My apologies if this is truly simple, or has been answered elsewhere. I have searched and not found any solutions....
I have a Dyson DC01. If I remove the filters, it works quite well, but with the filters in place, it barely sucks - well, maybe as much as an asthmatic worm. Removing the filters, and it works as one might expect.
I have stripped it a couple of times without finding anything awry - but that was a while ago, and now I cannot even find a manual to help guide stripping it - so if there is a source of that, it would be appreciated.
I have checked the three yellow buttons behind the dust box, and they move freely; all the rubber seals seem to be OK, and the only one that appears to have a gap is one of two rubber flaps on the bottom of the cleaner, which almost is sealed - but if I push it closed, it has no effect.
Is there a way to sort this out, or advice as to what may be wrong?
Many thanks for your help.
