Periodically my Dyson DC07 stops operating, and then will resume operating after about a 10 minute wait period. Is there a thermal switch or "cutout" if the motor is overheating?


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

Like most Dyson vacuums, DC07 is equipped with a thermostat which shuts the machine down for protection if it starts to overheat. This will often be due to a blockage, and the pre-filter may also be overdue for a wash.

The machine will reset automatically after it's been allowed to cool down, but to prevent this from happening again there are a few simple check you can try: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc07/dc07-standard/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-won-t-switch-on-or-cuts-out/my-machine-cut-out-whilst-i-was-using-it/how-to-wash-filters/wand-suction

We recommend washing the filter at least once every 3-6 months, using cold water without detergent. Allow the filter to dry completely before replacing it - this may take at least 12 hours.


Removing any blockages and washing the filter thoroughly should resolve the issue. However, if your machine continues to shut off after you've tried both of these steps please get in touch with us directly so we can talk you through some additional troubleshooting checks. You can reach us by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

A burning smell when in use


Martinsivyer:

Turn the machine upside-down and see if you can turn the beater/brush bar with your hand. You should see the brush turning and feel the resistance from the motor. The brush/beater bar may be binding, and what you are smelling is the motor shaft spinning against the rubber belt. You can remove the base plate and check the brush/beater bar with the belt disconnected. If the brush/beater bar is difficult to turn, you need to remove the brush/beater bar and clean the bearings at each end, Remove any threads that are wound around the beater bar ends so that the bearings roll easily and smoothly. Check to see that your machine is not set too low for the surface that you are bacuuming. While you have the belt disconnected, check thi inside surface to see if the motor shaft has been spinning against the belt, you'll see the damage to the inside circumfrence of the belt.

How many filters does a dyson dc07 have


Hi there, the DC07 has 2 filters. A pre motor washable filter and a post motor filter which will be either a simple pad (like thick cloth) or a Hepa filter (about and inch thick with a plastic housing). The post motor filter should not be washed but the pre motor filter can. As a technician I would recommend replacing every couple of years for best running of your vacuum. The post motor filter is under the clear bin, you can lever the cover off with a small flat blade screwdriver. The washable filter is to the right of the post motor filter inside a removable housing.

How to fit a new drive belt


Hi,

There are different models of DC07 and the guide below is for the "standard" model. There are some slight variations on different DC07 models, but this should be more or less the same for all of them.


Disconnect the power and allow to cool for at least an hour before replacing the belt.


1. Sit on a chair, turn the vacuum upside down and hold it between your knees:

belectric_33.jpg

2. Undo the 3 fasteners at the positions shown in the picture below on the underside of the dyson (use a coin). Pivot the back edge of the sole plate upwards and lift off the sole plate which covers the brush bar:

belectric_34.jpgbelectric_35.jpg

3. Check for any debris arounf the brushes and the the spindle

4. If the old belt is still intact, slide the belt off the motor spindle first. Then pull the brushbar upwards and away from the base of vacuum. Make note of how the old belt feeds through the hole and how the brushbar was correctly inserted.

5. Remove the old belt from the brushbar and loop the new one over. Feed the new belt back through the hole and re-insert the brushbar.

Make sure the plastic tabs on the end of the brushbar fit back into the slots correctly and the end caps are in place:

belectric_37.jpg

6. Loop the open end of the belt over your thumb, twist 90 degrees, the stretch the belt over the motor spindle untwisting it as you hook it over. It is easier to hook your fingers over the back of the hoover (see picture) to give you extra leverage when stretching the belt. After hooking the belt over the spindle, check to make sure the belt is straight and there are no twists.

(Some people find it easier to stretch the new belt over the spindle before fully re-inserting the brush-bar)

belectric_38.jpgbelectric_39.jpg

7a If you hooked the belt over the motor spindle before full re-inserting the brushbar, re-insert the brushbar now (as described in step 5)

7b Re-attach the sole plate - Insert the 3 plastic tabs on the inside of the rubber bumper at the front of the vacuum and pivot it downwards back into place. Tighten the 3 fasteners again using a coin.

This should be everything you need to know to replace the belt in your DC07. Please post back if you have any difficulty replacing the belt or need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

No suction on dyson dc07


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

If the dust cup is too full, there is no space for the dirt to go when you are vacuuming. To fix this, remove the dust cup and empty the it. If your vacuum is still not picking up dirt after emptying the dust cup, there may be something blocking the airway. There are two places where you can check for a blockage: the dust cup air duct and the intake opening behind the brush roll. To check for a blockage in the dust cup air duct stand the vacuum upright and remove the dust cup. Now you can disconnect the super stretch hose and check for clogs in the air duct behind the dust cup. If that is not the case, to check for a clog near the roller brush lay the vacuum down. Next check the opening behind the brush roll for clogs. If there is debris, clean the opening with scissors, carefully cutting away any debris.
Uncleaned filters may also the reason why your vacuum has lost suction. To clean the foam and felt filters, remove the dust cup and pull out the two filters that are on the top of the motor base. Rinse the filters with lukewarm water until the water is running clear. Let the filters dry fully before putting them back into the vacuum. If your vacuum is still not picking up dirt, you may need to replace it.
Unfortunately, if none of the other solutions worked, your motor is going bad. Most of the time a new motor costs as much as the vacuum itself and it is not easy to replace the motor. It may be time for a new vacuum.
