The Dyson DC15

The DC15 is the largest ball machine Dyson made and the first "Ball" machine. They are a full-sized family model with a larger dust capacity than any of the other ball machines mentioned on this thread.

The DC15 "The Ball" was released in 2005 in three variants, the DC15 All Floors, Allergy and Animal. It has a ball instead of a wheel, which in conjunction with a universal joint on the cleaner head makes it possible to steer the machine by twisting the handle to the right or left. The cleaner uses the Root Cyclone technology also used in the DC14.

In our opinion, they are built more robustly than the smaller Dyson ball models although known to be rather complex to repair for the inexperienced. They came with three tools rather than the one multi tool the smaller ones come with; they are a serious machine! But be warned if considering one: They are heavier than other ball models. Ladies sometimes complain they are harder to carry up and down stairs.

These are very hard to come by now in good condition. Many have been hacked around by amateur repairers.

The Dyson DC16

The DC16 was Dyson's first handheld vacuum cleaner based on the same technology as in their DC14 and DC15 root cyclone upright vacuum cleaners. The DC16 had 36 airwatts of suction. The DC16 weighs 1.5kg.

The product was also available in an "Issey Miyake" limited edition in which the manifold on the cyclone assembly is pink instead of the standard yellow, and an Animal version that features a motorized brushbar for picking up pet hair and gold cyclone manifold. Also in the range was the DC16 "Car and Boat" which was designed for car and boat cleaning, and came with a car 12v charger and has a blue cyclone manifold.

There is plenty of DIY repair advice and chat in >our Handheld, Cordless, Stick, Wand & Robotic Dyson Vacuum Cleaners forum room<.

Dyson have long since abandoned spares supply and service for these machines, but independent specialists have most of the spares still. We sell spares for these >>here<<.

The Dyson DC17

The Dyson DC17 is an upright cleaner launched in October 2006 in the US. Although visually similar to the DC14, it contains new technologies, and is designed specifically for North American carpets. The first upgrade is the use of Dyson's new Level 3 Root Cyclone.

This system incorporates 11 cyclones to more efficiently filter sand and dust particles out of the airstream. In this system, the airflow travels from the low speed outer cyclone to two intermediate cyclones that filter out the bulk of dust and sand particles that are drawn into the system. Beyond that, the airflow flows through the remaining eight high speed cyclones which filters out any remaining dust particles out of the airstream.

The Level 3 Root Cyclone improves upon the original Root Cyclone system with its capability to more efficiently separate sand particles from the air flow; contaminants that the current Root Cyclone has difficulty with. Early versions of these machines had a tendency to suffer from dislodged cyclone seals and then completely blocking the entire cyclone system. An updated cyclone assembly with improved seals was introduced late in their lifespan and was available as a spare part; many were supplied under warranty by Dyson.



The second change with the DC17 upright is the brushroll design. While the brushrolls used on the DC07, DC14, and DC15 were designed with European carpets in mind, the DC17's brush roll was designed for North America with a cylindrical shape, a large diameter, and short stiff bristles. A separate motor drives the brushroll, unlike the DC07 and DC14 which use clutches that utilize power from the main motor.

The third change is a new colour scheme that indicates the colour theme for future Dysons. The bright colours and silver tones are toned down in favour of shiny metallic accents and titanium as the main colour for the entire machine.

The DC17 was never sold in the UK, but we have one in our museum, and you can read the rebuild topic on it >>here<< and see it in action in the video below.

The Dyson DC18

The Dyson DC18 Slim, launched in September 2006, is a slimmer and lighter weight successor of the DC15 Ball upright. A major difference between the DC15 and DC18 is the weight. The DC18 is lighter weight at 6.6 kilograms, or 15.8 pounds. In comparison, the DC15 weighs 8.6 kilograms, or 19.95 pounds. The DC18's Root Cyclone system has been trimmed down to better accommodate the machine's slimmer profile. While the DC15 uses 8 cyclones, the DC18 uses 6. The bin capacity comparison between the two models is DC18 1.7 litres (0.4 gallons) and DC15 2.5 litres (0.71 gallons).



In addition, the ball design has been modified for the DC18, and is not as complex as the DC15 ball unit. Rather than riding on a large ball that encloses the primary motor, the DC18 rides on a thin, cigar shaped roller that yields more space for separate motor enclosure and airway paths.



The DC18 machines were known for the undercarriage mechanism being prone to break causing the machine not to stand up. Its an expensive repair that has consigned many to the scrap heap. In comparison to other Dyson machines, few of these remain in use.

The Dyson DC19 and DC19T2

The DC19 was a revision of the previous DC08.



These two variants of the DC19 are similar apart from the wand handle and tool attachments.

The standard DC19 does not feature the "Telescopic Wrap" system. The DC19 T2 is the same as DC19, but was fitted with a vacuum-driven brushbar for better pick up on carpets as well as hard floors. The DC19T2 has different tool fittings than the standard DC19 which can make sourcing tools and cleaner heads problematic as they are not interchangeable.

The DC19 is called the DC29 in Australia.

We urge spare parts buyers to exercise great caution when buying any tool or cleaner head for these models as Dyson did a lot of playing around with different tool sockets and fittings at this time. Many otherwise seemingly identical machines can have differing tool sockets, and many people make mistakes when buying spare parts that involve a tool or tool/hose socket fitting.

