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.

Jusy shut off while using


Your sweeper may have overheated. I don't know what brand you have but I hope you weren't trying to vacuum pine needles from the Christmas tree. Pine needles are sticky and will clog up any vacuum sweeper. Check your sweeper to make sure the tubes (hose & pipes that carry dirt) are clean and clear. I used to service Oreck vacuum sweepers.

Beater bar motor quit, now the main motor quit. Replaced the on/off switch. still nothing


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
If the vacuum cleaner motor doesn't run the on - off switch might be turned off or defective. Test the switch with an Ohm meter or continuity checker.
If the vacuum cleaner motor does not run the motor itself might be burned out. Check the power switch first to be sure the motor can get power. Then, be sure the motor shaft can turn freely, that nothing is obstructing it. If the motor can turn freely and is getting power but still won't run it will need to be replaced.

Using my unit (owned about 6 years - great service so far) it suddenly quit ... no wind down or 'prelude' like whine - growl - etc. -- it just quit running ... suggestions? clear filters?...


I agree with you having great service because mine only lasted two years. It sounds like the motor just worn out. If you don't smell any burnt electrical then replace the bushing for the motor. Good Luck

Vacuum won't turn on!!


Some of these have a relay or circuit board down by the main motor that may have gone bad. Could have a problem with the circuit board in the hose handle, Could have a problem with the motor. Will jusy have to have opened up and checked. Go to Sears.com, click on parts, put in your complete model number, a parts list and picture will come up, maybe that will help you.
