From your description, you problem sounds like it could be an electrial one, not very hard to diagnose, but some dis-assembly is required. you would have to remove the hood, motor cover, turbine just to get to the motor. I would check the carbon brushes for contact on the armature first. the other things to check would be the cord but the back lower half of the handle would need to be taken apart. I would highly recommend to bring it in for an estimate only, most should do one for a minimal fee or deposit.

Was vacuuming with no problem and the vaccum just shut off. . .what can I do?


Check that the electrical cord if fully inserted in the
wall outlet. See if the vac has a circuit breaker switch
on the electrical plug called a GCFI,or on the vac itself,which probably has tripped. Good luck.

Hoover Windtunnel shuts down after 15 minutes


Might be that its not exausting enough heat & stutting its self down..

Try cleaning all the filters & the hepa filter..
This will increase air flow & maybe fix the issue..

Hope this helps !!

After I run my vacuum for a couple of minutes it shuts off. If I unplug the vacuum and plug it into a different outlet most of the time it will start working again.


I would say check inside the plug and make sure the connections are tight. If the vacume runs fine on the other socket outlet then it will bw a faulty socket which cuts your hoover out. Can buy a new socket frount from diy stores for about 2-3 pounds. If the hoover also cuts out on the other sochet it will be a temperature cut out device on your hoover. If this is the case empty the bag and give it a good clean and get rid of any accumalation of dust/dirt

The on off swtich doesn't work on our hoover windtunnel vaccum cleaner. Can it be repaired?


Hi,
If its just the switch then by all means it can be repaired or replaced. If it needs replacement and the part is not available, you could replace it with a generic switch which may need some modification. Alternatively you can bypass the switch with the wiring and turn the machine on and off at the wall outlet.
Best wishes,

Our Hoover U5780-900 stopped working while using the attachment. We let it cool down for about 5 minutes and it fired back up. It appears to shut down when it overheats.

Hoover only two years old and it stopped working!
Posted by baby_nurse on May 02, 2008
My Hoover self propelled wind tunnel was working great until a couple of days ago when it started shutting on and off while vacuuming. I thought it was the outlet but when I plugged it into two different outlets it did the same thing. Then finally yesterday it just stopped working it won't even turn on when plugged in. I thought it was the switch but it is not. Is it the motor? Has the motor burned out? Do I need to buy a new one? Help!!

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.

I think you are right, if it is not the switch then it would be the motor. Does it smell bad like a burning smell? If so it is definitely the motor and then @ that point you may want to get an estimate for motor replacement, and keep in mind of what you spent on the vacuum versus what the cost of repair might be. My own rule of thumb is if it cost more than ½ of the price I paid for it then you have to decide – do I want to pay the repaired cost for the vacuum or do I want to purchase a new one. Just a suggestion... You may want to check with your local vac dealer. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Will not start again.


If the cord sparked, then it is bad and needs replaement. If it sparked at the plug end, then replace the plug.