The Dyson DC20



The DC20 is essentially a DC19 with a few minor variations on colours. Most parts are interchangeable and/or the same.



The photos here are of a DC20 "Stowaway", which is pretty much the same machine as a DC19 "Telescopic Wrap".

The Dyson DC21



The DC21 is another variant on the DC08/DC19/DC20 and again shares many parts and is essentially the same machine as a DC19/20 apart from that it has a motor-powered brush head as opposed to a vacuum-driven brush head as with any DC08/19/20.

Sales volume was lower in the UK than the preceding DC08/19/20 models.

The Dyson DC23

The DC23 was available in the UK in three variants: The Allergy, the Animal and the Motorhead. In Australia and the US, other colours like blue were made.


A screenshot from US TV - A DC23 is $499

The DC23 is visually quite similar to the DC19/20/21, but the changes during the facelift were many. The motor differed slightly; fundamentally still a YDK as with many of the previous cylinders, but a closer relative to the motors fitted to upright machines as they have a drive shaft. On a DC23, the motor has a shaft driven cooling fan on top of the motor (the one and only of its type fitted to a Dyson) that the repair trade has never quite figured out what it was for. The DC23 has a more complex and updated cyclone design similar to that seen in the DC22, an internal cylindrical HEPA filter and a different pre-filter to the older DC08/19/20/21 cylinders.


A DC23 Animal

Other minor design details included the vented exhaust seen in the picture below. The tool socket fitting on these is of the design Dyson continued with for some time after. For those people with older 32mm tools, an adaptor can be bought to fit older tools to the DC23.


Showing the unique exhaust vent.

Think of the DC23 as a subtle facelift of the DC19/20/21 with the changes more internal than might be noticeable at first glance. They were generally regarded as robust and capable machines, and many still exist today. However, as with many Dysons, if buying refurbished, be sure to buy from a seller who knows what he is doing rather than someone who has economised on the rebuild. Some DC23 parts can be expensive for those hoping to refurbish on a budget.

Dyson are now winding down spares supply for these machines with a view to discontinuing them, but the after-market already makes filters, motors and many other components, so your DC23 can live for a few years yet.

There are plenty of DIY repair topics and discussion on the DC23 in our >>cylinder Dyson room on our forums<<.

The Dyson DC24

The DC24 was the first first small ball machine.



Despite some marketing to the contrary, the DC24 is best suited to people who live in small apartments/houses, without hairy dogs or many children as it's a small machine. Despite what anyone tells you, a small machine will never do the job of a big machine.

The DC24 is a compact machine, and the handle slides down into the machine for easy storage. You can see from the picture below just how compact and light the Dyson DC24 is.

Again: This model is not particularly suitable for those who have big houses, kids, cats and dogs. It is more suited to the the single or couple household really. Many people use them as a secondary "upstairs" machine in order that the lady of the house doesn't have to carry the "serious downstairs machine" upstairs.

ila_rendered

The DC24 is a small, ultra-lightweight Dyson ball featured in the video below, and demonstrated by our model above, weighing in at a mere 5.4 kilos (That's less than 12 pounds if you think in imperial).

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OvwyX1M3Z-Q" target="_blank">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OvwyX1M3Z-Q</a>

These machines were criticised for having Johnson brushroll motors that had a quite short life. And indeed, they do fail prematurely. However, that said, you can buy OEM brushroll motors at a keen price and there are good fitting tutorials to assist you in the repair when they fail. Despite the brushroll motor issue that some regard as built in obsolescence or a design fault, they quite rightly remain popular machines. As long as you understand that they are for quite light duty use, a DC24 will serve you well.

The Dyson DC25

The DC25 is a full size Ball upright vacuum, the replacement for the DC15 and DC18.



The DC25 vacuum has a washable pre-filter as most Dysons, and a HEPA filter that can be washed a few times.

This vacuum is broadly similar to the DC15, but a little smaller and lighter. Also broadly similar to the DC24, but a larger version.

ila_rendered

It proved to be a more popular model than the DC15 and the DC18. Superseded in 2012 by the DC40 and DC41.

The DC25 - like the DC24 - had a Johnson brushroll motor fitted that is known to fail prematurely. However, that said, you can buy OEM brushroll motors at a keen price and there are good fitting tutorials to assist you in the repair when they fail. Despite the brushroll motor issue that some regard as built in obsolescence or a design fault, they quite rightly remain capable and popular machines.

The Dyson DC26

Ultra compact cylinder model, the DC26, known as the Dyson "City" was claimed to be the World's smallest vacuum cleaner. Even smaller than the DC22. The machine is so small that it will fit onto a piece of A4 paper.


James Dyson with the DC26.

With a very small dust container of 0.68 litres, and cord length of 5 metres, it was designed for small dwellings with primarily hard floors. It weighs just 5.6 kg and has a claimed 160 AirWatts suction power.

Relatively few remain due to low sales volume originally coupled with very high genuine spare part prices. Production was never high enough to warrant the after-market making many spares for these.

The Dyson DC27



The DC27 was a less-popular update of the DC14. The DC27 is a full size upright which has wheels rather than a ball, an auto-adjusting cleaner head and "root-cyclone" technology.



Available in "All Floors" or "Animal", the only difference between the two being the Animal had a gold coloured cyclone top and a HEPA post-motor filter, and the All Floors had a yellow coloured cyclone top and a normal fleece pad type post-motor filter.

They were not in production that long before they were facelifted again into what became the DC33.
