Possible reset on Thermal Cut-Off

After cleaning scatter rug, machine turned off. OK. thermal cut-off. However, now it will run for 1 second, turn off, then in a few seconds, will run for 1 second and turn off. etc. Do you know if there is a reset button on the thermal cut-off and where is it located? Before taking the motor out of the unit, thought I would try to find out if it has a reset button or can the thermal cut-off be replaced and where do I find one?

Was using ok, turned off for a while, would not restart.


If it does have a thermal cutout it should have reset within half an hour. Could be that the long operation caused motor to over heat and damage some of the windings.

Also make sure that the motor is receiving power. And check for the condition of the brushes - they may be worn and not making contact. on the commutator.

Turn vacuum on it run for a few seconds then stops power on light is blinking


Whats your model number? A lot of machines contain a circuit that cuts the motor power when it gets to hot. Try cleaning/replacing filters and a fresh bag.

My problem/// cleaner turns on for a around ten (10) seconds and then shuts off wait a few minutes and it will turn on but goes off again at ten (10) seconds?????


These units have a automatic resetting thermal fuse near the motor to help to protect it from burning up by running too hot. This will need to be inspected and tested to see if it's holding it's proper temps., if not it will have to be replaced. There should also be an inspection of the machine to detect what was causing the reset to shut down that quickly, so that can be repaired as well.

How do i replace dc17 thermal switch. i have


I don't believe there is an external thermal reset. It is most likely built into the motor.

Reset switch



There is no reset button it as a Thermal Cut Off



This vacuum cleaner has a special thermostat that protects the cleaner in case of motor overheating. If the cleaner suddenly

shuts off, turn the switch off and unplug the cleaner.

Check the cleaner for a possible source of overheating such as a blocked hose or clogged filters. If these conditions are found, fix

them and wait at least 30 minutes before attempting to use the cleaner. After the 30-minute period, plug the cleaner back in and

turn on the switch. If the cleaner still does not run, then call 1-800-282-2886 for customer assistance

My Rainbow E Series Vacuum won't turn on at all after it just worked fine


Allowing to sit on water pan for only 3 hours is not going to kill your Rainbow by itself. If there is no more information to this issue than what you described, the problem could be the motor is going bad and the thermal cut off is tripped. Possible reason it didn't do it while you were running the unit, is the motor cooling fan kept the temperature inside the motor just below the tripping point and then when you turned the machine off, this allowed the temperature to creep up past the limit and trip the thermal cut off.

Water will not dispence while cleanning


Before using tool
It may be necessary to remove air from
the system ("prime the pump") so the
clean solution will flow to the tool. Follow
these steps:
1. Attach tool to hose and turn the carpet
cleaner ON.
2. Put the tool on a hard surface or
against your hand to block off the suction.
3. Wait a few seconds (can take up to
15 seconds). Then squeeze the trigger
and begin cleaning
