Your heater in the cleaner is either plugged or has quit working, make sure you are getting a good ground for the cleaner. you may want to check the ground pin on the cord and make sure it is not loose or broken.

I need a replacement battery for my Shark Stick sweeper model V1911 N. Can't find it on their web site. I guess it is old. Murnieruth

These are prone to overheating. The manufacturer put a foam 'filter' wrap around the electric motor. This filter wrap insulates the motor, trapping heat inside, which causes overheating. The motor is very similar in form and function to the one in the Hoover Windtunnel, but the Windtunnel has no filter wrap. It doesn't overheat, and functions fine without it. There is a filter on the intake anyway. It's a redundant filter, and I have removed mine. It works fine now.
If you take the filter out yourself, you will need a special screwdriver for one of the motor cover screws. I guess they don't want the consumers opening it up.
I suggest taking it to a vacuum repair shop and explaining to them the problem, and asking them to remove the filter wrap from the motor.

This vacum cleaner is equipped for auto shut off when it gets hot , It gets hot when it gets clogged either the little sponge filter is to dirty or the the round white filter in the dust collecting container.
But if they are both clean then it is clogged in the line probably with lot of carpet fiber, in that case you ned to take the dust container out and possibly the assembly from bottom like when you change the belt, then take of the Handle where the flex hose is attached, then you gonna need a wire hanger bend a long shape close to the shape of the hose line from handle to where it curved around in the bottom opening where it collects the dust behind the spin brush the just stick the hanger from the handle side cause the clog is probably in the lower side then just push the clogs out . Be care full not to puncture the flex hose with hanger. Its probably a good idea to bent the tip of the hanger so that it wont poke hole in the flex hose.
That's what happened with mine I spend hours and hours and days to figure it out. I could have just through it away, but it just kind a pissed me off and the War was on as stubborn as i am, but finally I won and I got the satisfaction of the sweet victory.
Waste lot of time though but it just one of those things. It never messed with me again.
But that is what's wrong with it. Good luck it a good vacum though very power full.

Tips for a great answer:
There seems to be many people that are looking for parts and accessories for their Shark products. Shark does have a website where they sell parts and accessories for their products.
Whether you are looking for parts for you Steam product, Upright vacuum, Garment care product, or your hand or cordless vacuum, you can find any of the available parts here.
Then at the top right under the search box, hover over the parts and accessories tab.
A drop down menu will appear and you can choose which product you want to see the parts for.
Click on that product and you will then see separate boxes for parts and accessories for all of the products in that category.
Click on the product you have and then you will see a list of parts or a list of accessories available for that product.
There are many parts available for their products, but I would not say that they have available every part that could possibly break.
There no parts that pertain to the heating function, so if your product stops making steam for instance, there are no parts that can help you fix that.
Broken handles are fixable and are there. Replacement heads and replacement head coverings are there as would be expected.
If you are in need of parts to fix a product that is not heating, I would suggest looking for used products on Ebay or something like that. Also advertising for a used product may also get you the parts you need...unless of course they are selling it because of the same problem that you had...make sure to check that out first.
