When we run vacuum cleaner continuously, it gets hot.
So after each 3-4 minutes cleaning, stop it and remove the dust. This will cool the motor and in this way we can use it for a long time. So use vacuum cleaner with breaks.

I have a Windsor Sensor s12 and power shuts off after 5 min. of vacuuming. I'm wondering if it's overheating of if there is some other sensor that causes it to shut off.


Your Sensor most likely has an internal heat sensor that is shutting off the motor. Some vacuums install an external heat sensor with a reset button that you must push to re-start the vacuum. If your model does not have an external reset button it is most likely a sensor inside the motor. If it is defective the motor must be replaced to solve the problem. But first make sure the overheating is not being caused by a blockage somewhere or the bag is too full. Air must pass completely through a vacuum starting at the floor where it picks up the dirt through all the canisters, filters, bags, etc. and then is exhausted from the vacuum. Any restrictions or blockage can cause the motor to over heat.

Vac runs for about 15 mins. then stops


The unit is not getting the proper airflow and the motor is overheating to shut down.

You should check/clean out the filter in the dirt chamber there. If the filter is more than 1 year old, you should replace the filter.

I have a DC04 and when i switch it on it works for 10-15 mins thens stops working for about 20 mins then starts working again.


Your vacuum is overheating - that's why it cuts out. You need to check everywhere possible for blockages and also make sure the washable filter is clean and dry. If the machine has been run without the washable filter in place, then the exhaust filter will be clogged and will have to be changed too.

Dyson DC07 Vacume cleaner trips on thermal after 10 min motor not excesive hot resets after 15 min has been doing this for the last 3 mths. Could it be faulty thermal or motor overheat how can I check...


first, check both filters on that unit. the premotor filter on the side, and the hepa filter underneath the canister. if those filters are clean move through the suction channel and look for a clog or obstruction. also make sure the canister is clean. I have never seen the thermal go bad on those machines (not saying it cant happen though). it sounds like the filters are dirty or you have a clog. its also a good idea to change the pre motor filter if its older than a yr. the foam is fine but the white material behind the foam gets clogged frequently. let me know if you have any other questions and if this doesnt fix the problem.

Turning off / overheating?


Reading of another poster's similar issue caused me to realize there was indeed a third filter in this bagless vacuum cleaner. It was saturated with thick dust that was difficult to remove. Cleaning it cured the problem and I will know better next time to read my manual when I purchase a new item.
I do agree with other readers though that this particular vacuum is not savvy when it comes to picking up dog hair. It would rather push it around for a while then do the job right.

THE VACUUM CLEANER WORKS FOR 6-7 MINS THEN CUTS OUT, THEN AFTER A WHILE STARTS AGAIN FOR A FURTHER 6-7 MINS THEN KEEPS REPEATING THIS PROBLEM


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 dc07 works fine for about 5 to 10 min then turns itself off leave it for 10 min or so then it will work again for a bit then does it all over again. help please thanks


Your machine is overheating. This is usually caused by the dust bin being too full, your filter is long overdue for a cleaning, or there is a clog in the machine. Usually a cheap fix regardless... Wash your filter, check the removeable parts for blockages, and empty your dust bin.

Miele white star canister vacuum - won't turn on, but isn't clogged


Miele S251i Plus Bagged Canister Vacuum
Miele white star canister vacuum - won't turn on,...
Hi,

I have the above canister vac, which after my son tried to vac the stairs, it rolled down the stairs on him, but still worked, after turned off/on. Then after turned off maybe 10-15 mins., stopped working when we tried the switch. My father in law is our fix it guy, but still having a problem with the switch. Is there a wiring guide we could look at?

Thank you!

ALevy


I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
You can try to call the factory for the Miele S251i schematics / wiring diagram @ the phone number and website listed below or I put a few pieces of information listed below that might help.
1. The vacuum cleaner switches off automatically
A temperature limiter switches the vacuum cleaner off automatically if it gets too hot. Some models have a warning light (triangle) which comes on to indicate that it has overheated. Allow the appliance to cool down for approx. 30 mins. and remove any blockages to the air path.
2. The "Change dustbag" indicator stays on even when a new bag has been inserted
To ensure the dustbag change indicator gives a correct reading, lift the floor nozzle or power head off the floor slightly to prevent the vacuum created in the suction tube from influencing the reading.
3. The exhaust filter indicator is red
Change the exhaust filter and then press "Reset" to switch off the indicator light.
