Question about Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

We just were vacuuming and it stopped as if we blew a fuse. I checked the breaker and it is on and plugged something else in the outlet with no problem but the vacuum won't turn on. Any suggestions?

How do I get the vacuum to turn on now?

Just to cover all bases, have you tried an outlet on another circuit? It sounds as though the vacuum (motor perhaps) shorted and tripped the breaker.

I have a George vacuum and it's died. I have

Of course, you should double check the plug-in recepticle - just to be sure you have not thrown a house breaker. The easiest way is to simply plug something else into the same recepticle. If you simply move the vac plug, you may choose another recepticle oparating on the same breaker.

How did you check the fuse? Fuses can fool you. As a general repair tech, I learned long ago not to rely on my eyes. I have a multimeter and do an ohm check - because sometimes a fuse can look ok, but actually be burned in-two where its not easy to see.

All that ruled out, the most common thing that stops functioning when a vac dies is the switch.
That ruled out, when vacs die it usually the switch.

It was working well, and then something blew a fuse. I reset the fuse and power was restored to the outlet. The shop vac goes on and runs, but the suction is VERY REDUCED! I removed the top, cleaned...

Hi Linda: It sounds as if you may have sucked up something that has not passed through the hose to the dust collection canister. This would explain the overloading of the machine and the shutdown.

As a next step you will need to check to make sure that the nozzle, hose and the connection to the dust collector is not plugged or partially plugged. Clear any obstruction and this should correct the problem.

If this does not resolve your issue, please reply with additional information. What type of material were you vacuuming? Was there any physical damage to the filter?

Thank you for using FixYa!

Using my wet/dry vac - less than 5 hours on the thing - it just stopped - can't get it to switch back on. Tried different plugs - different days. Although I purchased over 2 years ago, it has hardly been...

It may have gotten hot if you went too long before cleaning the filter. It sounds like you may have burnt it up. I hope not! You might also check to see if you tripped a breaker on the electrical panel. Try plugging it in an outlet that is not on the same circuit. If it works in another outlet, then you have just tripped a breaker.

Good Luck!

No power i check the cord unscrew the bottom plate and thats it

Did you try plugging it in more than one outlet? Perhaps you blew a fuse or tripped a breaker. Any safety breaker on the unit itself? Possibly a bad on/off switch.

Suddenly stopped running in the middle of vacuuming a room. Tried another outlet and still no power.

You have to go to the electrical panel that serves your home or apartment and locate the fuse that is blown [ if there are fuses, replace the blown one with a new one of the same amperage] or the circuit breaker which has kicked part way off. With a circuit breaker you have to turn it all the way off and then back on in order to reset it.
