There is a red button on the head of your power nozzle. It is the reset button. Try hitting it and see if that helps.

SOURCE: Losing power to stick/floor vacuum

if you have an extension wand, the replacement will cost about $100.00. there is a way to repair both the pwr-cord on the brush assemble and the wand, but it depends on how much damage there is. also you need to check the contacts where the wand connects with the handle,and the prongs on the handle.

let me know if you still need help

SOURCE: My vacuum is constantly shutting itself off. When

It sounds like you have a blockage somewhere and the air is not passing over the motor to keep it cool. There is usually a thermostat mounted either on or near the motor. The blockage can be anywhere from the elbow ( the swivel part of your carpet sweeper if you have a canister vac) up thru the hose.If you have a canister vac, use a broom handle to push through the hose to clear the blockage. DO NOT ! use a coat hanger or anything that will cut or tare the hose. There are electrical wires in it that have 120 volts and causes quite a shock !
.
If you have an upright vac, start with the duct hose that comes from the part with the brush up to the hose and on to the main canister of the vac
If this does not work, take your vac to a reputable vac shop for repair. Hope this helps,
Joe

My dirt devil breeze turbo shut off while I was vacuuming. I've checked 3 outlets and nothing happened


It may have overheated from a restriction or clog. If so it will come back on after it cools down.

Vacuum runs for awhile and then shuts off


This sounds like an overheat issue. I suspect that something has restricted the air flow. Air flow is required for function and to cool the motor. if the air flow is restricted a thermal limiter opens the circuit, rather than have a fire.

My dirt devil keeps shutting off randomly


It's overheating. Empty the cup and replace the filters. There's a breaker that opens up and turns it off when it gets too hot. When it cools down it closes back up and it will run again. It'll argue with you til the end of time or until you fix the problem.

Good Luck

DC07 Shuts Off, won't restart


If it was running for a while... It may be overheating. It has a reset: http://www.ehow.com/how_5943288_reset-dyson-vacuum.html

But maybe just let it cool for an hour or two and try it again?

Dyson cylinder i was sucking a vacuum space saver bag and my vacuum just stopped


Hi Philip,

Your DC11 is equipped with a safety device which shuts the cleaner down if it starts to overheat. It's likely that this is what occurred, as there may not have been enough airflow through the cleaner to keep the motor cool. If you unplug the cleaner and leave it to cool down for at least an hour, you should find it will work again.

If the cleaner still won't run after this time, get in touch with us directly so we can provide further assistance - you can call us free on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Kind regards,

The vacuum stopped running while vacuuming, won't turn back on. Have only had 2 months.


Take it to the local vacuum repair shop. The work cheaply most of the time and know exactly what is wrong. May do it while you wait. Most towns have at least one or two good shops. something like that is just too difficult to diagnose on fixya.

My Rainbow stopped running


I took my unit apart to clean it. I was careful to put it back the same way. Now it won't start.
