Having problems with your Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?

After using the unit for a few minutes it cuts off.

\015 Apparently something is overheating in the circuitry. The unit will shut off after using it for several minutes. After sitting for a few minutes to cool down it will operate normally again for a few minutes until it apparently overheats and shuts off again.\015

Answers :

The electric motor inside your Dyson has a built in over-current trip to protect itself (and you if it seriously overheated and caught fire). This normally automatically resets itself, however if the motor has just about had it, next time it is switched on it just trips again.

The primary cause of motors overheating is that the filters are not cleaned or replaced frequently enough. Dont be fooled by Dyson's "lifetime filters". They need to be regularly cleaned and replaced when necessary.

Replacement motors are available on eBay for about £25, however replacing one requires good DIY skills and tools.

Have a look at www.dysonmedic.com and see if you feel you can tackle it yourself. If not, take it to a repair shop or call the Dyson helpline.

The unit works fine for 10-15 minutes, then the power cuts off. If I let it rest for 15-20 minutes, sometime it starts right up again. The filters clean clean, the brushes are not restricted, the retainer is empty. ???? Tom Abbott

DC07 cuts out and stops after about 1 minute's use. It will restart after being left for c. 5 minutes. It seems, therefore that it must be overheating, but an independent electrician could not find any problem.

My brand-new Hoover Windtunnel T-Series Pet Rewind Bagless vac simply shut off while I was using it and now I can't get it to turn back on. I've emptied the dirt collection bin and let the unit sit unplugged for 30 minutes to reset the Thermal Protector as per the manual. I've even tried a few different outlets just in case a fuse got tripped, but the vac still won't turn on. What happened? Do I need to return this vac to the store? I just bought it 5 hours ago.

After using the vac for 10 minutes or so, the motor starts turning on and off with greater frequency the longer I let it run. Eventually it is on and off so frequently that it has no power. Would this possibly be the 24V relay? I have checked the breaker on the unit and it is not tripped. Does the motor have a thermal overload switch separate from the breaker?


No it dosen't. I fix central vacs all the time and relays usally don't do what you described. They either go out all the way and won't turn on or they will trip and you will have to push the breaker back in. What is probably happening is you have a s ... Electrolux Centralux Vacuum

The electronics in my Sunbeam TA200A Toaster is playing up. The Toaster is sometime popping the toast up after the right amount of time, but sometimes it pops up a minute later than it should (burning the toast) I have open up the control panel buttons and inspected the array of transistors and resistors that is used for the timing mechanism and a visual inspection doesn't indicate a problem.

I just bought a Hoover Platinum Collection MaxExtract Carpet Cleaner (Model No. F8100900). This is the first time I've used it and got half way through one room and the unit cut off and has no power at all. No lights anywhere. On/Off button is inoperable. I checked the outlet and it's still operating so it's not a circuit breaker issue. The problem appears to be with the machine. Has anyone heard of this happening this quickly? Is there a reset button on the machine>
