What does a Dyson warranty cover?

A Dyson guarantee covers the repair or replacement (at Dyson's discretion) of your Dyson machine if it is found to be defective due to faulty materials or workmanship within the guarantee period.

If any part is no longer available (e.g. particular colour variations), Dyson will replace it with a functional replacement part.

Your statutory rights are not affected by this guarantee.

What isn't covered by a Dyson guarantee?

Dyson machines are engineered and constructed for continual high performance in normal domestic settings. If a Dyson machine is used in the way it's intended and it breaks down within the guarantee period, it's our responsibility to repair or replace it.

There are, however, some circumstances in which a Dyson guarantee doesn't cover the repair or replacement of a machine. These aren't hidden in the small print. Here's what isn't covered

  • Normal wear and tear, including parts that might wear out over time (e.g. fuse, belt, brush bar, batteries, filters etc.).
  • Accidental damage
  • Damage as a result of use not in accordance with the rating plate.
  • Damage caused by not carrying out the recommended appliance maintenance.
  • Removal of blockages. If your machine becomes blocked, please refer to the Dyson Operating Manual for details of how to unblock it. If you are unsure, our customer support helpline can be reached on 0878200066 from within the South Africa or via email on
  • Damage from external sources such as transit, weather, electrical outages or power surges.
  • Failures caused by circumstances outside of Dyson’s control.
Faults caused by:
  • Negligent use, misuse, neglect or careless operation of the machine;
  • Use of the machine which is not in accordance with the Dyson Operating Manual;
  • Use of a Dyson machine for anything other than normal domestic household purposes in the country in which it was purchased.
  • Use of parts not assembled or installed in accordance with the instructions of Dyson.
  • Use of parts and accessories which are not Dyson Genuine Components.
  • Faulty assembly or installation (except where carried out by Dyson).
  • Repairs or alterations carried out by parties other than Dyson or its authorised agents.
