Question about Vacuums
I have seen this before--there is a thermal (heat) breaker in most expensive units---
Look carefully at the air filter to see it is not blocked, one here we looked and it seemed ok but it was washable and when put under the tap in the sink the water ran Black for several minutes, follow instructions on the filter or the manual in this case and wash it if it is washable (paper ones have to be replaced) and let it dry completely.
The way I knew it was blocked was with compressed air not moving free thru it .
It must be completely dry before you try to use---no airflow here will over heat the motor and trigger the internal breaker which monitors current and temperatures.
