I spent 4 years working on Dyson v/ceaners in the Uk
So, heres what to;
Check your filters - and for blokages in the hose and brush comparments,you have one in at top of the bucket called pre motor filter and one on top of the motor where the bucket sits called post motor filter. If these are worn and mucky wash them or replace.
Switch on your Dyson with no filters in and leave running to see if it cuts out. (in side on the motor their a liitle device called a TOC thermal over load cut out device. when the motor runs too warm - the TOC with cut power to the motor and will work again when cooled down.
Good luck.

It is turning off? Have you checked that the brush isn't full of hair and strings and might be causing too much friction to turn well, maybe the belt is rubbing too hard, please give me anymore info on this problem so I can figure it out, I own a dyson myself

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: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc04/dc04-standard/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-won-t-switch-on-or-cuts-out/machine-won-t-switch-on-or-cuts-out/my-machine-cut-out-whilst-i-was-using-it/how-to-wash-filters/machine-not-sucking-picking-up-as-well-as-usual-dc04/wand-suction

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.

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

Our online Support pages for DC04 contain all the information you might need to know to resolve issues with your vacuum in the event of a breakdown: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc04/dc04-brush-control

Although it's an online guide, and is designed to be navigated quickly and easily via your web browser, the pages could also be printed out if you wanted a hard copy.

I hope this helps, but if you'd like any further information or advice, please give our freephone UK Helpline a call on 0800 298 0298.

Dyson runs about 5 min then shuts off


REMOVE AND CLEAN FILTERS AND YOU MAY FIND IT WILL WORK OK IF STILL CUTS OUT YOU MAY HAVE A FAULTY THERMAL CUT OUT BLOCK INSIDE THE MOTOR HOUSING
THIS HAPENS WHEN DYSON IS USED WITH CLOGGED FILTERS AND HEAT DAMAGE TO THERMAL BLOCK

AVERAGE REPAIR COST £45 - £ 69 FOR NEW REPLACEMENT
