The electronics would usually fail so it doesn't start at all. Starting then stopping usually means that the resistance to turn went up and it shut down to protect itself. Sometimes if the impeller moves but there's still buildup inside, the high speed causes excessive friction.

If you haven't thrown it out, you might want to try to give it another go. I had one do the same with me and I was about to throw it out, but my dad decided he could do a better job cleaning it (and he did).
