Tuned off and won't turn on again

We have a Hoover 6200 Windtunnel with Bag. We were vacuuming and it just stopped. We checked the bag and it was way overfull... we emptied it but the debris was backed up into the machine. Should we toss of try to fix. We are a green family and would like to fix it. Thanks!

I have WindTunnel +cyclonic (no bag) and just had the "shut-off/overheat" problem myself. I looked up some things online and they all pointed toward a clog somewhere or faulty thermal switch. I looked in the manual and found that there was a secret (at least to me) filter located above the wind tunnel that was FILTHY. I just cleaned it (it had never been cleaned in 2 years) and suction greatly improved. I dont know if this solved the problem yet but I am betting this did it for me.
Look for more filters to clean!

This is a great product. Do not pitch. I've own this same unit for years. Take off the handle. There are four screww located half way down the hanlde. Once the handle is off, you will see the red swtich button. Flip the swtich on/off with handle off and unit plugged. The unit should come on. Put the handle back on and it should operate fine. If it doen't you mjay need a new switch

Hoover Windtunnel model U5491900air isblowing out of side filter no air coming into bag

The bag chamber is not sealing properly. Turn on the unit again, block up the hose with one hand and feel around the bag door to determine where the suction loss is coming from. It could be near the bottom of the door where one of the tabs have not been inserted properly. Good luck!
