Re: My hoover 2000w keeps stopping. There is no blockage....

You must be in the UK, that is where this model comes up. Anyway, you did you check the inlet by the brush roll for a clog? Hoovers have a thermostat mounted by the motor, they go bad and if this is the problem you will have to replace it. Motor will run but the themo thinks there is a blockage and shuts the motor down until it cools down.

Reddevil6 is correct. This model number is a no-show. It would help to know if this is a canister or an upright, bagged or bagless. Canister models start with the letter "S" and uprights with the letter "U". You will usually find the model number on a silver sticker on the bottom of the unit, or in the case of some uprights, on the lower back of the handle.

I have a Vax turbo force 2000w hoover and it doesnt pick up theres hardly any suction and then it cuts out. Any ideas what the problem could be?


Your filters are clogged. As a result the motor is straining and overheating, then a thermal cutout operates.

Clean the filters in the top of the vax and if you are ussing a cloth bag empty and wash ot. If a paper bag, replace it.

All should be well

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.

Hoover windtunnel..runs fine for 5 minutes then stops?

OK - sounds like your machine has a blockage somewhere. Follow manufacturer's instructions for clearing blockages and all should be well. If you no longer have the manual, you can download it from the Hoover website.
Good luck!

Hoover Alyx 2000w, no power. Help!??

Its a possibility then that if the fuse has been replaced that the cable inside has either come apart or you have a broken switch. If its only a year then you should be covered automatically with Hoover's guarantee.
