Other than the fuse in the plug, there is no fuse on a DC07.However, the motor does have 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. It cannot be reset manually. 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 oneBayfor about £25, however replacing one requires good DIY skills and tools. Have a look atwww.dysonmedic.comand see if you feel you can tackle it yourself. If not, take it to a repair shop orcallthe Dyson helpline.
Electrical current passes through the electric cord and plug - it will get warm, that's normal. If the problem is worse where you smell an electrical burning smell, only an authorized dealer can fit a new power cord to your vacuum cleaner. Call the Dyson helpline, they will let you know who the closest repair dealer in your area is.
