Your machine is overheating. This is usually caused by the dust bin being too full, your filter is long overdue for a cleaning, or there is a clog in the machine. Usually a cheap fix regardless... Wash your filter, check the removeable parts for blockages, and empty your dust bin.

Hi there,

Sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC07. Like most Dyson cleaners, your DC07 is equipped with a safety device which shuts off the cleaner if it starts to overheat. This is often due to a blockage, or because the filters need a wash. The easiest way to check for and remove any blockages is to follow the steps shown in our online guide:

http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/help.asp?article=4&product=DC07-SY

The correct way to wash the filters is shown in the video embedded below. The filters should be washed in cold water at least once every 3-6 months. Always ensure they're totally dry before replacing them.

Hopefully this should resolve your issue. However, if you've followed these steps and are still concerned, it's probably best if you get in touch with us directly. You can call us free on 08002980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US). One of our experts will be happy to run through some troubleshooting over the phone with you and recommend the best course of action.

Kind regards,

Jack

Dyson dc07 works for a bit then switches off all the time


If you used a credit card with extended warranty or its within 1 year, take it back. You are correct about the overheating. We have the same unit and it works fine for over 3 years. I did see rebuilds at Big Lots which worried me for a $500 vacuum to have a reliability problem. Guess the recycled vacuums had bad motors?

My Dyson stops working after using it for a while!


You are probably experiencing a thermal cut-off which means that there is a blockage in the machine. Call the Dyson Helpline, they'll help you find it.

Just stopped mid hoovering and now won't switch on!


It is probably a thermal cut-off which is caused by a blockage. The machine will turn itself off before it overheats if it is a thermal cut-off. Once it has cooled down, you will be able to turn it back on again (usually 30 mins - 1 hour).

If the machine doesn't turn on at all anymore, you may need to replace the power switch. Call the Dyson helpline, they will do a blockage troubleshoot and if it's not that, they will tell you where you can find an authorized Dyson repair dealer in your area.

Called the phone number posted on the vaccum cleaner itself and my husband received technical support directly from Dyson. Problem solved at no cost to us. Vaccum is working fine.

My Dyson DC07 won't turn on!


you may have a broken belt. Bad news regarding all Dyson's. You can't replace just the belt your self. You have to purchase a new belt assembly which includes the gears. And it wont be cheap. I would call it a design flaw but i am sure that dyson calls it a profit scheme.

This is from the Dyson web page:
Get expert help Thermal cut out 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.
Any non- domestic use may adversely affect the filter performance such as vacuuming up plaster dust.


Sounds like your vacuum is overheating. Check the above.
