SOURCE: The PCB controlling the battery
The problem was caused by the failure of 7 of the 1.2volt cells in the battery pack, the other problems were symptoms of the battery pack failure. Replaced the thermal cutout a 131 degree C component on the PCB in the docking station for the vacuum when recharging, I also had to change the LED which had also failed this is a Red 12 volt 5 mm dia component observe the correct polarity when replacing. Also make sure when replacing the thermal cutout that it is secured tightly to the resistor it sits along side, otherwise it will not respond quick enough if there is another failure.

No schematic found. The Q1 transistor is a 2N3904, D3 was replaced with a 1N4000 series.
Root cause still Unknown, but Q1 is an exact match and D3 is an acceptible replacement.
Hoovers solution is to replace the whole PCB no matter whats wrong with it, what a waste or good technology!

I'm not sure why this is happening. Perhaps if you would contact Hoover and explain the problem to them such that it appears that there is a safety issue with their product, they might be more cooperative. If that fails, I have had luck writing letters to the CEO's of companies. You can usually find the CEO name and address online. This is probably not exactly the info that you desire, but I thought I'd add my 2 cents.
