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.

When I pull the wand out of my dyson, the entire vacuum shuts off. Or if I use ot for a long period of time (for example, if I am cleaning the entire house), it shuts off by itself (sort of like it's


Hi Jodi, it's Jack at Dyson.

Like most Dyson vacuums, DC17 is engineered to shut itself off for protection if it starts to overheat. If this happens after a period of use, or when you try to use the wand and hose, it's likely this will be caused by a blockage somewhere in the machine.

We'd like to provide further assistance and to help you check for any obstructions within the machine. When you have your vacuum easily to hand, please call us on 1-866-693-9766 (US), or 1-877-397-6622 (CA).

We'll look forward to speaking with you.

Will not stay on


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC25 Animal. If your machine shuts itself off after a period of use, it may be overheating due to a blockage - the filters may also need a wash. To resolve this issue, please follow the steps shown in our online support guide:

http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=51&product=DC25-ANIMAL

However, if this doesn't seem to help, or if the machine is only working intermittently, please get in touch with us directly so we can provide further assistance. You can reach us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

Best wishes,

Hi there,

Sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC14. Like most Dyson cleaners, your DC14 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=626&product=DC14-ANIMAL


The correct way to wash the filter is shown in the video linked below. The filter should be washed in cold water at least once every 3-6 months. Always ensure it's totally dry before replacing it.

http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/help.asp?article=1942&product=DC14-ANIMAL


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 - our Helpline is open from 7am until 10pm, 7 days a week. 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,

So, if anything causes it to overheat, it will switch off. If this happens, leave the cleaner switched off for at least two hours, as it will not start again until it has cooled down.

The most common cause of a cut-out is that the cleaner has a blockage or the filter needs washing. A high room temperature may also trigger it. Before you continue vacuuming, ensure the filter is clean and there are no blockages. You can download the user guide at www.dyson.co.uk/support/. Just click on ‘Get Expert Help’ then ‘Using my Dyson product’ then ‘User Guide’.


Hope that this information is useful to you.

Dies after a few minutes of vacuuming


The thermal cut-off in your machine is activating - this indicates that you have a blockage or a clog in the machine. The machine will turn itself off so that the motor doesn't overheat - the machine will cool off and you'll be able to turn it on after 30 mins to an hour.

Call the Dyson Helpline for a thorough blockage check - they know what they are doing.
