I have a problem with my Dyson DC07 (one of the root cyclone ones). The motor keeps cutting out after about 5 minutes when first used, and then you have to wait for a few minutes until it can be used and ten the motor cuts out every couple of minutes, as I think perhaps it's overheating and there must be a thermistor on the windings.

I have reached the conclusion that I probably ned to replace the motor, so the question is where can I get one. Also is it the same motor as in all upright Dysons, or do the use different motors??

Thanks. :?

Different motors across the range..... The one you need is here: ... cts_id=210

The motor will be shutting down on the thermal cut-out, therefore the motor is running hot. It is air-cooled, so check for restrictions, condition of filters and the like. The cone section at the top of the dust bin is notorious for choking up.

Which bit of "Unplug it" is causing the problem?
