The Hoover is likely built with a temperature overload protector, to shut down the unit if it gets excessively hot. All the units will get heat build-up from the suction motor during use.

H3000 Motor becomes very hot during use


Over heating on a floormate is cuased by obstructions or a clogged up filter. Try running it without the recovery tank. If it doesn't over heat you need to check for obstructions in the nozzle and the tube leading up to the recovery tank. if that is all clear, a new filter should fix it.

If the machine over heats without the recovery tank on it, you might be right. Hoover only sells motor assemblies, not just the brushes. I have never seen them used enough to need new motor brushes simply because of wear. If the brushes are worn down completely, there is probably a short in the motor.

Let me know if this helps.

Brushes don't rotate during floor cleaning


Check that no strings or other debris is clogging the brush wheels. If it isnt that check that the belt isnt broken connecting the brush to the motor. If that is ok, most likely the motor is blown and not turning the belt.

Motor housing is hot


This model has 2 side filters, check and clean those. Be aware that this is a quick clean vac, not to be used for extended periods of time to replace a full size upright. clean the inside filter in the dirt cup.

Hoover U5468-900 WindTunnel Supreme suction is suddenly poor


The other possibility is there is a blockage in the foot. these models have dual channel air flow (windtunnel) and become blocked when not cleaned depending on use. under the roller there is a cavity that can be removed for cleaning. a hot motor can be caused by poor air flow.

Hoover Cyclonic Fusion Vacuum overheats and shuts off.


If it gets too hot it will shut down for about an hour...it does that to protect the motor. A lot of tools and work appliances seem to have that feature nowadays.

Hoover wind tunnel vacuum cleaner shuts off during use


Check the inlet down by the brush roll to make sure it isn't clogged. If not and the hose isn't clogged, then probably the thermo protector (part #28382093) maybe bad. It is mounted near the motor. Could be motor Part #43576188. But I would suspect a clog in the inlet or hose, or the thermo protector has gone bad.
