    Hi, it's Ryan at Dyson.

    The answer to your question would depend on which specific Dyson vacuum model you own. Please call the Dyson Helpline at 1-866-693-9766 so we can assist you further or visit to review our online troubleshooting guides.

    In either case, I strongly recommend that you not use your Dyson vacuum until you are certain the filter is in the correct position to prevent damage to the motor.

    Best wishes,
