Dyson model: DC05
I cleaned the filter which was unusually full of fairly large bits of debris. While the vac is on, some powdery debris have been sucked into the bin but fairly large bits are gathering on the sponge of the filter. This is after a very short session.
Dont know why this should happen - everything seems to be fitted well together OK.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Sorry for late reply. On DC05 the carry handle/filter cover forms part of the cyclone, as in the root for the cyclone is in this part. If you look under the handle you will see the root sticking out. There is a channel that takes the dirt from the cyclone to the pre filter. This part can get blocked with hair and dirt when the filter starts getting blocked. After you have cleaned the filter and restored the suction back, any blockages in this channel can get sucked straight into the filter due to the suction increase.

Also check all seals are in place, the bin insert should have a seal on the top and bottom. Also where i mentioned the root coming out from under the handle, just above there is another seal, make sure that is also intact
