    I have the same problem. I've removed all hoses to check for blockages and I've cleaned the pre-motor filter several times. Any other suggestions?



    Thanks,



    Missing my dyson!

Could be overheating. I know that there is the cylinder where the dust goes, but after that there is a foam filter between that and the actual engine. You will need to make sure its cleaned out.

im not 100% familiar with your model, but my one had alot of advertisement with it when i bought it telling me that every 6 months i needed to take this foam pad out, wash it out one way, then the other, then leave to dry for 24 hrs.

Remove the cylinder and work backwads towards the engine, there may even be a little sticker to tell you where it is, and how to remove it (seriously i have 2 stickers on my vacuum)

Power won't turn on


Hi Colleen,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your DC25. If your machine won't run, it may have overheated due to a blockage, and the filters may also need a wash. You should find you machine will run again once it's had at least two hours to cool down - however, to make sure this doesn't happen again, please follow the steps shown in our online Support guide:

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

This should resolve the issue, but if you'd like any further assistance or advice, please give our Helpline a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

Best wishes,

Jack

My Dyson DC16 usually shuts down after about 5 to 10 seconds. However, occasionally it will run for 45 seconds to 1 minute before shutting down. It is left on charge permanently. I have checked the...


Your battery is losing voltage too quick. It has probably developed a 'memory'. Dyson claims that their handheld has the best suction out of all the handhelds out there. In order to maintain that claim the circuit board will shut off power to the motor when the voltage drops below adequate charge for full suction.
We need someone who can teach us to bypass that part of the circuit so it won't cut power to the motor or you need to get a new battery.
Shorting the battery like an Aircraft battery then re-charging won't fix it.

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.

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.

Hi its Darran at Dyson.

From your description of the problem, it sounds as though there is a problem with the battery.

Your DC16 will have been supplied with a 2 year guarantee. If it still within this period, please contact our Helpline on 0800 298 0298. However if your machine is no longer covered, a replacement battery can be purchased via our website at www.dyson.co.uk/store.

Kind regards

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.

Dyson


the automatic cut out switch on the motor needs replacing when the motor gets hot this switch comes in and stops the motor from overheating when the motor cools down the cleaner will work again and cut out again when the motor gets hot if it is not replaced it will eventually burn the motor out after the switch has been replaced both the filter and cyclone need to be cleaned on a regular basis or the same will happen again
