The thermal cut-off in your machine is activating - this indicates that you have a blockage or a clog in the machine. The machine will turn itself off so that the motor doesn't overheat - the machine will cool off and you'll be able to turn it on after 30 mins to an hour.

Call the Dyson Helpline for a thorough blockage check - they know what they are doing.

My dyson DC 59 Motorhead works fine for a period of time then just quits. The run time seems unusually short and does not slowly lose power but stops abruptly. What is the problem?


Modern lithium Ion rechargeable batteries don't slow down as they discharge, they run full appliance and then just boom they are dead. You need a new battery

This vacuum has the power cutting off after a couple of minutes but after a waiting period it restarts. Any ideas


It's an overheat protector for the motor. Clean all filters thoroughly, it should help.

Why roomba clean for 2 minutes then returns to dock?


I suspect the battery is about dead. It keeps coming back for more power.


Run it away from it's charger, force it to run until it dies. Put it onto it's charger and let it charge a long time (Solid green light). Then run it again till it dies and repeat. This will perhaps force the battery to develop a longer memory

Scooba beeps 4 times


  • Lift Roomba off the floor and place it in the center of the room and restart the clean cycle.
  • If Roomba did not resume cleaning, lift Roomba and turn it over.* Inspect the Side Wheels for dirt or obstructions.
  • Test the Side Wheels by pushing them in and out and making sure they rotate freely. Place Roomba in the center of the room and restart the clean cycle..

    Fully charged, runs 2 minutes and stops


    You have dead nimh (nickle metal hydride) batteries2_bing.gif.
    You will need a replacement. You can test for this by removing the battery and holding the power button for 15 seconds. This will restart the charging cycle as if the battery were new. Try Ebay for better pricing.

    I have a Roomba, it runs for a few minutes and stops, the battery is fully charged. Any ideas?


    The battery isn't able to fully charge, it just retains the proper voltage, but lacks the amperage to run because the first and last battery in the pack are dead. Battery replacement time. Try Ebay for best battery pricing.
    BTW I use the nicad pack.

    I think the battery is not holding its charge anymore. The red (charging) light does change to green but only runs a few yards on leaving the dock.

    Dyson won't run


    Could be overheating. I know that there is the cylinder where the dust goes, but after that there is a foam filter between that and the actual engine. You will need to make sure its cleaned out.

    im not 100% familiar with your model, but my one had alot of advertisement with it when i bought it telling me that every 6 months i needed to take this foam pad out, wash it out one way, then the other, then leave to dry for 24 hrs.

    Remove the cylinder and work backwads towards the engine, there may even be a little sticker to tell you where it is, and how to remove it (seriously i have 2 stickers on my vacuum)
