Had the same problem 2 years ago. Washing filters only a short-term solution. After contacting Dyson, they replaced the shroud and cyclone under warranty. This cured the problem from July 05 until last week, when the motor has started to overheat again and cuts out on the high temperature safety trip. Mine is out of warranty now, so am unsure how to proceed. Maybe buy the parts they sent me before, but reckon they'll be expensive.

Ok, lfitz, I fixed my problem. First I called the Sears Service Center. They told me that I would have to drop it off there, and they would send it to Orlando to get looked at. The whole process would take about 2 weeks and who knows how much money. So I decided to become my own Hoover technician. It turns out that my original diagnosis was right about the chord that electrically connects the power on/off switch at the top of the handle to the rest of the vacuum. This was extremely easy to fix so please don't be scared away, although it does require a little philips-head screwdriver action. As always, make sure the vacuum is unplugged before you start. On the back of the vacuum, there is the hook that you wrap the electrical chord around for storage (the top one). On either side of that hook are two screws. Unscrew those. Now, the small piece of plastic that has the hook on it can be carefully pulled back, or removed if you need to. Inside, I found the detached end of a coiled black electrical chord that looks kind of like an A/C adapter. This chord should be plugged into the bottom of the metal shaft that slides in and out to allow you to adjust the height of the handle. Now, adjust the metal shaft so that you can plug the black chord back into the base. Push the chord in until you hear it click. Now, put the plastic piece back in place and put the screws back in and you're done. Plug it in and give it a try. I hope this helps.

Most likely caused by a lack of airflow. Check to see if you have airflow at the end of the hose. If not, Remove all of the hoses and ensure that they are not clogged. If there is airflow through the hose; check the air inlet immediately aft of the brushroll, inside the nozzle. This is a very common place for clogs to form.
Also note: contrary to some manufacturers claims, you can not clean (or wash, for that matter;) a hepa filter. The small particles are too embedded in the filter media to ever get completely removed, and the act of cleaning tends to damage the filters, even if you can't see the damage. This is why bagless life-spans, on average, are half the length of the life-spans of bagged vacuums.

After cleaning the foam filter, it's also helpful to pull apart the cone shaped insert in the canister. Twist the top to remove the cone, remove three screws from inside the small cylinder, then remove the 4 screws around the base of the cone. Then you can wash all of the dirt out of the honeycomb-type cone-shaped piece. Make sure it's all dry before putting it back together or it'll turn to mud. Mine worked like new after cleaning the foam filter and the honeycomb cone.

With this model, remove the dust tank, and turn it on, check for suction at the lower intake. If you have suction, install the tank and remove hose, and check for suction there. keep following until youn lose it. Then you problem will be between those 2 areas
