Its activated its thermal cut off. Check the filters - if the paper pleated cone filter is blocked throughly tap it gently to loosen dirt before washing it completely and drying it in a low temp tumble dryer (put it in a pillow case with a towel inside the pillowcase to stop it knocking off the sides in the dryer.) Also check the main dust channels behind the bin and also behind the beater bar as it may well be clogged. Then reinstall everything and check again.

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.

Dirt Devil Extreme Quick Vac - Won't turn on


Check that the filters are completely clear and not blocked - especially the top filter on top of the bin assembly. If its clogged completely brush it free of dirt and then reassemble. Make sure the inner cone filter and mesh filter is also completely clean. Then check the hose and main dust channel - something is clogged that makes this machine overheat and stop working - and often with this model (Hoover also make it in the UK under the Alyx name) its down to clogged filters or small clogs of dust in the dust channels. 
Don't forget to rate, thanks.

Hoover Alyx 2000w, no power. Help!??


Its a possibility then that if the fuse has been replaced that the cable inside has either come apart or you have a broken switch. If its only a year then you should be covered automatically with Hoover's guarantee.

Vax v-60P turboforce pet bagless upright 2000w


hi phoned vax today.. they said there's definately NOT a problem with that particuliar model. I now have to send the 2nd cleaner back to them to repair...If this problem occurs again they will replace it with another model!!!
so watch this space!!!
I think having two vacs blow up is too much of a coincidence!
I have been using vacs for nearly 40 years & I've never had this happen before!
If Anyone comes across the same problem I would appreciate you letting me know.
Thanks for your time
Liz
