1 Answer

Windtunnel shuts off after a few minutes of use.

Turn off and reatart after about 10-15 minutes. Then it will run for about another 10 minutes and shuts off again. I was going to replace the sensor but don't know where it is or how to replace it. Can you help?

    It sounds like you have an excessive vacuum leak. Have you confirmed that the unit is properly assembled (including all filters) and is not leaking?

Mach 4.7 runs for 2.5 minutes and shuts off


Did you use it to vacuum up fine materials like powder? If you cleaned the filters, but they are original to the machine, replace them. Try changing the bag to a fresh one as well. Beyond that, check how freely the brush turns. If it doesn't turn freely that can but excess load on the motor, if its covered in threads, remove those.

Hoover U5780-900 Windtunnel a month 1/2 old just started stopping when it is running and wont turn back on for a few hours why?


The motor has a thermal protection sensor on it. So your motor may be going bad, it is pulling to many amps for some reason, could be a clog somewhere or a bad bearing in the motor.

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..

Hoover windtunnel..runs fine for 5 minutes then stops?


OK - sounds like your machine has a blockage somewhere. Follow manufacturer's instructions for clearing blockages and all should be well. If you no longer have the manual, you can download it from the Hoover website.
Good luck!

Deluxe windtunnel by hoover


Check for a clog in the hose or the dirt inlet by the brush roll. When there is a blockage, the thermo protector will shut the motor off to protect it. That protector could be bad, or a problem with the motor. Is the brush roll turning freely and or is it froze up and won't move.
