The motor is heating up to much and the cut out switch is kicking in. You need to check the the motor filter, and worse case you may need to new motor..

Periodically my Dyson DC07 stops operating, and then will resume operating after about a 10 minute wait period. Is there a thermal switch or "cutout" if the motor is overheating?


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

Like most Dyson vacuums, DC07 is equipped with a thermostat which shuts the machine down for protection if it starts to overheat. This will often be due to a blockage, and the pre-filter may also be overdue for a wash.

The machine will reset automatically after it's been allowed to cool down, but to prevent this from happening again there are a few simple check you can try: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc07/dc07-standard/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-won-t-switch-on-or-cuts-out/my-machine-cut-out-whilst-i-was-using-it/how-to-wash-filters/wand-suction

We recommend washing the filter at least once every 3-6 months, using cold water without detergent. Allow the filter to dry completely before replacing it - this may take at least 12 hours.


Removing any blockages and washing the filter thoroughly should resolve the issue. However, if your machine continues to shut off after you've tried both of these steps please get in touch with us directly so we can talk you through some additional troubleshooting checks. You can reach us by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

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.

S7000 Just shuts off...


It's shutting down due to overheating to protect the motor ( and to prevent a fire! ). Running it and feeling around the motor to see if it's gotten hot would be the first thing I'd check. If the vacuum is new and giving you these problems, I'd return it to the store you bought it from and see what they'll do about it..there may have been a recall you aren't aware of.

Overheat light comes on vacume will not run


Let it sit for 30 minutes before trying to use again. Make sure the bag is not full and check to see if filter is clogged.

After using the unit for a few minutes it cuts off.


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.

We have a dyson root cyclone and it shuts off after a about 5 minutes of running. Then after about 10 minutes it will run again.


Your description is typical of a machine that's overheating. This is almost always caused by a blockage, as restricted airflow can't keep the motor cool and the automatic cut-out shuts the machine off. It re-sets itself when it's cooled a bit. Check your operator manual for how to clear blockages, and also check that your filters are clean.

Cleaning solution will not dispense


After sitting for a period of time, some of the solution may have dried in the inner walls of the feed tube from the solution tank. What I would suggest is to empty the solution tank and then fill it with hot tap water, put it back on the Floormate, and hold the solution "feed lever" on until it starts dripping water. The hot water will hopefully disolve the dried solution and allow it to flow again.

I hope this helps! :)

CLEANER SWITCHES ITSELF OFF AFTER A FEW MINUTES USE. IF LEFT FOR SOME TIME, IT WILL START AGAIN FINE, THEN AFTER A FEW MINUTES MORE USE , IT WILL SWITCH OFF AGAIN.


check all filters, if they can be washed do so, if not clean or replace. next check for a clog in the machine and in the hoses. the machine as a thermal device that if it senses an overload or getting to hot, the machine will shut itself off for safety resons.

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.

Bosch BSA2222UC canister vacuum shuts off after 5 minutes


You have a plugged vacuum indicator port. There will be a tiny hole somewhere near the hose inlet. Just clean it with a dry toothbrush. This will allow the vacuum pressure to equalize on either side of the shut off switch.
