If you have a paper filter take it outside and knock it against the house and replace. Or if it has a cloth cover shake it and replace or make sure it is on properly. steve

Where are the filters on my dyson


I can't be specific without knowing your vacuum cleaners model number.
The filters are in different places on different models. Some models have a primary filter in the dust compartment, some are on the intake of the motor. Some models have an exhaust filter under the dust bin. Some have filters inside the ball assembly.

How to change the filter and wash


It you have the ball. Look on the side and you will see two small cut outs. Just screw it off and you will see the filter also there one on top of the The trash Collector. If you have the older model. Remove the trash collector and pop up the flat base under it. Wash the filters with warm water and let dry for 24 hours.

There is dust coming out the blower of the vacuum. Suggestions?


Check the filter for breaks, cuts, etc. If there are no filter openings, check the exhaust for loose connections, etc.

How do I open Dyson DC7 to clean filter


The only filter you can clean is in the compartment beside the dust bin, push in on the release catch to pull out the filter holder. This filter should be replaced occasionally. There is an exhaust filter under the cover the dust bin sits on. This filter should also be replaced occasionally.

I have a kirby g4 how do i make it blow air (instead of suction) - I already attached the hose and the little attachment with a little ending to fit the inflating opening? thanks


Hi There,

Here's a step by step guide explaining what you have to do to change your Kirby from a vacuum into a blower:


Step 1. Make Sure That Your Kirby is Unplugged from the wall. Remove the front nozzle of the machine by lifting the housing that contains the headlight upwards. Now rotate the belt lifter from the green "Belt On" setting to the red "Belt Off" position:

80876ba.jpg
Step 2. With the belt lifter turned to the red "Belt Off" setting, Turn the knob at the top of the bell shaped agitator housing to release the brush housing from the vacuum:

Step 3. Locate the attachment called the saftey cup that attaches on the Kirby in the exact same place as the brush housing did. This part does two things; Activates the safety switch to the left of the fan, and secondly covers the opening to the fan chamber to prevent anything from getting inside the fan housing and damaging it.

Step 4. Once you install the safety cup it is a good idea to check if the vacuum is working. If it is not (assuming it did work with the nozzle) - check if safety cup switch actuator isn't broken (see picture).

If it works then but it does not when you install the hose (next step) you will know that you did not turn the hose far enough.

Step 5. Take the bag off the Kirby. On the bigger end of the hose there is a line that you have to match with a little bump on the kirby fan housing (marked with red dots). Push the end of the hose over the Kirby exhaust as far as it can go.

Step 6. Turn this hose end clockwise (you may have to apply considerable force).

c0e4dfe.jpg
Step 7. It has to be turned far enough to press another safety switch that is on the unit just behind the exhaust neck.


a8e50c1.jpg
Step 7. You are done and ready to use it as a blower. We would recommend turning it on outside. Hose may have some dust accumulated on the inside and it may blow a lot of dust in the first few seconds of use. Also shake the hose well while outside to loosen any dust/dirt accumulations on the inside.
    Be very careful when blowing dust out of computers or other electronics.
  1. Dirt from inside of the hose may damage components.
  2. Airflow is so strong that it may break circuit boards if they are not well mounted around the perimeter.
  3. Using Kirby a lot of static electricity may be generated that may cause circuit failure due to electrostatic discharge (harmless to people - deadly to electronics).

    30fa7e1.jpg
    NEVER operate blower with the nozzle on. There are 3 important reasons for that:
    1. Kirby is designed to have much higher RPM (Revolutions Per Minute) with the hose or safety cup so it will push more air than with the nozzle.
    2. If you use kirby as a blower with the nozzle - dust and dirt that is in the nozzle from vacuuming carpets and/or rugs will be blown into the air.
    3. If there is nothing (no nozzle no safety cup) Kirby vacuum simply will not turn on.

I really hope that the above instructions were helpful to you in converting your Kirby into a blower. If you have a question on any of the steps, please feel free to use the comment field to ask them, I'm always more then happy to answer any follow up questions you may have.

If this was helpful to you, please be so kind and rate the repair helpful, or by leaving feedback for me. This is really appreciated by the Fixya community when a repair was able to solve your problem.

Thanks again,

It is blowing dust out of the motor


If this is a bagless machine, then the problem is that the really fine dust that you are picking up from your floor is so small that it is going through the filter and dust cup and building up in your vacuum motor. When enough build up collects, then it starts to blow it out the exhaust. I would bet a paper bagged machine for the long run. They are cleaner,

Is their maintenance I need to do on my H702 central Vacumn?


H702 appears to be a Honeywell heavier duty for mid to large floor areas.I have not seen them but internally most Central vacs are VERY similar.
Most central vacs have an exposed filter which should be inspected periodically for damage or cleaning and replacement. A hanging cloth filter is normally fine for 7- 10 years with periodic inspection by the homeowner. Look for tears, never pick up wet stuff. very simple. You can clean a cloth filter prior to inspecting with the round brush from another vac or a soft paint brush.

I found internet reference to an H702 bag but it may be an option for your vac.
Some cv's have an additional or optional paper bag for allergy sufferers or removable cartridge filter which would be visible when removing the dust pail. regardless, the filter protects the motor from damage, periodically inspect when emptying. If dust gets through a damged filter it can leak into and blow a motor. As an cv ages a small degree of fine dust gets in no matter the brand, but most are fine for 10-12 years with no service.

If you see dust in the air exhausting or puffing from the vac, have the unit checked as this indicates dust which has run completely through the motor. If you see a small amount of black dust exhausting along your wall, it is normal from internal brush wear. Turn the vac on and off and listen to the motor as it winds down. If it growls or sounds scratchy or is squealing, that is an indication it needs to be serviced. Clean and inspect you pwer head every 4-6 months and change a smooth drive belt twice a year, broken or not as it will be stretched.

Blows dust out of the exhaust


Take the top off and check to see if your filter is correctly in place. If so check the filter to see if its torn or has any holes in it. If so you will need to replace the filter! :)

Hayden SuperVac central vacuum making an unbelievably loud noise.


Stop using the vac. Remove the filter and clean thoroughly, inspecting for damage. If the vac is spiting out bits off fuzz or lint it may need the motor cleaned and serviced as dirt has leaked past the filter. If it is spewing black, not gray this is carbon dust from the motor brushes. If the noise is scratchy or growling this is a sign of a motor problem as well.
The muffler unless it is a hepa filter/muffler combination is NOT designed to catch dust.
Exhaust dust is a sign of dust leaking through the motor which indicates future moor problems.
HINT, if the guy who installed the muffler didn't secure it right he is probably not a good choice as a service tech either. The muffler is normally clamped or secured in place with a small screw so it can be removed in the event of service.
