It's overheating. Empty the cup and replace the filters. There's a breaker that opens up and turns it off when it gets too hot. When it cools down it closes back up and it will run again. It'll argue with you til the end of time or until you fix the problem.

Good Luck

I have this exact problem and have taken it completely apart multiple times and cleaned it completely. It is the automatic reset switch and if this starts happening to your vacuum it won't stop. Time to trade it out. Mine was only 6 months old and I could only vacuum for 5 min at a time. These were just a bad series of dirt devel vacuums and it's unfortunate because it works extremely well when it does work. It's just a factory mess up with the motor overheating. :( loved my dirt devel. They need to recall them and give us new ones!! #dirtdevil

SOURCE: Dirt Devil Swivel Glide Platinum vacuum suction problem

Is the suction tubing in the head assembly clogged, is the belt broke? If the if the belt looks good the brush may be turned off and you may need to turn the brush switch on.

My dirt devil breeze turbo shut off while I was vacuuming. I've checked 3 outlets and nothing happened


It may have overheated from a restriction or clog. If so it will come back on after it cools down.

Do my Dirt Devil have a restart button it just stop running


Hi! No the vacuum doesn't have a restart button, but it does have a thermal protector that will shut the vacuum down when it is overheated. If your dirt cup was too full this will activate the thermal protector sensor. Clogs and dirty filters can cause this as well. We recommend emptying the dirt cup, tapping out the filter and checking the hose for clogs. The vacuum will come back on usually within 45 minutes to an hour. Hope this helps.

Where is the reset button on the dirt devil featherlite


Hello! There is no reset button on the vacuum. It is equipped with a thermal protector sensor that will automatically shut the vacuum down when it is overheated. A vacuum usually overheats if there is a clog or if the filter needs to be cleaned or replaced.

To check for a clog twist the lower hose off where it connects to the brushes. Use a wooden spoon or something similar to break up and remove any clogs in the lower hose.

Remove the filter from the dirt cup. Tap the filter firmly against the trash can until debris stops falling. If the filter is really dirty it may need to be replaced. I have included a link that you may follow to purchase a replacement filter if needed. Your vacuum will turn back on after it cools down, this can take up to an hour. Hope this was helpful!

Why does the power shut off on a dirt devil vision vacuum?


It is probably the thermal sensor which shuts the vacuum off it gets hot. It will come back on when it cools down. Replace all the filters as they are probably. Restricting the airflow

Why dirt devil breeze no power?


Hello! The Breeze is equipped with a thermal protector that will cause the vacuum to automatically shut off when it is overheated. This is most likely caused by a clog or a filter that needs to be cleaned or replaced. When the thermal protector is activated the vacuum will need to cool down before it will power back on. This can take up to an hour. Try these quick steps below to prevent the vacuum from shutting off again.

1. Twist off the end to the lower hose that connects to the brushes.
2. Use a wooden spoon to gently looses and remove any blockages in the lower hose.
3. Remove the pleated filter from the dirt cup. Tap the filter firmly against a trash can until the dirt stops falling. The filter should be replaced every 6 months.

I have included a link where you may go to purchase the F1 filter for your vacuum. If you still have questions please feel free to reach out to us here on Fixya, Facebook.com/dirtdevil, or Twitter @DirtDevil. Thanks! F1 HEPA Filter

I have plugged in my dirt devil and it wont turn on. other things are plugged into the same plug in and they are working. is there a reset button on the vacuum?


Hello! The Easy Lite does not have a reset button. It does have a thermal protector that will automatically shut the vacuum down if it is overheated. This is usually caused by either a clog or a dirty filter or a combination of the two. Try these trouble shooting steps below.

1. Remove the hose completely from the vacuum from both ends.

2. Use a broom stick or something similar to gently loosen and remove any clogs from the hose.

3. Remove the dirt cup. Remove the red air director by turning 1/4 turn counter clockwise. Remove any hair or debris from the air director.

4. Remove the filter from vacuum base. Hold filter under running water to rinse. Allow 24 hours to air dry.

When the thermal protector is activated the vacuum must cool down before it will power back on. This can take up to an hour. Hope this helps! If you still have questions feel free to reach out to us here on Fixya, Facebook.com/dirtdevil or Twitter @DirtDevil.
