Cuts out after 5mins

My dyson stops working after 5mins, just cuts out. will start working again when it has cooled down. I have cleaned all the filters and the cyclone, but this has made no difference.

    The vacuum (dyson DC07) will work for a few minutes, then just cut out. I have emptied the dust bin and cleaned the filter. What are my other options before I have to replace parts?

Hi Dave. The chances are that the thermal protect device is faulty or the carbon brushes are on there way out.

Vacuum will be working and then it cuts out, like it loses power. Plug it into a different outlet and it starts working again.


Your vacuum has a thermal reset built into the motor. If it is getting to hot it will shut off and won't turn on until it cools down. This is a sign of a clog somewhere or the filters need to be replaced. If you are getting dust building up on the vacuum that is an indicator the filters may need replaced.

Dyson stopped working.


Have you tried starting it again? It might have stopped because it overheated and now that it has cooled it should start again. If not, then possibly the power switch or power cord has failed.

Dyson dc07 keeps cutting out after few minutes


This is a sure sign of a blockage. The motor cuts out because it gets too hot and will start again when it has cooled. Follow the instructions in your user manual for clearing blockages (you can download a copy from the Dyson website if necessary). Make sure the washable filter is clean too (and completely dry before you use it).

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/.

Dyson


the automatic cut out switch on the motor needs replacing when the motor gets hot this switch comes in and stops the motor from overheating when the motor cools down the cleaner will work again and cut out again when the motor gets hot if it is not replaced it will eventually burn the motor out after the switch has been replaced both the filter and cyclone need to be cleaned on a regular basis or the same will happen again

This is from the Dyson web page:
Get expert help Thermal cut out Most Dyson vacuums have a built in safety system that stops the machine if it begins to overheat. This usually happens because the filter needs washing or your machine is blocked. If your machine turns off on its own, unplug it and leave it for at least an hour to cool down. Remember to check the filter and look for blockages before re-starting.
Any non- domestic use may adversely affect the filter performance such as vacuuming up plaster dust.


Sounds like your vacuum is overheating. Check the above.
