Mt dyson dc5 wont start at all - have cleaned it and checked fuse but still wont start
My dc 05 isnt working and i cant understand why , i have cleaned all filters etc and i also changed the fuse on the plug , which after i didi that it attempted to start but then jus cut out again so i thought the fuse had blown again , so i checked the fuse but its working fine could there still be a blockage somewhere in it or is it something electrical which means my dyson has to go to the dump :(
Most common cause of this problem is a wire broken inside the flex, usually either just where it leaves the plug (easy to fix) or at the other end (more of a problem). In either case, this is no reason to dump the machine - it can be fixed at a fract ... Dyson DC05 Cylinder Bagless Canister Cyclonic Vacuum

Plugged my Dyson in this morning, switched it on and power came on for not even a second and died. No power what so ever to dyson - checked my house sockets, changed fuse. Still not working - dead as a door mouse. What could it be? Many thanks Sam
It is either your power cable, cable rewind mechanism or your motor. \012\012Try switching it on, and wiggling the lead near the plug and see if it fires up. If it does, remove the moulded plug and fit a standard plug. \012\012If not, lik ... Dyson DC08 Cylinder Bagless Canister Cyclonic Vacuum
No power Our dyson DC07 was working fine, then we pushed the button to turn it on. It started to run then shut off and now it is like the power is no longer there. I have checked outlets and they all work. Is there a fuse of some kind in this unit?? If so, how would I get to it?

Won't start. My son was using the vacuum & Didn't change the bag. The vacuum was making the full bag smell, but the light was't on & it didn't stop. I stopped him, changed the bag, checked the filter, closed the compartments & turned on the vacuum. Nothing happened. I checked to be sure that it was plugged in, that wasn't the problem. I've let the vacuum "rest" for several days, It still won't start. Any suggestions?

Kenmore canister model 116.25513506 wont turn on. when handle switch is turned to floor. vac motor does not turn on. When switch is turned to carpet, floor nozzle works but vac motor does not. I checked fuse, all o.k. checked continuity for plug, o.k. removed wires for bag full switch...motor wont run. I wired motor directly power cord...motor runs. Thinking it must be the circuit board, how do I bypass it or test it?

My Singer Izek sewing machine starts and stops and wont sew continuously. When I push down the pedal it sews about 2 inches then stops and light starts flashing, I have to let off of the pedal and push it again, over and over. It did this once before for awhile and then just started sewing right for awhile and now its started it again. I've checked everything.
If it's not the thread and not the pedal then it's definitely a power problem. You need to replace the power cable and then check again the functionality. ... Vacuums

I have checked for clogs but have found none. Bob
Its sounds to me like the computer board inside the machine has gone bad. Keep in mind that the filters in these machine do need to be replaced regularly to keep the vacuum working correctly. Any good vacuum shop should be able to fix your problem. R ... Windsor SR12 Sensor Bagged Upright Vacuum

It looks like you need a professional repair. If you're really lucky this may just be a break in the flex, or the switch has failed - both relatively cheap and simple to sort out. More likely, though, is a problem with the motor (carbon brushes worn ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
NO POWER My Dyson DCO4 Absolute (purple&lime) won't' switch on. I've checked the plug fuse, wall socket and also filters and hoses on machine all seem fine so think the problem is with the on/off button (maybe loose wire or something) but how do i get to it, is there a special way to remove the green on/off button in order to check the connection? Thankyou in advance for the help i am sure you will be able to provide.
The problem is almost certainly a fatigue break in the flex. These usually happen where the flex enters the handle through the rubber sleeve near the on off switch. You will need to cut about four inches off the wire and reconnect it to the switch. ... Vacuums
My purple Dyson Animal (without the ball) isn't working correctly. When I turn it on, the red power light, as well as the medium pile buttons flashes. When I first turn it on, the brush rotates for 3 to 5 seconds, then once I start moving the vacuum, it stops and that's when the lights start flashing. I've checked the filters, they are dry and installed correctly. What could be the problem?

My Dyson DC14 Blitz It will not switch on. I have checked the fuse in the plug and it is fine. I have also vreified that the switch is working by using a multimeter. I'm guesing that there is an internal fuse blown (or worse!). Any suggestions?
I ended up dismantling the Dyson in an effort to determine the problem. In doing so I discovered that if I rotated the motor backwards by a quarter of a turn, it came back to life. Rather odd really.

Terrible noise My dyson was working great then started making this horrible noise. I cleaned the bar but noise is still there. I discovered the beater bar went around three passes then froze and started horrible noise again. my husband got the bar turning but after 2 swipes vacuuming it did it again. Can it be fixed or is it time to retire it and buy a new one. Wendy Kiser
That noise is the clutch. A very expensive part and very hard to replace. When a problem with the clutch happens it's generally not worth the time and money to replace.I suggest getting a different type of vacuum, maybe a Miele or Sebo. W ... Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
