When I vacuum with my Riccaar after 8 minutes it stops running and have to wait a while the press the thermal switch. Could I have a bad thermal switch?


If the switch was bad it likely would not run at all. It is probably getting hot because of a clog somewhere.

I have a Hoover JA1600 001. The foot operated on/off switch will no longer turn the appliance on. I have cleaned all filters and waited for a couple of hours in case it was a thermal safety event but to no...


Thermal safety switch may be bad and not resetting. There is always a small filter somewhere that everyone misses and does not keep clean. Carpet Fresh will clog up filters pretty quick.

I don't believe there is an external thermal reset. It is most likely built into the motor.

Stopped working - what could it be?


The first thing you should inspect is the power cord. Check it to make sure it is not damaged from the plug up to the vacuum. If it is damaged, you should replace it. If the cord checks out ok the next thing to check is the thermal switch located near the motor, not all vacuums are equipped with a thermal switch though. The thermal switch is a resettable switch, if it trips you can either manually reset it or it may reset itself. The last thing that you should check is the vacuum cleaner motor, If the vacuum still has no power it will most likely have to be replaced.

I have a Hoover Mach 2.7 Windtunnel that shut off during use and wouldn't turn back on. Was doing kitchen floor and running fine. Though a breaker tripped but didn't...what could it be?


Hello,

It sounds like your thermal reset switch inside of your Hoover may have gone bad. When a vacuum cleaner doesn't turn on it, it's either caused by one of four things.
  1. Electrical Short in your Cord.
  2. Plug has gone bad.
  3. Motor of your vacuum is faulty
  4. The On / Off Switch has gone bad, and/or your Thermal Reset Switch has gone bad
Since this happened while you were vacuuming, I would guess that this is either your electrical plug that's shorted out, or that your thermal reset switch has shorted out. Your model Hoover was built with a protection system that is supposed to automatically shut down your machine if it senses any excessive heat. This mechanism is controlled by a Thermal reset switch which is located in motor compartment. This part is notoroious for failing, even when there's no overheating that's occured.

Before you disassemble the entire machine to check this part though, I would try testing the On / Off switch in your machine, as well as testing the electrical cord, which will also let you know if your plug has gone bad.

Here's a link to a solution I've done here on FixYa explaining how to check the On / Off switch;
http://www.fixya.com/support/r4530569-replace_off_switch_hoover_windtunnel

While you have this apart, you can use the same electrical tester to test your cord. Simply put one end of the test into the terminal from the switch, and the other end of the test on one of the metal prongs that plugs into the wall. See if you have continuity here, if not, switch to the other prong of the plug and see if this helps.

If not continuity, this means your plug, or your cord has failed. If you do have continuity, this means that it's either the On / off switch, or the Thermal Reset Switch that's gone bad.

Here's a link to the solution that I've done on here showing how to replace the Thermal Reset Switch on your vacuum cleaner:

Bravetti Slow Cooker won"t heat


Well if your o.k with soldering...or know a handyman...it more than likely IS repairable. The manufacture puts in a thermal fuse that blows when the temparature gets to high. Radi0 shack stocks them...and might know of a local person to test / fix it. http://www.google.com/products?rls=HPIB,HPIB:2010-05,HPIB:en&q=thermal+fuse&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wf Here is what it looks like. AND you need to get the RIGHT tempature rated replacement. Hopefully a 10-20 dollar fix will save you 50-120 for a new one. Maybe you will get lucky and the fuse clips in like a vehicle fuse. http://www.radioshack.com/search/index.jsp?kwCatId=&kw=thermal%20fuse&origkw=thermal%20fuse&sr=1 Good luck Richard

I have a Miele turbo plus solaris and the red warning light is on. This prevents the vacuum from working. I have changed the bag so I am not sure what to do?


I had this problem with a different model. It's caused by a thermal cutout switch in the motor. My problem was a result of a filter being removed and the bag not seated correctly, hence dirt got into the motor and clogged the turbine, reducing airflow through the motor and causing the over heating.

If your motor runs at all, you probably have a blockage. Replace the filter inside the bag compartment just before the motor vent. Check the hose isn't blocked. Check the exit air filter.

If your turbine is clogged, it's a big disassembly job best done by a professional. If you really want to know how to cure it and feel you can tackle it yourself, email me. alan_at_alanjohnston_dot_com.

If your motor doesn't run at all and the light just quietly comes on, you have a break somewhere in the thermal protection circuit, either in the wiring (unlikely) or inside the circuitry buried inside the motor itself. I had an open on the thermal switch where the combination of heat and vibration deoldered the thermal switch from its board.

Hope this helps.

DC07 cutting out


Hello,
I sounds that your thermal fuse is cutting out. By no means try to bypass this thermal fuse. It protects your product from catching on fire. Replace the thermal fuse at a service center. How old is this product?
Okay,
