Cutting out after five minutes use
\015 My Dyson DC05 keeps cutting out - because it overheats I think - after about five minutes use. Once it cools down, I can use it again. Very frustrating. Also, the suction is nowhere near as good as it used to be.\015\012\015\012Thanks, Kate\015

I have a vax power 6 hoover, this was bought in January this year replacing the previous 2 I had bought in 2012. I get the same problem each time in that the hoover cuts out after using it for 5 minutes and I cannot use it again for another half an hour. WHAT IS THE PROBLEM WITH IT?
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.

I have a Zanussi 1700W bagless upright vacuum cleaner which keeps cutting out after about 5/10 mins use. I had to replace the rubber drive belt which snapped not long after purchasing and it was fine for a while, but now its just keeps cutting out after a small amount of use. Nothing wrong with belt which is still intact so we don't know what the problem is. It's a great cleaner otherwise - but it's driving us mad!! Please help!

Have a Centralux Aerus about 5 years old. Don't see a model number. There is suction but beater brush quit working. Was using for a few minutes, shut it off for a few minutes, turned it back on and suction only. Tried the reset button also. Tried the sidekick attachment and it works fine. There was no smell like something was hot. Belt is fine. Are there any fuses or anything else to try?
