What does the bin inner/insert do?
My DC03 is well old, and I stopped paying the monthly maintenance fee a few months ago. Just before I did, a final service visit had the engineer replace the bin and cyclone assembly. He did not, apparently, refit the inner. The 03 had much improved performance, but stopped working again recently. Major clogs found in the cassette, sole and post filter. Having cleared these, it works again but is low on suck. There seems to be more cloggage in the top (grey) bit of the cyclone, which I'm struggling to clear. This is when I noticed the inner was not present. Has the design changed so that this part is now not necessary? Could the absence of the inner cause these extreme clogs elsewhere?
Grateful for any replies
Dave

Could you clarify which part you refer to as the bin inner?

Hi there, it's described in the manual as the "inner". It's the yellow plastic part that lives in the lower, clear part of the cyclone section, or bin. Has a long tube section at the top and flares out to the edge of the bottom of the clear bin.
It's indicated in the diagram to the bottom left of page 2 of the manual.

With that piece missing the larger outer cyclone will be bypassed so all the big bits of dirt will be going to the finer cyclones which aren't designed for it, which is no doubt why they have clogged. It's definitely not optional, I suggest you get onto ebay!

Thanks for that onion, it seems that it's quite a common occurrence, the inner going missing. It's fixed to the bin but not that tight. Users often empty the bin into their wheely and don't notice the inner's come loose and gone in with the waste. New inner on order, not expensive. Cheers.
