What you describe is typical of a machine that's overheating. This is almost always caused by a blockage. Check the machine thoroughly for any blockages, including any filters, and my bet is that you will find something that shouldn't be there that needs removing (or possibly replacing). I hope this helps.  Good luck!

My dyson dc11 has just stopped after sucking space saver bags


Hi Philip,

Your DC11 is equipped with a safety device which shuts the cleaner down if it starts to overheat. It's likely that this is what occurred, as there may not have been enough airflow through the cleaner to keep the motor cool. If you unplug the cleaner and leave it to cool down for at least an hour, you should find it will work again.

If the cleaner still won't run after this time, get in touch with us directly so we can provide further assistance - you can call us free on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Kind regards,

I changed the motor in my Dyson Animal hoover and works fine but after 15 minutes it stops as if it was turned off, if i leave it for a period (2 hrs)it will start up again and work for a further 15 mins...


Hi there

All Dyson vacuum cleaners are fitted with a thermal cutout, which will switch off the motor if it becomes too hot. This is normally caused by a lack of airflow to the motor, i.e caused by a blockage or a dirty filter.

I would make sure that you have completed the full blockage procedure and have thoroughly washed the filter and see if this helps.

Kind regards

Power cuts maybe after 10 mins use, then after switching off for an hour or so, it works again! repeat.


I would think that it is probably a motor going bad and tripping the overload switch. After the overload resets, it will run again. Is there a chance that the motor is still under warranty? Some vacuum maker warranty the motor for longer than the rest of the vacuum (Dirt Devil is 6 years on the motor) so hopefully they will fix it for free. One other thing, should be obvious, but I'll ask anyway -- the brush is turning properly and the vacuum has suction when it is working, right? if something is jammed that could overload the motor as well.

Water doesn't come out


hi this is very common problem what you need to do is lie the vac on its side then where the water comes out of the little jets at the bottom of the vac these are usually blocked and will need cleaning using a pin to poke through should solve the problem.
If the blockage isnt their then you need to undo the screws on the bottom and keep working your way along the detergent/water lines and keep cleaning them out you will find a blockage along the way.

Try using hot water first empty out all the detergent and just use very hot water (not boiling it will melt the pipes but hot water nearly boiling will do) Keep runnig hot water through the system by pressing the button you press for it to spray the water do this for about 15 min and keep swapping the water for hotter water as it starts to cool doing this 4 or 5 times might solve your problem if not get the tools out and start looking for the blockage.

What happens is when the vac is standing for a while the detergent turns to a gell causing a blockage.

What they dont tell you in the user guide and what they should tell you is that after every use empty out all the detergent and then run warm water through the vac for about 15 min doing this will ensure you have all the detergent out and will make sure you have no further blockage.

Everyone who buys one of these types of cleaners has this same problem so you are not alone.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

After a few minutes the hoover stops. After waiting a few minutes it runs again but the problem keeps repeating


You haven't stated the exact make and model but in general what you're experiencing is a safety feature: your machine is overheating and cuts out to prevent a fire.

Check that the bag isn't full and also check the moving parts for anything which is preventing proper operation. I can't give you specifics as you haven't even said whether it's a cylinder or an upright cleaner.

DO NOT continue to use your vacuum cleaner until you know what the problem is. In it's present state it's a fire risk.

Over heated hover
Posted by blade123 on May 29, 2008
Hi there, I’ve got a upright Hoover and it cuts out after about 5 mins I think it’s over heated but if i leave it for 5 mins it works again but cuts of again how can i fix it?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It is possible that you my have a heat sensor, but as far as what you described you need to change both belts, the brushroll belt and the power drive belt as well and @ the same time. The average belt change is every 4 to 6 months on the vacuum. Does it stop completely or is it just the belt problem. Or #2 is the vacuum giving off a burning smell other than the belts and if it does it could be the motor. Other wise , please call the factory or a local Hoover warranty station in your area. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
