Question about Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

1 Answer

Not clogged, dirt emptied, but gets hot and shuts off

This vacuum usually shuts off when the cylinder gets too full of dirt... then I empty the cylinder and it starts up again. But lately, it won't start after I empty the dirt. It feels very hot around the motor, and I have to let it sit 5 or 10 minutes before it will start. Then it only runs a few minutes before shutting down again. I checked all the tubes, cleared out hair from the brushes, washed and dried the sponge filter, but same problem. I even took out and looked at the "permanent filter" which looked pretty dirty but didn't know how or if I should try to clean it. Help! Thanks, Cyndi

Blows the dirt back out even when empty.


If it is blowing dirt out that usually indicates a clog or obstruction somewhere. You'll have to follow the airflow from the floor to find where the clog is at.

Do my Dirt Devil have a restart button it just stop running


Hi! No the vacuum doesn't have a restart button, but it does have a thermal protector that will shut the vacuum down when it is overheated. If your dirt cup was too full this will activate the thermal protector sensor. Clogs and dirty filters can cause this as well. We recommend emptying the dirt cup, tapping out the filter and checking the hose for clogs. The vacuum will come back on usually within 45 minutes to an hour. Hope this helps.

Why vaccum not emptying


Hi! If no dirt is entering into the dirt cup it could be that you have a clog in your hose. Detach the hose from both ends and use a broom stick or something similar to carefully loosen and remove any clogs in the hose. Hope this helps! If not you can always reach out to us here on Fixya, Facebook.com/dirtdevil, or Twitter @DirtDevil. Thanks!

My vax power 8, 2200 watts 300 air watts 4L capacity upright Hoover is brand new, I emptied out the dust/dirt collecter and cleaned the motor filter yesterday for the first time, i switched it on and all...


I had the same problem. It looks like the seal on the lid on the bottom of the cylinder has fallen out when it was emptied. There is no longer a proper vacuum being created so you don't get the cyclone effect and the dirt doesn't collect where its supposed to. it just clogs up the filter. I put sellotape to seal the lid and it works fine.

I can not get the dirt cup out to empty it.


Just slide the dark gray release tab, located just below the cup, all the way to open position, and then pull the Easy Empty Cup toward you.

I have acquired an old Regina Electrik Broom


Hi jmathe, Looking at the back (business side) of the vacumn: Underneath the white plastic dirt cup, please find a cast aluminum latch, that secures the part you will empty. To remove the white plastic part, turn the aluminum latch handle downward, and to your right, while you are holding on to the dirt cup with your left hand. I usually wear a dust mask, and empty the dirt into a small grocery bag, to tie shut, before placing it in the trash. To replace the dirt cup, turn the cast aluminum handle back to where it was before, handle pointing left. The more often you empty the cup, the longer your Regina Electrik Broom will last. Mine is forty-five years old. Allow the motor to cool, often, as well.

Empty bag shows as Full


You have a clog, either in the hose, the dirt inlet by the brush roll or the filters are clogged.

Vacuum shuts down after a short time and needs to cool off before being restarted.


Could be the protector, it usually is located by the motor. But I am sure that this has a 1 year warranty on it, so if it is less then that, take it in for warranty service. But it also could be that you have a clogged filter, hose is clogged, or the dirt inlet by the brush roll is clogged. A clog will cause the motor to overheat and shut down until it is cleared.
