Early cyclone roots
« on: October 17, 2016, 11:48:14 PM »
Hi have a very early 2001 dc07 standard to sell and its cyclone roots are clogged up with hair and fluff etc and I cannot clean them out. This means no suction and it makes a loud using sound.

Any ideas, hose on jet with some of this didn't work.

First, suck out all the cyclones individually with your most powerful vacuum, something like a DC14 or a Henry would be good.

If that doesn't work, let the cyclone soak in hot water and bleach for a few hours so all the dirt just turns to gunk and spills out.

If that doesn't work, get a sink unblocking powder which (BTW you need to wear protective gear with), so justpour that powder into the cyclones and then pour boiling kettle water into thta, it should eliminate any hair etc.
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.

Or instead of all that, a decent pressure washer.
