Red lever will not pull up so I can empty/replace canister

I cannot empty my V8 canister because the red lever will not budge will I try to pull it up. Dyson is sending me a new canister, but have no idea how I can change it because you have to pull the red lever to release the current one.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I also have a Dyson V8 absolute. The mechanism / red handle to open the bin is stuck. Having a new replacement bin is not helpful as I cannot access the bin release button to replace. I believe this is similar to the original authors problem. I have had it for 2 years with no problem so am used to the motion and strength required to empty the bin. The red handle now feels stuck and applying excessive force will break /snap something

I took mine back to the service dept and they told me I shouldn't shut it by firmly by putting it on a hard surface to" click" it into place. Softly softly they told me. So far so good, but I am not holding my breath as this is the third time being serviced within a year.

Thanks Linda, i'm on the hotline hopefully to resolve , use mine once a week for two years. First problem i have had to be fair. CC

Problem fixed, appears the jam happened because the bin was closed shut before you push the cyclone down. In other words closing the bin door is the very last thing you should do. You can press the red paddle/button on the very bottom and ease the bin out manually, it is quite stiff so you need a good wiggle to get the bin off. Then the cyclone was no longer stuck and the bin refitted.

You are 100% right Colin. Why the service dept couldn't have told me this the first time puzzles me.

I just had the same thing with mine, which happens when you close the door before reinserting the top. What happens is when you close the top first, there a red lever that needs to be pushed in by the lid. If you reverse this, you miss out on pushing that red tab and it ends up being a nightmare. To fix this, you need to moderately release the canister by pressing on the 1/2” lever at the bottom and moving the canister as much as you can, then, basically pry open the lid. It's terrifying and feels like you're going to break it, but it's just a ton of suction in the middle. Once you have the lid open, you should be able to pull up normally on the large red lever at the top and properly close it (top first, then lid).
