Dyson won't turn on. Cleaned filter and still nothing

Is the motor blown? I just plugged it in and it made a quick power on noise and then nothing. Now, nothing...

    I've just had the same problem with my DC07. Changed the fuse and then tried to switch it on. It made a brief power up sound which then rapidly faded. It sounds like a motor problem. Would like any advice on fixing this.

Sounds like the belt broke. Bad news regarding all Dyson's. You can't replace just the belt your self. You have to purchase a new belt assembly which includes the gears. And it wont be cheap. I would call it a design flaw but i am sure that dyson calls it a profit scheme.

Ball makes a clicking noise every 0.25 metres. Please help


Please read this answer all the way through there is something that may be relevant (strike out 'important') at the end !

Maybe it's this
"clip that holds the filter in place and the locating lug of the access flap to gently rub together as the ball rotates and create a slight clicking noise as the appliance is moved around (though is not routinely noticed due to the motor noise)"
(from Fully Cleaned Serviced Refurbished Dyson DC25 Animal Ball Vacuum Cleaner )
stop press - I just saw this - if you do not have proper Dyson brand HEPA filters - see end of answer - you may get a loud clicking sound....
The manual tells you about removal and cleaning HEPA filter - the All floors version has one as well)
Otherwise I can only refer to Dyson support, there are various ways of contacting them given at the top right of this webpage Support forDC25 Multi Floor
(the user guide manual is downloadable from this webpage)
Sounds to me as if maybe there is an irregularity on the ball that is contacting the body/ball housing every time the ball does round....unfortunately this makes the ball diameter ~8cm which too small.

My dyson d14 animal keeps cutting in and out. When it's on, the hole above where the filter is, keeps making a loud suction noise and it won't clean up hair and dirt.


Vacuum Cleaners require AIr-Flow. Your machine is not getting any air-flow. The noise you hear is a valve opening up to prevent your machine from overheating and burning out the motor.
You probably have an obstruction somewhere in the machine. Dysons are kind of known for that in the vacuum cleaner world.
Check all air channels and clean them out. If that fixes the problem you still might have issues that caused it to clog up.

I posted the part second because it takes 24 hours to complete it.
Be sure you wash your Washable Pre-filter. It needs to dry for 24 hours. Never put it back in the machine wet.

Once it is completely dry reinstall the pre-filter and your machine should be back to normal operating functions.

Let me know f this helps.

Fully charged, filters cleaned, vacuum keeps shutting down in and then starts again only to shut off again. the 6 minute time limit is not used up.


Your battery is losing voltage too quick. It has probably developed a 'memory'. Dyson claims that their handheld has the best suction out of all the handhelds out there. In order to maintain that claim the circuit board will shut off power to the motor when the voltage drops below adequate charge for full suction.
We need someone who can teach us to bypass that part of the circuit so it won't cut power to the motor or you need to get a new battery.
Shorting the battery like an Aircraft battery then re-charging won't fix it.

I HAD MY DC17 VAC FOR 3 YRS NOW NO PROBLEMS AT ALL, I REGULARLY CLEAN THE FILTER LIKE IT SAYS BUT LATELY I'VE NOTICE THAT THERE SEEMS TO BE A LOT MORE COLLECTION ON THE TOP OF THE FILTER WHEN I'M DONE...


The vac is over heating. First, you should try a new filter. Also, keep in mind that after cleaning the filter, make sure that it fully dries. Using a wet or damp filter clogs it quickly. Second, turn the vac upside down and make sure that the roller is fully cleaned and free of hairs and strings. Afterwards, with the vac upside down, quickly power on and make sure that the roller spins and listen carefully for noise at the roller. There may be something stuck inside. If it doesn't spin, verify that the belt has not slipped off or broken.
Good luck.

On turning on different noise then noticed smell of burning then just stopped working and no power since. DC 07 Dyson.


Unfortunately your motor had burnt up..most times this is due to not cleaning or replacing the filters...the filters get dirty and the motor gets no airflow to cool it....very common on dyson vacs

Dyson dc14 died, no power after burning smrll


It sounds like the motor has overheated and has now been irrepairable damaged.
The motor has a built in over-current trip to protect itself (and you if it seriously overheated and caught fire). This normally automatically resets itself, however if the motor has just about had it, the moment it is switched on, it just trips again.

The primary cause of motors overheating is that the filters are not cleaned or replaced frequently enough. Dont be fooled by Dyson's "lifetime filters". They need to be regularly cleaned and replaced when necessary.

Replacement motors are avaible on eBay for about £25, however repalcing one requires good DIY skills and tools.

Have a look at www.dysonmedic.com and see if you feel you can tackle it yourself. If not, take it to a repair shop or call the Dyson helpline.

Today i was hoovering, and then my dyson just cut out! i left it a few hours then went back to it, it gave a little noise when i switched it on, then again i tried but it failed to come on! ive even...


It looks like you need a professional repair. If you're really lucky this may just be a break in the flex, or the switch has failed - both relatively cheap and simple to sort out. More likely, though, is a problem with the motor (carbon brushes worn out perhaps) - bound to be more expensive, if only because there's more labour involved. 
Sorry not to be able to offer a quick fix!

Dyson animal


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.
