Question about Vacuums
I had same problem. Turned out to be the filter that sits above the waste cannister. Remove the waste cannister. There is a little orange lever that releases the filter. It was caked with dirt not allowing any air flow causing the motor to overheat.
This foam filter gets dirty pretty fast.

After cleaning the foam filter, it's also helpful to pull apart the cone shaped insert in the canister. Twist the top to remove the cone, remove three screws from inside the small cylinder, then remove the 4 screws around the base of the cone. Then you can wash all of the dirt out of the honeycomb-type cone-shaped piece. Make sure it's all dry before putting it back together or it'll turn to mud. Mine worked like new after cleaning the foam filter and the honeycomb cone.
