Looking for help with my dc37 animal.  It keeps cycling on and off and not working.

I ended up here by accidently sliding the cylinder too far when emptying my wife's almost new V11 Animal.  According to the sticker, its a G2D-US-MMC..... model.   But it seems as if the naming convention and market naming and parts naming is not always consistent.

The conical red seal and a gray retaining ring popped off.   In the process of fixing that, I could not get the retaining ring to snap.   I kept checking the embossing in the seal and the notch in the ring, round and round, eventually,  I ripped the seal.  Then I snapped the retaining ring as it probably wasn't meant to be take on and off so many times.....  The hole deep.    I've ordered a replacement big bin assembly for my dear wife... but, I want to try and repair this one... searching and searching, I could not find a bill of material assembly breakout and I eventually landed here.

Still don't know if I'll find what I'm seeking, but, gosh, I never knew vacuums could generate such a passionate following.   I'm sure there's a pun sucked into that statement somehow...

Hey there from Heaton Chapel (waves across the A6...)

Initially found this site trying to repair a friend's Dyson DC17 (or was it an 18 or 24 - I cant' remember now).  I decided then I'd never own a Dyson as it was all nasty hard brittle plastic.

Anyway, I made a note of the place, as we've got a Sebo X1.  I've just got two broken X4s by family members to fix - so I'll probably say hi a few more times yet
Sebo X1 Auto, Sebo X4 Auto, Oreck XL Compact, Bosch small thingy

Believe it was through Google while searching for troubleshooting help on a Dyson DC 17.

My name is David and I have OCD or should it be CDO!!! Anyway when purchasing anything I always do research and I came by this site via good old google... its appears to be they Haynes Manual for vacuum cleaners and some of the knowledge from some of the contributors on a standard that NASA would be proud of!!!
So I am after advice of course so will post my questions in the forums!

To the team and contributors - please keep up the excellent work - where people like me rely on tech data and points of view from you the experts!
They told me to go for it - by time I got there - it had gone!

Hi.

New member. Known of this place for a while, thought it’s finally time to jump in and join.

I’ve been a vacuum cleaner and floorcare engineer for almost 20 years, I’ve been around cleaning machines all my life as I work in the family business. fortunate to say I really enjoy what I do for a living.

I also collect older, interesting machines, particularly Dyson, Numatic, Sebo and the odd Nilco. Always on the look out for more! The hunt continues. . .
