Question about Hoover U5194-900 Mach5 Multi-Chamber Cyclonic Vacuum Cleaner Bagless Vacuum

2 Answers

The vacuum turns off mid cleaning

I can vacuum for about 15 min. before it shuts off. I have taken it apart to find any kind of blockage that maybe causing the motor to heat up so fast only to no avail. I have dealt with machines with an auto shut off in the event of over heating, but this is either a very sensitive system or there is something that needs to be fixed. I know you can help me!! Thank you!

I had the same problem, took the whole thing apart and to my supries I had over looked a filter mounted just above the canister. There is an orange lever to remove it with. When I took the filter out it was so caked with fine dirt particles it took me 15 min to wash it clean. The silly thing is there is a lable at the back of the canister compartment that shows you where the filter is.

Vax stopped mid vacuuming,as though fuse in plug has blown.checked fuse,OK.no lights lit.vax not working.


Most vacuums have thermal protection on the motor that will shut it off if it gets too hot. If you can turn it off, wait 10-15 minutes, and it works when you turn it back on, that's what is going on. Now, the motor shouldn't normally get that hot, so your next challenge is finding out why. Check for any blockages in the air flow or cooling vents, and if the motor also powers something like a beater bar, make certain that it turns relatively freely.

Roller stops working after just a few seconds


Haven't had this problem, but sounds like an obstruction of some kind. Turn the vacuum upside down and clean any lint, thread or hair around the roller and make sure there is nothing stuck in there that would impede the roller. I have a long haired dog and have to do this regularly.

My Dyson 14 Animal seems to not have the suction


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

Firstly check that the brush bar control on the cleaner head is in the correct position. You may have switched the brush bar off the last time you used it or the dial may hav got knocked when you vacuumed under some low furniture.

If this is in the correct position but the brush bar is still not turning, switch the machine off and remove the soleplate by turning the 3 fasteners on the base of the machine and checking for blockages and remove any threads or hairs around the brush bar.

I would recommend washing the filter if it hasnt been done for a while.

You may find it useful to follow the blockage procedure and filter washing instructions in your user guide, however if you no longer have this available you download a replacement for free via the support section on our website at www.dyson.com.

I hope that this information is useful to you.

Kind regards

I changed the motor in my Dyson Animal hoover and works fine but after 15 minutes it stops as if it was turned off, if i leave it for a period (2 hrs)it will start up again and work for a further 15 mins...


Hi there

All Dyson vacuum cleaners are fitted with a thermal cutout, which will switch off the motor if it becomes too hot. This is normally caused by a lack of airflow to the motor, i.e caused by a blockage or a dirty filter.

I would make sure that you have completed the full blockage procedure and have thoroughly washed the filter and see if this helps.

Kind regards

My dco7 quits running after 10 min I wait 15 min to start again


This is a sure sign of a blockage. The motor cuts out because it gets too hot and will start again when it has cooled. Follow the instructions in your user manual for clearing blockages (you can download a copy from the Dyson website if necessary). Make sure the washable filter is clean too (and completely dry before you use it).

Hoover wind tunnel vacuum cleaner shuts off during use


Check the inlet down by the brush roll to make sure it isn't clogged. If not and the hose isn't clogged, then probably the thermo protector (part #28382093) maybe bad. It is mounted near the motor. Could be motor Part #43576188. But I would suspect a clog in the inlet or hose, or the thermo protector has gone bad.
