Question about Dirt Devil Vacuums
You probably have a clog that is overheating your motor and tripping the thermal cutout. Check all air hoses and inlets for clogs. If all of your air pathways are clear, you most likely have a bad motor bearing, also indicated by a high-pitched squealing sound. If that's the case, it would require a motor replacement; which is not usually economically feasible.

SOURCE: dyson vacuum cuts off
hi this sound like a familiar problem of the motor o/heating due to lack of ventilation ? check the filters ok? remove the cover concealing the roller brush/beater and check for clogging at the underneath and housing clear it out properly easier to remove/lift out roller ? also clear out the clear bucket dust collector and most important the cone that fits into this canister has a cylindrical honeycombed/small holes(looks like hundreds? ) use a small pointed impliment to poke out all!!these holes as these are relative to vacuum within cylinder so if not clear ? motor no vent and result is no/poor vac and o/heat then thermo switch kicks in and shuts down till motor cools hope this helps best wishes from uk
