This is for a customer who asked us how to change his Airblade hand dryer filter, but will be useful for many people.
This relates to plastic-bodied Dyson hand dryers with model number ABXX, for example, AB03, AB14, etc.
It is good practice to change the filter once a year. A blocked filter restricts the airflow to the hand dryer and causes the motor to overheat and the PCB in the motor bucket to fail.
We sell the filters >>here<<
singly and >>here<<
Your hand dryer looks like this:
The filter is located at the bottom of the machine under the door with a vent in.
There are two screws at the back of that vented door. One on each side.
They are anti-tamper Torx T30 heads. We sell the spanner to undo them >>here<<
in case of need.
Undo the two screws and remove the door.
Look up under the machine and you will see the dirty filter.
There's a plastic latch on one side you move outwards a bit to allow the filter to be removed.
The filter can be stuck in and might require a pull to remove.
Time to refit the new filter. It goes in foam side towards you, with the long protrusion side first, and the small protrusion snaps into the little lever.
There it is in place. Refit the door with the two screws, dont overtighten them, and thats all there is to it.
