It's overheating, almost certainly because there's a blockage somewhere. Dysons run quite hot anyway, so it doesn't take much of an obstruction to cause this problem. It may simply be that the filters need cleaning or changing. Follow instructions in your operator's manual for checking for blockages (can download from Dyson website if you've lost the original).

MY DYSON RUNS FOR A FEW MINUTES THEN STOPS AND IS FULLY CHARGED


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

Most Dyson vacuums have a built in safety system that stops the machine if it begins to overheat. This usually happens because the filter needs washing or your machine is blocked. If your machine turns off on its own, unplug it and leave it for at least an hour to cool down. Remember to check the filter and look for blockages before re-starting.

You can purchase a wide variety of high quality Dyson replacement parts for your Dyson vacuum direct from Think Crucial with free shipping and an exclusive 10% coupon for Fixya.com readers, use code: FIXYA10

How can i extend operating time on dc59 vacuum cleaner it only operates for 8 minutes, can i use a second battery?


2nd battery does not seem to be a viable option, reduce the suction power if u require less and it should work for 25 minutes approximately. (hope u know it automatically stops when dust the cup is full)

My new dyson digital slim only runs for 9 minutes and says on the box to run for 15 minutes. Can I return it


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

Good news - you shouldn't need to return your machine! Dyson Digital Slim cordless vacuums have two power levels - high suction power mode for regular vacuuming, and Boost mode, which provides 6 minutes of highest suction power for tackling tougher tasks.

It sounds like you're using your machine set to Boost mode, which will reduce runtime to around 6 minutes. To change back to normal power, hold down the on/off trigger so the vacuum is running. Then at the same time, press and release the round illuminated Boost button on the rear of the machine.

I'm confident this will resolve things - if not, Dyson experts are on hand to help. You can reach the Dyson Customer Helpline for further assistance by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

My vacuums power shut off while vacuuming


Its a good chance that your vacuum motor has either shorted out or become burnt out, this can happen after a few years of use. My only real suggestion, being what i would do in your situation, either contact dyson and try and get another motor, alternatively, contact a 2nd hand motor place, maybe a white goods store, and they may have a vacuum motor to suit as Dyson spare parts can be expensive. I hope this offers some assistance.

Dyson absolute 17 animal smells like its burning when turned on also has terrible noise...nothing wrong with belt already checked it..so what's going on


I had the same problem with my DC15. With the brushes going it smelled like burning hair (bad). I had cleaned the brushes many times and it didn't seem to help. I even took it into a Dyson authorized repair shop and they couldn't find anything wrong with it. As a last resort I called Dyson 866-693-9766 1-866-My-Dyson. I was on hold for about 15 minutes before getting a live person. He had my problem diagnosed in literally 1 minute. I had hair wrapped around the spindle, inside the brush/roller mechanism. He walked me through taking apart the brush mechanism (super simple only using a quarter). There was a TON of hair crammed around the spindles and inside the brushes. All wrapped very tightly. I hung up with him to do the cleaning. It took some time and I had to use tweezers to get inside the rollers/brushes. But I got it all, put it back together (which was really easy) and tested it out. No burning hair smell at all. FIXED!

Dyson DC07 shuts down after 5-10 minutes of use and horrible suction!


I have had this problem on two dysons and have solved it by replacing the so called lifetime pre-filter. The problem is not the washable blue sponge but the material gauze filter in the plastic surround.

To see if this is your problem try removing the whole filter (i.e. the filter with the blue sponge inside - you need to remove both bits not just the sponge).

If you do a quick vacuum test for a few minutes then see what effect this has on the suction.

If you need a new part try somewhere like here (you'll need to chose for the right model) : http://www.espares.co.uk/part/dyson/dc07/p/1086/716/6/420625/875479/lifetime-pre-motor-dyson-.html

As I say this has fixed both of mine.

Sounds like your vacuum is overheating. Check the above.
