Have you checked the screen filter below the bag? This sometimes gets clogged with fuzz and whatnot, resulting in the vacuum shutting off. To clean it simply remove the bag and use a pick or similar item.
A clogged hose will also result in the same problem. Try running without the hose. If the vacuum runs without the hose a blockage in the hose is a probability. However there could be a clog in the power nozzle above the brush, as well. Check the suction at the end of the hose. If very little there's a good possibility this is the problem. Double check by dropping coin in one end and allowing to drop through. If it doesn't there's a clog. It can usually be cleared by plugging the hose into the exhaust port and turning the machine on. Be sure the other end is inside a large plastic bag.
Visually check wands to ensure they're clear. If not, push clog out with a broom stick.

My first guess would be that the switch insidet the bag door is not pushed in (or missing).
The cardboard frame around the bag is supposed to push it in when the bag is properly positioned and the bag door is closed. The switch may be missing or loose.
The switch is there to make sure you don't run the vacuum without a bag.

What you might have done is burned out the cable that supplies the power to the actual working of the machine. This happened to be and I had to end up replacing the internal components which took a lot of time, and money. You are better off trying to get a new one and selling this one online for parts.
