Could be overheating, when its cooled down will go again, make sure your filter is cleaned and the hose is not blocked

Testimonial: "The sensor attached to the wires on motor was touching the motor. Moved this higher up and pinned. Does not cut out any More. Thanks"

  • Howard Galley Sep 29, 2009

    One of two things

    1 could be a faulty cut out stat on the motor,

    2 or the motor its self is overheating and faulty so hence the cutting out

It could be a damaged cord, or the contacts in the winding mechanism are damaged.

U5758-900 Hoover Vacuum. It stops a couple of seconds after turning it on. It would turn on and off again if I keep trying to turn it on a second later. It is not the switch. I think it might be a fuse but...

Try checking for loose or broken wiring. Sometime with the right movement and/or vibration, the wire will make contact and turn on the vacuum and vice versa.

My Henry the Hoover has stopped working, I turned it on and it just stopped and there was a horrible smell.,

It sound like you burned it up when the bags fill on these uprites people keep using them the dirt gets in to the motors and burns them out I would say take it to your vacuum repair

Water in Henry vacuum cleaner motor.

I would say it's essential to open Henry up, otherwise (assuming he has indeed got water inside him) you will wait for ever for him to dry. He can be opened very easily - just undo the four recessed screws on the underside of his hat, and the upper part will lift off. Pay attention to the switch (or switches, depending on the model) as that may be more vulnerable to water penetration than the motor. The motor compartment may have water in it, but the motor itself is probably fairly well protected. When you've got it opened and mopped up any visible water, it will help to give it a blow with a hair dryer.
If in doubt, though, get a professional to deal with it. It pays not to mess with electricity if you're unsure!

Turns itself off

Your problem sounds electrical in nature. possibly the on/off switch. Take it to a reputable repair shop to determine the exact issue.

Rewiring a Henry Hoover

Ignoring for the moment the fascinating question of why you would actually want to do this...  I'm sorry to tell you it won't work. Swapping the wires over will make no difference.

Electrical Burning Smell from Henry HVR200 Vacuum Cleaner

Hi! Highly unlikely that you need a new motor.  Highly likely that you need new carbon brushes.  The smell is caused by excessive sparking between the worn brushes and the copper commutator segments.  Most carbon brushes (and from memory I suspect this includes Henry's) have a copper wire buried in their last few millimeters, and you really need to change them before that becomes exposed.   The longer you run it like this, the more likely you are to damage the commutator, so change them sooner rather than later.  When you change the brushes, you can smooth off the commutator with very fine abrasive paper (the objective is to smooth it, not scratch it!), and then blow all the dust away (or **** it away if you have another vac, of course).  Incidentally, you don't say if you are using a paper bag in your Henry. Some people, because the top-hat filter is so good, try to manage without a bag.  This is false economy!  You should always use a bag. I hope this helps! I value feedback, so please remember to rate this response.
