    I have the same problem, mine would also spark when I plugged it in. I checked it out and the prong (I think that's the name for it) was loose. Anyone know where I can purchase a new plug to change it myself?

How do I open Dyson DC7 to clean filter


The only filter you can clean is in the compartment beside the dust bin, push in on the release catch to pull out the filter holder. This filter should be replaced occasionally. There is an exhaust filter under the cover the dust bin sits on. This filter should also be replaced occasionally.

Hi, how do I replace the fuse in the dyson dc7?


Other than the fuse in the plug, there is no fuse on a DC07. However, the motor does have a built in over-current trip to protect itself (and you if it seriously overheated and caught fire). This normally automatically resets itself, however if the motor has just about had it, the moment it is switched on, it just trips again.
It cannot be reset manually.

The primary cause of motors overheating is that the filters are not cleaned or replaced frequently enough. Dont be fooled by Dyson's "lifetime filters". They need to be regularly cleaned and replaced when necessary.

Replacement motors are available on eBay for about £25, however replacing one requires good DIY skills and tools.

Have a look at www.dysonmedic.com and see if you feel you can tackle it yourself. If not, take it to a repair shop or call the Dyson helpline.

Dyson 07 plug gets very hot after prolonged vacuuming


Electrical current passes through the electric cord and plug - it will get warm, that's normal. If the problem is worse where you smell an electrical burning smell, only an authorized dealer can fit a new power cord to your vacuum cleaner. Call the Dyson helpline, they will let you know who the closest repair dealer in your area is.
