Question about Hoover Vacuums
The filter is probably clogged and restricting the airflow causing it to overheat. Even if you thoroughly clean filters frequently they should be replaced, about once per year depending on the model.

You have a plugged vacuum indicator port. There will be a tiny hole somewhere near the hose inlet. Just clean it with a dry toothbrush. This will allow the vacuum pressure to equalize on either side of the shut off switch.

I had a similar problem. Two things to try. There is a lock symbol on the canister you need to ling it up with the mark on the top (the silver part has a line on it). It can be assembles 3 different ways. Also I over looked the sticker in the back of the canister compartment indicating a filter in the top of the canister compartment. There is an orange lever there to release the filter. Hope this helps.

it might be that the hose connections are bad.or it might be a sensor in the vacuum. call a electrolux vac shop and get it looked at.

Might be that its not exausting enough heat & stutting its self down..
Try cleaning all the filters & the hepa filter..
This will increase air flow & maybe fix the issue..
Hope this helps !!

Hi! It appears your thermal protector sensor has kicked in and caused your cleaner to power off. This is usually due to a clog or a filter that needs to be cleaned or replaced. Try these steps to get your vacuum back up & running!
1. Remove the dirt cup canister from the vacuum. Twist off the dirt cup lid.
2. Remove the primary foam filter. Hold filter under running water until water runs clear. Squeeze out the filter and allow 24 hours to air dry.
3. Slide the Hepa filter out. Tap the filter against the trash can until dirt stops falling. Replace the Hepa filter. (Do not wash)
4. Remove the hose from both ends. Use a broom stick to gently loosen and clear any clogs from hose.
5. Use a wooden spoon or something similar to loosen and remove any clogs from the lower hose.
Your vacuum should turn back on after it cools off, this can take up to an hour. Hope this helps!
