SOURCE: On the DC07, the entire cyclone assembly must be

Beofre you go to the extent of buying a replacement canister, you can remove the top and using a straightened coat hanger type thing open that bottom lid. Then maybe you can clean the rim and possibly add some silicone spry to loosen things up. Here's how to get inside In this order: 1) Remove the canister 2) remove the three star screws at the top of the canister. It'll take a bit of pressure to pull the top up, there's a rubber seal. When you pull it up there will be a rod running down into the canister, leave it be, just pull up the top high enough to clear out any debris. 3) Use a straightened coat hanger and with a flashlight to guide you, reach down with it and push it into that hole down at the bottom center of the canister. That will pop the lid open. Clean the canister & lid rims, maybe add some silicone. At this point you might as well clean the canister too. OPTIONAL-> ***leave the bottom lid open*** and follow the rest of these steps 4) Put the top back on aligning the screws, when you lower it make sure the bottom of the rod engages with the hole at the bottom center of the canister, this is why you left the bottom lid open. Put the three star screws back in. 4) Turn the canister upside down, lid open, and keeping in mind this is thin plastic, gently tug upwards on the four fins that surround the bottom rubber seal. This part is held in by friction, so work your way around the four fins gently pulling until you work the ring they're connected to free. This will give you access to the inside of the canister. 5) remove the round perforated section by tugging upwards on it, set it aside with the fin part. 6) Take the canister to a laundry tub or large sink and holding it bottom up fill it with hot/warm water. Grasping the center section shake it vigorously and turn it upside down while shaking and a bunch of sh*t will come out. Repeat several times. 7) Dry thoroughly, you might use a hairdryer held to the center tube, but only if you can switch off the heat and use air only. Make sure its 200% dry, water will kill your machine 8) clean and replace the round perforated section 9) replace the fin section, I'd suggest pulling the round rubber part off of the fin part and setting it in place on the canister first, then follow with the plastic fin part. If you don't do it this way the rubber won't seat properly and the bottom lid won't close. 10) Close the lid, replace the canister, and staaaaaart suckin like it's brand new.

take out the three screws on the to near the handle inside you will find the remains of the old part you can either replace the old part from the top and put it back together to open it normally or you can use the old release stick to push down the catch at the bottom if you decide to replace the part make sure the release stick is in the centre through the 2 holes its very tricky

SOURCE: Dyson DC07 Clear Bin Flap will not release

I just received my replacement root cyclone in the mail today after waiting in the back-ordered status for three months. I positioned a butter knife in between the rubber gasket on the bottom flap lid and the bottom rim of the clear bin at the farthest point from the hinge and slowly and gently wiggled the knife between until the bottom flap just fell open. I examined the rubber gasket and it survived without injury and the bottom flap seals without any gaps...good luck

    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.

    shroud-dc59-full-dust-any-way-cleaning-y55pbet4r2t5yihta4k1snnu-3-2.jpg

    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 dismantle my Dyson DC58 to clean all filter etc


    Hi David, it's Jack at Dyson.

    We'd advise against dismantling DC58 any further than is shown in the User guide. This could cause damage to your machine not covered under guarantee - meaning any replacement parts needed could be chargeable. However, you can wash the lifetime pre-filter following the steps shown in the video below:

    We recommend washing the filter at least once a month, using cold water without detergent. Make sure the filter is totally dry before replacing it, which could take at least 24 hours.

    To clean any fluff or debris from the mesh shroud, press the red bin base release catch once to open the bin base. Then with the base still open, press the same red catch firmly a second time:

    dismantle-dyson-dc58-clean-all-filter-m43difmpidfjgfho0k5c5fgh-2-0.jpg

    You can use a dry cloth or a soft brush to remove any debris from the mesh shroud.

    It's normal for harmless static to cause fine dust particles to cling to parts of the bin, cyclone pack and behind the mesh shroud. This dust will not affect performance as the airflow doesn't need to pass through this. You should find tapping the cyclone pack gently when emptying the machine will help dislodge any clinging particles.

    I hope this helps, but for further advice you can call our experts directly on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

    How do I clean a build up of dust behind the mesh on the cyclone shroud of my dyson dc59?


    Hi William, it's Jack at Dyson.

    It's normal for harmless static generated in use to cause fine dust particles to cling to parts of the clear bin and cyclone pack. This will not affect performance as airflow doesn't have to pass through this dust, and it's not necessary to remove dust particles from behind the mesh shroud. When you empty the machine after use, tapping the cyclone pack gently will help dislodge any clinging particles.

    You can remove any fluff or debris from the mesh shroud itself by removing the clear bin. To do this, press the red bin release catch once as if you were emptying the machine. Then with the bin base still open, press the red release catch firmly a second time to disengage the clear bin.

    25260487-pkv2cgujyifqzetveq41ao5v-5-0.jpg

    A soft brush or a dry cloth can then be used to remove any hair or debris from the shroud.

    Aside from this, the only other maintenance needed is to wash the pre-filter at least once a month using cold water without detergent:


    Always ensure the filter is completely dry before replacing it in the machine - this may take at least 24 hours.

    I hope this helps, but if any further guidance is needed you're welcome to give our experts a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

    How ldo I open the Dyson DC07 bin to clean the mess out


    Empty the bin in the usual way. Leaving the bottom door open, raise the small catch on the front of the bin, towards the top. Pull the front of the bin down when this catch is held open and the clear bin will disengage from the top lug at the back. The whole clear outer bin them can be removed dowards to enable the cyclonic air wholes to be totally cleaned.
    This is for the DC07 all floors but I asume all DC07s to be the same.

    My dyson dc07 seems to take awhile to build proper suction... is this normal?


    no it should pick up as soon as you turn it on, make sure the brush is turning if it is then turn the unit off, make sure the the washable filter is clean and the the bin filter is also clean, if this does not work then there one more thing if you can try, remove the bin from the unit release the bin flap and with a torch look down the end of the cyclone you might find a large blockage this vry common in the dc07 hope this helps
