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.

I have a Hoover wind tunnel that suddenly stopped working when the cannister got full. Once emptied still would not start. Anything to fix this? Does it have an automatic shut off when full?

If the airflow is restricted the motor will overheat. Most vacuums have a thermal heat sensor built into the motor which will shut the motor off until it cools down.

My hoover wind tunnel just quit while vacuuming. It is dead??? Two years old used about every other week? Any suggestions?

Some Wind Tunnels by Hoover have a poor design in the switch on the handle. Sometimes the switch does not turn on all the way and will stop running. Other times you can't turn the unit off.

How do you change the Hoover wind tunnel belts?

If you turn the vacuum over there will be (4) screws that hold on the base cover for the roller brush. Remove the screws and the cover and you can get to the belt(s). You can get replacement belts here:

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.

Take the brush belt and slip it over the pull into the groove. Then take the flat belt and hook onto the motor shaft and then pull belt over pull and push it around the entire pulley. It can be difficult but after the first time it is easy. You have to push the belt up with your thumbs so the belt will wrap all the way around

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.
