    Yes I need to get the switch housing off so I can rewire. The cord is broken at the housing.

    Most Dyson vacuums have a built in safety system that stops the machine if it begins to overheat. This usually happens because the filter needs washing or your machine is blocked. If your machine turns off on its own, unplug it and leave it for at least an hour to cool down. Remember to check the filter and look for blockages before re-starting.

    Are you just wanting to know how to access the switch housing so you can change the cord?

Dyson dc04


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

Like most Dyson vacuums, DC04 is equipped with a thermal cutout, which will shut the vacuum off for protection if it starts to overheat. This could be due to a blockage - the pre-filter may also need a wash. It should automatically reset after it's had at least 2 hours to cool down. You can prevent this from reoccurring following the steps below.

To wash the pre-filter, use cold water without detergent, as shown in the video below. Allow at least 12 hours for both parts of the filter to dry completely before replacing it.


To check the vacuum for blockages, just follow the steps shown in our online Support guide: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc04/dc04-standard/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-won-t-switch-on-or-cuts-out/machine-won-t-switch-on-or-cuts-out/my-machine-cut-out-whilst-i-was-using-it/how-to-wash-filters/machine-not-sucking-picking-up-as-well-as-usual-dc04/wand-suction

If you'd like further advice after giving these checks a try, please give our experts a call directly on 0800 298 0298. We're available from 8am-8pm from Monday to Friday, and 8am-6pm on weekends. Calls are free from UK landlines.

Dyson DC 04 has just switched itself off! is this normal? has it just overheated or is there a fuse to change?


Hi Andrew,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC04. If the machine shut itself off during use, it sounds as if it may have overheated due to a blockage - the filter may also need a wash.

To locate and remove any blockages, please follow the steps shown in our online Support guide:

http://support.dyson.co.uk/support/dc04/dc04-brush-control/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-not-sucking-picking-up-as-well-as-usual/wand-suction

In normal use, the filter needs to be washed at least once every 3-6 months, as shown in the video below. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 12 hours for the filter to dry completely somewhere warm before replacing it.

This should resolve the issue, but if you'd like any further assistance or advice, please call us on 0800 298 0298 - our Helpline is available from 7am until 10pm, 7 days a week.

Best wishes,

Why does my dyson dc04 work for about 5 mins then cut out


I spent 4 years working on Dyson v/ceaners in the Uk
So, heres what to;
Check your filters - and for blokages in the hose and brush comparments,you have one in at top of the bucket called pre motor filter and one on top of the motor where the bucket sits called post motor filter. If these are worn and mucky wash them or replace.
Switch on your Dyson with no filters in and leave running to see if it cuts out. (in side on the motor their a liitle device called a TOC thermal over load cut out device. when the motor runs too warm - the TOC with cut power to the motor and will work again when cooled down.
Good luck.
