Dyson V8 - Bin Not releasing
« on: July 18, 2021, 07:55:58 AM »
Hey guys,

I've noticed on the internet (unable to find a solution) that the Dyson V8 bins are a real pain in the a** to empty. I am not sure what I am doing wrong as I pull follow the directions on the Dyson website, but it fails to release the bottom catch to empty the waste.

Any ideas?

Cheers

*Update

I have sourced the problem of the bin opening issue. The red clip seems to have a part missing at the bottom of it , shown in the photo. My next question would be, where can I buy a replacement?

Have you got a photo of the broken part?

Hope you can see it. At the bottom of the red clip circled, there seems to be something missing (a piece of plastic that pushes the lid right off)
