 My guess is: Either a loose contact on the plug  or Intermittent electricial open  in the electric cord itself. To confirm. Try wiggling the cord and ends while running. If you find the place yo ucan either replace the cord or repair it.

Why the vacuum shut off after 3 minutes and the plug is hot


sounds like the motor maybe clogged and over heating. if you can take apart the vacuum and find the motor. if you have a shop vac use that to clean out the dust and debris. put it back together and try it again. if this doesn't work i would replace the vacuum or get it repaired. i would NOT continue to run the vacuum if the plug gets hot after 3 minutes.

Vacum shuts off


If you have BISSELL vacuum, some of our models have a brush reset. Here are the instructions to turn it back on:

If something becomes lodged in the foot and the

brush shuts off, turn the cleaner off and unplug

from the outlet. Remove the obstruction. The

brush will automatically reset when the cleaner
is plugged in and turned back on.

Additionally, you could have dirty filters that are activating a thermal protector switch that shuts the vacuum off if the motor becomes too hot. If this is the case unplug the vacuum, clean any filters, clogs, or obstructions and wait 30 minutes for the unit to cool. Then plug the unit in and it should work. I hope this helps.

It was working fine and them just stopped it is not that old and was not making noises HELP!!


Vacuum cleaners have electric motors in them that require proper airflow to pass over them to keep them cool. Many vacuum cleaners have a thermal (heat) sensitive shut off mechanism built in. This mechanism should prevent the burn out of the motor. If you run a vacuum too long with a clogged hose or clogged filters (especially bagless vacuums) or clogged bags, that is essentially choking the vacuum for air and not allowing it to breath properly. This will cause it to overheat and shut down. Most of the big box store purchased vacuums have very thin wires in the motor windings and can only do this a few times before the motor completely fails. If your vacuum has been shutting down, then cooling off and restarting after about 30 to 45 minutes, then shutting down after only a few minutes of use, your machine is probably clogged up or the filters are compacted.

Hi Cassidy. You are probably right about the motor overheating. The usual cause for overheating is a clog some where on the bottom of the machine. Check for anything that could be blocking the dirt fro going into the bag. Hope this helps Chris

I know nothing about your particular vacuum, but many vacuum cleaners these days have
safety cut out's, which causes the motor to do exactly what you describe. Sadly blockages, faulty switches, over stretched cables, carbon brushes etc could also give similar symptoms, so sounds like a job for the repairer on this occasion. Get a quote first if you can.

My Hoover runs for a few minutes and shuts off.


It's possible the thermal reset is defective. It shuts the motor off if it gets hot. Remove the bag door and take the bag off, remove both filters and then turn the vacuum on, just leave it sit there with the motor running. This eliminates the bag or filters causing any airflow resistance. If it still shuts off after a few minutes it's likely the thermal reset is bad. Some vacuums have an external thermal reset button which can be replaced if necessary but on your model it is built into the motor and you must replace the motor. If the motor runs fine put the bag and the filter under the bag back in - (make sure the filter is clean and not restricting airflow) put the bag cover on then turn it on again. If it overheats and shuts off then you may have a clog on there somewhere restricting the airflow. If so check the power nozzle area, the hose coming from the power nozzle, the extension hose and wands for clogs or restrictions.

My vacuums power shut off while vacuuming


Its a good chance that your vacuum motor has either shorted out or become burnt out, this can happen after a few years of use. My only real suggestion, being what i would do in your situation, either contact dyson and try and get another motor, alternatively, contact a 2nd hand motor place, maybe a white goods store, and they may have a vacuum motor to suit as Dyson spare parts can be expensive. I hope this offers some assistance.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Not knowing the brand name or model number of the vacuum, some vacuums have a thermal switch or thermal shut off switch to protect the motor and once the motor gets hot the vacuum will shut off, or the vacuum could very well be clogged and the air is not getting through to the motor to keep it cool. Please check your owner’s manual under the trouble shooting section or cal the factory / manufacturer to see if the can send you an owner’s manual (OM) or you can download the OM from the manufacturer’s website. Next time include the brand name and model #. ? So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
