DC07 cutting out

Hi,
I have a standard DC07 upright which after half an hours use cuts out out and will not start for a good forty five mins, all filters are clean and i suspect there is somewhere a thermal cut out switch. I was wondering if you can tell me where it is situated as im thinking of bypassing it until i purchase a replacement, I take it is possible for one of these switches to develop a fault or is it the motor ?

Many thanks
Shaun

Hello,
I sounds that your thermal fuse is cutting out. By no means try to bypass this thermal fuse. It protects your product from catching on fire. Replace the thermal fuse at a service center. How old is this product?
Okay,

Motor cuts out after 5 mins on dyson vacuum


Hi Peter,

I'm sorry to hear about this. From what you've described, it sounds as if your machine may be overheating due to a blockage - the filter may also need a wash.

To locate and remove any blockages, please follow the steps shown in our online support guide:

http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=4&product=DC07-SY-HEPA_US

In normal use, the filter needs to be washed at least once every 3-6 months, as shown in the video below. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 12 hours for it to dry somewhere warm before replacing it in the machine.

This should resolve the issue, but for any further assistance or advice, please call us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

Best wishes,

Jack

Bypass thermal cut out


Hi Pam,

If your machine seems to be overheating and cutting out during use, this is likely to be due to a blockage - the filter may also need a wash. The easiest way to locate and remove any blockages is to follow the steps shown in our online support guide:

In normal use, the filter should be washed at least once every 3-6 months, as shown in the video below. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 12 hours for it to dry completely before replacing it.

This should resolve the issue, but if you're still concerned, please get in touch with us directly so we can provide some further advice. You can call us free on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

I have a new Dyson upright vacuum. The vacuum will not stay on. I used it a couple of hours ago with no problem, but now it won't stay on. It seems to be sucking and running normally otherwise. What...


Hi Donna, My name is Don.

When you say it wont stay on could you please advise the following:

1. Does it cut out suddenly as you are using it?
2. How long can you use it before it cuts out?

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.

My dco7 quits running after 10 min I wait 15 min to start again


This is a sure sign of a blockage. The motor cuts out because it gets too hot and will start again when it has cooled. Follow the instructions in your user manual for clearing blockages (you can download a copy from the Dyson website if necessary). Make sure the washable filter is clean too (and completely dry before you use it).

Just stopped mid hoovering and now won't switch on!


It is probably a thermal cut-off which is caused by a blockage. The machine will turn itself off before it overheats if it is a thermal cut-off. Once it has cooled down, you will be able to turn it back on again (usually 30 mins - 1 hour).

If the machine doesn't turn on at all anymore, you may need to replace the power switch. Call the Dyson helpline, they will do a blockage troubleshoot and if it's not that, they will tell you where you can find an authorized Dyson repair dealer in your area.

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!

Will be using my dc07 for about 10 mins then it cuts out i leave it to cool then it goes for about 5 mins and carries on like this


There is a thermal cutout on the motor causing this problem because it is overheating. Either it needs the filter replacing and a good blowout with compressed air or the thermal switch is faulty. Try replacing the filters first and if the problem persists it is probably a faulty thermal cutout. Dyson can either replace under warranty or an engineer will call and do a home refurb for a fixed price of £60
