I was using it and it suddenly shut off. I checked the outlet and its fine. i flick the switch and nothing. Maybe it was full? so i emptied it. it was warm, so i let it cool down. is there a reset button?
I don't know about this particular model, but if you did opperate a full vacuum cleaner until it got hot and went off on it's own, this means you might have overloaded the motor and blown the protection fuse. in this case, you might have to change it. refer to the owner's manual about overload protection.

5 minutes everytime? If so, raise brush all the way, and vacuum next to nothing. in fact, tilt vac up so the brush touches nothing. wait 5 minutes. If it doesn't shut off, your brush is set too high. if it does, the motor is over heating. make sure bag is empty, no debris in brush, filters clean and make sure you're not plugged into an outlet that a breaker on the outlet can pop too.
First try another outlet. The likely problem is that your Dyson power switch may need to be replaced. If the vacuum cleaner switched off whilst you were using it you may be experiencing a thermal cut-off. Call the Dyson helpline, they'll let you know what your options are to fix your vacuum cleaner.
As was my problem, checked and washed filters (both) checked all accessable tubes but problem was that the tube inside the drum and the tapered section at the top ws solid with dust.
remove 3 small screws in top (Torx heads) and clean out. Job Done!

Outlet is fine / Plug looks good / cord looks good / I see no obstructions ........Would appreciate any helpful thoughts ....Trying to get Mom's Eureka 2961AVZ back up and running.Thanks Hello, I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It sounds to me that you may have a bad switch or the worst scenario would be a bad motor and or armature, and the armature is almost the cost of the new motor, so I would replace the motor, but check the switch and the cord because sometimes the cord looks good but there might be broken wires inside the cord that you can’t see. If the vacuum is less than one year old the motor would be covered under the factory warranty if one year and maybe the switch as well. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions. http://www.eureka.comCustomer Service Customer Service Dept1-800-282-2886 Electrolux Home Care Products P.O.
