There's only 2 reasons that heat switch will trip.
1. Not enough air
2. Bad motor or heat switch.

I would check your filters and suction on the tools. There should be LOTS of suction at the tools on that unit. If there's not follow the air back until you find the plug. It might just be a really dirty filter or carpet powder or something along that line plugging the filter.

If the suction is not a problem it might just be defective and in that case if it's not very old go to hoovers website and find a service center location and have it fixed. They shouldn't charge you for the repair if it's still under warranty. You'll need your receipt for it though, so hope you kept that!

Good Luck!

Shuts down after 10 min use


I would clean or replace filters on it check the hose to make sure it is not blocked . It sound like it is over heating and making the breaker kick off and after it cools down it resets this is caused by dirty filters or blocked hoses.

Hoover Steam Vac Spin Scrub


Remove the brush block, is the shaft on it or broken off. Replace the block if broken off. Turn unit over, with brush block removed, handle tilted back, is the square hole turning, if not then the turbine is bad, this is what turns the brushes.

Over heated hover
Posted by blade123 on May 29, 2008
Hi there, I’ve got a upright Hoover and it cuts out after about 5 mins I think it’s over heated but if i leave it for 5 mins it works again but cuts of again how can i fix it?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It is possible that you my have a heat sensor, but as far as what you described you need to change both belts, the brushroll belt and the power drive belt as well and @ the same time. The average belt change is every 4 to 6 months on the vacuum. Does it stop completely or is it just the belt problem. Or #2 is the vacuum giving off a burning smell other than the belts and if it does it could be the motor. Other wise , please call the factory or a local Hoover warranty station in your area. 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.

Hoover carpet cleaner


Take the brush block out, is the shaft that goes up into the turbine there, or is it broken off. If gone, then replace the brush block. If there, then probably the turbine isn't working, this is what drives the brushs. It may be just clogged up, you can remove the turbine, take it apart and clean it out real good and put it back together. If it works, then you are set, if not, then it will have to be replaced.

Hoover mach 5 only used 3 times


If the filters are ok, and there is no clog in the hose or dirt inlet down by the brushroll, then the motor protector is probably bad.

Belt on steam vac v2


The V2 doesn't use a belt, it uses a turbine to drive the brush block, If brushes are not turning, either the shaft on the brush block broke off, or the turbine is bad and will have to be replaced.
