Why won't My Hoover savvy won't turn on


Hi Denell! Your vacuum has a thermal protector that will shut it off automatically if it becomes overheated. This is usually caused by a clog or a filter that needs to be cleaned or replaced. Follow these quick steps to check your vacuum for clogs.

1. Remove the dirt cup and the dirt cup lid.
2. Grasp pre-filter frame and pull up and out of dirt cup.
3. Separate the pre-filter and Hepa cartridge filter. The pre-filter can be cleaned with a brush and then rinsed with water. Allow 24 hours to air dry.
4. Clean the Hepa cartridge filter by tapping either of the ends until dirt stops falling from the filter. The Hepa filter should be replaced once a year.
5. Remove the hose from both ends. Use a broom stick to gently loosen and clear any clogs from hose.
6. Use a wooden spoon or something similar to loosen and remove any clogs from the lower hose

The vacuum will turn back on after it cools off. This can take up to an hour. If the vacuum has been off for over 24 hours we recommend taking your vacuum in to a service center for repair. Follow the link to locate the nearest authorized service center to you.

Why is my hoover windtunnel vacuum cleaner shutting off?


Hi there! Sounds like the thermal protector is being activated. This is usually caused by a clog or a filter that needs to be cleaned or replaced. Follow the steps below to prevent the unit from shutting off.

1. Remove the hose completely.
2. Use a broom stick to gently loosen and clear hose of clogs.
3. Remove the bottom plate and brush-roll.
4. Use a wooden spoon or something similar to break up and remove any clogs from lower hose.
5. Check the primary filter behind the side grille. If it is dirty you may rinse it under running water and allow 24 hours to air dry outside the vacuum.
6. Remove the bag door. Clean the primary filter located on the vacuum under the bag. Rinse with water and allow 24 hours to air dry outside the vacuum. The primary and secondary filters should be replaced at least once a year.
7. Check that the bag is not full. If it is, replace the bag.

The vacuum will turn back on when it cools off. This can take up to an hour. Hope this was helpful!

If the filter is clogged would it quit working


Hi there! If the filter is clogged this will cause the vacuum to lose suction and possibly shut-off. Below are instructions to checking and cleaning your filters.

1. Remove the dirt cup. Twist off the dirt cup lid.
2. Remove the filter cartridge from dirt cup.
3. Separate the foam and cartridge filters. Wash foam filter under running. Allow 24 hours to air dry outside the vacuum.
4. Tap the excess dirt out of Hepa filter. Hepa filter may also be washed. Allow 24 hours to air dry.
5. Check the secondary filter by removing the filter cover from base. Rinse the foam filter under running water until it runs clear. Allow 24 hours to air dry.
6. The red baffle tube inside of the dirt cup is apart of the filtration of the vacuum and needs to be cleaned as well. Twist out the baffle tube by turning 1/4 turn clockwise. Remove any hair or debris wrapped around baffle tube. Baffle tube can be rinsed if needed. Allow to dry thoroughly.

If the filters are too dirty they may need to be replaced. With regular maintenance the filters should be replaced about once a year. Follow the links below to order replacement filters for your UH20020.

U5180-910 vacuum shuts off on own


I had same problem. Turned out to be the filter that sits above the waste cannister. Remove the waste cannister. There is a little orange lever that releases the filter. It was caked with dirt not allowing any air flow causing the motor to overheat.

This foam filter gets dirty pretty fast.

My vacuum is not sucking at all.....


I took out the air flow filter at the back of the vacuum and turned it on, somehow the clog cleared. Then I put the filter back in and it works perfectly! Barb
