Panasonic MC-Ul425 why Does My Vacuum Shut OfF After A Few Minutes Of Use
Have a Centralux Aerus about 5 years old. Don't see a model number. There is suction but beater brush quit working. Was using for a few minutes, shut it off for a few minutes, turned it back on and suction only. Tried the reset button also. Tried the sidekick attachment and it works fine. There was no smell like something was hot. Belt is fine. Are there any fuses or anything else to try? This vacuum cleaner has not really been used that much, it is hard to believe the motor would need replaced
There probably is a loose wire in the handle near the switch or a wire off near the swivel elbow near the vac power head. With the right fastener tool to remove some screws you can fix it yourself ... Electrolux Centralux Vacuum

My Hoover Windtunnel Ultra U6425-900 began shutting off after a few minutes of vacuuming. The time interval became shorter and shorter. If I leave it sit a while, it will start again. This does not happen when I used the attachments - only with the floor brushes. The switch has recently been replaced and the whole vacuum serviced by a Hoover dealer about a year ago. I have been told by a local repair shop(not a Hoover dealer) that it is the motor, there is nothing to do other than replace t

The vacuum shuts down once it's used for about 20 minutes - overheating? If anybody has any ideas, give me a shout.
Seems to be a common problem with the Euro-Pros. They happen to wrap their motors with a foam filter. This acts as an insulating blanket, retaining a ton of heat. I removed mine, and so far, it works a lot better. ... Euro-Pro UV209 Upright Vacuum
No suction My Hoover Wind Tunnel vacuum runs but there is no suction. The last two or three times I used it, it shut itself off after having a burning smell. When I unplug it for the suggested 30 minutes, the motor will run again but no suction. What is wrong?? Should I just buy a nve one? This one is 8 years old.

It has a built-in temperature sensor which prevents it to be damaged from overheating. That's why it shuts down. It just needs to be opened up and cleaned thoroughly. Start with the hose if it has one and let someone who is handy with electric applia ... Vacuums
My electrolux oxygen vacuum cleaner shut off and will not turn back on. It's less than a year old, but I bought it off Craig's list--they were the orginal owner and they said they bought it in May of 2008. I've only used it a few times and it worked fine except for the last time when it suddenly just shut off. I thought maybe it had come unplugged and I didn't really worry about it because I was finished vacuuming. But, I went to use it tonight and it would not turn on at all--no lights, nothing

My vacuum cleaner will run for a few minutes and then shuts off. The plug light on the panel blinks. I thought the motor was shut, but after a long time it will turn on again, but again, only for a few minutes and then shuts off again. Any ideas? I bought an Oxygen Ultra a few years ago, but I don't like it nearly as much as the old Epic.

I have a DC 17. In the middle of vacuuming the vacuum stopped working when it was in the upright position. It only works when the head is down and i am using the bar. I can not use the extension bar, becasue when I put the vacuum upright it shuts off. Where is the problem?

We have a Kenmore Progressive Model 116 Upright bagged vacuum with Hepa filter. It's at least a couple years old.

My Shop Vac (Brand) Mdl#934-16-11 keeps shutting off while I'm dry vacuuming. I can turn it back on then it will shut off again. The filter is spotless, so that's not the issue. There isn't any reset buttons. The only thing I can think of is that the float for wet vacuuming is somehow being sucked up causing the the motor to be tripped off. The vacuum is only about a year and a half old and used only sparingly. Help!
My Dyson Animal has good suction and works fine for actually picking up dirt, but when I use the vacuum with the roller, I hear a grinding/rumbling noise. Its only when I use the vacuum with the brush rotating. It does not happen hen I shut the roller brush off. The belt is fine. I cannot figure out what is wrong as there are no clogs, debris, or foreign objects stuck in the brush or in the belt. The noise seems to be the only issue. The vacuum picks up fine. It just doesn't sound right a

I purchased a brand new Eureka Pet vacuum, sorry don't know exact name but it the one that has the self cleaning duster on it. Last night I used the vacuum on my carpet, it was working fine until I accidently sucked up the corner of a scarf that was hanging off a couch. I shut the vacuum off, pulled out the scarf and and resumed vacuuming. Much to my dismay the suction on the vacuum had ceased. Can you tell me if there is a reset button on the vacuum?

I just got a dirt devil cyclone quick lite for xmas and its wonderful, but in the last three weeks it shuts off by itself after just 10 minutes of vacuuming. I read the manuel and it says it has an automatic shut off when it over heats but 10 minutes? i mean it takes that long just to do one room and I have two floors the indicator on top is always green so I know its not the motor or service but is this the norm with these or is it just mine?
