Question about Hoover Vacuums

I need to switch on my thermal protector on my hoover

I need to get to the motor and none of the manuel's I've looked give much information. What I have been able to find out is that the protector is located on the left side of the vacuum.

FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Normally there are either screws, clips or levers that would remove the bottom plate or lid that does not work then the top cover will come off and that will expose the belt of the hoover from there u can continue further by opening the locks with proper screwdriver.and then the motor can be seen.

Where is the thermal protector sensor on hoover vac.

On most vacuum cleaner models it is built into the motor and cannot be changed without replacing the motor. In my experience the reset switch goes bad more often than the motor does which is why I recommend vacuum cleaners that have an external reset switch.

Power button is not working

Hi Mohammad! If your vacuum is not turning on this could mean your thermal protector has activated. The thermal protector will shut your vacuum off or prevent it from powering on when the motor reaches a certain temperature. Check the vacuum hoses for clogs and clean and replace all filters if needed. If the vacuum does not turn back on within 24 hours you could be having an issue with your switch. We recommend taking the vacuum in to a Hoover authorized service center for repair. Follow the link below to locate the nearest service center to you. Service Center Locator
Hope this helps!

Hoover bagless keep shutting off after about 5 minutes of cleaning and take about 30 minutes or more to work again. Is it overheating and why? how can I fix this?

Your hoover has a thermal protector that shuts power to the motor off for 30 mminutes if it trips. Tripping of the thermal protector it typically caused by an obstruction of some sort, there are several locations to check. First, remove the bagless filter and look for a rectangular plastic object centered under where the canister was. This "final fillter" is often overlooked and can be washed in your kitchen sink. Let dry completely before using. Other things to look at are on the big plastic filter inside the canister, make sure the holes arent clogged with dirt, this also can be washed in your sink. Of course check the lines from just behind the brush all the way to the filter for clogs. If all else fails, take it and your warranty if still good to an authorized service center to have it serviced... I've noticed on this model, if the thermal protector trips too many times, it seeems to be more prone to trip to the point that it doesn't matter if theres a clog or not anymore. This is how I found out about this problem, as I work for a hotel using these (and these are not designed to be commercial grade). They cost like $50 to service this $80 vaccume so, being that the warranty was void for using them commercially, and the cost of the servicing, I simply bypassed the thermal protector and make it a point to completely clean them 1-2 times a weeek till we can get a more commercial model.

After from ten to fifteen minutes of use it automatically shuts down but will sstart up again after fifteen minutes.

It sounds as if the motor has overheated at some point and damaged the thermal protector in the motor. Be sure all the filters are clean before operating the vacuum. If it continues to shut down, the thermal protector will need to be replaced. ( Part # 28382093 ) This is a very common problem with bagless vacuums, if the main filter is not cleaned after every vacuuming.

My Hoover U6458-900 shuts off after a few minutes of vacuuming. I let it set a few minutes and it will start up again.

It sounds as if the motor has overheated at some point, and damaged the thermal protector fuse in the motor compartment. Clean the filters thoroughly, change the bag, and try to operate it. If it still shuts down, the thermal protector will need replacement. ( Part # 47534032 )

Hoover Windtunnel shuts off

I found the following solution on this website. I have searched for hours and finally found this solution, it works! I HAD the same problem after cleaning the filter mentioned below, it is now working like it was new.

***by maverick_bea***
yes this machine has a thermal protector in it to shut off the machine if it gets to hot, this is normal. if there is no clogs in the hoses or in the machine then you will need to wash the filter at the top of the machine. you will have to remove the dirt cup and at the top you should see a half moon orange, well inside of this piece is the washable filter, clean and let it dry completly before putting back into machine. if this gets dirty and has not been cleaned, you can lose alot of suction. in some cases if this filter is not cleaned it can cause the machine to overheat so bad that it can damage the motor.
