Keep the cap dry
Keep the cap on the water tank dry when you run a Deep clean cycle or fill the tank. It contains power connections and should not be washed. If wet, wipe thoroughly with a dry cloth. Make sure the cap and connections are completely dry before refitting.
Using your machine
Achieving your manual humidity setting
If your machine’s LCD shows this icon, you're being advised to manually increase the airflow to eight or above. This may help you to reach your desired humidity level faster.
Other steps that can help include:
• Moving your machine away from air vents
• Keeping your machine away from high traffic doorways
• Using a lower setting for heating or air conditioning units.
Understanding your screen's icons
The icons on the LCD screen show you which pollutants are present, reporting them in real time. They also tell you about humidity and filter life, and will alert you when it's time to run a Deep clean cycle.
Indoor Air Quality Index (AQI)
Shows your air quality over the last 12 seconds, or over the last 24 hours.
Particulate matter PM2.5
Your machine is sensing microscopic particles smaller than 2.5 microns, including smoke, bacteria and allergens.
Particulate matter PM10
Your machine is sensing particles smaller than 10 microns, including pollen, dust and pet dander.
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)
Your machine is detecting gases released from a wide range of sources, such as aerosol sprays and air fresheners.

Relative humidity info screen
Shows the current humidity level in your room.

Increase your airflow
If you see this screen, increase the airflow to eight or above. This may help you to reach your desired humidity level faster.
Understanding pollutant levels
When a pollutant causes the air quality to drop, the relevant icon will appear on the LCD screen. The coloured bar on the left of the screen will indicate how much of the pollutant is present, and will continually update as your machine purifies the air.
When the green section of the coloured bar is highlighted, your machine is detecting a very low level of the type of pollutant.
When the yellow section of the coloured bar is highlighted, your machine is detecting a moderate level of the type of pollutant.
When the orange section of the coloured bar is highlighted, your machine is detecting a high level of the type of pollutant.
When the red section of the coloured bar is highlighted, your machine is detecting a very high level of the type of pollutant.
When the dark red section of the coloured bar is highlighted, your machine is detecting an extremely high level of the type of pollutant.
When the purple section of the coloured bar is highlighted, your machine is detecting a severe level of the type of pollutant.

Maintaining your machine
Running a Deep clean cycle
The monthly Deep clean cycle eliminates bacteria and limescale throughout your machine's water system. Your machine's LCD screen and the Dyson Link app will let you know when it's time. You'll need 150g of citric acid, then just follow the steps in our video guide.
🛈 We recommend only using citric acid when running a Deep clean cycle. It's a safe, natural cleaning agent, and is widely available.
