OK - so it cuts out because it's overheating. The cause of this is almost always a blockage. You don't say what model of vacuum this is, so I can't guide you where to look. If you've got flexible hoses, check them. Also check all filters and any other airways you can get at. If you are 100 percent sure that everything is clear, but the problem persists, then the motor's at the end of its useful life.

My new Hoover 2100 Model number PU 2110-001 stops for 20 minutes every 4-5 minutes of use. It seems to get too hot. It has done this since new, I have changed the dust bag & all filters, but it makes...


AS new return to shop, Not fit for purpose, they should replace it. sounds as if thermal fuse is tripping in the motor, resets itself when cooled down.

Vaccume shuts off after 5 minutes of using. will only start after sitting for hours.


This sounds like an overheat condition. You must have plugged air flow, so rather than cause a fire, the unit shuts down until cooled. Find and remove the blockage << Not always an easy task.

Why doe my hoover mach3 stop during operation? I have to wait until the moter cools down.Then i turn on the switch normal way.Then a few minutes latter it stops again.


Your Hoover is stopping because it is overheating. This is a sure sign that there is a blockage somewhere. Find the blockage and clear it, and that should solve the problem.

Stops after a few minutes


Its overheating, so the TOC (thermal overload cutout device) is cutting the power to the motor to protect it.
Thats why it works when it has cooled down.
Check for blockages and make sure the filters are clean, if it still happens take to an approved engineer to check the TOC

Shuts down after 10 min use


I would clean or replace filters on it check the hose to make sure it is not blocked . It sound like it is over heating and making the breaker kick off and after it cools down it resets this is caused by dirty filters or blocked hoses.

Our Hoover U5780-900 stopped working while using the attachment. We let it cool down for about 5 minutes and it fired back up. It appears to shut down when it overheats.

Did you check down by the brush roll for a clog in the dirt inlet. And is the brush roll turning freely, if it is being lugged down, it can cause the motor to overheat and the thermo protector will caught it off, until the motor cools down. But if both are ok, then maybe the motor protector needs to replaced, it is prematurely tripping.

A clog or partial clog is what causes the motor to overheat, then a thermo protector will cut off and the motor will stop until it cools down. So either you do have a clog, in the hose or down by the brush roll. If they are clear, and the filters are clean, then maybe the thermo protector is bad and needs to be replaced.

MY CLEANER CUTS OFF


My Hoover S3639 on/off switch stopped working. I don't hear the 'click' any more. I removed the top of the vacuum but can't determine how to replace the switch.
