Clean the hose very well that is sure to fix you problem I repair vacuums for a living this is very common do not use it again until you clean the hose really well stick a pole to a broom all the way through the hose and rinse the filters in hot water and let them air dry and it will run like normal when you push the broom stick through the hose it will free it of any debris if this does not work it is trash

SOURCE: my hoover mach 6 bagless overheats, shuts off for

This is telling you that there is poor air flow or a blockage somewhere. To simply check for proper suction, remove the accessory hose to see if there is normal suction, if not then your problem is further in the unit. Troubleshooting from there will tell you where the problem is. Another possibility is that your thermal overload circuit is faulty. in this case a pro vac shop needs to service the issue.

Vacuum runs for awhile and then shuts off


This sounds like an overheat issue. I suspect that something has restricted the air flow. Air flow is required for function and to cool the motor. if the air flow is restricted a thermal limiter opens the circuit, rather than have a fire.

It was working fine and them just stopped it is not that old and was not making noises HELP!!


Vacuum cleaners have electric motors in them that require proper airflow to pass over them to keep them cool. Many vacuum cleaners have a thermal (heat) sensitive shut off mechanism built in. This mechanism should prevent the burn out of the motor. If you run a vacuum too long with a clogged hose or clogged filters (especially bagless vacuums) or clogged bags, that is essentially choking the vacuum for air and not allowing it to breath properly. This will cause it to overheat and shut down. Most of the big box store purchased vacuums have very thin wires in the motor windings and can only do this a few times before the motor completely fails. If your vacuum has been shutting down, then cooling off and restarting after about 30 to 45 minutes, then shutting down after only a few minutes of use, your machine is probably clogged up or the filters are compacted.

Is it possible to overheat the motor?


This can happen , normally if the filters are kept clean and replaced now and again the motor should last quite a few years if it does overheat then it has a thermal cut off that resets after it cools down ,,Hope this is of some help

After using the unit for a few minutes it cuts off.


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 eBay 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.

Bosch vacuum Motor turns off after a few minutes


It sounds like you have a motor protection fuse that resets after an overheat/cooling cycle.These work the same as a circuit breaker in your house with the difference being they can reset themselves.The Bosch will also shut down if there is insufficient airflow and I would check your filters first.1) Pull the filter and let the machine run.Do not pick up debris when you operate without a filter-it will be drawn straight into the motor.If it runs fine without shutting down, all you need to do is change your filter.If it shuts down again check the external hose for any blockages.Also check the throat from the powerhead for any blockages.If you continue to have the same problem then you will need to replace the fuse because at this point you have eliminated all the other likely problems.Good Luck-Scott

The motor seems to overheat and smell a bit like burning.runs noisily too.this only seems to have happened since I used the small turbo brush for the first time ever on the stairs.


Check that there is no build up of fluff or debris in the machine. If the motor is getting hot its cos its not getting enough air ... through obstruction... probably you have something like a screw etc thats touching moving parts and restricting flow. Dont run machine hot... allow to cool right down before switching on again.

Hoover wind tunnel


Did you check down by the brush roll for a clog in the dirt inlet. And is the brush roll turning freely, if it is being lugged down, it can cause the motor to overheat and the thermo protector will caught it off, until the motor cools down. But if both are ok, then maybe the motor protector needs to replaced, it is prematurely tripping.
