This is usually a sign of overheating caused by a blockage. You don't tell us what make and model of machine this is, but basically you need to check all possible places (usually the User Manual tells you where to look) and clear out any blockages you find. Another possibility is a fault in the flex - after a while a wire inside the flex may break, even though nothing is visible externally - if this is the case, you can get the motor to switch on and off by waggling the flex.
I hope this helps. If not, give us more details (including make and model) about the circumstances under which the problem arises. Good luck!

I have a dyson DC 3.5 model 11-6300 d1 it will run about 30 sec then shut down the green light will keep flashing whenever I tried to run it then shut down


the flashing light is to tell u that there is something blocking the suction of machine , most times its a full dust cup or hepa filter blocked this if allowed to continue will over heat the motor so it shuts off to prevent motor damage

The motor keeps stalling. The motor keeps cutting out


Do the brushes turn fairly easy if not you may have dirt stopping it from working. A plugged hose will do it as well. These will cause it to over work. There should be a filter as well that needs cleaning.
Some units have a shut off when the dirt bag is full as well. and you could have a burnt out motor which does not work right as well.

Keeps shutting off


You cant clean the HEPA filter.. only the blue washable pre filter.

Sounds like the motor is dead or atleast on its way out.

If you visit http://www.sparesaver.com/help-and-support/dyson-section/dyson-technical-advice-450/ they have alot of info on repairing dyson cleaners AND they sell the parts, cheapest ive seen online.

Hope that helps

Why does my dyson slim dc18 keep shutting down, even though i keep it clean. Filters area is clean and all others have been properly blown out with air from a air compressor. It will work for about 5-10...


Maybe your motor is going. Here's a link to a site that talks about motor failure and replacement in a DC07 (not DC18). I don't know exactly what the odor smells like but maybe you can see if you have any of the other symptoms. Good luck!

Shuts off when suction starts


Hi there. In Panasonic vacuums2.gif, there is a thermostat protection on the motor. It will automatically shut off the motor if there is no airflow through the motor. This is typically caused by a clogged hose. Typically, if your dust container is that full, there could be backup in the hose. Or the dust container being too full could also or otherwise be the problem. Check your hose for blockage, let the machine cool off, it should start up again

take the brush roller completely out of the vacuum then plug it in .you should be able to hold on to the ends of the brush roller and turn the brush freely if not the brushroller is froze.try taking the ends off the brush roller an see if you have carpet strands or hair built up around the spindles

Temperature light keeps coming on


The whine tells you taht the bearings are bad. Now they may be putting a drag on the armature and causing it to shut down after getting hot. You will have to replace the motor.

Vacuum shuts off


It sounds like the hose from the bottom part is plugged. The motor has a high temperature protection that will shut the motor off if it overheats but will come back on once it cools. The motor will overheat if any restriction of airflow occurs. If the overload sensor reacts too many times, it will eventuall start to shut off before it should, so you should address the problem asap. Check the area behind the roller and the hose leading up to the connection to the attachment hose for blockage. Also, make sure you are not setting the machine height adjust too low. This will make the bottom plate sit down too close and cause a restriction in air flow to the motor.
