The circuit tracks should be getting cut somewhere in between some where so it leeds to this problem.

    the tube would have got clogged, so the engine had to work harder. This led to the engine getting hot. I guess they have a sensor of some sort, and when it gets too hot, it shuts itself down. So if this happens to you, here's what to do.

    1 - Look for the clog in the hose and remove it.

    2 - Wait. According to Dyson, it can take a couple hours for the vacuum to reset itself. There is no reset button, so you just have to wait for it to cool down.

Hi, I have had my Dyson DC07 Animal vacuum for 5 years. Recently, it turns off by itself while vacuuming. Perhaps it is overheating. But this does not seem normal. It is not being used as an industrial...


Try this:
I don't know how many filters the Dyson has, but my bagless has three.
Take all of your filters out and inspect/clean them. Many vac's have thermal overload switches in them that can only be reset by them cooling. This is probably what is happening. One of the filters is not allowing sufficient
air to pass.

The motor on my Dyson Animal DC07 is getting very hot. I've always kept the filters and such clean. Is there any maintenance I am to be doing with the motor?


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

From your description of the problem, it sounds as though there is a lack of airflow to the motor which is caused by a blockage in the machine or a dirty filter.

To check your machine for a blockage, please refer to your user guide or visit the support section on our website at www.dyson.com. It is worth checking that both parts of the filter have been thoroughly cleaned.

If you are still experiencing difficulties, please contact our Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Kind regards

Dyson DC07 motor does not come on. Hoses are


depending on where you take the unit. the motor is about $60 or $70, shop time at a vac shop is going to be about $40 to $50. The whole thing will run you about $150. you can go to the Dyson web site and find a service center.

Obstruction in the hose?
Your vac has developed a hairball possibly.... when a piece of flexible media ie.... cardboard, plastic etc... gets lodged in the hose, and begins collecting hair & dust to the point it no longer has enough draft to pull debris from the floor.
Here is a video that you may find useful

PS I Thought DYSONS were guranteed to NOT lose suction? What a RIP!

My Dyson animal vacumn refuses to pick anything up, even a tiny piece of lint?????? It was working fine for awhile. I paid $500.00 for this cleaner at Target because I have 4 inside cats.


remove the vacuum debris recepticle and pull up on the filter cover..
You can:
1. quick fix..use a SHOP VAC and vacuum it thoroughly replace
2. wash and dry thoroughly and replace should fix problem
...I have a spare filter to use while other is drying..you can purchase off the Dyson site..
Caution be sure filter cover snaps shut before using

Is the noise a loud screaming or a grinding/vibration? The screaming is an air flow problem and you'll want to check your hoses are clear and all the seals are tight. The grinding is an issue with the roller/belt/clutch/motor/housing. From what I'm reading, both problems are common on the Dyson animal.

First, check all of the ports, there are various covers you can take off to see if there is a clog, also check the hose for a clog. Make sure all filters are clean out. The worse case would be a motor problem.
