Thermal overloadLeave machine to cool for 15 minutes and switch on. If the motor still doesn't run, it will need replacing.

Should I be concerned that the bag is drawn up into the extractor?

Why did the bag burst when the machine was turned on?

Why is there excessive motor noise coming from my machine?

Don't worry, this is quite normal as the motors exhaust warm air whilst in use.
