The model number is printed with the serial number sticker at the bottom of the fan.

What Are the Features of the Different Dyson Fan Models?
Dyson doesn’t have a conventional tower fan. What they have are bladeless fans.
Dyson’s bladeless fan line is called the Air Multiplier. Thus, the model number of Dyson’s fan line starts with “AM” followed by a 2-digit number like “01” and “02.”
You’ll find the model number of your Dyson fan in the upper left corner of the serial number sticker. It is written in a stylized “AM” on top and the 2-digit number below it.
The first generation of Dyson fans—models AM01, AM02, and AM03—was capable of multiplying the initial airflow 15 to 18 times.
The second generation of fans was released in 2014. It was re-engineered to include a Helmholtz resonator to make it quieter. The second generation of fans also featured an improved airflow.
Built-in electric heater
Dyson fans included a built-in electric heater starting with the Dyson AM04.
A thermostat became part of the new design to control the temperature from the heater function. Despite the addition of an electric heater, it can still be used as a cooling fan.
Unfortunately, early AM04 units were subjected to a product recall because of a fire risk.
Dyson released the Air Multiplier Humidifier in 2015. It features an Ultraviolet Cleanse technology that cleans water by using a stream of ultraviolet light before it is released by the humidifier function.
A piezoelectric transducer at the base of the Dyson fan vibrates the water into small droplets, and then it gets mixed with the air by the Air Multiplier technology.
Air purifier function
A 0.99-micron HEPA filter was added to new models of Dyson fans to trap particles that you can find in the air. The design also includes another filter to trap slow particles.
Dyson released this version of the Dyson fan in 2016.
Discontinuation of initial models
Dyson discontinued the manufacture of the basic fan models in 2020. Dyson decided to expand the models that combined an air purifier and a fan with an optional heater function.
Thus, if you’re looking for a basic Dyson fan on the Dyson website, you will not find any. Instead, you’ll find air purifiers—which function as both a fan, an air purifier, and a heater.
Advanced models feature a monitoring function that tracks indoor air quality. It scans the air for particulates and VOC (volatile organic compounds).
VOCs are organic compounds with low vapor solubility and high vapor pressure. Most VOCs are man-made chemicals like industrial solvents, chlorination by-products, or components of petroleum fuels.
How to Register my Dyson?
All Dyson appliances should be registered through the Dyson website.
If you’re wondering how to register your Dyson, we’ve got the complete steps here. These steps apply to any Dyson appliance—whether it’s a Dyson Air Multiplier or a Dyson vacuum.
Registering your Dyson
Open your browser and type the address below on your browser’s address bar. If your browser allows it, you can simply click the address below, and it will open the Dyson Product Registration page on a separate tab so you can follow these steps and complete your product registration at the same time:
Fill in all the required information on the online registration form. Any required information is marked with an asterisk.
Dyson's Mailing List
Before continuing, you get the option to register for the Dyson mailing list. This section has a label that goes “Want more from Dyson?” and you get a check box at the bottom. Ticking the check box automatically registers you to Dyson’s mailing list, and you get notified whenever Dyson has exclusive offers, discounts, event invites, and product development information.
Once you’re done with this section, click on the black “Save & Continue” button at the bottom right corner. Take note that as soon as you click the “Save & Continue” button, you will receive a welcome email from Dyson.
Dyson's Registration 'Welcome' Email
You will receive this email whether you ticked the mailing list box or not. Two important pieces of information on this email are:
- the “Activate your Warranty” link
- and a link to all four ways that you can contact Dyson support (including their operating hours) in case you encounter a problem with any of your Dyson appliances.
If you don’t see this email, check your spam folder or whitelist the email address “[email protected]”
Product Serial Number
Once the next page completes loading, you will get several boxes where you can enter the information of your Dyson appliance.
Enter the serial number of your Dyson appliance in the format that is provided. The serial number of your Dyson Air Multiplier can be found at the bottom where you found the model number.
Dyson serial numbers are written in the same format that the online form is formatted. Thus, you wouldn’t be able to enter it the wrong way, or you wouldn’t be able to enter the wrong information on the form.
Completing the Registration Process
Fill up the date that you purchased your Dyson appliance.
Click on the black “Complete Registration” button at the bottom of the online form to complete the registration process.
If the serial number that you have doesn’t fit the online form, you might be a victim of a fake Dyson. Read the succeeding sections on how to find out.
Advantages of Registering your Dyson
Registering your Dyson gives you access to personalized guides that are written for the Dyson appliance that you own. The website also lets you easily view all of your Dyson products (including serial number and model number) from a single location.
Thus, you don’t have to look everywhere for the information on your Dyson when you need it—like looking for the serial and model number when you need to replace a component.
The website also tracks your warranty so that you can easily know if your Dyson still qualifies for the warranty if you encounter a problem with it.
What is the Warranty of my Dyson?
Since we’re talking about Dyson warranties, here is some quick information on Dyson warranties per product.
Dyson simplified its warranty system by classifying its appliances under two warranty groups—the 2-year warranty group and the 5-year warranty group.
You can find out which warranty group your Dyson product belongs to when you register it on their website.
What is covered by the Dyson warranty?
Dyson warranty covers repair and parts replacement if the appliance is still within warranty, and if it was used the way it was intended to be used.
Dyson repairs only use genuine Dyson parts. If Dyson can no longer repair your Dyson appliance—because a needed part is out of stock, for example—then Dyson will replace it.
This is where the email that you received during online registration becomes important. The contact information included in the email is one of the avenues where you can claim your Dyson warranty in case you need it.
Keep in mind that Dyson's warranty coverage and terms can change anytime. Thus, it is best to check their website and register your Dyson as soon as possible to find out what warranty your Dyson is eligible for.
How to Find Out if You Have a Fake Dyson?
Any Dyson appliance is on the expensive end of the spectrum. Thus, many consumers look for discounted Dyson appliances. Unfortunately, the constant search for low-priced Dyson appliances has created a market of fake Dyson products.
Here are some of the ways you can tell if a Dyson is fake or not.
Dyson power cable
A genuine Dyson appliance has a power plug that is easy to identify. The Dyson logo is engraved or clearly printed on the power plug of a genuine Dyson appliance.
Each plug is made differently based on the market where the Dyson appliance is sold. Thus, a Dyson sold in the US market will have a different power plug from a Dyson that is for the UK or Japanese markets. Either way, the power plug will have a distinct look and will be compliant with any local policies regarding power plugs in the market where it is available.
Fake Dyson appliances have poor quality manufacturing finish. Logos will look misaligned, there are scratches on the finish, or there are uneven edges.
The surface of a fake Dyson will not feel as smooth as the original when moving your finger across its surface.
Bad packaging and documentation
A fake Dyson will always have bad packaging, unlike the premium packaging that genuine Dyson appliances come in.
Fake Dyson appliances will also have typos in the documentation that comes with the product. The documentation on a fake Dyson is on cheap paper. It will also look like it was not made by a printing press.
The model number on a Dyson Air Multiplier, Dyson Purifier, or Dyson Humidifier is at the bottom of the base with the serial number.
