Having problems with your Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?
My vacuums power shut off while vacuuming
\015 While vaccuming my dyson shut off. I unplugged it and plugged it back in, it won't turn on. It's happened once before and it shortly turned on afterward, after about 20 minutes.\015
Its a good chance that your vacuum motor has either shorted out or become burnt out, this can happen after a few years of use. My only real suggestion, being what i would do in your situation, either contact dyson and try and get another motor, alternatively, contact a 2nd hand motor place, maybe a white goods store, and they may have a vacuum motor to suit as Dyson spare parts can be expensive. I hope this offers some assistance.

My Riccar 1700 will intermittently lose power while vacuuming. I have had the vacuum for 4 years and this is the second time that I have had this problem. The first time the authorized repairperson said the problem was a dirty hepa filter. The second time, the repairperson put on a "pig-tail"(?) and said that he did not have a shut-down problem when he tested the vacuum in the store. I just picked it up from the store today, brought it home and the same problem occurred within minutes.

I have a Windsor Sensor s12 and power shuts off after 5 min. of vacuuming. I'm wondering if it's overheating of if there is some other sensor that causes it to shut off.

Power nozzle on E-series won't start when cold unless the red 'reset' button is pressed multiple times while also holding the trigger to 'warm it up'...this is w/the power nozzle off the floor - no restriction on it turning. Once it's been running and then turned off the button must be pressed w/the trigger to get it to run - again w/the nozzle off the floor. It also seems to shut off too easily while vacuuming. I replaced the motor,which didn't fix it. Is the reset switch next on my list? T

I have a Harmony vacuum that's a couple years old. I recently sucked a fair amount of dog hair into it and was unaware something was amiss since the things so quiet. It just shut down and wouldn't come back on. 10 minutes or so later it came back on but now it's got no sucking power. I figure I torched the motor. Good guess?
