Vacuum Cleaners/Dyson 25


QUESTION: Hi Lisa, I own a Dyson 25. The Iron Wheel Spigot has broken. Is this a part I can change myself?
I have mechanical skills.

ANSWER: Hi John,
 I apologize for the delay in responding. I was unable to find a part called "Iron Wheel Spigot" on the parts breakdown for the DC-25. If you go to and enter the model number, what group of parts is it in? What is the number on the diagram, please? I would be happy to help if I am able.
Thank you.

QUESTION: Group Main Body Assy

Number 18

Hi John. If you haven't already dismantled the unit to this point, I would recommend you not attempt it. Dysons are a little difficult in that they are often secured by tab locks.
It's rather impossible for me to know if you should do it when I do not know your level of expertise. Myself, I have always gone with the rule of only going as far as I felt comfortable going.
If the unit is within the warranty period, however, I would take to an authorized Dyson repair center.
I apologize for not being able to give you a definite answer. There's just no way of knowing. Thank you for your question.

Please ask me any questions regarding the efficiency, durability, and value of 99.5% of today's vacuum cleaners, residential and commercial. I am able to help, also, with your residential carpet cleaners and vapor steamers. I cannot answer questions such as "how much should I pay for my vac?" "how often should I change the bag, belt, filter?" or "how often should I vacuum?" , etc. I also will not advise you how to use equipment for other than its original application; including any disassembly or modification not approved by the unit's manufacturer.


I am the owner of a well-established (sixty-plus years), family-owned & operated vacuum retail and repair business. We are a full service/warranty center for 99.5% of vacuums manufactured. I, personally, have extensive hands-on experience with today's most popular vacuum cleaners, I have not only used the vacs in my own home, I have repaired them. I have been in the floor care industry for over 25 years.

I have attended certification seminars with the industry's trade association. My education, however, has been mostly hands-on, carrying on a sixty year old tradition in a brick and mortar 'mom & pop' location.
