Question about Dirt Devil Vacuums
Could be clogged. Check hose check sole plate if its an upright, check handle of hose if its a canister type or check the filter inside the bag/bin area i.e the white or black filter either behind the paper bag or cyclone- if its clogged with dirt then the vacuum may have functioned its thermal cut out - which can take up to 45 minutes until the motor cools down and resets itself.

If something becomes lodged in the foot and the
brush shuts off, turn the cleaner off and unplug
from the outlet. Remove the obstruction. The
brush will automatically reset when the cleaner
is plugged in and turned back on.
Additionally, you could have dirty filters that are activating a thermal protector switch that shuts the vacuum off if the motor becomes too hot. If this is the case unplug the vacuum, clean any filters, clogs, or obstructions and wait 30 minutes for the unit to cool. Then plug the unit in and it should work. I hope this helps.
