This is quite a common problem with dysons. mine had the same problem last year.
there is a thermal cut out switch built into the motor and sometimes they can become too sensitive.
as the motor warms up, the thermal switch thinks it is too hot and cuts power to the motor.

thie switch is built into the motor and cannot be replaced. the only option is to change the motor unit itself.

please feel free to ask again for detailed fitting instructions if you decide to take this route.

Hi there,

Your DC07 is equipped with a thermostat designed to protect the motor. You should be able to resolve your issue by washing your filters and checking the cleaner for blockages. Our online guide may be useful in helping to do this:

Are the brushes worn down too far? As they wear the springs tension gets weaker. The brushes can also get stuck inside the channel they slide in. Could also be a buildup of dust etc inside and around the internal fan or commutator, etc.

What would cause this to shut off after a few minutes of use with full battery charge


1) test the power cord for open, broken, loose or defective with VOM
2) test the outlet wall, for ground improperly, and repair.
3) Most of the time is THERMAL fuse, replace or fix it.
God bless you

Mine takes longer to shut down, but I just started having this same problem. I wish I knew what's causing it so I could fix it. I think maybe we had a power surge at some point when I was using it last week. :(

I think there's a good chance of a clog that you haven't found. On the Dyson it's fairly easy to remove several covers that give you access. From the collection canister is a tube that runs toward the base. At the bottom of the tube you can remove a cover where you can check for a clog. Thats basically on the right side of the machine. From the rear side, very low and toward the middle right is a tab that you can push in and remove the tube that goes up into the flexible hose. Thats another good place for a clog to hide.

Hoover u5720-900 quits running and restarts again after some time


There is one more filter under where the collection tank & Hepa filter sits -- there is one screw that holds the cover down - remove that filter and clean it that will help. I also find I need to vacuum the hepa filter as well- it is too expensive to replace all the time. The Hepa filter can be placed inside a plastic bag and shaken really good to get the dust off of it
