Lux vaccum cleaner D775 Classic shuts off after working for a few minutes
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?

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!

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 Bissell 1623-1 Steam Cleaner. It will work good for about 2 minutes and then after that it will not dispense cleaning solution on floor or through the hand held wand.I have replaced both drive belts with no improvement. I have cleaned it and found no obstructions in hoses and spray nozzles, put back together and it still will not dispense. Is it possible the pump or solenoid is no working? Aaron

I have a Kenmore Elegance Vacuum with Dirt Sensor, Model # 116.30750400C, Serial number M41901532.

Pro heat carpet cleaner will not pump solution to either cleaner head...sometimes, at first, pump will work for about 1 minute or so...tried re-seating the tank, but no good...what should I check?
The very best thing to do is to fill the dispenser tank with hot water....just plain hot water. Take it outside on concrete, so you can see what you're doing, and operate the cleaner heads.

After running for 15 minutes, the windtunnel vacuum cleaner shuts off. It will not restart until it has been off for 30 minutes. Could it be overheating for some reason. All of the filters are clean; the dust tank is empty; the belts have no cracks.
It's not necessarily overheating, but the thermal-fuse is definitely tripping and it takes 30 minutes to reset. There are several causes of this (in most common order):\015\012\015\0121. A blockage in the suction system or a full dust tan ... Hoover U6630-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum
Last year my wife and I bought a new Dirt Devil Reaction All Surface vaccuum cleaner to replace the older Platinum Force. After using it a couple of times the new one gets clogged with dog hair easily and shuts down. I cleaned it out completely including the hepa filter but it will not handle the dog hair. The old one never had a problem and still works. We went back to using the old vaccuum cleaner because we can not find the receipt and had not registered the new one and are stuck with a new 1

I just bought a westinghouse unplugged vacuum cleaner.( It is new) The design is awesome, and when it works it works great . But it has very short battery life. 1 battery lasts only about 5 minutes, and the other is even less. I did all the instructions told me as far as conditioning and charge yet I still do not get a very solid amount of vacuuming time. Is there any thing I can do?
Usually a short battery life means bad battries that aren't holding its charge. Being new I would think it would have a year's warranty on it. Find out who is the closest warranty shop and have them fix it. ... Vacuums
Why does my dyson slim dc18 keep shutting down, even though i keep it clean. Filters area is clean and all others have been properly blown out with air from a air compressor. It will work for about 5-10 minutes and then shuts down. Smells like ****, check the belt and a bit later it restarts again. It's seems to be almost over heating.
Maybe your motor is going. Here's a link to a site that talks about motor failure and replacement in a DC07 (not DC18). I don't know exactly what the odor smells like but maybe you can see if you have any of the other symptoms. Good luck! ...

My electrolux oxygen vacuum cleaner shut off and will not turn back on. It's less than a year old, but I bought it off Craig's list--they were the orginal owner and they said they bought it in May of 2008. I've only used it a few times and it worked fine except for the last time when it suddenly just shut off. I thought maybe it had come unplugged and I didn't really worry about it because I was finished vacuuming. But, I went to use it tonight and it would not turn on at all--no lights, nothing

I changed the motor in my Dyson Animal hoover and works fine but after 15 minutes it stops as if it was turned off, if i leave it for a period (2 hrs)it will start up again and work for a further 15 mins before shutting down.

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".
