SOURCE: the dirt is going into the filter

As the air gets sucked through the vacuum cleaner, the dirt is basically thrown out into the container by the spinning air. If the speed that the air is travelling through gets too low, this stops happening and instead it gets sucked through into the filters.

There could be a number of reasons that the air flow has slowed. The most likely is the filters have become blocked over time. Even with regular washing, after 5 years they will not be as efficient as when they were new. I would suggest replacing them (the foam filter and HEPA filter if you have one.)

I would also check that there are no blockages in the main hose, and also give all the component a good banging/brushing to make sure they are nice and clean.

hope this helps,

Matt

SOURCE: Dirt and hairs not going into cylinder

It's not the filter that's the problem.  Air should go first to the cyclones, then to the filter, so the filter catches only those finest dust particles that are not trapped in the cyclones.  The most likely cause of the problem is that the cyclone pack is not properly seated, with the result that at least some of the dirt-bearing air is going directly to the filter rather than passing through the cyclones first.

Hi its Darran at Dyson.

Firstly check that the brush bar control on the cleaner head is in the correct position. You may have switched the brush bar off the last time you used it or the dial may hav got knocked when you vacuumed under some low furniture.

If this is in the correct position but the brush bar is still not turning, switch the machine off and remove the soleplate by turning the 3 fasteners on the base of the machine and checking for blockages and remove any threads or hairs around the brush bar.

I would recommend washing the filter if it hasnt been done for a while.

You may find it useful to follow the blockage procedure and filter washing instructions in your user guide, however if you no longer have this available you download a replacement for free via the support section on our website at www.dyson.com.

I hope that this information is useful to you.

Kind regards

It's probably due to a build-up of dirt/hair around the brush head or a blockage in the suction head just behind the brush (where the hole is smaller and bends slightly before entering the extension tube. Remove the brush from the head of the machine and also the extension tube between the head and the top of the machine and then gently clear the rectangular hole in the brush compartment with something flexible (maybe a piece of wire or a pipe-cleaner) depending on how bad the blockage is. Then remove any hair/strands which may be wrapped around the brush, and any dust in the brush compartment. It may also be a opportune time to wash out the filter which is located just in front of the handle on the upper part of the machine. Leave the filter to dry completely before refitting (in an airing cupboard or near a radiator - may take some hours)

Bissell powertrak revolution dirt not going into cup


If the unit is not blocked between pickup and filter have a good look at the filter to see if air is passing through it---paper throwaway or foam filter the can be washed?

The ones that can be washed etc will have instructions right on them.

Doesn't seem to be sucking up dirt well


Bagless vacuum cleaners leave the bulk dirt in a receiver, but they still rely on a paper air filter to trap fine particles of dust. All the air that the vacuum moves passes through that paper filter. When the filter plugs up, it has to be cleaned or replaced. The bagless "primary filters" are much more expensive than vacuum cleaner bags, but if you can afford to replace it whenever the machine's suction is impeded, its the tidyest solution. You can remove the filter and tap it inside a waste can to dislodge some of the dirt that's plugging it. You can use another vacuum cleaner to clean it somewhat better than just tapping it. (It doesn't have to be *your* other vacuum cleaner, it could be borrowed, at the car wash, etc.) You can use compressed air to almost all of of the dirt plugging it, but you'll want to do it outside somewhere that making a clod of dust is acceptable or at least unnoticed. After a dozen or more cleanings the pores of the paper filter will become too plugged to clean well even with compressed air and it will have to be replaced.

Pet hair, sand and large particulate are least likely to plug these filters. Kitty littler, which is pressed pellets of fine clay, clogs these filters very rapidly. The clay pellets break up into very fine dust as they pass through the vacuum and whirl in the dirt cannister. Avoid vacuuming kitty litter, or any other fine clay into a bagless machine as much as possible.

this is caused by a dirty air filter and/or a blocked vacume hose ( most of the time the blockage is at the bend where the hose enters the floor sweeper area ) ---
remove and tap out and brush the filter ( or use a air compressor to blow out filter ).
then with the vacume on its side - remove the bottom plate ( like you were going to change the belt ) and use a coat hanger and clean out the hose between the floor sweeper and where the suction hoes attaches. this will restore your vacume to full operation.

Loss of suction


I get this all the time with mine. If yours has the same filter set up as mine there is one in the top of the cyclone that is a sponge with a fabric/paper filter as well. The paper filter is always getting bunged up even if it looks clean and I have found that washing it by immersing it in a bowl of white spirit gets the dirt out without destroying the filter( you need to pump it up and down in the bowl to get the white spirit flowing through it). If you have access to an airline you can blow it out as well. There is another "post motor filter" at the bottom of the cyclone and this suffers from the same problem. It is only there to catch dust from the motor itself and I find the easiest way to deal with that one is to throw it away and do without it. Mine is like new when the filters have been cleaned like this.
I would double check that it's not a blockage. I've got a Dyson and they do get blockages in the strangest places.

The other thing to do is to make sure all the pipes etc are attached properly. Sometimes one of the little pipe fittings down by the base of the cleaner gets knocked slightly loose and I have to push it back into place, then it's fine.

If you can't get to the bottom of it, try a google search for the Dyson helpline. I've called them before and they were very helpful.

No air pressure to **** up dirt


First test suction on unit without the hose, is there suction? If yes, attach hose and test. If no go to the door to outside, attach hose to the top of unit where it blows (under handle on top), put hose out door and turn on. The stuff clogging the hose should blow out the end.

If it wasn't the hose check the wand, and then the power nozzle and using the above to clear obstruction.

Cleaning filter on the Dyson Slim


You don't have to clean the HEPA filter (underneath the canister in that clear part) - if you break that clear part you will cause damage to the machine and it won't **** anymore as the air will escape. There is no need to remove it or replace it, it is a lifetime filter. You only have to clean the blue filter that is inside the top of the canister/dirt bin.

Open it up and see if the dirt inlet is clogged. It would be by the brush roll. But you must have a clog.
