    I had the asme problem, cleaning or replacing the filters fixes it.

    Vacuum would abruptly shut off while in operation.  I emptied and cleaned the filter and partially disassembled the brush spindle looking for a clog but to no avail.  Then I read Thomas61's comment and found my foad filter was filthy too.  I had no idea there was another filter on the unit much less one that required occasional maintenance.  Since cleaning the foam filter the unit no longer shuts off abruptly but lacks the suction it used to possess.

I had same problem. Turned out to be the filter that sits above the waste cannister. Remove the waste cannister. There is a little orange lever that releases the filter. It was caked with dirt not allowing any air flow causing the motor to overheat.

This foam filter gets dirty pretty fast.

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.

My mach 5 vhoover vacuum cleaner shuts itself off alsomst as though it is overheated


No your motor is going bad. Have you ever owned an electric fan. If you can remember when the motor started going bad on it the fan would quit turning on its own.Your vacuum is doing the same thing. Please call Hoover and order a new one or go to ebay type in the make and model..

Hello,We have an Hoover Mach 5 Cyclonic vacuum that has no suction. We have cleaned and checked all hoses, belts & filters. Please help us.


With this model, remove the dust tank, and turn it on, check for suction at the lower intake. If you have suction, install the tank and remove hose, and check for suction there. keep following until youn lose it. Then you problem will be between those 2 areas

Hoover U5780-900 Windtunnel a month 1/2 old just started stopping when it is running and wont turn back on for a few hours why?


The motor has a thermal protection sensor on it. So your motor may be going bad, it is pulling to many amps for some reason, could be a clog somewhere or a bad bearing in the motor.

Hoover mach6 the brushes don't turn


Replace the skinny belt, but here's the kicker. turn the belt inside out so that the writing is on the inside and sits against everything. Thats what I did and I have used it once and it worked well, Lets hope it'll keep working.

I HAVE A BRAND NEW HOOVER MACH-3 CYCLONIC THAT CUTS OFF EVERY FEW MINUTES. IT IS DRIVING ME CRAZY! IT'S LIKE AFTER 5 MINUTES OF VACUUMING IT HAS TO SIT FOR A LEAST AN HOUR THEN YOU CAN VACUUM FOR ANOTHER...


If it were mine and it was brand new I would bring it back and exchange it. It sounds like the motor is over heating and shutting off automatically. Does not sound good. My advice return it.

Hoover mach 5 only used 3 times


If the filters are ok, and there is no clog in the hose or dirt inlet down by the brushroll, then the motor protector is probably bad.
