Hoover wind tunnel 2 power button

hello everyone I was vacuuming my super dusty desk today with the hose for 20 minutes and turn off my vacuum then noticed the power button was really hot then when I flip the switch on it flips back to off like there’s a spring on the power button. Is my vacuum overheated or is the button broken ? I cleaned all the filters and bins but still no luck. I also cleaned the hose as well to make sure there’s no dust clogged up in there.

Switch is defective. Contact Hoover or a small appliance repair shop for a replacement switch.

My power button arrived and I installed it and when I flipped the switch on the vacuum runs for 5 seconds and it shuts off on its own. Did I do something wrong ? I attached the wires the same way the old power button was.

What shuts off on its own, switch or vacuum motor? You need a multimeter to make some electrical measurements. Around here you can get one for free at Harbor Freight (sells for $6) with a coupon and a purchase.
