Most likely clogged. It turns off to protect the motor.
Check suction at the end of hose, look through wand, check intake hole behind the brushroller.

    You probably got a blockage in your wand which caused it to overheat and cut out. Check for blockages, use a brush stale down the tube to dislodge anything. Next, check your filters, refer to the tutorials here: Looking after your Dyson.

    SOURCE: my dyson vacuum has no power.

    Get an ohm meter (found on basically any multimeter), also called a continuency meter. its the setting that beeps when you have a straight line running from point a to b on a wire. 

    Unplug the vacuum. Test the cable from the plug to where it goes into the switch.Turn the switch on and test the points at the switch. Test the 2 wires running from the switch to the motor. make sure the 2 wires are plugged into the motor. Make sure the brushes on the motor is making contact with the armature. if they all test good, your motor has blown and will need replacing.

    How do i put the wand back together on a rainbow e-series ?


    The wire schematics in the handle assembly has four total wires. Two from the hose and two from the Receptacle Nozzle. Take one wire from the hose and one wire from the receptacle and connect together. Take the second wire from the hose and connect to the Switch Handle PN2E PN2. Take the second wire from the receptacle and connect to the other switch terminal. If you need more details, you can download the schematics at Rainbow Vacuum Schematics or you can call us at 800-523-0510.

    The extended vacuum tool will not retract into the handle and therefore no "vacumm" is created


    the wand ? if the wand won't go back into the hose, sprinkle baby powder on it and see if that helps. The inside of Dyson hoses get sticky after a few years.

    Dyson dc25 animal retractable wand won't go back


    Did you try to release the extension by clicking on the red button on the back of the wand? This may allow you to see what is obstructing the pathway for the wand..

    Sweeper stopped after using wand


    Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.
    Most of our vacuums include a thermal cut out, which shuts the machine off if it starts to overheat. Usually this will be because the filter needs a wash, or because there's a blockage in the machine. From what you've described it sounds like there's a blockage in the hose, wand or duct.
    To resolve this, please follow the steps shown in our online Support guide: http://content.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=954&product=DC17-ANIMAL
    It's important to wash your machine's filter at least once every 3-6 months, as shown in the video above. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 24 hours for it to dry completely before replacing it.
    This should resolve the issue, but if you would like some further advice from our experts, please email us at askdysonUS@dyson.com. We'll be in touch as soon as possible.

    My hose will not come out and extend. If I can


    Hi its Darran at Dyson.

    If you are able to remove the hose and wand assembly, its worth checking for a blockage as this can cause the wand/hose to be difficult to remove and put back in place.

    If you need further assistance, please call our Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).

    Kind regards

    Dyson dc25 animal: cannot remove the telescope reach wand.


    The hose is getting twisted on the machine and so the wand gets stuck in the hose.

    1) Pull the wand out as far as you can - if you can pull it out completely, separate it from the hose and apply baby powder to the
    metal rod. Stretch out the hose and unwind it. In the future, separate the wand and unwind/stretch the hose after use.
    2) If you can't pull the wand out all the way, remove the canister/dirt bin from the front. Look for a gray button with 7 vertical
    lines/grooves on it (it'll be just above the ball on the opposite side of the bottom hook that you wind the cable around).
    3) Push the button and at the same time pull the hose out from the bottom by pulling on the hook - this will release the gray hose
    from the machine. Take it off of the machine if possible (the bottom of the wand may stop you from doing so - if it does, try to pull
    the wand out until you can release the hose from the bottom)
    4) Pull and stretch the hose out and pull the wand at the same time - separate the wand from the hose and unwind the gray hose and
    stretch it out. Rub baby powder on the metal rod of the wand and in future, disconnect the wand from the hose and stretch/unwind the
    hose after every time you use the wand.

    I have Dyson animla and the wand stop working....no bloc anywhere


    The hose is getting twisted on the machine and that makes it difficult to pull it out.
    1) Pull the wand out as far as you can - if you can pull it out completely, separate it from the hose and apply baby powder to the metal rod. Stretch out the hose and unwind it. In the future, separate the wand and unwind/stretch the hose after use.
    2) If you can't pull the wand out all the way, remove the u-bend from the bottom of the machine - turn that plastic screw at the bottom next to the gray hose 45 degrees anti-clockwise and take the u-bend off.
    3) Pull the hose out from the bottom (don't pull it out all the way - just enough to release the wand) and pull the wand at the same time - separate the wand from the hose and unwind the gray hose and stretch it out. Rub baby powder on the metal rod of the wand and in future, disconnect the wand from the hose and stretch/unwind the hose after every time you use the wand.

    Brush does not turn on my vaccum


    When you attach the hose to the wands, there is a connection made between the hose electrical receptacle and the cord from the powerhead. On the Kenmore, it is common for the receptacle on the hose to break away from it's seat and slide back into the handle. When this happens, the receptacle is not positioned far enough forward to make the plug-in connection. Look at the end of the hose and check the receptacle and see if it is sitting flush with the plastic opening that it sits in. If it is pushed back, that's your problem. Also check the re-set breaker on the powerhead. If you got something caught in the brush roll, the breaker will have kicked out to protect the motor.
