Mine takes longer to shut down, but I just started having this same problem. I wish I knew what's causing it so I could fix it. I think maybe we had a power surge at some point when I was using it last week. :(

    Ours just started doing the same thing and the vacuum is less than 6 months old. We love this vacuum but not if they only last 6 months and do this. Apparently this could be a problem...

Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

Your Shark vacuum is equipped with a motor protective thermostat. If for some reason your vacuum overheats, the thermostat will automatically turn the unit off. Should this occur, you would need to restart the motor thermostat. Turn off your unit and unplug the vacuum from the power. Clean the filters and dust cup filters. Check for blockages in hose, accessories and inlet openings. Then allow the unit to cool for a minimum of 45 minutes before plugging it back and turning it on.

My shark infinity vacuum has no power to it. It just quit mid vacuuming, almost like the wires inside got got pulled out. Is there a problem with loose wiring or motors burning out suddenly?


Sounds like it needs cleaning.
Remove all filters, clean or replace.
Clean motor.
Clean brush rollers.
Clean everything.
There is an inline fuse which shuts off power if too much dust, hair, etc blocks incoming air.
It resets after awhile, when van cools down.

It was working fine and them just stopped it is not that old and was not making noises HELP!!


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.

Shark euro-pro x upright vacuum that shuts down every 15 minutes


These are prone to overheating. The manufacturer put a foam 'filter' wrap around the electric motor. This filter wrap insulates the motor, trapping heat inside, which causes overheating. The motor is very similar in form and function to the one in the Hoover Windtunnel, but the Windtunnel has no filter wrap. It doesn't overheat, and functions fine without it. There is a filter on the intake anyway. It's a redundant filter, and I have removed mine. It works fine now.

If you take the filter out yourself, you will need a special screwdriver for one of the motor cover screws. I guess they don't want the consumers opening it up.

I suggest taking it to a vacuum repair shop and explaining to them the problem, and asking them to remove the filter wrap from the motor.

No suction - Infinity Shark Vacuum NV31C


You might try sucking the sose out with another vacum from the wrong way. You might be able to remove the hose and push a broom handle or stiff wire through. If you have compressed air available, you could try that, outside.

Im sure you have a clog and if you remove it, you will be back in business.

Hoover wind tunnel


Did you check down by the brush roll for a clog in the dirt inlet. And is the brush roll turning freely, if it is being lugged down, it can cause the motor to overheat and the thermo protector will caught it off, until the motor cools down. But if both are ok, then maybe the motor protector needs to replaced, it is prematurely tripping.
