This has been going on for a while, but it wasn’t until today that I decided to try to figure out exactly what is wrong with my vacuum.
I can use the vacuum for 5-10 minutes. At that time, it will stop running and will not turn on. I’ve been taking this as “A SIGN!” and have grabbed the opportunity to stop vacuuming. In a half hour or so, the vacuum will turn on again.
Yesterday, the vacuum wouldn’t restart after a half hour unless I switched the plug to another outlet. So, plug vacuum into outlet A. 5-10 minutes. 30 minutes. Switch to outlet B. Vacuum. 5-10 minutes. 30 minutes. Switch to outlet C. Vacuum. A and B still don’t work for the vacuum but are fine for all other uses.
Er, any ideas what’s going on? Am I frying something? Is my vacuum possessed by an evil spirit? Should I make offerings of fringey rugs and a cat or two?
