    My DC17 is packed with dog hair in the "level 3 root cyclone" area. I cannot seem to be able to disassemble this part of the machine to get it out. Only screw visible are torx head for the handle only (?). There must be some way to get this ****** apart to get at the dog hair.

I would use an air compressor then, if you don't have one, see if a friend has one or possible you can rent one if you really can't find one, that is what we use

Animal Pro DC 54. Can I rinse the filter?


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

The Dyson Cinetic DC54 has no filters to wash, replace or maintain. It's not necessary to maintain the cyclone pack either - it's very important not to wash or submerge the cyclone pack as this can cause damage to your machine that wouldn't be covered under the Dyson guarantee.

It's normal for harmless static to cause fine dust particles to cling to parts of the clear bin and cyclone pack after use. This won't affect performance as airflow doesn't need to pass through this dust, as it would with a traditional bagged or filter-based vacuum. The oscillating Cinetic tips ensure dust and allergens are separated from the airflow and thrown into the clear bin.

When you empty your machine, tapping the cyclone pack firmly will help dislodge any clinging dust particles. Any clinging fluff or debris can be removed from the stainless steel mesh shroud using a soft brush or a dry cloth:

dyson-animal-pro-dc-54-rinse-out-filter-kfbnp2bw3njuiocelunhji5a-2-0.jpg Please do not clean the cyclone pack in any other way as you could risk causing damage.

I hope this information helps, but if you'd like any additional guidance you're welcome to get in touch with our experts directly. You can reach the Dyson Australia team by calling 1800 239 766.

The shroud on my dc59 is full of dust is there any way of cleaning it


Hi Marian, it's Jack at Dyson.

It's normal for harmless static to cause fine dust particles to cling to parts of the cyclone pack after use. This won't affect performance as the airflow doesn't need to pass through this dust.

It's not possible to remove the mesh shroud, but you can clear any fluff or clinging debris from the shroud after removing the clear bin. In order to do this, press the red bin base release catch once to open the bin base. Then with the base still open, press the same red release catch firmly a second time to disengage the bin.

You can then use a dry cloth or soft brush to remove any debris from the fine mesh shroud. Please don't attempt to wash or submerge either the clear bin or the cyclone pack, as this could cause damage not covered under your Dyson warranty.

I hope this information is useful, but you're welcome to get in touch with our experts if you'd like further guidance. You can reach us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

How do I dissasemble Dyson DC41 cyclone tubes?


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

We would strongly advise against attempting to dismantle DC41's cyclone pack. This could cause damage, and can void your machine's free Dyson warranty. The cyclone pack is engineered to work effectively without maintenance, although you can remove the clear bin to remove any debris from the mesh shroud if needed.

Please note it's normal for harmless static generated in use to cause fine dust particles to cling to the cyclone pack, but this shouldn't affect performance. You can dislodge most loose particles by gently tapping the cyclone pack when you empty your machine after use.

DC41 has two washable filters, engineered to last the lifetime of the vacuum in normal use. The filters should be washed with cold water without detergent at least once a month, as shown in the video below. Allow at least 24 hours for both filters to dry completely before replacing them.

If you're concerned about any aspect of your vacuum I would encourage you to contact us directly so we can provide further assistance. If a repair or replacement part is needed, we can confirm if this is covered under warranty. You can reach us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

I have just brought a Dyson DC 07 from an auction . It seems ti have a blockage or somthing in the8 cyclone part


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

With the bin separated from the cyclone top, try lightly banging the side of the cyclone top while holding it over a bin. This should remove any dust or debris caught inside.

If this doesnt clear it a replacement cyclone top can be purchased direct from Dyson via www.dyson.com.

Kind regards

Cleaning!


Hiya... I would follow the suggestions you have been given already.. it is a bad idea to wash it..

1..You are not guaranteed to get all the dirt from the places you cant reach.

2. If you get it it wet chances are it will cake on even worse in the places you cant reach.

3. If it,s not too bad .. would use a blower to not only blow through .. but another hoover to **** out, the loose debris as you're going .. and use a long thin stiff brush etc... and no. I would suggest you dont do it in the house..lol

4. If its so bad that the cone is not serviceable.. can get a replacement UK price for around£30.. or direct from dyson!

Normally some Dyson parts can be a bit tricky to take apart, and damage will occur!

Hope its useful!

Regards Faggly
