Having problems with your Vacuums ?
Hoover cuts out after 5 minutes and will not restart until its cooled down.
OK - so it cuts out because it's overheating. The cause of this is almost always a blockage. You don't say what model of vacuum this is, so I can't guide you where to look. If you've got flexible hoses, check them. Also check all filters and any other airways you can get at. If you are 100 percent sure that everything is clear, but the problem persists, then the motor's at the end of its useful life.

Brush turning slowly while shampooing. It starts out fast, but after a minute or 2 the brush is not spinning very fast. I have powered it off and let it cool down. I just started out so I can't believe the engine is over heating, just doing 2 rooms, can't even get through the first room. If I take the brush attachment off, then put it back on and then turn it on, it spins fast, but after a a few minutes, it's spinning softly/slowly again. Kirby diamond edition
