Why is my hoover windtunnel vacuum cleaner shutting off?


Hi there! Sounds like the thermal protector is being activated. This is usually caused by a clog or a filter that needs to be cleaned or replaced. Follow the steps below to prevent the unit from shutting off.

1. Remove the hose completely.
2. Use a broom stick to gently loosen and clear hose of clogs.
3. Remove the bottom plate and brush-roll.
4. Use a wooden spoon or something similar to break up and remove any clogs from lower hose.
5. Check the primary filter behind the side grille. If it is dirty you may rinse it under running water and allow 24 hours to air dry outside the vacuum.
6. Remove the bag door. Clean the primary filter located on the vacuum under the bag. Rinse with water and allow 24 hours to air dry outside the vacuum. The primary and secondary filters should be replaced at least once a year.
7. Check that the bag is not full. If it is, replace the bag.

The vacuum will turn back on when it cools off. This can take up to an hour. Hope this was helpful!

Hoover Recalls Self-Propelled Vacuum Cleaners

Consumer Complaints
Hoover Company Inc. has agreed to pay a $750,000 civil penalty to settle allegations that it failed to report to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) the sale of vacuum cleaners with defective on-off switches that can overheat and cause the vacuum cleaner to catch fire.
In April 2005, Hoover conducted a recall of 636,000 Hoover Self-Propelled Upright Vacuum Cleaners because of defective on-off switches.
In June 2004, after CPSC received notice of several vacuum cleaner incidents, the Commission staff requested Hoover provide a full report of incident information. In July 2004, when Hoover submitted a full report, it had notice of 260 consumer incidents, of which 141 involved reports of fire. Additionally, there was one report of a minor burn injury.
Hoover first learned of a vacuum cleaner switch on one of these units overheating and melting in April 1999.
Federal law requires firms to report to CPSC immediately (within 24 hours) after obtaining information reasonably supporting the conclusion that a product contains a defect which could create a substantial risk of injury to the public, presents an unreasonable risk of serious injury or death, or violates a federal safety standard.
These Hoover Self-Propelled Upright Vacuum Cleaners are plastic, upright vacuums with the brand name �Hoover� and words "Self Propelled" printed on the front of the product.
Only those Hoover Self-Propelled Upright Vacuum Cleaners manufactured between May 1998 and November 1999 are included in the recall that is the subject of this penalty.
