Question about Dirt Devil Hoover Uh70085 Pet Cyclonic? Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

My Hoover Pet Cyclonic upright stopped working while I was using it. The bottom felt really hot so I emptied the canister & laid the vacuum down with the bottom in the air to cool off & went back in an hour or so, I even tried a different plug in but it still won't turn back on. I don't know what else to try.

    Did you solve this problem? If not, see my solution posted today. Did you clean out the main secondary filter underneath the dirt cup?

Need help installing belt on Hoover self propelled upright vacuum

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover Ultra U6430-900 Wind Tunnel Bagged Upright. The best way to install the belt on a Hoover to replace one or both of the belts @ the same time for the best cleaning. The average belt change is every 4 to 6 months for best results. There is a tool that looks like a screwdriver that has a right or left angle on the end that serves as a belt puller and to hook the belt(s) onto the brushroll 1st and then take your puller and then pull or stretch the belt onto the motor pulley. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

SOURCE: Problems with Eureka 5892AVZ Bagless Upright

You may be using the wand/hose without an attachment on it. The attachments on my dyson always allow some air to flow to by, it may be the same on the Eureka. If air flow is completely stopped the cyclone will shut down and then the hair/dust/whatever will flow to the filter. So don't let the air flow be completely shut off during use.

SOURCE: Hoove Cyclonic Bagless vacuum shuts off after only a few minutes

The motor has a protective overload cutout device to stop it from over heating - this can be caused by a blockage of some sort in the hose or brushroll compartment or blocked filters.
After checking the above and it still cuts out, take it back under gurantee

Why is it my vacuum cleaner keeps shuting off after ten minutes. i have a Hoover wind tunnel uh70086


Sounds like it has an overheat problem and is shutting down to protect itself. Make sure the exhaust filter is clean and that there are no blockages. Hoover UH70086 WindTunnel Cyclonic Pet Rewind Plus Upright Vacuum Parts...

I have the same problem as discussed above. My Hoover Pet Cyclonic upright stops working while using it. The bottom feels hot when this happens. When it first occurred, I emptied the canister and even...


The vacuum is probably getting hot and the thermal sensor in the motor is shutting it off and then allowing it to come back on after it cools down. You mentioned replacing the secondary filters, replace the exhaust filter too.
If replacing all the filters did not solve it you may have a clog or restriction somewhere causing the loss of suction and the overheating.

Hi My Hoover wind tunnel cyclonic stopped working when i was using it. I tried different plug even then it doesnt work . What to do??


If the motor stopped running, it most likely did because it was not being cooled, becuause something was stopping up the air flow. If you have cleaned the secondary filter out and it still stops while running, then remove the exhaust filter cartridge and try it then. If it does not stop running now, then the problem is the previous models like this had a foam filter as the exhaust filter, not a heppa cartridge filter. You will not hurt the machine by running it without the heppa cartridge. Cut a foam filter to fit to replace it. I do not think Hoover knows this yet.

I have a customer working on this problem today (Sept 2010) I have repaired machines for 30 years. This filter is meant to just catch the tiny particles from getting back into the air. However, it worked fine on the previous machines with the foam filter here instead of this Heppa cartridge.

My dc05 gathers dust and pet hair in the filter at the top of the cylinder and does not pass into the cylinder. I have replaced the filters and the sponge.


you have lost the rubber insert at the bottom of the canister. The bottom of the center cone normally fits into this and blocks the bottom of the cone. It would have fallen out when you emptied it.

Hoover Cyclonic Fusion Vacuum overheats and shuts off.


If it gets too hot it will shut down for about an hour...it does that to protect the motor. A lot of tools and work appliances seem to have that feature nowadays.

Deodorizing the vacuum


First of all Clean out the vacum cleaner . Empty canister and take filter outside and hit on something to get all dust out . Now wash canister and filter with vinegar water and let dry before using vacum again. You might try using carpet fresh for pet odors on carpet and empty and clean canister and filter regularly. I own a cleaning business and this is a hard problem to solve with all vac. cleaners. Good Luck!!
