With an ohms meter you have to test for voltage at the motor if power is there, motor is bad if no power go to on switch check and try by passing it this will let you know where your problem is.

I have a Hoover wind tunnel that suddenly stopped working when the cannister got full. Once emptied still would not start. Anything to fix this? Does it have an automatic shut off when full?


If the airflow is restricted the motor will overheat. Most vacuums have a thermal heat sensor built into the motor which will shut the motor off until it cools down.

Agitator bar on UH4700RM wind tunnel doesn't turn


Unfortunately you machine is a re manufactured vacuum and has a 6 month warranty. (The RM suffix indicates this ) You should take it to your local vac shop and let them look at it. It's probably a minor issue.

Suction has diminished since I purchased it a year ago. Hose is not blocked, Cannister is empty, and plastic filter above cannister is clean. What could be the problem?


Three possibilities I can think of:
1. Leak/holes in the hose.
2. The fan blade are worn down or broken. The more they're worn down, the less suction.
3. The motor itself is dirty and/or wearing out.

Any one of those problem would call for a replacement of the part involved, or the vacuum itself. It could also be a combination of any of them.

Hose works. Brush spins, but dirt flies out the back. Have had for less than 6 months.


I have found with a vacuum under a year old that it should be taken back when ever poss to the shop aslong as you have the garrentee as if you try and repair it you can not take it back afterwards

does it smell like an electrical burning odor? could very possibly be the motor going bad already. ive seen it happen. but if not try freshwave odor absorbing pearls. i carry it in my store and we do have shipping. Truly the only thing you should use to get rid of odors in a bagless vacuum, it wont clog your filters

No suction


Your filters are clogged. Dysons have two filters. One is the washable one located directly beneathe the cannister. The other is a post filter located inside of the vacuum housing. This filter should be replaced by a Dyson technician. The Dyson company recommends you replace your filters every 6 months to a year, depending on how often you vacuum.

your motor in the vacum is getting hot.Thats why it shuts off.Its fitted with a shut off switch to stop you doing any damage to it.1 The reason for getting to hot is that you are filling the cannister to full.Try emptying it half.good luck.

Probably a hose clog. Check the hose on the back of the cannister. Most likely clogged where it attaches to allow debris into the cannister. If cannister is not filling up, that's a sure sign. To remove from top of back of cannister, just turn the ring on the end of the hose to release. Take it outside and push a long thin object through it to force out the clogged hair or debris. The motor is designed to shut off the vacuum cleaner for 30 minutes when this happens to avoid burning up your motor.

Bissell Lift-Off Turbo power outage


We experienced the same thing. There are several filters on the vacuum cleaner that need to be cleaned out regularly (monthly in the user's guide). But the reason ours was shutting down is a protective circuit that cuts power for 30 minutes to avoid burning up a motor when there is a clog. Our clog was in the hose on the back of the cannister. One end of it can be lifted out of the bottom. The other end locks into place on the top (by rotating the ring on the end of it). It is the path for the hair and debris to the bagless cannister. We found that the top end of that hose was clogged with hair preventing anything from going into the cannister. So if your cannister is not filling, that's probably your problem. Easy to remove the hose and it's only about 18" long, so find something to stick through it and force out all the clogged debris and hair. Good luck!
