Question about Lindhaus Activa 30-38 Bagged Upright Vacuum
This sounds like it might be an overheating problem.
Some vacuum motors are fitted with thermal cut out fuses or thermistors which cut off the flow of electricity to the motor when the temperature gets to high. It is possible that your motor is overheating and causing the thermal fuse to open. When the unit cools down after aan hour or so, the fuse resets / closes again and then it will restart again. It is also possible that the thermal fuse is faulty and is cutting out at too low of a temperature.
These can be replaced if necessary but can require significant disassembly in order to access the motor and fuse. If you are unable to complete this type of troubleshooting / repair work yourself, then you are likely looking at a $75 repair job. Depending on the purchase price of the unit, sometimes it can be more cost effective to simply buy a whole new unit since it would come with a warranty.

Part number A113 on the diagram (look right on the motor) and part list is the thermal protector. On some newer models the thermal protector fuse is apparently fitted on the cord which should make replacement somewhat easier / less expensive.
Otherwise, Dyson brand vacuums are of excellent quality and come with a full parts and labour warranty, they are highly recommendedfor reiability and customer service. Here is a link to the Dyson site if you are interested:

I'm not sure what's going on, but I would go to the manager and insist that it be replaced with a new one. This sounds like a heat issue, caused by some anomaly, but it could be other tricky things, and it's obvious that they don't know, and are just taking guesses. Either get an exchange or your money back.
