Why doe this hoover switch off after i start cleaning for about two minutes


You have to check the power switch button because it is mostly used part in the vacuum. A loose connection will occur and the power will shut off if that happened. Also clean the motor, if it is full of dirt you'll be sure motor will easily overheated caused it to premature shut down.
Good luck.

Using hoover, stopped working. Bag very full so changed. Hoover seems very hot. Will not work. Checked fuse


Give the vacuum time to coold\ down, then try again. If it still doesn't work, take it to a repair shop to be checked.
When a vacuum is used for long after the bag is full, the motor can overheat to the extent that the motor burns out. This is one of the benefits of having a vacuum that shuts off when the bag is full.
You should also check the hose for clogs. Disconnect at both ends and drop a coin in one end. If it fails to fall through, there's a clog that needs removed. This is likely to happen at the canister end when the bag gets too full.

I have a Miele turbo plus solaris and the red warning light is on. This prevents the vacuum from working. I have changed the bag so I am not sure what to do?


I had this problem with a different model. It's caused by a thermal cutout switch in the motor. My problem was a result of a filter being removed and the bag not seated correctly, hence dirt got into the motor and clogged the turbine, reducing airflow through the motor and causing the over heating.

If your motor runs at all, you probably have a blockage. Replace the filter inside the bag compartment just before the motor vent. Check the hose isn't blocked. Check the exit air filter.

If your turbine is clogged, it's a big disassembly job best done by a professional. If you really want to know how to cure it and feel you can tackle it yourself, email me. alan_at_alanjohnston_dot_com.

If your motor doesn't run at all and the light just quietly comes on, you have a break somewhere in the thermal protection circuit, either in the wiring (unlikely) or inside the circuitry buried inside the motor itself. I had an open on the thermal switch where the combination of heat and vibration deoldered the thermal switch from its board.

Hope this helps.

Red when bag is not full


The red light will also come on when there is a blockage in the pipes leading to the bag compartment. To test that the light is working correctly, you can unplug the flexible hose from the top of the bag compartment then switch the machine on. The red light should be off, but will come on if you block the hole with your hand. If that test shows the light is working, you need to search for a blockage - which is most likely to be in the flexible hose, but can be in the rigid plastic tube or in the base of the machine (turn it over and look in the little trap-door). Clearing a blockage from the hose can be difficult - you are more likely to be successful if you can devise a way to pull it out rather than trying to push it (as with a broom handle, for example), because pushing may just compact it. Good luck!

Bag change indicater staying on and vacuum smells hot when using


I suspect there is a blockage somewhere along the pipes leading to the dust bag.
The bag full or bag change indicator measures how strong a vacuum is present at or near to the point where the bag is connected to the pipes. Under normal conditions an empty bag poses little resistance to the air passing through and therefore causes only a slight vacuum. A full bag poses a lot of resistance and therefore causes a strong vacuum which in turn makes the indicator show time to change.
If, however, there is a blockage somewhere, regardless of the state of the bag, a strong vacuum develops which causes the indicator to show as if the bag is full.
The hot smell is proably a result of the motor having to work hard trying to overcome the blockage.
Try to look into all the pipes - you may need to do a bit of dismantling and/or strech out flexible pipes to do so - to see if there's anything stuck. Also try some (careful and gentle !) poking through the pipes with something like an un-ravelled wire coat hanger, but take great care when poking through the flexible pipes as these can be ripped and then you'll have a differnt problem !

Hoover Recalls Self-Propelled Vacuum Cleaners

Consumer Complaints
Hoover Company Inc. has agreed to pay a $750,000 civil penalty to settle allegations that it failed to report to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) the sale of vacuum cleaners with defective on-off switches that can overheat and cause the vacuum cleaner to catch fire.
In April 2005, Hoover conducted a recall of 636,000 Hoover Self-Propelled Upright Vacuum Cleaners because of defective on-off switches.
In June 2004, after CPSC received notice of several vacuum cleaner incidents, the Commission staff requested Hoover provide a full report of incident information. In July 2004, when Hoover submitted a full report, it had notice of 260 consumer incidents, of which 141 involved reports of fire. Additionally, there was one report of a minor burn injury.
Hoover first learned of a vacuum cleaner switch on one of these units overheating and melting in April 1999.
Federal law requires firms to report to CPSC immediately (within 24 hours) after obtaining information reasonably supporting the conclusion that a product contains a defect which could create a substantial risk of injury to the public, presents an unreasonable risk of serious injury or death, or violates a federal safety standard.
These Hoover Self-Propelled Upright Vacuum Cleaners are plastic, upright vacuums with the brand name �Hoover� and words "Self Propelled" printed on the front of the product.
Only those Hoover Self-Propelled Upright Vacuum Cleaners manufactured between May 1998 and November 1999 are included in the recall that is the subject of this penalty.

Stopped working - warning light on


There is an electronic circuit board on the motor that may have gone bad and will have to replaced, part # 06836740 and sells for around $75.00, for model S516. But if this a S316, then it could be the speed control mounted on the motor, Part # 04416342 and sells for around $83.00. Both of these models are Cat Naad Dog so you need the model number berfore you order a part.
