Question about Dyson DC08 Cylinder Bagless Canister Cyclonic Vacuum

1 Answer

When I turn the vacuum on, and let go of the button, the vacuum just immediately turns itself off again. I have checked the cylinder and the hose and there doesnt appear to be any blockages. Can you please help?

Hi there,
The problem is the switch itself. It is just a really common ailment for the Dyson DC08. I have made a video of how to get into this machine to change the switch as the only solution is a new switch. Only try it if you have suitable skills or qualifications to do so!. Having said that it's a really easy repair.
Check out the video and see what you think, if it's helpful I would love to get a comment or a thumbs up, heck if you want to send me money!
If you need the parts to do the job check out Nelson Vacuums or VacuumSpot.

I have an Ecectrolux Epic canister vacuum. As soon as it starts sucking, the vacuum cuts off. I put a new filter and bag in, but it doesn't seem to help. If I open the front where the bag goes, take the...


Try this.
Disconnect hose. Turn machine on and place hand over intake. If it shuts off immediately, first try turning dial on top of machine so largest dot matches up with arrow. Turn on and place hand over intake again. If it still shuts off immediately, the "control valve assembly" is worn or broken and needs replaced. Don't try this yourself.
Take your complete machine to the nearest authorized Aerus Electrolux shop, or call and ask someone to pick it up. There's no extra fee for this, or delivery upon repair.
The repair/replacement should include a complete cleaning of your vacuum in the labor, but ask the service manager to be sure.
The shop nearest you can be found by typing your zip code into the indicated space on the site listed below.

Central vacuum won't start even after depressing the reset button on the carpet sweeper. Hose and wand appear to be unclogged.


Is it only the power head that's not working, or the central vacuum itself? Disconnect wands from hose, turn on, and hold hand over hose end to check for suction. If none, go through first set of steps below.

If the vacuum:
1. Press reset button on vacuum.
2. Check circuit breaker at the circuit box to make sure it's ON.
3. Make sure the unit is plugged in completely.
4. Use a voltage tester to check for power at the outlet.
5. Check filter. If dirty rinse it with warm water, and allow to dry thoroughly. I strongly suggest having a second filter for use during drying, then just trade off using them.

If the vacuum still doesn't turn on, consider the following:]
Broken or worn out power switch in hose handle...Switch needs replaced.
Broken wire in hose...Replace hose.
Bad connection...Needs taken to an authorized Aerus service center for check and repair.

If the power nozzle (suction at end of hose, but power nozzle doesn't work:
1. Ensure the brush has been thoroughly cleaned of any hair, string, and other items that may have wrapped around it.
2. Power nozzle motor runs, but brush doesn't turn when vacuum is on...belt needs replaced.
3. Power nozzle motor does not run...All wiring, connections, and motor need to be checked.

If you can't determine the problem with the above helps, the entire machine, including hose, wands, and power nozzle, needs to be taken to an authorized Aerus service center for complete check.
If you don't know the location of the nearest Aerus Electrolux store, go to below site, type in zip code, and click on "view dealer list". They may also be able to send someone to pick it up.

The reset button on the "sweeper" is only to start the "sweeper" motor after it has shut off due to the brush getting jammed. It doesn't effect the vacuum operation.

2100 comes on but will not keep running, I have changed filter and bag.


The dial on top of the machine should be set about mid-point. If it is, then turn until the small dot and the arrow are lined up. If this doesn't help, turn all the way around so large dot and arrow line up.
2. Detach hose from vacuum. Turn on. If it continues running, place hand flat against the intake. If it shuts off immediately, there's probably a problem with the "Control Valve Assembly". This is a part that can be purchased at your local Aerus Electrolux store. I highly recommend allowing them to replace it rather than trying to yourself.
If you don't know where the closest store is, go to aerusonline.com, click on "store locator" button at bottom of page, type in your zip code and click on the find store button.

If your vacuum runs fine without the hose attached, then check hose and power nozzle for a clog.

We changed to a new bag and changed the filter but everytime we turn it on it goes off and the green light turns red.


Try this. Detach hose from canister. Turn on. What happens?
If it runs, place hand directly over intake port. What happens?
If it shut off immediately, an internal part is broken and needs to be replaced. This is a repair that needs to be done at an authorized Aerus, new name for the Electrolux company that made these vacuums, service center.
It's also a problem that's seen a lot when generic "made to fit" bags are used. Genuine bags are made by Home Solutions and will have their name on it. Use of generic bags also voids the warranty. Which, depending on date of purchase, yours may still have on the canister itself with it's components.
Wiring and switch problems can also cause this, so the machine, including hose, wands, and power nozzle, should be taken to a service center for a complete check.

The on/off buttons are not working anymore? Any


With your hose plugged into the vacuum, check your cord at the outlet, is it securely plugged in? There are no signs of cord damage? If so, you will need to take it to the shop,but it probably just has the wrong sequence in the power buttons.. turn on the main unit switch then turn on the hose switch to the canister, if no power, then hit the switch on the machine again, it should power up, if it does not, open up the bag compartment, and shut it again, making sure that the bag is aligned inside and the cover is closed tightly. Did this fixya? Let me know. You may need to contact electrolux for a replacement hose. they are really good about warranty service and will send yu a new hose at no charge if they determine that is the problem. Here is some contact info. Thanks, Rene(the Vacuum Doctor)

Electrolux Renaissance power nozzle turning on and off, brass pins hot


The deal with the Renny is that it runs off of circuit boards. Usually the problem of the main motor shutting on and off is caused by one of the Triac boards located inside the canister. Another problem could be the thermostat wire located on the inside of your motor itself. It's almost never the thermostat, so the triac board is most likely the issue.

As far as your power nozzle goes, the head eminating from the swivel body is in most cases due to an older design of the power nozzle. I would suggest investing in a new elbow assembly that includes a new swivel body as well as newer style of wiring that is proved to reduce arcing and heat production within the power nozzle.

In some cases, fixing the power nozzle will fix the problems you are experienceing with the main motor as the arcing happening in the power nozzle can in fact turn off your machine. So investing in a new elbow assembly for your power nozzle could in fact solve the problem in its entirety.

I had the same problem with my vacuum. I called in for technical service and was told to push the "reset button". It turns out that there is a small red button right next to the dirt indicator light. I pushed the button, plugged the vacuum back in and started it up and it worked like a charm! :) Hope this helps!
