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!

As I was vacuuming my vacuum cleaner stopped working


Hi, it's Allie from Crucial Vacuum!

Your Hoover Windtunnel may have stopped working for several reasons. First, make sure that your unit is properly plugged into an electrical outlet and make sure the electrical outlet is working correctly. Vacuum units, and other appliances, protect themselves from sudden electrical charges, ups and downs. Make sure the electrical fuse and breaker are on, if not reset breaker.

Some units may heat up and will automatically shut themselves down to prevent fires. Allow your unit to cool down for 30 minutes while the thermal protector is automatically reset. Overheating, may have been caused by a clogged hose, dirty filters, full bags or a roller brush that is not running properly. All these situations compromise the unit's air flow and make the unit work harder, making it to heat up.

To avoid these situations and to keep your unit running at it's maximum capacity, make sure to change filters regularly (recommended every 3-6 months), clean your brush roll from any tangled hair strands or debris monthly (roller brushes are recommended to be replaced at least yearly), and replace belts every 6 months.

Vaccume shuts off after 5 minutes of using. will only start after sitting for hours.


This sounds like an overheat condition. You must have plugged air flow, so rather than cause a fire, the unit shuts down until cooled. Find and remove the blockage << Not always an easy task.

Windtunnel bagless vaccum model uh6000 on/off switch no longer working, must plug/unplug unit to use. Can switch be replaced?


Hi,

Yes they can be replaced and are relatively easy to fit. In my opinion, Hoover are one of the best vacuum manufacturers when it comes to obtaining spares and you should have no problem getting one. I did a (very quick) search and this switch apparently fits all Windtunnel Hoovers:

If this doesn't look like your switch, I suggest calling the supplier to verify which part you need for your model. If you'd rather get one fitted for you, any competent appliance enginner or an authorised Hoover service centre should be able to obtain and fit the part easily. I wouldn't pay more than $20-25 in total as they take about 5-10 minutes to fit, max.

I bought it in may , I can honestly say , it is THE worst vaccum


There are several filters on bag-less vacuums that need to be cleaned. Dig out your owners manual or open the one below. See section 3 for filters and maintenance. If you are vacuuming a house bigger than about 1500 square feet, you should be cleaning the filters every other use. Personally, after using a bagless for a couple of months, I went back to my bagged vacuum.

Windtunnel ultra U6425-900 stops running after 5 minutes


Sounds like its overheating and cutting out.
This is normally caused by a blockage or blocked filers.
