You should take it to your local vac shop for diagnosis. It may have a bad breaker, but it could have something else wrong. The way to tell if the breaker is bad without a meter, is to connect the 2 wires together and see if the motor runs. BUT BEWARE, if you do this and the motor is binding, it could burn it up. Again, the best thing would be to take it to a professional.
If your Dyson vacuum is DC23 Motorhead, you should be able to resolve this by checking for and removing any obstructions from the cleaner head, and removing any threads or hair from the brush bar and endcaps. Our Support video will walk you through the process:

I just had the same problem with my hoover duros, the vacuum was running fine but the powerhead kept going off. I would make a sweep with it and powerhead would be running and then next sweep powerhead would shut off. I had tried checking connection and belt, etc. I thought it was the powerhead. But then I found the problem. On the duros there are 2 pieces of wands that hook powerhead to hose on canister. They both connected and clicked in fine but I decided to check them separately. I hooked just one piece to hose and powerhead and then turned it on and then I did the other piece. ta-dah! that's what it was...it was only one section of the wand. When I hooked them up separately, one piece the powerhead worked totally fine and vacuumed like normal. When I removed that piece of wand and tried the second piece (actually the bottom section when both are hooked together) the powerhead did not work at all. So I just need to get a new section of wand. Hope this helps!
some time the overload switch need to be changed. If you dont want to can by pass the reset switch. Disconnect the wire to the reset and marette the wires to the power cord that is connected to the moter. Chris
one) the powerhead is dead legit as in there is no power coming to it or the motor is actually dead.
2) something jammed in the brush and popped the reset button. The reset button is a red button located as your looking at the back of the powerhead on the right side. Usually a red square. Push it and it SHOULD start up again.
That being said, if you have done the reset button and it still does not work, that unit I beleive has either a 2 or 5 year warranty (cannot remember dont have the documentation in front of me) and if it is still covered under warranty for you, take it to your closest Vacuum repair shop. Do take the hose and powerhead with the cannister unit.
You have done very well keeping this appliance working since 1975!!!
I'm not certain you would be able to get replacement parts for this model any longer,
Maybe you will just have to continue with the powerhead only.
Some of these has a reset button to push on the powerhead. Check the plug at the end of the hose handle, is it pushed in, if you push on it and it goes further in, then the tube in the handle will have to be replaced, the holding tab broke off of the tube. Pull the wand off and look at the prongs to see if they are burnt. it they are, then that power cord will have to replace as well as the want.
There is a no filter safety device part #1130912-01, maybe the new filter isn't in quite like it should be or this device has gone bad. Also check the brush roll and make sure it turns easily, if not then that could be the cause.
