Question about Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
Is it normal to have to clean the round filter that sits under the cylclone about everytime that I use it? It seems to clog with very fine dust and really limits the suction.
The Flange in question is about one inch tall and and approx 4 inches circular ..... When you pull the canister (container to empty) off and empty the contents in the trash .... some of us tap it to get the excess out or off the sides ..... That Flange is the rubber piece attached to the bottom of the darker gray cylinder inside the canister you are emptying. When you tap the canister or after dumping it numerous times that flange can work itself (slide) up the darker gray cylinder ...... it needs to be slid downward and overlap the bottom when you close the canister from dumping it. You can remove the flange and see the grooves .... replace it back on with it hanging off a little to allow for overlap. That should decrease the amount of excess being trapped in the filter. Hope this helps.
