All scooters have a protection system built in to prevent burning up the motor, and the user, should the scooter overheat. It sounds like yours overheated. If the temp. outside was warm to hot, and your weight is near the weight limit for the scooter, and you are taxing the motors over a hill, or unstable terrain, then the scooter goes into "limp home mode", or just enough to get you a bit aways, and then it will turn off. After a few minutes to cool off, it will go again, but shut down fairly quickly because it takes a spell to let the whole transaxle-motor assembly to get cool.
Check your weight, and anything else you may be carrying with you on the scooter. Check the terrain, and incline you are going against. Throttle down for all these occassions. If you overloaded the system at some point, then you may have overheated the brushes. Remove them (2) with a standard screwdriver and see if the copper coil is still flexible and springy. If not, replace it/them.
The damage may already be done, so it may need a new motor/transaxle assembly. An expensive proposition I'm afraid.

It is best to let it charge at least over night, longer if it hasn't been used for a while. It is also good to give them a long workout (Don't completely flatten them though) at least occaisionally. If they get regular and thorough use they will last longer, but extra weight like shopping, or lots of steepish paths will flatten them a lot faster. They are only supposed to last a couple of years, but will go longer if you look after them.
One of the most important things is to find a supplier/repairman you can trust. These are, after all your legs or mode of transport you are talking about.
