problems
« on: March 25, 2016, 10:24:26 PM »
Evening all I`m the new boy to this forum and need some help. I`ve got a DC25 animal, and the post filter keeps rising from the motor and stopping the ball turning. Have cleaned the filter hoping that would solve it but alas NO. Any advice would be welcome.

Hi welcome to the forum! :tiphat:

The cause of this is the carbon dust. The carbon dust eventually becomes too much for the airflow so it gets blocked and the powerful motor is blowing it's exhaust really powerfully, so the air must go somewhere. The sealed filter is doing well but it becomes too much so it just pops the filter out. So unless you wash the filter REALLY well, the filter will continue to pop out.

The aftermarket filters work okay, not optimistically and are not recommended because the clips are large and in use the catch will make a clicking sound against the ball. There's nothing wrong in removing the post motor filter and using the vacuum, however there is the consequence of non HEPA filtration so carbon dust will escape and it will be slightly louder and sound like a Dyson DC24 (the filter insulates sound aswell). It's best if you buy a brand new filter from Manchestervacs.  :icon_nod:

Hope this helps

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.

Only cheap crap ones from eBay do that. Ours are fine.

Some early qtex post filters did this,  the clip jams the ball.  They soon ironed that out though,  their fine now!

Aftermarket filters are fine,  when you change them every year,  long life isnt the be all or end all!

Depending on if it's a keeper or a seller

I normally if in keeping the machine take it out remove rubber gasket put filter in washing machine with cleaning solution once fully dry I take the the rubber seal and microwave it for 10 seconds it softens the rubber and springs it to its original shape once the rubber has cooled put it all back together and there you have it
