Sounds like it is on the way out this may be because 1, you need to clean the filter cos when its dirty it stop air from going around the motor witch makes it get hot and overheat 2, also if you allow the bin to get to full this will also stop the motor from geting air to it so a good clean on your filter and bin will allow air to the motor then no overheating should accur

Dyson dc07 is getting really hot but is NOT cutting out

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

It's normal for a vacuum cleaner's exhaust air and casing to become warm in use, due to the heat created by the motor when it's running. Dyson vacuums are equipped with a thermal cutout device, and this will shut the vacuum down if it starts to overheat.

It's worth checking your machine for blockages, and giving the pre-filter a wash - we recommend doing this at least once every 3-6 months as shown in the video attached. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 12 hours for both parts of the filter to dry completely before replacing them.

As long as your DC07 is picking up as normal and isn't making an unusual noise or smell in use, there shouldn't be an issue. But if you're concerned, you're welcome to reach out to our experts for further advice. You can reach us by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

My dyson dc07 has started to smell a bit of burning.

This will be 1 of 2 problems.

1. If its a burnt rubber smell then its the belt that has gone and will need to be replaced.
2. If its a metalic smell then your motor is burnt out.


Replacing the belt is easy enough, the motor is a lot more complicated and should be left for an expert.

Hi the burning smell is from the Motor. Your Motor has burnt out. You will need it replaced.

A new motor will cost around £40

If you would like us to advise you on how to swap the motors over then please order the motor and come back to us.

On turning on different noise then noticed smell of burning then just stopped working and no power since. DC 07 Dyson.

Unfortunately your motor had burnt up..most times this is due to not cleaning or replacing the filters...the filters get dirty and the motor gets no airflow to cool it....very common on dyson vacs

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at https://www.6ya.com/expert/sean_54c3a3dc48a7773c

Dyson 07 plug gets very hot after prolonged vacuuming

Electrical current passes through the electric cord and plug - it will get warm, that's normal. If the problem is worse where you smell an electrical burning smell, only an authorized dealer can fit a new power cord to your vacuum cleaner. Call the Dyson helpline, they will let you know who the closest repair dealer in your area is.

Just stopped working

It's either a broken wire in the cable or if you smelled burning the motor has burnt out. Dyson can repair it for you either free under warranty or for £60 including a refurb and home visit by the engineer
