If there is one vacuum cleaner brand that offers many different vacuum cleaners, it is Dyson. Canister vacuums, handheld vacuums, stick vacuums: Dyson has it all. Even specific types of vacuum cleaners can be found in many different versions. If we look at stick vacuums alone, Dyson already has dozens of variants.
When you need a new part, for example a battery or an extra suction brush, it is relevant to know which Dyson you have. This way you know for sure whether the part is suitable for your model. In this article I’ll help you find out which Dyson vacuum cleaner you have!
Why is it smart to know which Dyson vacuum cleaner you have?
Let me first start with 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 vacuum battery life, for example, it appears that you may need a new battery after a few years.
Update: Dyson vacuum cleaners have recently been supplied with a very handy crevice tool with LED lighting. This one is also for sale separately!
To be sure whether a part is compatible with your vacuum cleaner, it is necessary to know which model you have. For example – to stick to the example – a battery is by no means suitable for all Dyson models.
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.
