My canister motor shuts off after a few minutes and a red light comes on


hat's the thermal cut off circuit. If the motor gets to hot it trips and shuts it off. When it cools down it will turn on again but it is generally an indicator of one of the following; the cone filter needs changed or the inner filter ring that sits above the motor inside the unit is shot. One is an easy change the other requires dis-assembly, better carried out by a vac tech if you aren't comfortable taking it apart. In the meantime remove the cap out of the top of the vacuum, that will let it exhaust heat better but I strongly recommend getting that filter ring changed.

My Rainbow E Series Vacuum won't turn on at all after it just worked fine


Allowing to sit on water pan for only 3 hours is not going to kill your Rainbow by itself. If there is no more information to this issue than what you described, the problem could be the motor is going bad and the thermal cut off is tripped. Possible reason it didn't do it while you were running the unit, is the motor cooling fan kept the temperature inside the motor just below the tripping point and then when you turned the machine off, this allowed the temperature to creep up past the limit and trip the thermal cut off.

My Henry Hoover cut out and will not work. Emptied bag and replaced fuse but no success.


If no burning or smelling, maybe nothing to do with motor, and if caused by the safety cut-out, it will need about an hour to cool down, and then check filter, bag, and drop coin through hose, pipes and the floor tool, to check for blockages and to stop it running hot. Damaged cable, worn carbon brushes, broken electrical rewind electrical contacts or even the printed circuit board (later models) are the most likely causes.

Electrical supply cuts out after a few minutes use


Sounds like the motor is overheating and cutting out. The motor has a protection device that automatically resets when the motor cools down.
The most common cause of overeating is blocked or dirty filters. Don't be fooled by Dyson's "lifetime filters". They need to be cleaned and/or replaced regularly.
If after cleaning/renewing filters it still does it, you need a new motor as the trip device is not available separately. New motors can be found on eBay quite cheaply but it requires some special tools and good DIY skills to do it. Have a look at www.dysonmedic.com to see if you you think you can do it, but if not it's time to call a repair shop or the Dyson helpline.

The vack just stopped working no lights or anything was using it for a couple minuits and it just stopped


Sounds like your machine may have overheated and tripped the motor protect fuse. Does it turn back on after an hour or so?

Check your hose for blockages. Disconnect the hose from the machine and get a small marble and see if it will pass from one end of the hose to the other. If there ism you may need to pass a broom through the straight end to try and dislodge.

Make sure the you don't have a full bag. Also check the motor filter inside the bag cavity to check for blockages.

If there are no blockages and the bag is findm you may need to refer to a Service Center. It's a reasonably new model, so check your warranty papers.

After using the unit for a few minutes it cuts off.


The electric motor inside your Dyson has a built in over-current trip to protect itself (and you if it seriously overheated and caught fire). This normally automatically resets itself, however if the motor has just about had it, next time it is switched on it just trips again.

The primary cause of motors overheating is that the filters are not cleaned or replaced frequently enough. Dont be fooled by Dyson's "lifetime filters". They need to be regularly cleaned and replaced when necessary.

Replacement motors are available on eBay for about £25, however replacing one requires good DIY skills and tools.

Have a look at www.dysonmedic.com and see if you feel you can tackle it yourself. If not, take it to a repair shop or call the Dyson helpline.

On/off switch doesn't work. No power. The last few times I used it, kept cutting out but now won't switch on at all. No blockages.


As it was cutting out before it stopped working all to gether, it most likely isnt the switch but the motor.

The motor has a built in over-current trip to protect itself (and you if it seriously overheated and caught fire). This normally automatically resets itself, however if the motor has just about had it, the moment it is switched on, it just trips again. Eventually, the motor wont do anything.

The primary cause of motors overheating is that the filters are not cleaned or replaced frequently enough. Dont be fooled by Dyson's "lifetime filters". They need to be regularly cleaned and replaced when necessary.

Replacement motors are avaible on eBay for about £25, however repalcing one requires good DIY skills and tools.

Dyson dc07 cuts out after a few minutes ?


There is a cut-out device on the motor which senses when too much current is being drawn, which in your case sounds like it is tripping because the motor is developing a fault and will likely fail completely soon.

New motors can be bought on eBay for about £25 but you'll need good DIY skills and tools to do the job.

Have a look at www.dysonmedic.com and see if you feel up to doing it yourself.

Moter cuts out after a few minutes


The motors have a "trip" to protect them, and you if a serious problem caused a fire, which can be tripped if the filters are blocked and causing the motor to overheat.
The filter at the top of the cyclone (the bit on top of the dust container) should be cleaned regularly (more often than Dyson suggest), and under the dust container you may not have noticed there is another filter - called the post motor filter. This isn't mentioned in the user book but does get clogged after a few years of use. It can be removed and can be replaced - eBay has companies that can help.
If all filters are clean and okay, it is probably the early stages of complete motor failure. If you're good at DIY, the site www.dysonmedic.com has some good info on how to change a motor. Again, eBay will help find a motor.
If you dont fancy having a go, either ring Dyson or a local vacuum repair company.

My Vacuum keeps cutting off after just a few minutes of use


You probably have a clog that is overheating your motor and tripping the thermal cutout. Check all air hoses and inlets for clogs. If all of your air pathways are clear, you most likely have a bad motor bearing, also indicated by a high-pitched squealing sound. If that's the case, it would require a motor replacement; which is not usually economically feasible.
