Hi Brenda,
You may want to use compressed air to blow out any accumulated dust or hair that may have accumulated in your cyclone. We do not recommend using water to clean your cyclone.
You may also need to wash your filter. Your washable pre-filter is located in the top portion of your cyclone. It is made up of two parts, a plastic frame and a blue sponge. Please separate these pieces and rinse them thoroughly with cold water only, no soap or detergent, and allow them to dry completely before returning them to the machine.
If the steps above do not remove the odor please contact our Helpline, 1-866-693-9766 US or 0800 298 0298 UK, so we can provide further assistance.
Best wishes,
