Question about Dyson DC15 All Floors - The Ball Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

1 Answer

Dyson DC15 won't power on at all

We tried letting it set to see if it was overheating but it still won't turn on. We did the other outlet and breaker test. It made the noise as if it was powering on for about 2 seconds then quit.

Vacuum stopped working. I think it overheated and I cleaned it out really well. Still won’t start


These days many electrical appliances are protected by a thermal fuse or breaker so overheating will cause the circuit to be broken. The thermal breaker should in theory reset itself when the motor cools but that isn't always the case in practice. The thermal fuse needs replacing when it "blows".

It might be by complete coincidence something completely different but the only way to discover the fault is to dismantle the cleaner and check the circuit with a multimeter.

I was vacuuming turned off won' come back on


Well, Is it a canister vacuum or does it use bags?
Did it turn the circuit breaker off?
If so, reset circuit breaker and try to turn it back on.

Why won't my Dyson DC23 turn on? I have checked the breaker and everything is in working order. It was turning on and off the last time I used it.


Hi Donna.

You've made a good start in making sure the outlet is working.
The manual can be seen here:
Dyson stowaway DC23 Helpline Manual The thing I pick up on in particular is your saying that the unit was turning on and off the last time you used it.

Based on a number of repair and troubleshooting forums, it sounds like the unit was overheating, or close to overheating before. There is a thermal-cut-out switch to keep the unit from overheating to the point of damage, or, worse, starting a fire. If the interlock has kicked in, it can take 30 minutes to an hour for the unit to cool enough to reset the switch.

Common things are common, and rare things are rare. With that in mind, the most likely causes of overheating are:
  1. Blockage somewhere in the vacuum line.
  2. The brush head being jammed / trying to turn when something is impeding it.
  3. Clogged filters.
First rule - unplug the vacuum when working on it. After that,
  1. Remove the various bits of tubing, u-bends, and such, and make sure that they are clear - no paper wads, hair clumps, or such. For long stretches of the tubing, a long bent coat hanger (marshmallow roaster configuration) can be used to gently probe the long stretches.
  2. Try to rotate the brush - remove any obvious yarn, hair, string, rubber bands, etc, built up on the brush.
  3. Wash the filters. They are meant to be washed every few months. If they haven't been, they may be so clogged that the motor isn't drawing in enough air to cool itself.
That should give you a good start. If none of this works, there are toll free numbers to talk to Dyson support in the manual.

Good luck, and Happy Holidays!

DC07 Shuts Off, won't restart


If it was running for a while... It may be overheating. It has a reset: http://www.ehow.com/how_5943288_reset-dyson-vacuum.html

But maybe just let it cool for an hour or two and try it again?

Dyson dc15


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your DC15. This machine is equipped with a sensor which shuts off the brushbar if something jams it. Once you've checked the cleaner head for obstructions, and removed any threads or hair from around the brushbar, you should be able to reset the machine as shown in the video below.

You may also want to refer to our online Support guide:

This should resolve the issue, but if you'd like any further assistance or advice, please give our customer Helpline a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

Dyson D15 shut off while in use


Hi Mary Ellen,

I am sorry to hear you are having difficulty with your DC15. Most Dyson vacuums have a built in safety system that stops the machine if it begins to overheat. This usually happens because the filter needs washing or your machine is blocked. If your machine turns off on its own, unplug it and leave it for at least an hour to cool down. Remember to check the filter and look for blockages before re-starting. For more information on completing these checks please visit:

If you need additional assistance please contact us at 1-866-693-9766 US or 0800 298 0298 UK.

My dyson dc15 beeter bar won't turn on


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC15. Your machine is equipped with a safety device which shuts off the brushbar if something - for example, a rug fringe or a shoelace - jams it. If the brushbar won't rotate, you may simply need to reset the cleaner.

To do this, please follow the steps shown in the video below - ensure you have the machine reclined into the vacuuming position before testing it, as the brushbar will never rotate when the machine is standing upright.

This should resolve the issue, but for any further assistance or advice, please get in touch with us directly by calling free on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US), so we can help.

Best wishes,
