SOURCE: Overheating Hoover

Most likely caused by a lack of airflow. Check to see if you have airflow at the end of the hose. If not, Remove all of the hoses and ensure that they are not clogged. If there is airflow through the hose; check the air inlet immediately aft of the brushroll, inside the nozzle. This is a very common place for clogs to form.

Also note: contrary to some manufacturers claims, you can not clean (or wash, for that matter;) a hepa filter. The small particles are too embedded in the filter media to ever get completely removed, and the act of cleaning tends to damage the filters, even if you can't see the damage. This is why bagless life-spans, on average, are half the length of the life-spans of bagged vacuums.

Good luck,

SOURCE: Bosch Vacuum Cleaner: I changed

Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

It sounds like you may have a bad thermal switch inside the machine. Most vacuum cleaners have a switch connected to the motor, so if the vacuum cleaner is running hot, it will shut off to prevent any damage to your motor. You did all the right things by checking the bag, making sure the hose was NOT clogged, and replacing HEPA filter.

Most of the time on canister vacuums, the reason is caused by a clog in the hose, or somewhere in the powerhead. If you're sure that there is no clog anywhere, it is going to be the thermal switch on the motor.

Here's a link to the parts schematic for the Bosch upright vacuum. I hope it helps you in determining how to access the thermal switch. A word of warning to you before you try it, this is a very tough vacuum cleaner to work on, you may want to bring it in to a vacuum repair shop, as this is not an easy repair.

Here's the link;

SOURCE: panasonic MC-V7395 Belt overheating/snapping

I have the same problem. I keep thinking I have fixed it, but then another belt breaks. I only have the issue when the roller is disengaged. (on bare floor setting). I did find that the unit was slipping back into engaged slowly, because the disengage mechanizim was not kathing prperly,. Tightened up a screw, and now appears to hold, but somehow the belt still get broken - I beleave it is an issue that the belt is not staying away from the drive when it is disengaged.

SOURCE: My vacuum cleaner is not sucking. It's overheated and stopped

In this case it is motor problem, you can sort out only by calling the technician. Call the customer care and check out the cost for repair, if it is very high you can go for a new one and be in peace of mind.

Thank you.

Reset switch



There is no reset button it as a Thermal Cut Off



This vacuum cleaner has a special thermostat that protects the cleaner in case of motor overheating. If the cleaner suddenly

shuts off, turn the switch off and unplug the cleaner.

Check the cleaner for a possible source of overheating such as a blocked hose or clogged filters. If these conditions are found, fix

them and wait at least 30 minutes before attempting to use the cleaner. After the 30-minute period, plug the cleaner back in and

turn on the switch. If the cleaner still does not run, then call 1-800-282-2886 for customer assistance

Dysons animal overheats and turns off What do we


The electric motor inside your Dyson 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, next time 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 available on eBay2_bing.gif for about £25, however replacing 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.

It sounds like the motor has overheated and has now been irrepairable damaged.

Simplicity 7 Series Vacuum. Suddenly stopped.


There is a thermal reset button on your vaccum. It is on the rear of the unit, just below the attachments and next to the sticker with the serial numer etc on it. The vacuum is designed to turn itself of if too much heat gets built up to prevent it from "burning up."

Just stopped running while vacuuming


When a vacuum cuts out while working, it usually indicates overheating. Most have a thermal cut-out, which will reset itself if given time to cool. The cause is usually a blockage of some sort.

it is overheating clean all suction ports well, as well as the brush. clean or replace all filters, especially the hepa. Hopefully the damage is not irreversible, if so the motor is most likely done for.

No suction


Sounds like your motor bearings are going bad. This is generally indicated by the motor overheating, and the heat transferring out through the motor pulley, which is where the belt attaches. So, your machine is overheating, melting the belt, and then tripping the thermal cutout. When it cools and you restart it, the belt is no longer functioning due to being melted, and this would make it not pick up on carpet. If you look at the motor pulley and it is turning blue: this is indicative of overheating.
The other possibility is that there is a clog, which is also causing your motor to overheat; so before you throw it away make sure all of your air pathways are clear.
The fact that you've had it 8 years is somewhat remarkable, however, since most vacuums of this type are averaging a 3-5 year lifespan. (And half that for bagless.)
So, check for clogs, and if it's not clogged, you're probably due for a new machine.
