Question about As Seen On TV Swivel Sweeper Vacuum
My swivel sweeper will run okay for 30 seconds at a time. when i shut it off for one minute, it will run for about 30 seconds. it will do this all day long. i have taken the advice from the answers here and cleaned it good. what could be the problem?
I had the same problem with Mom's brand new unit, right out of the box. I suspected the overload protector was malfunctioning and causing the short run time. I found the overload protector, inside the switch housing. It looks much like a little square capacitor, connected to the on-off switch. Sure enough, bypassing the overload protector solved the problem of short run-time. Of course, that voids the warranty and now Mom has to listen carefully for signs of slow-down from string-jams and clear these promptly -- but she understands that, fine.

I turned mine over, and took out all the little tiny screws. There are 10 of them. Then 1 by 1 I took each gear out and cleaned the cat hair from around it, then put it back together. Mine works perfect now.
Be careful, I suggest disassembling one corner at a time and putting it back together as you go.

The only answer is that it is overheating the motor and there is a protective shutoff sensor that prevents it from burning up the motor. The air intake is blocked still. You said that you cleaned it really good but there is still a blockage somewhere. Find that blockage and it will be repaired. If not it WILL eventually burn the motor bushings.
