Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. The most common reason for this problem with this style of vacuum is that the filter is blocked with extremely fine dust. You can test this by removing the filter and running it *NOT BY VACUUMING* without the filter. Just turn it on and let it run for 5 minutes if it does not turn off then your filter is slowing the airflo down so much that it is just like a blockage and the thermal overload is kicking in and shuttin off your vacuum. I have the filters for this vacuum listed on my website if you need to purchase a new one.

I have a Hoover, Steam spin scrub, Model F5897-900. Only used it a couple times and the motor gave out. First started being noisy then a bad smell.

** suction The best way to describe it is that when I was vacuuming I could see dust clouds at the front of the vacuum where the light is swirling around in the air.

So I cleaned it out and tried it again and it still was not picking up properly. I had my husband take all the tubing apart to check for other clogging and there was none. When I
