SOURCE: Red light for HIPPA filter won't go off

Red light is sign of reduced suction due to a blokage of some sort. If you are sure the filter is thoroughly cleaned, check the hose, wand, and the nozzle connector for obstructions of any kind.

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!

My Dyson DC35 stops after the first minute. Then it keeps stopping every few seconds. I checked for obstructions, washed the filter and cleaned the brush. Is it the batterie?

In the inlet pipe, there is a small valve that can get jammed shut with debris this causes them to pulse start, stop, start, stop, and so on. Ensure this is floating free, not jammed shut, it works purely on gravity... The other possibility is the cyclone needs cleaning. Remove the filter and check no dirt is lodged there. Remove the top torx screws and keep them safe. Carefully remove the top check for damaged seals gaskets etc (this can cause a malfunction). Again keep safe. The cyclone can then be inspected for dirt and dust clogging holes and airways. Clean thoroughly and reassemble, make sure all components are dry if they have been washed to clean them. Hopefully, this will restore the machine to working order

Dyson animal pulses on and off

Hi, this happens when the PCB detects a blockage. Take the filter out and then try it. If it no longer goes for only 5 seconds then your filter needs washed. Wash the filter in your washing machine.

My dyson v6 pulses when I put the filter back in

if fitting/ removing the filter makes a change ( filters no nothing but filter air), then the problem is the filter

Dyson V6 Animal keeps start and stopping.

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

Your Dyson V6 vacuum is designed to make a pulsing noise to warn you when something is preventing airflow from passing through the machine. This could be a blockage in the motorised floor tool, wand or bin inlet. It's also a good idea to check the bin inlet flap can open and close freely, and isn't jammed in place.

Our video support guide will walk you through the simple troubleshooting checks:

I'm confident that removing any blockages and checking the bin inlet flap will resolve the issue with your machine. But if you would like any further help, just give the Dyson Customer Helpline a call on 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) 1800 239 766 (AU), or 0800 298 0298 (UK).

Dyson hand held vacuum runs for a few seconds then shuts off?

Hi, it's Allie from Crucial Vacuum.

Other than the battery being defective, this problem may be caused by a blockage or a dirty filter. If after checking your unit for blockages it still having the same issue, you may need to wash your filter.

Ideally, washable filters should be washed after every 3-4 uses. First, remove the dust from your washable filter. As it may spread around the air, it is best to do this outside. Tap the filter gently to get rid of most of the dust. With lukewarm running water, rinse the outside surface of the filter, without using any soap. Allow the filter to air dry between 24 to 48 hours before you replace it in your vacuum. Once the filter is clean and dry, place it back into your unit and turn it on.

To minimize the waiting time for the filter to be completely dry for it to be used again, it is highly recommended to have a spare filter to use while you clean the one in your hand held vacuum.

My Dyson Ball DC 25 made very loud noise when I put the hepa filter back on. I just washed the hepa filter and it had been dried for more than 24 hours. After I took off the filter, the sound was normal....

It sounds like it could need replaced or there is something stopped up in it somewhere . Clean all the crevices in it dirt could possibly be congested in it . If it still does it after you clean it out change the filter .

Put wet filter in dyson DC35 will not run will it dry out

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

The filters in our handheld machines should be washed at least once a month using cold water without detergent. However, they should always be allowed to try completely before they're replaced, which may take at least 12 hours. It can help to place the filter somewhere warm - for example, by a radiator, or in an airing cupboard.

Unfortunately, if you have used your machine with a wet filter in place, this is likely to have caused damage to the motor. Using your machine with a wet filter will also have voided the machine's 2-year guarantee.

I would encourage you to get in touch with us directly so we can confirm which replacement parts you may need to get the machine running again. You can reach our customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

Best wishes,
