SOURCE: SEBO vacuum cleaner
Take the hose off and see if the light is still on or is it off. If it is off, then there is a clog in the hose. While the hose is off, drop something thru it and see if it comes out the other end. Press the retaining clip and the hose will disconnect. Separate the power head from the handle unit to make sure there is no clog by the brush roll. If it is still on then probably the computer controller, part # 5740ER has a problem. It is located in the power head.

SOURCE: clogged hose...
Low suction, poor pickup, or no suction may be due to a clog in the vacuum cleaner. If you notice a change in the sound of the motor or a reduction in the spinning action in the Dirt Container, check for clogs. Unplug cleaner from electrical outlet. Empty Dirt Container. Check Upper Tank and Louvers for build up or clogs. Check to make sure Louvers are installed correctly. To unlock the Louvers, grasp the rim and turn toward the left. Pull straight down to remove. If the Louvers are missing or not locked into place, check and clear the tube in the center of the Dirt Container. Remove the Twist ‘n Snap Hose from the vacuum by turning to the left. Check the Suction Inlet, Hose and Hose Wand for clogs. Remove any clogs from the hose using a long, narrow object. Check the Foot Hose for clogs. If needed, remove the screw attaching the Hose Wand Base to the vacuum. Straighten the Foot Hose and unclog with a long, narrow object. If the clog persists, then check the Rotating Floor Brush the Air Passageway for obstructions.

SOURCE: Clog and possible overheated
It sounds like your vacuum overheated due to the clog. This is a protection feature most vacuum cleaners have to prevent the vacuums motor from burning out due to a lack of air flow. The safety switch will activate and shut the machine off for a short period of time until the motor has cooled.
You should remove the clog from the vacuum, and make sure that your filters are clean. This model has a hidden filter directly underneath of the bagless dirt cup in a black tray that says "PULL". Pull this tray out, inspect the filter, and if dirty rinse under water until clean. Make sure that the filter is completely dry before reinstalling and using the vacuum cleaner again.
After inspecting all of the filters and removing the clog, let the vacuum cool down (usually just a few hours) and try to turn it on again. When you turn it on, remove the attachment hose and make sure that you have suction from the hose. When putting the attachment hose back down into the floor section of the vacuum, listen to see if you hear a change in the noise the motor makes. If you hear a higher pitched squeeling noise, this indicates that there may be a clog in the lower section of the vacuum as well. If the noise is the same then you should be ok.
If the vacuum continues to shut itself off, then either the clog has not been completely removed, or the safety thermal switch inside may now be faulty, and only at this point should you take your machine into a repair store.
I hope that this helped you!
