DC07 switching off & overheating

\015 My DC07 has also just started to overheat and then switch off after about 5 minutes. A few people have spoke about a possible blockage, even though I keep mine clean. I am going to take it apart as much as I can and clean - I will report back if diagonis is found, if not, then I will have to take it to a proper engineer!\015

Answers :

You can unclip the hose from the main body of the machine and you may be able to see any blockages as a result. Check your belt,beaterbar and replace your filters also. Make sure there is no blockage near the top of the machineover the small holes in the dust collection area.

My Dyson DC07 vacuum started to run slower after being on for a little while and then would run normally again. I have switched on today and it has just stopped. When I push the start button, on occasions it almost starts and then doesn't. I am wondering if there is a problem with the switch and if so how can it be fixed? Thankyou.
