SOURCE: I am unable to open the canister to remove the old

Overtime the dirt canister can get somewhat stuck. Once you unclip it, you will need to apply some force and pull down. The dirt canister should release.

    No suction through brush or accessory pipe


    Clog somewhere. There may be a " secondary filter" that needs to be replaced. It may be there to "protect" the motor and blower.
    Check Owner's manual and it's troubleshooting. Customer service is usualy helpful if you email or call.

    How do replace belt on dc41


    Ouch The video below shows how to to remove the brush head and how to clean it. I almost think that Dyson didn't ever expect this belt to break. The rest of the disassembly to get to the brush seems to be done by removing torx screws, I have not been able to find a replacement from dyson. A google search shows several sites that sell a replacement belt.

    The hose suction on my Dyson Animal (DC41) is fine, but will not disengage when you put the hose back and want to use the floor sweeper.


    Hi Stacy, it's Jack at Dyson.

    This issue you've described with your DC41 sounds unusual, as the changeover valve will divert suction to the cleaner head automatically when you recline the machine into the vacuuming position. If it's not doing this, it's possible you have a blockage somewhere in the cleaner head, internal hose or changeover valve.

    To check for this, please follow the steps shown in our online Support guide: http://www.dyson.com/support/dc41/dc41-irspu/diagnosis-root-menu/performance-flo-area-check-dc41/flo-brushbarvid-dc41/redirect-to-performance-flo-base-dc41-checking-the-internal-hose/performance-flo-base-dc41-checking-the-internal-hose

    How do i replace the hepa filter on a dyson dc18? I removed it and now I cannot put it back on.


    It is very simple to change the filter and re-attach the canister. Once you have removed the main canister (the one that has the washable filter) you should see the plastic canister, which houses the Hepa Filter. 1) To make life easy, turn your vacuum around, so you are now looking at the back (where the hose and wand are). 2) Remove the hose and wand as you normally would, if you were going to use them. Just lay it on the floor. 3) Now that they are out of the way, you should see the grey plastic holder, towards the bottom (approx 6 inches above the red release peddle for the vacuum. It is attached to the vacuum with only 2 Phillips-Head screws, and was used to keep the hose in place. 4) Use a screwdriver to remove the screws (one one each side). Once it's removed you should easily beagle to change the Hepa Filter. NOTE: Pay attention to where the 4 inverted latches on the canister are, and pay special attention to the fact that there is an extra latch on the canister, which faces the opposite direction of the others. It is this latch on the canister, which must be located through the back handle of the vacuum, since this was the main latch that was secured by the grey hose piece, which you first removed. 5) To reassemble the canister, line up the clips,especially the one that I just mentioned, and make sure the canister is flush against the base. 6) Now, reattach the hose securing piece that you originally removed, and the Hepa Filter and plastic canister should now be fully secured. 7) Place the hose and wand back into their original position and you should now be ready to vacuum. I hope this was helpful. S.I. Educator

    Where is the filter


    Dyson put filters in three locations. 1) Remove the canister, there should be a release clip in the front above the handle, this allows the top to tip backwards. 2) On the left side, at the main unit is a round cover with thumb release, this pulls straight out. These are cleanable filters, RINSE ONLY no soap!!
    3) Under the canister is a filter, the cover has 3 clips which need to be pried gently to open the cover. This is a hepa filter and cannot be cleaned, it must be replaced.

    Canister problem


    If it won't latch after cleaning the latch and making sure that everything is seated well, get in touch with Dyson, they're great about making things right with their vacuums.

    Emptying cylinder


    I hope you've found out by now, but, in case you haven't, the latch to remove the canister is right by the handle on top of it, just don't lift until you release the latch with your thumb, it's got a safety to keep you from hitting the release when you're using that handle to carry the vacuum.  (good engineering).

    you can download a manual from the dyson site, here:
