Your thermal cutout is tripping. This only happens when the motor heat gets very high, and the reason it takes a while to turn back on is that the motor has to cool down before it will reset. Ensure that absolutely every air pathway is clear, because a lack of airflow will overheat your motor. If they are, you have probably blown a motor bearing, which unfortunately is not economically feasible to repair since it requires a whole new motor.

Reset button on hoover wind tunnel


Hi there! There is no reset button on the cleaner. The vacuum has a thermal protector sensor that will shut the vacuum off when the motor reaches a certain temperature. This is usually caused by a clog or filter that needs to be cleaned or replaced. Be sure to check the hoses for clogs and clean and replace any filters if needed. The vacuum will turn back on when it cools off, this can take up to an hour. Good luck!

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.

Check the filter above the dirt tank. If you take out the dirt cup and look where in slides into the machine, there is a filter that is probably dirty. It can be cleaned or replaced

Vacuum shuts down after 5-10 min of use


It may have a problem of overheating. If you havn't cleaned out the thing that holds all the dirt and dust, you may want to consider doing that. There might be a thermostat in it that shuts down whenever it thinks it's to hot.

No suction on Hoover Wind Tunnel.


Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

First this is a common problem on ALL bagless vacuum cleaners. Usually it takes longer then 1 day however.

Is there no suction in the suction hose, or is it not suctioning from the floor?

Most people buy a bagless vacuum once, then return to a bagged one after their bad experience, you are not alone!

Please give me the model number to your Hoover, (found on the bottom or the back of the vacuum on a foil label).

Thanks,

I have little suction when using the hose attachment


Check the hose for a blockage. If you remove the hose, if there is suction at the point where the hose hooks to the back of the vac, then the hose is clogged. If no suction there, check filters, make sure they are clean.

Vaccum overheating


Either the motor protector is bad, or you have a clog in the hose or the dirt inlet by the brush roll. Are the filters clean? It is also possible that there is a problem with the motor.

Hoover wind tunnel


A clog or partial clog is what causes the motor to overheat, then a thermo protector will cut off and the motor will stop until it cools down. So either you do have a clog, in the hose or down by the brush roll. If they are clear, and the filters are clean, then maybe the thermo protector is bad and needs to be replaced.

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.
