It should still be under warranty so take it back to the suppler, distributor or Dyson if you are near.

I have a cordless vacuum cleaner that is intermittently turning off and on continuously even though the trigger is pressed down. What could be the problem?

Could be a faulty switch, internal wiring or electronics. Might also be the motor is running hot due to insufficient cooling air or a fault and a protection device is cutting the power to protect it.

Only a deeper investigation will discover the cause.

Power nozzle will not continue to run. I replaced the auto lock wand and it does run but not continuously/

If the motor is running intermittently you might want to check out the brushes for wear and bad contact against the commutator.

I bought my Dyson DC59 4 months ago and it recently started coming on and off intermittently every 5 seconds. What is wrong with it?

I don't think your machine has a bag, so I would guess you have a clog somewhere in the unit. If no clogs turn up, check for a bad connection in what drives your unit. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Agitator bar on UH4700RM wind tunnel doesn't turn

Unfortunately you machine is a re manufactured vacuum and has a 6 month warranty. (The RM suffix indicates this ) You should take it to your local vac shop and let them look at it. It's probably a minor issue.

My dirt devil keeps shutting off randomly

It's overheating. Empty the cup and replace the filters. There's a breaker that opens up and turns it off when it gets too hot. When it cools down it closes back up and it will run again. It'll argue with you til the end of time or until you fix the problem.

Good Luck

I have a iRobot 4150 and have recently experiencing performance issues with the vacuum. Recently, it started stopping about a minute after you turn it on. I thought maybe the battery was the issue, but I...

Yes, a common issue with the cleaning head module, chm. You will need to diassemble the Roomba and remove all debris from the CHM. Also take a look in its gear box.
