You can reset your Dyson fan after you have replaced the filter using the remote control that came with the fan or the Dyson Link mobile application.
The filters on Dyson fans remove impurities from the air in your space by passing the circulating air through them repeatedly.
You need to replace these filters from time to time and when you do, you also need to reset your Dyson fan. You can do this via the remote control or the Dyson Link mobile application.
What do the filters in Dyson fans do and why are they important?
Dyson uses both HEPA and activated carbon filters in their fan designs. These filters capture microscopic particles like smoke and gasses like carbon dioxide, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and larger particles like hair, skin cells, and insect wings which may be present in the air that you are inhaling.
When your Dyson fan circulates the air in your space, this air passes through the filters and all of these impurities get stuck in the filter and, in turn, get systematically removed from the air. This prevents you from inhaling these particles and leads to much cleaner, higher quality air.

Since these filters are specifically designed to capture particles in your air, it makes sense that all of these particles will start building up on the surface of the filters inside the unit over time, as more and more air is circulated by the fan.
This is why you need to replace these filters from time to time when this dirt build-up gets to be too much. When your filters become too dirty, this can block the airflow through the fan and lead to unpleasant odours or even operational issues for your fan.
To replace the filters, you will simply need to switch off your fan, remove the old filters, and place the new ones in their place.
Your Dyson fan will not automatically know that you have changed the filter when you do, so you need to reset the machine every time after the filter has been changed or replaced with a new one.
There are two main ways to do this. You can reset your Dyson fan after you have replaced the filter using the “oscillation” button on the remote control or by using the “Filter Management” setting on the Dyson Link mobile application.
Why it is important to replace the filters on your Dyson fan
When the filters on your Dyson fan become too dirty or even get damaged over time, you need to replace them.
Dirty air filters will slow down the airflow of your fan, because as impurities and particles build up on the surface of the filter, there will be a smaller space for new air to travel through.
This also makes easier for the filter to purify the new, incoming air, which means that the entire fan needs to work harder to get the same amount of air circulating around your space.
Changing your filters when your Dyson fan is due for a filter change allows the Dyson fan to work optimally and will ensure that you get all of the benefits that the HEPA and activated carbon filters have to offer in terms of removing potentially harmful particles and pollutants from the air in your space.
How to reset your Dyson fan after you have replaced the filter using the remote control
If you want to reset your Dyson fan after you have replaced the filter, the simplest way to do this is to use the remote control that came with your Dyson fan and to follow these steps:
- Step 1: Find your Dyson remote control
- Step 2: Make sure that you are pointing the remote control directly at the Dyson fan
- Step 3: Locate the “Oscillation” button in the bottom left corner of the remote control. This button should have two arrows pointing in opposite directions
- Step 4: Press and hold this button. You should see a countdown with a picture of an air filter appear on the display screen of your Dyson fan. Hold the button in until this countdown is complete
- Step 1: Open the Dyson Link mobile application
- Step 2: Select the settings menu in the top right corner of the screen
- Step 3: Click on the “Your machine’s settings” option
- Step 4: Navigate to and open the “Filter Management” menu under the “Air” heading
- Step 5: Press the “Reset” filter button for the filter or filters that you have replaced
