    Thank you for your reply. But that's part of the problem - we can't find the manual. I have tried to on line, with no success. Where might the fuse be located? fyi- i am able to turn on the vacuum for short periods, but within a 10-15 minutes it shuts itself off, any ideas?

    Thanks again,

    vacuun is used for about 15-20 mins. Than shuts off. Wait for a while and does the same thing. Motor does not seem hot. Is there a reset for the vacuum?

I don't know about this particular model, but if you did opperate a full vacuum cleaner until it got hot and went off on it's own, this means you might have overloaded the motor and blown the protection fuse. in this case, you might have to change it. refer to the owner's manual about overload protection.

    btw, your fyi was really helpful, if you can turn the vacuum on, this totally eliminates the fuse as the cause of the problem.
    check the suction power by placing your hand to block the hose, normally it should pull on your hand, if its weak this means that something is blocking the air way.
    try this:
    - check if there is a removable filter that you can take out and clean.
    - check the air way for any thing that might be stuck and blocking it. check the hose, brushes, and remove any thing you find stuck in them.
    - also touch the vacuum body right after it goes off on its own and see if it is up normally hot.
    i hope this does it for you, post again and tell me what happens.
    good luck.

I was in the middle of vacuuming and all of a sudden the vacuum just stopped working. I looked, thought the bag was full so I changed it out and nothing it will not turn back on again.

If the bag was really full it could have restricted the airflow and caused it to get too hot and shut off. If it does not have a mechanical reset button it will come back on after it cools down. The filters may need replaced too.

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.

My dirt devil breeze turbo shut off while I was vacuuming. I've checked 3 outlets and nothing happened

It may have overheated from a restriction or clog. If so it will come back on after it cools down.

My vacuum cleaner will not stay on

It may need a new switch. If it runs for a while and shuts off it maybe overheating and need new filters.

Reset switch

There is no reset button it as a Thermal Cut Off

This vacuum cleaner has a special thermostat that protects the cleaner in case of motor overheating. If the cleaner suddenly

shuts off, turn the switch off and unplug the cleaner.

Check the cleaner for a possible source of overheating such as a blocked hose or clogged filters. If these conditions are found, fix

them and wait at least 30 minutes before attempting to use the cleaner. After the 30-minute period, plug the cleaner back in and

turn on the switch. If the cleaner still does not run, then call 1-800-282-2886 for customer assistance
