Why does my vac keep shutting down

switch the vaccum on & try wiggling the cord at the plug & see if it stops when you tighten the cord and wriggle it at the plug. This will indicate faulty lead if it shuts dwn when you do this . I suspect problem could be in your pwr lead needs replacing as lead faulty.
to fix replace lead.

Kirbyg4 shutting off while in use

First thing to check is cord to make sure no bad spots anywhere. If the bag emptor is not installed properly there is a switch that will not allow vacuum to run. There is another switch that is depressed when the power nozzle, hose or carpet cleaner is installed on the front of your Kirby. If the switch is not being depressed properly it can keep the vacuum from running.

No you do not need the filter to pick up glass. If you are vacuuming up dust/dirt then use the filter.

Run cut off -run cut off every ten minutes

The TOC(thermal overload cutout) on the motor is getting too hot - thats why it keeps shutting off and starting again once its cooled, so make sure your filters are clean and they are no blockages in the hose or the brushbar compartment or any where else
Which dyson is it?

Power cut out during cleaning

1 could have hit the thermal shut off. if it gets to hot they shut off, or it could be the cord some times they just go bad or it could be something else. Good Luck!

Ran over cord and the vacuum shut down, won't

sounds like it might have broken a wire in the cord and may have to replace the cord unless you can find the broken wire and splice it back together

Dyson dc15 just shut off.

Most likely your machine has a blockage, has overheated, and the thermal cutout has operated. This will reset itself when the machine cools, which can take an hour or more. Unfortunately Dysons tend to run hot anyway, so it doesn't take too much restriction of the airflow to cause this problem. Check for obstructions (including filter that may need washing) before anything else. Good luck!

Vacuums shuts off during use

 My guess is: Either a loose contact on the plug  or Intermittent electricial open  in the electric cord itself. To confirm. Try wiggling the cord and ends while running. If you find the place yo ucan either replace the cord or repair it.

No suction for use of crevice tools, running hot, then shut off

Obviously no suction in hose would indicate a blockage, over heating is a breaker that shuts off the machine when it over heats. There is no way to clean hose the on this model because the hose does not detach at either end, therefore I had to employ the use of the good old wire hangar. Job complete up and running, with good suction. It is amazing what a prayer to God can do.
