My dirt devil DHC001 hand held vacuum just stopped working whilst it was switched on. It is quite hot and I have checked that it is not the socket.

SOURCE: dirt devil purpose for pets vacuum quit working

The motor overheats from the filter being clogged underneath the canister or the canister or both are clogged-without the air flow the motor overheats and shuts off as a precautionary measure.By letting the motor cool off it will start again but will turn off shortly if the filters are not properly cleaned.Hope this helps everyone.

SOURCE: our dirt devil bagless upright

Hi, no im afraid its not that easy, the problem is with the wire that goes into the vac from the mains, now you see where the mains lead goes through in the back of the vac well what happens is when you vacing and moving the vac around this part wears and causes a short or loss of connection, now it usually happens when your using it then the free cable runs out and it pulls on the vac when you try goign further than the wire reaches, so the problem you are having is with the connection between the wire and the on/off switch, this is a very common fault with all vacs of this type.

to fix it your going to need to remove the cylinder and see if their is an access panel on the front of the vac behind the cylinder you take off to empty.

how ever if you have no electrical skills then its not safe for me to tell you how to do this repair, if you get it wrong you could do harm to anyone who uses the vac ok so be warned i have told you this ok.

the work involves removing the panel the other side of the switch then you need to undo the wires going to the switch you then need to pull the mains wire out of the vac so its no longer connected then cut it back 3 or 4 inches so as the part that is faulty has gone then you need to fit it all back together the right way round and make sure their is no bare wire showing and that it is all secure and then it should work.

but before you do all that check the fuse in the plug first as if its got hot this fuse may have blown so i would check that first before you decide what to do next ok.

it wont cost much to pay someone to do this as it wont require any parts, if you could take it to a reapir shop yourself then that will be even cheaper as you wont be paying a call out fee, also check if you have any warranty left on it as this fault wil be covered

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

please can you rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Dirt devil turbo clean sd40060 Cyclonic vacuum. Was given it as a present. Floor tool won't spin. Checked everything! Belt, for hair through out. All ok. Why isn't it working?

You should find a large button or flap on the floor tool. This is usually spring loaded and needs to be OUT. This should then let air in to drive the turbine which drives the spinner.
