Question about Dyson DC05 Bagless Canister Cyclonic Vacuum
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.

So when the hoze is plugged in does the motor rev up higher than with the hoze removed

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????
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.

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

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.

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!

If it is not on the bare floor setting then you most likely have a belt issue it is not an easy fix I am sorry to say if your mechanically inclined I can tell you how to replace it.
