Dyson dc7 quits after a few minutes running; runs again after an hour or two of rest. Filters are clean, beater bar is clean, can't tell about the airways because I can't see how to get to them.
Check the ducts with a small object(screw or something with a little weight)down the ducts to verify they are clean. Also check the Ubend on the back bottom of the unit. Looks just like a U. Remove with a turn of the tab by a screwdriver or quarter ... Vacuums
Overheated vacuum After I finished vacuuming the library last night I changed the bag and shook out both filters and vacuum would not restart. The canister unit felt real warm to the touch but I had been using it a least 1/2 hour non stop. The bag was pretty full but not overly so. It's a Simplicity canister with power head. The carpet is long shag from the 70's Did it just over heat? Thanks Shauna
It normally won't over heat unless the bag is too full, the filters are clogged, or you have have a clog in the hose or down by the brush roll, the inlet may be clogged. Some will restart after a while, some others have a reset to push. If it won't ... Simplicity 7850 Premier Bagged Canister Vacuum

I have a DC17 which is only one year old. Today I lost suction and called for assistance. A Dyson technician told me to pull off the wand and see if it is clear.

My hoover vacuum runs for about 10-15 minutes then the saftey feature shuts it off(overheat?). i have taking it apart a cleaned it with no results, added new bag also. after an hour it cools down and works again. do i just need a new vacuum?

Replacing filter Got a Filter Queen Majestic vacuum from my inlaws when they moved overseas. I am in middle of vacuuming, got a weird noise, so opted to check and clean the filter for first time. UGH. The lower 'pot' that's the bottom part of the thing was full of gunk, but the filter pristine clean against the cone that's attached to the upper part of the unit. In other words, I am shocked to see that the dirt goes not INTO the filter, but outside of it into the bottom portion (that I call the
