DC07 cyclone cut
« on: February 17, 2015, 12:04:36 AM »
For no particular reason I decided to open up a cyclone.

There are 2 different types of.. "things" in them.

The white are open and the black have bits in the middle

 :grinn:  No idea what that means?

It defiantly showed that my cleaning method works, there was a few long hair's caught in 2 of the black ones but apart from that I was well pleased  :thumbsup:

Very nice! I had a smashed cyclone assembly once off an allergy blue DC07 and they also had the white and black things sticking out, not sure what they do though
DC14s are tanks, just need a slightly longer motor life. Do plastic parts often break on DC14s? Nope. DC41- Sexy looking futuristic and powerful machine. Just needs a better designed cleaner head wheel and cyclone clip along with a dense metal rod in the chassis.

There were 2 types of dc07 cyclone units.

I think there were problems with the early ones and it may have been to do with with those black bits. I've read threads that said cyclone units had to be 'de-rooted' even though they are called root cyclone.

The early one clogged and the whole top section of a cyclone unit would be rammed with dust and hair. You can see pics online. My aunties dc07 clogged up like that but that was because she never used to knock the top of the cyclone unit when she emptied it, instead just dump the stuff from the bin and close the flap again.

 Its good in general to give them a blast out. If you can stand the dust cloud  ;D

That's brilliant, fair play for killing one to see!

On the DC26, all the little 'roots' are removeable for thorough cleaning I found!
