The symptoms you describe are those of a machine that is overheating. Almost certainly there is a blockage somewhere, or one or more filters are clogged, thus impairing air flow. Clear the blockage and the problem should be solved. If this doesn't help, please post details of the model number of your machine and I'll try to be more precise. I hope this helps. I value your feedback so please remember to rate my response.

Vax stopped mid vacuuming,as though fuse in plug has blown.checked fuse,OK.no lights lit.vax not working.


Most vacuums have thermal protection on the motor that will shut it off if it gets too hot. If you can turn it off, wait 10-15 minutes, and it works when you turn it back on, that's what is going on. Now, the motor shouldn't normally get that hot, so your next challenge is finding out why. Check for any blockages in the air flow or cooling vents, and if the motor also powers something like a beater bar, make certain that it turns relatively freely.

No power what do I do when I stopped and tried ti start again no power . Emptied it and cleaned filter but still not working


All vacuums generate heat and some have automatic cut off switches when the vacuum does overheat. When this happens the manufacturer does not want you to just turn it back on, they want you to know there was a problem and to let it cool down. They often do this with a restart button. Having to press a restart button is supposed to make you think a bit more about the problem and, perhaps, let the motor cool down before restarting the vacuum. The button is often small and red.
