My dirt devil keeps shutting off randomly

\015 When i vacuum my dirt devil will randomly shut off and wont turn back on until about an hour later. Then i'll start it up again and it'll go off after vacuuming for about 5 minutes. What do i do\015

Answers :

It's overheating. Empty the cup and replace the filters. There's a breaker that opens up and turns it off when it gets too hot. When it cools down it closes back up and it will run again. It'll argue with you til the end of time or until you fix the problem.
