Question about Hoover Vacuums

Open Question

My Hoover T5703 has suddenly stopped working. I was using it, moved it to another room, presssed the start with my foot - and nothing! I have checked that the fuse and electricity socket are both OK.I did knock it over a while ago and am wondering if I have broken a bit of plastic in the foot starter. It doesn't seem to 'click' as firmly as it did, but I cannot see how to take it off to check?

Hey all...

Had this same problem with my Mach 6 (same as Mach 5)

It would shut off after 15 min of use. 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.

SOURCE: burned smell

If the motor slowed down this would indicate a bad motor. not cost effective on this model to replace unless under warranty. it is not uncommon these days to see a motor go bad every now and then.

What are the first 4 digits of your serial number? this would be the month and year of mfr. even without a receipt, a warranty service shop should be able to assist you.

SOURCE: The spin brushes move too slowly.

if you turn the machine over you might see a red tab recessed behind the brush's, if you see one pull it out (it doesn't come all the way out) and clean any debris. Otherwise it might have a small screen in the housing which is not really easy to get to.

Most likely your vent for the suction container is plugged or the suction hose can of or is broken at the connection to the tank nozzle (very common on these. Clean the machine thoroughly, and check that all hoses are tight and connected.

While vacuuming with my hoover mach 5 it all the sudden shut down


Hi, If it is warm to the touch, and it just shut down all of a sudden, I would say that the motor has an internal over load switch that is normally closed, and opened to stop from burning this vac out. It is a built-in safety. I would look at the roller for anything that may have hung up, but steady use for an hour just over heated the motor. Let it cool way down. Try and start it. Also, check the plug to see if you may have lost power there also. Let me know please so I can be of any help you may need.
Sincerely,

The steam vac stopped working while in use and


If the cleaner will not turn on at all, you could have one of several problems:
(1) Bad foot switch
(2) Bad power cord, or
(3) Motor failure.

The unit would need disassembled and tested with a continuity meter to determine the part that failed.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It could be the trigger assm could be broken and is not releasing the solution and or water, or the valve under the water solution tank is not releasing the solution. Please check with your owners manual in the trouble shooting manual or if you do not have a manual, call the Hoover factory cust serv and give them the brand name and model # so that they can send you a new owner’s manual. Your local vacuum cleaner dealer should be able to do a diagnosis of the problem and can give you and est of the repair. Or if the vacuum is less than one year it should be covered under the Hoover factory warranty. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Hoover wind tunnel


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.

Off/on switch does not work


The on/off switch in Hoover Windtunnel upright vacuum cleaners is operated by a lever in the handle assembly.  remove the two screws on the back ovf the vacuum and see if the lever has bypassed the switch assembly.  if so, re-assembly should fix the problem.  It is also possible that the switch activating lever has broken.  If so, replace the activating lever.

Vacuum doesn't work when main attachment is on....


S3765-040, power head would not run when the handle was elevated. Problem was with wiring from connecter plug on power head swivel into the power head itself, because of the design the wire tends to develop a short. Test it by turning on the vacuum, elevate the handle, then when it stops running move the visible part of the wiring with you foot/hand. If it starts/stops then you have a short. Replacement part was about $10.
