Have you checked that the air vents at the back aren't blocked with fluff?

hi yeah ive down that but its quite hard to clean i used showerhead to try and flush out as much as i could anyone else have advise for cleanng this?

p.s thanks for advice

The hoover attachment usually works on mine
sounds as though it is overheating and is automatically switching off for safety there is probably a blockage somewhere.

Is there a cooling fan in it ?
Is it working?
