parts.
The cyclone assembly should have the full bin release rod + latch, so if you can't find the latch, then a new cyclone assembly would work also (but will cost more, obviously).
