Title: What is this Part / What is Wrong? DC14
Post by: Milkatron on November 22, 2021, 09:10:35 PM
When I use the hose and block the end of the hose with my hand it trips this thing. It resets once I turn the vacuum off.

So I'm guessing it's normal for if the hand blocks it, but it seems even normal use is tripping it.

It seems like this is a safety so the motor doesn't burn out if there isn't decent air flow so I have purchased some filters thinking this may be what's causing it?

Filters would the place to start indeed.
