Question about Dyson DC05 Bagless Canister Cyclonic Vacuum

2 Answers

My vacuum cleaner is dumping what it sucks up mostly on to the filter, I expected to find a blockage but not so far ? Can you advise ?.

Cleaning the filter and checking for blockages, can't find any . the small amount of debris that reaches the visible cyclone chamber can be seen swerling round.

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm confident I can resolve this issue - it sounds as if your machine may be missing the bin inner. The bin inner is the lower yellow section shown attached to the base of the clear bin in the image below:

It's possible you may have accidentally thrown this away when emptying the machine recently. To resolve the issue, you would just need to retrieve and refit the bin inner.

If you're unable to locate it, you can order a replacement by calling our freephone UK Helpline on 0800 298 0298. We're available from 8am-8pm from Monday to Friday, and 8am-6pm on weekends. Calls are free from UK landlines.

    Hi Anthony, I'm glad I could help. If the bin inner's missing the airflow, dust and debris won't pass through each stage of separation correctly, causing debris to reach the pre-filter. It sounds like replacing the bin inner should be the correct solution.

So when the hoze is plugged in does the motor rev up higher than with the hoze removed
if it does the head it blocked up
if not its the machine has a blockage
its defo a blockage
so narrow it down and pull off the relevent pipe works on the dyson that channel air etc and check them for blockages

Hi, I have a Dyson DC05 and initially it sucks up ok then stops. On investigation the dust particles are ending up in the pre-motor filter instead of the canister.
I have checked for blockages, and cleaned filters. Any ideas????


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Something is blocking the path of the dirt to the canister and it should not be going directly to the motor filter (diverter valve) that is supposed to be a backup just in case. So that the motor does not burn up, please check with you local vacuum cleaner dealer for a schematic or a product breakdown.

So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

SOURCE: Dyson DC07 Original won't pick up at base

Hi,

Lie machine on its side pull back handle as if vacuuming & switch on (KEEP YOUR FINGERS & ANY LOOSE CLOTHING CLEAR OF BRUSH ROLLER)

Brush should spin if it doesnt ensure clutch control knob on side of machine is in drive position if it isnt rotate knob by hand to drive brush should now spin.

If it doesnt & your machine has A clutch either clutch will need replacing or belts will need replacing.

Manuals are available to replace belts & remove the clutch from this site http://dysonmanuals.llc.nu/index.htm

SOURCE: Dyson Animal .. how to get to Chyclone chambers for cleaning??

The cyclone assembly is glued and cannot be taken apart. The best way of cleaning it , is to remove the top held on with three hex screws , the bottom collecting vessel and the perforated filter. Then blast the cyclones from above with either a pressure washer or hose with a high water pressure source. Leave to completely dry , then reassemble.

SOURCE: Dyson cleaner keeps cutting out, no blockage found, filter clean.

1. Check the on/off button these can also be troublesome and if you've stood on the cable once or twice you could have a break in the wire and it's shorting, check by turning on and wiggle cable around where it enters machine.
2. Faulty thermocouple, it is held in a white plastic housing screwed with one T15 torx screw to the motor housing. You could replace it but I just shorted mine with some wire and it hasn't failed since and more importantly not caught fire yet!

I have a DC41 Animal. It has suction through the hose. When I try to vacuum it stops sucking through the hose but seems to have no suction in the base and the beater roller doesn't work.


Check for a clothes peg at the motor iintake port. They can get that far then jam at the curve so tight youll wonder how you missed it. It will drastically reduce suction yet not cause a clog , and you can't see it

Vacuum relief valve


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

Like most Dyson vacuums, DC24 includes a suction relief valve. This helps protect the motor when too little airflow is passing through the vacuum. This could be due to a blockage, or because the two lifetime washable filters are overdue for wash.

To check for blockages, please follow the steps shown in our online Support guide: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc24new/dc24-multi-floor/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-not-sucking-picking-up-as-well-as-usualdc24

In normal use we recommend washing both filters at least once a month, using cold water without detergent. Allow at least 24 hours for both filters to dry completely before replacing them in the machine:.


I'm confident that washing both filters, and removing any blockages from the airways, will resolve the issue. However if you'd like any guidance from our experts after you've given this a try, you're welcome 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).

Overheating and not sucking properly


You most like have a blockage in the vacuum hose or the filter is choked with dust. Clear the blockage and filter and the suction will return to normal.

I have a egomaxx 1800 vacuum cleaner which is not 'sucking' up at all well. There is no obvious blockage.


Sometimes the blockage is within the hose itself and not easy to spot. The only thing that can keep a vacuum from sucking is somekind of blockage. It is rare that a motor have lost power because of a short thats why it is not sucking, and it would be very obvious because you would smell something burning.
