CUTTING OFF Our Dco7 cuts off after a few minutes of use. If we wait a few minutes and power it back on it will turn on but turn off again by itself.

    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!

This vacuum has the power cutting off after a couple of minutes but after a waiting period it restarts. Any ideas


It's an overheat protector for the motor. Clean all filters thoroughly, it should help.

My DCO7 keeps cutting out, all filters are clean, it was my mother ln laws she gave it to me, I thought I could solve the problem, there is no suction from the hose, I am now frustrated. Regards steven...


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).

On/off switch doesn't work. No power. The last few times I used it, kept cutting out but now won't switch on at all. No blockages.


As it was cutting out before it stopped working all to gether, it most likely isnt the switch but the motor.

The motor 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, the moment it is switched on, it just trips again. Eventually, the motor wont do anything.

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 avaible on eBay for about £25, however repalcing one requires good DIY skills and tools.

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

Machine turns on, has little suction, then stops working.


It would be helpful to know what model of vacuum cleaner you're talking about. Basically though, your machine has a blockage somewhere (hence very low suction), and is cutting out after just a few minutes because of overheating.  You need to explore the suction hose (or whatever your machine has), find the blockage and remove it. Blockages almost always happen where the pipe-work takes a sharp bend.  In the worst-case scenario (although in almost all modern machines this is not possible) the blockage may be in the vacuum fan enclosure itself, and then you'll probably need a professional to take care of it.

MY CLEANER CUTS OFF


Check that the bag is not full, check that is not a broken contact in one of the wires.

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.
