Shuts off after a couple minutes of use

\015 I have this vacuum and after using it for a couple minutes, it shuts off on its own. I put a new filter in it and still shuts off.\015

Answers :

Sounds like it is stopped up. The vac gets overheated and the thermal switch does its job. Check suction from the hose and see what you get. If good then check the brush housing for a clog.

I was cleaning my carpet using my hoover steamvac ls. I had already changed the water 3 times. The last time, the water ran out and I kept running it for a couple of minutes trying to **** up some of the water off the carpet when it just shut down. I check the breaker and the outlet and they were OK. Checked my manual for troubleshooting; couldn't find an answer there. Do you think I burned the motor up (I didn't smell anything) or will I have to send it in for repair? When I clicked on your web

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.

I have a Harmony vacuum that's a couple years old. I recently sucked a fair amount of dog hair into it and was unaware something was amiss since the things so quiet. It just shut down and wouldn't come back on. 10 minutes or so later it came back on but now it's got no sucking power. I figure I torched the motor. Good guess?
