Hi fellow Dyson (and DC07) lovers!
My DC07 animal (about 20 years old now) has been through a lot. I had to replace the canister handle b/c it broke and found out the hard way about sliding the rod into the small hole before screwing the top back onÖ :p
But now Iím having 2 problems out of nowhere and would love some help:
1) The cyclone assembly release catch isnít working and I canít get the canister off the vacuum. When I look I can see a gap at the bottom so it seems like maybe itís not seated properly and thatís whatís causing the issue? But Iím not sure how to fix it/get it to releaseÖany ideas?
2) The release to tilt the vacuum back is stuck. I found a video on how to manually do it flipping the vacuum over and pulling the black catch out and I can get it to tilt back that way-and I tried greasing the part where it is supposed to slide but no luck. Any ideas on how to fix that longer termÖ?
Thank in advance for any help! Cheers and Happy New Year!
