Sounds like the motor is overheating and thermalling out (Hight Temp shut down). This could be caused by overfilled cannister, obstructed passageways, or debris accumulated around the motors cooling fan. Try emptying the catch container and blow out / clean all the filters. Check for obtructions by going to the hose mode and alternately blocking and uncovering the nozzle end - feel for good suction and listen for a definite change in motor sound (Pitch Change) With the intake open, the motor should rev freely, when blocked it will slow and sound labored / loaded down. Another possible cause could be a binding brush roller overloading the motor - but this will usually burn out the belt first. Notice any unusual smells? Burned belts stink like burnt rubber.

I can't reset my thermal reset button on my Riccar Brilliance


You may have hair and debris in the endcaps or bearings of your brushroll causing a restriction. The belt sensor thinks you have something stuck in the brushroll so it shuts it off. It's a simple fix, if you can't figure out how to do it take it to your Riccar dealer.

When vaccum is in use it shuts off after vaccuming for a minute .


Look to see if the main air filter is clean (some can be washed and others have to be replaced) it will if blocked up trip a thermal cutoff to protect the motor in the unit.

The vaccum just stopped working while in use


It's either plugged or clogged in the filter, which triggered the internal thermal shut-off. Clean it out and wait thirty minutes and it should work.

I bought it in may , I can honestly say , it is THE worst vaccum


There are several filters on bag-less vacuums that need to be cleaned. Dig out your owners manual or open the one below. See section 3 for filters and maintenance. If you are vacuuming a house bigger than about 1500 square feet, you should be cleaning the filters every other use. Personally, after using a bagless for a couple of months, I went back to my bagged vacuum.

When I move my bottom lever from Floor to Carpet


I cannot express enough you need to clean your dyson as great as it is its still a vaccum. look underneath at roller, clean out tube wash filter and check to see if vaccum ate something which is stuck inside. I have had mine for 4years and still picks up after 2goldens and kids.

My bissell bagless vac has no vaccum. ihave


You will have to clean the filter and clean the main motor.  I had this issue on mine and the main motor was so full of dust bunnies, that it stopped it from creating a vacuum.

Shutting off due to overheating


The foam style filters they sent you go in the top of the vaccume above the canister. There is a sticker in the back of the canister compartment indicating an orange lever in the top of that compartment. This releases a plastic retainer with the foam filter in it. Mine was so caked with dirt after 1 year of use it took a while to clean it up. I thought the vaccume was done for in only a year.
