Dyson DC23 Vacuum shut off and came on. Thought it was a problem at the electrical outlet as when moving plug it would come on again. Seen canister was full, emptied it and cyclone was quite plugged up so poked out the dirt. Had dog hairs in it as well as some ashes I had just vacuumed. Plugged unit in again and pressed switch. Will not come on. Tried another outlet. Is there a reset button somewhere or could the ashes have seized the motor. What can I try besides taking it to a repair sho

I have a DYSON ROOT cycle carpet cleaner. It is cleaned and looked after and is in perfect working order. However, I have been using this machine, with inserted ear plugs, since the day I bought it. The noise is driving me mad! I have never owned such a noisy machine. Do you have a cure for this jet engine noise, or is there no choice but to purchase another machine which is not DYSON?
