Hi,

This vacuum has an automatic shutoff should the motor overheat. This could be caused by a variety of things. The most common reasons would be a dirty filter, full dirt cup or something clogging the hose.

If you find something like that is the problem, clear it, then wait 30 minutes for the motor to cool off before trying to start it again.

Should that not be the problem, you can call 1-800-282-2886 for information on servicing.

I hope this helps. If it does, I would appreciate a vote or comment. Thanks,

Handie Andie

Turns on and then shuts off


there is a self reseting thermal cut out sensing motor temperature. The motor is overheating due to lack of ventilation, probably obstructed by dust and stuff. Vac needs to be taken apart and cleaned to make sure.

There is a thermal sensor in the motor which shuts power off if it gets too hot but usually it won't turn back on until it cools down. It seems you might have a defective switch

HOOVER WINDTUNNEL SELF PROPELLED OVERHEATING AND SHUTTING OFF


It sounds like it is overheating because of a blocked flow of air that keeps the motor cool. Check for a blockage from the area of the
roller brush through the hose to where it goes into the bag.

Hoover Windtunnel shuts down after 15 minutes


Might be that its not exausting enough heat & stutting its self down..

Try cleaning all the filters & the hepa filter..
This will increase air flow & maybe fix the issue..

Vacuum shut off


Take your vacuum to your local vacuum shop for $30 or less they should be able to service it and solve the problem. The other problem could be the carbon brushes on the motor are shot. This should be about a $25 repair on such a small motor.

The Hoover WindTunnel self propelled is a machine that we see in our retail stores (Vacuums Unlimited) constantly. The benefit of having a supposed "self-propelled" machine wears of quickly after the numerous time you will need to take this machine in for repair.

It's unfortunate you've had to spend so much money already on repairing this machine. I know you've said you've already replace the belts and filters, but if you want you can check out a video we made on repairing the Hoover Windtunnel.

If you are looking for a reliable upright, at GoVacuum we'd recommend the Sebo X4 upright (http://www.govacuum.com/seauxseupvac.html). The machine is incredibly reliable and easy to maintain. Thus far, we haven't had one warranty repairs come through our doors. The machine itself has a lifelong warranty on the belt because the machine automatically shuts off the motor if an obstruction is detected, preventing any undue stress on the motor or belt.

Where is the reset button on the electolux 2100


There is no reset button on the 2100. If it shuts down, the indicator lights will tell you why. If it has been overheated, there is a self-resetting switch which will shut the motor down and the light will come on to indicate that particular problem. When you turn the machine off and then back on, it should re-start provided you have given the motor ample time to cool down. This will not solve the problem as to why it overheated in the first place. There are also lights and auto-switches that will control full bag and no bag. The machine will not run with no bag and a full bag will cause it to run for a few seconds and shut off.

Kenmore direct drive will no longer self-propell


There may also be a reset button. If the brushes get stuck the unit can shut off power to the brushes to keep a total melt down from occurring. The reset button should return power in these types of vacuums.
