Dc07 blowing dust out

Hi David,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC07. Dust should not be coming out of the machine during use - this may be due to a part which is missing or incorrectly fitted, or a blockage somewhere in the cleaner. To check everything is correct with the machine, please follow the steps shown in our online support guide:

Please also check that the pre-filter is in place, and that you've maintained it as recommended. In normal use, it should be washed at least once every 3-6 months as shown in the video below. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 12 hours for the filter to dry completely before replacing it.

Hopefully following these steps should resolve your issue, but if you need any further assistance, please get in touch with us directly by calling free on 0800 298 0298. Our Helpline is available from 7am until 10pm, 7 days a week.

Kind regards,

Loss of performance, belt seems ok filter is clean

the lifetime pre motor filter could be blocked, dust filter (Blue) in the circular housing end of motor housing. or the machine air intake is blocked or the cyclonic chamber needs removing and cleaning. All of the bits not silver grey can be removed take them off and clear out the tubes. If after this it has still got the lack of power the motor may be on its way out (but you would be able to smell it burning) hope this helps

How do i empty my dyson dc07

Hi its Darran at Dyson.

Remove the bin and cyclone assembyl by pressing the release button above the word Dyson on the carrying handle towards the machine.

Then hold the bin and cyclone assembly over a dustbin and pull the trigger located underneath the carrying handle which will release the bin base to empty the dust and debris from the bin.

I hope this information is useful to you and should you need any further help or advice, please contact our Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Kind regards

Very little suction in hose no tears in hose

Hi there, SmartAlec from . I have fixed hundreds of Dyson DC07 vacuum cleaners over the last few years and i would say there are 2 possible causes for the loss of suction.
1st is that the filter looks clean but is actually worn anyway. The way to tell is remove the washable filter from your vacuum cleaner. Take out the foam insert this seems to last longer that the other part. Hold up the plastic cage to the light and look at the white part (well it used to be white anyway) you should be able to see light through it. If you cant see through it you need to replace it. Here is a link to that filter for purchase . To verify this is the problem just run the vacuum without the filter in you should see an improvement - note do not actually **** up material the filter is there for a good reason.
2nd problem is that you have a blockage in your radix assembly. If you take off the whole dirt bin and feel the suction on the upright part where the chamber joins the vacuum (basically bypassing the radix) if there is good suction here you will either need to replace the cyclone top or dismantle and clean it. (it is very difficult to clean as it doesn't completely dissassemble)
Hope this helps - If you want more help send me a message

The problem has been getting worse. It works, then cuts off. Then works and cuts off. Making sure the canister is not full. Time b/w it working is getting longer and longer. Almost seems this time when I...

We had exactly the same problem with our Animal. After the motor was replaced under warranty a different engineer came out and diagnosed it as the cyclone chamber itself being clogged.(the bit with the purple cylinders on it). This is completely unserviceable and it too was replaced under warranty - along with a second motor! Not the answer you wanted I'm sure but you're wasting your time looking for a problem elsewhere. Ultimately the motor is pulling through a clogged chamber and you will burn it out! Hope this helps...

My dyson dc07 works fine for about 5 to 10 min then turns itself off leave it for 10 min or so then it will work again for a bit then does it all over again. help please thanks

Your machine is overheating. This is usually caused by the dust bin being too full, your filter is long overdue for a cleaning, or there is a clog in the machine. Usually a cheap fix regardless... Wash your filter, check the removeable parts for blockages, and empty your dust bin.
