Re: sucked up some leaves and now dyson will not turn on

Machine is probablyclogged. Vac is probably turning off because it is overheating.

Dyson DC07 overheats and shut off.

what you need to check foirst is all the filters and then check the vac is sucking normally as they over heat if their are any blockages anywhere so remove the funnel and clean out all the little holes use paint brush then check the filters on the bottom part of vac then get back to me ok

Dyson dc28 toubleshooting wand

Can you disconnect the hose from both ends of the unit?
I generally push a broom handle down a clogged hose, and second broom handle if needed!

You can also attach a shop vac hose to the shop vac exhaust and blow it out using the exhaust of the shop vac.

Maybe you sucked up a dryer sheet or plastic bag. Empty the unit completely and look at all the possible portals where items have to travel through.

My dyson hose sucks good but, when i put handle down, it won't **** but brush does turn

I just had the same problem....suction from wand, but no suction from soleplate, the brush bar spins. Did all the troubleshooting steps on but they didn't says need to take to repairman, being a diyer I went to search engine. I didn't find a fix, however I found one appears the vac can get stuck in floor mode or in between modes....the dial on top on dc07 ....selector of floor or carpet..try pushing it back and forth to see if that puts it in carpet mode...check for suction or try vacuuming...if that doesn't work, looking at vac from behind vac on the right hand side is the selector dial..on top of bottom portion of vac.....with vac in upright position, recline it as if about to vacuumn floor...look down at selector area should be able to see a rectangular type button exposed ..push this to reset may have to push it a few times...then try vacuumniing.....I finally had suction from soleplate!! Another tipoff to this problem is my selector dial would not stay in place would pop I to carpet by itself, but only halfway....fro a long time my vac would work but not very well...had to go over same area.4-5 times..What a workout! The first time I contacted dyson via tele the rep had me remove some stuff and I was able to look at area below selector...what I saw was two holes, one hole was only over the other hole half way...hence at that time I had only part suction since holes were not aligning properly....I read somewhere as a further tip to get suction to engage, while vac is reclined step on front edge of vac head it said you'll get more suction that way, I haven't tried that, but thought it may help someone

I have the dyson dc 27. On the bottom left back side of mine there is a circle, and ball inside of it. I turned it on and pushed the ball and it started working again. Sometimes it doesn't cover the whole and stops sucking air through it.

Dysin vacuum blows air instead of sucking it!

If it is blowing air, then it is still clogged up somewhere, you didn't give your model number, but some of these have removable covers on each side and on the back. Also make sure that all covers are back on securely.

Dysin vacuum blows air instead of sucking it!

Dysons aren't supposed to clog up, but they do. There a number of ports you can open to see if there are clogs in any of them. Usually a clog is why it will blow air and debris out instead of sucking. You just need to find it.
