For Supersonic™ hair dryer Professional edition owners, please contact us at 1-866-861-2565.

Machine is working normally

This is completely normal.

The machine will run very slowly when in idle mode to keep air flowing over the thermostat so it can constantly regulate the temperature of the air.

There is no safety concern.

If the noise is intrusive, switching the machine off at the wall will stop the noise, or altering the position of the product in the room might make the noise less audible.

If pressed, it should be stated that the noise is caused by some of the electrical components emitting a frequency which can sometimes be heard as an electrical humming noise. This is not specific to Dyson products.

Has this resolved the problem?

Your machine may be hot to the touch if it has been used as a heater in the last couple of hours. Please do not touch the sides of the loop amplifier until it has cooled.

Ensure the correct button on remote is being pressed

1) On/Off

2) Oscillation

3) Airflow speed

4) Temperature control

Has this resolved the problem?

Select a different option on the remote

Point the remote directly at the front of the machine while pressing a different option.

Do the controls on the remote itself work?

Test the remote buttons

Airflow can be set by the airflow buttons on the remote.

Airflow can also be set on the machine. Use the middle control toggle to adjust the speed of the airflow.

Do the other functions on the machine work?

You might need a replacement part.

Paper test

The fan has a strong, smooth airflow when switched on. The airflow should be strong enough to lift a sheet of newspaper past 45 degrees.

Hold a newspaper approximately 2 meters (6' 6'') away from the product with the airflow control dial turned to maximum.

Does the newspaper lift beyond 45 degrees?

Do not use polish or detergent on any part of the machine.

Wipe the machine

The following areas should be checked and cleaned to maintain the machine's performance.

Main body

Loop amplifier

Has this resolved the problem?

The heating elements turn on one at a time and so this is to be expected when the machine first turns on.

Run the heater for 1 minute at the highest temperature setting.

Has this resolved the problem?

Retry machine at 32°F/0°C

On first use, the heater will default to a temperature 1°C/33°F higher than the current room temperature.

Thereafter, the heater will remember the last target temperature set.

The heater will not operate unless the target temperature is above the room temperature.

Please retry the machine at temperature setting 37°C/99°F.

The heater will not operate unless the target temperature is above the room temperature, or the target temperature is set to 32°F/ 0°C for cooling.

Please retry the machine at temperature setting 32°F/ 0°C.

Has this resolved the problem?

Retry machine at 37°C/99°F

On first use, the heater will default to a temperature 1°C/33°F higher than the current room temperature.

Unplug the machine for at least 5 seconds or until the LED goes out.

Plug the machine back in and retest.
