If something is blocking that bin release, you should be able to remove it. If the release is still stuck, try pressing and holding that release for a few seconds. Sometimes the release just needs a little help or a bit more force to get started. Another tip to try; gently press and release the bin release a few times.
First, make sure that the release button is not obstructed in any way. If there is something blocking the button, simply remove it. If the release button is clear but still stuck, try pressing and holding the button for a few seconds. Sometimes the release mechanism just needs a little help getting started.
The DC07 had a long production run from 2001 until 2008, and came in many different colour combinations.
The Dyson DC07 was introduced in 2001 with brand new Root Cyclone technology.
One of the first things to do when your Dyson vacuum cleaner keeps starting and stopping is to empty the bin. It may be full, or the machine may simply perceive it as too full to continue working. Dyson vacuum cleaners require constant airflow through them to work, and a full bin can stop this from happening.
Dyson was designed and patented by a British, had it made in Malaysia (Johor Bahru), – as it is cheaper to make here.
If there is a strong burning smell coming from the motor area of your Dyson DC14 or DC07 then it is most likely that your motor has burnt out.
There are two filters on a DC07, the first is the pre-motor filter, which are washable and is recommended by Dyson to be washed at least every 6 months. The pre motor filter also acts as a protection to the motor, trapping the smallest of dirt or debris from travelling to the motor.
The bin base will not open if the red button is not pushed down fully. Press the red button located on the bin runner to release the bin and slide the bin off the runner. Gently tap the side of the cyclone over a bin. This will remove any fine dust clogged up in the cyclone.

On the DC07, the entire cyclone assembly must be removed to empty the dust, debris, etc. collected when vacuuming. On the top of the cyclone is a “trigger” that you lift with your finger to release the bottom catch, which allows a clear flap to open on the “clear bin,” thus letting all the debris fall out. My problem is when you lift the finger trigger, it does not release the catch on the bottom. Since the catch won’t release, I cannot remove the entire clear bin either from the cyclone.Any sug
Beofre you go to the extent of buying a replacement canister, you can remove the top and using a straightened coat hanger type thing open that bottom lid. Then maybe you can clean the rim and possibly add some silicone spry to loosen things up. Here’s how to get inside In this order: 1) Remove the canister 2) remove the three star screws at the top of the canister. It’ll take a bit of pressure to pull the top up, there’s a rubber seal. When you pull it up there will be a rod running down into the canister, leave it be, just pull up the top high enough to clear out any debris. 3) Use a straightened coat hanger and with a flashlight to guide you, reach down with it and push it into that hole down at the bottom center of the canister. That will pop the lid open. Clean the canister & lid rims, maybe add some silicone. At this point you might as well clean the canister too. OPTIONAL-> ***leave the bottom lid open*** and follow the rest of these steps 4) Put the top back on aligning the screws, when you lower it make sure the bottom of the rod engages with the hole at the bottom center of the canister, this is why you left the bottom lid open. Put the three star screws back in. 4) Turn the canister upside down, lid open, and keeping in mind this is thin plastic, gently tug upwards on the four fins that surround the bottom rubber seal. This part is held in by friction, so work your way around the four fins gently pulling until you work the ring they’re connected to free. This will give you access to the inside of the canister. 5) remove the round perforated section by tugging upwards on it, set it aside with the fin part. 6) Take the canister to a laundry tub or large sink and holding it bottom up fill it with hot/warm water. Grasping the center section shake it vigorously and turn it upside down while shaking and a bunch of sh*t will come out. Repeat several times. 7) Dry thoroughly, you might use a hairdryer held to the center tube, but only if you can switch off the heat and use air only. Make sure its 200% dry, water will kill your machine 8) clean and replace the round perforated section 9) replace the fin section, I’d suggest pulling the round rubber part off of the fin part and setting it in place on the canister first, then follow with the plastic fin part. If you don’t do it this way the rubber won’t seat properly and the bottom lid won’t close. 10) Close the lid, replace the canister, and staaaaaart suckin like it’s brand new.
Dyson DC07 Clear Bin Flap will not release
Important thing is that in order to get the rod in the hole, you have to squeeze the trigger while you are trying to do it. Squeezing trigger makes rod longer. All fixed!

Assure the Brush Control on the hood is NOT set to the OFF position.
Remove the brush assembly by pulling/unlatching it from base on each side.
Does one of the brushes have the drive pin present?
It should be about ¼ inch square, and two inches long.
It attaches the brushes to the drive mechanism.
Remove and clean the intake filter.
One the base of the cleaner, behind the brushes, squeeze the two red abs together and pull the panel down to access the screen.
Clean the hair/debris off the screen and reassemble.
Dyson dc07 The rotating brush on the bottom of my vacuum was filled with strings. I removed the brush by undoing all yellow plastic screws from plate. Removed all strings and replaced as best I could and it was hard to get the brush back in and the belt around it. I dont have my manual but it fits so it should be correct….? Right? No, not true, because when I turn it on and try to and vacuum (by lower canister with foot release) it makes that terrible ratching sound). Please help
The loud ratching is a warning to tell you that there is something stopping the roller bar from rotating this is a very common thing lay the machine on the floor front side down take off the bottom plate and just check the belt is in the centre of the belt guide on the brush bar normally if you turn the roller slowly without the bottom plate fitted it will straighten out on its own

I need to change the retractable cord in a Kenmore Model 116.228.13204 vaccum but can’t figure out how to remove the housing. I have removed the bag and the two screws but the top appears to be attached under the foot pedal. How do you release it. Does the foot release pop off somehow to reveal another screw in the back of the housing?

Brushes only work when Dust Bin is removed!!
I have cleaned & cleaned this thing! It runs for about 2 mins & stops, says “Clean Brushes”! and now it’s very noticeable it’s not picking up well… but is picking up a bit. I take the dust bin out, and the brushes spin…. and it has much more power…. and is very clear it is working! But it’s useless without the dust bin! LOL It’s only 9 months old…. called customer service, but it was the one time it worked just fine! Of course, I thought I’
If the brushes work , without the bin, the problem , the problem could be caused , due the failure at the bin lock mechanism. There is a sensor that checks if the BIN is connected properly or not. This problem is best resolved by getting the same replaced .
