Vaccum afuera 550 start few minutes and stop few secondes, after 10 min its stop 30 sec and start 3 sec, after 20 min start ok


Your vacuum may be clogged, overheating and shutting off. Check for obstructions in the hose by laying it as straight as possible and shining a flashlight in one end while looking thru the other end. If you have a curved hose end, try holding the suction hose from another vacuum while checking for airflow in the opposite end.

My dirt devil keeps shutting off randomly


It's overheating. Empty the cup and replace the filters. There's a breaker that opens up and turns it off when it gets too hot. When it cools down it closes back up and it will run again. It'll argue with you til the end of time or until you fix the problem.

Good Luck

Is there any known do-it-yourself fix for the nutone vx-550 overheating problem?


there is a way to do it, yes. However, are you sure that the PC board inside is not what is causing the problem?? I mean, are the lights on and function normally when you turn the switch on or off??

If so you can proceed to bypass the two thermal cut offs located on the field coil on both sides of your motor inside. Yes, it can be done without taking the motor apart.
Also, move the other thermal next to the motor and attach it to the housing near the back of the machine. DO NOT remove it unless you absolutely need to. IE test the unit and let it run for approx 20-25 mins. if it does not shut off there is no problem with the last thermal cut off. If it shuts down within 5 mins, take it out too. It could be faulty now.

Good luck,
Mark

Power cuts maybe after 10 mins use, then after switching off for an hour or so, it works again! repeat.


I would think that it is probably a motor going bad and tripping the overload switch. After the overload resets, it will run again. Is there a chance that the motor is still under warranty? Some vacuum maker warranty the motor for longer than the rest of the vacuum (Dirt Devil is 6 years on the motor) so hopefully they will fix it for free. One other thing, should be obvious, but I'll ask anyway -- the brush is turning properly and the vacuum has suction when it is working, right? if something is jammed that could overload the motor as well.

Vacuum shuts down after 5-10 min of use


It may have a problem of overheating. If you havn't cleaned out the thing that holds all the dirt and dust, you may want to consider doing that. There might be a thermostat in it that shuts down whenever it thinks it's to hot.

Hoover Vacuum works, then stops in 3-5 mins. Works again in a couple of hours


sounds like the motor is overheating .check and see if the brush roller is turning when its on.if its hard to turn or won't turn at all take it back where you bought it and insist on a new one.my thoughts on new items is if you buy something new then it shouldn't have to be fixed.insist on it.please leave feedback...pete

THE VACUUM CLEANER WORKS FOR 6-7 MINS THEN CUTS OUT, THEN AFTER A WHILE STARTS AGAIN FOR A FURTHER 6-7 MINS THEN KEEPS REPEATING THIS PROBLEM


What you describe is typical of a machine that's overheating. This is almost always caused by a blockage. Check the machine thoroughly for any blockages, including any filters, and my bet is that you will find something that shouldn't be there that needs removing (or possibly replacing). I hope this helps.  Good luck!
