Question about Hoover 5416-900 WindTunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum
We have a wind tunnel "mach 4.7", I can't seem to find a model number. The unit turns off by itself, CONSTANTLY, after about 2 or 3 minutes of use. I keep it clean and clog free, but nothing seems to work. we even took it to a repairman who "fixed" it, which lasted about a month. The amount of dog hair it sucks up is incredible, but we run it on a pretty regular basis. We can only vacuum one room at a time because we need to let the damn thing "cool off". And we usually have to vacuum the rooms twice to get it all, so its takes all day to vacuum our house. any suggestions?
Replace the HEPA filter with a Hoover filter. Don't use the Arm & Hammer brand sold at Wal-Mart because these filters have an aditional layer to hold the air freshener which restricts air flow causing the filter to clog faster making the unit over heat.

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.
