you don't connect it up direct unless you want to destroy the compressor and burn the motor out
check for a reset or thermal overload button if it just shut down when over pressured
replace the pressure control switch is the best fix after checking out the motor condition
It sounds to me like during its move the drive belt came off off the motor that connects the motor to the walking surface. If the motor is not running at all after checking that I would look for a reset on the motor itself and check all connections. Not likely that the motor is fried but that would be the last in line for checking.
Ok, I just had this happen today. Very odd...vacuum cleaner just shut off on it's own. I checked the circuit breaker, checked the filter, checked the belt on the roller, checked the canister, checked for clogs...nothing. I then turned it on again...wow, came on in tilted position, shut off in upright position, wand would not work either. I didn't notice much suction as I have twp golden retrievers and when I got half my living room done, not much inside. I called Dyson...usually they tell me to take it in for repairs. I got a nice helpful man who told me there are two motors in this machine; one for the beater brush and one for everything else. He told me the one for everything else maybe over headed or something got clogged in the machine and the motor needed to reset itself. He told me to unplug it and leave it for about 90 minutes then it will work. Guess what? It did! He said there is no reset button so you just have to wait until it cools off and resets itself. So happy I got help from Dyson this time instead of just the same "take it in" answer. It is the best vacuum for dog hair and I didn't want to spend another $500 to $600 for a new one just yet.
did you ever find out the problem with your rainbow? Mine did the same thing today- turned on the switch yet nothing happened. Think it needs a new switch???? Do you know how to get canister apart after taking out first screws?
