It could be a clogged bit of dust. Check the main hose, remove it by unlocking at the top and check the whole assembly including the pull out wand part. Then check the underside. Either inspect using the trapdoor or remove the beater bar and see if there is any clogged dirt behind that. Sometimes dust can get clogged around the neck of the floor head. If you unlock the body of the X from the floor head (button release is just below the main bin) check the main dust channel before it meets the wand. Sometimes it can be clogged with dust there.
Usually if the filters are black they can be cleaned with the exception of the foam motor filter on top of the hood. Cost replacements are usually easy to find online or on EBay.

I have a Windsor Sensor s12 and power shuts off after 5 min. of vacuuming. I'm wondering if it's overheating of if there is some other sensor that causes it to shut off.


Your Sensor most likely has an internal heat sensor that is shutting off the motor. Some vacuums install an external heat sensor with a reset button that you must push to re-start the vacuum. If your model does not have an external reset button it is most likely a sensor inside the motor. If it is defective the motor must be replaced to solve the problem. But first make sure the overheating is not being caused by a blockage somewhere or the bag is too full. Air must pass completely through a vacuum starting at the floor where it picks up the dirt through all the canisters, filters, bags, etc. and then is exhausted from the vacuum. Any restrictions or blockage can cause the motor to over heat.

Hoover vacuum cleaner indicators stuck


the sensor is located in the tube that the bag mounts to, if you take the bag off of the unit and have an air compressor handy you can blow out the port hole this should dislodge the particulates that are causing the false reading, there is defintely a clog in the system. let me know if this helps thanks Don the Vacuum Doctor Alb, N.M.

Sebo x1.1 fitted with new bag and filter but red bag check light still comes on and then machine shuts off. Any ideas how to remedy?


Without doubt this indicates that there's a blockage somewhere. The two easiest places to look are: 1. on the underside of the machine there's an inspection flap - check in there; 2. remove the flexible hose completely from the machine at both ends - check in the hose itself, and where it enters the machine near the handle .  The only other place to look is where the base connects to the bag compartment - to check there, you need to separate those two parts by pressing the button at bottom front of bag compartment and pulling the base away (this can be difficult - four hands would be useful - but once you're pressing that button, nothing else other than friction is holding the parts together). Once the parts are separated, check every orifice you can see (the parts just push back together again).
I think that covers it.  Good luck, and please remember to rate this response.

Our vacuum (a miele S718) has cut out.


Probably WAY too late to help you now, but may be of assistance to others (I repair appliances): Several times, I've had Miele Vacs which show the red light, but the motor never powers up. If the vac was working perfectly before, 98% it will be a bad solder joint on the Motor pcb. Although it varies per vac: Remove the bag & 4 screws around.
Unclip & remove lid (flex off pivots), then remove centre screw. Lift off control panel. Remove all other screws under the control panel area.
Lift out motor & unscrew motor pcb. Turn over & inspect for any black joints - repair as ness. Reassemble in reverse order - note: difficult to locate top cover back on if lid wasn't removed, as lid power connection can interfere. Hope this helps...

Red light won't turn off


You probably have a clog in either the hose, or the dirt inlet by the brush roll. That red light is telling you that either the bag is full or a clog is not allowing suction.
