There's no gaps. Could the seal need replacing again? I fitted the seal properly and tightly.

Check around the perimeter, do you see any gaps? It could be hissing due to the suction leaking as a result of the seal not being fitted correctly.

I installed a new dc33 gasket on the cyclone ( a Qtex one) the one which is prone to damage . Once I installed and used the machine I can hear a very small hiss from the cyclone. Is it a problem?
thanks, but that's not quite it--

this is the indicator, you can kind of see that it's a rotating disc with a red wedge. the bottom has a protrusion that sits inside a helical receptacle on a rubber diaphragm, so that it spins as the pressure differential changes. I'm going to guess the spring sits under the diaphragm rather than between it and the disc.
Not sure if this is the right type, but it shows where the spring is located: on the centre lug and in front of the 2 plastic pegs.
Yep! To quote the service manual:

The point at which the indicator shows that the dustbag should be changed can be modified by turning the adjustment screw (Figure 6-7, Item 1) as follows:
Counterclockwise: Indication to change the dustbag occurs earlier Clockwise: Indication to change the dustbag occurs later

This rotary-type indicator also has an adjustment screw--I just need to figure out where in the assembly the spring goes.
Apparently you can alter the sensitivity of the device by turning the adjuster screw. There's a clip somewhere on YouTube of the adjustment being made to compensate for higher altitudes! This particular repair shop was 5,000ft up in Denver, but I don't suppose anyone in the UK will need to bother with compensating for lower air pressure...
Oh for sure--I actually called my local dealer a long while back when, even after dismantling and cleaning the turbine head, couldn't get it to suck much up. Of course, it was a full bag, and I was running on empty after a series of late nights....

Next time I'm over at the family's, I'll take some photos of the device.

You need to ever so gently prise one side of the hinge pins out. Do the actual lid part. Open the filter cover/top, get a flatblade screwdriver in and VERY gently bend the tab outwards and itll pop off. Sort of the same to get it back on. Be careful though, the plastic can be very brittle

Parwaz is spot on.
I don't think I've ever had a DC33 that didn't want it's motor replacing. Back hoses, well yeah, that's par for the course with any Dyson. I think DC07's and DC14's are far better machines than the DC33. As for DC27's.....I won't touch them. Far too labour intensive and there is probably a reason why Dyson withdrew the product fairly quickly!

I also hate the plastic wand on DC33's...far too flexible for doing stairs, etc.


Our american DC33 is still going after 5 years of pretty severe use.   Must be an issue with the UK spec 240V motors.
Back in the UK i have a couple of 07s, 14s, and a 27 animal.   The 27 is by far my favorite, everything fits together really nicely, the wand is sturdy metal, and it looks/feels like a solid, cool looking unit.    The 33 feels like a step backwards, and seems to have a lot more parts in common with 14s than the 27s.   The 33's wand is really badly designed in my opinion, not only because it's plastic, but you have to press two buttons to get it out, where as on the 27, it can be done in one simple motion.
