Please note: In normal use, the Brush bar automatically turns off when the machine is upright and automatically turns on when the machine is in the vacuuming position.

When did the machine last have power?

Thermal cut out

Most Dyson vacuums have a built in safety system that stops the machine if it begins to overheat. This usually happens because the filters need washing or your machine is blocked.

Carry out the performance checks, and if your machine cuts out unplug and leave for at least 2 hours to cool down.

If the customer prefers to check the machine when the power has returned, wait for a minimum of 2 hours and ask them to call back.

Check electrical supply

Is the power cord or plug damaged?

Are the other household appliances working?

Does the vacuum work when plugged into another socket?

Has checking the electrics resolved the problem?

Press the switch

Press the rear of the switch to make sure it stays in the on position.

Please note: The switch does not light up.

Please select the appropriate option

Check the bin and cyclone

A damp or musty smell is caused when dust in the cyclone has come into contact with water.

It may not be a direct contact with water, for example when vacuuming pet hair that is slightly damp, this moisture will combine with the dust in the cyclone causing the smell.

Additionally the smell may occur if the filter goes back into the machine wet.

Press the button at the top of the cyclone handle and remove the bin from the machine.

Press the button again to open the bin base.

Press the button near the rectangular inlet to separate the clear bin from the cyclone.

The clear bin can be wiped with a damp cloth.

WARNING: Do not use any detergent or polish on any part of the machine.

Check the bin and cyclone for blockages and remove as necessary.

Clear any hair or fibres from the cyclone shroud

Do not use any water on the cyclone.

Once the parts are completely dry, reassemble and test the machine.
