It sounds as if this is the piece desinged to scrape lint from the screen on the filter cartridge holder. There should be two slots near the top of the dirt cup, about in the middle, that this piece snaps into, with the pegs facing the filter.

I just bought a DC 44 Animal and the power/on switch will not continuously stay on unless I am pressing it.


This one is so easy! Well, relatively. First, make sure the vacuum is unplugged. Turn it over and you will see that on the rollers a cover. This cover should have about 4 screws holding it on. Unscrew and remove the cover. Note how it was put on. Take a look at the roller brush ends where it goes into the sides of the vacuum. Pull the roller straight out, noting how the pegs that hold it into the vacuum are situated. Take the broken belt off. It might be attached to one side of the roller. Note which side it is on and which side of the vacuum it is on. If it's not attached, no problem, just note which side it should be on. Now, on the bottom where the belt goes around, should be a silver peg that the belt slides over. Sometimes it's hard to see, but it's there. Take the broken belt to the store and match it up to a new one. Some are thinner than others, smaller or rounder than others. Be sure to get the right one. Now, back home, comes the hard part. Put the new belt on the proper side of the roller, only. Try and get the roller back into the vacuum snugly and secure, that's the hard part. Once you do that, holding the roller with one hand, snug against the vacuum, pull the belt down and slide it onto that silver peg. If it needs to be twisted on, do that, but it probably doesn't need to be twisted. Those are mostly older Hoovers. Once you have it on the peg, move the roller around with your hand to settle the belt into the proper position. Don't get upset if the roller pops off, it does that on occasion. Just put it back on and put the belt back on the peg and the rest. Mumbling helps:) With that done, replace the roller cover and you're done, Bob's your uncle! Plug the vacuum in and have at it. Oh yeah, change the bag or empty the bin if necessary so you have a clean start.

I removed the bottom medal plate, covering the brush, and there were 3 additional pieces that fell out - 2 clear and 1 darker gray (aprox 2" H and 1.5" W). I can not figure out where this last piece goes...


I've never seen a Dyson with a "medal". For that matter, I've never seen a Dyson with any metal parts either, except the screws.
You should take it to a qualified vacuum repair shop to make sure the parts aren't necessary before running it again, just in case.

Dyson canister won't fit snugly


Hi there,


I am sorry to hear your canister is not fitting properly. You may want to separate your cyclone assembly (the top purple portion of your canister) from the clear bin and reattach the components to ensure they are fitted together properly.



To do this, open the bottom of the clear bin, as if you were emptying it. Please be sure the bin is positioned over a trash receptacle in the event there is debris in the bin. Once the bottom of the bin is open please look at the back of your canister. Below the purple top of the canister and to the left of the debris inlet is a clear plastic loop that you can slip your index finger through. Just above this loop is a gray release catch . Using your thumb, press down on the gray release mechanism. At this point you should be able to gently pull the clear bin away from the cyclone assembly. After separating the pieces, briefly inspect them to confirm they are not damaged. If there is no obvious damage, close the base of the clear bin and place the bin on a hard flat surface. Next, carefully lower the cyclone assembly onto the clear bin. It may be helpful to use the red plastic piece on the back of your cyclone assembly and clear bin to line the pieces up correctly. You will hear a slight click once the pieces have been successfully reattached.



Please attempt to return the canister to the machine. If you are still not able to attach the canister successfully, please call us so we can provide further assistance. We can be reached at 1-866-693-9766 (US), 0800 298 0298 (UK), and 01-475-7109 (IE).




Best wishes,


Jessica

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 believe I have a short in the wand of my sebo. How can I fix it or how much is a new wand ?


The short could be in the wand, the hose handle or the power head neck, sometimes it's tricky to distinguish and sometimes you will replace two mating electrical components. You should take all to a SEBO dealer for diagnoses unless you are certain it's isolated as a wand issue.
Either way, take your wand to a Dealer and ask if the internal cord is replaceable.
Sebo parts will normally be found only at a SEBO warranty or sales center . Its a great product

Same problem removing the easy empty cup..


The dark gray plastic slide is separate from the Easy Empty Cup. Just slide the release tab all the way to open position, and then pull the Easy Empty Cup straight up. With a little effort, the cup will dislodge from the dark gray plastic platter.

Release spring popped off when dumping the cannister.


As long as the black piece still has the "nubs" on both sides at the turn in the "L" shape and the base isn't broke then this is going to be easy. There is a groove on the main unit the little wheel fits into that groove, the "nubs" fit into small holes on the swivel down piece, and the spring fits between the small side of the "L" shape and the bottom of the swivel down piece.

Round filter clogs often


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.
