Clog and possible overheated

\015 In the middle of my vacuuming it up and stopped. Noticed there was a clog. Should I just wait until it cools down or do I need to take it in?\015\012Thanks, \015\012Jen\015

Hi Jen,
\015\012
\015\012It sounds like your vacuum overheated due to the clog. This is a protection feature most vacuum cleaners have to prevent the vacuums motor from burning out due to a lack of air flow. The safety switch will activate and shut the machine off for a short period of time until the motor has cooled.
\015\012
\015\012You should remove the clog from the vacuum, and make sure that your filters are clean. This model has a hidden filter directly underneath of the bagless dirt cup in a black tray that says "PULL". Pull this tray out, inspect the filter, and if dirty rinse under water until clean. Make sure that the filter is completely dry before reinstalling and using the vacuum cleaner again.
\015\012
\015\012After inspecting all of the filters and removing the clog, let the vacuum cool down (usually just a few hours) and try to turn it on again. When you turn it on, remove the attachment hose and make sure that you have suction from the hose. When putting the attachment hose back down into the floor section of the vacuum, listen to see if you hear a change in the noise the motor makes. If you hear a higher pitched squeeling noise, this indicates that there may be a clog in the lower section of the vacuum as well. If the noise is the same then you should be ok.
\015\012
\015\012If the vacuum continues to shut itself off, then either the clog has not been completely removed, or the safety thermal switch inside may now be faulty, and only at this point should you take your machine into a repair store.

\015\012I hope that this helped you!

How to disassemble the brush to empty anything that might be stuck inside of the brush? The motor seems to be overheating, all belts have been checked, all airways are clear and the filter is clean. The vacuum is vibrating and releasing a burning smell, but still sucking up dirt. There is nothing stuck on the outside of the brush, but is there a way to check inside of it to see if that is where a clog is occuring?

Hi, A few days ago I bought a Philips hairdryer (HP4935/22) & have used it only twice. Somehow when I used it this morning some of my hair got caught in the filter at the back of the dryer & the motor slowed down & I think overheated & stopped. Normally the filters come off but I don't think this one does. I haven't turned it back on so as not to possibly damage it even more. I am quite upset as I really love this hairdryer. It's quiet, light, small, powerful & does the job brilliantly. I h
