The problem was a sticking switch that was not being reset. The vacuum on/off switch mechanism is comprised of two switches. One is the main switch that turns the vacuum on and off. The second is a shut off switch that gets tripped when the full bag sensor is engaged. This second switch is supposed to get reset when you push the on/off switch on the outside of the machine. The full bag shutoff switch was stiff and it, therefore, was taking a couple of presses of the on/off switch to move the shutoff switch back into the running position.

Either there is something wrong with your switch. Which it doesnt sound like it. Take it to your dealer or call another one it sounds like the control valve needs to be replaced. I am a dealer 1-866-966-9350.

SOURCE: Vacuum won't stay on
When you open the canister you eill see a little rubber hole that senses when your bag is full. This must be clogged. If you have another vac try to vacume all the dusr from this hole and any other opening inside the vacume that you can reach. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate this answer.
