Question about Vacuums

Open Question

Honest Star M-288 (robovac) stops running.

The vaccuum stops running after 30 or so seconds. I have tried cleaning it out, though I lost my manual for how to take it apart. Tried to get one thru the manufacturer, but they are in China and not very helpful. Anyone know where to find a PDF manual or any idea why it stops working after a few seconds even after I clean it?

SOURCE: Roomba shuts down after a few minutes

The brushes are clean on the outside, but probably not inside of the little yellow contact on the end. Also the junk that collects on the brushes finds its way into the gear box. Mine kept shutting down w/ the "Please remove and clean Roomba's brushes" message. I finally gave up and took it apart. There was a surprising amount of junk in the gear box. After I got it apart, I cleaned it out and I even used a straight pin and a pair of tweezers to get all of the gunk out. Now it runs like new. I'm no mechanic, but I used to help my daddy fix things around the house. I posted my solution to the problem and it has worked for a couple of other people too.

SOURCE: Roomba cuts off after a minute or so.

If you have a 400 series Roomba, try removing the battery, then holding down the power button for ten seconds, then recharging the unit before you run it again.

If you have a 500 series Roomba, don't take out the battery-- just press and hold the "spot" and "dock" buttons for about fifteen seconds. The Roomba will play a tune, and you can then charge it and try running it again later.

common possible defective is that motor is not functioning,several factors can be check if you have a knowledge on electrical and motor
circuit you can easily diagnose your problem on your vacuum.
check the switch by your multi tester,if there is a continuinity resistance using multi tester.if no continuity replaced switch
check the carbon brush of the motor if worn out, replace two pcs. of carbon mounted inside the motor casing
you can check also the continuity of electrical cord and plug.replace if if plug and electrical cord is defective.
finally the motor has winding coil,at both end of coil of motor check the continuity,there are two coils of the motor.if burn out replace motor w/ two pcs. of carbon brush.

SOURCE: Dry/Wet vac is blowing instead of vaccuum

Check to see if the plastic ball is stuck . There should be a ball under the motor , make sure it moves freely. Make sure your vacum lines are not plugged . Best of luck Ed.

My Dyson DC35 stalls. I've thoughly clean it, so it's not a clog problem


1st make sure battery is fully charged.
Next, wash the filter, just follow the instructions in the manual.
If the filter is clogged the motor will try to run but then cut out to protect the motor from damage.

Hoover Wind Tunnel bagless- issue with turning on


Have you tried to plug the vaccuum in another outlet that is on another breaker? It could be the vaccuum tripped the breaker. Turn the breaker back on. The manual mentions the thermal protector could have been activated. If this happened it resets and your vac should run after 30 minutes. I have a Widepath Tempo and it has tripped the surge protector. If this is the problem try turning some things off that are also on that breaker/outlet, or unplug them when you use the vac.

Accessory hose not sucking


Try taking the hose off, and making sure it is not stopped up, either in the hose, or where it attaches. Straighten a wire coat hanger and run down the hose to check for obstructions.

Hope this helps!!!
