Question about Dyson Vacuums

Open Question

In attempting to use the tools facility on my Dyson DC27 Animal vacuum cleaner the extending tube failed to fully extend as normal and required quite an effort to get as far as it did. I eventually managed to get into the release mechanism to allow the arm to fully extend as expected and allow access to releasing and reconnecting the flexible hose and the main handle. I discovered a small (1/2" x 1/4" approx) spring within and a loose plastic collar. After a few attempts to re-use the spring by setting it onto a small nipple on the said collar without 100% success, in clicking the whole apparatus back together the spring has re-emerged and I cannot release the handle from its fixed position even though the extender now seems fine. Can you guide me into how to release this handle and also where to put the spring when I reassemble. Is there a schematic diagram available for me to view. I am obliged. Alan Powell

SOURCE: fitting a new control switch for the fan oven (model number 10450G)

Sesspod, 2 things... 1.) Pull the oven out and look on the back of it, there may be an envelope back there containing a technical data sheet which includes a wiring diagram. If not on the back, then possibly under the cook top. It is somewhere on your oven, sometimes the hard part is locating it. If you can find it, look closely and you'll see the wiring color and location is labeled. 2.) If you can't locate the tech data sheet, can you post a good macro picture of the back of your new switch so we can see what you're dealing with.

SOURCE: RE: f5 fault code; kdrp407hss

Solution!!! The hinges that Kitchen Aid uses are the problem. If the door is opened quickly & bottoms out, the steel in the hinge bends a little. So when you go to close the door it won't close all the way.... which causes problems with the latch , latch switch, oven cleaning, etc.

After taking apart the door several times I realized the hinge can be "fixed" without even removing the door. Follow the directions in the user manual for door removal... after inserting the little metal hinge stops (a drill bit or nail will work) Close the oven door till the stops won't allow it to close any further.....then gently but firmly, push forward. This will bend the hinge back to original shape. Remove the pins...Voila!!!

I wish kitchenaid used hardened steel or a thicker hinge....then this wouldn't happen.

SOURCE: How do I calibrate the oven temp?

Oven Temperature Adjustment Option for the MSG5770
If you think the oven should be hotter or cooler, you can adjust
it yourself. To decide how much to change the oven temperature,
set the temperature 25°F higher or lower than the temperature
in your recipe, then bake. The results of the “test” should
give you an idea of how much to adjust the temperature.
To adjust the oven temperature:
1. Press the BAKE pad.
2. Enter 550° by pressing the number pads “5, 5, 0”.
3. Press and hold the BAKE pad for several seconds until 0°
appears in the display.
4. Press any number pad to change the temperature. Each time
a pad is pressed, the temperature changes by 5°F.
• Press repeatedly to reach +35°F. Continue pressing
to reduce the temperature up to -35°F.
• If the oven temperature was previously adjusted, the
change will be displayed. For example, if the oven
temperature was reduced by 15°, the display will
show -15°.
5. When you have made the adjustment, press the
CANCEL pad and the time of day will reappear in the
display. The oven will now bake at the adjusted
temperature.
NOTE: Do not change the temperature setting more than
10° at a time before testing the oven.
It is not necessary to readjust the oven temperature if there
is a power interruption. This adjustment will not affect
broil or clean temperatures.

SOURCE: Lens jams when extending or retracting

This is either due to a cracked internal roller or a cracked/broken internal cam. The lens will have to be sent to Tamron for repair.

Wand will not pull out


Hi Colin, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC27's wand should release from the machine easily, and disengage from the body of the machine when it's fully extended. If it seems to be jammed in place, it's possible there's a blockage within the hose which is preventing it from extending.

To resolve this, open the clear U-bend and check for any obstructions.

This should help, but if you continue to have difficulty you're welcome to get in touch with the Dyson Customer Helpline for further assistance from our experts. We can help you check if the mechanism for the wand is damaged - and if a replacement part is needed, we can confirm whether your machine is covered under the Dyson warranty.

You can reach the Dyson Customer Helpline by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

How to clean filters for dyson vacuum cleaner


Hi Seema, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC27 Total Clean has two filters, engineered to last the lifetime of the machine in normal use. These should be washed at least once every 3 months using cold water without detergent, as shown in the video below. Allow at least 24 hours for both filters to dry completely before replacing them.

I hope this helps, but if you'd like any further guidance you're welcome to contact us directly by calling 1-866-693-9766 (US), or 1-877-397-6622 (CA).

MY DYSON DC27 TOTAL CLEAN VACUUM CLEANER HAS AIR BLOWING FROM AROUND THE BOTTOM OF THE DIRT BIN. IS THIS NORMAL


Hi Pamela, it's Jack at Dyson.

Underneath the clear bin is the exhaust outlet, where clean, filtered air is returned to the room after passing through the machine. This is totally normal and part of the machine's design.

I hope this clears things up, but if you do have any further questions please email askdysonUS@dyson.com with your contact details, and one of our experts will be in touch as soon as possible. You can also find help online by visiting www.dyson.com/support

I just received a DC 28 animal vacuum and I cannot pull the extension wand out. I see the button to make the wand go up out of the hose, but I cannot figure out how to release the handle from the vacuum. ...


Hi there,

The Quick-draw Telescope Reach wand on your DC28 is designed to detatch from the cleaner automatically when you extend the wand to it's fullest extent. When you replace the wand on the cleaner, the wand will retract automatically down inside the hose. The button on the rear of the wand which you mention will separate the end of the hose from the wand, so you can use the hose without the wand attached when cleaning in tighter spaces. You do not need to press this to extend or retract the wand.

If you have any further questions about using or maintaining your Dyson, please see the user guide supplied with the cleaner, or visit www.dyson.com and click on 'Support. If you'd prefer to speak to one of our experts directly, you can call us free on 1866MYDYSON.

Kind regards,

Jack
