Having problems with your Broan-NuTone CV350 Central Vacuum ?
Why does the vacuum stop or shut off on its own after a few minutes?
Could be a bad connection in the controll circuit. Also a failing relay wouldn't be uncommon.
You could have a clog somewhere or the motor could be failing. Check for a clog in the system first, that's the most common problem with your issue.

While vacuuming the red light for the bag of the vacuum came on and the vacuum stopped. The bag was no where near full so I replaced it with a new bag - same problem. It vaccumes for a minute or then stops with bag light on. It is the correct bag for the machine - so what's the problem?

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.

Check the screen. It's located underneath the motor. You can see if it's clogged by removing the filter and with a flashlight look up at the bottom of the motor. If it is clogged, the easiest way to clean it is unplug the vacuum, disconnect the two m ... Electrolux Centralux 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?

I have an easy flo vacuum model # 199C and it won't shut off. It started out as an intermitent problem but now will not shut off when the hose is unplugged, nor when the off/on switch on the main unit is shut off. the only way to get the motor to stop running is to unplug the unit. Any ideas?
Just had this same problem. I unplugged the low voltage signal wires and the vacuum stayed on. Thus eliminating the possibility of the signal wires shorting out somewhere. I'm not really sure which wire(s) were causing the problem. But when I disasse ... Easy Flo EF1500 Vacuum

My Riccar 1700 will intermittently lose power while vacuuming. I have had the vacuum for 4 years and this is the second time that I have had this problem. The first time the authorized repairperson said the problem was a dirty hepa filter. The second time, the repairperson put on a "pig-tail"(?) and said that he did not have a shut-down problem when he tested the vacuum in the store. I just picked it up from the store today, brought it home and the same problem occurred within minutes.

We just purchased a Miele upright s7000. I vacuumed for 5 minutes (literally) and it completely shut down. Waited the suggested 30 minutes for cool down, but nothing happens. Waited another 30 minutes and still nothing. My husband checked for clogs according to the manual but still nothing at all. Is it just a dud?

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?

Every time I try to vacuum my apartment with my Dirt Devil Featherlite bagless vacuum, it shuts off before I have finished one or two rooms. I then have to wait 30 minutes before continuing. I had the vacuum for 2 months before exchanging it and it is doing the same thing with my new one. It seems to happen after the first time I empty the cannister. Any ideas?

My vacuum just stopped working, so I don't know what the problem is. I used it in the kitchen to vacuum the hard wood floor. I turned it off, and a few minutes later, turned it back on to finish vaccuuming the kitchen floor. It just would not turn on. I had not unplugged it or did anything to it. I then tried to see if it would work in another plug, and no luck. I'm trying to figure out if it can be fixed or if I need to look for a new vacuum.
When I get most Vacuums that have dies on people most of them the wire has been worn and cut one or more wires on the plug cord. Sometimes the cut can be over looked. Please unplug and check the wire carefully.Also please post the make model a ... Kenmore 23913 Progressive PowerMate Bagged Canister Vacuum

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
