you have knocked the cord wires off from the switch in the handle. Can easily be put back on by taken apart the handle. Make sure vacuum is unplugged when working on it.

It can be something stuck in roller or fan housing and it is turning off to protect the motor.

Use the tool that came with it to clean the nozzle where steam comes out. End nozzle also comes off so you can clean the larger hole with the other scrublike side of the tool.
Also, listen for steam assembly working, a low rumble like sound. If you do not hear it, it is broken and needs to be replaced.

No there is no reset switch. If you have no power, make sure wires are connected to switch inside handle.

On some carpets you may need a vacuum that can adjust the height for thicker or longer carpets. If it worked ok on your carpets before it may need a new belt or brush roll.
