You wont believe it, but that problem is very common and it is only the LG vacume cleaner that im seeing with this problem . Cant offer any solution like relocating Temp. Th/stat on motor to another position as this is non standard. (do not bridge out as motor does get warm).

Powerhead on vacuum shuts off after about 5-10 seconds of use. What is cause?


There are several possibilities, some of which you seem to have already checked.
1) The filters are clogged. System will cut out quickly if there is little or no airflow, to prevent overheating.
2) There is a clog somewhere besides the filter. Run through the checking for clogs steps in the manual, page 6. (
https://www.dyson.com/parts/u/user-guide/medialibrary/9118C278B029492DA662A45A70F187B0.ashx )
3) There is a small, Hall-Effect sensor near the filter that detects that the filter is in place and seated properly. If it is faulty, or the filter ISN'T seated properly, it cuts the power. Replacing that is beyond the scope of what I can safely advise on.
4) There are temperature sensors for the unit. If it's too cold, or too hot, no power. Too hot means the system thinks the battery is overheating, which can be dangerous. If the temp sensor is bad, that could do it too. This is also past what I can really help you on.

Good Luck!

How can I get my DC26 working?!


They can cut out due to overheating. Although you say you have 'cleared' the filters, they should ideally be washed as they can clog with very fine dust and cause overheating due to lack of air flow. Once a machine cuts out due to overheating it can take maybe half an hour (or longer) to cool down enough to work again.

No power. The motor does not turn on


Most Dyson cleaners have a thermal cut-out to protect the motor from overheating in the event of a restriction to the airflow. So, if anything causes it to overheat, it will switch off. If this happens, leave the cleaner switched off for at least two hours, as it will not start again until it has cooled down.

The most common cause of a cut-out is that the cleaner has a blockage or the filter needs washing. A high room temperature may also trigger it. Before you continue vacuuming, ensure the filter is clean and there are no blockages. You can download the user guide at www.dyson.co.uk/support/. Just click on 'Get Expert Help' then 'Using my Dyson product' then 'User Guide'.

If this does not solve the issue you may have a bad switch or motor.

It stopped working while vacuuming. Still getting power, compressor still working but not sucking.


I'm an owner of an LG LuV200R vacuum cleaner. After years of use it started having an overheating issue where the suction motor stopped after only a few minutes use. The brush motor and compressor motor still worked. After cooling down with power off for at least a few minutes suction motor worked again but quickly shut down. Here's how I fixed mine:

First make sure to clean all 3 filters and let dry for 24 hours if cleaned with water (recommend, but compressed air works good too). A clogged HEPA filter could cause overheating. Check all air passages and hoses for blockages. I've always maintained/cleaned my machine so I had to go a little deeper...

On the control board there is a semiconductor which screws to a right angle aluminum heatsink. See attached picture. My screw was slightly loose; loose enough for there to be a tiny gap between the metals so little heat was dissipated from the semiconductor. My infrared thermometer showed 260°F while running. I tightened the screw and running temp went down to 160°F. Once reassembled the vacuum has yet to overheat and shut down. It's a great vacuum so I'm glad it's working again.

To access the control board you need to remove the front facing plastic motor housing located below where the cord is stored. ALWAYS unplug unit before opening. 2 screws face the rear of unit, (now tilt top of vacuum down all the way) 2 screws face the front at the bottom, and 2 more right above HEPA filter (remove HEPA filter). There is a nut behind culprit screw so you may need to remove the control board attached with 2 screws. I recommend using compressed air to clean off control board if dusty, and check for cut/burnt wires. I had a darkened wire which I guided away from control board at reassembly.

A dab of locktite wouldn't be a bad idea on the loose screw/nut. Hope this helps others.

My DCO7 keeps cutting out, all filters are clean, it was my mother ln laws she gave it to me, I thought I could solve the problem, there is no suction from the hose, I am now frustrated. Regards steven...


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.

Vacuum will run for 5 minutes and shut off,


Your Dyson is designed to cut out if it becomes overheated, and it then takes about half an hour to cool down properly. If you don't resolve the problem, it will soon cutout again. Clogeed filters or other blockages are the usual cause of cutting out, but there are others, for example, incorrectly fitting valves, or broken belt. You need to do more cleaning. Follow the step by step instructions for your model, which can be found here.

You will be following a path for solving cutting out when you are using the machine, and I would be surprised if you can't fix yours.

Dc07 cuts out


Hi!  This is the sign of a machine that is overheating, and almost certainly is caused by a partial blockage.  You need to check all the pipework and make sure the washable filter is clean (if you wash the filter, use only clean cold water, no detergent, and let it dry in a warm place for at least 12 hours, do not force-dry). I hope this helps.  I value your feedback, so please remember to rate this response. Good luck!

Dyson


the automatic cut out switch on the motor needs replacing when the motor gets hot this switch comes in and stops the motor from overheating when the motor cools down the cleaner will work again and cut out again when the motor gets hot if it is not replaced it will eventually burn the motor out after the switch has been replaced both the filter and cyclone need to be cleaned on a regular basis or the same will happen again
