It is overheating clean all suction ports well, as well as the brush. clean or replace all filters, especially the hepa. Hopefully the damage is not irreversible, if so the motor is most likely done for.

There is a thermal sensor in the motor which shuts power off if it gets too hot but usually it won't turn back on until it cools down. It seems you might have a defective switch

No Suction and shuts itself off after 5 Min


This could be a few things. You could have a bad motor in the system, or there could simply be a clog. I recommend bringing it to a local vacuum repair shop.

My hoover Windtunnle model U5781-900.turns off while in use. After sitting for about 30 min it will work again for about 10 min and then shut off agian.


This is a result of the motor overheating. Try cleaning the filter above the dirt cup. Remove the dirt cup and right above should be a grey plastic cover. Slide the lock to get to the filter. Once you clean the filter, allow it dry and place everything back the way it was. This should allow the vacuum to work much longer.

Is there any known do-it-yourself fix for the nutone vx-550 overheating problem?


there is a way to do it, yes. However, are you sure that the PC board inside is not what is causing the problem?? I mean, are the lights on and function normally when you turn the switch on or off??

If so you can proceed to bypass the two thermal cut offs located on the field coil on both sides of your motor inside. Yes, it can be done without taking the motor apart.
Also, move the other thermal next to the motor and attach it to the housing near the back of the machine. DO NOT remove it unless you absolutely need to. IE test the unit and let it run for approx 20-25 mins. if it does not shut off there is no problem with the last thermal cut off. If it shuts down within 5 mins, take it out too. It could be faulty now.

Good luck,
Mark

Dyson runs about 5 min then shuts off


REMOVE AND CLEAN FILTERS AND YOU MAY FIND IT WILL WORK OK IF STILL CUTS OUT YOU MAY HAVE A FAULTY THERMAL CUT OUT BLOCK INSIDE THE MOTOR HOUSING
THIS HAPENS WHEN DYSON IS USED WITH CLOGGED FILTERS AND HEAT DAMAGE TO THERMAL BLOCK

My vacuum is constantly shutting itself off. When


It sounds like you have a blockage somewhere and the air is not passing over the motor to keep it cool. There is usually a thermostat mounted either on or near the motor. The blockage can be anywhere from the elbow ( the swivel part of your carpet sweeper if you have a canister vac) up thru the hose.If you have a canister vac, use a broom handle to push through the hose to clear the blockage. DO NOT ! use a coat hanger or anything that will cut or tare the hose. There are electrical wires in it that have 120 volts and causes quite a shock !
.
If you have an upright vac, start with the duct hose that comes from the part with the brush up to the hose and on to the main canister of the vac
If this does not work, take your vac to a reputable vac shop for repair. Hope this helps,
Joe

Nothing inn the canister after using,suctione working,bottom roller working,no air leaks from hoses.Also when running awhile it shuts off by itself,have to wait awhile to use again


I'm not sure what vacuum you have, but that sounds like a blockage to me. Thermal shut off kicks in, shutting the motor down, to prevent damage from overheating. After waiting like 1 hour it probably comes back on. Make sure hose, filters, bag (if any) is clean. All "airways" of vacuums need to be clear of any blockages, since airflow is what makes vacuums work.

Vacuum turns itself off or won't turn on


Sounds like a bad on/off switch or a loose connection somewhere in the vacuum. If you can remove the switch, you can see if any connections are loose. The switch itself can be checked if taken out of the circuit and tested with a meter or a continuity light.

Otherwise, you might want to consider a repair shop.
