How to replace dust bin lid

While emptying, the flap/lid on the bottom came off.
It doesn't appear to be broken ... just can't get the plastic nubs to fit into the hinge so it will open and close.

I don't want to force it... it is plastic... but the must be a way that it can slip in?

With the lid you need to force it on a little bit its tough plastic but dont force too much.

Removing with out breaking is harder. why do you need it off?

Dyson dc07 clear dust bin will not close after emptying. Any time the bin is removed, the dirt falls out.


There is a lever that has a hook on the end that holds the door in the bottom of the dirt cup closed. If the little plastic hook gets broken the trap door will not stay closed by itself. The easiest way to fix this is to purchase a new dust bin. I have a bunch of them in my vacuum graveyard. You may call my store at 260 244-4696.

I have a Dyson DC07 upright vacuum I emptied the cylinder and the bottom lid fell off not sure how to reattach in case it breaks - any clues?


It has two little pegs that hold it onto the perspex cylinder. Really, it shouldn't fall off during normal use. Check one of the little pegs hasn't broken off. If it has, you need to replace the bin flap. If the pegs are OK, check the two mounting holes on the perspex cylinder. If you need to replace either, you can get them from here: http://manchestervacs.co.uk/Dyson/DC07-spares.html as Dyson will not sell you cylinder components but those guys will.

I have a dyson dc07 bagless vacuum cleaner. How do I split the top and bottom halves of the dust collection bin? There is a lever and catch on the side, I have tried pulling and turning, but with no...


Hi at the top of the Cyclone there is a lever underneath the Handle. The Handle I am referring to says Dyson on it. Firstly you must release the Cyclone from the spine. After doing this you will be left with the Cyclone and the Cyclone Bin all in a oner.

To empty the bin you must lift the lever which is underneath the Dyson handle.

You can only seperate the bin from the cyclone whilst the bin flap is open.

Once you have opened the bin flap using the lever you can then use the lever and catch to seperate the 2 items.

On the DC07, the entire cyclone assembly must be removed to empty the dust, debris, etc. collected when vacuuming. On the top of the cyclone is a "trigger" that you lift with your finger to release the...


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.

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

Poor Suction


I recently bought a second hand Dyson DC07. Its suction was poor. I removed all the un-clipable pipe bits and to remove any blockage but it all looked clear. The Final Sponge and hepper filter did have a lot of dust in it and the rotating brush was full of hair but nothing bad.

I eventual gave in to curiosity and removed the three screws in the top or the yellow removable dust collection tube and cyclone bit to see what was in there. The mechanism to release the flap at the bottom of the collection tube does not allow you to remove the lid completely but it does open far enough to get inside. I found the whole top section of the yellow plastic bit blocked by a big plug of compacted dust and a champagne cork. If you are willing to take the risk and have a torx 15 screwdriver handy it that part may be blocked. It did get a bit messy.

If I was going to attempt the same procedure I'd remove the dust collection unit from the vacuum cleaner as I did before, but leave the clear tube attached and the emptying flap firmly closed to reduce the mess from the dust falling out the bottom while cleaning the top part.

Broken dust bin


You must replace the whole bin. Not sure where you can get it but if you take it in it for repair it will cost roughly 50-60 for the part plus labor.

Bottom of dirt container doesn't stay closed


The catch/latch that is on the bottom of the bin button release has likely broken.  
If you take out the canister (as when you are dumping the bin), and flip it upside down and then squeeze the bin release button, you will see that it moves a rod inside the cyclone assembly.  At the end of this rod is a plastic (plastic.. redundant, as the entire Dyson is practically plastic) latch that catches onto the bin's lid and locks it in place.  A broken latch means it doesn't lock the lid in.
What you need is a replacement latch.  Note that the "Bin Release Button + Rod assembly" that are sometimes sold on ebay do *not* contain the latch at the end of the rod.  Also the bottom bin assembly does not contain the required parts.
The cyclone assembly should have the full bin release rod + latch, so if you can't find the latch, then a new cyclone assembly would work also (but will cost more, obviously).

Sebo felix upright


Hey Debs
Ive got a Sebo Felix. Unfold the bag (if its folded) and drop it into the top of the bin. Once you've aligned the plastic parts the two nibs which are pointing outwards towards the handle, make sure the plastic collar is sitting on the rest of the surround.

Now the most important aspect is the plastic flap - not the dust cap - but if standing behind the Felix, there is a green flap on the left hand side of the bag which must be pushed down over the spring (looks like a large staple). Once that is folded over and locked in, the lid should close. If the lid still doesn't close check that the top hose fitting has been securely locked and is dust free. Dont forget to rate, ty.
