Yea I can definitely help you. On the tope of the cyclone there are three screws that will allow you to take off the top off the cyclone. You should see a long black rod going down the middle of the cylcone. It is difficult and you may have to detach it from the top i cant remember as usually i just replace the whole thing and only done that 3 times. You take a flash light and you can see where the rod goes in and just push it down and it should pop open. ill check back on monday to see if you replied or need more help.

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.

SOURCE: 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

The closing mechanism on my dyson dc59 comes open when I touch it. It only has one red closure tab is it suppose to have two


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC59's bin base is engineered to open when you press down on the red release catch, as shown in our Getting started guide:


The bin base should shut securely after you've emptied the bin. If you're concerned it's not staying closed, we'd appreciate the opportunity to help you check everything is correct with your machine. If a replacement part is needed, we can also confirm if this is covered under our 2-year cordless guarantee.

When you have your machine easily to hand, please call our experts directly on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU) so we can help.

How do I line up centre rod on dco7 when flap is closed


Hi.

I assume you have unscrewed the handle from tje cyclone whilst the bin is still attached. Its a common mistake to make. There is no wY that you can open that flap without the rod.

Next time ensure you take the bin off first.

Right, the only way you can get the flap open is to use the rod.

Unscrew thevrod from the handle and then hold the rod above the cyclone and insert the rod into the cyclone lining it up with the catch at the bottom. once its in pree the button and flap will open. Whilst pressing the button use your other hand to lift the cyclone off the ground so the flap will have space to open.

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.

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.
