Check the Dyson serial number on your vacuum cleaner

First, it is important to find the model number or serial number on your Dyson vacuum cleaner. This tells you which Dyson you have exactly. The numbers can be found on a sticker on your Dyson. It looks like this:

The model number often consists of two letters followed by two numbers. Examples are the SV22, the CY22 or the DC62. The model number is not always stated. In that case you have to make do with the serial number, which often starts with three letters, followed by a country code and then a series of numbers. An example is TM8-EU-12939920. The first three numbers are the most important.

Why is it smart to check which Dyson vacuum cleaner you have?

Let me briefly address the question of why it is actually relevant to know which Dyson vacuum cleaner you have. I already mentioned in the introduction that you may need a new Dyson part. In my article about the Dyson battery life, for example, it appears that after a few years you may need a new battery.

To know for sure whether a part is compatible with your vacuum cleaner, it is necessary to know which Dyson you have. For example – to stick to the example – a battery is by no means suitable for all Dyson models.

To know for sure whether a part is compatible with your vacuum cleaner, it is necessary to know which Dyson you have.

It can also be interesting if you run into problems with your vacuum cleaner. If you go looking for help, one of the first questions is of course which vacuum cleaner it is.

  1. My dyson upright has a sticker with a serial number but NO MODEL number. Can you tell me what model I have? SN: JDJ-US-JGA6227A. Thank you.

  2. I have a serial number ts1-uk-kkg8934a – is it a DC7 handheld? Thanks

    • I have a Gold color handheld Dyson I don’t know what type of cord to get to recharge it. Serial number 27021334809DE

      • Hi Karen,

        Thank you for your message! Could you take a look at the battery? Above the word Dyson is probably the model number? If not, could you email a photo of the battery sticker, so I can take a look with you

    • Hi Paul,

      Can you see what code it says at Dyson? The above is indeed the serial number, but to know the model you need the model number. See the image at the top of my article where you can find it.

      • Hi,

        I have serial no. T8P-EU-RDJ5998A. Is this model v10 absolute 2022 or just v10 absolute.

        Thank you.

          Hi Petra,

          I dare not say with certainty (to my knowledge that is also irrelevant for a new V10 battery). You could send me a picture of the entire sticker of the battery, then I can search with you.



    • I can’t find my model number Can you tell me by my serial #

    • Like everyone else, the only significant number I could find is: DB7-US-DGA0333A (no results)

      • Hi Joey,
        I understand that there is a lot of confusion about model numbers vs serial numbers. To find out which Dyson you have, it is best to look at the model number. This is the word Dyson at the top right. See the photo in my article!

  3. I have a Dyson DC25 but no model number only a serial number – EV8-UK-FGS0466A, please could you find it for me

    • Hi Pamela, the Dyson DC25 is the model (an upright vacuum cleaner). I don’t really understand what you want to know exactly.

  4. I have a dyson with no serial number. I no longer have the box but I do know that it’s a V8. I do know it requires a 5000Ah battery.What model would I have or is V8 it?

  5. I have a serial number but no model number – it ia a animal 2 small ball serial number K1A-UK-PCA2645A

  6. Sorry – I mis typed the serial number above – it is K1S-UK-PCA2645A

  7. Hey Tigchelaar you time waster, you’re obviously confusing your MODEL numbers with your SERIAL numbers and, judging by the above messages, you’re confusing everybody else in the process. I’m guessing English is definitely NOT your first language? Thanks for nothing.

    • Hi Rick,

      Many thanks for your comment and feedback. I am sorry to read that you talk about wasted time. In response to your message, I have updated my article and clarified it with a new photo. In this I explain the difference between the model number and serial number. So thank you for your response.

      About my English: It’s true that English is not my native language, but I’m doing everything I can to improve it.

  8. My serial no is MD3-AU-HBA3635A is this a DC 59

    • Hi Brian,
      Thanks for your comment. The Dyson DC59 is the model! There is no reference to another name (as it can be with the V15, for example). You can double check by checking the word Dyson at the top right to see if DC59 is also there.

  9. My serial number is MJ2 USGAA 0085A. What vacum is it? I need new belts and filters. It’s 10 years old

    • Hi Jaqcueline,
      wow! You must have maintained your Dyson well if it has lasted 10 years. Doing well!
      Can you take a look for me at the top right of the word Dyson on the sticker? There you will find (if all is well) the exact model number.

    Roberto: Thanks for the how to. I stood up, walked to the vacuum, popped off the canister and snapped a photo. Got my model & serial # and added it to my appliances file.

    Cheers to you, sorry to see all the replies indicative of incomplete reading comprehension skills.

    • Yes, Patrick. I was going to make exactly the same comment. I was feeling quite sorry for poor Robbert! It’s an easy mistake to make, to think the serial number is the important number. But Robbert’s picture showing which is which and where to find them is so clear!

      Thanks, Robbert!

    • Hi Patrick, thank you for your nice words and nice to hear that my article helped you further!

  11. I have a Dyson DC15 and it was purchased in 2006. do any of the new models’ attachments fit or are compatible with this DC15 model?

  12. Robbert I cannot tell what mode my stick vacuum is. Labels are different from pictures.
    How can I send you pictures?

    • Hi Allison,

      I’d be happy to help you. Or you can publish the exact codes below or you can email me at info (@) vacuumtester.com.
