The electric motor inside your Dyson has a built in over-current trip to protect itself (and you if it seriously overheated and caught fire). This normally automatically resets itself, however if the motor has just about had it, next time it is switched on it just trips again.

The primary cause of motors overheating is that the filters are not cleaned or replaced frequently enough. Dont be fooled by Dyson's "lifetime filters". They need to be regularly cleaned and replaced when necessary.

Replacement motors are available on eBay for about £25, however replacing one requires good DIY skills and tools.

Have a look at www.dysonmedic.com and see if you feel you can tackle it yourself. If not, take it to a repair shop or call the Dyson helpline.

    It is cutting out because there is still a blockage in the hose. Thus, it is getting hot and tripping out.

Vacuum will run for 5 minutes and shut off,


Your Dyson is designed to cut out if it becomes overheated, and it then takes about half an hour to cool down properly. If you don't resolve the problem, it will soon cutout again. Clogeed filters or other blockages are the usual cause of cutting out, but there are others, for example, incorrectly fitting valves, or broken belt. You need to do more cleaning. Follow the step by step instructions for your model, which can be found here.

You will be following a path for solving cutting out when you are using the machine, and I would be surprised if you can't fix yours.

My dco7 keeps overheating and switching itself off...Any ideas wot could be causing this??


Yes. There's a blockage somewhere which is restricting the airflow. Follow instructions in the User Manual (you can download one from the Dyson website if necessary) for clearing blockages. Also make sure the washable filter is clean (and don't put it back until it's completely dry - at least 24 hours in a warm place). Good luck!

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).

Dc07 when vacuming it will shut down20min to 30mins my startup


Hi
Check that the main hose is not clogged top and at the base, also check that all inspection airways are clear and after the main brush roll there is nothing clogging. When a vacuum activates its thermal cut out its usually because the motor is straining to produce power and clogging is usually the problem.

If this works, please rate appropriately.

Dc07 cuts out


Hi!  This is the sign of a machine that is overheating, and almost certainly is caused by a partial blockage.  You need to check all the pipework and make sure the washable filter is clean (if you wash the filter, use only clean cold water, no detergent, and let it dry in a warm place for at least 12 hours, do not force-dry). I hope this helps.  I value your feedback, so please remember to rate this response. Good luck!

How many filters do we have to clean we have already done one at the side is there any other ? we have a dco7


There is another filter located just above the motor, just beneath the dirt cup. A lid pops off to access it. This is supposed to be a permanent Hepa filter according to Dyson. You know as well as I do, filters clog eventually. You can not wash this one. Under regular use I would change it once every two years.
