Where is the Reset button on Dyson 33 vacuum?


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC33 doesn't include a reset button. The motor is equipped with a thermal cutout sensor, which will shut the machine down for protection if something causes it to overheat. This will reset itself automatically once it's been allowed to cool down for at least three hours.

To prevent this from reoccurring we'd recommend washing both filters in cold water without detergent, and checking the machine for blockages. Our online Support guide will walk you through each step: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc33/dc33-multi-floor/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-won-t-switch-on-or-cuts-out/thermal-cut-out

My dyson just stopped running while vacuuming with wand


You probably got a blockage in your wand which caused it to overheat and cut out. Check for blockages, use a brush stale down the tube to dislodge anything. Next, check your filters, refer to the tutorials here: Looking after your Dyson.

DOES THE DYSON ANIMAL HAVE A RESET BUTTON.

So, if anything causes it to overheat, it will switch off. If this happens, leave the cleaner switched off for at least two hours, as it will not start again until it has cooled down.

The most common cause of a cut-out is that the cleaner has a blockage or the filter needs washing. A high room temperature may also trigger it. Before you continue vacuuming, ensure the filter is clean and there are no blockages. You can download the user guide at www.dyson.co.uk/support/.

Machine cuts out due to getting hot


most vacuums have a heat resister in when they overheat they cut out, this is normally because they are full up, got a blockage or the filters need cleaning, suggestions are, clean filters, empty and check for blockage.

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.
