Swithes itself off after approximately 5 minutes?? is ready to use again approx 15 mins later but again only for 5 mins ? Angela


Hi there,

Sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC07. Like most Dyson cleaners, your DC07 is equipped with a safety device which shuts off the cleaner if it starts to overheat. This is often due to a blockage, or because the filters need a wash. The easiest way to check for and remove any blockages is to follow the steps shown in our online guide:

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

The correct way to wash the filters is shown in the video embedded below. The filters should be washed in cold water at least once every 3-6 months. Always ensure they're totally dry before replacing them.

Hopefully this should resolve your issue. However, if you've followed these steps and are still concerned, it's probably best if you get in touch with us directly. You can call us free on 08002980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US). One of our experts will be happy to run through some troubleshooting over the phone with you and recommend the best course of action.

Kind regards,

Jack

Dyson animal shuts of after 5-10 min of use


The "hidden" filter at the base of the unit is the HEPA filter, there is another filter on the side of the vacuum that you can remove and wash with water. Make sure that is washed out. If it's too dirty it will restrict air flow and the motor will overheat.

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).

I turn my dyson on and it runs for 5 min then turns off


The symptoms you describe are typical of overheating. That indicates that there's a blockage somewhere. Follow the instructions in your user manual for removing blockages (or you can download a copy from Dyson website if you need to), and make sure the filters are clean too. That should solve the problem.

The motor may not be getting air flow past it due to clogging or dust build-up. It is probably shutting off because of a thermal overload switch. Good luck!

I have the same problem as steve967 The dyson dc16 is fully charged, runs well for 5-10 seconds and shuts down. I wait for a second or 2 and it runs again for 5-10 seconds. This will continue for...


Dear Michael_Stad,

I am going to sound like a broken record but here is my same answer to another person with the same problem.

I have I had the same problem with my Dyson DC16, where it only runs for a few seconds at a time with each trigger pull. My husband called Dyson (Canada) and without hassle they shipped us a replacement part which I just received this morning. The replacement part sent to us is: DC16 Main Body with Rating Plate. It is also under warranty for 1 year. The great customer service makes up for the flaw in the machine. Also, Dyson is aware of the problem. Hope this helps.

This is from the Dyson web page:
Get expert help Thermal cut out Most Dyson vacuums have a built in safety system that stops the machine if it begins to overheat. This usually happens because the filter needs washing or your machine is blocked. If your machine turns off on its own, unplug it and leave it for at least an hour to cool down. Remember to check the filter and look for blockages before re-starting.
Any non- domestic use may adversely affect the filter performance such as vacuuming up plaster dust.


Sounds like your vacuum is overheating. Check the above.
