Vacuum cleaner stops


The motor has a thermal reset built in. If the filters need replaced the motor can overheat. Filters should be replaced frequently to insure proper cleaning suction and motor life

Shark euro-pro x upright vacuum that shuts down every 15 minutes


These are prone to overheating. The manufacturer put a foam 'filter' wrap around the electric motor. This filter wrap insulates the motor, trapping heat inside, which causes overheating. The motor is very similar in form and function to the one in the Hoover Windtunnel, but the Windtunnel has no filter wrap. It doesn't overheat, and functions fine without it. There is a filter on the intake anyway. It's a redundant filter, and I have removed mine. It works fine now.

If you take the filter out yourself, you will need a special screwdriver for one of the motor cover screws. I guess they don't want the consumers opening it up.

I suggest taking it to a vacuum repair shop and explaining to them the problem, and asking them to remove the filter wrap from the motor.

Motor overheats and shuts off


The priamry cause of motors overheating is that the filters are not cleaned or replaced frequently enough. Once a motor starts to overheat, it has already been damaged and even after the filters have been cleaned, may well still overheat and cut-out. The motor has a built in over-current trip to protect itself (and you if it seriously overheated). This normally automatically resets itself, however if the motor has just about had it, the moemnt it is switched on, it just trips again.

Replacement motors are avaible on eBay for about £25, however repalcing one requires good DIY skills and tools.

Have a look at www.dysonmedic.com and see if you feel you can tackle it yourself. If not, take it to a repair shop or call the Dyson helpline.

Vacuum shuts off after short run time . it will turn back on after about 5 minutes but then dies again


Hi,
This is overheating and tripping the thermal cut-out on the motor.
You need to strip off all filters, clean or replace them (if caked solid). Very often panel filters can be cleaned by knocking them on an outside wall, then a good blow to clear loose dust.
Dyson's often overheat if the filters are not cleaned.
Make sure belts are in good condition, and beater brushes only contact the floor slightly. You need to adjust this hight for different floor surfaces - or it will overheat on thick carpet.

Vacume overheats and shuts down I replaced the motor.When it cools down it runs again.


The filters had to be cleaned out with air.
I replaced the motor for nothing.There are two filters and the cannister give them good cleanings with an air gun.

Dirt devil purpose for pets vacuum quit working


The motor overheats from the filter being clogged underneath the canister or the canister or both are clogged-without the air flow the motor overheats and shuts off as a precautionary measure.By letting the motor cool off it will start again but will turn off shortly if the filters are not properly cleaned.Hope this helps everyone.

Bosch vacuum Motor turns off after a few minutes


It sounds like you have a motor protection fuse that resets after an overheat/cooling cycle.These work the same as a circuit breaker in your house with the difference being they can reset themselves.The Bosch will also shut down if there is insufficient airflow and I would check your filters first.1) Pull the filter and let the machine run.Do not pick up debris when you operate without a filter-it will be drawn straight into the motor.If it runs fine without shutting down, all you need to do is change your filter.If it shuts down again check the external hose for any blockages.Also check the throat from the powerhead for any blockages.If you continue to have the same problem then you will need to replace the fuse because at this point you have eliminated all the other likely problems.Good Luck-Scott

Loss of suction bissell vacume


that is normal for the vacume to shut off if the motor overheats you must keep teh dirt cup clean and empty and all the filters clean, when you empty the dirt cup if you have a lot of pet hair take the hose off and make sure that it is clean as well, and do not try to pick up any of those cleaning wipes that will stop it up real quick

Hoover Windtunnel shuts off


I found the following solution on this website. I have searched for hours and finally found this solution, it works! I HAD the same problem after cleaning the filter mentioned below, it is now working like it was new.

***by maverick_bea***
yes this machine has a thermal protector in it to shut off the machine if it gets to hot, this is normal. if there is no clogs in the hoses or in the machine then you will need to wash the filter at the top of the machine. you will have to remove the dirt cup and at the top you should see a half moon orange, well inside of this piece is the washable filter, clean and let it dry completly before putting back into machine. if this gets dirty and has not been cleaned, you can lose alot of suction. in some cases if this filter is not cleaned it can cause the machine to overheat so bad that it can damage the motor.

U5180-910 vacuum shuts off on own


I had same problem. Turned out to be the filter that sits above the waste cannister. Remove the waste cannister. There is a little orange lever that releases the filter. It was caked with dirt not allowing any air flow causing the motor to overheat.

This foam filter gets dirty pretty fast.
