    We have the same problem. We used to solve it by thoroughly cleaning the filter system but it is shutting off now and the filter is clean

    I have the same problem. after vacuming a room or so it turns off by itself. I have cleaned all the fliters and checked all the lines. Mine is three years old but for the price it should last longer then these. What can I do?

    Mine cut off. I cleaned the filter but it won't come back on.

    Ours switched off unexpectedly a few days ago whilst in the middle of use. I will clean the filter and report back to let you know if this makes any difference

Ok What is probably causing the problem is an internal error inside the vacuum. What I recomend you to do is take it back where you bought it and tell them what ever is wrong with it.

PLEASE RATE MY ANSWER AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!


Hope it works! Tell me if you have any questions later on!

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.

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).

Stops after a few minutes


Its overheating, so the TOC (thermal overload cutout device) is cutting the power to the motor to protect it.
Thats why it works when it has cooled down.
Check for blockages and make sure the filters are clean, if it still happens take to an approved engineer to check the TOC

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.

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!

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

MY CLEANER CUTS OFF


My Hoover S3639 on/off switch stopped working. I don't hear the 'click' any more. I removed the top of the vacuum but can't determine how to replace the switch.
