Check the hoses, the filters, and throughout the vacuum, and clean out any blockages or clogs. Vacuums will likely also have a recommended cooldown time to ensure that the vacuum won`t overheat. You will need to wait for that time before you turn the vacuum back on.
These are symptoms of bad or dirty bearings. You should remove the brush roll or rolls from the vacuum. Check to see that the bearings at the end of the brush roll allow it to spin freely. Make sure that there is no hair trapped in the bearings.

the most relevant questions and answers related to your specific issue
.If the motor kicks on there’s a short, which usually requires a cord replacement. If that’s the case, it’s a relatively simple fix for most dyson models.
.If not, you could have a short in your switch or somewhere else in the electrical system of the machine.
press the clean button – got a green light
iRobot runs for a couple of seconds and stops, then starts, then stops. After two or three times I now have a red light on for the Status.
All of the wheels seem to be clean. I used compressed air to clean the underside. But still have the start stop problem.
.Your machine needs a new motor Pam.
.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.

Problem: Vacuum motor won’t turn on. The power head operates, but nothing from the vacuum. Have checked all areas of airflow: hose, bag, motor filter and hepa filter. All are fine. Have checked and rechecked all electrical connections, all seem to be in working order. Vacuum hasn’t run for a week or so, so it’s not the thermal protector, unless it’s defective. Vacuum was running fine last week. Didn’t stop operating when using. Went to v
Part # KC86WBZR3000…Cost is $6.99. I would remove and inspect for burnt components, or broken wires…Then clean connections both male/female using an eraser, toothbrush and alcohol…Using a bright light and a magnifying glass inspect solder joints for “bridges” or cold joints. If you detect a problem during this procedure (to the exclusion of burnt components) fix, reassemble, and test. If problem still persist: Order a new part.
