Answers :

Your Dyson is designed to cut out if it becomes overheated, and it then takes about half an hour to cool down properly. If you don't resolve the problem, it will soon cutout again. Clogeed filters or other blockages are the usual cause of cutting out, but there are others, for example, incorrectly fitting valves, or broken belt. You need to do more cleaning. Follow the step by step instructions for your model, which can be found here.
