The motor overheats because it get's too much air, usually caused by missing filters, or filters that have large tears or holes.

Dyson smells of burning when switched on then cuts out


It sounds like the motor has overheated and has now been irrepairable damaged.
The motor 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, the moment 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 avaible on eBay for about £25, however repalcing 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.

After using the unit for a few minutes it cuts off.

My vacuum won't pick anything up


Make sure that brush is rotating. Check if you have the right height adjustment. Check for blockage.
You can see instructions how to adjust height and change belt if needed on our website:

Motor overheats and shuts off


The priamry cause of motors overheating is that the filters are not cleaned or replaced frequently enough. Once a motor starts to overheat, it has already been damaged and even after the filters have been cleaned, may well still overheat and cut-out. The motor has a built in over-current trip to protect itself (and you if it seriously overheated). This normally automatically resets itself, however if the motor has just about had it, the moemnt it is switched on, it just trips again.

Motor cut out - overheated


Should reset after an hour or so, clean filters and make sure dry first

No suction


Sounds like your motor bearings are going bad. This is generally indicated by the motor overheating, and the heat transferring out through the motor pulley, which is where the belt attaches. So, your machine is overheating, melting the belt, and then tripping the thermal cutout. When it cools and you restart it, the belt is no longer functioning due to being melted, and this would make it not pick up on carpet. If you look at the motor pulley and it is turning blue: this is indicative of overheating.
The other possibility is that there is a clog, which is also causing your motor to overheat; so before you throw it away make sure all of your air pathways are clear.
The fact that you've had it 8 years is somewhat remarkable, however, since most vacuums of this type are averaging a 3-5 year lifespan. (And half that for bagless.)
So, check for clogs, and if it's not clogged, you're probably due for a new machine.
