You really helped me, friend! Great post. Thanks.

Dyson could make reattaching the bin lid much easier, given how often the lid falls off. But this time, with L Pfaff's help, reattaching was pretty easy. Thanks, L.

Put one of the sides in place in the canister then with your thumb use a bit of force to push the other end into it's slot, I have just done mine and was also aware that it may break but you only need a little force and it won't break. Anyway back to the cleaning, hope this solves your problem

thank you so much, I have tried in vain to replace the flap and now I have finally been able to do it,

da

perfect - was very after reading a little force

da

Super It worked .Thanks a lot. Three critical things 1.Put in the longer hinge first 2.Keep the lid completely open 3 Apply slight pressure with your thumb . It snaps in. If you are applying too much pressure and it still doesn't snap on you may have probably the angle wrong . Go back to step one and two

da

Oh my gosh... I did it! After 3 aggravating days. The key is to put the longer hinge in first. Thank you David and Hari... just saved me from buying a new vacuum!❤️

da

I have a Dyson V7 and the hinges on the lid look to be the same length, but I did have the angle wrong at first - so thank you to hariharan krishnamurthi for tip #2! It made it super easy - I barely used any force at all to snap in the second hinge.

The 2 small lugs have to click back into place and this is extremely difficult. One lug is longer than the other so insert this one into its socket. Then, with the lid in the fully open position force the smaller lug into its socket.  It does require considerable force and I was worried about breaking it but there is some flexibility in the plastic so it didn’t snap off.

Thank you so much for mentioning the lug sizes and also pushing the lid in it’s fully open position! I’ve been trying to get the lid back on for ages and after reading your comments attached it within seconds.

Thanks, the bit about the lugs was exactly what I needed to. The videos listed in another post were not helpful.

da

Yes, thank you. The lug size difference on V8 is so slight, it was not obvious to me. After I read this, I went back and looked really carefully. Once slightly longer side was in first, the other popped back in place pretty easily.

da

Thank you so much after bit of force with my thumb it clicked into place!

This vacuum is absolutey a piece of crap! Constantly need to clean and parts are hard to put together; hate it and wish I never purchased!

No way I could get this back on. About to bring it to Dyson Service Center. Tried one last time. GOT IT!! Trick is to make sure cover is COMPLETELY open.

I had the same problem and solved it using a small flat-bladed (electrical) screwdriver. Found the trick was to apply the tip of the blade, rather than the edge, to the plastic lug. Doing that means you only need a little pressure.

But please - if this happens to you, report the thing to Dyson even if you fix it. This will weaken the plastic lugs and having a thousand dollar (NZ) machine dependent on these little bits of plastic, even if Dyson replace willingly, is simply not acceptable. Great engineering on the motor is no good if there is rubbish engineering on the rest of the thing. If enough report, they will have to acknowledge this as a fault and change the bin design.

Well said, MikeJDiggins!! I've only looked into this subject after my poor wife forget that she'd tucked the thing out of immediate sight, came rapidly round a corner and totally crunched the thing! Flap came off in the scuffle and there we were, trying to get the offending flap back in. Admittedly, it looks impossible but reading these posts have eased my pain! However, I think I'll leave it for a fresh day..... Thanks again for the posts!

Nice! That did the trick

It’s easy. Just squeeze the bin itself across the top diameter and you will notice that the pin lugs in the bin flex out a bit. Slot one pin off the lid into one side lug and then push the other in while squeezing the bin itself. Really easy. No brute force required

Excellent advice, worked a treat, no need to use screwdriver

Use two people for sure and insert the longer tab first.

RobertGuyPowell’s solution is exactly correct and worked but I will explain a little further. First the two pins are clear plastic and go into the side with the clear sockets, not the side with the red moving parts. If you look closely at the pins on the lid they are chamfered in one direction and that’s the direction you want to be pushing them to get them seated back in the hinge sockets. Now Robert says squeeze along the top diameter. This is the diameter 90 degrees to the axis between the hinge and the latch. On one side that is also where the word MAX is written - squeeze the canister between the MAX side and the other side. Get one of the pins in (mine seem to be the same length) and oriented so the chamfer (sloped) side of the other pin will be going straight in to the other socket as you squeeze the canister to open up that hinge area just a skootch. Really, it hardly moves but it’s enough. Stay with it, you can do it! Nice work Robert zeroing in on this fix.

Very helpful, especially your comment about the different sizes. I found I had to use a small flat headed screw driver to ease the ‘hinge’ back. It didn’t snap!

There is a whole batch of comments on this, there is a plastic hinge hidden inside apparently that customers don’t realise it has to attach itself to the dust bin to keep it secure- just google it- good luck.

None of the solutions worked for my dyson v7 animal. I just ordered a new piece for 22.00

I tried for days. I can’t do it. I don’t understand why it doesn’t just snap in…why did they make it this way????

I have to hold the lid shut when I vacuum. I hate it.

Judie,

Read the post by RobertGuyPowell above and ALL the comments (especially mine!). I agree that this is a giant pain and the lid never have should fallen off. Like you I must have banged it slightly before it was fully closed. I did it putting it back on the charger…am a lot more careful now. The good news is that it’s not broken and you don’t have to pay for an expensive repair. Have patience, maybe get a friend to help but follow Robert’s directions. It’s a tight fit and will not go back without muscling it ….a little bit. Stay with it, you can do it!

Yes. Leave the top of canister fully open. Place one hinge into slot and with a screwdriver gently manoeuvre the other hinge into the other slot. Don’t use too much force. Be calm and the task will be successful.
