A short or restricted brush roll may be causing problem there. Overheating is indicator filters may need replaced.

Why does the suction stop after 10 minutes of use on my Dyson DC43?


Your vacuum may be overheating and shutting off the suction motor. Clean the cyclone assembly and the filters to see if they could be restricting the airflow.

Hose is not getting any suction


when vacuums shut off randomly it usually means they are overheating. this can be caused by a clog somewhere in the line of suction, or, perhaps due to a very dirty filter - either way, the motor is working hard and getting too hot.

try removing all the various tubes and parts along the suction route and checking for clogs (a flashlight might help too). also, have you rinsed out your two pre-filters lately as recommended in the Dyson manual? it might help.

Why does the hose have no suction?


Hi,
Sounds like your machine has a blockage in the vacuum system, and is cutting out from overheating. If you no longer have a manual, which will tell you about clearing blockages, you can download from the Hoover website.
Good luck!

No suction


Sounds like your motor bearings are going bad. This is generally indicated by the motor overheating, and the heat transferring out through the motor pulley, which is where the belt attaches. So, your machine is overheating, melting the belt, and then tripping the thermal cutout. When it cools and you restart it, the belt is no longer functioning due to being melted, and this would make it not pick up on carpet. If you look at the motor pulley and it is turning blue: this is indicative of overheating.
The other possibility is that there is a clog, which is also causing your motor to overheat; so before you throw it away make sure all of your air pathways are clear.
The fact that you've had it 8 years is somewhat remarkable, however, since most vacuums of this type are averaging a 3-5 year lifespan. (And half that for bagless.)
So, check for clogs, and if it's not clogged, you're probably due for a new machine.

The dial regulating suction does not seam to work the vacuum works constantly on the full power and the light indicating overheating stays on.


The dial regulating suction does not seam to work the vacuum works constantly on the full power and the light indicating overheating stays on.
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
This would depend on the brand and model number you have – without knowing the model or brand of vacuum you have it would be hard to give an accurate answer – the over heating light could indicate some type of clog or blockage and may have nothing to do with the dial to regulate the suction – that merely is a height adjustment …. As this does happen to most vacuums that the overheating light comes on – if there is no problem have it looked at from your local vacuum dealer or repair shop would be the best advice that I could give you.
