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.

Roomba Stops I've had a Roomba for about 2 months. Lately, it runs for about 45 secs, then stops, makes a two-tone (descending) sound, and flashes the CLEAN button while the STATUS button is red. I've emptied the dustbin on it. Can you help? I am seeing the same problem on my roomba today. I cleaned all that I could., the brushes, the pins on the sides and all that and it still gives the same problem..Any other fix?
