It looks like you need a professional repair. If you're really lucky this may just be a break in the flex, or the switch has failed - both relatively cheap and simple to sort out. More likely, though, is a problem with the motor (carbon brushes worn out perhaps) - bound to be more expensive, if only because there's more labour involved. 
Sorry not to be able to offer a quick fix!

Just stops working during hoovering


Hi, it sounds that you may have a fault in your cable sometimes the wire inside the cable gets broken and only connects now and again when in the right position. I remember reading some where about this person had a dyson and had to get the wire changed for a second time as this was the fault. They put it into a dyson repairer to get the job done as you have to remove the motor. I no that's what you need to do on a dc07 animal. If its not the cable then it could be the temp cut out switch my first motor would go for so long hoovering then just stop and you would have to wait till it had cooled down then it would go for another short time. I had to get a new motor that time but it was covered by dyson . When the dyson man arrived i told him it was cutting out and he just fitted a new motor. I have since just replaced that motor myself rather than buy a new dyson. Always remember to remove the plug from the socket when doing repairs to your hoover.

My vacuum was making a funny noise and had a bad smell


Hi John, it's Jack at Dyson.

Most Dyson vacuums include a thermal cutout which shuts the machine down for protection if it starts to overhead. You should find it will run again after it's cooled down for around 2 hours.

This is likely to have been caused by a blockage, or because the filter is overdue for a wash. To prevent this from happening again, please follow the steps shown in our Support guide: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc08/dc08-standard/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-won-t-switch-on-or-cuts-out/my-machine-cut-out-whilst-i-was-using-it/how-to-wash-filters/check-the-floor-tool

In normal use, the filter needs to be washed at least once every 3-6 months, as shown in the video attached. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 12 hours for both sections of the filter to dry completely before replacing it.

If you'd like some further help from our experts after you've given both of these steps a try, please call the Dyson customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 01-475-7109 (IE).

I was using the Dyson, turned off to empty tank, will not turn on again, I have checked outlet it is ok. Does it have some kind of safety if it gets to hot.Thanks


hi.
there is a thermal fuse built into the motor of all dysons that will cut the power if the motor gets too hot.
when the motor cools down again, the fuse will normally reset itself.

try the hoover again after a few hours and see if it works again.
also change the fuse in the plug to check that that has not blown

No power to Dyson checked plug & fuse both ok any Ideas


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

If the machine cut out during use this will be the thermal cut out. This is caused by the motor becoming too hot during use, due to a blockage or a dirty filter. full details on how to resolve this can be found on our website at www.dyson.com. Simply click on Support and you will find all the info you need.

If the machine has cut out and wont switch on again after being left for a few hours, it sounds like an engineer will be required to inspect and repair the machine. You can contact our Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Kind regards

After hoovering yesterday my dyson ball wont stand up right.


solved this today by folding the upright part back as far as it would go, and wiggling it a little. It clicked back into place.

Just stopped mid hoovering and now won't switch on!


It is probably a thermal cut-off which is caused by a blockage. The machine will turn itself off before it overheats if it is a thermal cut-off. Once it has cooled down, you will be able to turn it back on again (usually 30 mins - 1 hour).

If the machine doesn't turn on at all anymore, you may need to replace the power switch. Call the Dyson helpline, they will do a blockage troubleshoot and if it's not that, they will tell you where you can find an authorized Dyson repair dealer in your area.

On button won't stay on


easy fix, unplug the machine sit in front of it. put your thumb on the on/off button and push down and slip your thumb off of it as fast as you can so it pops real loud. Do this ten times and then plug back in and see if it works. ( this came from talking with Dyson people) Hope it works for you. They said this will reset the machine. also acts as a warning that your filters most likely need cleaned.
