The motor has a shut off when it gets too hot. Wait 30 minutes to an hour to turn it back on. The airway is blocked, causing motor to get hot. Check filter, clean it out, check hose for clog.

Vax stopped mid vacuuming,as though fuse in plug has blown.checked fuse,OK.no lights lit.vax not working.


Most vacuums have thermal protection on the motor that will shut it off if it gets too hot. If you can turn it off, wait 10-15 minutes, and it works when you turn it back on, that's what is going on. Now, the motor shouldn't normally get that hot, so your next challenge is finding out why. Check for any blockages in the air flow or cooling vents, and if the motor also powers something like a beater bar, make certain that it turns relatively freely.

I was using the Dyson, turned off to empty tank, will not turn on again, I have checked outlet it is ok. Does it have some kind of safety if it gets to hot.Thanks


hi.
there is a thermal fuse built into the motor of all dysons that will cut the power if the motor gets too hot.
when the motor cools down again, the fuse will normally reset itself.

try the hoover again after a few hours and see if it works again.
also change the fuse in the plug to check that that has not blown

My iron model f1060 won't even get hot or the green light won't come on. I haven't had a year yet.


If you have a warranty I would suggest bringing it bak and exchanging it. Sounds like you could have a blown fuse, shorted wire, or a fried device.

Machine wont turn on


Either the motor is fried or the belt is burnt. If you can't hear it turn on, then check for any fuses that could have blown. They will be glass tube type. If fuse is good, motor or power supply could be bad. You can test them with voltmeter.

Vacuum shut off


The motor gets hot when airway is blocked. Check your filter for debris deep in the pleats, clean it out, also check the hose for blockage.

VX3000c Keeps shutting down after a few minutes of use


it has a thermal fuse in the motor compartment. it is indicating a over heated motor. check the exhaust for clogs or feel the motor it should be warm but not hot to the touch
if its just warm, the thermal is lying to you and needs to be replaced

May have a problem with the motor protector or the motor itself. The motor thermo protector will shut the motor off if it senses it getting hot. So it could be bad.

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.

Motor gets hot in moments and shuts off


True, the motor has safety measures to stop it from overheating... that's why it shut down. You smelled something, so some kind of damage was done. It's possible that the over temp switch itself got fried. Doesn't sound too good from here.

Hoover wind tunnel vacuum cleaner shuts off during use


Check the inlet down by the brush roll to make sure it isn't clogged. If not and the hose isn't clogged, then probably the thermo protector (part #28382093) maybe bad. It is mounted near the motor. Could be motor Part #43576188. But I would suspect a clog in the inlet or hose, or the thermo protector has gone bad.
