This can happen if you have an intermittent short in your cord. Try plugging it in and then wiggling the cord around where it goes into the body of the vacuum with the switch set to "on." (If you're not sure whether it's on or off, just click it back and forth occasionally.)
If the motor kicks on there's a short, which usually requires a cord replacement. If that's the case, it's a relatively simple fix for most dyson models.
If not, you could have a short in your switch or somewhere else in the electrical system of the machine.

Replace the switch! It shut down when battery get depleted. and then when you start it again the cycle is shorter because the batery regenerate but not as previous cycle.

Actually ours is a Princess II made by Filter Queen, purchased in 1987. Wondering if motor going bad because when switch on sometimes it starts fine but other times you have to push the switch several...


It sounds like it's probably the switch. It could also be loose wiring connection to the switch, which can result in sparking. This presents a fire and/or shock hazard. Don't use it until you get it repaired. I do recommend having the vacuum checked out for a definite diagnosis. You're right about it possibly needing a new motor.

DC07 stops after short time using and will not start until it has rested for a while. Is it running out of steam like it's owner?


You could try washing the blue filter. This happened to mine and when I washed the filter according to instructions I found on the Dyson website it was fine!

Irobot scooba 5800 spins quickly then sets off backwards


Remove and clean all of the wheels, and make sure the cliff sensors under the bumper are clean. Tap the bumper with your hand-- really smack it a couple of times. It sounds like the Scooba believes it's stuck against an obstacle.

Rainbow stops shortly after starting to vacuum


There is a thermal fuse on the motor field that sometimes fails. Sometimes the fuse does what it is supposed to do - prevents motor from overheating.
Causes:
a) Improperly worn motor brushes
b) bad motor bearings (that usually leads to uneven motor brush wear)
c) very dirty cooling air filter

To access filter and the motor - use small flat screwdriver to remove clear side panels. You will see 4 or 6 Phillips screws. Remove screws - cap will come off.

Good Luck,
Rocky
