I have had the same problem. It takes sometimes up to an hour to reset. It is thermal link that can't be manually reset. It does it on its own after it cools down.

One thing that also helped me was cleaning the flat filter that is located just above the cannister. My suction improved greatly once I cleaned that.

Wont turn on, How do I check to see if it is the switch?


First off, the manual for this model can be found here (
https://www.dyson.com/medialibrary/Files/Dyson/Support/downloads/US/Floorcare/manuals/dc17_opmanual_usa%20pdf.pdf ) Between the manual, and elements that run across a number of Dyson uprights, here are a few things to try. To be thorough, I'll start with the hopefull way-too-obvious.
Unplug and re-plug to the wall outlet, or plug into another one. If it's a GFI plug, or one hooked to a wall on/off switch, reset the plug / flip the switch (or plug something else in to verify that there's wall power)

Make sure the dust bin is empty.

Dyson systems have sensors for blockage and brush obstructions to keep from overheating or burning out components. If the system overheats, it'll shut down, and not re-engage until it's cooled. If that may have happened, best to check, rather than turn it back on and re-overheat it due to the blockage still being there.

Go through the parts of the clearing-blockage pictures on page 9 of the manual. If there are blockages, the system will shut down to keep from overheating.

Check the filters. If they look dirty or dusty, wash them (as covered in the manual) and try again.

Detach the tube/wand from the back. Detach the wand and look through it for blockage. Either look down the tube, or stretch it out long and you should be able to see through the translucent walls, for blockage. If you find it, i've found a wire coat hanger bent into marshmallow-toaster shape, with a small hook bent into the end with pliers, to be pretty good at snaking from the ends of the tubes to grab wads of paper or lint (that's what usually ends up clogging my DC07 when it happens).

For the switch itself, there's a fair amount of disassembly to getting to the guts of the switch proper. IF you go that route, make sure it's unplugged first. Try just cycling the switch a dozen times or so and feel for if you're getting a distinct click from the toggle. Feel if it moves easily, or might feel jammed or impeded. if so, look in with a flashlight and see if there is any obvious lint or debris keeping the switch from moving easily.

Good Luck!

Central vac not sucking


Check for a plugged tube in the wall by listening to the motor when it's running. If it sounds like it's running too fast then there's an obstruction. If it sounds ok, then there's a disconnected tube somewhere in the system.

No suction on my dyson dc27


Most common cause of loss of suction are objects being lodged. You can isolate the area pretty simply. Put your hand to the tube on the detatchable handle. If there is suction there the obstruction is at the base. To clear this turn the vacuum over and lay it down. There is a suction hose that attaches just behind rotating sweeper. Disconect it, and check for debris. Also look in the sweeper compartment for hair, and other clogs. Re-Attach, to see if this remedied the problem.

If the loss of suction is somewhere in the detachable handle. What i have done is disconnect it from the unit... Take a wire hanger or similar and carefully run it through the hose. Be careful not to puncture the hose.

Vacum shuts off


If you have BISSELL vacuum, some of our models have a brush reset. Here are the instructions to turn it back on:

If something becomes lodged in the foot and the

brush shuts off, turn the cleaner off and unplug

from the outlet. Remove the obstruction. The

brush will automatically reset when the cleaner
is plugged in and turned back on.

Additionally, you could have dirty filters that are activating a thermal protector switch that shuts the vacuum off if the motor becomes too hot. If this is the case unplug the vacuum, clean any filters, clogs, or obstructions and wait 30 minutes for the unit to cool. Then plug the unit in and it should work. I hope this helps.

Powerforce stops;have to wait 30 min or so for it to come back on -low power remains on -- there is no clogging.


What is happening is the vacuum is overheating so the thermo fuse shuts i down until it cools off.

Does it have good sucking power? Check and clean all the filters. Especially the external hepa filter I beleive all these models have. You can even remove the external hepa filter on the side and see if it runs then. If it does you can bet its clogged and is restricting the motor exhaust.

Vacuum shoots dirt or whatever it has just vacuumed out the back of the vacuum. I checked and cleaned the filter and the vacuum bag and it still leaves dirt behind the vacuum.


Good morning,

If you've checked both the bag and the filter, the next step would to check for any clogs.

