Make sure your gasket at the bottom is sealing correctly. This can cause lots to get by the cyclones and fill up your filter. You could take your Cyclone apart and clean it. Here's a video how to do that. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2OO3ugkyzxk

When i am vacumming i can nly do 1 room at a time because th dyson d40 shuts off, comes back after about 15 mins, then shuts off after every room.


Hi Fran, it's Jack at Dyson.

Like most Dyson vacuums, DC40 will shut off for protection if it starts to overheat. This will often be due to a blockage - the filters may also need a wash. The machine should reset itself automatically after it's had time to cool down - however, please follow the steps below to prevent this from reoccurring.

To check for blockages, please follow each of the checkpoints shown in our online Support guides: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc40/dc40-animal-tft/maintaining-your-dyson-machine/removing-blockages-from-the-main-body

http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc40/dc40-animal-tft/maintaining-your-dyson-machine/removing-blockages-from-the-wand-and-hose

In normal use, both filters should be washed at least once a month using cold water without detergent. Allow at least 24 hours for both filters to dry completely before replacing them in the machine:


I'm confident removing any blockages and washing both filters will resolve the issue. However, Dyson experts are on hand to help, and you're welcome to get in touch directly if you'd like any further assistance.

I can't get the filter to stay in after cleaning


Hi Patty, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC59 Motorhead's pre-filter is engineered to easy to remove for its monthly wash, but should also stay in place securely once it's replaced. In use, the filter will be held in place by the vacuum's powerful suction. When carrying the vacuum from room to room, we'd recommend keeping the machine horizontal, and to avoid carrying it upside down or vertically. It's also worth checking that the black rubber seal itself is clean and correctly positioned.

If the issue continues, I would encourage you to contact our experts directly so we can provide further assistance. You can reach us by calling 1-866-693-9766 (US) or 1-877-397-6622 (CA).

Will not turn on


This is often caused by overheating and overheating is often caused by blocked filters. Wash the filters and let them dry naturally (do not put back in the machine until they are fully dry). The machine may work once it has been allowed to cool down properly. Also check the fuse in the machine's plug.

Trigger switch cuts off during use


make sure the filter is washed thoroughly. I have/had the same problem and washing the filter helps a lot - it cuts off if overheating....and avoid picking up really fine dust like after drilling picture hook holes...

DC16 charger output 28VDC Battery 23.6VDC only runs 1-3 sec what is wrong


Hi Rene,


I am sorry to hear that your DC16 handheld seems to have a short runtime.


This issue is generally the result of the filters needing to be washed or not being seated properly in the machine. If the machine is being used regularly, the filters should be washed monthly otherwise it will impact the performance of the machine.


To inspect the filters follow the steps below:


Remove the canister and separate the nozzle from the main body of the machine by pressing the silver button on the top of the machine.


Remove the pre-filter.


There are two portions to the washable pre-filter a blue sponge and a white scrim that has blue plastic.


In the lower right hand corner of the blue plastic is a small silver disc. Opposite of the small silver disc is a hole that should slip onto a molded plastic post in the main body of the machine.



While holding the handle of the machine in your right hand locate and lift up on the small "lip" on the left-hand side of the main body where the vents are.



The rectangular blue sponge is your post motor filter.


These filters should be washed once a month in cold water (no soap) and left to dry at room temperature for 24 hours or more.


If any gray is visible on any part of the filters they need to be washed.


When replacing the pre-filter into the machine it is important that the blue sponge face away from the motor and the small silver disc on the white portion be positioned in the lower corner of the main body.


If the steps above do not fully resolve the problem, please call us directly at 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1-866-693-9766 (US).


Best wishes,

Jessica

Dyson animal is giving me fits


Hi,

Try this quick repair and see if this fixes your Dyson in terms of not going in the upright position: This is a frequent problem that we see come in on Dysons. If this doesn't fix it, please feel free to just use the clarification request and let me know this didn't fix it. The suction problem is happening because when the machine is put in the upright position it diverts the suction from the floor to the hose automatically, and it's probably stuck in between the lower part and the hose part.

Step 1.
Turn power off and unplug the machine.
Tilt the machine backward to a 45° angle.

Step 2.
  • Hold the section under the airway inspection pipe.
  • The black forward lock button must be held down simultaneously, otherwise the valve carriage will not move.
  • Pivot this section upwards until it clicks into place.
  • Release the black button once the valve pipe carriage is moved up into place.

    Step 3.

    • Tilt the machine forward.
    • The cleaner head should now slide underneath the part you have just clicked into place.
    • The machine should now stand upright.

    In terms of the machine not picking up, this could be caused by a few things.

