My Hoover Duros (blue color, S3000 something model with the power brush) worked fine for 3 years, than it died. The other day I couldn't turn it on... What can it be? A fuse? Where's is the fist in...

To reset the breaker:

(1) Push the ON/OFF switch

resistance when the switch moves

downward. The switch will also move

slightly upward on its own.

(2) Wait one minute.

(3) Repeat step 1.

(4) Turn the cleaner ON and continue

cleaning.

If the brushes continue to stall and

the breaker trips again, clean the

Hoover bagless keep shutting off after about 5 minutes of cleaning and take about 30 minutes or more to work again. Is it overheating and why? how can I fix this?


Your hoover has a thermal protector that shuts power to the motor off for 30 mminutes if it trips. Tripping of the thermal protector it typically caused by an obstruction of some sort, there are several locations to check. First, remove the bagless filter and look for a rectangular plastic object centered under where the canister was. This "final fillter" is often overlooked and can be washed in your kitchen sink. Let dry completely before using. Other things to look at are on the big plastic filter inside the canister, make sure the holes arent clogged with dirt, this also can be washed in your sink. Of course check the lines from just behind the brush all the way to the filter for clogs. If all else fails, take it and your warranty if still good to an authorized service center to have it serviced... I've noticed on this model, if the thermal protector trips too many times, it seeems to be more prone to trip to the point that it doesn't matter if theres a clog or not anymore. This is how I found out about this problem, as I work for a hotel using these (and these are not designed to be commercial grade). They cost like $50 to service this $80 vaccume so, being that the warranty was void for using them commercially, and the cost of the servicing, I simply bypassed the thermal protector and make it a point to completely clean them 1-2 times a weeek till we can get a more commercial model.

My hoover keeps tripping the house fuse everytime i plug it in


The fuse in the plug must have blown or you have a broken wire along the cord length somewhere. Is anything wet?

After running for 15 minutes, the windtunnel vacuum cleaner shuts off. It will not restart until it has been off for 30 minutes. Could it be overheating for some reason. All of the filters are clean;...


It's not necessarily overheating, but the thermal-fuse is definitely tripping and it takes 30 minutes to reset. There are several causes of this (in most common order):

1. A blockage in the suction system or a full dust tank
2. Dirty filters (Don't forget to check the air outflow filter at the back)
3. A worn belt
4. A faulty thermal fuse.
5. A faulty motor

As you've stated that the dust tank is empty and the filters are clean (don't forget to check the HEPA / air outflow filter at the rear), let's look at the other options.

Check the suction is good by putting your hand over the end of the hose and seeing if it will stay attached to you hand upside down.

Next, check the belt isn't slipping. Lie the hoover on it's side and check the rollers are turning constantly and at high speed. This isn't foolproof as it doesn't account for the extra friction of the brushes on the carpet, but it's a reasonable test. A worn belt wont necessarily be cracked. It can stretch and slip without cracking. Also, when a belt is slipping, you can usually smell burning rubber.

If the hoover runs ok for 15 minutes and there is no burning smell from the motor, then it's more likely a faulty thermal fuse than the motor itself. They are replaceable but unfortunately, thermal fuses aren't always sold separately and sometimes you have to buy a new motor (!!) to get a new fuse. Hoover are one of the best manufacturers when it comes to buying spares, so you might be in luck.

I've removed faulty thermal fuses from vacuums because a spare wasn't available without buying a motor. However, I have always done this with the owners full consent after explaining to them that a safety feature has been removed and they should avoid using the vacuum for prolonged periods without letting it cool. I also test the rest of the vacuum fully before returning it.

If you want to try removing yours, it will be attached to the motor with simple spade connections, but you do this AT YOUR OWN RISK. The danger in doing this is that the motor will burn out if it gets too hot, rather than being switched off by the fuse.

Hoover Mach 5 turns off after 5 minutes of using. Can you advise the problem?


5 minutes everytime? If so, raise brush all the way, and vacuum next to nothing. in fact, tilt vac up so the brush touches nothing. wait 5 minutes. If it doesn't shut off, your brush is set too high. if it does, the motor is over heating. make sure bag is empty, no debris in brush, filters clean and make sure you're not plugged into an outlet that a breaker on the outlet can pop too.

How often should I change a Hoover Empower filter?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Depending on what type of filter it is, the suggested change for a filter is every 6 months to one year if it is a cartridge filter or HEPA filter, if it is a filter that can be vacuumed off or it might be a washable filter – you can clean it that way until the filter starts to fall apart – then @ that time you would want to replace it @ that time. Please check with you local vac dealer. Filters
It's important to replace your vacuum filter or HEPA filter regularly to keep your Hoover vacuum working best. Not only will this increase the life of your vacuum, it will also keep unwanted dust, dirt and allergens out of the air. Keep your home Hoover clean with genuine Hoover filters.
So If you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
