This is telling you that there is poor air flow or a blockage somewhere. To simply check for proper suction, remove the accessory hose to see if there is normal suction, if not then your problem is further in the unit. Troubleshooting from there will tell you where the problem is. Another possibility is that your thermal overload circuit is faulty. in this case a pro vac shop needs to service the issue.

I have a mach 6 that is shutting off....well first take off the cyclonic filter which is the big filter in diagram 3-6 in the owners manual. Clean it out using an air compressor to blow all the dirt out of it. Next clean the Secondary filter, which is the one we didnt notice and it was clogged with about two years of dirt in it. This is the filter in diagram 3-8 in the owners manual. Its kinda hard to see unless you know its there but this is the one causing all the trouble. Again take this filter out and blow it out using an air compressor or wash it with soapy water...but if you wash it you will have to let it dry before you use it again. The last filter is the hepa filter in diagram 3-9 in the owners manual. Clean it with an air compressor as well. Next step is to put it all together and make sure all the hoses are clear of debris by checking for suction at all the hose connections. I cleaned mine and now it is as good as new....which im glad cuz i hate shopping for vacuums.

My Hoover runs for a few minutes and shuts off.


It's possible the thermal reset is defective. It shuts the motor off if it gets hot. Remove the bag door and take the bag off, remove both filters and then turn the vacuum on, just leave it sit there with the motor running. This eliminates the bag or filters causing any airflow resistance. If it still shuts off after a few minutes it's likely the thermal reset is bad. Some vacuums have an external thermal reset button which can be replaced if necessary but on your model it is built into the motor and you must replace the motor. If the motor runs fine put the bag and the filter under the bag back in - (make sure the filter is clean and not restricting airflow) put the bag cover on then turn it on again. If it overheats and shuts off then you may have a clog on there somewhere restricting the airflow. If so check the power nozzle area, the hose coming from the power nozzle, the extension hose and wands for clogs or restrictions.

Check the filter above the dirt tank. If you take out the dirt cup and look where in slides into the machine, there is a filter that is probably dirty. It can be cleaned or replaced

Hoove Cyclonic Bagless vacuum shuts off after only a few minutes


The motor has a protective overload cutout device to stop it from over heating - this can be caused by a blockage of some sort in the hose or brushroll compartment or blocked filters.
After checking the above and it still cuts out, take it back under gurantee

Hoover Mach 4 Overheats and shuts down after a few minutes


You have lost air flow due to blockage. Look for blockage in the throat of the machine where dirt enters from the floor. Do this by removing the base plate or opening throat inspection flap if so equipped. Also detach the hose and drop a coin through to see if there is and obstruction in that area.

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.

I have a Hoover Wind Tunnel bagless mach 4.7 vacuum that shuts off after about 30 seconds. I suspect it is overheating, but there are no clogged lines. The on/off switch is in good working order. Help!!


is your filter clean? you should be able to see the pleats in the filter pretty clearly. also the metal screen that is next to the filter should be clean as well. if the problem continues it could be a faulty thermal protector ( a device that shuts the machine of when it over heats. )

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.

Mach 5 hoover turns off


Just got a solution off another website. There is a pre motor filter about the dust collection container. I opened mine and it was very dirty. I washed the filter and you are supposed to let it dry out for 24 hours. Hopefully this will work. Another guy said it worked for him.

Vacuum shuts off


It sounds like the hose from the bottom part is plugged. The motor has a high temperature protection that will shut the motor off if it overheats but will come back on once it cools. The motor will overheat if any restriction of airflow occurs. If the overload sensor reacts too many times, it will eventuall start to shut off before it should, so you should address the problem asap. Check the area behind the roller and the hose leading up to the connection to the attachment hose for blockage. Also, make sure you are not setting the machine height adjust too low. This will make the bottom plate sit down too close and cause a restriction in air flow to the motor.
