Operating manual
Please read carefully before
assembling or using your
DCO2 vacuum cleaner.
Please note that if the filters are not checked regularly and
changed as required, the motor may overheat, which will
cause the thermal cut-out to operate.
NOTE: Vacuuming builder’s dust and some carpet
fresheners may cause the filters to require changing
more frequently. (Dyson does not recommend the use
of carpet fresheners).
Replacement filters are available from your local retailer
or direct from Dyson. Call or fax the Helpline for orders.
IMPORTANT: Use only genuine Dyson filters, which
have been tested and approved for this cleaner.

NOTE
1.
Do not leave your Dyson cleaner with the plug connected to a mains outlet
– unplug when not in use. Turn the cleaner off with the switch button before
removing from the mains outlet.
2.
Always remove the plug from a mains outlet before carrying out any
maintenance. Do not carry out any maintenance work on the cleaner other
than that outlined in this manual, especially where electrical components
are concerned.
IMPORTANT
Check that your supply corresponds to that shown on the rating plate. The appliance must
only be used as rated, it should be fitted with an ASTA approved fuse to BS1362.
European conformity information A sample of this product has been tested and found
to be in conformity with the following European Directives: 73/23/EEC Low voltage (safety)
Directive, 93/68/EEC CE Marketing Directive and 89/336/EEC EMC Directive.
For your convenience this appliance is supplied with a plug which is fitted with a 13amp
fuse of the appropriate rating.
Never put the plug into the socket outlet without the fuse cover fitted. Replacement fuse
covers are available from Dyson Customer Care. If the plug supplied is not suitable for
your socket outlet, it should be cut off and destroyed/safely disposed of. Warning: Under
no circumstances should the severed plug be inserted into a 13A socket, serious
danger of electric shock would result from the exposed wires.
The mains lead can then be shortened to the minimum required length, suitably prepared
and the correct style of plug to suit your household wiring system should be fitted. The
following wiring instructions should be followed. If in doubt, consult a qualified
electrician.
Unwanted products and the environment Should you find that your product needs
replacing one day, or is of no further use to you, think of protecting the environment. Dyson
will accept your old products and recycle them in an environmentally friendly way.
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following codes.
Brown – Live
Blue – Neutral
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead may not correspond with the colours or
markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:
The wire which is coloured Blue must be connected to the terminal which is marked with
the letter N or coloured Black.
3.
Do not use without the clear bin assembly fitted correctly and both filters in
place.
4.
Do not fit anything other than Dyson spare parts (available on the Helpline
on 01666 827272). Use of non-Dyson parts could invalidate your
guarantee.
The wire that is coloured Brown must be connected to the terminal which is marked with
the letter L or coloured Red.
Neither wire should be connected to the earth terminal of a three pin plug which is marked
with the letter E or
or coloured Green or Green and Yellow.
5.
Do not continue to use the cleaner if any part appears to be faulty, missing
or damaged. In these cases, contact the Dyson Helpline on 01666 827272.
Always ensure that the cable clamp is fitted and that it clamps the cable outer and NOT
the coloured wires.
6.
If the supply cord of the appliance is damaged, disconnect the appliance from the socket
outlet immediately. The supply cord must be replaced and only by Dyson Appliances Ltd.
or their appointed agent as special purpose tools and service techniques are required.
Do not put any part of the body, clothes or any object near or into the
openings or moving parts of the machine. Do not use the machine with any
of the openings blocked with any object that may restrict the airflow.
7.
Do not pull on the supply cord, run over it or pull it around sharp edges or
near/over hot surfaces. If damaged, call the Dyson Helpline. Do not handle
the cleaner or plug with wet hands.
8.
Do not use the cleaner if the cord or plug are damaged or if the cleaner has
been damaged, dropped or has come into contact with water or any other
liquid. In these cases, contact the Helpline.
9.
Do not use the cleaner to pick up water or any other liquid. Electrical shocks
could occur if used outdoors or on wet surfaces.
10. Do not use the cleaner to pick up flammable or combustible substances or
hot ashes or burning objects of any kind. Do not use near such substances.
11. Do not work below the cleaner on the stairs.
12. Do not immerse the whole cleaner in water for cleaning. The clear bin alone
may be washed out after emptying. Ensure this is completely dry before
using the cleaner again.
13. Static charge can occur in many ways and, when vacuuming, certain carpets
may generate small static charges in the clear bin. These are entirely
harmless and are not associated with the mains supply. To minimise any
effect from this, do not put your hand or insert any object into the clear bin
unless you have first emptied and rinsed out the clear bin with water.
