Using too much current. check to make sure that the motor is spinning at the correct speed. If there is grease caked on bearings it might be spinning slow, overheating, using too much juice and shutting down.
If motor speed is up to par and condition persists you may have some burnt/shorted windings responsible for the issue - the motor has to be replaced.

My Henry Hoover cut out and will not work. Emptied bag and replaced fuse but no success.


If no burning or smelling, maybe nothing to do with motor, and if caused by the safety cut-out, it will need about an hour to cool down, and then check filter, bag, and drop coin through hose, pipes and the floor tool, to check for blockages and to stop it running hot. Damaged cable, worn carbon brushes, broken electrical rewind electrical contacts or even the printed circuit board (later models) are the most likely causes.

Hoover just cut out while we were vacuuming the floor, no power, is there an internal fuse somewhere?


No. there is a thermal fuse that will reset after the motor cools down. Check for blockage and clean filters and clean the cone assembly for proper air flow.

Fuse auto shut off


Find the current rating for the vacuum cleaner motor (on a plate somewhere on the machine). Is it somewhat less than the breaker rating in the panel? If so, then either the motor is overloading the breaker due to bad bearings or a shorted winding in the motor or the breaker is failing. Check the current draw of the running motor with a clamp-on ammeter (a friend with one or an electrician). It should be close to the rating on the plate. If in excess, then the motor needs to be repaired or replaced. The motor normally works harder when it is pulling full vacuum--it speeds up if the air flow is plugged.

Keeps cutting out, and blowing the fuse, not so if tools are being used though


The information you've given suggests a problem with the main brush drive motor. Unfortunately this motor is in a place where it can very easily get wet - hence fuses blowing. Repair is something you probably won't want to attempt yourself (lots of people take them apart and can't reassemble them!). If you do get it repaired, expect the same thing to happen again sooner or later. Alternatively, save money and hire a professional carpet cleaner now and then.

Hoover EmPower 4600 keeps blowing circuit breaker. The number of outlets in the house that will allow me to run the vacuum is dropping quickly. It is a 4 year old house and all the circuit breakers are 20...


take it to a friends house and plug it in if it does the same thing then the problem is in the vacuum cleaner.check your cord and see if there are anny cuts in it.you can open the breaker box then plug in the vacuum and watch the breaker box.you might see a spark and narrow down the problem.
