If it's new and under warranty, contact the manufacturer.

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
Vaccum is making a loud high pitched sound, doesn't work well through the hose or the floor piece and shuts its self off after about 5 minutes. I have cleaned the entire vacuum out several times but this problem persists. Usually after I clean it, it'll work for a couple months, not this time. Vacuum is only 2 years old, is this typical?

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?
Your motor in the vacum is getting hot.Thats why it shuts off.Its fitted with a shut off switch to stop you doing any damage to it.1 The reason for getting to hot is that you are filling the cannister to full.Try emptying it half.good luck. ... Dirt Devil Featherlite Bagless Vacuum M085845Vacuum
My hoover vacuum runs for about 10-15 minutes then the saftey feature shuts it off(overheat?). i have taking it apart a cleaned it with no results, added new bag also. after an hour it cools down and works again. do i just need a new vacuum?
Do you have suction through the tools? Does it look like it picks up when it runs? The machine could be clogged and that would cause the problem, but unfortunately the sensor that shuts the machine off could be bad if the machine isnt clogged. Its no ...

SEBO vacuum cleaner makes a strange noise and shuts itself off after a few minutes. Suction not working when tube is attached, but works with hand-held portion only. Indicator light saying bag is full/clogged is on, but we've cleaned out the bag, cut away any fur/strings that were wrapped on the turning portion, and cleaned out the refuse valve. Not sure what else to do. Thanks!

After I run my vacuum for a couple of minutes it shuts off. If I unplug the vacuum and plug it into a different outlet most of the time it will start working again.
I would say check inside the plug and make sure the connections are tight. If the vacume runs fine on the other socket outlet then it will bw a faulty socket which cuts your hoover out.

Let's try this again. The main vacuum and hose works fine, the "foot" does not. When I turn it on, it shuts off automatically and the light comes on telling me to "check brushroll". I did this and removed all hair, strings, etc., Still won't work. Please respond. The last post took over 30 minutes with no response.
Sounds like you have hair or carpet buildup in the roller and it is not freely rotating and you are getting an error. If there is no buildup, then roller bearings may be frozen up, or the unit has a faulty capacitor and is not going to work due to el ... Vacuums

I have a Simplicity model 6970 upright vacuum. It picks up great and there is no smell but it will over heat in about ten minutes and shut down. There are no clogs. Once cool, I hit the thermal reset on the back at it works great again until it overheats again.
It could be electrical on the inside of the vaccum or your belt is the wrong size therefore making it over heat. Hope this helps?!Please rate and comment - Thank You ... Vacuums
Shark infinity vacuum nv31c motor overheats. everything is clean and free of clogs. it will work for 3-4 minutes, then shut off. does the motor need replacing?

Suction Problem I was vacuuming and stopped to empty the cannister. When I started vacuuming again - the suction wasn't working properly. The vacuum was just pushing stuff around the floor. I cleaned the hair out the brush on the bottom and it still isn't working. It was working fine before I emptied the tube :( I can't figure out what happened.Help!
Greetings from GoVacuum,\015\012\015\012I believe what may have happened is that your vacuum cleaner belt has either broken, or been stretched so far that ithe brushes are no longer spinning fast enough. \015\012\015\012Here' ... Vacuums
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?
Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.\012 \012 Like most Dyson vacuums, DC17's main suction motor is protected by a thermostat which shuts the machine down if it starts to overheat. This could be due to a blockage, and the filter may also need a wash ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
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

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.
