Hi .

Could be the on off switch faulty. Or a internal break in the mains lead this usually occurs where lead enters machine.
Try wiggling the mains lead & see if it starts & stops.

Dyson dc04

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

Like most Dyson vacuums, DC04 is equipped with a thermal cutout, which will shut the vacuum off for protection if it starts to overheat. This could be due to a blockage - the pre-filter may also need a wash. It should automatically reset after it's had at least 2 hours to cool down. You can prevent this from reoccurring following the steps below.

To wash the pre-filter, use cold water without detergent, as shown in the video below. Allow at least 12 hours for both parts of the filter to dry completely before replacing it.

To check the vacuum for blockages, just follow the steps shown in our online Support guide:

If you'd like further advice after giving these checks a try, please give our experts a call directly on 0800 298 0298. We're available from 8am-8pm from Monday to Friday, and 8am-6pm on weekends. Calls are free from UK landlines.

Won't turn off

It's highly probable that the Dyson power switch has gone bad.
You can buy dyson dc14 switch here.
The switch is located right behind the front covering of the neck or handle when you remove the telescopic wand. Please make sure that the vacuum is unplugged before you start this project.

Overheated - won't turn on

I would recommend bringing your vacuum to a local service center. You most likely will not be able to diagnose that problem online.
