How to Reset a Dyson Vacuum

Dyson vacuum cleaners are not only compact and bagless, they come with a set of accessories to make vacuuming tight spots easier. Like other vacuums, Dyson vacuums do become clogged with debris and must be maintained to keep the vacuum working correctly. When the vacuum is clogged with string or waste, the device will shut off to keep from overheating. Dyson vacuums also contain a “reset” button for the device's brush bar in case it becomes entangled with string or thread.
