Pull the head cover off to check the belt, if the belt is ok then it might be the power connection between the handle and the power head shaft. If the red light is on the power head, then its not the connection
because its getting power. Now some heads have a reset button on them,you could check this also.
With the cover off the power head, remove the belt, now turn it on, and be careful, but try to make the motor shaft spin,with one finger, because if it does start to spin you do not want to hurt your finger.
If the motor starts to spin,put the belt back on, if it does not spin again, the motor is too weak.
If it does not spin at all, the motor is bad.Hope this helps you,and you get it working.

Hi there, You don't actually specify how long it takes to turn off but this is normally due to a blockage in the hose or due to excessively dirty filters. Given that you have said the suction is low i would be inclined to think you have a blockage in your hose. Remove the hose and test suction of the machine again. If you have a notable improvement it is telling you something is stuck in the hose which you will need to remove.

Is the red light on when the motor of the power head cuts off??
Pages 6, 11, 12 address issues related to red light/indicator:
Also, I believe you can purchase new power brushes/heads.
