Question about Eureka Vacuums
The most common thing would be a bad cord. It could also be a switch, the heat sensor or fuse(depending if you have one on that particular model). All of these can be tested with a continuity tester.
It could also be the motor, but usually the motor tends to smoke, stink, and spark before it shuts off completely. Do do a quick check to see if it is the motor you can manually turn the brushroller(if the belt is still good) and that will rotate the motor a around and sometimes that will make it kick back on if it is the motor. Now that probably won't fix it. It might sound terrible, but you'll know what the problem was.
Some vacuums have a reset switch on the machine that could have been tripped. They are usually on the back of the machine towards the bottom. Not all vacuums have these, but it's something to look for.
If it overheated, you just need to let it cool off and try it again.
I hope one of these suggestions helps. Good Luck
