Having problems with your Dyson DCO7 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?

The base of the clear bin won't open.

\015 I decided to give our dyson dc07 a thorough cleaning since we continually have a strong dog odor when vacuuming. I removed the cyclone unit from the machine and then removed the clear bin unit.\015\012\015\012I cleaned the pre-motor filter and then removed the top of the cylcone unit and cleaned it as well. I then replaced the filter (after it had thoroughly dryed) and reattached the top unit to the cyclone.\015\012\015\012The trigger that opened the clear bin base no longer works. Actually it works but the base won't swing open. I've opend and reattached the top numerous time now and am puzzled as to why it base won't open since the rod attached to the top looks like it is designed to fit into the slot in the cyclone unit.\015

Just had the same problem. Finally realised what to do. Pull the long rod away from the top against its spring (by the rubber gaiter) and whilst holding it, undo the screw holding the long rod to the top trigger mechanism. Now you can wiggle the rod part free (careful of the plastic lug on the side opposite the screw). Now, you can look down through the cyclone whilst inserting the rod properly into the releaser at the bottom and open the base. Reassemble the rod into the top. NOW reinsert it into the cyclone with the base door OPEN and using two fingers locate the rod into the releaser lever. Now you can close the door. Phew. Hope this is clear enough as a guide.
I have a Dyson and so do many of my friends. Usually a call to their 800 number will give an assist, or a new part, sometimes for free.

On the DC07, the entire cyclone assembly must be removed to empty the dust, debris, etc. collected when vacuuming. On the top of the cyclone is a "trigger" that you lift with your finger to release the bottom catch, which allows a clear flap to open on the "clear bin," thus letting all the debris fall out. My problem is when you lift the finger trigger, it does not release the catch on the bottom. Since the catch won't release, I cannot remove the entire clear bin either from the cyclone.Any sug

My Fantom Thunder upright has a blockage that sounds like it is directly above the dirt bin in the "head". I cannot access it from inside the bin chamber by going up the nozzle with a claw parts retriever. (This is the older model where the cyclone nozzle doesn't come off.) The wand, hose, rear inspection port, and front brush intake are all clear. How do I get the top of the vac off above the dirt bin? I don't see any screws or slots.

Hello ccap..... It sounds like one of those sensors has gotten out of alignment with the other. check to see if there is a steady green light on each sensor. If not, adjust until the light is a steady green. Joe\015\012\015\012Thanks ... Vacuums

Dyson DC 14 hose has no suction, with or without brush attachments. Hot air shoots out from the base of the canister when I try to use the hose. I cleaned the top filter, but can't figure out how to remove the hepa filter to clean it without destroying the case. It looks like it might take three hands to insert pennies and "flip" the case open as is suggested on a youtube video for a different model. Would this even help, assuming I could get the thing open?
