SOURCE: mach 5 hoover turns off

Just got a solution off another website. There is a pre motor filter about the dust collection container. I opened mine and it was very dirty. I washed the filter and you are supposed to let it dry out for 24 hours. Hopefully this will work. Another guy said it worked for him.

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: My Hoover Windtunnel cuts off after using it for a few minutes. After an hour or so, I can turn it back on again. This keeps happening every time I use it. This is my third one. I have taken the other

yes this machine has a thermal protector in it to shut off the machine if it gets to hot, this is normal. if there is no clogs in the hoses or in the machine then you will need to wash the filter at the top of the machine. you will have to remove the dirt cup and at the top you should see a half moon orange, well inside of this piece is the washable filter, clean and let it dry completly before putting back into machine. if this gets dirty and has not been cleaned, you can lose alot of suction. in some cases if this filter is not cleaned it can cause the machine to overheat so bad that it can damage the motor.

Throw away your old filter if it is not cleanable. Only clean it if it is a washable filter. If not, buy a new one

My Hoover U6458-900 shuts off after a few minutes of vacuuming. I let it set a few minutes and it will start up again.


It sounds as if the motor has overheated at some point, and damaged the thermal protector fuse in the motor compartment. Clean the filters thoroughly, change the bag, and try to operate it. If it still shuts down, the thermal protector will need replacement. ( Part # 47534032 )

My Hoover runs for a few minutes and shuts off.


It's possible the thermal reset is defective. It shuts the motor off if it gets hot. Remove the bag door and take the bag off, remove both filters and then turn the vacuum on, just leave it sit there with the motor running. This eliminates the bag or filters causing any airflow resistance. If it still shuts off after a few minutes it's likely the thermal reset is bad. Some vacuums have an external thermal reset button which can be replaced if necessary but on your model it is built into the motor and you must replace the motor. If the motor runs fine put the bag and the filter under the bag back in - (make sure the filter is clean and not restricting airflow) put the bag cover on then turn it on again. If it overheats and shuts off then you may have a clog on there somewhere restricting the airflow. If so check the power nozzle area, the hose coming from the power nozzle, the extension hose and wands for clogs or restrictions.

After a few minutes the hoover stops. After waiting a few minutes it runs again but the problem keeps repeating


You haven't stated the exact make and model but in general what you're experiencing is a safety feature: your machine is overheating and cuts out to prevent a fire.

Check that the bag isn't full and also check the moving parts for anything which is preventing proper operation. I can't give you specifics as you haven't even said whether it's a cylinder or an upright cleaner.

DO NOT continue to use your vacuum cleaner until you know what the problem is. In it's present state it's a fire risk.

Stops after a few minutes


Its overheating, so the TOC (thermal overload cutout device) is cutting the power to the motor to protect it.
Thats why it works when it has cooled down.
Check for blockages and make sure the filters are clean, if it still happens take to an approved engineer to check the TOC
