Most Dyson vacuums have a built in safety system that stops the machine if it begins to overheat. This usually happens because the machine or tools are blocked. If your machine cuts out, unplug it and leave it for at least an hour to cool down. Remember to turn the power off and unplug the machine before you check for blockages prior to re-starting the machine.
