I have a MACH 3 Cyclone that is only a few months old that just suddenly stopped working and went totally dead like there was no power going to it.

I tested the power switch and noticed that there was no power running to the switch.

I then noticed that the switch sat on top of a very long adjustable handle so I figured I would check the pwer connection at the base of the handle.

1) I unscrewed the 2 screws closest to where the power cord goes into the vacuum.
2) Pulled the small blue cover partially out (it wouldn't come out all the way)
3) I found that there is a power cord (looked like a really small extension cord) that runs through the inside of the handle. Adjusting the height of the handle must have made it come uplugged at some point. I plugged this cord back in.
4) I reattached the small blue cover and screwed the 2 screws back in.

This fixed the problem.

I am willing to be that this is a common issue with this vacuum cleaner. Its a 5 minute very easy fix and strongly suggest checking this if your vaccuum suddenly goes completely dead without warning.

Hoover Mach 5 turns off after 5 minutes of using. Can you advise the problem?


5 minutes everytime? If so, raise brush all the way, and vacuum next to nothing. in fact, tilt vac up so the brush touches nothing. wait 5 minutes. If it doesn't shut off, your brush is set too high. if it does, the motor is over heating. make sure bag is empty, no debris in brush, filters clean and make sure you're not plugged into an outlet that a breaker on the outlet can pop too.

Hello,We have an Hoover Mach 5 Cyclonic vacuum that has no suction. We have cleaned and checked all hoses, belts & filters. Please help us.


With this model, remove the dust tank, and turn it on, check for suction at the lower intake. If you have suction, install the tank and remove hose, and check for suction there. keep following until youn lose it. Then you problem will be between those 2 areas

Hoover mach6 the brushes don't turn


Replace the skinny belt, but here's the kicker. turn the belt inside out so that the writing is on the inside and sits against everything. Thats what I did and I have used it once and it worked well, Lets hope it'll keep working.

My hoover mach 6 bagless overheats, shuts off for about an 1 hr will run again, all filters are clean, no blocks in hoses, how can i fix this problem


This is telling you that there is poor air flow or a blockage somewhere. To simply check for proper suction, remove the accessory hose to see if there is normal suction, if not then your problem is further in the unit. Troubleshooting from there will tell you where the problem is. Another possibility is that your thermal overload circuit is faulty. in this case a pro vac shop needs to service the issue.

Hoover mach 3 cyclone vacuum shut off during useage. can't turn it on. cleaned it out and let it sit thinking overheated? this is 2 months old. help?


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.

Hep! My 3 month old Hoover Mach 5 doesn't pick up!


What is happening is the secondary filters, HEPA and the canister all need to be cleaned. This is vital. What the vacuum repair people are keeping from you is that tidbit of wisdom. This particular vacuum is picky about airflow. Pull the canister, and on the body of the vacuum on top of where the canister sits are the secondary filters. There should be a sticker explaining how to remove them. Clean them throuougly, mine was filthy. Make sure you clean the canister by unlocking it and cleaning out the micro holes and the cone end. Mine was completely plugged. Now brush the dirty side of the HEPA filter with the combo tool. Let the secondary filters dry completely (you can blow dry them on cold) Re-install everything, and the vacuum will run like brand new. I vacuumed the whole house after I completed this maintainence and it works like a champ. Don't return this vac until you clean it completely.
