SOURCE: Hoover hygiene full bag light

hi,

theres other filters that may be dirty and need to be washed or replaced below or around the bag, study the owners manual for alternate filter locations, basically the machine isnt getting the airflow it needs and is letting you know. The hepa filter is the most expensive, try and run the vac without it and see if the light goes out. Its okay to run it without but I suggest vacumming then dusting, not the other way around..
replace it as soon as possible

Panasonic Hoover cleaner motor cuts out and fuse blows


Using too much current. check to make sure that the motor is spinning at the correct speed. If there is grease caked on bearings it might be spinning slow, overheating, using too much juice and shutting down.
If motor speed is up to par and condition persists you may have some burnt/shorted windings responsible for the issue - the motor has to be replaced.

How can I get my DC26 working?!


They can cut out due to overheating. Although you say you have 'cleared' the filters, they should ideally be washed as they can clog with very fine dust and cause overheating due to lack of air flow. Once a machine cuts out due to overheating it can take maybe half an hour (or longer) to cool down enough to work again.

I have a Vax turbo force 2000w hoover and it doesnt pick up theres hardly any suction and then it cuts out. Any ideas what the problem could be?


Yep,

Your filters are clogged. As a result the motor is straining and overheating, then a thermal cutout operates.

Clean the filters in the top of the vax and if you are ussing a cloth bag empty and wash ot. If a paper bag, replace it.

All should be well

Hoover hygiene- how full does the bag get before the light goes on. I have been vacuuming every week for 3 months and the light hasn't gone on yet.


They usually pack the dirt in pretty tight! You can always check that the light is working by blocking the suction with your hand - if the light doesn't come on you need to get it serviced.

Dyson DC07. Problem:- switch the hoover on and it cuts out after approximately 1 second. Any ideas please?


The motor has a built in over-current trip to protect itself (and you if it seriously overheated and caught fire). This normally automatically resets itself, however if the motor has just about had it, the moment it is switched on, it just trips again.

The primary cause of motors overheating is that the filters are not cleaned or replaced frequently enough. Dont be fooled by Dyson's "lifetime filters". They need to be regularly cleaned and replaced when necessary.

Replacement motors are avaible on eBay for about £25, however repalcing one requires good DIY skills and tools.

Have a look at www.dysonmedic.com and see if you feel you can tackle it yourself. If not, take it to a repair shop or call the Dyson helpline.

HOOVER WINDTUNNEL SELF PROPELLED OVERHEATING AND SHUTTING OFF


It sounds like it is overheating because of a blocked flow of air that keeps the motor cool. Check for a blockage from the area of the
roller brush through the hose to where it goes into the bag.

Hoover cuts out after 5 minutes and will not restart until its cooled down.


OK - so it cuts out because it's overheating. The cause of this is almost always a blockage. You don't say what model of vacuum this is, so I can't guide you where to look. If you've got flexible hoses, check them. Also check all filters and any other airways you can get at. If you are 100 percent sure that everything is clear, but the problem persists, then the motor's at the end of its useful life.

Flair motor shorting out?


There's a thermal cut-off when the unit has overheated. Mine does this quite often and I remedy it by emptying the canister and making sure the filter is clean, especially of lint and things that prevent good air flow.
