I bet you have something stuck in there. Mine is not the same, but very similar design and it does what yours is doing when it gets a clog. The first time it happened was right at first use, when somehow I pushed a piece of masking tape or whatever it was protecting the cutter during shipping down there and didn’t realize it. Those ear muffs with music are a bad idea….cant hear your DC, or not.

The second time was after I ran it with the DC hose connected, but the DC not turned on. Both times it was a real bear to clean out. Had to reach up the exhaust port and pull all the crap out, then now air in where ever I could at the top. Machine unplugged of course.
