The machine runs for brief periods, then shuts itself off. If it is allowed to sit for several minutes, it runs again, then shuts itself off.


the motor is heating up to much and the cut out switch is kicking in. You need to check the the motor filter, and worse case you may need to new motor..

The powerhead cuts in and out on power as you vacuum with the brushes. Works ok with suction only. Have replaced both wands and still cuts out, Can it be the powerhead connections? Help? TJZ


had the same problem with mine check all the prongs on the 2 wands and on the power nozzle and on the handle itself you will probably see that one of them is discolored or burned looking you will need to replace that section, I had to replace one of my wands, and then a second time I had to replace the hose section with the handle attached.

Is there a reset button on the dyson


The short answer: No. The longer answer begins with a question: why do you need to know, what's happened to make you ask? Most Dysons have a built in cut-out system that stops the machine if it gets too hot. This usually happens because the filter needs washing or the machine is blocked. If your machine turns off on its own, unplug it and leave it for at least an hour. The cut-out should reset itself when it's cool enough.  Remember to check the filter and look for blockages before re-starting.  If the cut-out does not reset itself, you may need professional help.

Just stopped running while vacuuming


When a vacuum cuts out while working, it usually indicates overheating. Most have a thermal cut-out, which will reset itself if given time to cool. The cause is usually a blockage of some sort.

You need to determine if this is a problem with the hose or the unit. I would recommend plugging my hose in the wall sideways. This should make your central vacuum run continuously. If the unit doesn't cut on and off it is the hose. If it still cuts on and off it is probably the relay.

Vacum just shut off when vacuuming


Could be clogged. Check hose check sole plate if its an upright, check handle of hose if its a canister type or check the filter inside the bag/bin area i.e the white or black filter either behind the paper bag or cyclone- if its clogged with dirt then the vacuum may have functioned its thermal cut out - which can take up to 45 minutes until the motor cools down and resets itself.

CUTTING OFF


Ok What is probably causing the problem is an internal error inside the vacuum. What I recomend you to do is take it back where you bought it and tell them what ever is wrong with it.

Thermal senser


If it is going bad, it will cause the motor to shut down, replace it then you will know if that is the problem or a problem with the motor itself.

It just turned off


Could be the cord, overload protector for the motor, or the motor itself.

Can be various reasons, the cord is bad, problem with the switch. Also there is a protector for the motor or the motor itself. The 1st thing I would check would be the cord.
