DC11 Canister cyclone spring loaded pieces
« on: March 31, 2015, 04:31:18 AM »
Hello There.
I found this forum whilst searching for some direction on the reassembly of my 11 year old Dyson cd11 canister cyclone.  I have disassembled and cleaned it. Now there are two spring loaded pieces of plastic that need to be re-assembled properly in order for me to carry on.  I understand the placement of the dogleg piece with the short spring. It's the long round ended piece with the longer spring that I can not for the life of me get back into place.  I'm assuming that it runs perpendicular to the dogleg and somehow fits inside the button that holds the dust bin onto the cyclone assembly.  I'm hoping someone on this forum may have been down this road before.
A pic is attached.

Someone on a car forum (who all know I like vacuums)  posted up moaning that the turbo head on their dc11 was not turning.  Talked him through the troubleshooting and asked about your issue (borrowed your picture too,  sorry!)  and he said

The wee spring doofer looks like the one that secures the clear plastic shell to the yellow inner part of the bin. Iits across the top of the main removable bit between the two cylinders just below all the whooshy yellow bits, if that makes sense.

Hope this helps!

OK.  I'm trying my best to follow.  Can you describe the "whooshy yellow bits"?  Are we saying that this piece does not fit inside that yellow clear plastic cylindrical button, but over the top of it? Perhaps I'll give another try tonight and send some more pics.

I'll see if I can get pictures of mine at the weekend if you like? It's still in the shed as it needs a floor tool and small tools, which are too many 's to make sense refurbishing or buying

OK. Here are a few pics that I took when I was finally able to get the spring loaded parts assembled.  I hope this helps. Good luck.
