Make certain you have the correct bag installed, that the bag does not have a tear in it, and that the hose leading from the floor head, up to the bag, does not have a tear in it.

Also make sure the beater bar belt is not rubbing against anything, and that the beater bar can turn freely only against motor resistance.

The only reason vacuums cut-out during use is because they get too much air (missing or torn bag, bad or missing suction hose, rubbing belt or beater bar rotation restriction). There is a small chance the motor has a problem, but a very small chance.

SOURCE: vacuum will not shut off

Either the switch has a contact inside, or the wiring in the harness to motor are making contact.
This can be verified using a multimeter , preferably reading continuity (Ohms) on switch contacts, with power disconnected, that is safer than reading voltages.
This will tell if responsible is the switch or the wiring harness.

SOURCE: Hoove Cyclonic Bagless vacuum shuts off after only a few minutes

The motor has a protective overload cutout device to stop it from over heating - this can be caused by a blockage of some sort in the hose or brushroll compartment or blocked filters.
After checking the above and it still cuts out, take it back under gurantee

SOURCE: the motor is overheating and shutting off

Sounds like there is a clog somewhere or a filter needs to be cleaned if it has one. Or the bag may need emptied.

You have a control knob on top of the canister, try adjusting that up to the highest grit (large dots), if it continues to shut off, you will need to replace the control valve.

There is a thermal sensor in the motor which shuts power off if it gets too hot but usually it won't turn back on until it cools down. It seems you might have a defective switch

Vacumm just shut off


It could be that you sucked up a piece of paper or plastic which got stuck in the hose and the vacuum just shut off due to over burn protection.
Check the hose if it is stuck. You can drop a penny and see if it glides and comes from the other end

Most good vacuums these days come with a tiny reset switch. Just press it with a pointed needle or pen tip. It your vacuum shut off due to protection feature, it should come back to life.

Vacuum cleaners have electric motors in them that require proper airflow to pass over them to keep them cool. Many vacuum cleaners have a thermal (heat) sensitive shut off mechanism built in. This mechanism should prevent the burn out of the motor. If you run a vacuum too long with a clogged hose or clogged filters (especially bagless vacuums) or clogged bags, that is essentially choking the vacuum for air and not allowing it to breath properly. This will cause it to overheat and shut down. Most of the big box store purchased vacuums have very thin wires in the motor windings and can only do this a few times before the motor completely fails. If your vacuum has been shutting down, then cooling off and restarting after about 30 to 45 minutes, then shutting down after only a few minutes of use, your machine is probably clogged up or the filters are compacted.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Not knowing the brand name or model number of the vacuum, some vacuums have a thermal switch or thermal shut off switch to protect the motor and once the motor gets hot the vacuum will shut off, or the vacuum could very well be clogged and the air is not getting through to the motor to keep it cool. Please check your owner’s manual under the trouble shooting section or cal the factory / manufacturer to see if the can send you an owner’s manual (OM) or you can download the OM from the manufacturer’s website. Next time include the brand name and model #. ? So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
