    Yes, somewhat helpful in that the unit did not come with a manual. However, I don't think they really constructed the unit with the consumer in mind as regards the ease with which disassembly can be carried out--perhaps on purpose??

The holes on my dyson dc07i are dirty and smell how can i get them clean does the part with root cyclone on it come apart


Hi Susan,

We'd strongly advise against attempting to disassemble the cyclone pack, as this is likely to snap the internal bin-base release rod, and can also reduce the performance of your machine.

If you're concerned about the smell from your machine, I'd encourage you to get in touch with us directly, by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US). One of our advisors will be happy to run through some troubleshooting checks to make sure the smell is coming from the cyclone pack. They'll also be able to offer advice on the best way to resolve this issue without damaging your machine.

We'll look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,

Jack

My change floor setting on/off button blinks and it is really hard to push but it doesnt **** up like it use to either.


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your Dyson cleaner. From your description, it sounds as if you have a DC28 Animal, rather than a DC17 Animal. If the cleaner seems hard to push, and an indicator light is flashing, you may have the brushbar set to a level too low for the carpet you're trying to clean. Try raising the brushbar to the next height available on the selector pad.

If you need any further assistance with your Dyson, please get in touch with us directly - you can call us free on 1866MYDYSON.

Kind regards,

I have a blockage in the wand and don't know how to remove it. No suction


Disassemble Your Dyson Animal so you can access the area around the wand. If the block is in the wand itself, you can clear it by passing something through it (such as a broom or mop handle).

Blocks in other piping and outlets can be removed by hand.

Beauty of the Dyson Animal line is that a homeowner can find and fix problems easily.

Have a look at www.dysonmedic.com which has some very useful info on dismantling and repairing Dysons.

Although this site doesnt actually cover the DC14 yet, the DC14 is very similar to the DC07 so as regards dissassembling the machine, and replacing the clutch, my experience is that the DC07 info will enable you to do the job.

There are 4 (I believe only 4) screws with a "star driver" head on them inside the bottom of the unit (two are flush mounted and two are recessed about 1/4" inside a hole) that can be removed to allow access to the interior to remove pet hair etc.  However, only two are easily accessible and require a long star driver.  The other two would require a tool that has a flexible neck on it that would still allow you to use the star bit as they are located near the larger holes you can see inside the bottom of the canister.