    The first thing you should check is the filter. The DC14 has a motor filter that is recommended to be washed every 90 days. Here's how to access this filter:

    • To remove the washable filter: Remove the clear bin; and cyclone top from your machine by pressing the cyclone release button.
    dc14_cyclone_removal_01.gif
    • Lift clip to remove the filter from the machine.*
    dc14_filter_removal_01.gif dc14_filter_removal_02.gif
    *The post-motor filter located under the clear bin should last the lifetime of the machine and does not need to be washed.

    There are two different types of filters that were used on the Dyson DC14, and One part filter, and a two part filter. Here's instructions on how to clean both of them:

    ONE PART FILTER:
    • Wash the filter in cold water only. (Please do not use detergent, do not wash in a dishwasher or washing machine).
    • Repeat the steps shown below until the water runs clear.

    • Wash the filter in cold water only. (Please do not use detergent, do not wash in a dishwasher or washing machine).
    • Repeat the steps shown below until the water runs clear.
    filter_wash.gif filter_clean_squeeze.gif
    • Wash the filter in cold water only. (Please do not use detergent, do not wash in a dishwasher or washing machine).
    • Repeat the steps shown below until the water runs clear.
    filter_wash.gif filter_clean_squeeze.giffilter_1.jpg
    • Wash the filter in cold water only. (Please do not use detergent, do not wash in a dishwasher or washing machine).
    • Repeat the steps shown below until the water runs clear.
    filter_wash.gif filter_clean_squeeze.gif

    • Leave to dry in a warm place for 24 hours. DO NOT dry the filter inside a clothing dryer, hair dryer, microwave the filter, place the filter in an oven, or near a naked flame.
    • Please ensure the filter and filter case are completely dry before refitting into the machine.
    1_part_filter_drying.jpg TWO PART FILTER:
    filter_2.jpg
    • Wash the filter in cold water only. Please DO NOT use detergent on the filter, or wash the filter in a dishwasher or in a washing machine.
    • Repeat the steps shown below until the water runs clear.
    • Leave the filter to dry in a warm place for 12 hours, until completely dry.
    • DO NOT dry the filter inside a clothing dryer, hair dryer, microwave the filter, place the filter in an oven, or near a naked flame.
    dc14_filter_01.gif dc14_filter_05.gif dc14_filter_06.gif
    The filter should be washed at least once every 6 months.

    Also, since you have removed the bottom plate, a common problem on the Dyson's is when this plate is reinstalled. It is very easy to put the plate on incorrectly, which prevents the brushes from hitting the carpeting. This can seriously decrease the pick up on carpets. Check the bottom plate to make sure that it was put back on properly. Here's pictures of both the correct, and incorrect way to reinstall the bottom plate:

    Here's a picture of the WRONG way to install the bottom plate. Notice the gap in between the two housings:


    9739790.jpg
    Here's another picture, that is the RIGHT way to install the soleplate:


    8b953d0.jpg
    I would say probably 6 times out of 10 this is the problem with the customers machine. If you checked the soleplate and it is installed correctly, move on to the second possible problem.



    I hope that this was helpful to you. Please feel free to use the Clarification Request form here on Fixya if you have any questions.

    Thank you,

So, if anything causes it to overheat, it will switch off. If this happens, leave the cleaner switched off for at least two hours, as it will not start again until it has cooled down.

    The most common cause of a cut-out is that the cleaner has a blockage or the filter needs washing. A high room temperature may also trigger it. Before you continue vacuuming, ensure the filter is clean and there are no blockages. You can download the user guide at www.dyson.co.uk/support/.

    HOW DO YOU WASH THE JC0280-000 FILTER SAFELY? IT'S FROM A BAGLESS VACUUM. THANKS


    The easiest way to wash this is to put it in lukewarm / to the touch warm tap water in a basin and drop in some washing up liquid/dish liquid as this is one of the more gentler cleaning agents you can use. Leave it for a few hours without doing anything. Rather than use a brush which can tear the paper pleats/folds, inspect the filter to see if it has been rid of dust then use your fingers to gently widen the pleats to ensure all the dirt is gone.

    Sadly for this type of filter it is near impossible to get it looking white again. However in lieu of letting it room dry for 24 hours (sometimes the JC0208-000 can take up to three days until it is bone dry)
    Slip the filter into a pillow case and put into an electric tumble dryer. Select a low heat and check every 30 mins to see if the filter has dried.

    Dont forget to rate this, thanks.

    You didn't state brand and model number. Some of these filters can be washed, make sure it is dry before putting it back on. If it is a year or more old, then replace it. Call around to your local repair shops to see they would have a replacement filter.
