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.

Many devices including this one have what's known as a thermal cut out.
It is there for obvious safety reasons and prevents the temperature in the locality of the cut out from exceeding a pre-defined value.
Some of them require you to press a reset button in order to switch the power back on and other types simply reconnect the electricity supply when the temperature returns to normal (safe) operating limits.
The Dyson DC07 has a thermal cut out located close to the motor and it is of the "self resetting" type.
If your vacuum cleaner switches off after a few minutes the most probable cause (there can be others) is the thermal cut out has operated.
The first and most important thing to do is to establish why it has operated.... If the airflow around the motor has become restricted then it will not be being sufficiently cooled and so it will have cut out correctly. However, thermal cut outs are often quite crude internally and it is not uncommon for them to start cutting out at too low a temperature. So...
Here's what to do...
(some tools may be required to complete the following so read the entire procedure before starting. Please note this is not an absolute guide if you need really foolproof step by step instructions... buy a manual! But this should help)
There are now only two areas left that I know of which may cause further blockages. One is the "whole of life filter" located under the dust bin and the other one is inside each of those seven little cones (cyclonic chambers) at the top of the dust bin (root 8 cyclone is usually written on one of them). The following will require some tools and some common sense...
**** WARNING**** The next section requires someone who is technically minded, has fiddly fingers patience and a basic understanding of typical plastic goods assembly techniques. As I am not including photo's the descriptions given can only be considered as pointers to how to do it (I'm not writing a Haynes manual here! So if you are a cak handed clot with little or no patience and a tendency to resort to ever bigger hammers - take the vacuum cleaner to an independent repair shop - explain the symptoms, tell them what you have done so far and leave it to them!!
NB. NEVER remove or bypass the cut out. this really could be very dangerous!
I hope this is of some help... Regards to all.

Is the machine not turning on? There may be a push button circuit breaker on this machine but I doubt it. I have no personel experience with this specific device. Are you sure you have power going to the sweeper? All guards, filters and shields are in their proper place?
Let me know

Usually a plugged hose can be cleared using a broom handle, if you can force the blockage through, if not as previously suggested a coat hanger attached to the broom handle (duck tape will do) straighten out hanger so it can be used like a cork screw to screw into the blockage and pull it out, socks,underwear and pantyhose are the usual suspects!
