If you decrease the cut depth by half, you’re going to be running the motor twice as long to get the job done.

Nathan’s suggestion that the internal thermal breaker is bad could well be the case. You can order the part for under $20 and replace it yourself. It might be worth a try, since shipping to a service center will cost at least that much.
