This is one of those things that needs opening to discover the fault, its almost certain that the culprit is the small diaphragm pump inside.
Lucky for you one of these have already been opened on Instructables.
I'd venture to guess that the pump is heating up warping the seals a bit. So you have to turn it off, allow it to cool then you can go again.
A picture or source site so we can distinguish between the good, bad and your ugly device, Also someone may have experience with your device. We don't Read Minds @ this site or do you believe all seal a meal do this same thing !
ITMT it sounds like the machine over heats and cannot deliver full power.
After a quarter hour it cools down and can be used again.
