SOURCE: Motor overheating

Had the same problem 2 years ago. Washing filters only a short-term solution. After contacting Dyson, they replaced the shroud and cyclone under warranty. This cured the problem from July 05 until last week, when the motor has started to overheat again and cuts out on the high temperature safety trip. Mine is out of warranty now, so am unsure how to proceed. Maybe buy the parts they sent me before, but reckon they'll be expensive.

Ok, lfitz, I fixed my problem. First I called the Sears Service Center. They told me that I would have to drop it off there, and they would send it to Orlando to get looked at. The whole process would take about 2 weeks and who knows how much money. So I decided to become my own Hoover technician. It turns out that my original diagnosis was right about the chord that electrically connects the power on/off switch at the top of the handle to the rest of the vacuum. This was extremely easy to fix so please don't be scared away, although it does require a little philips-head screwdriver action. As always, make sure the vacuum is unplugged before you start. On the back of the vacuum, there is the hook that you wrap the electrical chord around for storage (the top one). On either side of that hook are two screws. Unscrew those. Now, the small piece of plastic that has the hook on it can be carefully pulled back, or removed if you need to. Inside, I found the detached end of a coiled black electrical chord that looks kind of like an A/C adapter. This chord should be plugged into the bottom of the metal shaft that slides in and out to allow you to adjust the height of the handle. Now, adjust the metal shaft so that you can plug the black chord back into the base. Push the chord in until you hear it click. Now, put the plastic piece back in place and put the screws back in and you're done. Plug it in and give it a try. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Overheating Hoover

Most likely caused by a lack of airflow. Check to see if you have airflow at the end of the hose. If not, Remove all of the hoses and ensure that they are not clogged. If there is airflow through the hose; check the air inlet immediately aft of the brushroll, inside the nozzle. This is a very common place for clogs to form.

Also note: contrary to some manufacturers claims, you can not clean (or wash, for that matter;) a hepa filter. The small particles are too embedded in the filter media to ever get completely removed, and the act of cleaning tends to damage the filters, even if you can't see the damage. This is why bagless life-spans, on average, are half the length of the life-spans of bagged vacuums.

Good luck,

After cleaning the foam filter, it's also helpful to pull apart the cone shaped insert in the canister. Twist the top to remove the cone, remove three screws from inside the small cylinder, then remove the 4 screws around the base of the cone. Then you can wash all of the dirt out of the honeycomb-type cone-shaped piece. Make sure it's all dry before putting it back together or it'll turn to mud. Mine worked like new after cleaning the foam filter and the honeycomb cone.

Have a Hoover windtunnel vacuum and it keeps on overheating and shutting off. have checked all filters and they seem fine


Let's just hope, OK ?
1) Small possibility the vacuum is plugged up.
Take it all apart and clean every part, perhaps that will help.
Compressed air is really helpful.
2) Worse luck.
The bearings of the motor are failing, it is just about "toasted", and it is time to find a new one, as the bearings are neither lubricate-able or replaceable.
God bless your efforts.

Why won't My Hoover savvy won't turn on


Hi Denell! Your vacuum has a thermal protector that will shut it off automatically if it becomes overheated. This is usually caused by a clog or a filter that needs to be cleaned or replaced. Follow these quick steps to check your vacuum for clogs.

1. Remove the dirt cup and the dirt cup lid.
2. Grasp pre-filter frame and pull up and out of dirt cup.
3. Separate the pre-filter and Hepa cartridge filter. The pre-filter can be cleaned with a brush and then rinsed with water. Allow 24 hours to air dry.
4. Clean the Hepa cartridge filter by tapping either of the ends until dirt stops falling from the filter. The Hepa filter should be replaced once a year.
5. Remove the hose from both ends. Use a broom stick to gently loosen and clear any clogs from hose.
6. Use a wooden spoon or something similar to loosen and remove any clogs from the lower hose

The vacuum will turn back on after it cools off. This can take up to an hour. If the vacuum has been off for over 24 hours we recommend taking your vacuum in to a service center for repair. Follow the link to locate the nearest authorized service center to you.

Hey there! The thermal protector sensor can not be replaced. It protects the vacuums motor from overheating and burning out. If the vacuum is overheating, follow these quick trouble-shooting steps.

1. Remove the hose from the vacuum from both ends.
2. Use a broom stick to gently loosen and remove any clogs from the hose.
3. Remove the bottom plate and the brushes. Use a wooden spoon to gently break up and remove any clogs from the lower hose.
4. Clean the pleated filter inside the dirt cup by tapping it against the trash can until the dirt stops falling. This filter should be replaced at least once a year.
5. The pre-filter can be cleaned with a brush and then rinsed with water. Allow 24 hours to air dry outside the dirt cup.
6. Clean the secondary filter located behind the grill in the bottom of cleaner cavity. Remove the screw, and grill to access filter.
7. Rinse the filter in cold water with a mild detergent to clean. Allow 24 hours to air dry outside the vacuum.

Following these steps should stop the cleaner from overheating. Hope this helps!

Possible problem with thermal indicator?


Remove all filters and the dust bin and leave the vacuum motor run for a while. If it does not shut off it may mean your filters are clogged and need replaced. Even washable filters should be replaced frequently because they become clogged and restrict the airflow. You can't always tell if a filter is clogged by looking at it.

Vac runs for about 15 mins. then stops


The unit is not getting the proper airflow and the motor is overheating to shut down.

You should check/clean out the filter in the dirt chamber there. If the filter is more than 1 year old, you should replace the filter.

I have two older Filter Queen (brown vacuum cleaners). Besides unclogging the hose area and making sure it is not filled with dirt, what else would cause the machine to run hot and have a high pitched...


High pitched sound is often caused by air leaks in air ducts. This will also cause hoover loosing sucking power and slightly overheating.

If the hoover is overheating a lot, then noise can also come from the motor. In that case the part must be rplaced.

Try replacing the cone filter, the secondary filter, and the insulation at the top of the machine.
If that does not fix the problem, then the hoover must be taken apart to clean or repair the air duct.

I have a Hoover Wind Tunnel bagless mach 4.7 vacuum that shuts off after about 30 seconds. I suspect it is overheating, but there are no clogged lines. The on/off switch is in good working order. Help!!


is your filter clean? you should be able to see the pleats in the filter pretty clearly. also the metal screen that is next to the filter should be clean as well. if the problem continues it could be a faulty thermal protector ( a device that shuts the machine of when it over heats. )