I will detail what you will need to do below, or you can always reference your Owner's Guide (check: How to Check and Clear Hose Blockages)
http://www.eureka.com/service/manuals/77418_r2.pdf

Step 1: Remove hose from hose retainer on the base and check suction at end of hose - if little or no suction, check dust cup. Empty if needed. If no improvement, proceed to step 2.
(Make sure you turn off the switch and unplug the unit before proceeding to step 2)

Step 2: Remove electrical cord from cord hooks. Disconnect the clear tube by unscrewing the 2 screws, then lift away from cleaner. Check for any obstructions that may be in the tube or hose. Any obstructions can be removed by using a blunt instrument to clear the tube or hose (I will sometimes you a bent hanger or a retractable pointer). Flexing the hose may help loosen the blockage. After clearing blockage, reverse above steps to reassemble unitpcfloy86_0.jpg.

I hope this helps. If so, please give this solution a thumbs up!
Have a good day

When i start the vacum the brushes trun for about 3-5 seconds then stops. the vacum still runs,its just the brushes stop turning, what should i do?


If your machine has no power or interrupted power, please check the following:


- Make sure the power cord is plugged into a functioning outlet to check for power.
- The handle may not be installed properly, causing a loss in the power connection. Remove the handle completely. Slide the handle back into place on the lower section of handle and tighten the screw.
- With the machine turned off and unplugged, check the pre-motor filter and the Airetight™ HEPA filter for debris. Reduced air flow from dirty filters or clogs will put greater stress on the motor, increasing the possibility for overheating. The pre-motor filter is located underneath the canister of the vacuum in the pull out tray labeled "filter". This may be hand washed in cold water with mild detergent. Reinstall this filter when it is completely dry. The Airetight™ HEPA filter cartridge needs to be replaced and cannot be washed. This is located on the side of the machine inside the filter grill.


CLEARING CLOGS

NOTE: Ensure the machine is turned off and is unplugged before checking the following.


DIRT CUP AREA
- Empty the dirt cup. Remove the lower portion of the cup and clean the screen and check the center tubes for dirt accumulation.
- Check the dirt inlet. This is the opening located behind the canister and is only visible once the canister is taken off the machine.


UPPER HOSE
- Detach the hose from the machine by twisting the hose collar counterclockwise. Push a broomstick into the hose to push any obstruction to the end of the hose where it can be removed.
- Check the clear diverter area at the back of the machine. When the hose wand is removed from the base, the diverter should be in the up position. If a clog is visible near the diverter, remove the divertor cover by removing 7 screws and clear the obstruction.
NOTE: Be careful not to dislodge the gasket.


LOWER HOSE
- Recline the machine back and roll it over so the backside is facing up. Remove the bottom 4 screws from the diverter cover to loosen, and straighten the foot hose. Look through the hose for obstructions. Push a broomstick through the lower hose to unclog this. (Any obstruction should exit through the suction path at the brush roller).


NOTE: The Healthy Home Vacuum is equipped with a Thermal Protector feature to prevent the motor from overheating. If the motor becomes too warm, the thermal Protectors will activate and the machine will shut off automatically. If the Thermal Protectors activate, please do the following:


- Turn off and unplug the vacuum. Thermal Protectors will reset automatically in approximately 30 minutes.
- Clear any clogs.

Clogged hose...


Hi!

Low suction, poor pickup, or no suction may be due to a clog in the vacuum cleaner. If you notice a change in the sound of the motor or a reduction in the spinning action in the Dirt Container, check for clogs. Unplug cleaner from electrical outlet. Empty Dirt Container. Check Upper Tank and Louvers for build up or clogs. Check to make sure Louvers are installed correctly. To unlock the Louvers, grasp the rim and turn toward the left. Pull straight down to remove. If the Louvers are missing or not locked into place, check and clear the tube in the center of the Dirt Container. Remove the Twist ‘n Snap Hose from the vacuum by turning to the left. Check the Suction Inlet, Hose and Hose Wand for clogs. Remove any clogs from the hose using a long, narrow object. Check the Foot Hose for clogs. If needed, remove the screw attaching the Hose Wand Base to the vacuum. Straighten the Foot Hose and unclog with a long, narrow object. If the clog persists, then check the Rotating Floor Brush the Air Passageway for obstructions.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

I just got done fixing a unit with this problem. After a bit of time, dirt will build up in the lower unit and clog the vacumm tube. Symptoms: No air flow coming out of the vacuum. Motor is hot. Stuff is spitting out of the front Motor wouldnt start it had over heated. You should remover the roller and clear the clog by hand. Let the motor cool down and it should start once it had cooled down.
