Why is it my vacuum cleaner keeps shuting off after ten minutes. i have a Hoover wind tunnel uh70086


Sounds like it has an overheat problem and is shutting down to protect itself. Make sure the exhaust filter is clean and that there are no blockages. Hoover UH70086 WindTunnel Cyclonic Pet Rewind Plus Upright Vacuum Parts...

Dyson D15 shut off while in use


Hi Mary Ellen,

I am sorry to hear you are having difficulty with your DC15. Most Dyson vacuums have a built in safety system that stops the machine if it begins to overheat. This usually happens because the filter needs washing or your machine is blocked. If your machine turns off on its own, unplug it and leave it for at least an hour to cool down. Remember to check the filter and look for blockages before re-starting. For more information on completing these checks please visit:

It was working fine and them just stopped it is not that old and was not making noises HELP!!


Vacuum cleaners have electric motors in them that require proper airflow to pass over them to keep them cool. Many vacuum cleaners have a thermal (heat) sensitive shut off mechanism built in. This mechanism should prevent the burn out of the motor. If you run a vacuum too long with a clogged hose or clogged filters (especially bagless vacuums) or clogged bags, that is essentially choking the vacuum for air and not allowing it to breath properly. This will cause it to overheat and shut down. Most of the big box store purchased vacuums have very thin wires in the motor windings and can only do this a few times before the motor completely fails. If your vacuum has been shutting down, then cooling off and restarting after about 30 to 45 minutes, then shutting down after only a few minutes of use, your machine is probably clogged up or the filters are compacted.

Vaccume shuts off after 5 minutes of using. will only start after sitting for hours.


This sounds like an overheat condition. You must have plugged air flow, so rather than cause a fire, the unit shuts down until cooled. Find and remove the blockage << Not always an easy task.

The vacuum stopped working while i was using it...did all the troubleshooting tips.. still not working.


Sometimes the vacuum will overheat, if this happens the vacuum will shut down to protect it from damage.

Unplug the vacuum, and let it sit unused 30 minutes.

Please let me know if this has solved your problem.

Shark infinity vacuum nv31c motor overheats. everything is clean and free of clogs. it will work for 3-4 minutes, then shut off. does the motor need replacing?


Mine takes longer to shut down, but I just started having this same problem. I wish I knew what's causing it so I could fix it. I think maybe we had a power surge at some point when I was using it last week. :(

Vacuum shuts off after short run time . it will turn back on after about 5 minutes but then dies again


Hi,
This is overheating and tripping the thermal cut-out on the motor.
You need to strip off all filters, clean or replace them (if caked solid). Very often panel filters can be cleaned by knocking them on an outside wall, then a good blow to clear loose dust.
Dyson's often overheat if the filters are not cleaned.
Make sure belts are in good condition, and beater brushes only contact the floor slightly. You need to adjust this hight for different floor surfaces - or it will overheat on thick carpet.

Panasonic MC-V5258 Upright has been turning off after about 5 minutes of use for several months. It has been taken into the shop where it was bought at least one time and evidently it wasn't fixed. I think...


Lind a, I don't recall if this unit has an overheat sensor. Try it again and if it shuts off see if the vac feels very hot, but do not touch the switch, leave it in the on position, to cool down. When a vac overheats it will generally restart on its own in about 20 minutes if it has a heat sensor on the motor.
If your vac restarts, you either have a defective sensor or a blockage in the hose or filter area causing the motor to overheat.
If it does not restart your problem is electrical, sticking carbon brush on motor, bad cord, etc.

Our Hoover U5780-900 stopped working while using the attachment. We let it cool down for about 5 minutes and it fired back up. It appears to shut down when it overheats.
