Cher,
You probably will need to replace the switch that is inside and underneath that foot pedal. If you update your post with the make and model of your machine, we can tell you where you can order parts for it, or you can take it to a local repair shop to have it repaired. Should not be real expensive to repair. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: the red light on my hayden 3600 vacuum won't go off

I have a 6000 and it does the same thing. I simply unplug the unit and plug it back in after cleaning the filter and dumping the cannister. That seems to reset the warning system.

    Dyson DC27- machine stays on with red button but beater brush won't stay on while vacumming low carpet.


    Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

    There are a number of reasons why your brush roller has stopped moving. General maintenance to your vacuum is crucial and will help it work at peak performance.

    First things first lets focus on the brush roller. Unplug the vacuum and turn it on its side. Look for any noticeable clumps of debris or hair strands that may be caught in the brush roller. Remove these obstructions, probably best to do so with a scissor if it's hair or long pieces of carpet fibers. After removing the debris try manually rotating the brush roller to uncover other hidden clogs. Another thing to take note of is the condition of the bristles on the roll itself. Are they loose or worn down? These are signs that your brush roller is in need of replacing.

    While checking out your brush roll you might as well take a look at your vacuums belt. Your belt should be replaced about every three months. After regular usage, the belt will stretch out, lessening the tension on the brush roller. Lesser tension diminishes the brush roller's turn rate and speed. If the belt feels loose then it certainly is affecting your vacuums suction as well as your brush roll not moving at all.

    No power what do I do when I stopped and tried ti start again no power . Emptied it and cleaned filter but still not working


    All vacuums generate heat and some have automatic cut off switches when the vacuum does overheat. When this happens the manufacturer does not want you to just turn it back on, they want you to know there was a problem and to let it cool down. They often do this with a restart button. Having to press a restart button is supposed to make you think a bit more about the problem and, perhaps, let the motor cool down before restarting the vacuum. The button is often small and red.

    It will not stay on once I take my finger off of the red start button. I have thoroughly cleaned the unit and filter - so there is no blockage


    Most likely the ratchet mechanism on the switch is faulty.

    Switches are available if you search oneBayfor a few pounds, and if you've reasonable DIY skills and tools, it's fairly easy to do.

    Have a look athttp://www.dysonmedic.com/DC07%20Folder/DC07%20Motor%20change.htmlwhich has some great info.

    Dyson Animal 17 - brush stopped turning


    The belt will stop itself from spinning if you accidentally picked up a shoestring or vacuumed the edged of a carpet and the carpet got caught. To have the brush spinning again, simply step on the front of the machine, pull back the handle, turn the machine on with the red power button and press the gray button next to the red button - that's the ON/OFF button for the brushbar. If it doesn't spin, press and hold the button down for 10 seconds. If it still doesn't work, call the Dyson helpline, they'll have you open up the cleaner and inspect the belt and brushbar motor and if all else fails, they'll refer you to a local repair dealer in your area to fix it.

    Bosch vacuum Motor turns off after a few minutes


    It sounds like you have a motor protection fuse that resets after an overheat/cooling cycle.These work the same as a circuit breaker in your house with the difference being they can reset themselves.The Bosch will also shut down if there is insufficient airflow and I would check your filters first.1) Pull the filter and let the machine run.Do not pick up debris when you operate without a filter-it will be drawn straight into the motor.If it runs fine without shutting down, all you need to do is change your filter.If it shuts down again check the external hose for any blockages.Also check the throat from the powerhead for any blockages.If you continue to have the same problem then you will need to replace the fuse because at this point you have eliminated all the other likely problems.Good Luck-Scott
