Does the power head motor stop, or does the brush roll stop. If it is the brush roll stopping, replace the belt and/or the brush roll. If it is the motor, you may need to clean out around the motor, it may not be getting enough air to cool causing it to overheat and stopping. That the brush roll plate off, take out the screw, and the top will come off, then you can check to see if cleaning is the answer, if not, the motor may be bad.

I think I know what the problem is with your machine. It's a rather lengthy repair, and I'll be happy to photograph it for you (like I do on most of my Fixya answers), but I'd like to know before doing all of that if you still need help, or if you've already fixed it.
