Dyson hair dryer keeps shutting off

My hair dryer turns on for seconds and then shuts off. I have checked and cleaned the filter, there are no issues with the cord or outlet. I store the dryer in a safe, cool place.

I purchased my Dyson hair dryer 3 years ago and in the last month I can’t use it to dry my hair due to the constant shutting off. This should last more than 3 years.

Hey @Suzyflorida 

This is not normal behaviour. More often than not, when a dryer shuts off, it’s due to an overheating issue. The most common cause of that is the filter, and you can read more about machine maintenance on our community article happily named ‘Maintaining your Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer.’.

If you’re still stuck, I’d urge you to visit the Dyson website and navigate through to the ‘Troubleshooting’ option - here you’ll have some additional resource and instructions on the next steps. Use our Guides and manuals to get started.
