Changing the HEPA filter on a DC17 Animal

\015 DC17 Animal Filters\015

Answers :

Just took my Dyson in and yes my HEPA needed changing. It's under the right wheel (as you're looking at the machine); you can see it through the "vents" above the wheel. The screw is on the bottom of machine.

\015\012You will probably need a Torx (star) 15 screwdriver -- that's what Dyson seems to use everywhere.
There are two filters in the DC17, the washable one and the Hepa filter. They say it is a lifetime filter, not. My vacuum is 2 years old and I was told by the authorized repair dealer you need to change it once a year. He said you could burn the motor if not, it runs about $40.00 plus labor if you can not figure how to change, which the manual does not mention.

I have a Miele S5980 vacuum cleaner, and recently had to change the Hepa filter. After doing the change, I tried resetting the reset button to switch off the Hepa filter indication light and it would not switch off. After a few tries, I accidentally depressed the switch, and it has dislodged from its cradle. Help, what can I do to fix this?

My electrolux oxygen cannister has the "bag change" light on when there is a new bag. The light stays on when the suction power is high (to pick up small particles) and it won't pick up, but the ight goes off when the suction power is low (to pick up big objects). I changed the hepa filter, cleaned the motor filter and changed bags, but all that didn't help.


You may have a clog in the hose, and/or the inlet by the brush roll. A clog will turn on that light as well as a full bag. ... Vacuums

Our problem with our Rainbow E Series is that it has sucked water up and blown it out through the lower part of the hepa filter, making the filter wet and dirty. This had happened before and the repair shop did not see any problems with the machine, so we replaced the filter and were very carful not to overfill the tank and to change the water often. Now it has happened again and ruined another filter. Do you know what could be causing this issue? Can the filter be cleaned or will a new one be

I have a Miele Vacuum cleaner MedicAir 5000 Plus. Recently the Dust Bag Indicator bar is full during normal cleaning and consequently the suction power is much less.

We have two of these vacuums and both of them have experienced the same problems. First the floor heighth adjustment doesn't work and now neither one will pick up on either carpet or floor when in the brush/floor mode. They both seem to work with the suction hose function. We have removed the back panel to see if there was an obstruction but it was clear. We have changed the bag and the small filter (not the HEPA filter) all to no avail. What else can we do? We are desperate to use our vacu

I have a Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum and it lost suction. How do I get it fixed? Also, is it possible to get a second filter for this machine?
